Intersil Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2007 Financial Results

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - July 18, 2007) - Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL)

--  Exceeds high end of revenue estimates
--  Finishes quarter with a book to bill well above one
--  Generates more than $72 million in free cash flow
    

Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a world leader in the design and manufacture of high performance analog semiconductors, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 29, 2007. Net revenues for the second quarter were $178.3 million, a 5% decrease from $187.6 million in the second quarter of 2006 and a 6% increase from $167.7 million in the first quarter of 2007.

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) Results

For the second quarter of 2007 gross margins were 57.2%. This compares to gross margins of 57.2% in the same quarter last year, and 57.4% in the first quarter of 2007. Operating margins were 18.1%, as compared to operating margins of 19.0% in the same quarter last year, and 19.7% in the first quarter of 2007. Net income was $31.2 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $43.0 million, or $0.30 per diluted share in the same quarter last year. For the first quarter of 2007, the Company reported net income of $33.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share.

Non-GAAP Results

For the second quarter of 2007, non-GAAP gross margins were 57.9%. This compares to gross margins of 57.8% for the same quarter last year, and 58.0% for the first quarter of 2007. Operating margins were 26.9%, as compared to operating margins of 27.7% for the same quarter last year, and 27.1% for the first quarter of 2007. Net income was $42.4 million, or $0.31 per diluted share. This compares to net income of $43.7 million, or $0.30 per diluted share for the same quarter last year, and $40.2 million, or $0.29 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2007.

"We are very pleased with our results for the second quarter," said Rich Beyer, Intersil's Chief Executive Officer. "Revenue growth exceeded our expectations due to strong end market demand, particularly in computing. We also increased earnings per share faster than revenue growth, which is a key objective of the Company. New product introductions and design activity continued at a healthy pace and will help provide future growth in the second half of 2007."

By end market, Intersil's second quarter revenues were as follows: high-end consumer (27.7% of revenues), computing (25.0% of revenues), industrial (24.5% of revenues), and communication (22.8% of revenues). "Our sales in the computing, industrial and consumer markets all grew sequentially, and due to the ramp of new products and strong design win momentum, we experienced stronger than expected sales in computing," said Dave Bell, Intersil's President and Chief Operating Officer. "Solid growth in the industrial market was driven by seasonal demand and our growing portfolio of general purpose proprietary products. As expected, we saw a slight sequential decline in the communications market as we further reduced our inventory at distributors."

During the quarter, the Company generated more than $72 million in free cash flow. The Company used this cash flow, together with existing cash, to repurchase approximately $120 million or 3.9 million shares of its stock under a previously announced stock repurchase program. The Company's Board of Directors has also authorized the payment of a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share of common stock. The payment of this dividend will be made on August 17, 2007 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 7, 2007.

Business Outlook

"For the third quarter, we expect continued solid sequential revenue growth as we enter a seasonally strong quarter for our computing and consumer related products," said Rich Beyer. "As a result, we currently anticipate third quarter revenues to increase between 6% and 8% from the second quarter. We expect GAAP earnings per diluted share of approximately $0.27 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of approximately $0.34."

NON-GAAP REPORTING

In addition to GAAP reporting, Intersil reports net income or loss, as well as earnings per share, gross margin and operating margin on a non-GAAP basis. This non-GAAP earnings information excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles and unusual items and their related tax effects. Intersil believes this non-GAAP earnings information provides meaningful insight into the Company's on-going performance and has therefore chosen to provide this information to investors for a more consistent basis of comparison and to emphasize the results of on-going operations. Intersil also uses this information internally to evaluate and manage the Company's operations and to determine performance based incentive compensation. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP net income is included in the tables below.
