Intersil Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Focused Product Development on the Top Ten Growth Drivers; Reduced Annual Operating Expenses by Approximately $40 Million

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 25, 2012) - Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a world leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 29, 2012.

GAAP Results of Operations

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $163.0 million, a 22.0% decrease from $209.1 million in the second quarter of 2011, and a 4.5% increase from $156.0 million in the first quarter of 2012. Changes in Intersil's second quarter end market product mix are summarized below.

             
    Q2 2012   Q2 2011   Q1 2012
End Market*   % of Revenue   % of Revenue   % of Revenue
Industrial & Infrastructure   59%   53%   56%
Personal Computing   25%   25%   25%
Consumer   17%   22%   19%
*Note: Percentages may not calculate precisely due to rounding
 

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2012 was 54.5%, compared with gross margin of 58.2% in the same quarter last year, and slightly lower than the first quarter of 2012 at 54.6%, primarily due to product mix. 

Operating margin was negative 5.7% during the second quarter. Net loss for the second quarter of 2012 was $14.5 million, or $0.11 per share, compared with net income of $21.8 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, in the same quarter last year, and net loss of $3.3 million, or $0.03 per share, in the first quarter of 2012. GAAP earnings per share were adversely affected by an $8.3 million restructuring charge.

Non-GAAP Results of Operations

Non-GAAP operating income, net income and earnings per share exclude the effects of equity-based compensation, intangible amortization, restructuring, certain tax adjustments and unusual expenses.

Non-GAAP operating income during the second quarter of 2012 was $14.4 million, or 8.8% of revenue. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $9.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted share.

"Two important goals were accomplished during the second quarter," said Dave Bell, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We focused nearly all our development resources on our carefully chosen Top Ten Growth Drivers that we're confident will drive significant growth beginning in 2013. We also reduced annual operating expenses by $40 million to enable us to achieve our target operating model at a lower revenue level."

At the end of the second quarter, Intersil's cash totaled $316.1 million. Intersil reduced its long term debt by $25 million to $150.0 million. Free cash flow was negative $35.2 million during the second quarter which included a $46.6 million one-time tax payment. During the quarter, the company reduced inventory by $4.7 million.

Intersil's Board of Directors has authorized the payment of a quarterly dividend of $0.12 per share of common stock. The payment of this dividend will be made on August 24, 2012 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 14, 2012.

Third Quarter 2012 Outlook

  • Revenue is expected to be between $156 million and $163 million (-4% to 0% sequentially)
  • Gross margin is expected to be flat to slightly down
  • R&D expenses are expected to be approximately $40 million ($37 million excluding equity-based compensation)
  • SG&A expenses are expected to be approximately $32 million ($29 million excluding equity-based compensation)
  • Total equity-based compensation is expected to be approximately $6.4 million
  • Amortization of intangibles is expected to be approximately $7.1 million
  • GAAP earnings per diluted share are expected to be between $0.02 and $0.04
  • Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are expected to be between $0.10 and $0.12

"Our bookings rate grew during most of the second quarter, but began to deteriorate in June. We closed the second quarter with a book-to-bill ratio slightly less than one," said Bell. "Given continued uncertainty about the worldwide economy, we are forecasting sub-seasonal revenue for the third quarter. However, our significantly reduced operating expenses will drive strong EPS improvement in the third quarter."

About Non-GAAP Financial Results
The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is intended to be considered together with the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on non-GAAP financial measures, please see the reconciliations of such measures in the tables on page eight of this release. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Intersil's performance and liquidity by excluding certain expenses and expenditures that may not be indicative of recurring core business operating results. During the quarter ended July 1, 2011, we revised current quarter and historical presentation of non-GAAP financial information to exclude equity-based compensation in addition to previously excluded intangible amortization, acquisition charges, certain tax adjustments and one-time costs. Management feels this change aligns our non-GAAP presentation with that of our closest peers and increases comparability of our results with published earnings estimates widely available on the Internet.
