CAMARILLO, Calif., March 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq:SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, today reported unaudited financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2018, which ended January 28, 2018.   Net sales computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), for fourth quarter and for fiscal year 2018 were $140.6 million and $587.8 million, respectively, after being reduced by $1.5 million and $16.2 million of share-based compensation associated with the previously-announced issuance of a Warrant to Comcast.  Excluding the offset associated with the Warrant, net sales were $142.1 million and $604.1 million, respectively (“non-GAAP net sales”).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP, this release includes a non-GAAP presentation of net sales, gross margin, operating expense, operating margin, net income, earnings per diluted share, and free cash flow.  The Company's measure of free cash flow is calculated as cash flow from operations less net capital expenditures.  The Company’s non-GAAP measures of net sales, gross margin, operating expense, operating margin, net income and earnings per diluted share exclude the following items, if any:

  • Share-based compensation, including the Warrant-related impact
  • Amortization of purchased intangibles and impairments
  • Restructuring, transaction and other acquisition or disposition-related expenses and gains on dispositions
  • Litigation expenses or dispute settlement charges or gains
  • Escheat or environmental reserves

To provide additional insight into the Company's first quarter outlook, this release also includes a presentation of forward-looking non-GAAP measures including net sales, gross margin, SG&A expense, R&D expense, interest and other expense, tax rate and earnings per diluted share. 

These non-GAAP financial measures are adjusted to exclude the items identified above because such items are either operating expenses which would not otherwise have been incurred by the Company in the normal course of the Company’s business operations or are not reflective of the Company’s core results over time. The Company has excluded the recognized cost of the Warrant from non-GAAP net sales and non-GAAP gross margin because the Warrant cost relates to a non-routine, non-cash equity award provided to Comcast as an incentive for Comcast to deploy a network based on technology developed by the Company. The cost recognized for the Warrant is not dependent on the achievement of sales targets, but instead (i) is recognized based upon Comcast reaching certain milestones related to the construction and deployment of the LoRaWAN™-based network, and (ii) the then current fair value of the Company’s common stock for the unvested tranches of the Warrant. Due to the pattern in which the cost is recognized, the Warrant creates variability that makes comparability between periods difficult. For the reasons noted, when internally evaluating the Company’s performance, management excludes the cost of the Warrant from revenues and gross profit. As a result, management believes that non-GAAP net sales and non-GAAP gross margin are useful additional supplemental information.  Other excluded items may include recurring as well as non-recurring items, and no inference should be made that all of these adjustments, charges, costs or expenses are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.  For example: certain restructuring and integration related expenses (which consist of employee termination costs, facility closure or lease termination costs, and contract termination costs) may be considered recurring given the Company’s ongoing efforts to be more cost effective and efficient; certain acquisition and disposition-related adjustments or expenses may be deemed recurring given the Company's regular evaluation of potential transactions and investments; and certain litigation expenses or dispute settlement charges or gains (which may include estimated losses for which we have established a reserve, as well as any actual settlements, judgments, or other resolutions against, or in favor of, the Company related to litigation, arbitration, disputes or similar matters, and insurance recoveries received by the Company related to such matters) may be viewed as recurring given that the Company may from time to time be involved in, and may resolve, litigation, arbitration, disputes, and similar matters.

Notwithstanding that certain adjustments, charges, costs or expenses may be considered recurring, in order to provide meaningful comparisons, the Company believes that it is appropriate to exclude such items because they are not reflective of the Company's core results and tend to vary based on timing, frequency and magnitude.

These non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of the Company's comparable financial performance between periods.  In addition, the Company’s management generally excludes the items noted above when managing and evaluating the performance of the business.  The financial statements provided with this release include reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to their most comparable GAAP results for the third and fourth quarters of fiscal year 2018 and the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017, as well as for the full fiscal year 2018 and the full fiscal year 2017, along with a reconciliation of forward-looking earnings per diluted share to its most comparable GAAP measure for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019.  The Company is unable to include a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measure of tax rate to the corresponding GAAP measure as it is not available without unreasonable efforts due to the interdependent relationship of the tax impact of the adjustments and the high variability and low visibility with respect to the charges which are expected to be excluded from this non-GAAP measure in the forecast period.  We expect the variability of the above charges to have a potentially significant impact on our GAAP financial results. These additional non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered substitutes for any measures derived in accordance with GAAP and may not be consistent with similar measures presented by other companies.
