Semtech Announces First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2010 Results


CAMARILLO, Calif., May 20, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- SEMTECH CORPORATION (NASDAQ: SMTC), a leading producer of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today reported un-audited financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2010 that ended April 26, 2009.

Net revenues for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 were $60.1 million, down 19 percent from the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 and down 4 percent compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010, computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), was $4.9 million or 8 cents per diluted share. GAAP net income was $8.1 million or 13 cents per diluted share in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 and $6.3 million or 10 cents per diluted share in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009.

GAAP gross profit margin for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 was 54.5 percent compared to 54.8 percent in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 and 53.2 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009.

Semtech had $270.5 million of cash, cash equivalents and investments as of April 26, 2009, which was up from $258.8 million at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009.

Mohan Maheswaran, Semtech's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Despite a very difficult environment, Semtech delivered solid operating results in Q1. We expanded gross margins, lowered inventory and grew our cash balance."

The results announced today are preliminary, as they are subject to customary quarterly review procedures by the Company's independent registered public accounting firm. As such, these results are subject to revision until the Company files its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010.

Second Quarter Outlook

Semtech estimates net sales for the second quarter, which ends July 26, 2009, will increase between 4 percent to 8 percent on a sequential basis. GAAP earnings for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 are expected to be 9 to 11 cents per diluted share.
