Semtech Announces First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2012 Results


CAMARILLO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Semtech Corp. (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today reported unaudited financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2012, which ended May 1, 2011.

Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 was $122.4 million, up 20.1 percent from the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 and up 5.2 percent from the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), was $22.6 million or 34 cents per diluted share. This compares to GAAP net income of $10.8 million or 17 cents per diluted share in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 and GAAP net income of $26.0 million or 39 cents per diluted share in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011.

GAAP gross profit margin for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 was 60.4 percent compared to 56.0 percent in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 and 60.2 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011.

To facilitate the complete understanding of comparable financial performance between periods, Semtech also presents performance results net of certain non-cash and one-time items. Semtech's non-GAAP results exclude the following items:

Excluding the items listed above, non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 was $30.0 million or 45 cents per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income was $22.0 million or 35 cents per diluted share in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 and was $31.0 million or 47 cents per diluted share in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Non-GAAP gross profit margin for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 was 60.6 percent. Non-GAAP gross profit margin for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 was 58.8 percent and 60.5 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Semtech had $276.3 million of cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of May 1, 2011, up from $258.3 million at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Mohan Maheswaran, Semtech's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "During the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, Semtech delivered solid revenue growth and gross margin that exceeded the high end of our target range. Our focus on developing highly differentiated analog platforms that enable bandwidth expansion, miniaturization of electronics and ‘greener' technologies continues to drive top-line growth and profitability for our shareholders."

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 will have filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012.

Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2012 Outlook

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 gross profit, net income and earnings per diluted share. To provide additional insight into the Company's second quarter outlook, this release includes a presentation of forward-looking non-GAAP earnings per diluted share. All of these non-GAAP measures exclude stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and the other items detailed above. These non-GAAP 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 such items in managing and evaluating the performance of the business. A further discussion of these non-GAAP financial measures can be found above. Reconciliations of GAAP results for the first quarter of fiscal years 2012 and 2011 and the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011, as well as a reconciliation of forward-looking earnings per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal year 2012, appear with the financial statements included with this release. These additional financial measures should not be considered substitutes for any measures derived in accordance with GAAP and may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.
