Semtech Announces Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2013 Results


CAMARILLO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today reported unaudited financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2013, which ended October 28, 2012.

Net revenue for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $160.9 million, up 29.8 percent from the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 and up 6.8 percent from the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. Third quarter revenue included $8.1 million of IP licensing revenue.

Gross profit margin, computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was 60.2 percent compared to 59.2 percent in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 and 49.5 percent in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $16.6 million, or approximately 25 cents per diluted share. This compares to GAAP net income of $27.0 million or 40 cents per diluted share in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 and GAAP net income of $10.0 million or 15 cents per diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

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:

Non-GAAP gross profit margin for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was 63.1 percent. Non-GAAP gross profit margin for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 was 59.4 percent and 61.2 percent in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $36.1 million or 53 cents per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income was $35.0 million or 52 cents per diluted share in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 and was $27.5 million or 41 cents per diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

As of October 28, 2012 Semtech had $218.0 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities and $336.2 million in debt, compared to $173.4 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities and $341.6 million in debt at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Mohan Maheswaran, Semtech's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Despite a challenging macroeconomic environment, Semtech posted record revenue, expanded margins and grew profits in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. The integration of Gennum Corporation continues to progress quite well, and Q3 was a record quarter for Gennum for both bookings and revenue. Our relentless focus on identifying growth opportunities and executing well continues to yield positive results for the company."

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 third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2013 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 fourth quarter outlook, this release includes a presentation of forward-looking non-GAAP gross profit and earnings per diluted share. A further discussion of these non-GAAP financial measures can be found above. The non-GAAP gross profit, net income and earnings per diluted share measures exclude stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and the other items detailed above. Free cash flow is defined as total cash provided (used in) by operating activities less additions to property and equipment. This non-GAAP financial measure assists investors in making a ready comparison of the company's expected free cash flow against the company's results for the respective prior periods and against management's previously provided expectations. 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 the items noted above when managing and evaluating the performance of the business. The financial statements provided with this release include reconciliations of GAAP results for the third quarter of fiscal years 2013 and 2012 and the second quarter of fiscal year 2013; and a reconciliation of forward-looking earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013. 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.
