Exar Corporation Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 Results

Accelerating New Product Introductions and Design Wins Expected to Drive Future Growth

FREMONT, Calif., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Exar Corporation (NYSE: EXAR), a leading supplier of high performance analog mixed-signal components and data management solutions, today announced financial results for the Company's third quarter of fiscal year 2014, ended December 29, 2013.  Revenue of $30.7 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 decreased from $34.0 million in the previous quarter and $31.0 million in the same quarter a year ago.  On a non-GAAP basis, gross margin was 49% and non-GAAP net income was $2.0 million, or $0.04 per fully diluted share. On a GAAP basis, gross margin was 42% and net loss was $1.6 million, or $0.03 loss per share.

Louis DiNardo, the Company's President and CEO, commented,  "As anticipated, our financial results for the quarter were impacted by supply chain inventory exceeding demand in the networking market.  We expect the inventory to be consumed over the next several months and a return to growth in this vibrant market based on our strong position at major OEMs.  Design win momentum for our compression and security products is robust and new customers are expected to begin production this quarter.  As a result, we are building an outstanding diverse customer base in both the structured and unstructured data compression markets, as well as in network security.

"Our core business in the industrial market remains strong and has been enhanced by the addition of new high performance analog products.  Additionally, the products and revenue associated with our recent acquisition of Stretch, Inc. will provide meaningful new customer engagements and revenue in the large and growing surveillance market in the near-term," concluded Mr. DiNardo.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014 the Company expects total revenue to be in the range of $30.0 to $32.0 million and expects non-GAAP gross margin to be in the range of 48% to 50%.

Except for historical information contained herein, this press release and matters discussed on the conference call contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are based on management's current expectations and beliefs and are subject to a number of factors and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. In particular, the statements regarding the demand for our products and the anticipated trends in our sales and profits are forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements are dependent on certain risks and uncertainties. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed herein. The Company urges investors to review in detail the risks and uncertainties and other factors described in its Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, filings, including, but not limited to, under the captions "Risk Factors", "Forward-Looking Statements" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" sections of our public reports filed with the SEC, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013 and the Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended June 30, 2013 and September 29, 2013, which are on file with the SEC and are available on our Investor webpage and on the SEC website at www.sec.gov.  The Company assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements or information, which speak as of their respective dates.

The Company's non-GAAP measures exclude charges related to stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets and inventory step-up, restructuring charges and exit costs, provisions for dispute resolutions, Merger and Acquisition and related integration costs, certain income tax benefits and credits, certain warranty charges, net change in the fair value of contingent consideration, and related income tax effects on certain excluded items. The Company excludes these items primarily because they are significant special expense and gain estimates, which management separates for consideration when evaluating and managing business operations. The Company's management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share to evaluate its current operating results and financial results and to compare them against historical financial results.  Additionally, we disclose below the non-GAAP measure of free cash flow, which is derived from our net cash provided (used) by operations, less purchases of fixed assets and IP, plus proceeds from the sale of IP.  Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in evaluating the Company and provides further clarity on its profitability. 

In addition, the Company believes that providing investors with these non-GAAP measurements enhances their ability to compare the Company's business against that of its many competitors who employ and disclose similar non-GAAP measures.  This financial measure may be different from non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by the Company's competitors to the extent their non-GAAP measures include or exclude other items.  The presentation of this additional information should not be considered a substitute for net income or net income per diluted share or other measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
