Silicon Image, Inc. (NASDAQ:SIMG), a leading provider of HD connectivity solutions, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.
Revenue for fiscal year 2013 was $276.4 million, an increase of approximately 9.5% over fiscal year 2012 of $252.4 million. Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $61.4 million, compared with $59.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $79.3 million in the third quarter of 2013.
“We remain focused on enhancing shareholder value. 2013 was another year of growth for Silicon Image. We increased earnings per share by more than 30% and also generated more than $33 million in free cash flow,” said Camillo Martino, chief executive officer of Silicon Image, Inc. “We drove new product development, and saw the introduction of new versions of the MHL® and HDMI® standards, which will create additional opportunities for growth. Looking ahead, we expect continued growth in the MHL ecosystem and we are excited about the opportunities for our 60GHz wireless technology.”
GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $1.0 million, or $0.01 per share, compared with a GAAP net income of $9.0 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013 and a GAAP net loss of $0.3 million, or $0.00 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2012. GAAP net income for fiscal year 2013 was $11.5 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared with a net loss for fiscal year 2012 of $11.2 million, or $0.14 per share.
Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $4.1 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with a non-GAAP net income of $9.2 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013, and a non-GAAP net income of $6.2 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net income for fiscal year 2013 was $22.9 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared with a net income for fiscal year 2012 of $18.5 million, or $0.22 per share. Non-GAAP net income for these periods excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, business acquisition related expenses, other than temporary impairment of a privately-held company investment, proceeds from legal settlement, restructuring charges, impairment of intangible assets and write-down (recovery) of certain unsalable inventory.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
Silicon Image presents and discusses gross margin, operating expenses, net income (loss) and basic and diluted net income (loss) per share in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), and on a non-GAAP basis for informational purposes only. Silicon Image believes that non-GAAP reporting, giving effect to the adjustments shown in the attached reconciliation, provides meaningful information and therefore uses non-GAAP reporting to supplement its GAAP reporting and internally in evaluating operations, managing and monitoring performance, and determining bonus compensation. Further, Silicon Image uses non-GAAP information as certain non-cash charges such as stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, business acquisition related expenses, other than temporary impairment of a privately-held company investment, proceeds from legal settlement, restructuring charges, impairment of intangible assets and write-down (recovery) of certain unsalable inventory do not reflect the cash operating results of the business. Silicon Image has chosen to provide this supplemental information to investors, analysts and other interested parties to enable them to perform additional analyses of its operating results and to illustrate the results of operations giving effect to such non-GAAP adjustments. The non-GAAP financial information presented herein should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(1) Stock-Based Compensation Related Items: Stock-based compensation expense relates primarily to equity awards, such as stock options and restricted stock units. Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is dependent on market forces that are often beyond our control. As such, management excludes this item from our internal operating forecasts and models. Management believes that non-GAAP measures adjusted for stock-based compensation provide investors with a basis to measure our core performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by stock-based compensation as a result of the variety of equity awards used by companies and the varying methodologies and subjective assumptions used in determining such non-cash expense.
(2) Strategic Initiative and Acquisition Related Items: We exclude certain expense items resulting from our strategic initiative and acquisitions including the following, when applicable: (i) amortization of purchased intangible assets associated with our acquisitions; or relating to our unconsolidated affiliates and (ii) strategic initiative and acquisition-related charges. The amortization of purchased intangible assets associated with our acquisitions results in our recording expenses in our GAAP financial statements that were already expensed by the acquired company before the acquisition and for which we have not expended cash. Moreover, had we internally developed the products acquired, the amortization of intangible assets, and the expenses of uncompleted research and development would have been expensed in prior periods. Accordingly, we analyze the performance of our operations in each period without regard to such expenses. In addition, our strategic initiatives and acquisitions result in non-continuing operating expenses, which would not otherwise have been incurred by us in the normal course of our business operations. During January 2012, we established a research and development center in Hyderabad, India, whereby we hired 75 employees from our subcontractor and had to incur a onetime fee of approximately $3 million towards acquiring these employees. In October 2012, we executed a warrant purchase agreement with a privately-held company which give us an option to purchase the privately-held company’s preferred stock. We also agreed to pay specific amounts to the privately-held company if certain conditions were met. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, as a result of us executing an agreement with a specific customer, one of the earn-out conditions were met and we paid the privately-held company $1.0 million. We do not expect a fee of similar nature to be paid in our normal course of business and consider it infrequent and non-recurring. We believe that providing non-GAAP information for strategic initiative and acquisition-related expense items in addition to the corresponding GAAP information allows the users of our financial statements to better review and understand the historic and current results of our continuing operations, and also facilitates comparisons to less acquisitive peer companies.
(3) Other Items: We exclude certain other items that are the result of either unique or unplanned events including the following, when applicable: (i) other than temporary impairment of a privately held company investment, (ii) proceeds from legal settlement, (iii) restructuring and related costs, (iv) impairment of intangible assets and (v) write-down (recovery) of certain unsalable inventory. It is difficult to estimate the amount or timing of these items in advance. Other than temporary impairment of a privately held company investment was recorded due to the conclusion that the possibility is remote that we will exercise our warrants to purchase the entity’s preferred stock or that we will realize any other value from these investments. Proceeds from legal settlement relates to our acquisition of SiBEAM, Inc on May 16, 2011. We do not expect the payment of similar nature to be received in our normal course of business and consider it infrequent and non-recurring. Restructuring charges result from events which arise from unforeseen circumstances, which often occur outside of the ordinary course of continuing operations. We recognized impairment of an intangible asset because the sum of its estimated future undiscounted cash flows used to test for recoverability is less than its carrying value. In the fourth quarter of 2012, we wrote-down certain unsalable inventory, for which we were seeking recovery from the vendor who supplied the inventory. In the third quarter of 2013, we entered into a settlement with a vendor and received recovery related to previously written-down inventory in the third and fourth quarter of 2013. The inventory write-down and subsequent recovery are unusual and one-time events, which we do not expect to recur. Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financials, these unique transactions may limit the comparability of our on-going operations with prior and future periods. As such, we believe that these expenses do not accurately reflect the underlying performance of our continuing operations for the period in which they are incurred. We assess our operating performance both with these amounts included and excluded, and by providing this information, we believe the users of our financial statements are better able to understand the financial results of what we consider our continuing operations.
(4) Tax adjustments: For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 and the three months ended September 30, 2013, our non-GAAP tax rate was approximately 30% of non-GAAP pre-tax income. Non-GAAP tax rate is primarily based on net expected cash flow for income taxes.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on.
