Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ:SILC) (TASE:SILC), an industry-leading provider of high-performance server/appliances networking solutions, today reported its financial results for the second quarter and first half ended June 30, 2014.

Financial Results

Q2 2014: Revenues for the second quarter increased by 14% to $17.9 million from $15.7 million in the second quarter of 2013.

On a GAAP basis, operating income for the quarter increased by 12% to $3.9 million compared with $3.5 million in the second quarter of 2013. Net income for the quarter totalled $3.3 million, or $0.45 per diluted share ($0.46 per basic share), compared with $3.3 million, or $0.45 per diluted share ($0.46 per basic share), in the second quarter of 2013.

On a non-GAAP basis (as described and reconciled below), operating income for the quarter increased by 17% to $4.3 million compared with $3.6 million in the second quarter of 2013. Net income increased by 7% to $3.7 million, or $0.50 per diluted share ($0.51 per basic share), compared with $3.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted share ($0.49 per basic share), in the second quarter of 2013.

On a GAAP basis, operating income for the period increased by 25% to $8.5 million compared with $6.8 million in the first six months of 2013. Net income increased by 15% to $7.4 million, or $1.00 per diluted share ($1.03 per basic share), compared with $6.4 million, or $0.89 per diluted share ($0.90 per basic share), in the first half of 2013.

Comments of Management

Commenting on the results, Shaike Orbach, President and CEO, said, “We have reported solid year-over-year growth for both the quarter and the first half of 2014, however softer demand in Q2 resulted in a 6% sequential revenue decline compared with the first quarter of 2014. While these challenges may remain with us for the short term, we continue to believe in the long-term power of our growth engines: especially our more than 100 existing customers, many of whom are industry leaders, our proven portfolio of mission-critical products, and our impressive roadmap of innovative new product lines that give us entry into high-potential new opportunities. As such, we continue implementing our proven strategy for building our business and pursuing our goals.”
