Vicor Corporation Reports Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2014

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014. These results will be discussed later today at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, during management's quarterly investor conference call. The details for the call are presented below.

Regarding the second quarter's performance, Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "As expected, Vicor experienced mixed results for the period, as improvement across the Brick Business Unit was offset by the anticipated decline in VI Chip shipments associated with a major product transition underway by VI Chip's largest datacenter customer. Higher unit volumes and a positive shift in mix contributed to sequential strength for the BBU. Similarly, Picor saw growth driven by its new line of point of load regulators. However, the consequences of the product transition for VI Chip, along with ongoing litigation expenses, caused us to record a loss for the quarter, albeit smaller than the prior quarter's loss. We are encouraged by the recovery of bookings, which increased 14.6% sequentially, and by customer response to new VI Chip and Picor products targeting opportunities for which our solutions offer highly differentiated performance."

Revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 increased to $53,361,000, compared to $46,865,000 for the corresponding period a year ago, and increased from $53,233,000 for the first quarter of 2014. 

Gross margin increased to $22,662,000 for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $18,461,000 for the corresponding period a year ago, but decreased from $22,792,000 for the first quarter of 2014. Gross margin, as a percentage of revenue increased to 42.5% for the second quarter of 2014 compared to 39.4% for the second quarter of 2013, but decreased on a sequential basis from 42.8% for the first quarter of 2014. 

Net loss for the second quarter was ($4,835,000), or ($0.13) per share, compared to a net loss of ($4,616,000), or ($0.12) per share, for the corresponding period a year ago and a net loss of ($5,378,000), or ($0.14) per share, for the first quarter of 2014. 

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2014, increased by 20.0% to $106,594,000 from $88,811,000 for the corresponding period a year ago. Net loss for the six month period was ($10,213,000), or ($0.26) per share, compared to a net loss of ($9,606,000), or ($0.24) per diluted share, for the corresponding period a year ago. 

For the first six months ended 2014, no tax benefit can be recognized for the majority of the Company's losses due to a full valuation allowance against all domestic deferred tax assets. For the first six months of 2013, a net income tax benefit was recorded due to an increase in net federal deferred tax assets not covered by a valuation allowance at that time, a potential net operating loss carryback for federal income tax purposes and the recognition of the full federal research and development tax credit for 2012 during the first quarter. On January 2, 2013, Congress passed the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, extending the research and development tax credit for both 2012 and 2013. 

Total backlog at the end of the second quarter was $45,648,000, compared to $41,562,000 at the end of the first quarter, and $44,659,000 at the end of 2013.

Depreciation and amortization for the second quarter of 2014 was approximately $2,411,000, and capital additions totaled $1,927,000. For the first six months of 2014, depreciation and amortization was $4,854,000 and capital additions totaled $3,481,000, compared to $5,028,000 and $2,543,000, respectively, for the first six months of 2013. Cash and cash equivalents increased by $498,000 to approximately $50,805,000 at the end of the second quarter of 2014 from $50,307,000 at the end of the first quarter of 2014.
