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.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
SYS-CON Events announced today that G2G3 will exhibit at SYS-CON's @DevOpsSummit Silicon Valley, which will take place on November 3–5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Any Ops team trying to support a company in today’s cloud-connected world knows that a new way of thinking is required – one just as dramatic than the shift from Ops to DevOps. The diversity of modern operations requires teams to focus their impact on breadth vs. depth. In his session at DevOps Summit, Adam Serediuk, Director of Operations at xMatters, Inc., will discuss the strategic requirements of evolving from Ops to DevOps, and why modern Operations has begun leveraging the “NoOps” approa...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Organizations from small to large are increasingly adopting cloud solutions to deliver essential business services at a much lower cost. According to cyber security experts, the frequency and severity of cyber-attacks are on the rise, causing alarm to businesses and customers across a variety of industries. To defend against exploits like these, a company must adopt a comprehensive security defense strategy that is designed for their business. In 2015, organizations such as United Airlines, Sony...
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Puppet Labs has announced the next major update to its flagship product: Puppet Enterprise 2015.2. This release includes new features providing DevOps teams with clarity, simplicity and additional management capabilities, including an all-new user interface, an interactive graph for visualizing infrastructure code, a new unified agent and broader infrastructure support.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Trel...
Amazon and Google have built software-defined data centers (SDDCs) that deliver massively scalable services with great efficiency. Yet, building SDDCs has proven to be a near impossibility for ‘normal’ companies without hyper-scale resources. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, David Cauthron, founder and chief executive officer of Nimboxx, will discuss the evolution of virtualization (hardware, application, memory, storage) and how commodity / open source hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) so...

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
