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.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
"We focus on composable infrastructure. Composable infrastructure has been named by companies like Gartner as the evolution of the IT infrastructure where everything is now driven by software," explained Bruno Andrade, CEO and Founder of HTBase, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
