Inphi Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

Reports 39% Year-Over-Year Growth and 9% Sequential Growth

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- Inphi Corporation (NYSE: IPHI), a leading provider of high-speed mixed signal semiconductor solutions for the communications, data center and computing markets, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $33.9 million, up 9% sequentially from $31.2 million reported for the first quarter of 2014. This was up 39% year-over-year compared with $24.3 million reported for the second quarter of 2013.

Gross margin under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for the second quarter of 2014 was 63.8% of revenue, compared with 63.5% of revenue for the second quarter of 2013.

GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $2.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted common share, compared with GAAP net loss of $1.5 million, or ($0.05) per diluted common share, for the second quarter of 2013.

Inphi reports gross margin, net income (loss), and earnings per share in accordance with GAAP and on a non-GAAP basis. A reconciliation of the GAAP to non-GAAP gross margin, net income, and earnings per share, as well as a description of the items excluded from the non-GAAP calculations, is included in the financial statements portion of this news release.

Gross margin on a non-GAAP basis for both the second quarter of 2014 and 2013 was 64.6% of revenue.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $2.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted common share. This compared with non-GAAP net income of $0.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted common share for the second quarter of 2013.

"We are pleased to report that our revenue grew to more than $33.9 million dollars during the second quarter of 2014 -- a 9% sequential increase, and an almost 40% year-over-year increase," said Ford Tamer, President and CEO of Inphi. "This is the sixth quarter in a row, where we have delivered consistent sequential revenue growth. At the same time, we have driven operating margins from 1% five quarters ago to 11% in Q2 2014, resulting in a nine-fold increase in earnings per share during the period. Equally importantly, we achieved these results while continuing to invest in research and development, effectively innovating award winning solutions for our growing list of customers around the world."

First Half 2014 Results
For the six months ended June 30, 2014, revenue was $65.1 million, compared with $46.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. GAAP net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $1.6 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, on approximately 32.9 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding. This compared with GAAP net loss of $9.1 million, or ($0.31) per diluted share, on approximately 29.1 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Non-GAAP net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $5.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted weighted average common share outstanding, on approximately 32.9 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding. This compared with non-GAAP net income of $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, or $0.01 per diluted weighted average common share outstanding.

                              INPHI CORPORATION
                 RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP MEASURES
        (in thousands of dollars, except share and per share amounts)

To supplement the audited financial data presented on a GAAP basis, the Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude stock-based compensation, abandoned office space costs and deferred tax asset valuation allowance. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with GAAP. These results should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. The Company believes that its non-GAAP financial information provides useful information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations because it excludes charges or benefits that management considers to be outside of the Company's core operating results. The Company believes that the non-GAAP measures of gross margin, net income and earnings per share in combination with the Company's financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP, provide investors with additional perspective and a more meaningful understanding of the Company's ongoing operating performance. In addition, the Company's management uses these non-GAAP measures to review and assess the financial performance of the Company, to determine executive officer incentive compensation and to plan and forecast performance in future periods. The Company's non-GAAP measurements are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, and are not an alternative to GAAP financial information, and may be calculated differently than non-GAAP financial information disclosed by other companies.

(a)  Reflects the stock-based compensation expense recorded relating to
     stock-based awards. The Company excludes this item when it evaluates
     the continuing operational performance of the Company as management
     believes this GAAP measure is not indicative of its core operating
     performance.
(b)  Reflects the cost of abandoned office space. The Company excludes this
     item when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the
     Company as management believes this GAAP measure is not indicative of
     its core operating performance.
(c)  Reflects the change in valuation allowance and delta in interim period
     tax allocation from GAAP to non-GAAP related to non-GAAP adjustments.
     Starting 2014, the Company, prospectively changed its method of
     calculating income taxes on a non-GAAP basis related to considering
     $213,000 -- the quarterly amortization of a deferred tax charge on an
     ARB 51-related intercompany transfer of assets. The deferred tax charge
     relates to intercompany transfer of intellectual property in 2010 for
     which taxes were already paid. The Company decided to exclude the
     amortization from the calculation prospectively as it is strictly non-
     cash accounting amortization that will never convert into cash tax
     expense. The change is only made prospectively, therefore, a similar
     amount remains included in the comparable Q2 2013 non-GAAP tax expense.
     The Company excludes this item when it evaluates the continuing
     operational performance of the Company as management believes this GAAP
     measure is not indicative of its core operating performance.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...

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.
