FOURTH QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Revenues increased 6.7% sequentially to $32.7 million
  • Achieved 41.4% gross margin (43.0% non-GAAP) and year-over-year increase of 381 bps

Pericom Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEM), a worldwide supplier of high performance connectivity and timing solutions, today announced results for its fiscal 2014 fourth quarter and year ended June 28, 2014.

Net revenues for the fourth quarter were $32.7 million, an increase of 6.7% from the $30.7 million reported in the third quarter of fiscal 2014, and up 3.3% from the $31.7 million reported in the comparable period last year. The revenue increase from the prior quarter reflects strength from primarily the embedded and server end-market segments. Net revenues for the fiscal year 2014 were $128.1 million, a decrease of 0.9% from the $129.3 million reported last year.

GAAP gross margin was 41.4% in the fourth quarter, an increase from 40.8% last quarter and from 37.6% for the comparable period last year. The GAAP gross margin was 39.9% for the full fiscal year of 2014, an increase of 286 basis points from the 37.0% reported for fiscal year 2013.

GAAP net income for the fourth quarter was $0.9 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share in the third quarter, and net loss of $16.8 million, or $0.74 per diluted share in the comparable period last year. For the full fiscal year 2014, GAAP net income was $4.1 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared with GAAP net loss of $21.6 million, or $0.93 per diluted share in fiscal year 2013.

To facilitate the complete understanding of comparable financial performance between periods, Pericom also presents performance results net of certain non-cash and one-time items as non-GAAP measures.

On a non-GAAP basis, gross margin was 43.0% in the fourth quarter, an increase from 42.5% last quarter and 39.3% in the comparable period last year. On a non-GAAP basis, the fiscal year 2014 gross margin was 41.6%, and increased by 286 basis points from fiscal year 2013's gross margin of 38.7%.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the fourth quarter was $2.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $1.8 million or $0.08 per diluted share in the third quarter, and non-GAAP net income of $1.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share in the comparable period last year. For the full fiscal year 2014, non-GAAP net income was $8.5 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, compared with $6.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted share in fiscal year 2013.

"We are pleased to deliver good sequential growth in revenue along with margin expansion, and this together with careful control of operating expenses resulted in a strong sequential increase in earnings," said Alex Hui, President and CEO of Pericom. "We believe these results validate our strategy of transforming our business with growth from market segments offering higher gross margin and growth potential. We will continue to focus on growing our customer base in networking, cloud computing and embedded applications with our serial connectivity and timing solutions."

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this announcement of operating results contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the income statement effects of share-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, fair value adjustments on acquired fixed assets, write-off of property and equipment, restructuring charge, lease restructuring and moving costs, goodwill impairment, write-off of government subsidy, release of tax reserves, tax provision on intercompany transactions and the effects of excluding share-based compensation upon the number of diluted shares used in calculating non-GAAP earnings per share.

We have excluded share-based compensation expense in calculating these non-GAAP financial measures. These expenses are non-cash in nature and rely on valuations of the future market price of our common stock that is difficult to predict and is affected by market factors that are largely not within the control of management. We have excluded amortization of intangible assets, amortization of fair value adjustments on acquired fixed assets, write-off of property and equipment, restructuring charge, lease restructuring and moving costs, goodwill impairment, write-off of government subsidy, release of tax reserves, tax provision on intercompany transactions and the corresponding tax effects because we do not consider them to be related to our core operating performance. We also use non-GAAP data in calculating certain metrics such as non-GAAP cost of goods sold in computing inventory days of supply.

We use the non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these items to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and evaluate the Company's current operating performance. We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these items is useful to investors because we do not consider these charges either part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company that are within the control of management or that are used to evaluate the Company's operating performance.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

The Company's actual results could differ materially from what is set forth in such forward-looking statements due to a variety of risk factors, including softness in demand for our products, price erosion for certain of our products, unexpected difficulties in developing new products, customer decisions to reduce inventory, economic or financial difficulties experienced by our customers, or technological and market changes.

GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding is adjusted to exclude the
benefits of unamortized stock compensation costs that are treated as
proceeds assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury
stock method.

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage. Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
