Inphi Corporation Delivers Record Revenue and Earnings in Q1 2020

Strong Year-Over-Year Growth Driven by Cloud

SANTA CLARA, May 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inphi Corporation /zigman2/quotes/208445412/composite IPHI +0.09% , a leader in high-speed data movement interconnects, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

GAAP Results

Revenue in the first quarter of 2020 was a record $139.4 million on a U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, up 69.6% year-over-year, compared with $82.2 million in the first quarter of 2019. The increase was due to higher demand for Cloud and Telecommunications products as well as the inclusion of eSilicon revenues as a result of the acquisition that closed on January 10, 2020.

Gross margin under GAAP in the first quarter of 2020 was 52.9%, compared with 57.9% in the first quarter of 2019. The decrease was mainly due to amortization of intangibles, step up value of inventories related to the eSilicon acquisition and product mix.

GAAP operating loss in the first quarter of 2020 was $16.3 million or (11.7%) of revenue, compared to GAAP operating loss in the first quarter of 2019 of $15.5 million or (18.8%) of revenue. The increase in operating loss was mainly due to higher operating expenses as a result of eSilicon acquisition, partially offset by higher gross profit.

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2020 was $20.3 million or ($0.44) per diluted common share, compared with $22.7 million or ($0.51) per diluted common share in the first quarter of 2019.

Inphi reports gross profit, operating expenses, 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 profit, operating expenses, operating income, net income, 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 press release.

Non-GAAP Results

Gross margin on a non-GAAP basis in the first quarter of 2020 was 64.2%, compared with 70.7% in the first quarter of 2019. The decrease was due to product mix, mainly from the sale of eSilicon products that have a lower margin.

Non-GAAP operating income in the first quarter of 2020 was $34.2 million, compared with non-GAAP operating income of $15.6 million in the first quarter of 2019. The increase is primarily due to higher gross profit and higher operating leverage.

Non-GAAP net income in the first quarter of 2020 was $31.5 million, or $0.62 per diluted common share. This compares with non-GAAP net income of $15.4 million, or $0.33 per diluted common share in the first quarter of 2019.

The Company spent approximately $215 million to acquire eSilicon on January 10. On April 24 [th] , the Company also closed the sale of $506 million in 0.75% convertible senior notes due 2025. This effectively allows for the refinancing of the existing Convertible Notes totaling $517.5 million on the balance sheet which will become due in the next 7-15 months. Toward that end, approximately $99.5 million of the 2015 Convertible Notes were exchanged as of April 24 for notes in the new Convertible Note financing. The Company currently plans to use cash to retire the remaining principal of $130.5 million in the 2015 Convertible Notes due in December 2020 and $287.5 million of the 2016 Convertible Notes due in September 2021 when the notes become due.

"As the global health crisis continues to be a challenge, the demand for bandwidth remains solid, as detailed in our April 22 blog on Inphi's website," said Ford Tamer, President and CEO of Inphi Corporation. "Prior to the crisis, we were already delivering on new product cycles for our cloud and telecom customers. These included upgrades of data center, 5G, metro and long-haul networks to PAM and Coherent technologies, designed to increase available bandwidth. Now, we believe the significant paradigm shifts brought on by 'work from home', electronic commerce, distance learning, streaming and other remote usage activities may result in further acceleration of bandwidth upgrades. While we remain cautiously optimistic for continued growth, we will also work to verify the sustainability of this new demand."

Business Outlook

The following statements are based on the Company's current expectations for the second quarter of 2020. Due to strong product cycles, among other factors in both Telecom and Cloud, we anticipate sequential organic revenue growth in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2020. These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially. A reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP outlook is included at the end of this press release.

  • Revenue in Q2 2020 is expected to be in the range of $147.8 million to $152.0 million.

  • GAAP gross margin is expected to be approximately 51.6% to 53.9%.

  • Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be approximately 63.5% to 65.5%.

  • Stock-based compensation expense is expected to be in the range of $26 million to $28 million.

  • GAAP net loss is expected to be in range between $15.0 million to $21. 5 million, or ($0.31) to ($0.45) per basic share, based on 47.8 million estimated weighted average basic shares outstanding.

  • Non-GAAP net income, excluding stock-based compensation expense, acquisition expenses, amortization of intangibles and inventory fair value step up related to acquisitions and noncash interest on convertible debt, is expected to be in the range of $33.15 million to $36.35 million, or $0.62 to $0.68 per weighted average diluted share, based on 53.1 million estimated non-GAAP weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

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

To supplement the financial data presented on a GAAP basis, the Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude stock-based compensation, legal, transition costs and other expenses, purchase price fair value adjustments related to acquisitions, non-cash interest expense related to convertible debt, unrealized gain or loss on equity investments, lease expense on building not occupied 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, income from operations, 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.
