Power Integrations Reports First-Quarter Financial Results

Published

Quarterly revenues were $91.7 million; GAAP earnings were $0.07 per diluted share; non-GAAP earnings were $0.18 per diluted share

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Power Integrations (NASDAQ: POWI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2024. Net revenues for the first quarter were $91.7 million, up two percent from the prior quarter and down 14 percent from the first quarter of 2023. GAAP net income for the first quarter was $4.0 million or $0.07 per diluted share compared to $0.25 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.12 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2023. Cash flow from operations for the first quarter was $15.9 million.

In addition to its GAAP results, the company provided non-GAAP measures that exclude stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and the related tax effects. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2024 was $10.5 million or $0.18 per diluted share compared to $0.22 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.25 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2023. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial results is included with the tables accompanying this press release.

Commented Balu Balakrishnan, chairman and CEO of Power Integrations: “Orders have improved in recent months as supply-chain inventories continue to normalize. We expect sequentially higher revenues in the second quarter, accompanied by a further increase in gross margin driven by the dollar/yen exchange rate and higher manufacturing utilization.”

Mr. Balakrishnan continued: “We further advanced the state of the art in power-conversion technology in the first quarter with the introduction of InnoMux™-2. The new ICs provide multiple, independently regulated DC outputs, eliminating the need for separate DC-DC stages and greatly increasing efficiency. The efficiency of InnoMux-2 is further enhanced by our PowiGaN™ transistors, bringing total system efficiency to more than 90 percent. Meanwhile, our acquisition of the assets of Odyssey Semiconductor augments our efforts to develop high-current GaN and bring the benefits of GaN technology to much higher-power applications.”

Additional Highlights

  • Power Integrations has agreed to acquire the assets of Odyssey Semiconductor Technologies, augmenting the company’s development of high-power gallium-nitride (GaN) switching technology. The purchase is expected to close in July 2024.
  • During the first quarter Power Integrations repurchased 207 thousand shares of its common stock for $14.6 million; the company had $11.3 million remaining on its repurchase authorization as of March 31, 2024.
  • Power Integrations paid a dividend of $0.20 per share on March 28, 2024; a dividend of $0.20 per share will be paid on June 28, 2024, to stockholders of record as of May 31, 2024.

Financial Outlook

The company issued the following forecast for the second quarter of 2024:

  • Revenues are expected to be $105 million plus or minus $5 million.
  • GAAP gross margin is expected to be between 52.5 percent and 53.0 percent; non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be between 53.5 percent and 54.0 percent. The difference between GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins is approximately equally attributable to stock-based compensation and amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets.
  • GAAP operating expenses are expected to be between $54.5 million and $55 million; non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be between $44.5 million and $45 million. Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to exclude approximately $10 million of stock-based compensation.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the company's consolidated financial statements, which are presented according to GAAP, the company provides certain non-GAAP financial information that excludes stock-based compensation expenses recorded under ASC 718-10, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and the tax effects of these items. The company uses these measures in its financial and operational decision-making and, with respect to one measure, in setting performance targets for compensation purposes. The company believes that these non-GAAP measures offer important analytical tools to help investors understand its operating results, and to facilitate comparability with the results of companies that provide similar measures. Non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools and are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial information. For example, stock-based compensation is an important component of the company’s compensation mix and will continue to result in significant expenses in the company’s GAAP results for the foreseeable future but is not reflected in the non-GAAP measures. Also, other companies, including companies in Power Integrations’ industry, may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures are attached to this press release.

Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

The above statements regarding the company’s forecast for its second-quarter financial performance are forward-looking statements reflecting management's current expectations and beliefs. These statements are based on current information that is, by its nature, subject to rapid and even abrupt change. Due to risks and uncertainties associated with the company's business, actual results could differ materially from those projected or implied by these statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the company’s ability to supply products and its ability to conduct other aspects of its business such as competing for new design wins; changes in global economic and geopolitical conditions, including such factors as inflation, armed conflicts and trade negotiations, which may impact the level of demand for the company’s products; potential changes and shifts in customer demand away from end products that utilize the company's integrated circuits to end products that do not incorporate the company's products; the effects of competition, which may cause the company’s revenues to decrease or cause the company to decrease its selling prices for its products; unforeseen costs and expenses; and unfavorable fluctuations in component costs or operating expenses resulting from changes in commodity prices and/or exchange rates. In addition, new product introductions and design wins are subject to the risks and uncertainties that typically accompany development and delivery of complex technologies to the marketplace, including product development delays and defects and market acceptance of the new products. These and other risk factors that may cause actual results to differ are more fully explained under the caption “Risk Factors” in the company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 12, 2024. The company is under no obligation (and expressly disclaims any obligation) to update or alter its forward-looking statements, whether because of new information, future events or otherwise, except as otherwise required by law.
