Synaptics Reports Results for Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2014

-- Record fiscal 2014 revenue of $948 million up 43%

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Synaptics (NASDAQ: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and year ended June 30, 2014. 

"Synaptics posted a stellar fourth quarter and a phenomenal fiscal year.  We greatly outpaced our growth objectives by extending our leadership in touch and generating significant contributions from our fingerprint ID business," stated Rick Bergman, President and CEO.  "We are clearly executing on our key growth levers with the adoption of our fingerprint authentication platform, expanding penetration within large touchscreens, growing traction for our display integrated solutions and continued expansion in China. Our acquisition of Renesas SP Drivers is progressing as anticipated, and we are excited to broaden our expertise in mobile display, which we believe will enhance our ability to continue to deliver and sustain strong, profitable growth."

Net revenue for fiscal 2014 reached a record $947.5 million, an increase of 43% over fiscal 2013.  Net income for fiscal 2014 was $46.7 million, or $1.26 per diluted share, and includes an expense for change to contingent consideration liability of $69.9 million primarily related to the acquisition of the company's fingerprint ID business, which is performing significantly above expectations.

Non-GAAP net income for fiscal 2014 increased 48% from the prior year to a record $157.6 million, or $4.25 per diluted share. (See attached table for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results.)

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 grew 37% over the comparable quarter last year to a record $314.9 million. Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was $34.5 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, and includes an expense for change to contingent consideration liability of $13.1 million

Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 grew 16% over the prior year period to a record $56.8 million, or $1.46 per diluted share.  (See attached table for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.) 

Fourth Quarter 2014 Business Metrics

  • Revenue mix from mobile and PC products was approximately 77% and 23%, respectively. Fingerprint ID products have been classified according to type of device.
  • Revenue from mobile products of $242.9 million was up 40% year-over-year. Mobile products revenue includes all touchscreen, video display, and applicable fingerprint ID products.
  • Revenue from PC products totaled $72.0 million, an increase of 26% year-over-year, and includes applicable fingerprint ID products.
  • Cash at June 30, 2014 was $447.2 million.

Kathy Bayless, CFO, added, "Our outperformance in the June quarter reflected a steep initial ramp of new designs. Considering our backlog of $132 million entering the typically back-end loaded September quarter, customer forecasts and product sell-in and sell-through timing patterns, and the resulting expected product mix, we anticipate a record September quarter with revenue in the range of $275 to $295 million, an increase of 24% to 33% over the prior year period.  We expect the revenue mix from mobile and PC to be similar to the preceding quarter."

Mr. Bergman added, "As we look ahead to fiscal 2015, we see signs of stability in the PC market, coupled with strong but moderating growth rates for smartphones. With continued strength in our core focus areas and fingerprint ID solutions now successfully incorporated into our platform, we feel confident that we can achieve another year of very strong annual revenue growth in the mid-20% range, excluding revenue from our impending acquisition of Renesas SP Drivers."

During fiscal 2014, Synaptics repurchased approximately 5% of its outstanding shares, similar to levels repurchased during each of the past several years.  The company also announced that in July, its board of directors increased and extended the authorization for stock repurchases by $110 million, for a total current authorization of $200 million available through July 2016.

(NASDAQ: SYNA) www.synaptics.com.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In evaluating its business, Synaptics considers and uses net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items as a supplemental measure of operating performance.  Net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items is not a measurement of the company's financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income. The company presents net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items because it considers it an important supplemental measure of its performance. The company believes this measure facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by eliminating potential differences in net income caused by the existence and timing of share-based compensation charges, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items. Net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration liability, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the company's GAAP net income.  The principal limitations of this measure are that it does not reflect the company's actual expenses and may thus have the effect of inflating its net income and net income per share.
