International Rectifier Reports Second Quarter Results

International Rectifier Reports Second Quarter Results

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- International Rectifier Corporation (NYS: IRF) today announced financial results for the second quarter (ended December 23, 2012) of its fiscal year 2013. Revenue was $223.8 million, an 11.4% decrease from $252.5 million in the prior quarter and a 2.7% decrease from $230.1 million in the prior year quarter. GAAP net loss for the second quarter was $32.7 million, or $0.47 per fully diluted share compared with GAAP net loss of $28.8 million, or $0.42 per fully diluted share, in the prior quarter and GAAP net loss of $6.3 million, or $0.09 per fully diluted share in the prior year quarter.

"We expected a challenging December quarter given industry conditions," stated President and Chief Executive Officer Oleg Khaykin. "Although revenue declined, we significantly reduced our inventory, continued to reduce our costs and increased our cash balance by $16 million."


GAAP gross margin for the second quarter was 21.9% compared with 27.9% in the prior quarter and 35.4% in the prior year quarter. GAAP operating loss was $34.7 million compared with an operating loss of $20.8 million in the prior quarter and an operating loss of $3.3 million in the prior year quarter.

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable investments increased $16 million and totaled $383.3 million at the end of the second quarter, including restricted cash of $1.6 million.

Cash provided by operating activities for the quarter was $41.9 million and free cash flow was $15.9 million.

Non-GAAP Results

The non-GAAP results the Company provides exclude the effects of accelerated depreciation, asset impairment and inventory write-offs associated with our El Segundo fab closure, restructuring costs, severance costs, impairment of goodwill, amortization of intangibles, the associated net tax effects of these items, and discrete tax provisions and benefits. The Company excludes any tax provisions (benefits) that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability.

A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the Company's reported net income (loss), gross margin and operating income (loss) results in accordance with U.S. GAAP are set forth in the attached schedules below and on our web-site at www.investor.irf.com.

On this basis, non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter was $30.3 million, or $0.44 per fully diluted share compared with non-GAAP net loss of $13.9 million, or $0.20 per fully diluted share in the prior quarter and non-GAAP net loss of $2.6 million, or $0.04 per fully diluted share in the prior year quarter.

Non-GAAP gross margin for the second quarter was 22.2% compared with non-GAAP gross margin of 28.3% in the prior quarter and non-GAAP gross margin of 35.4% in the prior year quarter. Non-GAAP operating loss for the second quarter was $27.6 million compared with non-GAAP operating loss of $9.3 million in the prior quarter and non-GAAP operating loss of $0.9 million in the prior year quarter.

March Quarter Outlook

Oleg Khaykin noted: "Order trends are starting to improve across all of our end markets with the exception of computing. As a result, we currently expect revenue to range from $220 million to $235 million. Gross margin is expected to be between 22% and 23% mainly due to low factory utilization and the continued reduction of our inventory.

"The market indicators are showing encouraging signs that a bottom has formed and demand is slowly starting to improve. As demand returns into the summer, we would expect positive momentum from rising utilization, increasing turns and improving product mix," concluded Mr. Khaykin.

The following table outlines International Rectifier's current forward-looking March quarter outlook (on a GAAP basis):

Revenue

$220 to $235 million

Gross margin

22% to 23%

(1) Net income (loss) per common share is computed using the two-class method as required by accounting rules.We do not pay dividends; however, net income must be allocated to unvested restricted stock units ("RSUs") on which we could pay dividend equivalents.The amount of net income allocated to these RSUs is excluded from income available to common shareholders in the calculation of earnings per share.As we were in a net loss for the three months ended December 23, 2012, September 23, 2012, and December 25, 2011, we did not have any income to allocate to unvested RSUs on which we could pay dividend equivalents.
