Peregrine Semiconductor Announces Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

  • Second quarter revenue of $52.4 million
  • GAAP second quarter diluted loss per share of $0.01
  • Non-GAAP second quarter diluted income per share of $0.03

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation (Peregrine Semiconductor) (NAS: PSMI) , a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), today announced its second quarter 2013 fiscal year financial results.

Second quarter 2013 revenue was $52.4 million, compared with $43.6 million for the same period in 2012.

As reported under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), second quarter 2013 net loss was $448,000, compared with a GAAP net loss of $26,000 in the same period in 2012. Diluted net loss per share was $0.01 for the second quarter of 2013 and 2012.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2013 was $1.2 million, or $0.03 per diluted share based on weighted average shares outstanding of 35.7 million. This compares with non-GAAP net income of $1.0 million or $0.03 per diluted share based on weighted average shares outstanding of 29.5 million for the same period in 2012.

Gross margin on a GAAP basis for the second quarter of 2013 was 39.6% of revenue, compared to 37.2% of revenue for the same period in 2012. Gross margin on a non-GAAP basis for the second quarter of 2013 was 40.0% of revenue, compared to 37.5% of revenue for the same period in 2012.

"We continued to make great strides in the second quarter of 2013, further demonstrating our leadership position in high-performance RF with new products such as our latest RF switches, which enable carrier aggregation in the first handsets launched on an LTE-Advanced network. We also believe the completion of a multi-year sourcing agreement with Murata for RF switches based on our proprietary UltraCMOS® technology validates the importance of our intellectual property in the marketplace," commented Jim Cable, Chief Executive Officer. "We remain confident in our future growth prospects and continue to expand our product offerings in all areas of high-performance RF, including several new developments announced at the International Microwave Symposium in June that have applications beyond the handset in key markets such as wireless infrastructure, defense, and test and measurement equipment."

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2013, the company expects revenue to be in the range of $58 million to $62 million. Third quarter GAAP gross margin is expected to be in the range of 42% to 44%.

Use of GAAP and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Peregrine Semiconductor prepares its financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for the United States (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial measures such as gross margin, net income and loss per share information for the three and six months ended June 29, 2013, and similar periods from the prior year included in this press release are different from those otherwise presented under GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude non-cash compensation expense for stock options. When evaluating the performance of our business and developing short and long-term plans, we do not consider share-based compensation charges. Although share-based compensation is necessary to attract and retain quality employees, our consideration of share-based compensation places its primary emphasis on overall shareholder dilution rather than the accounting charges associated with such grants. Because of the varying availability of valuation methodologies and subjective assumptions, we believe that the exclusion of share-based compensation allows for more accurate comparison of our financial results to previous periods. In addition, we believe it useful to investors to understand the specific impact of the application of the fair value method of accounting for share-based compensation on our operating results. The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with useful supplemental information about the financial performance of our business, enable comparison of financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in operating our business. However, investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes.

For more information on our non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of such measures to the nearest GAAP measure, please see the "Condensed Consolidated Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results" table in this press release.
