Synaptics Reports Results for First Quarter Fiscal 2018
Tuesday, November 07, 2017 4:26:55 PM ET
-- Revenue of $417.4 million
-- GAAP net loss per share of $0.79 due primarily to acquisition related items
-- Non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $1.03
-- Consumer IoT acquisitions complete; solutions for infinity displays on track
Synaptics Incorporated (SYNA ), the leading developer of human interface solutions, today reported financial results for its first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2017.
Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 increased 8 percent from the comparable quarter last year and declined 2 percent sequentially to $417.4 million. GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $26.5 million, or $0.79 per share. The GAAP net loss was driven primarily by acquisition related items, including amortization of acquired intangibles and inventory fair value adjustments, as well as the discount amortization associated with the accounting for its convertible notes.
Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 increased $900,000 from the comparable quarter last year and decreased $6.3 million sequentially to $35.1 million. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $1.03, an increase of 7 percent from the comparable quarter last year and a decrease of 13 percent sequentially. (See below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" and the attached table for a description and a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.)
"Im pleased to report a solid first fiscal quarter for Synaptics," stated Rick Bergman, President and CEO. "We completed two major acquisitions during the period, and our entry into the fast growing consumer IoT market is off to a strong start. Contributions from this new platform are expected to approach a quarter of Synaptics total revenue in the coming quarter, while also driving increased customer diversification over time. We continue to execute well across our multiple product platforms and remain on track to deliver on key milestones for the mobile market with in-display fingerprint and OLED DDIC."
First Quarter 2018 Business Metrics (fingerprint products classified according to type of device)
-- Revenue mix from mobile products was approximately 70 percent. Revenue from mobile products of $292.9 million was down 15 percent sequentially and down 7 percent year-over-year. Mobile products revenue includes all touchscreen, display driver, and applicable fingerprint products.
-- Approximately $17.3 million and $23.0 million of mobile product revenue for Q1 fiscal 2017 and Q4 fiscal 2017, respectively, has been reclassified as IoT revenue.
-- Revenue mix from PC products was approximately 16 percent. Revenue from PC products totaled $65.3 million, a sequential increase of 14 percent and an increase of 19 percent year-over-year, and includes applicable fingerprint products.
-- Revenue mix from consumer IoT products was approximately 14%. Revenue from consumer IoT products totaled $59.2 million and includes $20.2 million of revenue formerly classified as mobile revenue.
Wajid Ali, CFO, added, "Considering our backlog of $340 million entering the December quarter, subsequent bookings, customer forecasts and product sell-in and sell-through timing patterns, and the resulting expected product mix, we anticipate revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 to be in the range of $410 to $450 million. We expect the revenue mix from mobile, consumer IoT and PC products to be approximately 62 percent, 24 percent and 14 percent, respectively."
Cash at September 30, 2017 was $200 million. In the first quarter of fiscal 2018, the company used $397 million for acquisitions and $94 million to repurchase approximately 1.7 million shares of its common stock, partially offset by net debt proceeds of $293 million and $40 million of cash from operations.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In evaluating its business, Synaptics considers and uses Non-GAAP Net Income, which we define as net income excluding share-based compensation, acquisition related costs, and certain other non-cash or recurring and non-recurring items the company doesnt believe are indicative of its core operating performance as a supplemental measure of operating performance. Non-GAAP Net Income is not a measurement of the companys financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income. The company presents Non-GAAP Net Income because it considers it an important supplemental measure of its performance since it 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, acquisition related costs, and certain other non-cash or recurring and non-recurring items. Non-GAAP Net Income has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the companys GAAP net income. The principal limitations of this measure are that it does not reflect the companys actual expenses and may thus have the effect of inflating its net income and net income per share as compared to its operating results reported under GAAP.
As presented in the "Reconciliation of GAAP Financial Measures to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" tables that follow, each of the non-GAAP financial measures excludes one or more of the following items:
Acquisition related costs.
Acquisition related costs primarily consist of:
-- amortization of purchased intangibles, which includes acquired intangibles such as developed technology, customer relationships, trademarks, backlog, licensed technology, patents, and in-process technology when post-acquisition development is determined to be substantively complete,
-- changes in contingent consideration,
-- inventory adjustments affecting the carrying value of inventory acquired in an acquisition,
-- transitory post-acquisition incentive programs negotiated in connection with an acquired business or designed to encourage post-acquisition retention of key-employees, and
-- legal and consulting costs associated with acquisitions that have been announced and are expected to close or have closed, including non-recurring post-acquisition costs and services.
These acquisition related costs are not factored into the companys evaluation of its ongoing business operating performance or potential acquisitions, as they are not considered as part of the companys principal operations. Further, the amount of these costs can vary significantly from period to period based on the terms of an earn-out arrangement, revisions to assumptions that went into developing the estimate of the contingent consideration associated with an earn-out arrangement, the size and timing of an acquisition, the lives assigned to the acquired intangible assets, and the maturity of the business acquired. Excluding acquisition related costs from non-GAAP measures provides investors with a basis to compare Synaptics against the performance of other companies without the variability and potential earnings volatility associated with purchase accounting and acquisition related items.
Share-based compensation expense relates to employee equity award programs and the vesting of the underlying awards, which includes stock options, deferred stock units, market stock units and the employee stock purchase plan. Share-based compensation is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is dependent on market forces that are often beyond the companys control. As a result, the company excludes this item from its internal operating forecasts and models. The company believes that non-GAAP measures reflecting adjustments for share-based compensation provide investors with a basis to compare the companys principal operating performance against the performance of peer companies without the variability created by share-based compensation resulting from the variety of equity awards used by other companies and the varying methodologies and assumptions used.
Restructuring costs consist primarily of employee severance and office closure costs, including the reversal of such costs. These costs are generally infrequent, cash-based, and designed to address cost structure inefficiencies. As a result, the company excludes restructuring costs from its internal operating forecasts and models when evaluating its ongoing business performance. The company believes that non-GAAP measures reflecting adjustments for restructuring costs provide investors with a basis to compare the companys principal operating performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by infrequent restructuring costs designed to address cost structure inefficiencies in its business.
Other non-cash items, net.
Other non-cash items, net includes non-cash amortization of debt discount and issuance costs, and the gain on redemption or the accretion of interest income on certain of the companys investments in auction rate securities, in which the cost basis was previously written down in value. These items are excluded from non-GAAP results as either the previous write-down was excluded from non-GAAP results or the item is non-cash. Excluding other non-cash items, net from non-GAAP measures provides investors with a basis to compare Synaptics against the performance of other companies without the variability associated with other non-cash items, net.
Equity investment loss
Equity investment loss represents an adjustment in the book value of an equity investment in a minority owned company. The equity investment loss is a non-cash item. As a result, the company excludes equity investment loss from its internal operating forecasts and models when evaluating its ongoing business performance. The company believes that non-GAAP measures reflecting adjustments for equity investment loss provide investors with a basis to compare the companys principal operating performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by non-cash item.
Non-GAAP tax adjustments.
The company forecasts its long-term non-GAAP tax rate in order to provide investors with improved long-term modeling accuracy and consistency across financial reporting periods by eliminating the effects of certain items in our Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP net income per share, including the type and amount of deductible stock options, delivery of shares under deferred stock unit awards and market stock unit awards, the taxation of post-acquisition intercompany intellectual property cross-licensing or transfer transactions, and the impact of other acquisition items that may or may not be tax deductible. The company intends to evaluate its long-term non-GAAP tax rate annually for significant events, including material tax law changes in the major tax jurisdictions in which the company operates, corporate organizational changes related to acquisitions or tax planning opportunities, and substantive changes in our geographic earnings mix.
