GAAP net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 were $492.7 million, up 6.5% sequentially from net sales of $462.8 million in the immediately preceding quarter, and up 28.5% from GAAP net sales of $383.3 million in the prior year’s second fiscal quarter. GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $99.8 million, or 46 cents per diluted share, up 27.0% from GAAP net income of $78.6 million, or 37 cents per diluted share, in the immediately preceding quarter, and up from a GAAP net loss of $21.2 million, or a loss of 11 cents per diluted share, in the prior year’s second fiscal quarter. In the second quarter of fiscal 2014, GAAP net income included amortization of acquired intangibles of $23.7 million.

Non-GAAP net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 were $492.7 million, up 6.5% sequentially from non-GAAP net sales of $462.8 million in the immediately preceding quarter, and up 20.8% from non-GAAP net sales of $407.8 million in the prior year’s second fiscal quarter. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was a record $136.4 million, or 63 cents per diluted share, up 13.3% from non-GAAP net income of $120.4 million, or 57 cents per diluted share, in the immediately preceding quarter, and up 39.5% from non-GAAP net income of $97.7 million, or 48 cents per diluted share, in the prior year’s second fiscal quarter. For the second quarters of fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2013, our non-GAAP results exclude the effect of share-based compensation, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, inventory valuation costs, severance costs, earn out adjustments and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions), and non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP and GAAP results is included in this press release.

Microchip also announced today that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of 35.45 cents per share. The quarterly dividend is payable on December 5, 2013 to stockholders of record on November 21, 2013.

“We were very pleased with our execution in the September quarter. Looking at the September quarter compared to the year ago quarter, microcontrollers grew 22.9%, analog grew 25.2% and licensing grew 23.4%, all achieving new revenue records,” said Steve Sanghi, President and CEO. “Our net sales, non-GAAP gross margin percentage and non-GAAP EPS all exceeded the high end of our guidance.”

Mr. Sanghi added, “The revenue growth and the leverage we have achieved in gross margins and operating expenses have been outstanding and enabled us to achieve non-GAAP operating profit of 31.8% in the quarter ended September 30, 2013. Based on three factors: improving gross margins and operating margins in our microcontroller and analog businesses, achieving a substantially better business model from our SMSC acquisition, and our growing licensing business, we have revised our long-term model upwards to be between 34% and 36% non-GAAP operating profit.”

“As we anticipated in our July earnings conference call, our 8-bit microcontrollers did set a new revenue record in the September quarter, as did our 16-bit and 32-bit microcontroller businesses. Our overall microcontroller net sales grew a strong 6.9% sequentially in the September quarter to achieve an all time record of $321 million,” said Ganesh Moorthy, Chief Operating Officer. “Our 16-bit microcontroller net sales were up 10.9% sequentially in the September quarter, achieving a new record for net sales. 16-bit microcontroller net sales was also up 48.1% over the year ago quarter. Our 32-bit microcontroller net sales were up 24% sequentially in the September quarter, registering another strong quarter of growth to also set a new record. 32-bit microcontroller net sales were also up 53.4% over the year ago quarter.”

Rich Simoncic, Vice President, Analog and Interface Products Division, said, “Our analog net sales grew 5.1% sequentially in the September quarter, the 8th consecutive quarter of sequential growth, to also achieve a new record, and continues to perform exceptionally well. Analog net sales were also up 25.2% from the year ago quarter. Analog net sales represented 22% of Microchip’s overall net sales in the September quarter and it remains one of the best performing Analog franchises in the industry.”

Eric Bjornholt, Microchip’s Chief Financial Officer, said, “We had strong free cash flow generation in the September quarter of $126.4 million prior to our dividend payment. The dividend that we announced today marks the thirty-ninth occasion that we have increased our dividend payment, and our cumulative dividends paid have reached almost $2.1 billion."

Mr. Sanghi concluded, “I want to thank all of the employees of Microchip for their contribution in making the financial results for the September 2013 quarter outstanding in every respect. Looking at our year-over-year results, our September quarter non-GAAP net sales were up 20.5%, far exceeding the growth of the industry and our competitors. The December quarter is typically Microchip’s weakest quarter of the year due to the various holidays. Taking the global economic picture and these factors into consideration we expect Microchip’s total net sales in the December quarter to be flat to down 6% sequentially.”

Microchip’s Highlights for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2013:

  • Microchip introduced two new development kits for its 32-bit PIC32 microcontrollers.

  • Microchip’s inventory days at December 31, 2013 are expected to be flat to up eight days compared to the September 30, 2013 levels. We believe our inventory position will enable us to continue to service our customers effectively while allowing us to control future capital expenditures. Our actual inventory level will depend on the inventory that our distributors decide to hold to support their customers, overall demand for our products and our production levels.
  • Capital expenditures for the quarter ending December 31, 2013 are expected to be approximately $35 million. Capital expenditures for all of fiscal year 2014 are anticipated to be approximately $115 million. We are continuing to take actions to selectively invest in the equipment needed to support the expected growth of our new products and technologies.
  • We expect net cash generation during the December quarter of approximately $110 million to $130 million prior to the dividend payment.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures: Our Non-GAAP adjustments, where applicable, include the effect of share-based compensation, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, inventory valuation costs, restructuring costs, severance costs, earn-out adjustments and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions), and non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures, the related income tax implications of these items and nonrecurring tax events.

 
We are required to estimate the cost of certain forms of share-based compensation, including employee stock options, restricted stock units and our employee stock purchase plan, and to record a commensurate expense in our income statement. Share-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is affected by the price of our stock at the date of grant. The price of our stock is affected by market forces that are difficult to predict and are not within the control of management. The non-GAAP adjustments related to the impact of our acquisitions, nonrecurring tax events and a portion of our interest expense related to our convertible debentures are either non-cash expenses or non-recurring expenses related to such transactions. Accordingly, management excludes all of these items from its internal operating forecasts and models.
 
We are using non-GAAP net sales, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross profit percentage, non-GAAP operating expenses in dollars and as a percentage of sales including non-GAAP research and development expenses and non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP other expense, net, non-GAAP income tax/tax rate, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share which exclude the items noted in the immediately preceding paragraph, as applicable, to permit additional analysis of our performance.
 

Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they enhance the understanding of our historical financial performance and comparability between periods. Many of our investors have requested that we disclose this non-GAAP information because they believe it is useful in understanding our performance as it excludes non-cash and other charges that many investors feel may obscure our underlying operating results. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to manage and assess the profitability of our business. Specifically, we do not consider such items when developing and monitoring our budgets and spending. As described above, the economic substance behind our decision to exclude such items relates either to these charges being non-cash in nature, or to the one-time nature of the events. Our determination of the above non-GAAP measures might not be the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it should not be construed as a substitute for amounts determined in accordance with GAAP. There are limitations associated with using non-GAAP measures, including that they exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance. Management compensates for this by presenting information on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for investors and providing reconciliations of the GAAP and non-GAAP results.

Diluted Common Shares Outstanding can vary for, among other things, the trading price of our common stock, the actual exercise of options or vesting of restricted stock units, the potential for incremental dilutive shares from our convertible debentures (additional information regarding our share count is available in the investor relations section of our website under the heading “Supplemental Financial Information”), and the repurchase or the issuance of stock. The diluted common shares outstanding presented in the guidance table above assumes an average Microchip stock price in the December 2013 quarter of $41 per share (however, we make no prediction as to what our actual share price will be for such period or any other period and we cannot estimate what our stock option exercise activity will be during the quarter).

Generally, gross margin fluctuates over time, driven primarily by the mix of microcontrollers, analog products and memory products sold and licensing revenue; variances in manufacturing yields; fixed cost absorption; wafer fab loading levels; inventory reserves; pricing pressures in our non-proprietary product lines; and competitive and economic conditions. Operating expenses fluctuate over time, primarily due to net sales and profit levels.
