Non-GAAP earnings were $0.47/diluted share; GAAP earnings were $0.29/diluted share

Cash flow from operations was $25.1 million for the quarter; company announces new $30 million share-repurchase plan

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 29, 2015 — Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. Net revenues for the second quarter were $85.3 million, up three percent from the prior quarter and down four percent from the second quarter of 2014. GAAP gross margin for the second quarter was 51.6 percent; operating margin was 10.8 percent. Net income for the quarter was $8.6 million or $0.29 per diluted share, compared with $0.21 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.54 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2014. (GAAP net income for the year-ago quarter included a non-recurring tax benefit of $3.3 million.)

In addition to its GAAP results, the company provided non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expenses, certain acquisition-related expenses, the tax effects of these items, and the above-mentioned tax benefit recognized in 2014. Non-GAAP gross margin for the second quarter was 53.1 percent; operating margin was 17.6 percent. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $14.2 million or $0.47 per diluted share, compared with $0.43 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.61 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2014.

Commented Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO of Power Integrations: “Like many of our industry peers, we experienced lower-than-expected demand in the second quarter. However, we proactively adjusted our operating expenses during the quarter and delivered solid earnings and strong cash flow.

“While macroeconomic factors remain a concern, we did see an uptick in sales and bookings in the latter part of the second quarter. We anticipate sequential revenue growth in the third quarter, led by adoption of our new InnoSwitch™ product family, which continues to ramp into the mobile-device market and is now gaining adoption by customers in our other end-markets as well.”
