SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 27, 2017 — Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. Results are calculated using the “sell-in” method of revenue recognition on sales to distributors, reflecting the company’s adoption of ASC 606 effective January 1, 2017. Prior-period results have been recast as if ASC 606 had been in effect for those periods.
Net revenues for the first quarter were $104.7 million, an increase of two percent from the prior quarter, and an increase of 19 percent from the first quarter of 2016. Net income was $14.1 million or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to $0.48 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.35 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2016.
In addition to its GAAP results, the company provided certain non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets and the tax effects of these items. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter was $19.1 million or $0.63 per diluted share, compared with $0.70 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.55 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2016.
Commented Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO of Power Integrations: “We are off to a strong start in 2017 with 19 percent revenue growth in the first quarter. Our growth is being fueled by innovative products such as our InnoSwitch™ ICs, and by multi-year secular trends such as energy-efficiency, faster charging for mobile devices, smarter homes and appliances, LED lighting, renewable energy, and the growing use of battery power in transportation, power tools and other applications. We also have a robust pipeline of new products coming to market over the next several quarters, which we believe will further enhance our competitive positioning and expand our addressable market.”

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the company's consolidated financial statements, which
are presented according to GAAP, the company provides certain non-GAAP
financial information that excludes stock-based compensation expenses
recorded under ASC 718-10, amortization of acquisition-related
intangible assets (including in-place lease intangible assets) and the
tax effects of these items. The company uses these measures in its
financial and operational decision-making and, with respect to one
measure, in setting performance targets for compensation purposes. The
company believes that these non-GAAP measures offer important analytical
tools to help investors understand its operating results, and to
facilitate comparability with the results of companies that provide
similar measures. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical
tools and are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute
for GAAP financial information. For example, stock-based compensation is
an important component of the company’s compensation mix, and will
continue to result in significant expenses in the company’s GAAP results
for the foreseeable future, but is not reflected in the non-GAAP
measures. Also, other companies, including companies in Power
Integrations’ industry, may calculate non-GAAP measures differently,
limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.
