SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 2, 2013 — Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. Net revenues for the quarter were $77.0 million, down three percent from the prior quarter and up seven percent from the first quarter of 2012. GAAP net income for the quarter was $10.9 million or $0.37 per diluted share, compared with $0.33 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.25 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012. GAAP gross margin for the first quarter was 51.7 percent; operating margin was 11.8 percent.
In addition to its GAAP results, the company provided non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expenses, certain acquisition-related expenses, charges related to SemiSouth Laboratories, non-cash interest income, and the tax effects of these items. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $14.0 million or $0.47 per diluted share, compared with $0.47 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.36 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP gross margin for the first quarter was 52.9 percent; non-GAAP operating margin was 18.8 percent.
Commented Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO of Power Integrations: “First-quarter revenues were within our projected range, albeit toward the lower end due in large part to a decline of nearly 20 percent in revenues from the computer market. Nevertheless, recent trends indicate that the broader demand environment is improving. Revenues from industrial and consumer applications, which account for nearly 70 percent of our sales, both increased sequentially in the first quarter. Book-to-bill was well above 1.0 for the quarter as total bookings increased more than 10 percent sequentially. While economic conditions remain uncertain, we believe these factors point toward sequential growth in the second quarter, and we expect our revenues for Q2 to be between $79 million and $85 million.”
