Cash flow from operations was $30.6 million; company increases share-repurchase authorization by $25 million

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 30, 2014 — Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. Net revenues for the quarter were $90.1 million, up one percent from the prior quarter and down two percent compared with the third quarter of 2013. GAAP gross margin for the third quarter was 54.4 percent; operating margin was 18.7 percent. Net income for the quarter was $16.1 million or $0.52 per diluted share, compared with $0.54 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.54 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013.

In addition to its GAAP results, the company provided certain non-GAAP financial measures for the third quarter that exclude stock-based compensation expenses, acquisition-related amortization expenses and the accompanying tax effects. Non-GAAP gross margin for the quarter was 55.3 percent; non-GAAP operating margin was 23.0 percent. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $19.8 million or $0.65 per diluted share, compared with $0.61 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.71 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013.

Commented Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO of Power Integrations: “Revenues and earnings increased sequentially, but like many of our industry peers we saw a slowdown in orders over the course of the quarter, resulting in less-than-seasonal sales growth. Revenues from the communications end-market increased by more than 20 percent sequentially, but demand was less than expected across the other end-market categories.

“While our near-term outlook reflects a tepid demand environment, our profitability and cash flow remain healthy, and our strong balance sheet enables us to further expand our share-repurchase program at an opportune moment. We continue to invest for long-term growth, and we remain optimistic about our expanding addressable market, our pipeline of innovative products, and the growing demand for energy-efficiency and renewable energy.”
