LOWELL, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 13, 2015 — M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MTSI) (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high-performance analog RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic semiconductor products, today announced a revision to its financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended April 3, 2015, as originally reported on April 28, 2015.
In May 2015, subsequent to MACOM’s April 28, 2015 fiscal second quarter 2015 earnings press release but prior to the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal second quarter ended April 3, 2015, MACOM received notice that a private company in which it held a minority equity investment was sold to a third party and the proceeds MACOM would receive at closing would be less than the carrying value previously reported on MACOM’s consolidated financial statements in the April 28, 2015 earnings release. As required under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), MACOM wrote-down the investment to the estimated the net proceeds that MACOM will receive from the sale, and recorded a charge of $3.5 million to other income (expense), resulting in an increase of its net loss per diluted share of $0.05, or $0.15 and $0.28 net loss per diluted share for the three and six months ended April 3, 2015, respectively.
This non-cash, non-operating charge did not affect MACOM’s previously reported non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.41 in the fiscal second quarter of 2015. A reconciliation between revised GAAP and non-GAAP financial data is included in the supplemental financial data attached to this press release. The revised financial statements reflecting the impairment of the minority equity investment are also attached to this press release.
