Intersil Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results

(PRNewswire) — Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a leading provider of innovative power management and precision analog solutions, today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2015. Revenue of $132.4 million was down 1.3% sequentially. Strong gross margin and lower operating expenses resulted in solid operating margin for the eighth consecutive quarter. The company reported GAAP earnings per share of $0.28 and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.16.

Company Highlights

  • Gross margin performance was strong at 59.3% on a GAAP basis and 59.6% on a non-GAAP basis.
  • The company again reported solid profitability, with GAAP operating margin of 12.2% and non-GAAP operating margin of 20.3%.
  • Cash and cash equivalents increased to $225 million.
  • New products introduced during the quarter represent industry firsts for power management in tablets and ultrabooks, wearables and industrial applications.

Quarterly Results
Revenue for the second quarter was slightly lower than expected due to persistent demand weakness in computing and infrastructure end markets. Computing and Consumer (C&C) revenue grew 2.4% sequentially driven by new smartphone wins. Industrial and Infrastructure (I&I) revenue was down 3.1% sequentially. In the I&I business, strength in automotive and military/aerospace was offset by softness in infrastructure power and industrial analog. The breakdown by end market for the quarter was as follows:
