Intersil Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results

(PRNewswire) —   Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a leading provider of innovative power management and precision analog solutions, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and the year ended January 1, 2016. Fourth quarter revenue of $126.6 million was down 1.4% sequentially, resulting in revenue of $521.6 million for 2015. Gross margin increased again in 2015, and consistently solid operating results and spending controls throughout the year allowed the company to sustain strong profits and cash generation.

Company Highlights

  • 2015 gross margin increased year-over-year by 90 and 100 basis points respectively to 59.0% on a GAAP basis and 59.3% on a non-GAAP basis.
  • The company again reported solid profitability, with non-GAAP operating margin of 20% or greater for the 10th consecutive quarter.
  • Cash and cash equivalents increased to $247 million at year-end, and the company continued to return a majority of free cash flow to shareholders through one of the sector's highest yielding dividends.

Quarterly Results
Revenue for the fourth quarter declined as anticipated driven by lower demand in industrial and infrastructure end markets. Industrial and Infrastructure (I&I) revenue declined 6% sequentially, with all of the major product categories except automotive declining in the quarter. Automotive product demand remained strong and automotive revenue was a record for the quarter and for the year. Fourth quarter Computing and Consumer (C&C) revenue increased 7.5% sequentially and 3% year-over-year. The company's new display and power management ICs shipped into ramping mobile platforms, which drove the growth for the quarter. The breakdown by end market follows:
