SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 4, 2016 — Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI) today announced financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2015.

In addition to its GAAP results, the company provided non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets and other acquisition-related expenses, the tax effects of these items, and a tax benefit recognized in 2014. Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter was $16.9 million or $0.58 per diluted share, compared with $0.55 in the prior quarter and $0.59 in the fourth quarter of 2014.

For the full year, net revenues were $344.0 million, down one percent from the prior year. Net income for the year was $39.1 million or $1.32 per diluted share, compared to $1.93 in the prior year. Non-GAAP net income for 2015 was $2.03 per diluted share, compared to $2.40 in the prior year. Cash flow from operations for the year was $92.2 million, compared to $85.6 million in the prior year.

Commented Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO of Power Integrations: “Despite challenging economic conditions and a steep year-over-year decline in revenues from the PC market, quarterly revenues grew modestly from a year ago, and we generated nearly $25 million in cash flow from operations for the quarter. While we expect the March quarter to be sequentially lower due to seasonal factors, recent order trends and design wins point to strong sequential growth in the second quarter. The InnoSwitch™ product cycle continues to gain steam, and we have a promising pipeline of innovative new products on the way for key growth areas such as rapid charging, efficient lighting, renewable energy and high-power industrial applications.”
