Diodes Incorporated Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2015 Financial Results

On November 24, 2015, Diodes Incorporated acquired Pericom Semiconductor Corporation with headquarters in Milpitas, California, and with design centers and technical sales and support offices globally. Pericom enables serial connectivity with the industry's most complete solutions for the computing, communications, consumer and embedded market segments. Pericom's analog, digital and mixed-signal integrated circuits, along with its frequency control products are essential in the timing, switching, bridging and conditioning of high-speed signals required by today's ever-increasing speed and bandwidth demanding applications.

Safe Harbor Statement Under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995: Any statements set forth above that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Such statements include statements regarding our expectation that: Pericom is well-aligned with our acquisition strategy and expands our analog footprint, while also adding a strong mixed-signal connectivity offering that will drive expanded product content in target applications; over the past two months since closing the acquisition, we have been diligently working on the integration efforts to maximize sales, design, operations and administrative efficiencies for 2016; as expected, this transaction is accretive to our margins and non-GAAP earnings per share; however, I believe we are well positioned for margin expansion in 2016 based on improvements in product mix and manufacturing performance as well as the benefit from previous cost reductions; looking forward to the coming year, we remain focused on integrating the Pericom acquisition to capitalize on the opportunities for margin expansion and cross-selling synergies for expanded content across targeted and emerging applications; for the first quarter of 2016, we expect revenue to range between $214 million and $235 million, or flat to up 10 percent sequentially, including the first full quarter of revenue from Pericom; we expect non-GAAP gross margin to be 30.0 percent, plus or minus 2 percent; non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately 25.5 percent of revenue, plus or minus 1 percent; we expect interest expense to be approximately $3.4 million and our income tax rate to be 28 percent, plus or minus 3 percent. Shares used to calculate diluted EPS for the first quarter are anticipated to be approximately 49.5 million; and note that purchase accounting adjustments related to Pericom and previous acquisitions of $7.3 million after tax are not included in these non-GAAP estimates. Potential risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, such factors as: the risk that such expectations may not be met; the risk that the expected benefits of acquisitions may not be realized; the risk that we may not be able to maintain our current growth strategy or continue to maintain our current performance, costs and loadings in our manufacturing facilities; risks of domestic and foreign operations, including excessive operation costs, labor shortages, higher tax rates and our joint venture prospects; the risk of unfavorable currency exchange rates; our future guidance may be incorrect; the global economic weakness may be more severe or last longer than we currently anticipated; breaches of our information technology systems; the possibility that no shares will be repurchased; the risk that the expected benefits of share repurchases will not be realized; and other information including the “Risk Factors,” detailed from time to time in Diodes’ filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
