Second quarter revenue of $134.0 million was up sequentially and year-over-year

(PRNewswire) —   Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a leading provider of innovative power management and precision analog solutions, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended July 1, 2016. Second quarter revenue of $134.0 million was up 3.7% sequentially and 1.2% year-over-year.

Company Highlights

  • Both Consumer and Computing (C&C) and Industrial and Infrastructure (I&I) revenue were up year-over-year.
  • I&I demand improved broadly, resulting in 7.8% sequential growth.
  • Gross margin increased sequentially again to 59.4% on a GAAP basis and 59.6% on a non-GAAP basis.
  • Planned closure of a portion of the company's manufacturing operations resulted in restructuring charges of $13.5 million, lowering GAAP operating margin and reducing GAAP earnings per share to $0.01.
  • Non-GAAP operating margin and earnings per share increased on both a sequential and year-over-year basis and were 21.1% and $0.17 for the quarter. 
  • Cash and cash equivalents increased again to $257 million at quarter-end.

Quarterly Results
Revenue for the second quarter improved sequentially due to strength in the company's I&I products. Aerospace revenue achieved a recent record, while automotive revenue was near record levels in the quarter. Both I&I power and industrial analog were up again sequentially as a result of improving end market demand. Second quarter C&C revenue decreased 3.6% sequentially due to expected weakness in consumer demand, but was up 2% year-over-year.

"With year-over-year growth in both of our key businesses, we're encouraged with the progress in returning Intersil to a sustained growth path," said Necip Sayiner, president and CEO of Intersil. "An improving cost structure and strong gross margins are providing for good earnings leverage as we move closer to our long-term target operating model."
