Additional Highlights

  • Power Integrations paid a dividend of $0.13 per share on December 30, 2016. A dividend of $0.14 per share is scheduled to be paid on March 31, 2017, to stockholders of record as of February 28, 2017.

Adoption of New Accounting Standard for 2017

Effective January 1, 2017, Power Integrations adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s new standard for revenue recognition (ASC 606), under which the company is required to recognize revenues on sales to distributors upon shipment (the “sell-in” method) beginning with the first quarter of 2017. Prior to adopting ASC 606, the company utilized the “sell-through” method for a high percentage of its distribution sales; under this method revenue was deferred until distributors reported that they had sold the company’s products to end customers.

In adopting the new standard, Power Integrations elected to use the full retrospective method; accordingly, the company has recast its results for 2015 and 2016 as if the new standard had been in effect during those years. The table below displays the company’s revenues, cost of revenues and GAAP earnings per share for 2015 and 2016 as originally reported and as recast under the new standard. Full recast income statements, balance sheets and cash-flow statements, including reconciliations of non-GAAP measures, are available on the company’s investor website.
