Synaptics Reports First Quarter Results; Expands Stock Repurchase Program
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct 20, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Synaptics (Nasdaq: SYNA), a leader in interface solutions for mobile computing, communications, and entertainment devices, today reported financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2005. The Company's GAAP results reflect the adoption of SFAS 123(R) regarding option expensing.
Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2006 was $51.7 million, an increase of approximately 36% over the $38.1 million of net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2005.
Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2006, which includes $3.3 million in non-cash share-based compensation charges partially offset by an associated tax benefit of $690,000, was $5.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, an increase of approximately 24% compared with $4.4 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2005.
Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2006, which excludes non-cash share-based compensation net of tax, was $8.1 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, an increase of approximately 81% compared with non-GAAP net income of $4.5 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2005.
"Results for the September quarter were generally as anticipated, with strong demand for our solutions in PC-based applications countered by lower demand in portable music player applications," stated Francis Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Synaptics. "While we detect some concern from customers regarding consumer spending, we remain cautiously optimistic regarding overall demand levels as we enter the traditionally strong holiday period. As a total solutions provider to a large number of OEMs, we have a proven track record of executing in dynamic market conditions, and we look to further expand our product offerings and customer base in fiscal 2006."
Russ Knittel, Synaptics' Chief Financial Officer, added, "Based on our current visibility, we expect revenue in the second fiscal quarter to be $46 million to $50 million, which is at the high end of our previously provided guidance. This anticipates seasonal growth in the notebook market and continued declines in revenue from the MP3 market."
Synaptics also announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to an additional $40 million of the Company's common stock in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, depending upon market conditions and other factors. The Company has completed its previous $40 million stock repurchase program, buying back a total of 2.3 million shares.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
Synaptics discloses non-GAAP financial measures of net income and net income per share and believes that this non-GAAP information provides historical comparability of its core operating results over multiple reporting periods. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative to net income and net income per share presented in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP"). Further, these non-GAAP financial measures are unlikely to be comparable to non-GAAP information provided by other companies. In accordance with SEC regulations, reconciliation of the Synaptics U.S. GAAP information to the non-GAAP information is provided in the tables attached. We will also make available on the investor relations page of our web site at www.synaptics.com this press release, which includes a reconciliation of the U.S. GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures and a replay of the webcast.
