SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug 09, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ --
Synaptics (Nasdaq: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions for mobile computing, communications, and entertainment devices, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended June 30, 2007. The Company's GAAP results reflect the expensing of non-cash share-based compensation for all periods presented.
Net revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 was $71.6 million, an increase of approximately 63% over the $43.9 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006. Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 was $7.4 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1.8 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006. Net income, excluding share-based compensation, was $10.0 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007, compared with $4.2 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006.
Net revenue for fiscal 2007 was $266.8 million, an increase of approximately 45% over the $184.6 million for fiscal 2006. Net income for fiscal 2007 was $26.5 million, or $0.94 per diluted share. This compares with net income of $13.7 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, for fiscal 2006. Net income, excluding share-based compensation and non-recurring items for fiscal 2007, was $37.6 million, or $1.31 per diluted share, compared with net income, excluding share-based compensation, of $24.0 million, or $0.85 per diluted share, for fiscal 2006.
"Fiscal 2007 was a stellar year for Synaptics as we achieved record annual revenue, growing our top line 45%, and almost doubling our net income compared with fiscal 2006," stated Francis Lee, president and chief executive officer of Synaptics. "Our solid performance reflects strong growth in all of our target markets. During the year, we also introduced our configurable OneTouch offering. We believe the addition of OneTouch to our solutions portfolio enhances our ability to serve our customers' needs and to compete in multiple fast-growing markets. The growing mobility and digital lifestyle trends play into our strengths as emerging products and applications require intuitive, easy-to-use interface solutions. We are very excited by the expanding opportunities in front of us and believe we are well positioned to deliver record revenues and profits in fiscal 2008."
Russ Knittel, the Company's chief financial officer, added, "Based on our backlog of $46.9 million entering the September quarter and anticipated new orders during the period, we expect revenue for our first fiscal quarter to be up 16% to 19% sequentially, representing a 51% to 55% increase over the comparable period last year. Looking out to the seasonally strong December quarter, current data points lead us to believe that revenues will increase 10% to 15% sequentially as compared to our September quarter expectations."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In evaluating our business, we consider and use net income per share excluding share-based compensation and non-recurring items as a supplemental measure of operating performance. Net income excluding share-based compensation and non-recurring items is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income. We present net income excluding share-based compensation and non-recurring items because we consider it an important supplemental measure of our performance. We believe this measure facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by eliminating potential differences in net income caused by the existence and timing of non-cash compensation charges and non-recurring items. Net income excluding share-based compensation and non-recurring items has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for our GAAP net income. The principal limitations of this measure are that it does not reflect our actual expenses and may thus have the effect of inflating our net income and net income per share.
