Synaptics Reports Record Revenue and Profits in Second Quarter of Fiscal 2008
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan 24, 2008 /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 second quarter ended December 31, 2007. The Company's GAAP results reflect the expensing of non-cash share-based compensation for all periods presented.
Net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2008 was a record $98.7 million, an increase of approximately 30% over $76.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2007. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2008 was a record $14.2 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared with net income of $9.3 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2007, which included a non-recurring restructuring charge of $915,000. Net income, excluding share-based compensation, was $17.0 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2008, compared with $13.0 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2007, which excludes the non-recurring restructuring charge.
"We are pleased to have delivered record revenue and profits in the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2008 as we experienced strong year-over-year growth across all of our target markets. Synaptics has helped lead the way as touch interfaces have been adopted across a wide variety of consumer electronics devices, and our results demonstrate solid execution and the success of our diversification strategy," stated Francis Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Synaptics. "Despite concerns regarding the current outlook for consumer spending, we believe that we are well positioned to take advantage of the positive long-term trends for emerging digital life style products focused on mobility, connectivity, feature-rich applications, and ease of use."
Russ Knittel, Synaptics' Chief Financial Officer, added, "It is clear that issues concerning the economy are impacting the general business outlook and the behavior of our customers. Given the 34% decline in our backlog exiting the December quarter to $37.5 million and recent reductions in customers' forecasts, our current revenue outlook for the March quarter is in the range of $76 to $82 million, representing an 18% to 27% increase over the comparable period last year. Looking out to the June quarter, we currently anticipate sequential revenue growth in the range of 11% to 19% relative to the mid-point of our March quarter outlook. Despite uncertainty in the market, Synaptics is on track to exceed the 25-30% revenue growth outlook for fiscal 2008 that we provided entering the fiscal year, along with record profitability."

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.
