Synaptics Reports Results for First Quarter of Fiscal 2011
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct 21, 2010 /PRNewswire 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 its first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2010.
Net revenue of $153.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was a record, an increase of 28% compared with $119.6 million in the comparable quarter last year, and an increase of 5% compared with $145.8 million in the prior quarter. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was $18.7 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, compared with net income of $9.8 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, in the comparable quarter last year and net income of $19.3 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.
Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was $24.2 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, compared with net income of $17.2 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 and net income of $24.8 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. (See attached table for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results.)
"Fiscal 2011 is off to a strong start as we achieved record revenue during the first quarter," stated Russ Knittel, Interim President and CEO. "Revenue from the PC market was weaker than anticipated, reflecting the widely reported softness in consumer notebook demand, while revenue from mobile touchscreen applications reached a new record level and more than doubled year-over-year. The broad based adoption of touch technology in consumer electronics is just beginning, and we are making the necessary investments to meet the expanding opportunities in front of us."
PC revenue of $78.9 million represented 51% of total revenue for the first quarter and increased 6% over the comparable quarter last year. Non-PC revenue of $74.3 million increased 65% from the comparable quarter last year and comprised 49% of total revenue for the quarter. Mobile phone applications comprised 47% of the Company's revenue, and the number of mobile phone models shipping with Synaptics' touchscreen solutions reached a new high.
Kathy Bayless, CFO, added, "Considering our backlog of approximately $81 million entering the December quarter, expected product mix, and customer forecasts, we anticipate record revenue of $154 million to $162 million, representing an increase of 16% to 22% over the comparable quarter last year. While we are mindful of the current uncertainty relative to the consumer notebook market and the broader economic environment, we currently expect another quarter of strong demand for our mobile touchscreen solutions."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In evaluating its business, Synaptics considers and uses net income per share excluding share-based compensation, non-cash interest charges, and unusual or non-recurring items as a supplemental measure of operating performance. Net income excluding share-based compensation, non cash interest charges, and unusual or non-recurring items is not a measurement of the Company's financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income. The Company presents net income excluding share-based compensation, non-cash interest charges, and unusual or non-recurring items because it considers it an important supplemental measure of its performance. The Company believes 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, non-cash interest charges, and unusual or non-recurring items. Net income excluding share-based compensation, non-cash interest charges, and unusual or non-recurring items has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the Company's GAAP net income. The principal limitations of this measure are that it does not reflect the Company's actual expenses and may thus have the effect of inflating its net income and net income per share.
