Synaptics Reports Third Quarter Results
SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 26, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Synaptics (Nasdaq: SYNA), a leading developer of interface solutions for mobile computing, communications, and entertainment devices, today reported financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2007. The Company's GAAP results reflect the expensing of non-cash share-based compensation for all periods presented.
Net revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2007 was $64.3 million, an increase of approximately 59% over the $40.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2006. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2007 was $5.6 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2006. Net income excluding share-based compensation for the third quarter of fiscal 2007 was $8.1 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, compared with net income excluding share-based compensation of $4.1 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2006. During the third quarter of fiscal 2007, the Company used $27.7 million to buy back approximately 1.1 million shares of its common stock.
"The third quarter marks the second highest quarterly revenue in the Company's history and reflects continued strong demand across all of our markets," stated Francis Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Synaptics. "In the first nine months of our fiscal year, we have already exceeded total revenue and net income for all of fiscal 2006, excluding stock- based compensation and one-time charges. We expect to finish fiscal 2007 with record revenue and are aggressively investing to scale our organization as we continue to rapidly expand our business."
The Company's balance sheet and internally generated cash flow remains strong with $245.2 million of cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2007. The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to an additional $80 million of the Company's common stock over the next two years. Under the repurchase program, depending on market conditions and other factors, shares may be purchased on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. In addition, the Company has determined to repay in cash any conversions of the principal portion of its $125 million Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes. The Company believes these actions are consistent with its confidence in the strong cash flow and long term growth prospects of the Company and its desire to drive higher returns for stockholders. The election to cash settle the principal amount of the Company's convertible debt securities upon conversion will result in the Company using the "treasury stock" method for calculating diluted shares. Going forward, the Company will include diluted shares underlying the convertible notes in its diluted earnings per share calculation only in those periods in which its average closing stock price exceeds the current effective conversion price of $50.53 per share.
"Our recent stock buyback, authorization of additional repurchases, and election to settle any conversions of the Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes in cash further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to enhancing stockholder value while maintaining a capital structure that allows us to continue investing in the growth of our business," concluded Mr. Lee.
Russ Knittel, the Company's Chief Financial Officer, added, "Based on our backlog of $32.3 million entering the June quarter and anticipated new orders during the period, we expect revenue for our fourth fiscal quarter to be up sequentially 6% to 10%, representing a 55% to 61% increase over the comparable period last year. Looking out into the September quarter, current data points and general seasonal trends lead us to believe that revenues will increase on a similar percentage basis sequentially as compared to our June quarter expectations."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In evaluating our business, our management considers and uses net income per share excluding share-based compensation and restructuring costs as a supplemental measure of operating performance. Net income excluding share- based compensation and restructuring costs 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 restructuring costs 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 restructuring costs. Net income excluding share- based compensation and restructuring costs 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. We address these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP net income and using net income excluding share-based compensation and restructuring costs only supplementally.
