SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 25, 2019 — Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. Net revenues for the first quarter were $89.2 million, down four percent from the prior quarter and down 13 percent from the first quarter of 2018. Net income was $7.2 million or $0.25 per diluted share compared to $0.77 per share in the prior quarter and $0.46 in the first quarter of 2018. (The prior quarter’s results included a tax benefit from the revision of prior estimates of the transition tax from the 2017 U.S. tax legislation.) Cash flow from operations was $1.1 million for the first quarter.

In addition to its GAAP results, the company provided certain non-GAAP measures that exclude stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, the tax effects of these items, and the above-mentioned tax benefit. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2019 was $12.1 million or $0.41 per diluted share, compared with $0.54 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.67 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2018.

Commented Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO of Power Integrations: “As expected, our first-quarter results reflect the slowdown being felt across the industry. However, we expect strong sequential growth in the second quarter driven largely by increased demand from fast-charging applications in the smartphone market. With the arrival of USB PD technology, we expect adoption of faster chargers to accelerate as OEMs look for new ways to differentiate their products.”

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the company's consolidated financial statements, which are presented according to GAAP, the company provides certain non-GAAP financial information that excludes stock-based compensation expenses recorded under ASC 718-10, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, the tax effects of these items, and tax benefits associated with the 2017 U.S. tax legislation. The company uses these measures in its financial and operational decision-making and, with respect to one measure, in setting performance targets for compensation purposes. The company believes that these non-GAAP measures offer important analytical tools to help investors understand its operating results, and to facilitate comparability with the results of companies that provide similar measures. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools and are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial information. For example, stock-based compensation is an important component of the company’s compensation mix, and will continue to result in significant expenses in the company’s GAAP results for the foreseeable future, but is not reflected in the non-GAAP measures. Also, other companies, including companies in Power Integrations’ industry, may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures are attached to this press release.
