indie Semiconductor Achieves High End of Revenue Guidance Range in Q1 2022

  • Delivers 171% Year-over-Year and 16% Sequential Revenue Growth to a Record $22.0M
  • Expands Non-GAAP Gross Margin to 47.4%, up 710 Basis Points Year-over-Year and 110 Basis Points Sequentially
  • Guides Q2 2022 to a ≥ $100M Annualized Revenue Run-rate with Further Non-GAAP Gross Margin Expansion

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 12, 2022 — indie Semiconductor, Inc. (Nasdaq: INDI), an Autotech solutions innovator, today announced first quarter results for the period ended March 31, 2022. First quarter revenue was up 171 percent from the same period a year ago and 16 percent sequentially to a record $22.0 million, at the high end of the Company’s prior guidance range and exceeding analyst consensus estimates. Non-GAAP gross margin expanded 710 basis points year-over-year and 110 basis points sequentially to 47.4 percent, better than indie’s 47.0 percent guidance for the quarter. On a GAAP basis, first quarter 2022 operating loss was $34.3 million compared to $8.1 million in the year ago timeframe. Non-GAAP operating loss for the first quarter of 2022 was $16.5 million versus $7.6 million during the same period last year, reflecting increasing customer-driven R&D and marketing investments as well as incremental public company infrastructure costs.

“indie is off to a great start in 2022, delivering record first quarter revenue fueled by growing demand for our highly innovative Autotech solutions,” said Donald McClymont, indie’s chief executive officer. “Our outperformance versus the industry in the face of continued supply chain headwinds reflects indie’s differentiated product portfolio and our team’s ability to obtain committed volumes from our strategic supply partners. At a higher level, we are well positioned to capitalize on several powerful automotive megatrends, including ADAS, enhanced user experience and electrification. We believe our deeper R&D investments coupled with successful acquisition integrations will leverage the indie platform to accelerate growth, enable us to become the leading provider of edge sensors across all key modalities and, in turn, create shareholder value.”

Q1 Business Highlights

  • Commenced sampling of Surya™, a highly integrated LiDAR SoC, augmented by TeraXion’s world class lasers and sensors
  • Expanded design win pipeline for wired and wireless charging automotive solutions
  • Captured user experience content at one of the leading US automotive OEMs
  • Extended global reach with the opening of sales and technical support centers of excellence in Japan and South Korea
  • Closed carve-out of Analog Devices’ Symeo radar product development team and 140 related patents and applications

Q2 2022 Outlook

We provide earnings guidance on a non-GAAP basis only because certain information necessary to reconcile such guidance to GAAP is difficult to estimate and dependent on future events outside of our control. Please refer to the attached Discussion Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures in this press release for a further discussion of our use of non-GAAP measures, including quantification of known expected adjustment items.

“Given strong order visibility, set customer ramps and new product launches, we plan to sustainably outpace indie’s addressable markets over the forecast horizon,” said Thomas Schiller, indie’s chief financial officer and executive vice president of strategy. “Specifically, for the second quarter of 2022, we anticipate accelerating top-line growth on the order of 172 to 183 percent year-over-year with non-GAAP gross margin expansion into the 48 percent range. At the mid-point of our revenue guidance, indie will be on a greater than $100 million annualized run-rate. Further, based on our design win momentum and planned operating leverage, we remain on track to achieve profitability in the second half of next year, representing another key milestone toward our target model of 60 percent gross and 30 percent operating margins.”
