EL SEGUNDO, Calif., May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navitas Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: NVTS), the industry leader in GaN Power ICs, today announced unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.
Net revenues for the quarter increased to $6.7 million, up 27% from the first quarter of 2021. GAAP gross margin for the quarter was 44.0%.

GAAP loss from operations for the quarter was $35.0 million, compared to a loss of $7.3 million in Q1 2021. On a non-GAAP basis, loss from operations for the quarter was $9.6 million, compared to $5.3 million in Q1 2021. GAAP earnings per diluted share were $0.61, compared to a GAAP loss of $0.37 per share in the first quarter of 2021, while non-GAAP net loss for the quarter was $0.08 per share compared to a net loss of $0.27 per share in Q1 2021.

“We are pleased with our execution in Q1,” said Gene Sheridan, CEO and co-founder. “We have reinforced our #1 position in mobile fast and ultra-fast chargers – reaching over 50,000,000 units shipped with zero reported GaN-related field-failures – and we are on track with GaN, system R&D and customer developments for our expansion into broader consumer, data center, solar and EV markets.”

Navitas’ highest-power GaN power IC, the NV6169, has been launched at the prestigious PCIM Europe conference with 50% more power capability for TV, game console and some data center applications. Additional high-power GaNFast™ ICs are being sampled with significant customer developments underway at data center, solar and EV customers.

In March, based on excellent field reliability and the results of extensive life testing, Navitas announced the industry’s first 20-year limited warranty, strengthening the company’s position to expand in to higher-power, and higher-reliability markets.

In January, Navitas published the wide-bandgap industry’s first sustainability report that comprehensively quantifies the positive impact of GaN power semiconductors on climate change based on global standards. And today Navitas announced it is the first semiconductor company worldwide to achieve CarbonNeutral™ status as accredited by third-party industry-reference, Natural Capital Partners. This verification is another milestone in Navitas’ mission to “Electrify Our World™” – and help customers reach their own environmental goals.

Business Outlook
Second quarter 2022 net revenues are expected to be between $8.0 and $9.0 million.   This guidance factors in some short-term impact from China COVID-related shutdown softness in the supply chain, and in demand for smartphones, which is partially offset by stronger sales from new customers in other regions. Full-year 2022 net revenues are expected to double compared to 2021, as accelerated customer wins and regional expansion offset slightly lower-than-expected Q2 revenues. GAAP gross margin is expected to be approximately 42% (+/- 1%) for the second quarter and 41% (+/-1%) for the full year.

Earnings Webcast
Navitas will hold a public webcast at 2:00 p.m. PDT today to discuss first quarter 2022 results. The live public webcast can be accessed on Navitas’ Investor Relations website at https://edge.media-server.com/mmc/p/prudpkfg.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release and statements in our public webcast include financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), which we refer to as “non-GAAP financial measures”, including (i) non-GAAP operating expenses and (ii) non-GAAP net loss from operations. Each of these non-GAAP financial measures is adjusted from GAAP results to exclude certain expenses, which are outlined in the “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to GAAP Results” in the tables below. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with useful supplemental information about our operating performance and enable comparison of financial trends and results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures offer an additional view of our operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of the results of operations. However, these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This press release, including the paragraph headed “Business Outlook”, includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Forward-looking statements may be identified by the use of words such as “we expect” or “are expected to be”, “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “forecast,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “seek,” or other similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding estimates and forecasts of other financial and performance metrics and projections of market opportunity and market share. These statements are based on various assumptions, whether or not identified in this press release. These statements are also based on current expectations of the management of Navitas and are not predictions of actual performance. Such forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by any investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions and expectations. Many actual events and circumstances that affect performance are beyond the control of Navitas. Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including the possibility that the expected growth of Navitas’ business will not be realized, or will not be realized within the expected time period, due to, among other things: Navitas’ goals and strategies and its ability to achieve and implement them, the success of future business development efforts, Navitas’ financial condition and results of operations; Navitas’ customer relationships and ability to retain and expand these customer relationships; Navitas’ ability to accurately predict future revenues for the purpose of appropriately budgeting and adjusting Navitas’ expenses; Navitas’ ability to diversify its customer base and develop relationships in new markets; Navitas’ ability to scale its technology into new markets and applications; the effects of competition on Navitas’ business, including actions of competitors with an established presence and resources in markets we hope to penetrate; the level of demand in Navitas’ customers’ end markets, both generally and with respect to successive generations of products or technology; Navitas’ ability to attract, train and retain key qualified personnel; changes in government trade policies, including the imposition of tariffs; the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Navitas’ business, results of operations and financial condition; the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy, including but not limited to Navitas’ supply chain and the supply chains of customers and suppliers; regulatory developments in the United States and foreign countries; and Navitas’ ability to protect its intellectual property rights. These and other risk factors are discussed in the Risk Factors section beginning on p. 11 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, which we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 31, 2022 and as thereafter amended, and in other documents we filed with the SEC. If any of these risks materialize or our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements.

In addition, forward-looking statements reflect Navitas’ expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this press release. Navitas anticipates that subsequent events and developments will cause Navitas’ assessments to change. However, while Navitas may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, Navitas specifically disclaims any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing Navitas’ assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this press release.
