TAIPEI, Taiwan and MILPITAS, Calif., Jan. 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silicon Motion Technology Corporation (NasdaqGS: SIMO) (“Silicon Motion” or the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2016.  For the fourth quarter, net sales decreased 9% sequentially to $144.2 million from $158.6 million in the third quarter. Net income (GAAP) decreased to $26.2 million or $0.73 per diluted ADS (GAAP) from a net income (GAAP) of $32.7 million or $0.92 per diluted ADS (GAAP) in the third quarter.

Embedded Storage comprises primarily eMMC and client SSD controllers and enterprise and industrial SSD solutions.

For the fourth quarter, net income (non-GAAP) decreased to $33.9 million or $0.95 per diluted ADS (non-GAAP) from a net income (non-GAAP) of $38.3 million or $1.07 per diluted ADS (non-GAAP) in the third quarter.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Review
“Due to continuing strength of our SSD controller business, representing our ninth consecutive quarter of SSD controller growth, we achieved fourth quarter sales that were on the high-end of our expectations,” said Wallace Kou, President and CEO of Silicon Motion. “Strength from our SSD controllers was however  offset by seasonally weak eMMC controller sales and SSD Solutions project transitions.”
