(See the reconciliation tables of GAAP net income to non-GAAP adjusted net income near the end of this release for further details.)
Included in second quarter 2018 GAAP net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income was approximately $3.8 million, net of tax, of non-cash share-based compensation expense. Excluding share-based compensation expense, both GAAP earnings per share (“EPS”) and non-GAAP adjusted EPS would have increased by $0.07 per diluted share for second quarter 2018, $0.07 for second quarter 2017 and $0.10 for first quarter 2018.
EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure), which represents earnings before net interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization, in the second quarter 2018 was a record $64.5 million, or 21.1 percent of revenue, compared to $45.8 million, or 17.3 percent of revenue, in the second quarter 2017 and $54.2 million, or 19.7 percent of revenue in the first quarter 2018. Year-to-date EBITDA was $118.6 million, which is an increase of over 59 percent from the same period in 2017. For a reconciliation of GAAP net income to EBITDA, see the table near the end of this release for further details.
For second quarter 2018, net cash provided by operating activities was $34.4 million. Net cash flow was a negative $30.1 million, including the $36.1 million long-term debt pay down. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) was $13.1 million, which includes $21.4 million of capital expenditures.
As of June 30, 2018, the Company had approximately $159.6 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, long-term debt (including the current portion) totaled approximately $185.8 million, and working capital was approximately $380.8 million.
The results announced today are preliminary, as they are subject to the Company finalizing its closing procedures and customary quarterly review by the Company's independent registered public accounting firm. As such, these results are subject to revision until the Company files its Form 10-Q for the quarter ending June 30, 2018.
Dr. Lu concluded, “After growing 10.8% in the second quarter of 2018, for the third quarter of 2018, we expect continued strong growth with revenue increasing to a range between $313 million and $329 million, or up 2.9 to 8.2 percent sequentially. At the midpoint, this represents a 12.5 percent growth versus third quarter 2017. We expect GAAP gross margin to be 35.8 percent, plus or minus 1 percent. Non-GAAP operating expenses, which are GAAP operating expenses adjusted for amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, are expected to be approximately 21.0 percent of revenue, plus or minus 1 percent. We expect interest expense to be approximately $2.5 million. Our income tax rate is expected to be 29 percent, plus or minus 3 percent, and shares used to calculate diluted EPS for the third quarter are anticipated to be approximately 51.4 million.” Please note that purchase accounting adjustments of $4.0 million, after tax, for Pericom and previous acquisitions are not included in these non-GAAP estimates.
