Q4 Revenue of $118.6M, up 10 Percent Y/Y
Q4 Cash from Operations of $27.4M, 23% of revenue
SAN JOSE, Calif., May 5, 2014 — Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT® ) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced results for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 30, 2014.
“We concluded fiscal year 2014 on a high note with strong Q4 revenue, non-GAAP operating margin and earnings per share,” said Greg Waters, president and chief executive officer. “The strength in revenues for the fourth fiscal quarter was primarily driven by sales in our Communications end market as the build-out of global 4G/LTE infrastructure accelerated. Non-GAAP gross margin was slightly impacted by inventory reserves associated with our previous fab closure transition and product mix. However, with our continued focus on expense control, we exceeded our guidance for non-GAAP operating margins and non-GAAP EPS, delivering 19.5% and $0.14 per fully diluted share, respectively.”
“We have successfully transformed IDT into a company that generates earnings power as our revenue continues to grow, all supported by a very strong balance sheet. We are investing in high-growth markets and believe we can grow market share in all of our target market segments through the course of this fiscal year,” concluded Mr. Waters.

The following highlights the Company’s financial performance on both a GAAP and supplemental non-GAAP basis. The company is pursuing the divestiture of its high speed data converter business and is in active discussions with potential buyers. For financial statement purposes, the high speed data converter business is classified as assets held for sale and is treated as discontinued operations for all periods presented. IDT has excluded results from the high speed data converter business from current and historical non-GAAP results. The Company provides supplemental information regarding its operating performance on a non-GAAP basis that excludes certain gains, losses and charges which occur relatively infrequently and which management considers to be outside our core operating results. Non-GAAP results are not in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to non-GAAP information provided by other companies. Non-GAAP information should be considered a supplement to, and not a substitute for, financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

To supplement its consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, IDT uses non-GAAP financial measures which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to exclude certain items, as described in detail below. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional and useful way of viewing aspects of the Company’s operations that, when viewed in conjunction with IDT’s GAAP results, provide a more comprehensive understanding of the various factors and trends affecting the Company’s business and operations. It should also be noted that IDT's non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures used by IDT include:
- Cost of revenues
- Gross profit
- Research and development expenses
- Selling, general and administrative expenses
- Interest income and other
- Provision (benefit) for income taxes, continuing operations
- Operating income (loss)
- Net income (loss) from continuing operations
- Diluted net income (loss) per share, continuing operations; and
- Weighted average shares outstanding - diluted
The Company presents non-GAAP financial measures because the investor community uses non-GAAP results in its analysis and comparison of historical results and projections of the Company's future operating results. These non-GAAP results exclude acquisition related expense, restructuring and divestiture related costs (gain), share-based compensation expense, results from discontinued operations, stockholder expenses and certain other expenses and benefits. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to manage and assess the profitability of the business. These non-GAAP results are also consistent with the way management internally analyzes IDT's financial results.
There are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures supplement, and should be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial measures. Investors should review the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the accompanying press release.
As presented in the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP” tables in the accompanying press release, each of the non-GAAP financial measures excludes one or more of the following items:
Acquisition-related charges are not factored into management’s evaluation of potential acquisitions or IDT’s performance after completion of acquisitions, because they are not related to the Company’s core operating performance. Adjustments of these items provide investors with a basis to compare IDT’s performance to other companies without the variability caused by purchase accounting. Acquisition-related expenses primarily include:
- Amortization of acquisition related intangibles, which include acquired intangibles such as purchased technology, patents, customer relationships, trademarks, backlog and non-compete agreements.
- Acquisition related costs such as legal, accounting and other professional or consulting fees directly related to an acquisition.
- Other acquisition related costs which consists of an accrued deferred closing date fee associated with the acquisition of NXP’s high-speed data converter assets.
- Fair market value adjustment to acquired inventory sold.
Restructuring charges primarily relate to changes in IDT’s infrastructure in efforts to reduce costs and expenses (gains) associated with strategic divestitures and restructuring in force actions. Restructuring charges (gains) are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not considered core operating activities. Although IDT has engaged in various restructuring activities in the past, each has been a discrete event based on a unique set of business objectives. As such, management believes that it is appropriate to exclude restructuring charges (gains) from IDT’s non-GAAP financial measures as it enhances the ability of investors to compare the Company’s period-over-period operating results from continuing operations. Restructuring-related charges (gains) primarily include:
- Severance and retention costs directly related to a restructuring action.
- Facility closure costs consist of ongoing costs associated with the exit of our leased and owned facilities.
- Gain on divestiture consists of gains recognized upon the strategic sale of business units.
- Assets impairments consists of an impairment charge related to a note receivable and subsequent recoveries.
- Asset impairments, consists of the accelerated depreciation of certain design tools no longer in use
These items are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not related to the core operating activities and on-going future operating performance of IDT. Excluding this data allows investors to better compare IDT’s period-over-period performance without such expense, which IDT believes may be useful to the investor community. Other adjustments primarily include:
- Stock based compensation expense.
- Expenses related to stockholder activities reflect advisory fees related to inquiries of Starboard Value LP.
- Compensation expense (benefit) – deferred compensation, consists of gains and losses on marketable equity securities related to our deferred compensation arrangements.
- Loss (gain) on deferred compensation plan securities represents the changes in the fair value of the assets in a separate trust that is invested in corporate owned life insurance under our deferred compensation plan.
- Life insurance proceeds received, represents proceeds received under corporate owned life insurance under our deferred compensation plan.
- Tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments.
- Diluted weighted average shares non-GAAP adjustment, for purposes of calculating non-GAAP diluted net income per share, the GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding is adjusted to exclude the benefits of stock compensation expense attributable to future services not yet recognized in the financial statements that are treated as proceeds assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury method.
