SAN JOSE, Calif., May 4, 2015 — Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI) today announced results for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 29, 2015.
“We concluded fiscal year 2015 with exceptional results across the board. Fourth quarter fiscal 2015 revenue grew by more than 33 percent year-over-year, non-GAAP operating margin for the quarter reached 29%, and free cash flow as a percent of revenue reached 27% on a trailing twelve month basis. In addition, we achieved key new design wins in each of our primary businesses,” said Greg Waters, president and chief executive officer. “Revenues from our High Performance Computing/Data Center business reached record levels in the fourth quarter, driven by the increasing demands of mobile data and real-time processing. RF and wireless charging, both relatively new businesses, became established businesses in fiscal 2015, and based on design win activity, look to continue growing strongly. Additionally, our board recently increased our share repurchase authorization to $300 million. This replaces the prior authorization, which had a remaining balance of $27 million at the end of fiscal Q4. These results, combined with our strong balance sheet and the leverage in our business model, position us to continue our momentum into the next fiscal year,” concluded Mr. Waters.

The following highlights the Company’s financial performance on both a GAAP and supplemental non-GAAP basis. 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. A complete reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results from continuing operations is attached to this press release.

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;
- Net income from continuing operations;
- Diluted net income 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. 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.
- Fair market value adjustment to acquired inventory sold.
Restructuring related. 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 including accelerated depreciation of certain assets no longer in use and impairment charge related to a note receivable and subsequent recoveries.
Other adjustments. 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.
- 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. Effective first quarter of fiscal 2015 the Company used a projected long-term non-GAAP tax rate of 4%. When projecting this long-term rate, the Company evaluated its current long-term projections, current tax structure and other factors such as the Company’s existing tax positions in various jurisdictions and key legislations in major jurisdictions where the company operates. The Company intends to re-evaluate this long-term rate only on an annual basis. This long-term non-GAAP tax rate eliminates the effects of non-recurring and period specific items which can vary in size and frequency, and will provide better consistency within the interim reporting periods. This long-term rate could be subject to change for a variety of reasons, for example, significant structural changes in the geographic earnings mix including acquisition activity, or fundamental tax law changes in major jurisdictions where the Company operates.
- 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.
