MaxLinear, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2015 Financial Results

Fourth Quarter 2015 Revenue Increases 205 Percent Year-over-Year to $98.9 Million,
Bringing Full-Year 2015 Revenue to $300.4 Million, Representing an Increase of 126 Percent

CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a leading provider of radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for cable and satellite broadband communications, the connected home, and for data center, metro, and long-haul fiber networks, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2015.

Management Commentary

“We are pleased to announce strong fourth quarter 2015 revenue of $98.9 million, consistent with our revised guidance issued on January 6, 2016, representing an increase of approximately 4 percent sequentially, an increase of approximately 205 percent year-over-year, and sequential expansion in both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins to 56.4% and 58.1%, respectively. These results bring to close another successful year in which we increased our annual revenue by 126 percent. This strong annual revenue increase was not only enabled by the acquisition of Entropic in April 2015, but also by meaningful contributions from our organic initiatives in satellite pay TV and high-speed optical interconnect markets. The strength in fourth quarter revenue was broad-based, with increases derived from the early ramp of high-speed optical interconnect solutions addressing 100Gbps long-haul infrastructure upgrades in China, and additional growth across a range of cable and satellite platforms more than offsetting seasonal weakness in legacy video SoCs,” commented Kishore Seendripu, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO.

“We are also pleased to report a strong quarter of operating cash flow, one in which we generated approximately $25 million. The strong cash flow generation reflects our continued focus on supply-chain optimization, tight operating expense management, and related progress made towards the integration of Entropic. We remain encouraged by the progress we are making in expanding our strategic footprint in our core broadband operator markets. At the same time, we are also exploiting new and exciting opportunities for our leading analog and mixed-signal technology platform in the wireless infrastructure, data-center, metro and long-haul telecommunications, and cable infrastructure markets.”

Forward-looking statements include, among others, statements concerning our future financial performance (including our current guidance for first quarter 2016 revenue and gross profit percentage); the impact of our recent acquisitions of Entropic and Physpeed; and trends and growth opportunities in our product markets. These forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause actual results to be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.

Risks and uncertainties affecting our business, operating results, financial condition, and stock price, include, intense competition in our industry; our dependence on a limited number of customers for a substantial portion of our revenues; uncertainties concerning how end user markets for our products will develop; potential uncertainties arising from continued consolidation among cable television and satellite operators in our target markets and continued consolidation among competitors within the semiconductor industry generally; our ability to develop and introduce new and enhanced products on a timely basis and achieve market acceptance of those products, particularly as we seek to expand outside of our historic markets; potential decreases in average selling prices for our products; limited trading volumes; risks relating to intellectual property protection and the prevalence of intellectual property litigation in our industry, including pending litigation against us by a third party in the United States District Court in Delaware; our reliance on a limited number of third party manufacturers; and our lack of long-term supply contracts and dependence on limited sources of supply. In addition to these risks and uncertainties, investors should review the risks and uncertainties contained in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 as amended by Amendment No. 1 filed with the SEC on March 12, 2015; our subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q; and our Current Reports on Form 8-K.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net income, gross profit percentage, operating expenses, operating margins and earnings per share. These supplemental measures exclude the effects of (i) stock-based compensation expense and its related tax effect, if any; (ii) an accrual related to our performance based bonus plan for 2015, which we intend to settle in shares of our class A common stock in 2016; (iii) an accrual related to our performance based bonus plan for 2014, which we settled in stock in May 2015; (iv) amortization of inventory step-up; (v) amortization of purchased intangible assets; (vi) impairment of production masks; (vii) severance charges; (viii) restricted merger proceeds and contingent consideration; (ix) acquisition and integration costs related to our recently completed acquisitions of Physpeed and Entropic; (x) professional fees and settlement costs related to our previously disclosed IP litigation matters; (xi) impairment losses for intangible assets; (xii) restructuring charges related to our acquisition of Entropic; and (xiii) release of valuation allowance due to net deferred tax liability acquired. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with and do not serve as an alternative for GAAP. We believe that these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our GAAP results of operations. These non-GAAP measures should only be viewed in conjunction with corresponding GAAP measures. We compensate for the limitations of non-GAAP financial measures by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of our performance.

We believe that non-GAAP financial measures can provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain non-cash and other one-time expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results. Among other uses, our management uses non-GAAP measures to compare our performance relative to forecasts and strategic plans and to benchmark our performance externally against competitors. In addition, management’s incentive compensation will be determined in part using these non-GAAP measures because we believe non-GAAP measures better reflect our core operating performance.

The following are explanations of each type of adjustment that we incorporate into non-GAAP financial measures:

Stock-based compensation expense relates to equity incentive awards granted to our employees, directors, and consultants. Our equity incentive plans are important components of our employee incentive compensation arrangements and are reflected as expenses in our GAAP results. Stock-based compensation expense has been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense for MaxLinear. In addition, we exclude the related tax effect of stock-based compensation expense, if any, from non-GAAP net income.

Bonus payments under our executive and non-executive bonus programs have been excluded from our non-GAAP net income for 2015 and 2014. Bonus payments for the 2014 and first half of the 2015 performance periods were settled through the issuance of shares of Class A common stock under our equity incentive plans in May and August 2015, and we currently expect that bonus payments under our 2015 programs for the second half of 2015 will also be settled in Class A common stock in 2016. While we include the dilutive impact of equity awards in weighted average shares outstanding, the expense associated with stock-based awards reflects a non-cash charge that we exclude from non-GAAP net income.

Restricted stock units to be granted under our equity incentive plan to Physpeed continuing employees if certain 2015 and 2016 revenue targets are met contingent upon continued employment reflect a non-cash charge that we exclude from non-GAAP net income.

Expenses incurred in relation to acquisitions include amortization of purchased intangible assets, amortization of inventory step-up, acquisition and integration costs primarily consisting of professional and consulting fees, restricted merger proceeds which represent merger proceeds held back from the former principal shareholders of Physpeed which will be paid on a quarterly basis through October 31, 2016 and the change in fair value of contingent consideration.

Restructuring charges incurred are related to our restructuring plan which addresses issues primarily relating to the integration of the Company and Entropic businesses. Severance charges incurred relate primarily to our exit of research and development activities in Shanghai, China, and other non-recurring charges related to the termination of employees and transitional employees from the Entropic acquisition.

Expenses incurred in relation to impairment of production masks reflect costs that were previously capitalized but for which future use is no longer expected.

Impairment losses related to the impairments taken on the fair value of acquired intangible assets.

Expenses incurred in relation to our intellectual property litigation include professional fees incurred.

The acquisitions of Entropic and Physpeed resulted in a net deferred tax liability, which led to the release of valuation allowance and a benefit (provision) for income taxes.

Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures for the historic periods disclosed in this press release appear below. Because of the inherent uncertainty associated with our ability to project future charges, particularly related to stock-based compensation and its related tax effects as well as potential impairments, we have not provided a reconciliation for non-GAAP guidance provided for the first quarter of 2016.
