Synaptics Reports Results for Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2016

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synaptics Incorporated (NASDAQ:SYNA), the leading developer of human interface solutions, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and year ended June 30, 2016.

Net revenue for fiscal 2016 totaled $1.67 billion, a decrease of 2 percent from fiscal 2015. GAAP net income for fiscal 2016 declined 35 percent from the prior year to $72.2 million, or $1.91 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for fiscal 2016 decreased 18 percent from the prior year to $180.5 million, or $4.76 per diluted share. (See attached table for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.)

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 declined 32 percent from the comparable quarter last year to $323.9 million. GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 decreased 123 percent from the prior year period net income to a net loss of $7.1 million, or a loss of $0.19 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 declined 72 percent from the prior year period to $17.3 million, or $0.46 per diluted share. (See attached table for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.)

“Fourth quarter results were generally as anticipated, culminating in fiscal 2016 revenue that was similar to last year, as growth from our TDDI and fingerprint authentication offerings was offset by a challenging market for high-end smartphones and weakness in the PC market,” stated Rick Bergman, President and CEO. “We are preparing for a similar revenue scenario in fiscal 2017 and expect our strategies and investments in our key TDDI and fingerprint authentication growth engines to continue to pay off in offsetting anticipated declines in our discrete display driver business. As we look beyond fiscal 2017, our development activities position us for significant opportunities with new and expanding growth pillars, including OLED technology as well as automotive, which will help reignite our growth.”

Fourth Quarter 2016 Business Metrics

  • Revenue mix from mobile and PC products was approximately 88 percent and 12 percent respectively. Fingerprint ID products have been classified according to type of device.
  • Revenue from mobile products of $285.4 million was down 33 percent year-over-year. Mobile products revenue includes all touchscreen, display driver, and applicable fingerprint ID products.
  • Revenue from PC products totaled $38.5 million, a decrease of 27 percent year-over-year, and includes applicable fingerprint ID products.

Wajid Ali, CFO, added, “Considering our backlog of $183 million entering the typically back-end loaded September quarter, subsequent bookings, customer forecasts and product sell-in and sell-through timing patterns, and the resulting expected product mix, we anticipate revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 to be in the range of $350 to $390 million. We expect the revenue mix from mobile and PC products to be roughly similar to the preceding quarter.”

Cash at June 30, 2016 was $352 million. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, Synaptics used $116 million to repurchase approximately 5 percent of shares outstanding, bringing total share repurchases for fiscal 2016 to approximately 10 percent of shares outstanding entering the year. The company also announced that its board of directors has increased and extended the authorization for stock repurchases by another $100 million, bringing its remaining authorization to $233 million available through July 2018.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In evaluating its business, Synaptics considers and uses net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items as a supplemental measure of operating performance. Net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items is not a measurement of the company’s financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income. The company presents net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items because it considers it an important supplemental measure of its performance. The company believes this measure facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by eliminating potential differences in net income caused by the existence and timing of share-based compensation charges, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items. Net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration liability, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the company’s GAAP net income. The principal limitations of this measure are that it does not reflect the company’s actual expenses and may thus have the effect of inflating its net income and net income per share.
