Commenting on the September quarterly results, Dr. Mike Chang, the chairman and CEO of the company, stated, “AOS achieved another outstanding quarter and reached several important milestones. Driven by new products across all market segments, the quarter’s revenue came in at the top of our guidance range at $104.9 million, establishing an all-time record. The favorable product mix contributed to the 10th consecutive quarter of gross margin expansion and a healthy bottom line. Reflecting increased confidence in AOS’s profitability and cash generation capability, our Board recently approved a $30 million share repurchase program, which underscores our commitment to enhance shareholder value. As we are consistently meeting near-term objectives, we are also investing in long-term initiatives, including the Chongqing joint venture formed in 2016 and our recently signed digital power controller license agreement with STMicroelectronics. We believe AOS is well positioned to capture great opportunities today and for many years to come.”

Business Outlook for Fiscal Q2 Ending December 31, 2017

The following statements are based on management's current expectations. These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially. AOS undertakes no obligation to update these statements.

  • Revenue is expected to be between $100 million and $104 million.

  • GAAP gross margin is expected to be 26.0% plus or minus 1%.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections of future performance based on management's judgment, beliefs, current trends, and anticipated product performance. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements relating to projected amount of revenue, gross margin, operating income (loss), income tax expenses, net income (loss), noncontrolling interest, and share-based compensation expenses, our ability and strategy to develop new products, including digital power controller products, the ability to expand our sales, maintain optimal capacity and achieve sustained growth and profitability, the ability of our repurchase program to enhance shareholder value, the success of Chongqing joint venture and other information under the section entitled “Business Outlook for Fiscal Q2 Ending December 31, 2017”. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, the decline of the PC industry and our ability to respond to such decline; difficulties and challenges in executing our diversification strategy into different market segments; ordering pattern from distributors and seasonality; our ability to introduce or develop new and enhanced products that achieve market acceptance, the actual product performance in volume production, the quality and reliability of our product, our ability to achieve design wins, the general business and economic conditions, the state of semiconductor industry and seasonality of our markets, our ability to maintain factory utilization at a desirable level, our ability to successfully operate our joint venture in China, and other risks as described in our SEC filings, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017 filed on September 5, 2017. Other unknown or unpredictable factors or underlying assumptions subsequently proving to be incorrect could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance, or achievements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. All information provided in this press release is as of today's date, unless otherwise stated, and AOS undertakes no duty to update such information, except as required under applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with U.S. GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating income (loss), net income (loss) and diluted earnings per share ("EPS"). These supplemental measures exclude share-based compensation expenses for all periods presented in this press release. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures can provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results. In addition, our management uses non-GAAP measures to compare our performance relative to forecasts and to benchmark our performance externally against competitors. Our use of non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations in that the non-GAAP financial measures we use may not be directly comparable to those reported by other companies. For example, the term used in this press release, non-GAAP net income (loss), does not have a standardized meaning. Other companies may use the same or similarly named measures, but exclude different items, which may not provide investors with a comparable view of our performance in relation to other companies. We seek to compensate for the limitation of our non-GAAP presentation by providing a detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures in the tables attached to this press release. Investors are encouraged to review the related U.S. GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.
