LOWELL, Mass., Jan. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:MTSI) ("M/A-COM"), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, today reported its financial results for the quarter ended December 28, 2012.

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 GAAP Results

  • Revenue was $75.0 million, compared to $74.6 million in the prior quarter;
  • Gross margin was 43.0 percent, compared to 42.3 percent in the prior quarter;
  • Operating margin was 15.7 percent, compared to 19.5 percent in the prior quarter;
  • Net income was $6.1 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to a net income of $17.0 million, or $0.36 per diluted share in the prior quarter; and
  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $92.6 million at December 28, 2012.

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Non-GAAP Results

  • Gross margin was 44.0 percent, compared to 43.9 percent in the prior quarter;
  • Operating margin was 18.4 percent, compared to 20.5 percent in the prior quarter; and
  • Net income was $9.7 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to net income of $10.4 million, or $0.22 per diluted share in the prior quarter.

Commenting on the results, John Croteau, President and Chief Executive Officer of M/A-COM, stated, "I am pleased to report that we achieved sequential and year-over-year revenue growth during our fiscal first quarter despite macroeconomic headwinds across our end markets. Additionally, we delivered gross margin and earnings per share results that were within our previously announced guidance range."

Mr. Croteau noted, "During the quarter, our Automotive sales continued to outperform, exceeding our original plans and prompting us to report it as a separate and fourth end market. These sales are accretive to corporate operating margins, and we expect them to remain stable and rewarding for years to come. The strength in Automotive was offset by our Networks and Aerospace & Defense markets, which were down sequentially primarily due to customers' year-end inventory management, especially in Asia. That said, current backlog for new Optoelectronics products will drive sequential growth in fiscal Q2, with continued momentum moving into the second half of the year."

Business Outlook

M/A-COM currently expects second quarter of fiscal 2013 revenue to range between $75 million and $80 million, non-GAAP gross margin between 44 and 45 percent, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share between $0.20 and $0.24, based on 48 million shares outstanding.

Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements based on M/A-COM management's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Forward-looking statements include, among others, information concerning our business outlook and future results of operations, our future expectations for our Automotive business and Optoelectronics products, and any statements regarding future trends, business strategies, competitive position, industry conditions and market opportunities. Forward-looking statements include all statements that are not historical facts and generally may be identified by terms such as "anticipates," "believes," "could," "estimates," "expects," "intends," "may," "plans," "potential," "predicts," "projects," "seeks," "should," "will," "would" or similar expressions and the negatives of those terms.

Forward-looking statements contained in this press release reflect M/A-COM's current views about future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions and changes in circumstances that may cause those events or our actual activities or results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statement. Although

M/A-COM believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, it cannot and does not guarantee future events, results, actions, levels of activity, performance or achievements. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements, including, among others, the potential for continued weakness in our Networks market, lower than expected demand in our Automotive market or any or all of our primary markets or from any of our large OEM customers based on macro-economic weakness or otherwise, the potential for a shift in the mix of products sold in any period toward lower-margin products or a shift in the geographical mix of our revenues, the relative success of our cost-savings initiatives, the potential for inventory obsolescence and related write-offs, the potential for defense spending cuts, program cancellations or sequestration, lower than expected utilization and absorption in our manufacturing facilities, lack of success or slower than expected success in our new product development efforts, loss of business due to competitive factors, obsolescence, customer program shifts or otherwise, lower than anticipated or slower than expected customer acceptance of our new product introductions, the potential for increased pricing pressure based on competitive factors, technology shifts or otherwise, the impact of any acquisition, divestiture or restructuring activity, the impact of supply shortages or other disruptions in our internal or outsourced supply chain, the impact of any current or future litigation instituted by or against us, and the impact of any claims of intellectual property infringement or misappropriation, which could require us to pay substantial damages for infringement, expend significant resources in prosecuting or defending such matters or developing non-infringing technology, incur material liability for royalty or license payments, or prevent us from selling certain of our products, as well as those factors described in "Risk Factors" in M/A-COM's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 28, 2012 as filed with the SEC on November 28, 2012. M/A-COM undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to GAAP reporting, M/A-COM provides investors with non-GAAP financial reporting, including gross margin, operating margin, net income and other data calculated on a non-GAAP basis. This non-GAAP information excludes amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, share-based and other non-cash compensation expense, restructuring charges, Optomai litigation costs, changes in the carrying values of liabilities measured at fair value, other non-cash expenses and certain income tax items. In addition, certain cash flow activities are reported on a non-GAAP basis. Management does not believe that the excluded items are reflective of M/A-COM's underlying performance. The exclusion of these and other similar items from M/A-COM's non-GAAP presentation should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual. M/A-COM believes this non-GAAP financial information provides additional insight into M/A-COM's on-going performance and has therefore chosen to provide this information to investors for a more consistent basis of comparison and to help them evaluate the results of M/A-COM's on-going operations and enable more meaningful period to period comparisons. These non-GAAP measures are provided in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial data is included in the supplemental financial data attached to this press release.
