TAIPEI, Taiwan and MILPITAS, Calif., July 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silicon Motion Technology Corporation (NasdaqGS: SIMO) (“Silicon Motion” or the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.  For the second quarter, net sales (GAAP) increased to $98.8 million from $94.7 million in the first quarter 2019. Net income (GAAP) increased to $26.5 million or $0.75 per diluted ADS (GAAP) from $8.3 million or $0.23 per diluted ADS (GAAP) in the first quarter 2019.

For the second quarter, net sales (non-GAAP) increased to $94.3 million from $88.9 million in the first quarter 2019. Net income (non-GAAP) increased to $18.6 million or $0.52 per diluted ADS (non-GAAP) from $15.0 million or $0.42 per diluted ADS (non-GAAP) in the first quarter 2019.

Second Quarter 2019 Review
“Our controller sales continued to strengthen,” said Wallace Kou, President and CEO of Silicon Motion.  “Sales of both our SSD and eMMC+UFS controllers grew, with SSD controllers to our flash partners growing almost 30% sequentially, while to module makers was weaker than expected.  Sales of our eMMC+UFS controllers were stronger than expected, while sales of SSD solutions were worse.  Our gross margins, however, were better than expected due to more favorable mix of higher margin controllers.”

Returning Value to Shareholders
On October 29, 2018, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a $1.20 per ADS annual dividend to be paid in quarterly installments of $0.30 per ADS. On May 23, 2019, we paid $10.9 million to shareholders as the third installment of our annual dividend.

On November 21, 2018, the Company announced that our Board of Directors had authorized a new program for the Company to repurchase up to $200 million of our ADS over a 24 month period.  In the second quarter, we did not repurchase any of our ADSs and since the start of this program, we have repurchase $34.8 million of our ADSs.

Business Outlook
“We expect our revenues to continue growing quarter-after-quarter through the balance of this year.  We believe that full-year SSD controller shipments will grow strongly and in-line with market expectations, though revenue will likely be less than shipment growth because of less favorable product mix.  We believe our client SSD controller market share has continued to increase and that we are well positioned for continued SSD controller growth next year.  eMMC+UFS controller sales should continue growing sequentially through the second half of this year, though full-year sales will likely decline meaningfully.  Our Shannon open-channel SSDs are now in commercial deployment at our two B-A-T customers, important milestones, but full-year sales will be down sharply compared to last year.  Next year, we are expecting SSD solutions to rebound.”

For the third quarter of 2019, management expects:

  GAAP Non-GAAP Adjustment Non-GAAP
Revenue $104m to $108m -- $104m to $108m
  +5% to 9% Q/Q   +10% to 15% Q/Q
Gross margin 48.0% to 50.0% Approximately $0m 48.0% to 50.0%*
Operating margin 13.8% to 17.8%** Approximately $3m to $4m 17.3% to 20.3%***

* Excludes $0.1 million of stock-based compensation.
** Excludes yet to be determined Shannon goodwill and intangible assets impairment charges.
*** Excludes $0.3 million of amortization of intangible assets and $2.4 million to $3.4 million of stock-based compensation.

For the full-year 2019, management expects:

  GAAP Non-GAAP Adjustment Non-GAAP
Revenue $420m to $428m Approximately -$10m $410m to $418m*
  -21% to -19% Y/Y   -18% to -16% Y/Y
Gross margin 46.8% to 48.8% Approximately -$0m 47.9% to 49.9%**
Operating margin 11.4% to 15.0%*** Approximately $24m to $26m 17.6% to 20.6%****

* Excludes $10.4 million FCI results (January to May sales)
** Excludes $5.7 million of FCI results (gross profit), $5.0 million of Shannon inventory write-down and $0.3 million of stock-based compensation.
*** Excludes yet to be determined Shannon goodwill and intangible assets impairment charges.
**** Excludes $3.0 million of FCI results (operating profit), $5.0 million of Shannon inventory write-down, $1.0 million of amortization of intangible assets and $14.8 million to $16.8 million of stock-based compensation.

On May 15, 2019, we disclosed in our annual report filed on Form 20-F that we reduced our Shannon 2019 sales forecast meaningfully, which is a triggering event that will require us to reevaluate our Shannon reporting unit’s goodwill and intangible assets.  Further deterioration in Shannon’s operating performance since then has necessitated a $5.0 million inventory write-down in the second quarter, and we believe we will more than likely have to write-down a significant portion of the reporting unit’s $33.7 million of goodwill and intangible assets later this year.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company’s unaudited selected financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures that exclude discontinued operation, stock-based compensation and other items, including gross profit (non-GAAP), operating expenses (non-GAAP), operating profit (non-GAAP), net income (non-GAAP), and earnings per diluted ADS (non-GAAP). These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.  We believe that these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all the amounts associated with the Company’s results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.  The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measure.  We compensate for the limitations of our non-GAAP financial measures by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of our performance.

Our non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance the user’s overall understanding of our current financial performance and our prospects for the future. Specifically, we believe the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors as these non-GAAP results exclude certain revenue, expenses, gains and losses that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results and because they are consistent with the financial models and estimates published by many analysts who follow the Company.  We use non-GAAP measures to evaluate the operating performance of our business, for comparison with our forecasts, and for benchmarking our performance externally against our competitors.  Also, when evaluating potential acquisitions, we exclude the items described below from our consideration of the target’s performance and valuation.  Since we find these measures to be useful, we believe that our investors benefit from seeing the results from management’s perspective in addition to seeing our GAAP results.  We believe that these non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with the Company’s GAAP financials, provide useful information to investors by offering:

  • the ability to make more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s on-going operating results;
  • the ability to better identify trends in the Company’s underlying business and perform related trend analysis;
  • a better understanding of how management plans and measures the Company’s underlying business; and
  • an easier way to compare the Company’s operating results against analyst financial models and operating results of our competitors that supplement their GAAP results with non-GAAP financial measures.

The following are explanations of each of the adjustments that we incorporate into our non-GAAP measures, as well as the reasons for excluding each of these individual items in our reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures:

Stock-based compensation expense consists of non-cash charges related to the fair value of restricted stock units awarded to employees. The Company believes that the exclusion of these non-cash charges provides for more accurate comparisons of our operating results to our peer companies due to the varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types. In addition, the Company believes it is useful to investors to understand the specific impact of share-based compensation on its operating results.

Shannon inventory write-down is related to the deteriorating business outlook of our Shannon reporting unit and high likelihood that a large portion of the unit’s goodwill and intangible assets will need to be written down later in 2019.  Inventory write-down is necessary because a portion of our unit’s SSD and NAND flash inventory is not saleable and/or higher than fair market price.

Amortization of intangibles assets consists of non-cash charges that can be impacted by the timing and magnitude of our acquisitions.  The Company considers its operating results without these charges when evaluating its ongoing performance and forecasting its earnings trends, and therefore excludes such charges when presenting non-GAAP financial measures.  The Company believes that the assessment of its operations excluding these costs is relevant to its assessment of internal operations and comparisons to the performance of its competitors.

Litigation expenses consist of legal expenses relating to intellectual property disputes, commercial claims and other types of litigation. While litigation may arise in the ordinary course of our business, we nevertheless consider litigation to be an unusual and unplanned activity and therefore exclude this charge when presenting non-GAAP financial measures.

M&A transaction expenses consist of direct costs of transactions, such as legal and financial adviser fees. The Company does not undertake M&A transactions on a predictable cycle, so we excluded the effect of these costs in calculating our non-GAAP operating expenses and net income.

FCI results refers to operating results of our mobile communications product-line, the sale of which was announced on March 7, 2019 and closed on May 31, 2019.  Under GAAP, according to FASB ASU 2014-08, this disposal transaction does not meet the threshold for presenting as a discontinued operation.  We are excluding FCI from our financial results for non-GAAP as we believe this provides investors with enhanced transparency.  

Impairment of goodwill and intangible assets evaluates the recoverability of goodwill and intangible assets annually, or sooner if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable.

Foreign exchange gains and losses consist of translation gains and/or losses of non-US$ denominated current assets and current liabilities, as well as certain other balance sheet items which result from the appreciation or depreciation of non-US$ currencies against the US$. We do not use financial instruments to manage the impact on our operations from changes in foreign exchange rates, and because our operations are subject to fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, we therefore exclude foreign exchange gains and losses when presenting non-GAAP financial measures.

Gains on disposal of long-term investments relate to gains from our sale of FCI, our specialty RF IC product line, and sale of our investment in ProGrade, a professional-grade memory card manufacturer.

Gain and loss on equity-method investment consists of gain and/or loss related to our investment in a privately-held company, which varies depending on the operational and financial performance of the company in which we invested. We believe that providing non-GAAP measures excluding these charges, as well as the GAAP measures, assists our investors because such charges are not reflective of our ongoing operations.

Forward-looking statements also include, without limitation, statements regarding trends in the semiconductor or consumer electronics markets and our future results of operations, financial condition and business prospects.  In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential,” “continue,” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology.  Although such statements are based on our own information and information from other sources we believe to be reliable, you should not place undue reliance on them.  These statements involve risks and uncertainties, and actual market trends or our actual results of operations, financial condition or business prospects may differ materially from those expressed or implied in these forward looking statements for a variety of reasons.  Potential risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to the unpredictable volume and timing of customer orders, which are not fixed by contract but vary on a purchase order basis; the loss of one or more key customers or the significant reduction, postponement, rescheduling or cancellation of orders from these customers; general economic conditions or conditions in the semiconductor or consumer electronics markets; the effects on our business and our customer’s business taking into account the ongoing US-China tariffs and trade disputes; potential write-downs of our Shannon unit’s  goodwill and intangible assets; decreases in the overall average selling prices of our products; changes in the relative sales mix of our products; changes in our cost of finished goods; the payment, or non-payment, of cash dividends in the future at the discretion of our board of directors and any announced planned increases in such dividends; changes in our cost of finished goods; the availability, pricing, and timeliness of delivery of other components and raw materials used in our customers’ products; our customers’ sales outlook, purchasing patterns, and inventory adjustments based on consumer demands and general economic conditions; any potential impairment charges that may be incurred related to businesses previously acquired or divested in the future; our ability to successfully develop, introduce, and sell new or enhanced products in a timely manner; and the timing of new product announcements or introductions by us or by our competitors.
