GAAP net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 were $1.213 billion, up 24.7% from GAAP net sales of $972.1 million in the prior year's first fiscal quarter.  GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was $35.7 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, down from GAAP net income of $170.6 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, in the prior year's first fiscal quarter.  The current year's GAAP net income results were significantly adversely impacted by purchase accounting adjustments associated with our Microsemi acquisition.

Non-GAAP net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 were $1.217 billion, up 25.2% from non-GAAP net sales of $972.1 million in the prior year's first fiscal quarter.  Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was $405.8 million, or $1.61 per diluted share, up 27.2% from non-GAAP net income of $319.1 million, or $1.31 per diluted share, in the prior year's first fiscal quarter.  For the first quarters of fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2018, our non-GAAP results exclude the effect of share-based compensation, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, inventory valuation costs, severance and other restructuring costs, and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions), non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures, adjustments for a manufacturing excursion issue with one of our suppliers, losses on the settlement of our convertible debentures, and losses on available-for-sale investments.  Due to our required adoption of the new revenue recognition standard on April 1, 2018 that results in revenue being recognized when the product is sold to our distribution customers, our non-GAAP adjustments include the effect of our distributors increasing or decreasing their inventory holdings in order to present a measure of the end market demand for our products.  For the first quarter of fiscal 2019, our non-GAAP income tax expense is presented based on projected cash taxes for fiscal 2019, excluding transition tax payments under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  For the first quarter of fiscal 2018, our non-GAAP income tax expense is presented in a manner that excludes the tax impact of non-GAAP adjustments calculated using the applicable tax rates in the jurisdictions where the adjustments occurred, tax adjustments in accordance with ASC 740-270, and one-time tax events.  A reconciliation of our non-GAAP and GAAP results is included in this press release.

Microchip announced today that its Board of Directors has declared a record quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of 36.40 cents per share.  The quarterly dividend is payable on September 4, 2018 to stockholders of record on August 21, 2018.

"Our June quarter financial results were strong," said Steve Sanghi, Chief Executive Officer.  "Our non-GAAP net sales came in above the mid-point of our guidance that we issued on May 31, 2018, resulting in record non-GAAP net income and earnings per share."

Mr. Sanghi added, "Since our acquisition of Microsemi Corporation on May 29, 2018, we have been actively engaged in further understanding the opportunities and challenges of this business.  While we have lots of work to do to achieve our long-term financial targets, we have high confidence in our team's ability to achieve these results over time."

"In the June 2018 quarter, our overall microcontroller net sales were $728.6 million, up 10.8% from the March 2018 quarter and our overall analog net sales were $328.5 million, up 35% from March 2018," said Ganesh Moorthy, President and Chief Operating Officer.  "Our microcontroller business excluding Microsemi, as well as our analog business excluding Microsemi, both set new records in the June quarter."

Mr. Moorthy added, "The integration of Microsemi with Microchip has been in high gear since we closed the acquisition.  We are moving thoughtfully and quickly to realize the synergies we had planned on, while continuing to identify incremental synergy opportunities working as a joint team."

Eric Bjornholt, Microchip's Chief Financial Officer, said, "Cash flow from operations was $302.4 million in the June 2018 quarter.  Over the next several years, we intend to use substantially all of our net cash generation, beyond our dividend payments, to de-leverage the balance sheet."

Mr. Sanghi added, "Beginning April 1, 2018, we adopted the new GAAP revenue recognition standard which requires us to recognize revenue at the time products are sold to distributors.  Prior to this change, revenue on such transactions were deferred until the product was sold by our distributor to an end customer.  We are not able to provide guidance on a GAAP basis as we are not able to predict whether inventory at our distributors will increase or decrease in relation to end-market demand.  As evidence of this uncertainty, in recent years, we have seen net inventory at our distributors increase or decrease by a significant amount in a single quarter.  Our non-GAAP revenue will be based on what we believe reflects true end-market demand as we measure revenue based on when product is sold by our distributors to an end customer."

Mr. Sanghi concluded, "Based on anticipated end-market demand, we expect our non-GAAP total net sales in the September 2018 quarter to be between $1.474 billion and $1.550 billion.  Our non-GAAP earnings per share are expected to be between $1.65 and $1.83."

4 Earnings per share has been calculated based on the diluted shares outstanding of Microchip on a consolidated basis.

  • Microchip's inventory days in the September 2018 quarter are expected to be in the range of 119 to 127 days of inventory.  Our actual inventory level will depend on the inventory that our distributors decide to hold to support their customers, overall demand for our products and our production levels.

  • Capital expenditures for the quarter ending September 30, 2018 are expected to be about $70 million .  Capital expenditures for all of fiscal 2019 are expected to be between $220 million and $250 million.  We are continuing to invest in the equipment needed to support the growth of our production capabilities for fast growing new products and technologies and to bring in-house more of the assembly and test operations that are currently outsourced.

1  Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:  Our non-GAAP adjustments, where applicable, include the effect of share-based compensation, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, inventory valuation costs, severance and other restructuring costs, and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions), non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures, adjustments for a manufacturing excursion issue with one of our suppliers, losses on the settlement of our convertible debentures, and losses on available-for-sale investments.  Due to our required adoption of the new revenue recognition standard on April 1, 2018, our non-GAAP adjustments include the effect of our distributors increasing or decreasing their inventory holdings.  For the first quarter of fiscal 2019, our non-GAAP income tax expense is presented based on projected cash taxes for fiscal 2019, excluding transition tax payments under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  For the first quarter of fiscal 2018, our non-GAAP income tax expense is presented in a manner that excludes the tax impact of non-GAAP adjustments calculated using the applicable tax rates in the jurisdictions where the adjustments occurred, tax adjustments in accordance with ASC 740-270, and one-time tax events.

Following our required adoption of the new revenue recognition standard effective April 1, 2018, our non-GAAP adjustments will include the effect of our distributors increasing or decreasing their inventory holdings.  Under the new GAAP revenue recognition standard, we are required to recognize revenue when control of the product changes from us to a customer or distributor.  We focus our sales and marketing efforts on creating demand for our products in the end markets we serve and not on moving inventory into our distribution network.  Therefore, the elements of our internal performance and executive and employee compensation metrics that are based on sales and operating results will be measured on a non-GAAP basis using the value of the end-market demand for our products.  We use non-GAAP net sales for these purposes because we do not believe that the underlying value of our business benefits from increases in the value of inventory that is held in the supply chain.  As many of our products are designed into customer applications with relatively long lives, such value is only realized when the end market demand is created and the supply chain sells the inventory to the end customer.  We believe the use of non-GAAP net sales is also important to investors and users of our financial statements as it reflects the final outcome of our sales activities whereas our GAAP net sales are based on estimates made earlier in (or before the end of) the process of creating and fulfilling demand is complete. We also manage our manufacturing and supply chain operations, including our distributor relationships, towards the goal of having our products available at the time and location the end customer desires. Therefore, we believe that it is useful to investors for us to disclose non-GAAP results that reflect the value of the end market demand for our products.  These non-GAAP results will include adjusting GAAP net sales, cost of sales, gross margin and EPS for the change in distributor inventory holdings.

We are required to estimate the cost of certain forms of share-based compensation, including employee stock options, restricted stock units and our employee stock purchase plan, and to record a commensurate expense in our income statement.  Share-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is affected by the price of our stock at the date of grant.  The price of our stock is affected by market forces that are difficult to predict and are not within the control of management.  Our other non-GAAP adjustments are either non-cash expenses, unusual or infrequent items or other expenses related to transactions.  Management excludes all of these items from its internal operating forecasts and models.

We are using non-GAAP net sales, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross profit percentage, non-GAAP operating expenses in dollars and as a percentage of sales including non-GAAP research and development expenses and non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP other expense, net, non-GAAP income tax rate, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share which exclude the items noted above, as applicable, to permit additional analysis of our performance.

Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they enhance the understanding of our historical financial performance and comparability between periods.  Many of our investors have requested that we disclose this non-GAAP information, including the effect of changes in distributor inventory holdings because they believe it is useful in understanding our performance as it excludes non-cash and other charges that many investors feel may obscure our underlying operating results and provides better information regarding end-market demand for our products.  Management uses these non-GAAP measures to manage and assess the profitability of our business and for compensation purposes.  We also use our non-GAAP results when developing  and monitoring our budgets and spending.  Our determination of the above non-GAAP measures might not be the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it should not be construed as a substitute for amounts determined in accordance with GAAP.  There are limitations associated with using non-GAAP measures, including that they exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance.  Management compensates for this by presenting information on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for investors and providing reconciliations of the GAAP and non-GAAP results.

2  Generally, gross margin fluctuates over time, driven primarily by the mix of microcontrollers, mixed-signal products, analog products and memory products sold and licensing revenue; variances in manufacturing yields; fixed cost absorption; wafer fab loading levels; costs of wafers from foundries; inventory reserves; pricing pressures in our non-proprietary product lines; and competitive and economic conditions.  Operating expenses fluctuate over time, primarily due to net sales and profit levels.

3  Diluted Common Shares Outstanding can vary for, among other things, the trading price of our common stock, the exercise of options or vesting of restricted stock units, the potential for incremental dilutive shares from our convertible debentures (additional information regarding our share count is available in the investor relations section of our website under the heading "Supplemental Financial Information"), and repurchases or issuances of shares of our common stock.  The diluted common shares outstanding presented in the guidance table above assumes an average Microchip stock price in the September 2018 quarter between $90 and $98 per share (however, we make no prediction as to what our actual share price will be for such period or any other period and we cannot estimate what our stock option exercise activity will be during the quarter).
