MaxLinear, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

CARLSBAD, Calif., Aug. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a provider of integrated, radio-frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Management Commentary

"We are pleased to announce record revenue of $29.8 million in the second quarter, which represents a growth of 22 percent year-over-year and 12 percent sequentially," commented Kishore Seendripu, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO. "We are particularly encouraged by the breadth of our growth drivers in the second quarter, as evidenced by the double digit year-over-year revenue growth derived from our Cable and Terrestrial solutions. Our growth continues to be derived from our market leading positions in some of the most exciting and dynamic broadband front-end applications, such as cable DOCSIS 3.0 data modems, media server gateways, hybrid TV's, and set-top boxes. In the second quarter, we were not only able to generate cash flow from operations and scale revenue from our legacy markets, but we also made solid progress toward opening up new market applications, such as Satellite TV, for our industry leading broadband RF receiver solutions. "

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) Results

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was $29.8 million, an increase of 12 percent compared to the first quarter of 2013, and an increase of 22 percent compared to the second quarter of 2012. Gross profit in the second quarter of 2013 was 58 percent of revenue, compared to 63 percent in the first quarter of 2013, and 62 percent in the second quarter of 2012. In the second quarter of 2013, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $1.1 million, reflected in cost of net revenue, related to the remaining net book value of production masks that were previously capitalized, but for which future use is no longer expected.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2013 was $2.9 million, or $0.09 per share (diluted), compared with net losses of $2.3 million, or $0.07 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of 2013, and $2.6 million, or $0.08 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of 2012.

Cash flow provided by operations for the second quarter of 2013 totaled $6.2 million, compared with $0.8 million for the first quarter of 2013, and $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2012.

Cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $81.3 million at June 30, 2013, compared to $77.3 million at March 31, 2013, and $84.3 million at June 30, 2012.

Non-GAAP Results

Non-GAAP gross profit in the second quarter of 2013 was 62 percent of revenue, compared to 63 percent in the first quarter of 2013, and 62 percent in the second quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2013 was $3.8 million, or $0.11 per share (diluted), compared with $2.5 million, or $0.07 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of 2013, and $1.8 million, or $0.05 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of 2012.

Cautionary Note Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Forward-looking statements include, among others, statements concerning our future financial performance (including our current forecast for third quarter 2013 revenue) and trends and growth opportunities in specific product markets such as cable and satellite applications, and opportunities associated with new product offerings and our strategy to expand our addressable market. These forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause actual results to be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on management's current, preliminary expectations and are subject to various risks and uncertainties. Risks and uncertainties affecting our business, operating results, and stock price, include, among others, intense competition in our industry; our dependence on a limited number of customers for a substantial portion of our revenues; uncertainties concerning how end user markets for our products will develop, including end user markets for the cable and satellite applications of our products as well as end user markets for products currently in development; our ability to develop and introduce new and enhanced products on a timely basis and achieve market acceptance of those products, particularly as we seek to expand outside of our historic markets; potential decreases in average selling prices for our products; limited trading volumes; intellectual property risks, including risks arising from our continuing intellectual property litigation with Silicon Laboratories; our reliance on a limited number of third party manufacturers; and our lack of long-term supply contracts and dependence on limited sources of supply. In addition to these risks and uncertainties, investors should review the risks and uncertainties contained in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Additional risks, uncertainties, and other information will be contained in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, which MaxLinear expects to file with the SEC in August 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net income (loss), income (loss) from operations, gross profit, and earnings (loss) per share. These supplemental measures exclude the effects of (i) stock-based compensation expense and its related tax effect, if any; (ii) an accrual related to our performance based bonus plan for 2013, which if achieved we currently expect to settle in stock in 2014; (iii) an accrual related to our performance based bonus plan for 2012, which was settled in stock in May 2013; (iv) expenses associated with our acquisition of certain new market related technology licenses; (v) impairment of production masks and (vi) estimated fines and penalties and professional fees related to our previously disclosed export compliance and IP litigation matters. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with and do not serve as an alternative for GAAP. We believe that these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our GAAP results of operations. These non-GAAP measures should only be viewed in conjunction with corresponding GAAP measures. We compensate for the limitations of non-GAAP financial measures by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of our performance.

We believe that non-GAAP financial measures can provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain non-cash and other one-time expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results. Among other uses, our management uses non-GAAP measures to compare our performance relative to forecasts and strategic plans and to benchmark our performance externally against competitors. In addition, management's incentive compensation will be determined in part using these non-GAAP measures because we believe non-GAAP measures better reflect our core operating performance.

The following are explanations of each type of adjustment that we incorporate into non-GAAP financial measures:

Stock-based compensation expense relates to equity incentive awards granted to our employees, directors, and consultants. Our equity incentive plans are important components of our employee incentive compensation arrangements and are reflected as expenses in our GAAP results. Stock-based compensation expense has been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense for MaxLinear. In addition, we exclude the related tax effect of stock-based compensation expense, if any, from non-GAAP net income.

Bonus payments under our executive and non-executive bonus programs have been excluded from our non-GAAP net income for 2012 and 2013. Bonus payments for the 2012 performance period were settled through the issuance of shares of Class A common stock under our equity incentive plans in May 2013, and we currently expect that any bonus payments under our 2013 programs will also be settled in stock. While we include the dilutive impact of equity awards in weighted average shares outstanding, the expense associated with stock-based awards reflects a non-cash charge that we exclude from non-GAAP net income.

Expenses incurred in relation to the purchase of certain new market related technology licenses, intellectual property litigation and estimated fines and penalties and professional fees related to export compliance matters are unrelated to our underlying business. Therefore, we do not believe these are indicative of our core operating performance and exclude these expenses in management evaluations of our business.

Expenses incurred in relation to our export compliance review include (i) charges relating to estimates of potential export compliance fines and penalties, and (ii) professional fees incurred as a result of our audit committee's review and the final voluntary disclosures submitted to governmental agencies.

Expenses incurred in relation to impairment of production masks reflect costs that were previously capitalized but for which future use is no longer expected.

Expenses incurred in relation to our intellectual property litigation with Silicon Laboratories include professional fees incurred.

Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures disclosed in this press release appear below.
