SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ:MXIM) reported net revenue of $638 million for its first quarter of fiscal 2019 ended September 29, 2018, a 1% increase from the $633 million revenue recorded in the prior quarter, and an 11% increase from the same quarter of last year.

Tunc Doluca, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our September quarter results were solid. Compared to the same quarter last year, revenue and profitability grew strongly, driven by Automotive, Consumer, Industrial and Data Center.  Looking forward, we are seeing softening business conditions. However, we believe our business model enables us to be successful in any environment. Due to our strong free cash flow and positive net cash balance, we plan to return 125 percent of free cash flow to shareholders this fiscal year, by increasing the share buyback. We believe buying our shares is the best use of our cash in the current environment."

Fiscal Year 2019 First Quarter Results
Based on Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), diluted earnings per share in the September quarter was $0.70. The results were affected by $8 million in pre-tax special items which primarily consisted of charges related to acquisitions. GAAP earnings per share, excluding special items was $0.75. An analysis of GAAP versus GAAP excluding special items is provided in the last table of this press release.

Cash Flow Items
At the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2019, total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $2.56 billion, a decrease of $63 million from the prior quarter.

Notable items included:

  • Cash flow from operations: $207 million
  • Capital expenditures: $18 million
  • Dividends paid: $128 million ($0.46 per share)
  • Stock repurchases: $112 million

Adjusted trailing twelve months free cash flow was $915 million, which excludes a one-time tax payment of $178 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure and is defined by cash flow from operations less capital expenditures.

Business Outlook
The Company's 90-day backlog at the beginning of the December 2018 quarter was $418 million. Based on the beginning backlog and expected turns, our results for the December 2018 quarter are forecasted to be as follows:

  • Revenue: $570 to $610 million
  • Gross Margin: 65% to 67% GAAP (66% to 68% excluding special items)
  • EPS: $0.55 to $0.61 GAAP ($0.59 to $0.65 excluding special items)

Maxim Integrated's business outlook does not include the potential impact of any special items related to restructuring activity, acquisitions, or other business combinations that may be completed during the quarter.

Share Repurchases and Dividends
Increasing capital return to 125% of free cash flow in fiscal 2019 through additional share repurchases. Our Board of Directors approved a new $1.5 billion share repurchase authorization.

A cash dividend of $0.46 per share will be paid on December 13, 2018, to stockholders of record on November 29, 2018.

Non-GAAP Measures
To supplement the consolidated financial results prepared under GAAP, Maxim Integrated uses non-GAAP measures which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP results to exclude special items related to intangible asset amortization; impairment of long-lived assets; severance and restructuring; other operating expenses (income), net; interest and other expense (income), net; and other income tax effects and adjustments. We defined free cash flow as net cash provided from operations less gross capital expenditures. Management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and evaluate Maxim Integrated's current performance. Many analysts covering Maxim Integrated use the non-GAAP measures as well. Given management's use of these non-GAAP measures, Maxim Integrated believes these measures are important to investors in understanding Maxim Integrated's current and future operating results as seen through the eyes of management. In addition, management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in enabling them to better assess changes in Maxim Integrated's core business across different time periods. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP financial data and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures, even if they have similar names. The non-GAAP measures displayed in the table above include the following:

GAAP Gross Profit Excluding Special Items
The use of GAAP gross profit excluding special items allows management to evaluate the gross margin of the Company's core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of special items including intangible asset amortization. In addition, it is an important component of management's internal performance measurement and reward process as it is used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets and forecasting future results. Management presents GAAP gross profit excluding special items to enable investors and analysts to evaluate our revenue generation performance relative to the direct costs of revenue of Maxim Integrated's core businesses.

GAAP Operating Expenses Excluding Special Items
The use of GAAP operating expenses excluding special items allows management to evaluate the operating expenses of the Company's core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of special items including intangible asset amortization; impairment of long-lived assets; severance and restructuring, and other operating expenses (income), net. In addition, it is an important component of management's internal performance measurement and reward process as it is used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets and forecasting future results. Management presents GAAP operating expenses excluding special items to enable investors and analysts to evaluate our core business and its direct operating expenses.

GAAP Provision for Income Taxes Excluding Special Items
The use of a GAAP provision for income taxes excluding special items allows management to evaluate the provision for income taxes across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of special items including the tax provision impact of pre-tax special items. In fiscal year 2016, we began using a long-term tax rate to compute the GAAP provision for income taxes excluding special items. We reviewed the long-term tax rate on an annual basis and more frequently whenever events occurred that may have materially affected the long-term tax rate such as tax law changes; significant changes in our geographic earnings mix; or changes in our corporate structure. This long-term tax rate considered the income tax impact of pre-tax special items and eliminated the effects of significant non-recurring and period specific tax items which varied in size and frequency, including certain one-time tax charges resulting from U.S. tax legislation that was enacted on December 22, 2017. In the first quarter of fiscal year 2018, we began using a long-term tax rate of 14%, which was our forecast of the weighted average of our normalized fiscal year GAAP tax rate excluding special items over a four-year period, that included the past three fiscal years plus the current fiscal year projection at the beginning of fiscal year 2018. In the third quarter of fiscal year 2018, we modified our approach and began using a 12% tax rate for fiscal year 2018.  Because of the impacts of tax reform, a long-term average tax rate was no longer appropriate for the remainder of fiscal year 2018.  The tax rate of 12% best reflected the tax rate excluding special items for fiscal year 2018 as a single year.  Maxim will use a tax rate of 13% for fiscal year 2019, which best reflects the tax rate excluding special items for fiscal year 2019 as a single year.  Maxim will review the fiscal year 2019 tax rate whenever events occur that may have a material impact on the 13% tax rate, including tax law changes; new guidance interpreting existing U.S. and foreign tax laws; significant changes in our geographic earnings mix; or changes in our corporate structure.

GAAP Net Income and GAAP Net Income per Share Excluding Special Items
The use of GAAP net income and GAAP net income per share excluding special items allow management to evaluate the operating results of Maxim Integrated's core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of special items including intangible asset amortization; impairment of long-lived assets; severance and restructuring; other operating expenses (income), net; interest and other expense (income), net; and other income tax effects and adjustments. In addition, they are important components of management's internal performance measurement and reward process as it is used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets and forecasting future results. Management presents GAAP net income and GAAP net income per share excluding special items to enable investors and analysts to understand the results of operations of Maxim Integrated's core businesses and to compare our results of operations on a more consistent basis against that of other companies in our industry.
