MACOM Reports Revenue of $114.9 Million With EPS $0.38 and Gross Margin of 53.7 Percent (Non-GAAP)

LOWELL, Mass., Feb. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:MTSI) ("MACOM"), a leading supplier of high-performance analog RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic semiconductor products, today announced financial results for its fiscal first quarter ended January 2, 2015.

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2015 GAAP Results

Inclusive in the GAAP results is a change in estimate related to MACOM's distribution revenue recognition, the net effect of which was a one-time increase of $15.1 million in revenue, and a reduction in net loss of $8.5 million and a reduction of EPS loss per share of $0.18, as detailed in our Form 10-Q filed today.

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2015 Non-GAAP Results

John Croteau, Chief Executive Officer of MACOM stated, "Revenue including BinOptics came in at $114.9 million, Non-GAAP gross margin was 53.7 percent, with EPS of 38 cents. Similar to last quarter, non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP EPS benefited from a favorable mix in sales weighted toward higher-margin products."

Mr. Croteau continued, "During the quarter, similar to our peers, we saw broad-based seasonal softness across many of our end markets. One notable exception was our 100G Optical business, which grew 35% sequentially excluding the contribution of BinOptics' stub quarter."

Business Outlook

For the fiscal quarter ending April 3, 2015, MACOM expects another quarter of solid execution with revenue expected to be in the range of $120 to $124 million. Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be between 51 and 54 percent, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share between 39 and 42 cents based on 50 million shares outstanding.

Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements based on MACOM management's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Forward-looking statements include, among others, information concerning our stated business outlook and future results of operations, and any statements regarding future trends, business strategies, competitive position, industry conditions, acquisitions 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 MACOM'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 MACOM 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 greater than expected dilutive effect on earnings of our outstanding indebtedness and related interest expense and other costs, lower than expected demand in any or all of our four primary end markets or from any of our large OEM customers based on seasonal effects, macro-economic weakness or otherwise, our failure to realize the expected economies of scale, lowered production cost and other anticipated benefits of our previously announced GaN intellectual property licensing program, the potential for defense spending cuts, program delays, cancellations or sequestration, failures or delays by any customer in winning business or to make purchases from us in support of such business, lack of adoption or delayed adoption by customers and industries we serve of GaN, InP lasers or other solutions offered by us, failures or delays in porting and qualifying GaN or InP process technology to our Lowell, MA fabrication facility or third party facilities, lower than expected utilization and absorption in our manufacturing facilities, lack of success or slower than expected success in our new product development or InP laser production capacity expansion efforts, loss of business due to competitive factors, product or technology obsolescence, customer program shifts or otherwise, lower than anticipated or slower than expected customer acceptance of our new product introductions, 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 potential for increased pricing pressure based on competitive factors, technology shifts or otherwise, the impact of any executed or abandoned acquisition, divestiture, financing or restructuring activity, the impact of supply shortages or other disruptions in our internal or outsourced supply chain, the relative success of our cost-savings initiatives, the potential for inventory obsolescence and related write-offs, the expense, business disruption or other impact of any current or future investigations, administrative actions, litigation or enforcement proceedings we may be involved in, the potential loss of access to any in-licensed intellectual property or inability to license technology we may require on reasonable terms, 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 MACOM's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 3, 2014 as filed with the SEC on December 9, 2014. MACOM 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, MACOM provides investors with non-GAAP financial information, including revenue, gross margin, operating margin, operating income, net income, earnings per share, EBITDA and other data calculated on a non-GAAP basis. This non-GAAP information excludes the operations of Nitronex prior to the date of acquisition, discontinued operations, the impact of fair value accounting in merger and acquisitions (M&A) of businesses, M&A costs, including acquisition and related integration costs, certain cost savings from synergies expected from M&A activities, income and expenses from transition services related to M&A activities, expected amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, share-based and other non-cash compensation expense, certain cash compensation, restructuring charges, litigation settlement and costs, changes in the carrying values of liabilities measured at fair value, contingent consideration, amortization of debt discounts and issuance costs, other non-cash expenses, earn-out costs, exited leased facility costs and certain income tax items. Management does not believe that the excluded items are reflective of MACOM's underlying performance. The exclusion of these and other similar items from MACOM's non-GAAP presentation should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual. These and other similar items are also excluded from EBITDA, which is non-GAAP earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. MACOM believes this non-GAAP financial information provides additional insight into MACOM's on-going performance and has, therefore, chosen to provide this information to investors for a consistent basis of comparison and to help them evaluate the results of MACOM'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.
