Silicon Image Updates Fourth Quarter Revenue Outlook

Silicon Image (NASDAQ: SIMG), a leading provider of HD connectivity solutions, today updated its revenue outlook for the quarter ending December 31, 2012.

Revenue for the fourth quarter is currently expected to be in the range of $59 million to $60 million. The Company's previous guidance for fourth quarter revenue was in the range of $64 million to $67 million. The reduction is the result of the rescheduling of certain orders by a large customer.

The Company also announced it has taken a charge to reflect the write down of certain unsalable inventory due to defects in the material used by one of our assembly vendors in the packaging process. All parts known to be defective have been identified and are within the Company’s control. The Company is working with its vendor to resolve this matter as well as to recover the value of the inventory being written off. The amount of this charge as of December 31, 2012 is approximately $6.3 million which will be included in cost of goods sold and represents a GAAP pre-tax per share charge of approximately $0.08 per diluted share for the quarter. This charge will be excluded from our non-GAAP results as we believe this is an unusual and one time charge for which the Company is seeking recovery.

“Our lowered revenue guidance for the fourth quarter is the result of changes in the timing of production schedules and the level of inventory management by one of our large customers. Our operating expenses will be lower than planned for the quarter due to continued cost controls as well as lower incentive pay as a result of the reduced financial performance. With respect to our inventory charge, we are working with our vendor to either replace the inventory or compensate the Company for its incurred costs,” said Camillo Martino, chief executive officer of Silicon Image. “As we enter the new year, we continue to expect our product revenues in the first quarter to be higher sequentially based on ordering patterns driven by the continued growth of MHL and an improved consumer electronics environment. We remain focused on enhancing shareholder value in 2013 through achieving our strategic and financial objectives for the year including significantly improving our profitability.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

Silicon Image presents and discusses gross margin, operating expenses, net income (loss) and basic and diluted net income (loss) per share in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), and on a non-GAAP basis for informational purposes only. Silicon Image believes that non-GAAP reporting provides meaningful information and therefore uses non-GAAP reporting to supplement its GAAP reporting and internally in evaluating operations, managing and monitoring performance, and determining bonus compensation. Further, Silicon Image uses non-GAAP information as certain non-cash charges such as amortization of intangibles, stock based compensation, restructuring charges, business acquisition related expenses and reversal of a subsidiary's foreign currency translation adjustment do not reflect the cash operating results of the business. Silicon Image has chosen to provide this supplemental information to investors, analysts and other interested parties to enable them to perform additional analyses of its operating results and to illustrate the results of operations giving effect to such non-GAAP adjustments. The non-GAAP financial information presented herein should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
