PLANO, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD) today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Revenue was $288.7 million, an increase of 2.8 percent compared to $280.7 million in the first quarter 2020;
  • Gross profit was $101.5 million, an increase of 5.9 percent compared to $95.8 million in the first quarter 2020;
  • Gross profit margin increased 110 basis points to 35.2 percent from 34.1 percent in the first quarter 2020;

  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $28.6 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, as compared to $23.9 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, in the first quarter 2020;
  • Excluding $4.7 million, net of tax, of non-cash share-based compensation expense, both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share would have increased by $0.09 per diluted share;
  • EBITDA was $55.3 million, or 19.2 percent of revenue, compared to $52.9 million, or 18.9 percent of revenue, in the first quarter 2020; and
  • Achieved cash flow from operations of $33.1 million and $16.5 million free cash flow, including $16.5 million of capital expenditures. Net cash flow was a positive $283.7 million, which includes the initial draw-down of debt as a partial currency hedge associated with the anticipated close of the Lite-On acquisition later in the year.

Commenting on the results, Dr. Keh-Shew Lu, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Second quarter revenue was better than expected and increased 2.8% sequentially driven by market share gains across all key product groups due to improving demand and design win momentum. Additionally, our quarter benefitted from strong sequential and year-over-year growth in the consumer market for gaming consoles and IoT devices as well as the computing market as our Pericom IC products continued to gain traction in high-end servers, storage, data centers and notebooks as well as in automotive applications. In fact, our Pericom products achieved the second highest revenue quarter since the acquisition. Our solid results reflect our teams’ ability to maintain a high level of efficiency and productivity despite the market disruptions and delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our performance also serves as a testament to our diversified product portfolio and end markets as well as solid positioning with long-standing, tier-one customers.

Although the general market remains uncertain, we believe we’re well positioned to continue gaining market share in the third quarter and are forecasting another quarter of sequential growth. In support of this growth, we took the initiative to build internal inventory, which also provides a level of assurance to customers against possible supply disruptions and shifting demand requirements due to the global pandemic. It’s important to note that our distributor channel inventory was flat in the quarter and is expected to be within our targeted range in the third quarter.

In summary, I am proud of our consistent performance and financial results achieved during these unprecedented times. Our total solutions sales approach combined with our past design win momentum continue to pay dividends for our business as a trusted supplier of products to our customers.”

Second Quarter 2020

Revenue for second quarter 2020 was $288.7 million, compared to $280.7 million in the first quarter 2020 and $322.0 million in the second quarter 2019.

Included in second quarter 2020 GAAP net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income was approximately $4.7 million, net of tax, of non-cash share-based compensation expense. Excluding share-based compensation expense, both GAAP earnings per share (“EPS”) and non-GAAP adjusted EPS would have increased by $0.09 per diluted share for second quarter 2020, $0.07 for first quarter 2020 and $0.08 for second quarter 2019.

EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure), which represents earnings before net interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization, in the second quarter 2020 was $55.3 million, or 19.2 percent of revenue, compared to $52.9 million, or 18.9 percent of revenue, in the first quarter 2020 and $77.1 million, or 23.9 percent of revenue, in the second quarter 2019. For a reconciliation of GAAP net income to EBITDA, see the table near the end of this release for further details.

For second quarter 2020, net cash provided by operating activities was $33.1 million. Net cash flow was a positive $283.7 million, including a $200 million initial draw-down of debt as a partial currency hedge associated with the anticipated close of the Lite-On acquisition later in the year. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) was $16.5 million, which includes $16.5 million of capital expenditures.

Balance Sheet

As of June 30, 2020, the Company had approximately $507 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. Long-term debt (including the current portion) totaled approximately $295 million and working capital was approximately $801 million.

The results announced today are preliminary and unaudited, as they are subject to the Company finalizing its closing procedures and customary quarterly review by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. As such, these results are subject to revision until the Company files its Form 10-Q for the quarter ending June 30, 2020.

Business Outlook

Dr. Lu concluded, “For the third quarter of 2020, we expect revenue to increase to approximately $304 million, plus or minus 3 percent. We expect GAAP gross margin to be 35.5 percent, plus or minus 1 percent. Non-GAAP operating expenses, which are GAAP operating expenses adjusted for amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, are expected to be approximately 23.0 percent of revenue, plus or minus 1 percent. We expect non-GAAP net interest expense to be approximately $1.5 million. Our income tax rate is expected to be 18 percent, plus or minus 3 percent, and shares used to calculate diluted EPS for the third quarter are anticipated to be approximately 52.8 million.”

Purchase accounting adjustments related to amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets of $3.3 million, after tax, for Pericom and previous acquisitions is not included in these non-GAAP estimates. Also not included is $2.4 million of Lite-On acquisition-related financing costs.

ADJUSTED NET INCOME AND ADJUSTED EARNINGS PER SHARE

The Company’s financial statements present net income and earnings per share that are calculated using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). The Company’s management makes adjustments to the GAAP measures that it feels are necessary to allow investors and other readers of the Company’s financial releases to view the Company’s operating results as viewed by the Company’s management, board of directors and research analysts in the semiconductor industry. These non-GAAP measures are not prepared in accordance with, and should not be considered alternatives or necessarily superior 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 explanation of the adjustments made in the table above, are set forth below:

Detail of non-GAAP adjustments

Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assetsThe Company excluded this item, including amortization of developed technologies and customer relationships. The fair value of the acquisition-related intangible assets is amortized using straight-line methods which approximate the proportion of future cash flows estimated to be generated each period over the estimated useful life of the applicable assets. The Company believes that exclusion of this item is appropriate because a significant portion of the purchase price for its acquisitions was allocated to the intangible assets that have short lives and exclusion of the amortization expense allows comparisons of operating results that are consistent over time for both the Company’s newly acquired and long-held businesses. In addition, the Company excluded this item because there is significant variability and unpredictability among companies with respect to this expense.

Acquisition related financing costs The Company excluded expenses associated with a new credit facility and refinance of existing debt to prepare for the acquisition of Lite-On Semiconductor. The Company believes the exclusion of the acquisition related financing costs provides investors with a more accurate reflection of costs likely to be incurred in the absence of an unusual event such as an acquisition and facilitates comparisons with the results of other periods that may not reflect such costs.

Acquisition related costs The Company excluded expenses associated with the acquisition of Lite-On Semiconductor, which consisted of advisory, legal and other professional and consulting fees. These costs were expensed as they were incurred and as services were received, and in which the corresponding tax adjustments were made for the non-deductible portions of these expenses. The Company believes the exclusion of the acquisition related costs provides investors with a more accurate reflection of costs likely to be incurred in the absence of an unusual event such as an acquisition and facilitates comparisons with the results of other periods that may not reflect such costs.
