--Company Adopts New Strategic Framework to Focus on Power Management Expertise--

Milpitas, CA, July 30, 2013 - Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ Global Select: ISIL), a leading provider of innovative power management and precision analog solutions, today announced financial results for the second quarter that spanned 14 weeks and ended July 5, 2013.

Quarterly Highlights

  • Revenue of $144.8 million increased 10% sequentially
  • Gross margin increased to 55.2% on a GAAP-basis and to 55.4% on a non-GAAP basis
  • Operating income improved to 5% on a GAAP basis and 15.3% on a non-GAAP basis
  • GAAP EPS was $0.01 per share and non-GAAP EPS nearly doubled on both a year-on-year and sequential basis to $0.14

Revenue for the second quarter was $144.8 million, an increase of 10% sequentially and a decrease of 11% year over year. Intersil's industrial and infrastructure revenue grew quarter-on-quarter by more than 10%, due primarily to strong demand for products in automotive, industrial and aerospace markets. Consumer revenue recovered during the quarter, increasing 25% sequentially and reflecting improved demand for products sold into handsets, tablets and gaming consoles. Computing revenue was down as expected as PC market conditions remained challenging. The breakdown by end market was as follows:

Financial Results

On a GAAP basis, gross margin of 55.2% improved from 53.8% the previous quarter and from 54.5% the same period last year. Operating expenses declined to $72.6 million resulting in income from operations of $7.3 million or 5.0% for the quarter. Net income of $1.0 million represent $0.01 earnings per diluted share.

Non-GAAP gross margin rose to 55.4%, up from 54.1% in Q1 and 54.8% in Q2 of 2012. The sequential improvement was due primarily to the lower mix of computing revenue. Non-GAAP operating expenses decreased to $58.2 million, resulting in operating margin of 15.3% of revenue. Non-GAAP net income increased to $18.4 million or $0.14 per diluted share from $7.2 million or $0.06 per diluted share in the previous quarter. For a complete overview of the differences between GAAP and non-GAAP results, please see the tables included at the end of this release.

The balance sheet remained strong. Cash flow from operations was $24.7 million and contributed to cash and short-term investment balances of $161.7 million at the end of the quarter. Intersil's Board of Directors authorized payment of a quarterly dividend of $0.12 per share of common stock. The payment of this dividend will be made on August 30, 2013 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 20, 2013.

Business Assessment and Strategic Direction

Following the appointment of Necip Sayiner as president and CEO, Intersil conducted a comprehensive review of its product lines and resource investments.

"Our goal has been to identify areas where we have clearly differentiated core capabilities and significant growth prospects so that we can align our investments to capitalize on those opportunities," said Dr. Sayiner. "We have now established a strategic framework and implemented a set of immediate measures to redirect the company on a path to sustainable success."

Going forward the company will be leveraging its strong IP position and heritage to:

  • Expand its power management portfolio for the infrastructure and industrial markets, a significant growth opportunity characterized by longer life cycles and quality margins
  • Establish a meaningful presence in power management solutions for mobile devices by capitalizing on the increasingly complex power requirements of these applications
  • Build upon its leadership position in automotive infotainment and aerospace markets where Intersil's brand, capability and portfolio drive sustained value

In addition, Intersil announced a resource rebalancing initiative to better align the company's operating expenses with these strategic growth areas to improve competitiveness and execution across the business. The actions will shift more resources to product development, reducing expenses in manufacturing and sales operations as well as administrative functions.

"Greater discipline in how we apply our investment dollars, improved execution, and alignment of resources with where we can establish leading market share are all elements of our long-term success model," concluded Dr. Sayiner.
