IDT Reports Q4 and Fiscal Year 2014 Financial Results [Manufacturing Close - Up]

(Manufacturing Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT), the Analog and Digital Company delivering mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, announced results for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 30.

"We concluded fiscal year 2014 on a high note with strong Q4 revenue, non-GAAP operating margin and earnings per share," said Greg Waters, president and chief executive officer. "The strength in revenues for the fourth fiscal quarter was primarily driven by sales in our Communications end market as the build-out of global 4G/LTE infrastructure accelerated. Non-GAAP gross margin was slightly impacted by inventory reserves associated with our previous fab closure transition and product mix. However, with our continued focus on expense control, we exceeded our guidance for non-GAAP operating margins and non-GAAP EPS, delivering 19.5 percent and $0.14 per fully diluted share, respectively." "We have successfully transformed IDT into a company that generates earnings power as our revenue continues to grow, all supported by a very strong balance sheet. We are investing in high- growth markets and believe we can grow market share in all of our target market segments through the course of this fiscal year," concluded Waters.

In a release on May 5, the Company noted recent business highlights: -Nominated for four ACE awards, presented by UBM Tech's EE Times and EDN publications, IDT won top prize in the "Ultimate Products" category for its third generation Universal Frequency Translator (UFT) clocking family. The three other nominations were for the Timing Commander software, an RF-PLL and DDR4 data buffer.

-IDT announced the mass production of its JEDEC 1.0-compliant DDR4 chipset-already validated by Intel to meet the requirements of the future Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 product family--for use in RDIMMs and LRDIMMs.

-IDT extended its leadership in the timing market with the VersaClock 5 family of programmable clock generators, the best-in- class, complete clock tree solution for cost-sensitive, low-power consumer and low-jitter communication timing applications.

-IDT introduced the industry's first Ethernet and IEEE 1588 timing devices optimized for smart grid and industrial automation applications. The new low-jitter timing products improve the accuracy and reliability of IEEE 1588 time transport and offer important flexibility with an integrated Ethernet digital PLL (DPLL) and digitally-controlled oscillator (DCO) in a single chip.

-IDT announced a new family of ultra-compact wireless power receivers offering a board area footprint reduction up to 70 percent compared to switching regulator-based solutions. The latest Wireless Power Consortium's (WPC) and Power Matter's Alliance (PMA)- compliant devices expand IDT's industry-leading wireless power portfolio to address densely populated, cost-sensitive portable applications.

-IDT introduced the industry's first dual-mode wireless power receiver compatible with both the WPC 1.1 standard, as well as the PMA 1.1 standard. The innovative solution enables OEMs to use a single wireless power receiver IC to develop mobile devices fully compatible with the latest versions of both Qi and PMA charging bases.

The following highlights the Company's financial performance on both a GAAP and supplemental non-GAAP basis. The company is pursuing the divestiture of its high speed data converter business and is in active discussions with potential buyers. For financial statement purposes, the high speed data converter business is classified as assets held for sale and is treated as discontinued operations for all periods presented. IDT has excluded results from the high speed data converter business from current and historical non-GAAP results. The Company provides supplemental information regarding its operating performance on a non-GAAP basis that excludes certain gains, losses and charges which occur relatively infrequently and which management considers to be outside our core operating results. Non-GAAP results are not in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to non-GAAP information provided by other companies. Non- GAAP information should be considered a supplement to, and not a substitute for, financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

-Revenue from continuing operations for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2014 was $118.6 million, compared with $107.8 million reported in the same period one year ago.

-GAAP net income from continuing operations for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2014 was $5.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, versus a GAAP net loss from continuing operations of $5.5 million or a loss of $0.04 per share in the same period one year ago. Fiscal fourth quarter 2014 GAAP results include a $14.5 million loss relating to amortization and impairment of intangible assets and other acquisition/divestiture related charges, $2.4 million in stock- based compensation expense, $1.1 million in restructuring related charges, and $1.3 million expense from related tax effects.

-Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2014 was $22.1 million or $0.14 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $4.9 million or $0.03 per diluted share recently reported in the same period one year ago.

-GAAP gross profit from continuing operations for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2014 was $61.1 million, or 51.5 percent, compared with GAAP gross profit of $59.5 million, or 55.2 percent, reported in the same period one year ago.

Non-GAAP R&D expense for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2014 was $28.4 million, compared with non-GAAP R&D of $35.0 million in the same period one year ago.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
