Published on

Silicon Image, Inc. (NASDAQ:SIMG) , a leading provider of multimedia connectivity solutions and services, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year 2014.

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2014, ended December 31, 2014, was $66.6 million, compared with $70.3 million in the third quarter of 2014 and $61.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Full year 2014 revenue was $258.1 million compared to $276.4 million for full year 2013.

GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $30.8 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared with a GAAP net income of $10.3 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2014 and a GAAP net loss of $1.0 million, or ($0.01) per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2013. Full year 2014 GAAP net income was $42.1 million or $0.53 per diluted share compared to $11.5 million or $0.15 per diluted share for full year 2013.

During the fourth quarter of 2014, we concluded that the valuation allowance for certain of our U.S. federal and state deferred tax assets, with the exception of the deferred tax assets related to R&D credits and foreign tax credits, as well as our California deferred tax assets, is no longer required. Accordingly, we recognized a non-recurring, non-cash tax benefit of $30.1 million related to the valuation allowance reversal.

Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $6.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared with a non-GAAP net income of $8.8 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2014, and a non-GAAP net income of $4.1 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2013. Full year 2014 non-GAAP net income was $23.3 million or $0.29 per diluted share compared to $22.9 million or $0.29 per diluted share for full year 2013. Non-GAAP net income for these periods excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, business acquisition related expenses, gain from business acquisition, gain from sale of a privately held company investment, restructuring expense, other than temporary impairment of a privately-held company investment, impairment of intangible assets, recovery related to previously written-down inventory, proceeds from a legal settlement, other income from prepaid royalty settlement and non-cash tax benefit related to the valuation allowance reversal.

A reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP items is provided in a table following the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Lattice Semiconductor Tender Offer

On January 26, 2015, we signed a definitive agreement, pursuant to which Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:LSCC) will acquire Silicon Image in an all-cash tender offer of $7.30 per share. The transaction has been unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both companies and is expected to close by the end of March 2015. Closing of the tender offer is subject to customary closing conditions, including the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act and there being validly tendered and not withdrawn a number of shares of Silicon Image common stock equal to at least a majority of the total outstanding shares of Silicon Image common stock.

First Quarter 2015 Outlook and Conference Call

Due to the pending acquisition of Silicon Image by Lattice Semiconductor Corporation, Silicon Image will not provide guidance for the first quarter 2015 and has canceled its customary earnings conference call.

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, giving effect to the adjustments shown in the attached reconciliation, 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 stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, business acquisition related expenses, gain from business acquisition, gain from sale of a privately held company investment, restructuring expense, other than temporary impairment of a privately held company investment, impairment of intangible assets, recovery related to previously written-down inventory, proceeds from a legal settlement, other income from prepaid royalty settlement and non-cash tax benefit related to the valuation allowance reversal which do not reflect the cash operating results of the business. Silicon Image also excludes certain items that are unusual and one-time events such as business acquisition related expenses, gain from sale of a privately held company investment and proceeds from a legal settlement. 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.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(1)

Stock-Based Compensation Related Items: Stock-based compensation expense relates primarily to equity awards, such as stock options and restricted stock units. Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is dependent on market forces that are often beyond our control. As such, management excludes this item from our internal operating forecasts and models. Management believes that non-GAAP measures adjusted for stock-based compensation expense provide investors with a basis to measure our core performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by stock-based compensation expense as a result of the variety of equity awards used by companies and the varying methodologies and subjective assumptions used in determining such non-cash expense.

(2)

Strategic Initiative and Acquisition Related Items: We exclude certain expense items resulting from our strategic initiative and acquisitions including the following, when applicable: (i) amortization of purchased intangible assets associated with our acquisitions; or relating to our unconsolidated affiliate, (ii) strategic initiative and acquisition-related charges, (iii) gain from business acquisition and (iv) gain from sale of a privately held company investment. The amortization of purchased intangible assets associated with our acquisitions results in our recording expenses in our GAAP financial statements that were already expensed by the acquired company before the acquisition and for which we have not expended cash. Moreover, had we internally developed the products acquired, the amortization of intangible assets, and the expenses of uncompleted research and development would have been expensed in prior periods. Accordingly, we analyze the performance of our operations in each period without regard to such expenses. In addition, our strategic initiatives and acquisitions result in non-continuing operating expenses, which would not otherwise have been incurred by us in the normal course of our business operations. In the second quarter of fiscal 2014, we finalized the acquisition of the remaining ownership interest in UpdateLogic, Inc., resulting in acquisition-related charges and gain from business acquisition. In the third quarter of fiscal 2014, we finalized the sale of our minority interest in a privately held company to another entity resulting in a gain. We do not expect expenses of similar nature to be paid or gain of similar nature to be received in our normal course of business and consider it infrequent and non-recurring. We believe that providing non-GAAP information for strategic initiatives and acquisition-related expense items, gain from business acquisition and gain from sale of a privately held company investment in addition to the corresponding GAAP information allows the users of our financial statements to better review and understand the historic and current results of our continuing operations, and also facilitates comparisons to less acquisitive peer companies.

(3)

Other Items: We exclude certain other items that are the result of either unique or unplanned events including the following, when applicable: (i) restructuring and related costs, (ii) other than temporary impairment of a privately held company investment, (iii) impairment of intangible assets, (iv) recovery related to previously written-down inventory, (v) proceeds from a legal settlement and (vi) other income from prepaid royalty settlement. It is difficult to estimate the amount or timing of these items in advance. Restructuring charges result from events which arise from unforeseen circumstances, which often occur outside of the ordinary course of continuing operations. Other than temporary impairment of a privately held company investment was recorded due to the conclusion that the possibility is remote that we will exercise our warrants to purchase the entity’s preferred stock or that we will realize any other value from these investments. We recognized impairment of an intangible asset because the sum of its estimated future undiscounted cash flows used to test for recoverability is less than its carrying value. We entered into a settlement with a vendor and received a recovery related to previously written-down inventory. Proceeds from a legal settlement relates to our acquisition of SiBEAM, Inc. on May 16, 2011. Other income from prepaid royalty settlement relates to the termination of an HDMI rebate agreement with one of the HDMI adopters. We do not expect other income or proceeds of similar nature to be recognized or received in our normal course of business and consider it infrequent and non-recurring. Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financials, these unique transactions may limit the comparability of our on-going operations with prior and future periods. As such, we believe that these expenses do not accurately reflect the underlying performance of our continuing operations for the period in which they are incurred. We assess our operating performance both with these amounts included and excluded, and by providing this information, we believe the users of our financial statements are better able to understand the financial results of what we consider our continuing operations.

(4)

Tax adjustments: For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 and the three months ended September 30, 2014, our non-GAAP tax rate was approximately 30% of non-GAAP pre-tax income. Non-GAAP tax rate is primarily based on net expected cash flow for income taxes. During the fourth quarter of 2014, we recognized a non-recurring, non-cash tax benefit of $30.1 million related to the valuation allowance reversal.
