New Products and Higher iHigherhLicensing Drive Revenue Growth
Silicon Image’s revenue growth in the second quarter was driven primarily by increased product and licensing revenue associated with the expanding use of the High-Definition Multimedia Interface™ (HDMI™), particularly in consumer electronics. Silicon Image’s largest business, consumer electronics, accounted for approximately three-quarters of the company’s second quarter revenue and increased 27.3 percent over the same period one year ago and increased 25.2 percent compared with the prior quarter. Silicon Image’s products and licensed intellectual property are used in a variety of consumer electronics products, including digital still cameras, HD camcorders, audio/video receivers, DVD devices, including Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD devices, game consoles, set-top boxes and digital televisions.
“We experienced solid revenue growth and better-than-expected overall margin performance in the second quarter, both of which came in above our guidance range,” said Steve Tirado, Silicon Image’s president and chief executive officer. “During the June quarter, product sales in each of our three product groups increased sequentially. Within our largest product category, consumer electronics, we doubled sales of our HDMI 1.3 products, which included shipping the first million units of our recently introduced integrated input processors.”
Silicon Image’s Simplay HD program continued to gain momentum from major manufacturers, retailers and service providers. Consumer electronics and PC manufacturers have submitted more than 160 products to this program in order to verify compliance with the HDMI standard and to test compatibility of their products with other HDMI tested products.
“Our licensing revenues, were particularly strong in the first half of 2007 and we will be focusing on additional licensing opportunities in future quarters to boost overall gross margins and operating margins. We expect to introduce a new category of analog products into the market during the second half of 2007 that will provide new opportunities for future licensing revenue and improvements to overall operating margins,” said Tirado.
“Based upon our current visibility, we expect to see another quarter of double-digit growth in our unit demand. We also expect to see average selling price pressures begin to moderate given our expected product mix with a focus on product margin improvements in the second half of 2007. We believe that our second half 2007 product gross margin will experience a modest improvement relative to our second quarter 2007 product gross margin,” said Tirado.
Revenue for the third quarter is expected to range between $81 million and $87 million.
-- Revenue for the full fiscal year 2007 is expected to range between $305 million to $315 million; down from the company’s prior guidance range of $325 million to $345 million. The new guidance represents a revenue growth rate for the full year of 3 percent to 7 percent over Silicon Image’s 2006 GAAP revenue of $295.0 million and 6 percent to 9 percent over the company’s 2006 non-GAAP revenue of $287.9 million.
-- GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin is expected to range between 50 percent and 53 percent.
-- GAAP operating expenses are expected to range between $37 million to $39 million.
-- Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to range between $31 million to $33 million.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
Silicon Image reports gross profit, total and product gross margins, operating expenses, net income and basic and diluted net income per share in accordance with GAAP and supplementally 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. Silicon Image has chosen to provide this supplemental information to investors, analysts and other interested parties to enable them to perform additional analyses of our operating results and to illustrate the results of operations giving effect to such non-GAAP adjustments. For instance, management excludes the stock-based compensation expense when reviewing our cost of revenue and operating expenses because it is unrelated to our ongoing business operations, and because it does not consider this expense to be relevant to an assessment of our ongoing operations. 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.
