SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 22, 2008 -- Silicon Image, Inc., a leader in semiconductors for the secure storage, distribution and presentation of high-definition content, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2008.
Revenue for the first quarter was $67.1 million, compared to $85.3 million for the fourth quarter ended Dec. 31, 2007 and $69.1 million for the first quarter of 2007. Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2007 included $6.7 million of product revenue from distributor sales during the month of December. Historically, the company deferred the recognition of sell-through revenue from distributor sales during the third month of a quarter until the following quarter due to the lack of information sufficient to recognize such revenue. As a result of improved business processes, the company was able to eliminate this delay in revenue recognition beginning in the fourth quarter of 2007. Therefore, 2007 fourth quarter revenue includes an additional month of product revenue from distributor sales in December.
GAAP net loss for the first quarter was $0.6 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to a GAAP net profit of $7.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2007 and $2.9 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2007.
Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter was $3.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to $9.5 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2007 and $6.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2007. Non-GAAP net income excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and the impact of the one-time change in distributor sell-through revenue in the fourth quarter of 2007.
A reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP items is provided in a table immediately following the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.
Pursuant to the company’s previously announced $100 million share repurchase program, on February 12, 2008, Silicon Image entered into an accelerated stock repurchase agreement (ASR), to purchase shares of common stock for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $62 million. As of March 31, 2008, Silicon Image received 11,538,462 shares. Silicon Image will receive additional shares on June 30, 2008, or an earlier accelerated completion date. To-date, the company has repurchased 16.5 million shares under the $100 million share repurchase program announced on February 8, 2007.
As previously announced on Feb. 7, 2008, the company’s Board of Directors has authorized an additional stock repurchase program for the repurchase, in the open market from time to time as business conditions warrant, of up to $100 million of the company's common stock over a three-year period commencing upon the completion of the aforementioned stock repurchase program. Purchases under this program may be increased, decreased or discontinued at any time without prior notice.
"Our financial results for the first quarter represent a solid start down the path of achieving our targeted financial goals for 2008,” said Steve Tirado, Silicon Image’s president and chief executive officer. “We are particularly pleased with our gross margin performance for the quarter at 58 percent of revenue.
