SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synaptics Incorporated (Nasdaq: SYNA ), today reported financial results for its fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 ended June 25, 2022.

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $476.4 million. GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $82.9 million, or $2.04 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was a record $157.0 million, or $3.87 per diluted share.

For the full year fiscal 2022, net revenue of $1.74 billion was up 30 percent compared to the prior year of $1.34 billion. Gross margin for the Company's products continued to expand with GAAP gross margin for fiscal 2022 of 54.2 percent compared to 45.6 percent in the prior year; and non-GAAP gross margin of 60.0 percent compared to 53.6 percent in the prior year. GAAP net income for the recently completed fiscal year was $257.5 million or $6.33 per diluted share compared to the prior year of $79.6 million or $2.08 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the recently completed fiscal year was $551.2 million or $13.54 per diluted share compared to the prior year of $316.4 million or $8.26 per diluted share.

“Synaptics had a terrific fiscal 2022, recording company records for revenue, gross margins, non-GAAP operating margin, EPS, and cash flow, and made significant progress in our strategy to enter high-value markets and diversify the customer base. Our IoT product applications grew 80 percent in the fiscal year and accounted for 63 percent of revenue. While there is increased economic uncertainty, our plan is to continue to invest in our businesses. Our product pipeline and design win momentum continue on an upward trajectory, particular in IoT markets,” said Michael Hurlston, Synaptics' President and CEO.

Business Outlook
Dean Butler, Chief Financial Officer of Synaptics, added,“For our first quarter of fiscal 2023 we expect IoT to continue to grow on a year-over-year basis, partially offsetting anticipated declines in our Mobile and PC products. Our guide reflects the signs we are seeing of a more cautious customer base in applications closest to the consumer. Our aggregate backlog remains healthy, and we expect to maintain near record high gross margins into the September quarter.”

For the first quarter of fiscal 2023, the company expects:

GAAP Non-GAAP Adjustment Non-GAAP

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In evaluating its business, Synaptics considers and uses Non-GAAP Net Income, which we define as net income excluding share-based compensation, acquisition related costs, and certain other non-cash or recurring and non-recurring items the company does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance as a supplemental measure of operating performance. Non-GAAP Net Income is not a measurement of the company's financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income. The company presents Non-GAAP Net Income because it considers it an important supplemental measure of its performance since it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by eliminating potential differences in net income caused by the existence and timing of share-based compensation charges, acquisition related costs, and certain other non-cash or recurring and non-recurring items. Non-GAAP Net Income has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the company's GAAP net income. The principal limitations of this measure are that it does not reflect the company's actual expenses and may thus have the effect of inflating its net income and net income per share as compared to its operating results reported under GAAP. In addition, the company presents components of Non-GAAP Net Income, such as Non-GAAP Gross Margin, Non-GAAP operating expenses and Non-GAAP operating margin, for similar reasons.

As presented in the“Reconciliation of GAAP Financial Measures to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” tables that follow, Non-GAAP Net Income and each of the other Non-GAAP financial measures excludes one or more of the following items:

Acquisition related costs
Acquisition related costs primarily consist of:

  • amortization of purchased intangibles, which includes acquired intangibles such as developed technology, customer relationships, trademarks, backlog, licensed technology, patents, and in-process technology when post-acquisition development is determined to be substantively complete;
  • inventory adjustments affecting the carrying value of inventory acquired in an acquisition;
  • transitory post-acquisition incentive programs negotiated in connection with an acquired business or designed to encourage post-acquisition retention of key employees; and
  • legal and consulting costs associated with acquisitions, including non-recurring post-acquisition costs and services.

These acquisition related costs are not factored into the company's evaluation of its ongoing business operating performance or potential acquisitions, as they are not considered as part of the company's principal operations. Further, the amount of these costs can vary significantly from period to period based on the terms of an earn-out arrangement, revisions to assumptions that went into developing the estimate of the contingent consideration associated with an earn-out arrangement, the size and timing of an acquisition, the lives assigned to the acquired intangible assets, and the maturity of the business acquired. Excluding acquisition related costs from Non-GAAP measures provides investors with a basis to compare Synaptics against the performance of other companies without the variability and potential earnings volatility associated with purchase accounting and acquisition related items.

Share-based compensation
Share-based compensation expense relates to employee equity award programs and the vesting of the underlying awards, which includes stock options, deferred stock units, market stock units, performance stock units, phantom stock units and the employee stock purchase plan. Share-based compensation settled with stock, which includes stock options, deferred stock units, market stock units, performance stock units and the employee stock purchase plan, is a non-cash expense, while share-based compensation settled with cash, which includes phantom stock units, is a cash expense. Settlement of all employee equity award programs whether settled with cash or stock varies in amount from period to period and is dependent on market forces that are often beyond the company's control. As a result, the company excludes share-based compensation from its internal operating forecasts and models. The company believes that Non-GAAP measures reflecting adjustments for share-based compensation provide investors with a basis to compare the company's principal operating performance against the performance of peer companies without the variability created by share-based compensation resulting from the variety of equity-linked compensatory awards used by other companies and the varying methodologies and assumptions used.

Amortization of prepaid development costs
Amortization of prepaid development costs represents the amortization of the estimated cost to develop certain future roadmap devices designed in advance process nodes in connection with an acquisition. The amortization of prepaid development costs represents a non-cash charge. As a result, the company excludes amortization of prepaid development costs from its internal operating forecasts and models when evaluating its ongoing business performance. The company believes that Non-GAAP measures reflecting adjustments for amortization of prepaid development costs provide investors with a basis to compare the company's principal operating performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by the amortization of prepaid development costs.

Restructuring costs
Restructuring costs are costs incurred to address cost structure inefficiencies of acquired or existing business operations and consist primarily of employee termination and office closure costs, including the reversal of such costs. These costs are generally cash-based. As a result, the company excludes restructuring costs from its internal operating forecasts and models when evaluating its ongoing business performance. The company believes that Non-GAAP measures reflecting adjustments for restructuring costs provide investors with a basis to compare the company's principal operating performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by restructuring costs designed to address cost structure inefficiencies of acquired or existing business operations.

Gain on sale of audio technology assets
Gain on sale of audio technology assets, includes the sale of certain intangible assets related to our audio business. From time to time, we may enter into a transaction to sell certain intangible assets from our intangible asset portfolio that we believe can be monetized in a manner that does not impact our product roadmap. Excluding the gain on sale of audio technology assets from our Non-GAAP measures provides investors with a basis to compare the company's principal operating performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by infrequent transactions that are not considered to be part of our core business.

Gain on sale and leaseback transaction
Gain on sale and leaseback transaction, includes the gain on the sale of our San Jose headquarters buildings and land. Excluding the gain on sale and leaseback transaction from our Non-GAAP measures provides investors with a basis to compare the company's principal operating performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by infrequent transactions that are not considered to be part of our core business.

Gain on supplier settlement
Gain on supplier settlement, represents a settlement with a supplier to resolve a business matter. Excluding gain on supplier settlement from our Non-GAAP measures provides investors with a basis to compare the company's principal operating performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by infrequent transactions that are not considered to be part of our core business.

Other non-cash items
Other non-cash items include non-cash amortization of debt discount and issuance costs. These items are excluded from Non-GAAP results as they are non-cash. Excluding other non-cash items from Non-GAAP measures provides investors with a basis to compare Synaptics against the performance of other companies without the variability associated with other non-cash items.

Loss on extinguishment of debt
Loss on extinguishment of debt represents a non-cash item based on the difference in the carrying value of the debt and the fair value of the debt when extinguished. Loss on extinguishment of debt is excluded from Non-GAAP results as it is non-cash. Excluding loss on extinguishment of debt from Non-GAAP measures provides investors with a basis to compare Synaptics against the performance of other companies without the variability associated with loss on extinguishment of debt.

Equity investment gain or loss
Equity investment gain represents a gain on the sale of an equity investment in a minority owned company. Equity investment loss represents an adjustment in the book value of an equity investment in a minority owned company. The equity investment loss is a non-cash item. The company excludes equity investment gain or loss from its internal operating forecasts and models when evaluating its ongoing business performance. The company believes that Non-GAAP measures reflecting adjustments for equity investment gain or loss provide investors with a basis to compare the company's principal operating performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by equity investment gain or loss.

Non-GAAP tax adjustments
The company forecasts its long-term Non-GAAP tax rate in order to provide investors with improved long-term modeling accuracy and consistency across financial reporting periods by eliminating the effects of certain items in our Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP net income per share, including the type and amount of share-based compensation, the taxation of post-acquisition intercompany intellectual property cross-licensing or transfer transactions, and the impact of other acquisition items that may or may not be tax deductible. The company intends to evaluate its long-term Non-GAAP tax rate annually for significant events, including material tax law changes in the major tax jurisdictions in which the company operates, corporate organizational changes related to acquisitions or tax planning opportunities, and substantive changes in our geographic earnings mix.
