Cypress Reports Fourth-Quarter and Year-End 2011 Results

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ:CY) today announced fourth-quarter 2011 and fiscal year 2011 results, which included the following highlights and remarks from its president and CEO, T.J. Rodgers.

Fellow shareholders:

Our revenue and earnings for the quarter are given below, compared with the prior-quarter and prior-year results:

(In thousands, except per-share data)        
   
NON-GAAP GAAP
Q4 2011   Q3 2011   Q4 2010 Q4 2011   Q3 2011   Q4 2010
Revenue $242,372 $264,743 $226,564 $242,372 $264,743 $220,314
 
Gross margin 56.1% 57.9% 59.2% 53.6% 56.3% 55.9%
 
Pretax margin 22.6% 26.8% 23.1% 11.7% 16.6% 8.3%
 

Net income

$56,119 $69,237 $50,389 $30,961 $39,981 $9,053
 
Diluted EPS $0.32 $0.37 $0.25 $0.18 $0.22 $0.05
 

Our fourth-quarter revenue exceeded the high end of guidance, decreased 8.5% sequentially and grew 10.0% year-on-year. All core divisions and most major product lines decreased sequentially as expected. We continue to focus on operating expense control and even in a challenging revenue quarter our non-GAAP EPS grew 28% year over year. Inventory decreased 17.3% sequentially, and inventory in the supply chain remains very low.

For fiscal year 2011, Cypress posted total revenue of $995.2 million, an increase of 13.4% from fiscal year 2010 revenue of $877.5 million. On a non-GAAP1 basis, Cypress's fiscal year 2011 diluted earnings per share was $1.24, compared with diluted earnings per share of $0.94 in 2010, an increase of 32%. On a GAAP basis, Cypress's fiscal year 2011 diluted net earnings per share was $0.89, compared with diluted net earnings per share of $0.40 in 2010.

Booking visibility will remain limited into Q1 due to historically low lead-times, continued inventory adjustments and ongoing concerns over worldwide macroeconomic issues. Our book-to-bill ratio for Q4 was 0.58, a decrease from that of Q3 and less than the normal seasonal figure. Consequently, we expect Q1 revenue also to decrease at a rate greater than normal. The expected decrease in revenue includes not only the seasonal factor, but also some revenue decreases due to tablet end sales. Assuming no further macroeconomic deterioration, we expect that bookings and revenue will bottom out in Q1 2012 and lead to a strong second half as many new product design wins ramp into production.

Cypress posted a very good year in 2011, especially considering the macroeconomic cloud that has hung over the industry for the last six plus months. The performance of our broad base of proprietary and TrueTouch products led to a 13% revenue increase, double the industry growth rate.

Our non-GAAP EPS increased 32.0% year over year, and our cash flow from operations in 2011 enabled us to return $672.9 million dollars to our shareholders by purchasing 36 million shares and initiating a $0.36 annualized dividend per share that yielded approximately 2.2% for the year.

BUSINESS REVIEW

+ Our non-GAAP1 consolidated gross margin for the fourth quarter was 56.1%, down 1.8 percentage points from the previous quarter due mainly to product mix and factory absorption. Our GAAP fourth-quarter consolidated gross margin was 53.6%.

+ Our net inventory dollars at the end of the fourth quarter were down 17.3% relative to Q3, and our inventory days were down by 12 days to 79 days.

+ Cash and investments for the fourth quarter totaled $166.3 million, an increase of $31.3 million from the prior quarter, and equivalent to approximately $1.08 per outstanding share. During the quarter, we bought back 4.0 million shares of common stock (2.3% of total outstanding shares) for $62.8 million at an average price of $15.82 per share. Since we announced our $400-million stock repurchase program in September 2011, we have repurchased 5.1 million shares through January 12, 2012 and have approximately $318.9 million left for additional repurchases.

Our divisional revenue and gross margins are detailed below:

FOURTH-QUARTER 2011 HIGHLIGHTS

+ Cypress announced that its industry-leading Gen4 family of TrueTouch touchscreen controllers is in production ahead of schedule, and that initial production shipments have begun. Gen4 delivers industry-best performance in all measurable touch categories, including the world's best Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) and unparalleled performance in the presence of noise sources. Noise is the biggest challenge faced by touchscreen designers. The unprecedented noise immunity offered by our Gen4 family enables manufacturers to eliminate air gaps and shields in displays and produce thinner, sleeker, less expensive cell phone designs.

+ Cypress expanded its Gen4 TrueTouch controller family, adding a new member that targets displays up to 12 inches used in the fast-growing tablet and ultrabook PC market. Like smaller-screen Gen4 devices, it offers industry-best performance in all categories, including SNR and noise immunity. Gen4 also has the industry's lowest active power consumption of just 3.6 milliwatts, best tracking accuracy, and fastest screen refresh rates. It provides full support for major mobile operating systems including Win8 and Android.

+ NVIDIA® certified Cypress's new single-chip TrueTouch solution on the reference design for its NVIDIA Tegra® 3 quad-core mobile processor. The design supports large touchscreens, including next-generation Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)-based tablets.

+ Cypress announced that its single-chip, large-touchscreen, Gen4 TrueTouch controllers also enable sensor-on-lens technology with direct lamination to the LCD. The controllers enable manufacturers to deposit conductive Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) touch sensor lines directly onto the cover glass, so tablets can be made thinner, cheaper, and with fewer manufacturing steps.

+ Cypress unveiled Tx-Boost™, a breakthrough feature for its Gen4 TrueTouch touchscreen controllers that dramatically improves system performance without added cost. Based on Gen4's patent-pending, high-voltage Tx drivers, Tx-Boost delivers three times higher Signal-to-Noise ratio without the use of digital filters, enabling the industry's thinnest devices while reducing materials cost. It also reduces power consumption and increases scan rates. Cypress accomplishes this without large, expensive, and noisy external switching regulators needed by competitors to generate high-voltage Tx signaling.

+ Cypress announced official USB-IF certification of its two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 peripheral controllers, EZ-USB® FX3 and West Bridge® Benicia™, both of which are in full production. EZ-USB FX3, one of the first USB 3.0 peripheral controllers in the industry, is also the only programmable USB 3.0 solution available from any source. Its integrated, highly flexible features enable developers to add 5-Gbps USB 3.0 connectivity to any system. West Bridge Benicia enables mobile devices to double input/output performance, stream high-definition video, "side-load" multimedia content at up to 160 Mbytes per second, and reduce battery charging time by 50 percent.

+ Cypress announced that the next generation of its revolutionary PSoC Creator™ software — the design environment for its PSoC® 3 and PSoC 5 programmable system-on-chip families — is available at www.cypress.com/go/psoccreator. Among hundreds of new features in the new version, PSoC Creator 2.0 supports the ARM-based PSoC 5 architecture and the popular Keil µVision® 4 software.

+ Cypress introduced the new CY8CKIT-025 Development Kit for its PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 programmable system-on-chip architectures. The new kit highlights PSoC's unique, programmable 8- to 20-bit Delta-Sigma ADC that allows tradeoffs between speed and accuracy.

+ Cypress announced that Sonoma Wire Works selected the PSoC 3 solution for its new GuitarJack Model 2, which connects a musical instrument, microphone, or audio hardware with Apple products such as the iPod touch, iPhone or iPad.

+ Cypress unveiled a new subsidiary, Deca Technologies, part of its Emerging Technology Division. Deca designs and manufactures breakthrough electronic interconnect solutions—microwiring that links ever-smaller generations of integrated circuits and packages to small-form-factor electronic products such as smartphones. Deca leverages the unique, cost-effective solar wafer manufacturing technology of SunPower Corp. Its initial products include Wafer Level Chip Scale Packaging (WLCSP) derivatives targeting the $1 billion-plus Wafer Level Packaging (WLP) market. Deca aims to leverage its technology to integrate the dissimilar chips used in next-generation systems.

+ Cypress announced that Avago Technologies Inc. has dropped its lawsuit against Cypress. The lawsuit had claimed that Cypress's OvationONS® products infringed Avago optical navigation patents. Cypress paid no damages and admitted to no infringement in the case. Cypress uses its own, patented OptiCheck™ technology in OvationONS products, which enable finger navigation in handheld devices.

Notes to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, Cypress uses non-GAAP financial measures which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to exclude certain items, as described in details below. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional and useful way of viewing aspects of Cypress's operations that, when viewed in conjunction with Cypress's GAAP results, provide a more comprehensive understanding of the various factors and trends affecting Cypress's business and operations. Non-GAAP financial measures used by Cypress include:

• Research and development expenses;

• Selling, general and administrative expenses;

• Operating income (loss);

• Net income (loss); and

• Diluted net income (loss) per share.

Cypress uses each of these non-GAAP financial measures for internal managerial purposes, when providing its financial results and business outlook to the public, and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Cypress's operational and financial performance of current and historical results. Management uses these non-GAAP measures for strategic and business decision making, internal budgeting, forecasting and resource allocation processes. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management's internal comparisons to Cypress's historical operating results and comparisons to competitors' operating results.

Cypress believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to the GAAP financial results, are useful to investors because they allow investors to see Cypress's results "through the eyes" of management as these non-GAAP financial measures reflect Cypress's internal measurement processes. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enable investors to better assess changes in each key element of Cypress's operating results across different reporting periods on a consistent basis. Thus, management believes that each of these non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with another method for assessing Cypress's operating results in a manner that is focused on the performance of its ongoing operations.

There are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, non-GAAP financial measures may be limited in value because they exclude certain items that may have a material impact upon Cypress's reported financial results. Management compensates for these limitations by providing investors with reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures supplement, and should be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial measures. Investors should review the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the accompanying press release.

As presented in the "Reconciliation of GAAP Financial Measures to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" tables in the accompanying press release, each of the non-GAAP financial measures excludes one or more of the following items:
