BCD Semiconductor Manufacturing Limited Announces Financial Results for the Fiscal Second Quarter of 2011 and Share Repurchase Program

SHANGHAI, China, July 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BCD Semiconductor Manufacturing Limited ("BCD Semiconductor") (Nasdaq:BCDS), a leading analog integrated device manufacturer, or IDM, based in China, specializing in the design, manufacture and sale of power management integrated circuits, or ICs, today announced financial results for the fiscal second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

The results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2011 are as follows:

  • Revenue was $38.5 million, a sequential increase of 24.2% from $31.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011, and a 12.9% increase from $34.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010.
  • Gross margin was 30.0%, compared to 29.1% for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 and 33.8% for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010.
  • Operating expenses were $6.9 million, compared to $6.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 and $5.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010. Operating expenses for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 included share-based compensation expenses of $359 thousand, as compared to $319 thousand and $334 thousand for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 and for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010, respectively.
  • Operating profit was $4.6 million, or 11.9% of revenue, compared to $3.0 million, or 9.6% of revenue, for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 and $6.1 million, or 18.0% of revenue, for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010.
  • GAAP net income was $5.1 million compared to $3.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011, and $7.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $5.5 million, compared to $3.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 and $6.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010.
  • Weighted average fully diluted American Depositary Shares (ADS) was 19,838,416.
  • Cash balance was $72.0 million as of June 30, 2011, compared to approximately $81.8 million as of March 31, 2011 and $32.9 million as of June 30, 2010.

"Our revenue for the quarter was strong across our three main end markets in computing, consumer and communications," said Chieh Chang, Chief Executive Officer of BCD Semiconductor. "China performed well while Taiwan was roughly in-line with expectations and Korea was softer than expected. We believe that our high performance linear, AC/DC and DC/DC product lines continued to gain share in the quarter. AC/DC in particular outperformed our expectations with consumer appliance and LED lighting demand picking up in the quarter. We brought 17 new products to market in the quarter and saw increased design win traction for our AC/DC products especially with cell phone charger and LED lighting customers. Overall, I am pleased with our second quarter results and remain focused on our growth initiatives including profitable revenue growth, new product development, design win activities, and expanding our manufacturing capacity."

Business Outlook

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 is expected to be in the range of $43 to $45 million, representing growth of approximately 11.4% to 16.6% when compared to the third quarter of 2010 and growth of approximately 11.7% to 16.9% when compared to the second quarter of 2011. Gross margins are expected to be similar to the second quarter. Operating expenses are expected to increase slightly compared to the second quarter. We expect our effective income tax rate to range between 7 and 9 percent. Shares used to calculate GAAP earnings per share for the third quarter are anticipated to be approximately 19.9 million.

Share Repurchase Program

BCD Semiconductor further announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a share repurchase program under which management may exercise discretion to repurchase up to US$20 million of BCD Semiconductor's American Depositary Shares. The share repurchase program will be funded with BCD Semiconductor's cash on hand. The repurchase program does not obligate BCD Semiconductor to repurchase a minimum number of shares, and the program may be suspended or canceled without prior notice.

Chieh Chang commented, "We believe the share repurchase program represents an effective use of our cash and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to creating value for our shareholders."

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections of future performance based on management's judgment, beliefs, current trends, and anticipated product performance. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, projected revenues, gross margins on a non-GAAP basis, non-GAAP operating expenses, income tax rate and shares used to calculate earnings per share under the section titled "Business Outlook," statements regarding our share repurchase program and our ongoing commitment to create value for our shareholders.  Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, our ability to introduce or develop new and enhanced products that achieve market acceptance; the actual product performance in volume production; the quality and reliability of our product; our ability to achieve design wins; general business and economic conditions; our ability to identify and consummate strategic transactions; the state of the semiconductor industry and seasonality of our markets; and other risks and uncertainties as described in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 filed on May 25, 2011, and other filings with the SEC. Other unknown or unpredictable factors or underlying assumptions subsequently proving to be incorrect could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance, or achievements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. All information provided in this press release is as of today's date, unless otherwise stated, and BCD Semiconductor undertakes no duty to update such information, except as required under applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net income. These supplemental measures exclude share-based compensation expenses that are non-cash charges, gain or loss on valuation of warrant liabilities and amortization of acquired intangible assets. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures can provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain non-cash expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results. In addition, our management uses non-GAAP measures to compare our performance relative to forecasts and to benchmark our performance externally against competitors. Our use of non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations in that the non-GAAP financial measures we use may not be directly comparable to those reported by other companies. For example, the term used in this press release, non-GAAP net income, does not have a standardized meaning. Other companies may use the same or similarly named measures, but exclude different items, which may not provide investors with a comparable view of our performance in relation to other companies. We seek to compensate for this limitation by providing a detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the tables attached to this press release. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

The primary difference between the GAAP loss per share of $(0.40) and the non-GAAP earnings per share of 
$0.19 for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 is that under GAAP, the 5 million ordinary shares at a fair value of 
$9.1 million issued to the Series C preferred shareholders upon the IPO completion were accounted for as a
deemed dividend thereby reducing the earnings available to ordinary shareholders, whereas no dividend was 
reflected in the calculation of non-GAAP earnings per share.
