  • Gross profit margin was 29.3 percent, compared to 28.8 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 and 26.1 percent in the first quarter of 2013;
  • GAAP net income was $10.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 of $6.2 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, and the first quarter of 2013 GAAP net loss of ($1.9) million, or ($0.04) per share;
  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $12.4 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to $11.3 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $7.5 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2013;
  • Excluding $2.1 million, net of tax, of share-based compensation expense, GAAP and non-GAAP adjusted net income would have increased by $0.04 per diluted share; and
  • Achieved $46.1 million cash flow from operations, including an approximately $4.0 million reduction in inventory, and $34.3 million of free cash flow, including $11.8 million of capital expenditures. Net cash flow was $15.0 million, which includes the pay down of $17.3 million on long-term debt.

Commenting on the results, Dr. Keh-Shew Lu, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “During the quarter, revenue was essentially flat despite the Chinese New Year slowdown due to shipping inventory that we had strategically built-up during the fourth quarter. Most notably, gross margin improved by 50 basis points sequentially and 320 basis points year-over-year as a result of improved wafer fab performance, especially at BCD Fab 2 where the ramp-up is going smoothly, combined with an overall improvement in product mix.

“Also during the quarter, we improved our balance sheet by reducing long-term debt by approximately $17 million, which followed a reduction of almost $20 million last quarter. With our reduced capital expenditure spending, we generated approximately $34 million of free cash flow.

“As we look to the second quarter, we expect revenue to increase sequentially, highlighted by continued gross margin improvement as well as an ongoing commitment to cost controls that we expect to drive further profitability and cash generation.”
