“Fiscal 2016 was a transformative year for GigPeak and culminated in the best quarterly and annual financial performance in the Company’s history,” said Dr. Avi Katz, Founder, Chairman and CEO of GigPeak, Inc. “We significantly expanded the product portfolio during the year with the strategic acquisition of Magnum Semiconductor. This addition greatly expanded the addressable markets we serve, namely cloud connectivity, which include the network and broadcast segments, and further diversified our revenue stream. In addition, it increased our customer base and drove additional cross-selling opportunities to existing customers. In FY 2016 we also released a large number of new devices to support next generation data center communication links, as well as advanced optical ASICs.
“Since founding the Company ten years ago, we are delighted that our outstanding achievements in technology, innovation, product diversification and financial performance have proven to be attractive to a respected industry leader such as IDT. We are confident that under the much larger umbrella of IDT, we will be able to generate greater value for our customers, employees and stakeholders. We are confident this acquisition will open new opportunities that will enable our current products and technologies to be synergistic with the larger installed customer base, engineering prowess and worldwide market reach of IDT for many years to come,” said Dr. Katz.
1Non-GAAP Measures - GigPeak reports gross
margin, operating income and net income on a Generally Accepted
Accounting Principles (GAAP) and non-GAAP basis. In addition, GigPeak
reports Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net earnings
before interest, taxes, other expense (income), net, depreciation and
amortization, including amortization of intangibles, stock-based
compensation, acquisition and strategic activities related costs and
loss on equity method investment. Adjusted EBITDA differs from net
earnings, as calculated in accordance with GAAP, in that it excludes the
foregoing items. We have made numerous investments in our business, such
as acquisitions and capital expenditures, which we believe we have
adjusted for in Adjusted EBITDA, and we have used equity as a
compensatory method that is also excluded. Adjusted EBITDA also does not
give effect to cash used for debt service requirements and thus does not
reflect funds available for reinvestments or other discretionary uses.
Management believes Adjusted EBITDA and the other non-GAAP financial
measures are important indicators of the ongoing operations of GigPeak’s
business and provide an additional metric for comparability between
reporting periods and provide an additional baseline for analyzing
trends in GigPeak’s operations because these financial measures provide
a view of our operations that excludes items that management believes
are not reflective of the operating performance, such as items
traditionally removed from net earnings in the calculation of EBITDA as
well as other expense (income), net. As a result, these non-GAAP
measures are provided to supplement investors’ overall understanding of,
and an enhanced level of transparency into, GigPeak’s financial
performance. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is used in determining
compliance with covenants in our term loan and revolving line agreement.
Adjusted EBITDA is not presented as an alternative measure of operating
performance, as determined in accordance with GAAP; nor should it be
considered a substitute for, or superior to the comparable GAAP
measures. Rather, these measures should be considered in addition to
results prepared in accordance with GAAP. No other adjustments were made
during the three month periods and fiscal years ended December 31, 2016
and 2015. A reconciliation of these GAAP to non-GAAP measurements and
Adjusted EBITDA for the three months and fiscal years ended December 31,
2016 and 2015, can be found in the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP
Financial Information” table attached to this press release.
