Commenting on the results, Dr. Keh-Shew Lu, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated,

“2019 was another record year for Diodes across all financial metrics, generating solid revenue growth as well as increasing profitability and cash flow. Additionally, our record performance in the automotive and industrial markets combined with record sales from our Pericom IC products continue to be key contributors to our growth and margin expansion. As a result of our strong cash flow generation, we have also been able to strengthen our balance sheet and significantly reduce long-term debt to below $100 million.

 

“Our full year revenue growth of 2.9% once again outperformed our served market, which was down 6.6% in 2019. This consistent, above-market performance is a direct result of our targeted sales strategy to serve as a total solutions provider, leveraging our expanded product portfolio and broadened customer relationships. Our approach has also resulted in increased market share and content gains across key end equipment, while also addressing new application areas.

 

“Looking forward to the coming year, we expect to maintain our strong performance and continued achievement of record results, as we take further steps toward our long-term financial goals of 40% gross margin and 20% operating margin. With the automotive and industrial markets approaching our target of 40% of total revenue, we are well positioned to further drive growth and margin expansion. Our focus remains on increasing content across the growing end markets of automotive, industrial, high-end servers and storage, 5G as well as IoT.”

 

Fourth Quarter 2019

Revenue for fourth quarter 2019 was $301.2 million, compared to $314.4 million in the fourth quarter 2018  and $323.7 million in the third quarter 2019.

 

GAAP gross profit for the fourth quarter 2019 was $109.4 million, or 36.3 percent of revenue, compared to the fourth quarter 2018 of $114.2 million, or 36.3 percent of revenue, and the third quarter 2019 of $122.0 million, or 37.7 percent of revenue.

 

GAAP operating expenses for fourth quarter 2019 were $48.1 million, or 16.0 percent of revenue, and on a non-GAAP basis were $65.2 million, or 22.0 percent of revenue, which excludes a pre-tax $24.3 million gain on land sales, $4.5 million of amortization of acquisition-related intangible asset expenses, $1.6 million loss on asset impairments and $1.2 million acquisition related costs. GAAP operating expenses in the fourth quarter 2018 were $70.3 million, or 22.4 percent of revenue, and in the third quarter 2019 were $73.3 million, or 22.7 percent of revenue.

 

Fourth quarter 2019 GAAP net income was $47.2 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $29.5 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, in fourth quarter 2018 and GAAP net income of $38.1 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, in third quarter 2019.

 

Fourth quarter 2019 non-GAAP adjusted net income was $33.8 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, which excluded, net of tax, $19.2 million gain on land sales, $3.7 million of non-cash


acquisition-related intangible asset amortization costs and $1.3 million of asset impairment charges. This compares to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $33.2 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter 2018 and $41.9 million, or $0.81 per diluted share, in the third quarter 2019.

(See the reconciliation tables of GAAP net income to non-GAAP adjusted net income near the end of this release for further details.)

 

Included in fourth quarter 2019 GAAP net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income was approximately $4.1 million, net of tax, of non-cash share-based compensation expense.  Excluding share-based compensation expense, both GAAP earnings per share (“EPS”) and non-GAAP adjusted EPS would have increased by $0.08 per diluted share for fourth quarter 2019, $0.07 for fourth quarter 2018 and $0.09 for third quarter 2019.

 

EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure), which represents earnings before net interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization, in the fourth quarter 2019 was $88.3 million, or 29.3 percent of revenue, compared to $70.5 million, or 22.4 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter 2018  and $78.3 million, or 24.2 percent of revenue, in the third quarter 2019. For a reconciliation of GAAP net income to EBITDA, see the table near the end of this release for further details.  

 

For fourth quarter 2019, net cash provided by operating activities was $52.1 million. Net cash flow was a positive $39.8 million, including $22.6 million pay-down of long-term debt. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) was $29.7 million, which includes $22.4 million of capital expenditures.

 

 


Balance Sheet

As of December 31, 2019, the Company had approximately $263 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. Long-term debt (including the current portion) totaled approximately $97.5 million and working capital was approximately $525 million.  

 

The results announced today are preliminary and unaudited, as they are subject to the Company finalizing its closing procedures and completion of the Company's 2019 annual audit by its independent registered public accounting firm. As such, these results are subject to revision until the Company files its Form 10-K for the year ending December 31, 2019.

 

 

Business Outlook

Dr. Lu concluded, “For the first quarter of 2020, we expect revenue to be approximately $290 million, plus or minus 3 percent. At the mid-point, this represents a reduction of approximately 3.7 percent sequentially, which is better than typical seasonality. We expect GAAP gross margin to be 35.0 percent, plus or minus 1 percent.  These guidance ranges reflect the delayed start to manufacturing production following the extended Chinese New Year holiday due to the coronavirus outbreak in China. All production, including wafer fabs and assembly test facilities in China, resumed on February 10th, but we anticipate it will take longer to return to full production. At this time, it is difficult for us to fully determine the potential impact to the supply chain or customer demand disruption resulting from the prevailing crisis. As a reminder, Diodes does not have a manufacturing facility in the affected areas of Wuhan and Hubei province, as our primary facilities are located in Shanghai and Chengdu. Similar to many other companies, we will continue to closely monitor the situation.

 

“Non-GAAP operating expenses, which are GAAP operating expenses adjusted for amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, are expected to be approximately 22.5 percent of revenue, plus or minus 1 percent.  We expect net interest expense to be approximately $2.0 million.  Our income tax rate is expected to be 20 percent, plus or minus 3 percent, and shares used to calculate diluted EPS for the first quarter are anticipated to be approximately 52.9 million.”

 

Purchase accounting adjustments related to amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets of $3.7 million, after tax, for Pericom and previous acquisitions are not included in these non-GAAP estimates.

ADJUSTED NET INCOME AND ADJUSTED EARNINGS PER SHARE

The Company’s financial statements present net income and earnings per share that are calculated using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”).  The Company’s management makes adjustments to the GAAP measures that it feels are necessary to allow investors and other readers of the Company’s financial releases to view the Company’s operating results as viewed by the Company’s management, board of directors and research analysts in the semiconductor industry. These non-GAAP measures are not prepared in accordance with, and should not be considered alternatives or necessarily superior to, GAAP financial data and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures, even if they have similar names. The explanation of the adjustments made in the table above, are set forth below:

Detail of non-GAAP adjustments

 

Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assetsThe Company excluded this item, including amortization of developed technologies and customer relationships.  The fair value of the acquisition-related intangible assets is amortized using straight-line methods which approximate the proportion of future cash flows estimated to be generated each period over the estimated useful life of the applicable assets.  The Company believes that exclusion of this item is appropriate because a significant portion of the purchase price for its acquisitions was allocated to the intangible assets that have short lives and exclusion of the amortization expense allows comparisons of operating results that are consistent over time for both the Company’s newly acquired and long-held businesses.  In addition, the Company excluded this item because there is significant variability and unpredictability among companies with respect to this expense.

 

KFAB restructuring - The Company has recorded restructuring charges related to the shutdown and relocation of its wafer fabrication facility located in Lee’s Summit, MO (“KFAB”).  These restructuring charges are excluded from management’s assessment of the Company’s operating performance. The Company believes the exclusion of the restructuring charges provides investors an enhanced view of the cost structure of the Company’s operations and facilitates comparisons with the results of other periods that may not reflect such charges or may reflect different levels of such charges.

 

Officer retirement – In 2018, the Company excluded costs related to the retirement of two executives.  These costs represent cash payments and the accelerated vesting of previously issued stock awards.  The Company feels it is appropriate to exclude these costs since they don’t represent ongoing operating expenses and will present investors with a more accurate indication of our continuing operations.

Acquisition related costs The Company excluded expenses associated with the acquisition of Lite-On Semiconductor, which consisted of advisory, legal and other professional and consulting fees.  These costs were expensed as they were incurred and as services were received, and in which the corresponding tax adjustments were made for the non-deductible portions of these expenses.  The Company believes the exclusion of the acquisition related costs provides investors with a more accurate reflection of costs likely to be incurred in the absence of an unusual event such as an acquisition and facilitates comparisons with the results of other periods that may not reflect such costs.

 

Land sale inspection extension fee – The Company excluded receipt of inspection extension fees related to the sale of the land located in Plano, TX.  This fee is paid by the land purchaser for the right to extend the sale close date, and the fee is not applied to the purchase price.  The Company feels it is appropriate to exclude these fees since they don’t represent ongoing operating income and their exclusion will present investors with a more accurate indication of our continuing operations.

 

Loss on impairment – The Company excluded impairment loss related to the intangible assets previously acquired from TFSS.  The Company feels it is appropriate to exclude this impairment loss since they don’t represent ongoing operating expenses and will present investors with a more accurate indication of our continuing operations.

 

Gain on land sale – The Company excluded the gain related to the sale of the land located in Plano, TX during December 2019.  The Company feels it is appropriate to exclude this gain since they don’t represent ongoing operating income and their exclusion will present investors with a more accurate indication of our continuing operations.

 

 


 

 

CASH FLOW ITEMS

Free cash flow (FCF) (Non-GAAP)

FCF for the fourth quarter of 2019 is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is calculated by subtracting capital expenditures from cash flow from operations.  For the fourth quarter of 2019, FCF was $29.7 million, which represents the cash and cash equivalents that we are able to generate after taking into account cash outlays required to maintain or expand property, plant and equipment. FCF is important because it allows us to pursue opportunities to develop new products, make acquisitions and reduce debt.

CONSOLIDATED RECONCILIATION OF NET INCOME TO EBITDA

EBITDA represents earnings before net interest expense, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization. Management believes EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties, such as financial institutions in extending credit, in evaluating companies in our industry and provides further clarity on our profitability. In addition, management uses EBITDA, along with other GAAP and non-GAAP measures, in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry. The calculation of EBITDA generally eliminates the effects of financing, operating in different income tax jurisdictions, and accounting effects of capital spending, including the impact of our asset base, which can differ depending on the book value of assets and the accounting methods used to compute depreciation and amortization expense.  EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under GAAP, and when analyzing our operating performance, investors should use EBITDA in addition to, and not as an alternative for, income from operations and net income, each as determined in accordance with GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. For example, our EBITDA takes into account all net interest expense, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization without taking into account any amounts attributable to noncontrolling interest. Furthermore, EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as tax and debt service payments.

The following table provides a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA (in thousands, unaudited):
