MaxLinear, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Fourth Quarter 2017 GAAP Net Revenue of $113.7 million,
GAAP Diluted Loss per Share of $0.29,
and Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.38

CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a leading provider of radio-frequency, mixed-signal and high-performance analog integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multi-market applications, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017.

Management Commentary

“We are pleased to announce the financial results of fourth quarter 2017, which brings to close a very eventful 2017. In the fourth quarter, we delivered GAAP net revenue of $113.7 million and generated $21.7 million of net cash flow from operating activities.  These strong cash flows enabled a further $20.0 million in debt repayment in the quarter. As a result, our 2017 total debt repayment stands at $70.0 million since the closing of the Exar acquisition in May 2017, which is consistent with our stated objective of using net cash generation to aggressively deleverage. Our ability to find efficiencies in our combined operations has enabled MaxLinear to maintain its aggressive pace of new technology platform innovations that will yield benefits to MaxLinear shareholders well into the future.

“In 2017, we recorded another year of record revenue with total GAAP net revenue of $420.3 million, or 8% sequential growth, in the face of legacy Entropic product declines in analog channel-stacking solutions and video SoCs, and persistent China macro optical fiber headwinds. We were able to weather these challenges due to revenue strength in our broadband franchise, revenue contributions from our Exar acquisition and the acquisition of Marvell’s G.hn business, as well as contributions from our expanding portfolio of network infrastructure solutions.

“Most excitingly, 2017 was undoubtedly the most significant year for the company from an engineering execution and market expansion perspective. In 2017, we started mass production of the industry’s first 28nm CMOS RF transceiver spanning the 5-45Ghz frequency for the wireless backhaul market. We also completed the tape-out of the industry’s first 400Gbps PAM-4 SerDes device for the hyperscale data-center market. For the cable infrastructure market, we completed the tape-out of the industry’s first Full-Duplex (FDX) DOCSIS cable fiber node infrastructure remote PHY system-on-chip device. We also successfully integrated two strategic technology platform acquisitions in the form of Exar Corporation and Marvell’s G.hn home networking business. We are very excited by our expanding technology footprint, which addresses some of the most complex analog and mixed-signal communications platforms in the industry. As a result, we continue to expand our existing TAM and solidify our position as one of the industry’s leading providers of CMOS mixed-signal ICs,” commented Kishore Seendripu, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO.

Fourth Quarter 2017 Business Highlights

  • Demonstrated industry-first 400Gbps pulse-amplitude-modulation digital signal processing systems-on-a-chip solutions with integrated laser drivers to address the high-speed optical interconnect needs of mega-scale cloud data centers and network enterprises.
  • G.hn Wave-2 networking chipset selected by Comtrend for new carrier-grade Wi-Fi connectivity extender solution in the North American service provider market.
  • Demonstrated NetAerial cord cutter ATSC TV distribution system, which incorporates MaxLinear’s ATSC TV tuners and G.hn chipsets, to stream live TV to connected smart devices with Geniatech.
  • Announced plans to introduce G.hn connectivity solutions for the automotive, industrial, security and utility markets for use in vehicles, industrial products, security cameras, smart meters and other smart grid applications.
  • Announced collaboration with Airgain Inc. to demonstrate more than 2 Gbps data transfer through low-emissivity glass windows for 5G fixed wireless access with MaxLinear’s AirPHY™ wireless modem technology and Airgain’s broadband, near-field antenna module.
  • Commenced shipments of digital satellite low-noise block downconverters and channel stacking ICs to Telefónica with ProBrand International for two South American countries.

Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights

GAAP basis:

The fourth quarter 2017 results continue to be influenced by the acquisitions and related purchase price accounting impacts of Marvell’s G.hn business in April 2017 and Exar in May 2017, and interest on the term loan related to the Exar transaction.

  • Net revenue was $113.7 million, flat sequentially, and up 31% year-on-year.
  • GAAP gross margin was 45.8%, compared to 45.6% in the prior quarter, and 57.8% in the year-ago quarter.
  • GAAP operating expenses were $57.8 million in the fourth quarter 2017, or 51% of net revenue, compared to $62.5 million in the prior quarter, and $42.1 million in the year-ago quarter.
  • GAAP loss from operations was 5% of revenue, compared to loss from operations of 9% in the prior quarter, and income from operations of 10% in the year-ago quarter.
  • Net cash flow provided by operating activities of $21.7 million, compared to cash flow provided by operations of $37.7 million in the prior quarter and cash flow provided by operating activities of $27.6 million in the year-ago quarter.
  • GAAP pre-tax losses were 9% of revenue, compared to pre-tax losses that were 14% of revenue in the prior quarter, and pre-tax income that was 10% of revenue in the year-ago quarter.
  • GAAP income tax provision was 85% of pre-tax loss, including approximately $16.5 million of income tax expense for the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, or Tax Act, primarily associated with reducing the federal tax rate on certain deferred tax assets from 35% to 21%, compared to an income tax benefit of 41% of pre-tax loss in the prior quarter, and income tax provision of 3% of pre-tax income in the year-ago quarter. Excluding the effects of the Tax Act, we would have recorded a tax benefit of approximately 72% of the pre-tax loss for the quarter.
  • GAAP net loss was $19.4 million, compared to net loss of $9.2 million in the prior quarter, and net income of $8.3 million in the year-ago quarter.
  • GAAP diluted loss per share was $0.29, compared to loss per share of $0.14 in the prior quarter, and earnings per share of $0.12 in the year-ago quarter.

Non-GAAP basis:

  • Non-GAAP gross margin was 62.0%. This compares to 62.5% in the prior quarter (62.1% when calculated to adjust for the prior quarter’s $0.8 million of deferred revenue eliminated under Exar acquisition purchase accounting), and 63.9% in the year-ago quarter.
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses were $38.3 million, or 34% of revenue, compared to $37.9 million or 33% of revenue in the prior quarter, and $30.1 million and 35% of revenue in the year-ago quarter.
  • Non-GAAP income from operations was 28% of revenue, compared to 29% in the prior quarter, and 29% in the year-ago quarter.
  • Non-GAAP pre-tax margin was 24% of revenue, compared to 25% in the prior quarter, and 30% in the year-ago quarter.
  • Non-GAAP effective tax rate was 4% of non-GAAP pre-tax income, compared to 4% in the prior quarter, and 1% in the year-ago quarter.  Current quarter non-GAAP effective tax rate is based on year-to-date effective tax rate of 7% of non-GAAP pre-tax income. Effects of the Tax Act were excluded from Non-GAAP effective tax rate.
  • Non-GAAP net income was $26.3 million, compared to $27.1 million in the prior quarter, and $25.7 million in the year-ago quarter.
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.38, compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.39 in the prior quarter, and diluted earnings per share of $0.38 in the year-ago quarter.

First Quarter 2018 Business Outlook
The company expects revenue in the first quarter 2018 to be in the range of $110 million to $114 million, and also estimates the following:

  • GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin of approximately 55% and 63%, respectively.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses of approximately $57.5 million and $39.5 million, respectively.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP interest and other expenses of approximately $4.2 million.
  • GAAP tax expense of approximately $0.5 million and non-GAAP cash tax rate of approximately 7%.

Cautionary Note Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Forward-looking statements include, among others, statements concerning our future financial performance (including our current guidance for first quarter 2018 revenue, gross margins, operating expenses, interest expenses, and tax rates). These forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause actual results to be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on management’s current, preliminary expectations and are subject to various risks and uncertainties. In particular, our future operating results are substantially dependent on our assumptions about market trends and conditions and our expectations with respect to recently completed acquisitions.  With respect to recently completed acquisitions, Exar’s target markets and business operations differ substantially from those of MaxLinear, and we may be unable to realize anticipated strategic, financial, and operating synergies to the same relative extent as we were able to achieve in other recent acquisitions.  In addition, our decisions with respect to all our acquisitions were based on management’s current expectations with respect to the size of the available markets and growth opportunities presented by these acquisitions, all of which are subject to material risks and uncertainties.  In connection with the acquisition of Exar, we incurred substantial acquisition-related indebtedness, which materially changed our financial profile and presents specific risks relating to our ability to service interest and principal payments and limitations on our operating flexibility based on operating covenants in the applicable term loan agreements, including (without limitation) debt covenant restrictions that limit our ability to obtain additional financing, issue guarantees, create liens, make certain restricted payments or repay certain obligations or to pursue future acquisitions.  Additional risks and uncertainties arising from our operations generally and our recently completed acquisitions include intense competition in our industry; our dependence on a limited number of customers for a substantial portion of our revenues; uncertainties concerning how end user markets for our products will develop; potential uncertainties arising from continued consolidation among cable television and satellite operators in our target markets and continued consolidation among competitors within the semiconductor industry generally; our ability to develop and introduce new and enhanced products on a timely basis and achieve market acceptance of those products, particularly as we seek to expand outside of our historic markets; potential decreases in average selling prices for our products; risks relating to intellectual property protection and the prevalence of intellectual property litigation in our industry; indemnification obligations of Exar arising from a recent divestiture; the impact on our financial condition of the incurred acquisition indebtedness and cash usage arising from the Exar transaction; our reliance on a limited number of third party manufacturers; and our lack of long-term supply contracts and dependence on limited sources of supply. Our forward-looking GAAP income tax rate includes preliminary assumptions regarding the Tax Act, whereas our forward-looking non-GAAP income tax rate excludes impacts of the Tax Act. The final impact of the Tax Act on our income taxes may differ from our estimates, possibly materially, due to, among other things, changes in interpretations and assumptions made, additional guidance that may be issued, and actions taken by MaxLinear as a result of the Tax Act. In addition to these risks and uncertainties, investors should review the risks and uncertainties contained in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 and our Current Reports on Form 8-K, as well as the information to be set forth under the caption “Risk Factors” in MaxLinear’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, which we expect to file in the next week. All forward-looking statements are based on the estimates, projections and assumptions of management as of February 13, 2018, and MaxLinear is under no obligation (and expressly disclaims any such obligation) to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

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 gross margin, operating expenses, operating expenses as a percentage of revenue, income from operations as percentage of revenue, pre-tax margins, effective tax rate, net income and diluted earnings per share. These supplemental measures include the gross margin impact of Exar’s deferred profit eliminated in purchase price accounting and exclude the effects of (i) stock-based compensation expense; (ii) an accrual related to our performance based bonus plan for 2017, which we currently intend to settle in shares of our common stock; (iii) accruals related to our performance based bonus plan for 2016, which we settled in shares of our class A common stock in 2016 and 2017; (iv) amortization of purchased intangible assets and inventory step up; (v) depreciation of fixed assets step-up; (vi) restricted merger proceeds and contingent consideration and incentive award; (vii) acquisition and integration costs related to our recently completed acquisitions; (viii) professional fees and settlement costs related to our previously disclosed IP and commercial litigation matters; (ix) IPR&D impairment losses; (x) severance and other restructuring charges; and (xi) non-cash income tax benefits and expenses and effects of the Tax Act. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with and do not serve as an alternative for GAAP. We believe that these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our GAAP results of operations. These non-GAAP measures should only be viewed in conjunction with corresponding GAAP measures. We compensate for the limitations of non-GAAP financial measures by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of our performance.

We believe that non-GAAP financial measures can provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain non-cash and other one-time expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results. Among other uses, our management uses non-GAAP measures to compare our performance relative to forecasts and strategic plans and to benchmark our performance externally against competitors. In addition, management’s incentive compensation will be determined in part using these non-GAAP measures because we believe non-GAAP measures better reflect our core operating performance.

The following are explanations of each type of adjustment that we incorporate into non-GAAP financial measures:

Stock-based compensation expense relates to equity incentive awards granted to our employees, directors, and consultants. Our equity incentive plans are important components of our employee incentive compensation arrangements and are reflected as expenses in our GAAP results. Stock-based compensation expense has been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense for MaxLinear.

Bonuses under our executive and non-executive bonus programs have been excluded from our non-GAAP net income for all periods reported. Bonus payments for the first and second half of the 2016 performance periods were settled through the issuance of shares of Class A common stock under our equity incentive plans in August 2016 and February 2017, respectively. We currently expect that bonus awards under our fiscal 2017 program will be settled in common stock in the first quarter of fiscal 2018. While we include the dilutive impact of equity awards in weighted average shares outstanding, the expense associated with stock-based awards reflects a non-cash charge that we exclude from non-GAAP net income.

Expenses incurred in relation to acquisitions include amortization of purchased intangible assets and step-up of inventory to fair value, depreciation of step-up of property and equipment to fair value, acquisition and integration costs primarily consisting of professional and consulting fees, incentive awards, and restricted merger proceeds which represent the change in fair value of contingent consideration related to a 2014 acquisition and one-time impact on gross margin from elimination of Exar’s deferred profit in purchase price accounting.

IPR&D impairment losses relate to our abandonment of IPR&D technology assets.

Restructuring charges incurred are related to our restructuring plans which address issues primarily relating to the integration of the Company and acquired businesses or internal operations and primarily include severance and restructuring costs related to exiting certain facilities.

Expenses incurred in relation to our intellectual property and commercial litigation include professional fees incurred.

Income tax benefits and expense adjustments are those that do not affect cash income taxes payable. Effects of the Tax Act were excluded from Non-GAAP effective tax rate.

Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures for the historic periods disclosed in this press release appear below. Because of the inherent uncertainty associated with our ability to project future charges, particularly related to stock-based compensation and its related tax effects as well as potential impairments, we have not provided a reconciliation for non-GAAP guidance provided for the first quarter 2018.
