Commenting on the results, Dr. Keh-Shew Lu, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Diodes had an exceptional quarter in which results were at the upper end of our guidance range. Revenue grew over six percent sequentially and gross profit reached a quarterly record reflecting our continued improvement of product mix and increased capacity utilization. In fact, our achievement of 31.5 percent gross margin was the highest level since the second quarter of 2011.

“During the quarter, North America and Europe were stronger than expected, which contributed to further gains in the industrial end market. These regions have a solid product mix distribution due to the end markets and customers we serve in these geographies.

“Overall, Diodes continues to execute on our profitable growth strategy across our business. Our strong second quarter results demonstrate the leverage in our operating model, and we expect to generate increased profits and cash as revenue continues to grow.”

Second Quarter 2014

Revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $223.2 million, an increase of 6.3 percent from the $210.0 million in the first quarter of 2014, and an increase of 4.1 percent from the $214.4 million in the second quarter of 2013. Revenue increased due to sequential market share gains across the Company’s end markets, in particular for industrial products sold in North America and Europe.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2014 reached a record $70.3 million, or 31.5 percent of revenue, compared to $61.6 million, or 29.3 percent of revenue in the first quarter of 2014, and compared to $61.3 million, or 28.6 percent of revenue in the second quarter of 2013. The increase in gross profit margin was primarily due to continued improvement of product mix and increased capacity utilization.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2014 were $47.1 million, or 21.1 percent of revenue, compared to $47.2 million, or 22.5 percent of revenue, in the first quarter of 2014 and $51.1 million, or 23.8 percent of revenue in the second quarter of 2013.

GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $17.4 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, compared to $10.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014, and compared to $8.6 million, or $0.18 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2013.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $18.2 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, which excluded, net of tax, $1.6 million of non-cash acquisition related intangible asset amortization costs and a $1.0 million gain on the sale of assets. This compares to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $12.4 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2014 and $15.5 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013.

The following is a summary reconciliation of GAAP net income to non-GAAP adjusted net income and per share data, net of tax (unaudited and in thousands, except per share data):

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

Included in the second quarter of 2014 GAAP and non-GAAP adjusted net income was approximately $2.2 million, net of tax, non-cash share-based compensation expense. Excluding share-based compensation expense, both GAAP and non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS would have increased by an additional $0.05 per diluted share. GAAP and non-GAAP adjusted net income would have increased by an additional $0.04 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014 and $0.05 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2013.

EBITDA, which represents earnings before net interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization, was $42.9 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $32.8 million for the first quarter of 2014 and $30.2 million for the second quarter of 2013. For a reconciliation of GAAP net income to EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure), see the table near the end of this release for further details.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $33.9 million for the second quarter of 2014. Net cash flow was $23.8 million, which reflects the pay down of $2.7 million of long-term debt. Free cash flow was $22.1 million, which included $11.9 million of capital expenditures.

Balance Sheet

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had approximately $235 million in cash and cash equivalents and approximately $18 million in short-term investments. Long-term debt totaled approximately $163 million. Working capital was approximately $520 million.

Business Outlook

Dr. Lu concluded, “For the third quarter of 2014, we expect revenue to increase to a range of $228 million to $238 million, or up 2.1 percent to 6.6 percent sequentially. We expect gross margin to be 31.8 percent, plus or minus 2 percent. Operating expenses are expected to decrease to approximately 21.0 percent of revenue, plus or minus 1 percent. We expect our income tax rate to be 22 percent, plus or minus 3 percent, and shares used to calculate diluted EPS for the third quarter are anticipated to be approximately 48.8 million.”

ADJUSTED NET INCOME (Non-GAAP)

This measure consists of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) net income attributable to common stockholders (“net income”), which is then adjusted solely for the purpose of adjusting for retention costs, amortization of acquisition related intangible assets, gain on sale of assets, inventory valuations, acquisition costs, restructuring and tax payments related to tax audit, as discussed below. Excluding retention costs, gain on sale of assets, inventory valuations, acquisition costs, restructuring and tax payments related to tax audit provides investors with a better depiction of the Company’s operating results and provides a more informed baseline for modeling future earnings expectations. Excluding the amortization of acquisition related intangible assets allows for comparison of the Company’s current and historic operating performance. The Company excludes the above listed items to evaluate the Company’s operating performance, to develop budgets, to determine incentive compensation awards and to manage cash expenditures. Presentation of the above non-GAAP measures allows investors to review the Company’s results of operations from the same viewpoint as the Company’s management and Board of Directors. The Company has historically provided similar non-GAAP financial measures to provide investors an enhanced understanding of its operations, facilitate investors’ analyses and comparisons of its current and past results of operations and provide insight into the prospects of its future performance. The Company also believes the non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they provide additional information that research analysts use to evaluate semiconductor companies. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results and may differ from measures used by other companies. For example, we do not adjust for any amounts attributable to noncontrolling interest except for one-time non-cash items outside the course of ordinary business, such as impairment of goodwill. The Company recommends a review of net income on both a GAAP basis and non-GAAP basis be performed to get a comprehensive view of the Company’s results. The Company provides a reconciliation of GAAP net income to non-GAAP adjusted net income.

Detail of non-GAAP adjustments:

Retention costs – The Company excluded costs accrued within operating expenses in regard to the $5 million employee retention plan in connection with the BCD Semiconductor Manufacturing Limited (“BCD”) acquisition. The retention payments are payable at the 12, 18 and 24 month anniversaries of the acquisition with the majority of the expense occurring in the first 12 months. Although these retention costs will be recurring every quarter until the final retention payment has been made, they are not part of the employees’ normal annual salaries and therefore are being excluded. The Company believes the exclusion of retention costs related to the BCD acquisition 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.

Amortization of acquisition related intangible assetsThe Company excluded the amortization of its acquisition related intangible assets including developed technologies and customer relationships. The fair value of the acquisition related intangible assets, which was recognized through acquisition accounting, is amortized using straight-line methods which approximate the proportion of future cash flows estimated to be generated each period over the estimated useful lives of the applicable assets. The Company believes the exclusion of the amortization expense of acquisition related assets is appropriate as 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 the amortization expense as there is significant variability and unpredictability among companies with respect to this expense.

Gain on sale of assetsDuring the second quarter of 2014, the Company sold a building located in Taiwan and this gain was excluded from management’s assessment of the Company’s core operating performance. The Company believes the exclusion of the gain on sale of assets provides investors an enhanced view of a gain the Company may incur from time to time and facilitates comparisons with results of other periods that may not reflect such gains.

Inventory valuations The Company excluded cost incurred for inventory valuations. The Company adjusted the inventory acquired from the BCD acquisition to account for the reasonable profit allowance for the selling effort on finished goods inventory and the reasonable profit allowance for the completing and selling effort on the work–in-progress inventory. This non-cash adjustment to inventory is not recurring in nature, however it could be recurring to the extent there are additional acquisitions. The Company believes the exclusion of the BCD inventory valuation provides investors with a more accurate reflection of costs likely to be incurred in the absence of an usual event such as an acquisition and facilitates comparisons with the results of other periods that may not reflect such costs.

Acquisition costs The Company excluded costs associated with acquiring BCD, which consisted of advisory, legal and other professional and consulting fees. These costs were expensed in the first quarter of 2013 when the costs were incurred and 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.

Restructuring The Company has recorded restructuring charges to reduce its cost structure in order to enhance operating effectiveness and improve profitability. These restructuring activities related to our UK development team and the closure of our New York sales office. 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.

Tax expense related to tax audit – The Company excluded additional tax expense in regard to a tax audit of the China tax authorities. The China government audited the Company’s High and New Technology Enterprise (“HNTE”) status for the years 2009 through 2014 and determined there was an underpayment for the tax year 2013. The Company has been approved for the HNTE status for 2013 through 2014. Given that 2013 is an isolated occurrence, the additional tax and any penalties and interest associated with the audit are being excluded. The Company believes the exclusion of tax expense related to this tax audit provides investors with a more accurate indication of tax expense likely to be incurred on an ongoing basis and facilitates comparisons with the results of other periods that may not reflect such audit determinations.

ADJUSTED EARNINGS PER SHARE (Non-GAAP)

This non-GAAP financial measure is the portion of the Company’s GAAP net income assigned to each share of stock, excluding retention costs, amortization of acquisition related intangible assets, inventory valuations, acquisition costs and tax payments related to tax audit, as discussed above. Excluding retention costs, inventory valuations, acquisition costs and tax payments related to tax audit provides investors with a better depiction of the Company’s operating results and provides a more informed baseline for modeling future earnings expectations. Excluding the amortization of acquisition related intangible assets allows for comparison of the Company’s current and historic operating performance, as described in further detail above. This non-GAAP measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results and may differ from measures used by other companies. For example, we do not adjust for any amounts attributable to noncontrolling interest except for one-time non-cash items outside the course of ordinary business, such as impairment of goodwill. The Company recommends a review of diluted earnings per share on both a GAAP basis and non-GAAP basis be performed to obtain a comprehensive view of the Company’s results. Information on how these share calculations are made is included in the reconciliation tables provided.

CASH FLOW ITEMS

Free cash flow (FCF) (Non-GAAP)

FCF for the second quarter of 2014 is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is calculated by taking cash flow from operations less capital expenditures. For the second quarter of 2014, the amount was $22.1 million ($33.9 million less (-) $11.8 million). FCF 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 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.
