SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GigPeak, Inc. (NYSE MKT:GIG), a lead innovator of semiconductor ICs and software solutions for high-speed connectivity and high-quality video compression over the Network and the Cloud, today announced that on Tuesday, April 5, 2016, it had closed its acquisition of Magnum Semiconductor, Inc., a privately-held Milpitas, California-based provider of silicon ICs, SoCs, software, and IP for the professional video broadcast and IoT camera markets.
As previously announced on Monday, April 4, 2016, the cash and stock transaction was valued at approximately $54 million net based upon the average closing price of GigOptix stock for the trailing thirty day period ended April 1, 2016.
Effective today, April 6, 2016, GigOptix, Inc. has been renamed GigPeak, Inc. The renaming represents the broadening scope and capabilities of GigPeak, which brings together GigOptix’s leading high-speed enterprise networking connectivity portfolio with Magnum’s world-class expertise in video broadcasting, compression, and analytics to create a lead innovator of semiconductor ICs and software solutions for high-speed connectivity and high-quality video compression over the Network and the Cloud. The Company continues to trade on the NYSE MKT exchange under the symbol “GIG.”
“The acquisition of Magnum Semiconductor reflects a new chapter in our history, and serves as a significant step in realizing the promise of our initial roadmap and strategic plan we set out upon inception in April 2007 to expand GigOptix through inorganic and organic growth with the goal of reaching $100 million in annualized revenue within 10 years of our inception,” said Dr. Avi Katz, GigPeak’s Founder, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer. “GigPeak now has a significantly stronger financial foundation and larger product portfolio to further enhance our mission of enabling high-speed and high-quality information streaming end-to-end over the network, from the core to the consumer, while touching the cloud through the enterprise and the end customers. This expanded product base significantly increases our addressable market to nearly $5 billion as we launch GigPeak today. I am very excited about our future and believe GigPeak will continue to deliver even stronger financial results and meaningful shareholder value.”
Highlights of the Magnum Acquisition Include the Following Expectations:
- Immediately accretive to GigOptix FY 2016 financial results
When adding the 9 months of Magnum’s projected financial results left
in FY 2016, the GigPeak post acquisition outlook for FY 2016, compared
with GigOptix’s standalone results in FY 2015, includes:
- Revenue in the range of $60 million to $62 million, up approximately 50% from $40.4 million in FY 2015
- Non-GAAP gross margin to increase to a range of 69% to 71%, up from 65% in FY 2015
- Adjusted EBITDA margin to increase to a range of 27% to 29%, up from 25% in FY 2015
- Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share to be in a range of $0.22 to $0.24, up from $0.19 in FY 2015. The projected increase in FY 2016 earnings per diluted share accretion is in spite of an approximately 20% increase in share count through the acquisition of Magnum and the recently announced direct investment by PDSTI
- Enhances footprint utilization and reduces total cost of ownership of existing network pipes from the core to the end user
- Expands and further differentiates the GigPeak product portfolio and addressable markets, providing additional growth opportunities, and expanding the current GigOptix addressable markets of approximately $1 billion to nearly $5 billion by adding the broadcasting, IoT, and consumer markets
Terms and Structure of the Transaction
The acquisition was executed via a combination of stock and cash, issuing approximately 6.9 million shares and paying an additional approximately $36.2 million in net cash, a significant portion of which will be used to repay Magnum’s outstanding debt and other liabilities. The amounts to be paid are subject to customary adjustments. The purchase price of the acquisition was funded from a combination of cash on hand and incurrence of additional indebtedness through a $15 million term loan provided by Silicon Valley Bank.
