International Rectifier Corporation (NYSE:IRF) today announced financial results for the second quarter (ended December 23, 2012) of its fiscal year 2013. Revenue was $223.8 million, an 11.4% decrease from $252.5 million in the prior quarter and a 2.7% decrease from $230.1 million in the prior year quarter. GAAP net loss for the second quarter was $32.7 million, or $0.47 per fully diluted share compared with GAAP net loss of $28.8 million, or $0.42 per fully diluted share, in the prior quarter and GAAP net loss of $6.3 million, or $0.09 per fully diluted share in the prior year quarter.
“We expected a challenging December quarter given industry conditions,” stated President and Chief Executive Officer Oleg Khaykin. “Although revenue declined, we significantly reduced our inventory, continued to reduce our costs and increased our cash balance by $16 million.”
GAAP gross margin for the second quarter was 21.9% compared with 27.9% in the prior quarter and 35.4% in the prior year quarter. GAAP operating loss was $34.7 million compared with an operating loss of $20.8 million in the prior quarter and an operating loss of $3.3 million in the prior year quarter.
Cash, cash equivalents and marketable investments increased $16 million and totaled $383.3 million at the end of the second quarter, including restricted cash of $1.6 million.
Cash provided by operating activities for the quarter was $41.9 million and free cash flow was $15.9 million.
The non-GAAP results the Company provides exclude the effects of accelerated depreciation, asset impairment and inventory write-offs associated with our El Segundo fab closure, restructuring costs, severance costs, impairment of goodwill, amortization of intangibles, the associated net tax effects of these items, and discrete tax provisions and benefits. The Company excludes any tax provisions (benefits) that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability.
A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the Company’s reported net income (loss), gross margin and operating income (loss) results in accordance with U.S. GAAP are set forth in the attached schedules below and on our web-site at www.investor.irf.com.
On this basis, non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter was $30.3 million, or $0.44 per fully diluted share compared with non-GAAP net loss of $13.9 million, or $0.20 per fully diluted share in the prior quarter and non-GAAP net loss of $2.6 million, or $0.04 per fully diluted share in the prior year quarter.
Non-GAAP gross margin for the second quarter was 22.2% compared with non-GAAP gross margin of 28.3% in the prior quarter and non-GAAP gross margin of 35.4% in the prior year quarter. Non-GAAP operating loss for the second quarter was $27.6 million compared with non-GAAP operating loss of $9.3 million in the prior quarter and non-GAAP operating loss of $0.9 million in the prior year quarter.
March Quarter Outlook
Oleg Khaykin noted: “Order trends are starting to improve across all of our end markets with the exception of computing. As a result, we currently expect revenue to range from $220 million to $235 million. Gross margin is expected to be between 22% and 23% mainly due to low factory utilization and the continued reduction of our inventory.
“The market indicators are showing encouraging signs that a bottom has formed and demand is slowly starting to improve. As demand returns into the summer, we would expect positive momentum from rising utilization, increasing turns and improving product mix,” concluded Mr. Khaykin.
The following table outlines International Rectifier’s current forward-looking March quarter outlook (on a GAAP basis):

This document contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements relate to expectations concerning matters that (a) are not historical facts, (b) predict or forecast future events or results, or (c) embody assumptions that may prove to have been inaccurate. These forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. When we use words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “will,” “outlook” or similar expressions, we are making forward-looking statements. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot give readers any assurance that such expectations will prove correct. The actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements as a result of numerous factors, many of which are beyond our control. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations include, but are not limited to, reduced demand or order cancellations arising from a decline or volatility in general market and economic conditions and the failure of the market to improve as anticipated; reduced margins from lower than expected factory utilization, higher than expected costs and customer shifts to lower margin products; changes in the timing or amount of costs associated with, or disruptions caused by, our restructuring initiatives; our ability to implement our restructuring initiatives as planned and achieve the anticipated benefits, which may be affected by, among other things: customer requirements, changes in business conditions and/or operational needs, retention of key employees, governmental regulations, delays and increased costs; unexpected costs or delays in implementing our plans to secure and qualify external manufacturing capacity for our products, including the purchase and installation of additional manufacturing equipment; the effects of longer lead times for certain products on meeting demand and any inability by us to satisfy or to timely satisfy customer demand; volatility or deterioration of capital markets; the adverse impact of regulatory, investigative and legal actions; increased competition in the highly competitive semiconductor business that could adversely affect the prices of our products or our ability to secure additional business; the effects of manufacturing, operational and vendor disruptions; unexpected delays and disruptions in our supply, manufacturing and delivery efforts due to, among other things, supply constraints, equipment malfunction or natural disasters; delays in launching new technology products; our ability to maintain current intellectual property licenses and obtain new intellectual property licenses; costs arising from pending and threatened litigation or claims; the effects of natural disasters; and other uncertainties disclosed in the Company’s reports filed from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its most recent reports on Forms 10-K and 10-Q.
(1) Net income (loss) per common share is computed using the two-class method as required by accounting rules. We do not pay dividends; however, net income must be allocated to unvested restricted stock units (“RSUs”) on which we could pay dividend equivalents. The amount of net income allocated to these RSUs is excluded from income available to common shareholders in the calculation of earnings per share. As we were in a net loss for the three months ended December 23, 2012, September 23, 2012, and December 25, 2011, we did not have any income to allocate to unvested RSUs on which we could pay dividend equivalents.
For the three months ended December 23, 2012, September 23, 2012, and December 25, 2011, revenue and gross margin by reportable segments were as follows (in thousands, except percentages):

(1) GAAP net income (loss) per common share is computed using the two-class method as required by accounting rules. We do not pay dividends; however, to properly calculate non-GAAP net income (loss) per common share, non-GAAP net income must be allocated to unvested restricted stock units (“RSUs”) on which we could pay dividend equivalents. The amount of non-GAAP net income allocated to these RSUs is excluded from income available to common shareholders in the calculation of earnings per share. As we were in a net loss for the three months ended December 23, 2012, September 23, 2012, and December 25, 2011, we did not have any non-GAAP income to allocate to unvested RSUs on which we could pay dividend equivalents.
We provide non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share amounts in order to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance. These supplemental measures exclude, among other things, accelerated depreciation, inventory write-offs related to fab closures, severance, impairment of goodwill, charges related to the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, the impact of asset impairment, restructuring and other charges. We also exclude tax provisions (benefits) that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability in addition to tax adjustments related to non-GAAP operating income (loss) adjustments.
We use non-GAAP measures to evaluate the performance of our core businesses and to estimate future core performance. Since we find these measures to be useful, we believe that investors will benefit from seeing non-GAAP measures in addition to seeing our GAAP results. This information facilitates our internal comparisons to our historical operating results as well as to the operating results of our competitors.
Our management recognizes that items such as amortization of intangibles and asset impairment, restructuring and other charges can have a material impact on our cash flows and/or our net income. Our GAAP financial statements including our statement of cash flows portray those effects. Although we believe it is useful for investors to see core performance free of non-GAAP adjustments, investors should understand that the excluded items can be expenses and charges that impact the Company’s total cash balance. To gain a complete picture of all effects on the Company’s profit and loss from any and all events, management does (and investors should) consider only the GAAP income statement and the other financial measures. The non-GAAP numbers focus instead upon the core business of the Company, which is only a subset, albeit an important one, of the Company’s performance, and should not be relied upon by investors.
Readers are reminded that non-GAAP numbers are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures. They should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. It should be noted as well that our non-GAAP information may be different (and contain different inclusions and exclusions as compared to GAAP information) from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies and therefore is not being provided for the purpose of comparisons with other companies.
