Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 were a record $1.964 billion, up 25.1% from net sales of $1.569 billion in the prior year’s first fiscal quarter.

GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 was $507.2 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, up from GAAP net income of $252.8 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, in the prior year’s first fiscal quarter. For the first quarters of fiscal 2023 and fiscal 2022, GAAP net income was adversely impacted by amortization of acquired intangible assets associated with our previous acquisitions.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 was a record at $767.2 million, or $1.37 per diluted share, up from non-GAAP net income of $558.8 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, in the prior year’s first fiscal quarter. For the first quarters of fiscal 2023 and fiscal 2022, our non-GAAP results exclude the effect of share-based compensation, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, severance, and other restructuring costs, and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions including legal fees and expenses for litigation and investigations related to our Microsemi acquisition), professional services associated with certain legal matters, non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures and losses on the settlement of debt. For the first quarters of fiscal 2023 and fiscal 2022, our non-GAAP income tax expense is presented based on projected cash taxes for the applicable fiscal year, excluding transition tax payments under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP and GAAP results is included in this press release.

Microchip announced today that its Board of Directors declared a record quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of 30.1 cents per share, up 9.1% from the cash dividend paid last quarter and up 37.8% from the year ago quarter. The quarterly dividend is payable on September 2, 2022 to stockholders of record on August 19, 2022.

“We kicked off our fiscal 2023 on a strong note, delivering record revenue of $1.96 billion which exceeded the mid-point of our guidance range and marked the seventh consecutive quarter of record revenue,” said Ganesh Moorthy, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Year-over-year revenue growth of 25.1% was driven by robust demand across all of our product categories, which again outpaced the capacity improvements we implemented during the June quarter. We are progressing well toward our long-term profitability targets as non-GAAP gross margins improved to 67.1% and non-GAAP operating margins to 45.6% during the quarter. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share grew 38.4% from a year ago quarter to $1.37, which was at the high end of our guidance range.”

Mr. Moorthy added, “We ended the June quarter with our highest unsupported backlog ever, with well over 50% of this backlog being non-cancellable under our Preferred Supply Program (PSP). With our June quarter unsupported backlog being well ahead of the actual revenue we achieved in the quarter, we believe we are well positioned to continue to drive incremental revenue growth and profitability. We acknowledge that our strong internal indicators are subject to the uncertainty driven by macro factors. However, even if the macro environment were to have a more pronounced impact on us, we believe our business has a number of attributes within our control that should enable us to navigate a “soft landing” with continued strong free cash flow generation and operating margins.”

Steve Sanghi, Microchip’s Executive Chair, said, “Microchip’s Board of Directors approved a sequential increase in our dividend of 9.1%, to a record 30.1 cents per share. The dividend announced today represents a 37.8% year-over-year increase, and the board remains committed to an increasing cash return strategy. Given our strong cash flow generation during the June quarter, we are targeting to return $413.1 million to our shareholders in the September quarter through dividends and share repurchases.”

Eric Bjornholt, Microchip’s Chief Financial Officer, said, “Our strong cash generation capabilities have helped to aggressively pay down over $5.2 billion in debt over the past 16 quarters. This past quarter we reduced our net debt by another $293.3 million, and our net leverage dropped to 2.05. We are making excellent progress towards our net debt to adjusted EBITDA target of 1.5 times.”

Mr. Moorthy concluded, “Our backlog for the September quarter is strong and we have more capacity improvements coming into effect. Demand continues to outpace supply, and we also have considerable backlog requested by customers in the September quarter that currently cannot be fulfilled until later quarters, despite growing capacity from last quarter. We believe our Total Systems Solutions strategy, combined with our focus on key market megatrends, is driving stronger customer engagements resulting in share gains in the end markets we serve. Taking these factors as well as the economic backdrop into consideration, we expect net sales in the September quarter to be up between 3% and 7% sequentially. At the mid-point of our guidance for the September quarter, net sales would be 25% higher than the year-ago quarter.”

Microchip’s Highlights for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2022:

(1) See the “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section of this release for information regarding our non-GAAP guidance.
(2) We are not able to estimate the amount of certain Special Charges and Other, net that may be incurred during the quarter ending September 30, 2022. Therefore, our estimate of GAAP operating expenses excludes certain amounts that may be recognized as Special Charges and Other, net in the quarter ending September 30, 2022.
(3) The forecast for GAAP tax expense excludes any unexpected tax events that may occur during the quarter, as these amounts cannot be forecasted.
(4) Represents the expected cash tax rate for fiscal 2023, excluding any transition tax payments associated with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

  • Microchip’s inventory days in the September 2022 quarter are expected to be in the range of 127 to 132 days, compared to 127 days on June 30, 2022. Our actual inventory level will depend on the inventory that our distributors decide to hold to support their customers, overall demand for our products, and our production levels.
  • Capital expenditures for the quarter ending September 30, 2022 are expected to be between $130 million and $150 million. Capital expenditures for all of fiscal 2023 are expected to be between $500 million and $550 million. We continue to add capital equipment to maintain, grow and operate our internal manufacturing capabilities to support the expected growth of our business.

Under the GAAP revenue recognition standard, which we adopted on April 1, 2018, we are required to recognize revenue when control of the product changes from us to a customer or distributor. We focus our sales and marketing efforts on creating demand for our products in the end markets we serve and not on moving inventory into our distribution network. We also manage our manufacturing and supply chain operations, including our distributor relationships, towards the goal of having our products available at the time and location the end customer desires.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures: Our non-GAAP adjustments, where applicable, include the effect of share-based compensation, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, severance, and other restructuring costs, and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions including legal fees and expenses for litigation and investigations related to our Microsemi acquisition), professional services associated with certain legal matters, non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures and losses on the settlement of debt. For the first quarters of fiscal 2023 and fiscal 2022, our non-GAAP income tax expense is presented based on projected cash taxes for the fiscal year, excluding transition tax payments under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

We are required to estimate the cost of certain forms of share-based compensation, including employee stock options, restricted stock units, and our employee stock purchase plan, and to record a commensurate expense in our income statement. Share-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is affected by the price of our stock at the date of grant. The price of our stock is affected by market forces that are difficult to predict and are not within the control of management. Our other non-GAAP adjustments are either non-cash expenses, unusual or infrequent items, or other expenses related to transactions. Management excludes all of these items from its internal operating forecasts and models.

We are using non-GAAP operating expenses in dollars, including non-GAAP research and development expenses and non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP other expense, net, and non-GAAP income tax rate, which exclude the items noted above, as applicable, to permit additional analysis of our performance.

Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they enhance the understanding of our historical financial performance and comparability between periods. Many of our investors have requested that we disclose this non-GAAP information because they believe it is useful in understanding our performance as it excludes non-cash and other charges that many investors feel may obscure our underlying operating results. Management uses non-GAAP measures to manage and assess the profitability of our business and for compensation purposes. We also use our non-GAAP results when developing and monitoring our budgets and spending. Our determination of these non-GAAP measures might not be the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it should not be construed as a substitute for amounts determined in accordance with GAAP. There are limitations associated with using these non-GAAP measures, including that they exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance. Management compensates for this by presenting information on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for investors and providing reconciliations of the GAAP and non-GAAP results.

Generally, gross margin fluctuates over time, driven primarily by the mix of products sold and licensing revenue; variances in manufacturing yields; fixed cost absorption; wafer fab loading levels; costs of wafers from foundries; inventory reserves; pricing pressures in our non-proprietary product lines; and competitive and economic conditions. Operating expenses fluctuate over time, primarily due to net sales and profit levels.

Diluted Common Shares Outstanding can vary for, among other things, the trading price of our common stock, the exercise of options or vesting of restricted stock units, the potential for incremental dilutive shares from our convertible debentures (additional information regarding our share count is available in the investor relations section of our website under the heading “Supplemental Financial Information”), and repurchases or issuances of shares of our common stock. The diluted common shares outstanding presented in the guidance table above assumes an average Microchip stock price in the September 2022 quarter between $65 and $70 per share (however, we make no prediction as to what our actual share price will be for such period or any other period and we cannot estimate what our stock option exercise activity will be during the quarter).
