SANTA CLARA, Calif., August 23, 2011 – Inphi Corporation (NYSE: IPHI), a leading provider of high-speed analog semiconductor solutions for the communications and computing markets, today announced a revised business outlook for the second half of 2011.
On July 26, 2011, the company announced its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 and provided its business outlook for the third and fourth quarters of 2011. Since that time, the company has become aware of a likely further delay in shipping its next generation iMB™ and RDIMM products as well as a slower-than-anticipated rate of orders currently being booked by customers for the third quarter.
Although Inphi’s iMB products are qualified and ready for volume production, the company has concluded that due to industry events outside of its control, material production volume of these iMB products for LRDIMM for the next generation of server computing platforms will likely slip into next year. Inphi continues to believe that market demand and associated revenue growth related to the new LRDIMM and RDIMM products will be generated in 2012 along with the roll-out of customers’ introduction of next-generation computing platforms. Although the shift in volume shipments is disappointing, Inphi believes its products are strategically well positioned for future growth. In the meantime, the timing and success of Inphi’s component-based products will continue to be dependent on the schedules and successes of end-customer platforms utilizing these products.
Separately, the company has also decided to discontinue the sale of some acquired legacy products in Taiwan. The restructuring expense associated with achieving the ongoing cost savings will be reflected in this quarter’s GAAP financial statements. At this time, the company is in the process of transitioning the site to be a design-only center. Part of the transition will include an evaluation of the identifiable tangible assets (approximately $0.3 million at June 30, 2011) and the intangible assets (approximately $1.4 million at June 30, 2011) as well as goodwill (approximately $5.9 million at June 30, 2011) that might ultimately be abandoned in the process of converting the Taiwan site into a design-only center. The analysis required to complete the evaluation of these assets is expected to take approximately 30 to 60 days.
As a result of these conditions, Inphi is withdrawing its previous business outlook for the third quarter and prior expectations for sequential improvement in the fourth quarter as provided on July 26, 2011. The company is revising its outlook for the third quarter of 2011 as follows:
