SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov 01, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Synaptics (Nasdaq: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions for mobile computing, communications, and entertainment devices, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2007. The Company's GAAP results reflect the expensing of non-cash share-based compensation for all periods presented.
Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2008 was $86.7 million, an increase of approximately 58% over the $54.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2007. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2008 was $11.3 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, compared with net income of $4.1 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2007. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2008 included two non-recurring items resulting in a net charge of $1.3 million. Net income, excluding share-based compensation and non-recurring items, was $14.8 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2008, compared with $6.4 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2007.
"Fiscal 2008 is off to a strong start as we achieved record revenue in the first quarter and increased our net income 173% over the comparable quarter last year," stated Francis Lee, president and chief executive officer of Synaptics. "We continue to experience robust growth across our markets and ongoing momentum in new design activities to incorporate our intuitive, easy-to-use human interface solutions into next generation portable devices. We are pleased with our position within our target markets and are excited about the emerging new market opportunities we see for the adoption of our technology. We remain poised to deliver record revenue and profits in fiscal 2008."
Russ Knittel, the Company's chief financial officer, added, "Based on our backlog of $56.7 million entering the December quarter and anticipated new orders during the quarter, we expect revenue for our second fiscal quarter to be in the range of $96 million to $99 million, representing a 26% to 30% increase over the comparable period last year. This outlook is predicated on continued strong seasonal trends, with increased demand from both PC and non-PC applications. We expect revenue in the March quarter to be up 29% to 38% over the comparable quarter last year, assuming anticipated end market sell through in the December quarter and consumer demand relative to seasonal trends in the first calendar quarter of 2008."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In evaluating our business, we consider and use net income per share excluding share-based compensation and non-recurring items as a supplemental measure of operating performance. Net income excluding share-based compensation and non-recurring items is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income. We present net income excluding share-based compensation and non-recurring items because we consider it an important supplemental measure of our performance. We believe this measure facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by eliminating potential differences in net income caused by the existence and timing of non-cash compensation charges and non-recurring items. Net income excluding share-based compensation and non-recurring items has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for our GAAP net income. The principal limitations of this measure are that it does not reflect our actual expenses and may thus have the effect of inflating our net income and net income per share.
