SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct 23, 2008 /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, 2008. 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 2009 was $115.9 million, an increase of approximately 34% over $86.7 million in net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2008. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $14.0 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared with net income of $11.3 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2008. Net income, excluding non-cash charges for share-based compensation, was $17.9 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2009, compared with net income, excluding share-based compensation and non-recurring items, of $14.8 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2008.
"We posted record revenue and net income per diluted share for the first quarter, with revenue exceeding $100 million for the first time in our history," stated Francis Lee, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Synaptics. "Our growth strategies are clearly working as we achieve greater diversification across our target markets. While our business is not immune to market fluctuations and we are closely monitoring the current economic climate, we are well on track to achieving our third consecutive year of record revenue."
Russ Knittel, Synaptics' Chief Financial Officer, added, "Our backlog increased more than two-fold to a record $103 million entering the December quarter; however, some recent shifts in order patterns suggest cautiousness on the part of our OEM customers. Based on our current backlog and visibility, we anticipate revenue in the December quarter will be $135 million to $145 million, an increase of 37% to 47% over the comparable quarter last year. In light of the prevalent general concerns regarding the global economy, and taking into consideration our outlook for the first half and expectations for the remainder of fiscal 2009, we currently expect our revenue to grow 25% to 35%, up from our original estimate of 20% to 30%."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In evaluating its business, Synaptics considers and uses net income per share excluding share-based compensation and unusual or non-recurring items as a supplemental measure of operating performance. Net income excluding share-based compensation and unusual or non-recurring items is not a measurement of the Company's financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income. The Company presents net income excluding share-based compensation and unusual or non-recurring items because it considers it an important supplemental measure of its performance. The Company believes 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 unusual or non-recurring items. Net income excluding share-based compensation and unusual or non-recurring items has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the Company's GAAP net income. The principal limitations of this measure are that it does not reflect the Company's actual expenses and may thus have the effect of inflating its net income and net income per share.
