SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct 23, 2003 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Synaptics (Nasdaq: SYNA), a leader in touch pads and other human interface solutions for mobile computing and communications devices, today reported financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2003.
Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2004 was $29.6 million, a 33% increase compared to $22.2 million for the first quarter of the prior fiscal year. Actual (GAAP) net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2004 was $2.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, which includes one-time restructuring costs and non-cash charges related to the amortization of intangibles and deferred stock-based compensation of $569,000, or $0.01 per diluted share. This represents an 89% increase from actual net income of $1.2 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the first quarter of the prior fiscal year.
"Our first quarter results exceeded our expectations, reflecting strong demand for our TouchPad products and record revenues for the quarter," stated Francis Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Synaptics. "The quarter was also highlighted by our fourth consecutive quarter of record unit shipments and strong bookings throughout the quarter, resulting in a record backlog of $19 million going into the December quarter. We also continue to see healthy levels of design activity for both notebook and non-notebook implementations of Synaptics' technology."
Russ Knittel, Synaptics' Chief Financial Officer, added, "Indicators point to continued strength in demand for notebook computers as we head into the seasonally strongest quarter of the year, and we are expecting a sequential revenue increase in the December quarter of 8% to 10%. We expect revenues in the March quarter to be down sequentially based on industry historical seasonal patterns, the extent of which will depend largely on sell-through rates in the December quarter."
