Integrated Device Technology Earnings Cheat Sheet for the First Quarter

Actual vs. Wall St. Expectations: IDTI reported adjusted net income of 12 cents per share. By that measure, the company beat the mean estimate of 10 cents per share. Analysts were expecting revenue of $153.5 million.
Quoting Management: “Our first quarter results were within our guidance range as strong demand from our computing end market was offset by weaker-than-expected demand from customers in our communications and consumer end markets,” said Dr. Ted Tewksbury, president and CEO of IDT. “Despite this weakness, we were able to deliver strong gross margins and earnings while improving cash flow and increasing the pace of our stock repurchase program.”
Last quarter marked the fifth consecutive quarter of gross margins expanding as the company’s gross margin expanded 1.8 percentage points to 53.7% from the year earlier quarter. Over that span, margins have grown on average 9.7 percentage points per quarter on a year-over-year basis.
A year-over-year revenue decrease last quarter snaps a streak of four consecutive quarters of revenue increases. The best quarter in that span was the first quarter of the last fiscal year, which saw revenue rise 36.5%.
The company has now topped analyst estimates for the last three quarters. It beat the mark by 2 cents in the fourth quarter of the last fiscal year and by one cent in the third quarter of the last fiscal year.
