Gross margin, as a percentage of revenue, decreased to 45.8% for the second quarter of 2022, compared to 52.3% for the corresponding period a year ago, and increased from 42.6% for the first quarter of 2022.

Cash flow from operations totaled $10.8 million for the second quarter, compared to cash flow from operations of $12.3 million for the corresponding period a year ago, and cash flow from operations of $4.6 million in the first quarter of 2022. Capital expenditures for the second quarter totaled $14.2 million, compared to $6.5 million for the corresponding period a year ago and $22.7 million for the first quarter of 2022. The sum of cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments as of June 30, 2022 decreased 1.6% sequentially to approximately $207.6 million compared to approximately $211.1 million as of March 31, 2022.

Commenting on second quarter performance, Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Q2 revenues growth included 28% sequential growth in Advanced Products. To better serve our customers, our Operations team had to overcome component shortages and outsourced capacity bottlenecks, which precluded commensurate improvements in product margins. Vertically integrated capacity will enable revenue growth with substantially improved gross margins.”

“The Q2 book-to-bill ratio came in below 1, with one-year backlog standing at just over $400 million. We look forward to reducing production lead times and getting caught up with our backlog.”

“Capital investment into our first ChiP foundry continued in Q2 as our Andover fab, with its one million panels per year capacity, approaches completion. Scalable vertical integration of Advanced Products, including next generation current multipliers and converters, is key to increased market penetration in demanding AI and automotive applications.”
