Allegro MicroSystems Announces Results for the Third Fiscal Quarter Ended December 25, 2020

--End Market Recovery Driving Strong Outlook--

Manchester, New Hampshire, UNITED STATES


MANCHESTER, N.H., Feb. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. (“Allegro” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq:ALGM), a global leader in power and sensing semiconductor solutions for motion control and energy efficient systems, today announced financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended December 25, 2020. Total net sales of $164.4 million for the three-month period exceeded expectations, increasing 20% from the prior quarter and, for our core end markets only, up 21% from the same period in fiscal 2020. GAAP loss per share was $0.04. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which excludes one-time and certain non-cash items, was $0.13, also exceeding expectations.

“We benefited in the third fiscal quarter from the strong recovery in automotive, continued strength in industrial and solid operational execution. With this meaningful step up in revenue, we are well ahead of forecasts while delivering margin improvement,” said Ravi Vig, President and CEO of Allegro MicroSystems. “Good visibility and unprecedented bookings and backlog give us confidence in delivering another record quarter in fiscal Q4. With progress on our manufacturing efficiency initiatives and strong momentum in our design funnel, we believe we are well positioned to deliver on our long-term growth and profitability objectives.”

Business Summary

Automotive total net sales were up 27% sequentially during the third fiscal quarter driven by global auto production recovery and restocking across the automotive supply chain. ADAS and xEV, strategic investment areas for the Company, represented approximately one third of the automotive business and continue to exceed the long-term growth rates of foundational automotive business in internal combustion engine (ICE) and Safety, Comfort and Convenience. ICE applications represented a significant portion of the automotive upside in fiscal third quarter, growing double digits compared to both the prior period and the same period in fiscal 2020.

Industrial total net sales in the third quarter were up 11% year-over-year compared to the prior year fiscal period and were up 9% from the prior quarter. Within industrial, broad-based revenue, which includes a variety of end applications and customers, increased by nearly 50% from the prior period. The Company’s “Other” business also increased compared to the prior period by 5%.

Business Outlook

For the fourth fiscal quarter ending March 26, 2021, the Company expects total net sales to increase and be in the range of $165 million to $169 million. Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be in the range of 50% to 51%, and non-GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share for the same period is expected to be in the range of $0.13 to $0.15.

Allegro has not provided a reconciliation of its fourth fiscal quarter outlook for non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share because estimates of all of the reconciling items cannot be provided without unreasonable efforts. It is difficult to reasonably provide a forward-looking estimate between such forward-looking non-GAAP measures and the comparable forward-looking GAAP measures. Certain factors that are materially significant to Allegro’s ability to estimate these items are out of its control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted.

Earnings Webcast

A webcast will be held on Tuesday, February 2, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time. Ravi Vig, Chief Executive Officer and Paul Walsh, Chief Financial Officer, will discuss Allegro’s financial results.

The webcast will be available on the Investor Relations section of the company’s website at investors.allegromicro.com. A recording of the webcast will be posted in the same location shortly after the call concludes and will be available for at least 30 days.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the measures presented in our consolidated financial statements, we regularly review other metrics, defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC, to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends, prepare financial forecasts and make strategic decisions. The key metrics we consider are non-GAAP Gross Profit, non-GAAP Gross Margin, non-GAAP Operating Expenses, non-GAAP Operating Income, non-GAAP Operating Margin, non-GAAP Profit before Tax, non-GAAP Provision for Income Tax, non-GAAP Net Income, non-GAAP Net Income per Share, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin (collectively, “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”). These Non-GAAP Financial Measures provide supplemental information regarding our operating performance on a non-GAAP basis that excludes certain gains, losses and charges of a noncash nature or that occur relatively infrequently and/or that management considers to be unrelated to our core operations, and in the case of non-GAAP Provision for Income Tax, management believes that this non-GAAP measure of income taxes provides it with the ability to evaluate the non-GAAP Provision for Income Taxes across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of special items and discrete items, which may vary in size and frequency. By presenting these Non-GAAP Financial Measures, we provide a basis for comparison of our business operations between periods by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance, and we believe that investors’ understanding of our performance is enhanced by our presenting these Non-GAAP Financial Measures, as they provide a reasonable basis for comparing our ongoing results of operations. Management believes that tracking and presenting these Non-GAAP Financial Measures provides management and the investment community with valuable insight into matters such as our ongoing core operations and the underlying business trends that are affecting our performance. These Non-GAAP Financial Measures are used by both management and our board of directors, together with the comparable GAAP information, in evaluating our current performance and planning our future business activities. We believe that these Non-GAAP Financial Measures, when used in conjunction with our GAAP financial information, also allow investors to better evaluate our financial performance in comparison to other periods and to other companies in our industry.

These Non-GAAP Financial Measures have significant limitations as analytical tools. Some of these limitations are that:

  • such measures do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • such measures exclude certain costs which are important in analyzing our GAAP results;
  • such measures do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • such measures do not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;
  • such measures do not reflect our tax expense or the cash requirements to pay our taxes; although depreciation and amortization are noncash charges excluded from our non-GAAP results, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future;
  • such measures do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
  • other companies in our industry may calculate such measures differently than we do, thereby further limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

These Non-GAAP Financial Measures are supplemental measures of our performance that are neither required by, nor presented in accordance with, GAAP. These Non-GAAP Financial Measures should not be considered as substitutes for GAAP financial measures such as gross profit, gross margin, net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. Also, in the future we may incur expenses or charges such as those added back in the calculation of these Non-GAAP Financial Measures. Our presentation of these Non-GAAP Financial Measures should not be construed as an inference that future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items.

Our prior disclosure referred to non-GAAP Gross Profit and non-GAAP Gross Margin as Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Gross Margin, respectively. No changes have been made to how we calculate these measures.

Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Non-GAAP Gross Margin

We calculate non-GAAP Gross Profit and non-GAAP Gross Margin excluding the items below from cost of goods sold in applicable periods. We calculate non-GAAP Gross Margin as non-GAAP Gross Profit divided by total net sales.

  • PSL and Sanken Distribution Agreement – Represents the elimination of inventory cost amortization and foundry service payment related to one-time costs incurred in connection with the PSL Divestiture.
  • Stock-based compensation – Represents noncash expenses arising from the grant of stock awards.
  • AMTC Facility consolidation one-time costs – Represents one-time costs incurred in connection with closing of the AMTC Facility and transitioning of test and assembly functions to the AMPI Facility announced and initiated in fiscal year 2020, consisting of moving equipment between facilities, contract terminations and other non-recurring charges. The closure and transition of the AMTC Facility is expected to be substantially complete by the end of March 2021. These costs are in addition to, and not duplicative of, the adjustments noted in note (*) below.
  • Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets – Represents noncash expenses associated with the amortization of intangible assets in connection with the acquisition of Voxtel, Inc., which closed in August 2020.
  • COVID-19 related expenses – Represents expenses attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic primarily related to increased purchases of masks, gloves and other protective materials, and overtime premium compensation paid for maintaining 24-hour service at the AMPI Facility.

(*) Non-GAAP Gross Profit and the corresponding calculation of non-GAAP Gross Margin in this release do not include adjustments consisting of:

  • Additional AMTC related costs – Represents costs related to the closing of the AMTC Facility and the transitioning of test and assembly functions to the AMPI Facility in the Philippines announced in fiscal year 2020 consisting of: the net savings expected to result from the capacity transition to the AMPI Facility, which facility had duplicative capacity based on the buildouts of the AMPI Facility in fiscal years 2019 and 2018. The elimination of these costs did not reduce our production capacity and therefore did not have direct effects on our ability to generate revenue. The closure and transition of the AMTC Facility is expected to be substantially complete by the end of March 2021.
  • Out of period adjustment for depreciation expense of giant magnetoresistance assets (“GMR assets”) – Represents a one-time depreciation expense related to the correction of an immaterial error, related to 2017, for certain manufacturing assets that have reached the end of their useful lives.
  • Labor savings – Represents salary and benefit costs related to employees whose positions were eliminated through voluntary separation programs or other reductions in force (not associated with the closure of the AMTC Facility or any other plant or facility) and a restructuring of overhead positions from high-cost to low-cost jurisdictions net of costs for newly hired employees in connection with such restructuring.

Non-GAAP Operating Expenses, non-GAAP Operating Income and non-GAAP Operating Margin

We calculate non-GAAP Operating Expenses and non-GAAP Operating Income excluding the same items excluded above to the extent they are classified as operating expenses, and also excluding the items below in applicable periods. We calculate non-GAAP Operating Margin as non-GAAP Operating Income divided by total net sales.

  • Transaction fees – Represents transaction-related legal and consulting fees incurred primarily in connection with (i) the unsuccessful acquisition of a competitor in fiscal year 2019, (ii) the acquisition of Voxtel, Inc. in fiscal year 2020, and (iii) the PSL Divestiture and the transfer of the Sanken products distribution business to PSL in fiscal year 2020.
  • Severance – Represents severance costs associated with (i) labor savings initiatives to manage overall compensation expense as a result of the declining sales volume during the applicable period, including a voluntary separation incentive payment plan for employees near retirement and a reduction in force and (ii) the closing of the AMTC Facility and the transitioning of test and assembly functions to the AMPI Facility announced and initiated in fiscal year 2020.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

We calculate EBITDA as net income minus interest income (expense), tax provision, and depreciation and amortization expenses. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA excluding the same items excluded above and also excluding the items below in applicable periods. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by total net sales.

  • Non-core (gain) loss on sale of equipment – Represents non-core miscellaneous losses and gains on the sale of equipment.
  • Miscellaneous legal judgment charge – Represents a one-time charge associated with the final payment of the previously accrued amount payable with respect to a VAT dispute related to the construction of the AMPI Facility.
  • Foreign currency translation loss (gain) – Represents losses and gains resulting from the remeasurement and settlement of intercompany debt and operational transactions, as well as transactions with external customers or vendors denominated in currencies other than the functional currency of the legal entity in which the transaction is recorded.
  • Income in earnings of equity investment – Represents our equity method investment in PSL.
  • Inventory cost amortization – Represents intercompany inventory transactions incurred from purchases made from PSL in fiscal year 2020. Such costs are one-time incurred expenses impacting our operating results during fiscal year 2021 following the PSL Divestiture. Such costs are not expected to have a continuing impact on our operating results after our second fiscal quarter of fiscal year 2021.
  • Foundry service payment – Represents foundry service payments incurred under our Price Support Agreement with PSL in respect to the guaranteed capacity at PSL to support our production forecast and are one-time costs incurred impacting our operating results during fiscal year 2021 following the PSL Divestiture. Such costs are not expected to have a continuing impact on our operating results after fiscal year 2021.

Non-GAAP Profit before Tax

We calculate non-GAAP Profit before Tax as Profit before Tax excluding the same items excluded above and also excluding the items below in applicable periods.

  • Loss on debt extinguishment – Represents one-time costs representing deferred financing costs associated with the $300.0 million of our term loan facility repaid during the nine-month period ended December 25, 2020.
  • Interest on repaid portion of term loan facility – Represents interest expense associated with the $300.0 million of our term loan facility repaid during the period.
