Entropic Communications Reports Second Quarter Results

Conference Call to be Webcast Today at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 3, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENTR), a leading provider of silicon and software solutions to enable connected home entertainment, today reported its second quarter results for the period ended June 30, 2011. Entropic reported second quarter net revenues of $61.5 million, a decrease of 14 percent compared with $71.5 million in the first quarter of 2011 and an increase of 51 percent compared to $40.7 million in the second quarter of 2010.

In accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company's second quarter net income was $7.8 million, or $0.09 per share (diluted). This compares with GAAP net income of $11.9 million, or $0.13 per share (diluted) in the first quarter of 2011.

Non-GAAP net income in the second quarter was $15.1 million, or $0.17 per share (diluted), compared to non-GAAP net income of $19.6 million, or $0.22 per share (diluted) in the first quarter of 2011.

"Our second quarter results came in below our expectations as we were impacted by lower demand associated with a change in inventory management by one of our large end customers," said Patrick Henry, president and CEO of Entropic Communications. "From a long-term outlook, we are operating from a position of strength, as we believe our core connected home entertainment technology — MoCA 2.0 — will be a key enabling technology for many U.S. and International pay-TV service provider networks. As the MoCA market moves from early adopters to mass market, we are seeing increased interest and demand by OEMs to deliver IP-based video solutions that will enable service providers to distribute the highest quality video and advanced Web services into and throughout the home, based on our MoCA-compliant solutions."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying tables contain the following non-GAAP financial measures: net income and net income per share. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effects on the Statement of Operations of, among others, all forms of stock-based compensation, non-cash acquired intangibles amortization, and the cash tax difference and their related effects on the number of diluted shares used in calculating non-GAAP income per share.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to manage the Company's business, including setting operating budgets and executive compensation plans. These non-GAAP measures are also used to (i) supplement the financial results and forecasts reported to the Company's board of directors, (ii) evaluate the Company's operating performance, (iii) compare the Company's performance to internal forecasts, and (iv) manage the Company's business and benchmarking performance internally. The non-GAAP measures have been made available to stockholders consistently in the past to provide transparency on how management manages the Company's operating performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP operating measures are useful to investors, when used as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating the Company's ongoing operational performance.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered in isolation or a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

(1) The Company's non-GAAP net income per share is calculated using the cash tax rate of 2% and 5% for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The estimated cash tax rate is the estimated tax payable on the Company's tax returns as a percentage of estimated annual non-GAAP pre-tax net income. The Company uses an estimated cash tax rate to adjust for the historical variation in the effective book tax rate associated with the reversal of valuation allowances, the utilization of research and development tax credits, and the utilization of loss carryforwards which currently have an overall effect of reducing taxes payable. The Company believes that the cash tax rate provides a more transparent view of the Company's operating results. The Company's effective tax rate used for the purposes of calculating GAAP net income for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011 was approximately 36% and 35%, respectively.
(2) During 2011, the Company changed its methodology for calculating non-GAAP net income per share by using the GAAP share count in the calculation of non-GAAP net income per share, and has reflected the effects of such change for all periods presented in 2011.
