GAAP net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 were a record $1.569 billion, up 19.8% from net sales of $1.310 billion in the prior year's first fiscal quarter.

GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 was $252.8 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, up from GAAP net income of $123.6 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, in the prior year's first fiscal quarter. For the first quarters of fiscal 2022 and fiscal 2021, GAAP net income was significantly adversely impacted by purchase accounting adjustments associated with our acquisitions.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 was a record at $558.8 million, or $1.98 per diluted share, up from non-GAAP net income of $401.9 million, or $1.56 per diluted share, in the prior year's first fiscal quarter. For the first quarters of fiscal 2022 and fiscal 2021, our non-GAAP results exclude the effect of share-based compensation, COVID-19 shelter-in-place restrictions on manufacturing activities, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, severance and other restructuring costs, and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions including legal fees and expenses for litigation and investigations related to our Microsemi acquisition), professional services associated with certain legal matters, IT security remediation costs, non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures, losses on the settlement of debt, and gains related to equity investments. For the first quarters of fiscal 2022 and fiscal 2021, our non-GAAP income tax expense is presented based on projected cash taxes for the applicable fiscal year, excluding transition tax payments under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP and GAAP results is included in this press release.

Microchip announced today that its Board of Directors has declared a record quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of 43.7 cents per share, up 5.8% from the cash dividend paid last quarter and up 18.75% from a year ago quarter. The quarterly dividend is payable on September 3, 2021 to stockholders of record on August 20, 2021.

"Our June quarter results continued to be strong leading off our fiscal year 2022 on a positive note," said Ganesh Moorthy, President and Chief Executive Officer. "June quarter revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating margin, and non-GAAP EPS were all records, as every key aspect of our business over-performed our guidance. Our September 2021 quarter guidance essentially completes our journey towards our long-term operating model of 65% non-GAAP gross margin and 42% non-GAAP operating margin. We expect to update our long-term business model later this year."

Mr. Moorthy added, "Business conditions remained exceptionally strong through the June quarter with record bookings and backlog for product to be shipped over multiple quarters, accentuated by our Preferred Supply Program which continues to be greater than 50% of our aggregate backlog and 100% of our backlog in the most constrained capacity areas. Demand outpaced the capacity improvements we implemented during the June quarter resulting in our unsupported backlog continuing to climb and our lead times stretching out."

Steve Sanghi, Microchip's Executive Chair, said, "Microchip's Board of Directors initiated a path to higher dividends in our February 2021 dividend announcement with a sequential increase in our dividend of 5.8% and followed that up with a dividend increase of 5.9% with our May 2021 dividend announcement. We are continuing on this path as we announced today that the Board of Directors has approved a sequential increase in our dividend of 5.8%, which represents an 18.75% year-over-year increase, to 43.7 cents per share, up from our May dividend of 41.3 cents. We expect to continue to increase dividends quarterly as part of our cash return strategy."

Eric Bjornholt, Microchip's Chief Financial Officer, said, "We continued to aggressively pay down our debt with another $388.0 million of payments during the June quarter, reflecting a cumulative debt pay down of $3.99 billion over the past 12 quarters, as we have actively managed the working capital requirements for the business. In the June quarter, we issued a $1 billion senior secured note maturing on September 1, 2024 and bearing interest at 0.983%. We used the proceeds from this bond offering to repay a $1 billion senior secured note that matured on June 1, 2021 that had an interest rate of 3.922%. We believe this is another excellent transaction for us as we continue to enhance our capital structure on our path to becoming an investment grade rated company."

Mr. Moorthy concluded, "Our backlog for the September quarter is very strong. In addition, we have considerable backlog requested by customers in the September quarter that currently cannot be fulfilled until later quarters despite us growing capacity from the last quarter. This is because the entire semiconductor supply chain remains constrained. Given this backdrop, we expect our net sales in the September quarter to be up between 3% and 7% sequentially. At the mid-point of our guidance for the September quarter, net sales will be 25.8% higher than the year ago quarter."

Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2022 Outlook:

The following statements are based on current expectations. These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially. We are not able to predict whether inventory at our distributors will increase or decrease during the quarter and are therefore providing a range of GAAP net sales guidance. In recent years, we have seen net inventory at our distributors increase or decrease by a significant amount in a single quarter.

(2)We are not able to estimate the amount of certain Special Charges and Other, net that may be incurred during the quarter ending September 30, 2021. Therefore, our estimate of GAAP operating expenses excludes certain amounts that may be recognized as Special Charges and Other, net in the quarter ending September 30, 2021.
(3)The forecast for GAAP tax expense excludes any unexpected tax events that may occur during the quarter, as these amounts cannot be forecasted.
(4)Represents expected cash tax rate for fiscal 2022 excluding any transition tax payments associated with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
  • Microchip's inventory days in the September 2021 quarter are expected to be in the range of 106 to 112 days, compared to 111 days at June 30, 2021. Our actual inventory level will depend on the inventory that our distributors decide to hold to support their customers, overall demand for our products and our production levels.

  • Capital expenditures for the quarter ending September 30, 2021 are expected to be between $75 million and $95 million. Capital expenditures for all of fiscal 2022 are expected to be between $300 million and $350 million. We continue to add capital equipment to maintain, grow and operate our internal manufacturing operations to support the expected growth of our business.

Under the GAAP revenue recognition standard which we adopted on April 1, 2018, we are required to recognize revenue when control of the product changes from us to a customer or distributor. We focus our sales and marketing efforts on creating demand for our products in the end markets we serve and not on moving inventory into our distribution network. Therefore, the elements of our internal performance and executive and employee compensation metrics that are based on sales and operating results are measured using the value of the end-market demand for our products. We use end-market demand for these purposes because we do not believe that the underlying value of our business benefits from increases in the value of inventory that is held in the supply chain. As many of our products are designed into customer applications with relatively long lives, such value is only realized when the end-market demand is created and the supply chain sells the inventory to the end customer. We define end-market demand as the net dollar amount of our products, licensing revenue and other services delivered to our direct (non-distributor) customers and by our distributors to their customers. We are able to calculate end-market demand based on information that our distributors provide us about their product shipments to their customers and inventory holdings. The value of end-market demand from our distributors is calculated as the net transaction value of these shipments. We believe that our end-market demand metric reflects true end-market demand based on when product is sold to direct customers or by our distributors to an end customer. We believe the use of end-market demand is also important to investors and users of our financial statements as it reflects the final outcome of our sales activities whereas our GAAP net sales are based on estimates made earlier in (or before the end of) the process of creating and fulfilling demand is complete. We also manage our manufacturing and supply chain operations, including our distributor relationships, towards the goal of having our products available at the time and location the end customer desires. Management uses end-market demand to manage and assess the profitability of our business and when developing and monitoring our budgets and spending. Many of our investors have requested that we disclose end-market demand metric because they believe it is useful in understanding our performance as it provides better information regarding end-market demand for our products. Therefore, we believe that it is useful to investors for us to disclose end-market demand. Our determination of end-market demand metric might not be the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures: Our non-GAAP adjustments, where applicable, include the effect of share-based compensation, COVID-19 shelter-in-place restrictions on manufacturing activities, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, severance and other restructuring costs, and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions including legal fees and expenses for litigation and investigations related to our Microsemi acquisition), professional services associated with certain legal matters, IT security remediation costs, non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures, losses on the settlement of debt, and gains related to equity investments. For the first quarters of fiscal 2022 and fiscal 2021, our non-GAAP income tax expense is presented based on projected cash taxes for the fiscal year, excluding transition tax payments under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

We are required to estimate the cost of certain forms of share-based compensation, including employee stock options, restricted stock units and our employee stock purchase plan, and to record a commensurate expense in our income statement. Share-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is affected by the price of our stock at the date of grant. The price of our stock is affected by market forces that are difficult to predict and are not within the control of management. Our other non-GAAP adjustments are either non-cash expenses, unusual or infrequent items or other expenses related to transactions. Management excludes all of these items from its internal operating forecasts and models.

We are using non-GAAP operating expenses in dollars including non-GAAP research and development expenses and non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP other expense, net, and non-GAAP income tax rate, which exclude the items noted above, as applicable, to permit additional analysis of our performance.

Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they enhance the understanding of our historical financial performance and comparability between periods. Many of our investors have requested that we disclose this non-GAAP information because they believe it is useful in understanding our performance as it excludes non-cash and other charges that many investors feel may obscure our underlying operating results. Management uses non-GAAP measures to manage and assess the profitability of our business and for compensation purposes. We also use our non-GAAP results when developing and monitoring our budgets and spending. Our determination of these non-GAAP measures might not be the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it should not be construed as a substitute for amounts determined in accordance with GAAP. There are limitations associated with using these non-GAAP measures, including that they exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance. Management compensates for this by presenting information on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for investors and providing reconciliations of the GAAP and non-GAAP results.

Generally, gross margin fluctuates over time, driven primarily by the mix of products sold and licensing revenue; variances in manufacturing yields; fixed cost absorption; wafer fab loading levels; costs of wafers from foundries; inventory reserves; pricing pressures in our non-proprietary product lines; and competitive and economic conditions. Operating expenses fluctuate over time, primarily due to net sales and profit levels.

Diluted Common Shares Outstanding can vary for, among other things, the trading price of our common stock, the exercise of options or vesting of restricted stock units, the potential for incremental dilutive shares from our convertible debentures (additional information regarding our share count is available in the investor relations section of our website under the heading "Supplemental Financial Information"), and repurchases or issuances of shares of our common stock. The diluted common shares outstanding presented in the guidance table above assumes an average Microchip stock price in the September 2021 quarter between $140 and $150 per share (however, we make no prediction as to what our actual share price will be for such period or any other period and we cannot estimate what our stock option exercise activity will be during the quarter).
