KFAR SAVA, Israel, April 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC), a leading provider of high-performance networking and data infrastructure solutions, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Silicom Ltd (PRNewsfoto/Silicom Ltd.)

Financial Results

Revenues for the first quarter of 2020 totaled $22.1 million compared with $30.2 million for the first quarter of 2019. This is at the higher end of the updated guidance provided on April 6, 2020, and is approximately 15% below earlier estimates provided in late January, prior to the global disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the quarter totaled $1.5 million, or $0.20 per share (basic and diluted), compared with $3.6 million, or $0.48 per share (basic and diluted) for the first quarter of 2019.

On a non-GAAP basis (as described and reconciled below), non-GAAP net income for the period totaled $2.3 million, or $0.31 per share (basic and diluted), compared with $4.0 million, or $0.52 per diluted share ($0.53 per basic share), for the first quarter of 2019. This is the Company's 61st profitable quarter.

Silicom's cash position as of the end of the quarter, which includes cash, cash equivalents, deposits and marketable securities and zero debt, totaled $79.9 million dollars (or $11.05 per outstanding share).

Share Repurchase Plan

In addition, the Company today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a new one-year share repurchase plan allowing the Company to invest up to $15 million to repurchase its ordinary shares. This plan will begin as soon as the previously-announced $15 million one-year share repurchase plan is completed. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend upon a variety of factors, including price and general business and market conditions. The share repurchase plan authorizes management to repurchase ordinary shares using a variety of methods, including open market purchases, all in compliance with the rules of the US Securities and Exchange Commission and other applicable legal requirements. Repurchases will be funded from available working capital. The share repurchase plan does not obligate Silicom to buy back any specific number of shares and may be suspended or terminated at any time at management's discretion.

Management notes that its cash balance provides sufficient working capital and financial flexibility to weather the current environment while completing the Company's current share buy-back program and carrying out this new share buy-back program.

Comments of Management

Shaike Orbach, Silicom's President and CEO, commented, "We are pleased to report our 61st consecutive profitable quarter despite the severe disruption associated with the global COVID-19 environment. As we noted earlier this month, 2020 was off to an excellent start before the pandemic took hold, slowing our supply chain and interrupting manufacturing and deliveries. Given the significant challenges inherent in the situation, we are pleased with our first quarter financial results.

"While short-term visibility is still very low, the fundamentals of our business remain intact, and we remain optimistic about our mid- and long-term prospects. The broadband boom that has been driven by the need to 'shelter at home' is actually creating a new urgency for telco and Cloud-player investments in new SD-WAN, NFV, Security and 5G networks, highlighting the importance of our enabling solutions. As a result, interest in our solutions remains high and we continue to make progress on high-potential new design wins.

"For example, we were recently chosen to supply $15 million worth of Intelligent Bypass solutions for a massive governmental infrastructure project, and the project's integrator expects additional similar projects over time."

Mr. Orbach concluded, "While it is too early to predict exactly when we will reach the 'new normal,' we are optimistic that it will be a reality in which networks and connectivity rise to even greater importance. With strong existing design wins and continued interest from some of the market's key players, we believe that we will benefit from several years of solid double-digit Compound Annual Growth Rate once the impact of the pandemic is behind us. Until the dust clears, our ongoing activities and cash position are strong enough to carry us past temporary challenges."
