Xperi Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2017 Results

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Xperi Corporation (Nasdaq:XPER) (the "Company" or "we") today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

"Our results for the quarter were very good, with revenue at the high end of our outlook and Non-GAAP EPS exceeding expectations, driven by strength in our automotive business," said Jon Kirchner, CEO of Xperi. "The DTS integration is tracking to plan and we exited the second quarter at 90 percent of our annualized cost synergy target of 15 million dollars. As we continue to work towards resolving the Broadcom and Samsung matters, and ramp-up for the launch of various product licensing initiatives through the balance of the year, we believe we are well positioned to deliver on our strategic plans and growth objectives across the business."

1 The Company recorded an income tax provision of $26.6 million in Q2 2017 to reflect changes in the estimated annual book tax rate. The change in the income tax provision, caused by this rate change, increased the GAAP EPS loss by $0.73.

2 Purchase Accounting Impact represents receipts from contracts with customers that are not recorded as revenue due to purchase accounting rules, but which would have been recorded as revenue if not for the acquisition of DTS. Internally, management includes the cash flow impact from these contracts when evaluating the Company's operating performance, when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods, and when assessing the performance of its management team.

3 The year-over-year reduction in operating cash flow is primarily attributable to the following: the positive cash flow contribution from audio licensing offset by the absence of payments from a key IP Licensing customer, a late quarterly payment from a customer received shortly after the quarter end, interest expense from debt, and higher litigation expense.

4 Includes $8.5 million of restricted cash in Q2 2017.


On June 14, 2017, the Company paid $9.9 million to stockholders of record on May 24, 2017, for the quarterly cash dividend of $0.20 per share of common stock.

Additionally, on July 21, 2017, the Board of Directors approved a regular quarterly dividend of $0.20 per share of common stock, payable on September 8, 2017, to stockholders of record on August 18, 2017.

Recurring and IP Episodic Revenue

Recurring revenue is defined as revenue from a license agreement or other agreement that is scheduled to occur over at least one year of time. IP episodic revenue is Semiconductor and IP licensing business revenue payable within one year pursuant to a contract. IP episodic revenue includes non-recurring engineering fees, initial license fees, back payments resulting from audits, damages awarded by courts or other tribunals, and lump sum settlement payments.

Importantly, a source of IP episodic revenue may become a source of recurring revenue, when, for example, a company settles litigation with the Company by paying a settlement amount and entering into a license agreement that calls for an initial license fee and ongoing royalty payment over several years. In this scenario, the settlement amount would be episodic revenue, as would the initial license fee, and the ongoing royalties would be recurring revenue.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), the Company's earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures adjusted for discontinued operations, either one-time or ongoing non-cash acquired intangibles amortization charges, acquired in-process research and development, all forms of stock-based compensation, impairment charges on long-lived assets and goodwill, gain on sale of patents, restructuring and other related exit costs, and related tax effects. The non-GAAP financial measures also exclude the effects of FASB Accounting Standards Codification 718, "Stock Compensation" upon the number of diluted shares used in calculating non-GAAP earnings per share. Management believes that the non-GAAP measures used in this release provide investors with important perspectives into the Company's ongoing business performance. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated 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. All financial data is presented on a GAAP basis except where the Company indicates its presentation is on a non-GAAP basis.

Set forth below are reconciliations of non-GAAP net income (loss) to the Company's reported GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP earnings per share to GAAP earnings per share guidance for the third quarter of 2017.
