Financial Results for Fiscal Q2 Ended December 31, 2018

  • Revenue was $114.9 million, an increase of 10.6% from the same quarter
    last year driven by continuous gains in market share of our products.
  • Gross margin stayed healthy. GAAP gross margin was 25.7%, as compared
    to 27.0% from the same quarter last year, as we were ramping up
    production at Chongqing Joint Venture. Non-GAAP gross margin was
    29.2%, an increase of 180 basis point year-over-year as we continued
    to migrate to higher margin products.
  • Operating expenses increase reflected costs relating to the build-up
    of our digital power controller team and higher level of its R&D
    activities. GAAP operating expenses were $32.7 million. Non-GAAP
    operating expenses were $25.1 million, up 18% year-over-year.
  • GAAP operating loss was $3.2 million. Non-GAAP operating income was
    $8.5 million, a 17.0% growth year-over-year led by higher revenue and
    better gross margin.
  • GAAP loss per share attributable to AOS was $0.06. Non-GAAP earnings
    per share attributable to AOS was $0.30 compared to $0.32 in the same
    quarter a year ago.
  • Consolidated operating cash flow was $13.1 million, compared to $9.6
    million in the same quarter a year ago. Operating cash flow generated
    by AOS alone was $22.1 million, compared to $12.2 million in the same
    quarter a year ago.
  • The Company closed the quarter with $146.6 million of cash and cash
    equivalents, including $53.0 million cash balance at the Chongqing
    Joint Venture.

“We are pleased with our strong execution on business results as well as
our customer expansion. We achieved a year-over-year revenue increase of
10.6% representing the twelfth consecutive quarter of
growth. Furthermore, we continued to generate healthy operating cash
flow, which is funding our key growth initiatives,” stated Dr. Mike
Chang, chairman and CEO of the company.

“Despite current uncertainty in the overall semiconductor market, we are
very encouraged by our solid business pipeline driven by continuous
design wins with new and existing customers. We remain committed to our
near-term growth initiatives while relentlessly pushing ahead with our
long-term business plans.”

    of estimated expenses relating to the development of our digital power
    controller business. Non-GAAP operating expenses exclude $2.7 million
    of estimated share-based compensation charge and $4.4 million of
    estimated pre-production expenses relating to the Chongqing Joint
    Venture.
  • Tax expenses are expected to be in the range of $0.5 million to $0.7

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on
current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections of future
performance based on management’s judgment, beliefs, current trends, and
anticipated product performance. These forward-looking statements
include, without limitation, statements relating to expected growth
rate, our product portfolios, projected amount of revenue, gross margin,
operating income (loss), income tax expenses, net income (loss),
noncontrolling interest, and share-based compensation expenses, non-GAAP
gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, tax expenses, and non-GAAP
loss attributable to noncontrolling interest, our ability and strategy
to develop new products, including digital power controller products,
the ability to expand our sales and market share, increase our capacity
and achieve sustained growth and profitability, the pre-production and
production phases of our Chongqing Joint Venture, the development of
digital power business, partnership with global brands, the relationship
with key customers, business pipeline from design wins, and other
information under the section entitled “Business Outlook for Fiscal Q3
Ending March 31, 2019”. Forward-looking statements involve risks and
uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from
those contained in the forward-looking statements. These factors
include, but are not limited to, our ability to successfully operate our
joint venture in China; our ability to develop and succeed in the
digital power business; difficulties and challenges in executing our
diversification strategy into different market segments; new tariffs on
goods from China; ordering pattern from distributors and seasonality;
our ability to introduce or develop new and enhanced products that
achieve market acceptance; decline of PC markets; the actual product
performance in volume production; the quality and reliability of our
product, our ability to achieve design wins; the general business and
economic conditions; the state of semiconductor industry and seasonality
of our markets; our ability to maintain factory utilization at a
desirable level, and other risks as described in our SEC filings,
including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June
30, 2018 filed on August 23, 2018. Other unknown or unpredictable
factors or underlying assumptions subsequently proving to be incorrect
could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the
forward-looking statements. Although we believe that the expectations
reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot
guarantee future results, level of activity, performance, or
achievements. You should not place undue reliance on these
forward-looking statements. All information provided in this press
release is as of today’s date, unless otherwise stated, and AOS
undertakes no duty to update such information, except as required under
applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented
on a basis consistent with U.S. GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP
financial measures for our historical performance, including non-GAAP
gross profit, gross margin, operating income (loss), net loss
attributable to noncontrolling interest, net income (loss) and diluted
earnings per share (“EPS”). These supplemental measures exclude
share-based compensation expenses for all periods presented,
pre-production expenses related to Chongqing Joint Venture and
production ramp up costs for the quarter of December 31, 2018 and
September 30, 2018, as well as income tax benefit from tax reform for
the quarter ended December 31, 2017 in this press release. We also
disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures in our guidance for the
next quarter, including non-GAAP gross margin, operating expenses and
loss attributable to noncontrolling interest. These forecast
supplemental measures exclude estimated pre-production expenses and
production ramp-up costs relating to our Chongqing Joint Venture and
estimated share-based compensation expenses. We believe that these
historical and forecast non-GAAP financial measures can provide useful
information to both management and investors by excluding certain items
and expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results or do
not reflect our normal business operations, such as the joint venture
pre-production expenses. In addition, our management uses non-GAAP
measures to compare our performance relative to forecasts and to
benchmark our performance externally against competitors. Our use of
non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations in that the non-GAAP
financial measures we use may not be directly comparable to those
reported by other companies. For example, the terms used in this press
release, such as non-GAAP net income (loss) or non-GAAP operating
expenses, do not have a standardized meaning. Other companies may use
the same or similarly named measures, but exclude different items, which
may not provide investors with a comparable view of our performance in
relation to other companies. We seek to compensate for the limitation of
our non-GAAP presentation by providing a detailed reconciliation of the
non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP
measures both in the text in this press release and in the tables
attached hereto. Investors are encouraged to review the related U.S.
GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP
financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial
measures.
