Xperi Holding Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2020 Results

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Xperi Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: XPER) (the “Company” or “we”) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“This has been a very productive time for Xperi, as we closed our transformational merger with TiVo in June and have made significant progress on the integration and on our strategic and financial goals,” said Jon Kirchner, chief executive officer of Xperi. “We delivered solid results across our combined businesses, and we continue to see validation of our IP through key agreements, renewals, and favorable litigation decisions. We are beginning to realize the benefits of the added scale and diversification to our IP and Product platforms and believe Xperi is well positioned as a key provider of technology to enable more compelling experiences in the markets we serve.”

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights:

  • Completed the merger of Xperi Corporation and TiVo Corporation on June 1, 2020, to form Xperi Holding Corporation.
  • Billings for legacy Xperi of $93.4 million, above the high end of expectations.
  • Reported GAAP quarterly revenue, including only one month of TiVo operations post close, of $137.6 million.
  • Fully combined Adjusted Revenue, on a non-GAAP basis, of $234.8 million for the quarter (see definition of Adjusted Revenue below).
  • Repurchased $15 million of common stock under a new $150 million stock repurchase program.
  • Finished the quarter with $200 million in cash and investments.

Second Quarter 2020 Business and Recent Operating Highlights:

Product Business

As a result of the merger, the Company has divided the Product Business into three categories: Consumer Experience, Connected Car, and Pay-TV.

Consumer Experience business highlights:

  • Launched TiVo Stream 4K, which is selling at a more rapid rate than previous TiVo hardware launches.
  • Completed license for DTS:X immersive audio in a next generation game console scheduled for launch this Fall.

Connected Car business highlights:

  • Launched HD Radio on six new 2020 car models in North America.
  • Released the latest version of the Company’s Occupancy Monitoring System suite which includes child seat detection, occupant detection, emotion detection, and passenger authentication.

Pay-TV business highlights:

  • Signed a new license with a regional cable television provider converting them to our next generation IPTV platform.
  • Churn of subscribers using our solutions was less than 2% during the quarter, significantly lower than the Pay-TV industry average of 4-5%.

IP Licensing Business

IP Licensing business highlights:

  • Renewed and expanded an agreement with Verizon, one of the top five U.S. Pay-TV providers.
  • Expanded and extended an agreement with CommScope, one of the leading suppliers to the North America Pay-TV market.
  • Completed a new agreement with a leading social media platform, our third agreement in this space over the last year.
  • Completed a new agreement with Tower Semiconductor, a global leader in high-value semiconductor foundry solutions, for our ZiBond and DBI technologies.
  • Received a favorable initial determination in our most recent International Trade Commission (ITC) case against Comcast. The Administrative Law Judge ruled that Comcast’s X1 platform infringes on two Rovi patents and recommended the issuance of a limited exclusion order and a cease and desist order.

Capital Allocation

On May 27, 2020, legacy Xperi paid $10.1 million to stockholders of record on May 20, 2020, for a quarterly cash dividend of $0.20 per share of common stock.

Following the merger, Xperi’s new board reviewed the Company’s capital allocation policy and established a target to return approximately 50% of free cash flow to stockholders, consistent with historical levels. Additionally, the board determined to take a more balanced approach to capital allocation, providing for increased stock buybacks and debt paydown relative to cash dividends.

On June 12, 2020, the board authorized a stock repurchase program providing for the repurchase of up to $150 million of the Company’s common stock. During the quarter, the Company repurchased 1.1 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $13.92, for a total of $15 million.

On July 29, 2020, the board declared a dividend of $0.05 per share, payable on September 21, 2020, to stockholders of record on August 31, 2020.

Business Outlook

Going forward, the Company will provide its top-line outlook using revenue. The Company will not report billings, which had been legacy Xperi’s practice prior to the merger. Xperi’s semiconductor IP Licensing business is forecasted to have 2020 billings that are $70 million higher than revenue due to the application of ASC 606, of which $65 million occurs in the second half. This difference is due to fixed-fee semiconductor IP agreements where revenue was recognized in prior periods but continues to be billed in 2020. There is also an annual impact of $7 million reduction to revenue from purchase price accounting related to the merger, of which $5 million occurs in the second half.

The Company’s second-half 2020 outlook is as follows:

Notably, as a result of two significant semiconductor IP agreements executed in the first half of the year, and the related revenue being recognized from these customers during that period, the full year performance of the combined companies is weighted to the first half.

Management will provide more commentary around guidance for the Company on its earnings conference call at 2:00PM Pacific Time today.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements are based on the Company’s current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company’s financial results, forecasts, and business outlook, the benefits of the merger with TiVo and progress on integration efforts, and the Company’s anticipated capital allocation strategy. In this context, forward-looking statements often address expected future business, financial performance and financial condition, and often contain words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “could,” “seek,” “see,” “will,” “may,” “would,” “might,” “potentially,” “estimate,” “continue,” “expect,” “target,” similar expressions or the negatives of these words or other comparable terminology that convey uncertainty of future events or outcomes. All forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, and are not guarantees of future results, such as statements about the anticipated benefits of the transaction. These and other forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future results and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in such statements and, therefore, you should not place undue reliance on any such statements and caution must be exercised in relying on forward-looking statements. Important risk factors that may cause such a difference include, but are not limited to: challenges in integration of Xperi and TiVo operations after the merger, anticipated tax treatment, unforeseen liabilities, future capital expenditures, revenues, cost savings, expenses, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, losses, future prospects, business strategies, and expansion and growth of the Company’s businesses; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the recent merger with TiVo; the Company’s ability to implement its business strategy; pricing trends, including the Company’s ability to achieve economies of scale; the ability of the Company to retain and hire key personnel; potential adverse reactions or changes to business relationships resulting from the merger with TiVo; uncertainty as to the long-term value of the Company’s common stock; legislative, regulatory and economic developments affecting the Company’s business; general economic and market developments and conditions; the evolving legal, regulatory and tax regimes under which the Company operates; unpredictability and severity of catastrophic events, including, but not limited to, acts of terrorism or outbreak of war or hostilities, natural disasters, the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) or similar outbreaks or pandemics, and their effects on economic and business environments in which the Company operates, as well as the Company’s response to any of the aforementioned factors; the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an adverse impact on our business, results of operations, and financial condition will depend on future developments, including measures taken in response to the pandemic, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted; and any plans regarding a potential separation of the combined business. These risks, as well as other risks associated with the transaction, are more fully discussed in the Company’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. While the list of factors presented here is, and the list of factors presented in the Company’s filings with the SEC are, considered representative, no such list should be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements. Consequences of material differences in results as compared with those anticipated in the forward-looking statements could include, among other things, business disruption, operational problems, financial loss, legal liability to third parties and similar risks, any of which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial condition, results of operations, liquidity or trading price of common stock. The Company does not assume any obligation to publicly provide revisions or updates to any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, should circumstances change, except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws.

Billings

Billings reflect amounts in an accounting period invoiced to customers, less any credits issued to or paid to customers, plus amounts due under certain licensing-related contractual arrangements that may not be subject to an invoice. Billings may vary materially from revenue recorded under U.S. GAAP.

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 either one-time or ongoing non-cash acquired intangibles amortization charges; costs related to actual or planned business combinations including transaction fees, integration costs, separation costs, severance, facility closures and retention bonuses; all forms of stock-based compensation; loss on debt extinguishment; realized and unrealized gains or losses on marketable equity securities and associated tax effects. Management believes that the non-GAAP measures used in this release provide investors with important perspectives into the Company’s ongoing business and financial performance, and provide a better understanding of our core operating result reflecting our normal business operations. 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. 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 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 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. 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 the Company’s reported and forecasted GAAP to non-GAAP financial metrics.

Adjusted Revenue

Adjusted Revenue is a non-GAAP financial measure that reflects the combined revenue of legacy business operations of Xperi Corporation (“Xperi”) and TiVo Corporation (“TiVo”) for the periods presented. We calculate Adjusted Revenue as the sum of (i) GAAP revenue, (ii) revenue recorded by TiVo for the months of April and May 2020 prior to the effective date of the merger, and (iii) certain adjustments to revenue recorded by TiVo as a result of the application of purchase accounting to the merger. This information is derived from (1) previous public filings made by Xperi and TiVo prior to the merger, (2) the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, which reflects the Company’s revenue for the quarter (including revenue from TiVo recognized after June 1, 2020, the effective date of the merger) and (3) revenue based on TiVo’s financial reporting systems for the months of April and May 2020 covering the period after TiVo’s last public filing and prior to the effective date of merger. Adjusted Revenue is used by Xperi’s management and Board of Directors to evaluate financial performance of the combined company, including factors for setting and measuring performance impacting bonus incentives available to the Company’s employees. We believe Adjusted Revenue can provide investors with useful and important metrics in assessing the financial performance of core operations of the combined company without the impact of the merger, and to allow investors to analyze drivers of revenue on the same basis as the management of the Company. Adjusted Revenue does not reflect GAAP revenue and should not be construed by investors as a replacement for revenue as reported in accordance with GAAP.
