  • GAAP Net Income of $33.5 million; Non-GAAP Net Income of $60.0 million - an increase of 53% and 73% over the same quarter last year, respectively

  • Generated GAAP net cash from operating activities of $56.6 million; Non-GAAP free cash flow of $41.2 million

(NYSE: MBLY) – Mobileye N.V., the global leader in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems ("ADAS") and autonomous driving technologies, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

"Mobileye delivered solid first quarter results, growing both revenue and net income by over 50% on a year over year basis while generating cash at a high conversion rate," said Ziv Aviram, co-founder, president and chief executive officer of Mobileye.  "Strategically, we added revenue visibility with new ADAS design wins, bolstered alliances with existing and new partners, and took a major step forward with our proprietary high-definition mapping product (REM™) by signing definitive collaboration agreements with several major automakers."

"The pending acquisition of Mobileye by Intel will combine best-in-class technologies from both companies and accelerate delivery of a comprehensive value proposition for the automotive industry, while delivering compelling cash value to our shareholders,"  Mr. Aviram noted.   

First Quarter 2017 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue:  Total revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was $124.7 million, compared to $75.2 million in the prior-year period, representing a 66% increase.  Within total revenue, original equipment manufacturing (OEM) revenue was $94.5 million, compared to $61.4 million in the prior-year period representing a 54% increase.  EyeQ chip volume increased to 2,032 thousand EyeQ units, compared to 1,322 thousand units in the prior-year period.  EyeQ Average Selling Price (ASP) per unit for the first quarter of 2017 was $45.1, up from $44.2 during the same period last year.  The increase in OEM revenues is the result of new launches and the roll-out of Mobileye technology to more models within existing programs compared to the same quarter last year.  After market (AM) revenue contributed the remaining $30.2 million of total revenue for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $13.8 million in the prior-year period representing a 188% increase. The increase in Aftermarket revenues is primarily the year-over-year effect of sequential revenue increases we experienced over the course of 2016.  

  • Net Income and Earnings per Share: GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2017 was $33.5 million, or $0.14 per diluted share. This compares to GAAP net income of $21.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted share for the prior-year period. GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2017 represents 26.9% of revenue compared to 29.1% for the prior-year period. GAAP results include share-based compensation expense, net of tax, of $19.9 million for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $12.8 million for the prior-year period. In addition, GAAP net income during the first quarter of 2017 included $6.5 million in expenses associated with the pending Intel transaction. The decline in profit margin is mainly the result of the incurrence of Intel transaction related expenses.

    Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2017 was $60.0 million, or $0.25 per share based on 238.9 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding.  This compares to non-GAAP net income of $34.7 million, or $0.15 per share based on 236.9 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding during the prior-year period.  Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2017 represents 48.1% of revenue, an increase in profitability compared to 46.2% for the prior-year period, which is the result of better gross margins and lower operating expenses as percentage of revenues.  Non-GAAP net income excludes share-based compensation expense, expenses associated with the pending Intel transaction during the first quarter of 2017, and the applicable income tax effect.  See the reconciliation information below for a more detailed discussion of this non-GAAP measure.

  • Cash and Cash Flow: As of March 31, 2017, Mobileye had cash and cash equivalents, restricted bank deposits, and marketable securities of $677.2 million, compared to $633.4 million as of December 31, 2016.

    Mobileye generated $56.6 million in net cash from operating activities for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $32.5 million for the prior-year period.  Mobileye generated $41.2 million in non-GAAP free cash flow for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $30.4 million for the prior-year period.  Free cash flow generation during this quarter reflects the payment of the $12.9 million purchase price of the land for our new headquarters, as well as $6.1 million of transaction related expenses incurred in connection with the Intel transaction.  Non-GAAP free cash flow represents GAAP net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures.  See the reconciliation information below for a more detailed discussion of this non-GAAP measure.

A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP measures has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release.  An explanation of the non-GAAP financial measures and how they are calculated is included below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."  Mobileye has updated its reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP net income taking into account the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") Staff guidance and added to the reconciliation the applicable tax effect on share-based compensation expense for all periods presented.

Acquisition of Land

In March 2017, Mobileye closed its purchase of land in Jerusalem, which we intend to use for the construction of a new R&D and innovation center (the "Mobileye Campus") that also will host our headquarters.  As a result of this transaction, Mobileye now owns 74% of the equity of a company called Azorei Kisalon ("Kisalon") formed to own the land.  This equity interest, together with a long-term lease agreement, and an agreement with the minority shareholders of Kisalon will enable us to build the Mobileye Campus.  Subject to receipt of the necessary regulatory approvals, we intend to begin construction, and intend to invest approximately $195 million in the development of the Mobileye Campus.

Suspension of Conference Calls and Guidance

As announced on  March 13, 2017, we entered into a purchase agreement with Intel Corporation ("Intel") and Cyclops Holdings, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel (the "Purchaser") pursuant to which the Purchaser will offer to purchase all of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of the Company, par value EUR 0.01 per share, for cash consideration (without interest and less applicable withholding taxes) of $63.54 per ordinary share (the "Offer"), as further detailed in the Tender Offer Statement and amendments filed by Intel with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Schedule 14D-9 filed by the Company and the Company's Notice of Annual General Meeting ("AGM").  The Company will hold the AGM on June 13, 2017.

In light of the pending transaction, the Company will not host an earnings conference call and will not provide guidance relating to its expected financial results for future periods.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains certain forward-looking statements.  Words such as "believes," "intends," "expects," "projects," "anticipates," and "future" or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.  These statements are only predictions based on the Company's current expectations and projections about future events.  You should not place undue reliance on these statements.  Many factors may cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from any forward-looking statement, including the risk factors and other matters set forth in the Company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2016.  The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this release, we provide financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP.  We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors as a supplement to GAAP measures.  We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures also provide additional tools for investors to use in evaluating our ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial results with those of other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. 

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or considered as an alternative to, operating income, net income, earnings per share or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.  Our non-GAAP measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other organizations because other organizations may not calculate non-GAAP measures in the same manner.  You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate.  A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.

Non-GAAP net income. To arrive at our non-GAAP net income, we exclude share-based compensation, expenses associated with the pending Intel transaction during the first quarter of 2017 and the applicable income tax effect from our GAAP net income.  We believe that this non-GAAP measure is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance for the following reasons:

  • We believe that elimination of expenses associated with the pending Intel transaction and share-based compensation and the applicable income tax effect is appropriate because the uniqueness of the expenses associated with the pending Intel transaction and treatment of share-based compensation expense item may vary for reasons unrelated to our overall operating performance. These items are mostly non-deductible expense.;
  • We use this non-GAAP measure in conjunction with our GAAP financial measure for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget, as a measure of operating performance and the effectiveness of our business strategies and in communications with our board of directors concerning our financial performance; and
  • We believe that this non-GAAP measure provides better comparability with our past financial performance, facilitates better period-to-period comparisons of operating results and may facilitate comparisons with similar companies, many of which may also use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP reporting.

Non-GAAP free cash flow.  We define non-GAAP free cash flow as GAAP net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures.  Non-GAAP free cash flow is important to reflect the cash that can allow us to pursue business strategies and opportunities and fulfill our goals.  A limitation of using non-GAAP free cash flow versus the GAAP measure of net cash provided by operating activities as a means of evaluating our company is that non-GAAP free cash flow does not represent the total increase or decrease in the cash balance from operations for the period because it excludes cash used for capital expenditures during the period.  Management compensates for this limitation by providing information about our capital expenditures on the face of the cash flow statement.
