  • Posted Non-GAAP Gross Margin of 46.3%, Up 330 Basis Points Sequentially and 1,090 Basis Points Year-over-Year
  • Guides Q1 2022 Revenue to be Up 160 to 170% Year-over-Year with Further Non-GAAP Gross Margin Expansion

ALISO VIEJO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$INDI #indiesemi–indie Semiconductor, Inc. (Nasdaq: INDI), an Autotech solutions innovator, today announced fourth quarter and year end 2021 results for the period ended December 31, 2021. Fourth quarter revenue was up 56 percent sequentially and 185 percent from the year ago period to a record $19.0 million, exceeding guidance and analyst expectations. Non-GAAP gross margin expanded 330 basis points sequentially and 1,090 basis points year-over-year to 46.3 percent, better than indie’s 45.0 percent guidance. On a GAAP basis, fourth quarter 2021 operating loss was $26.2 million compared to $6.9 million in the year ago period. Non-GAAP operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $12.7 million versus $5.5 million during the same quarter last year, reflecting increasing customer-driven R&D investments as well as public company infrastructure costs.

Full year 2021 revenue was up 114 percent year-over-year to $48.4 million with 2021 non-GAAP gross margin expanding to 43.7 percent, a 140 basis point improvement over the prior year.

indie delivered record fourth quarter and year end results fueled by growing demand for our highly innovative Autotech solutions,” said Donald McClymont, indie’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “Our outperformance reflects the strength of indie’s differentiated product portfolio coupled with crisp operational execution. At a higher level, indie is at the epicenter of several powerful automotive megatrends, including ADAS, connected car, user experience and electrification. Looking ahead, we believe our deeper investments and targeted acquisitions are setting the stage for accelerating growth in 2022 and positioning indie to become the leading provider of edge sensors spanning LiDAR, radar, ultrasound and vision applications.”

Q4 Business Highlights

  • Unveiled Surya™, a highly integrated LiDAR SoC augmented by TeraXion’s world class laser and sensing solutions
  • Expanded production of advanced lighting controllers to support multiple new automotive customers
  • Captured OnBrD™ telematics design wins at IOSix, a fleet information services provider
  • Commenced shipments of exterior lighting platforms with a leading German OEM
  • Awarded a vehicle security system program at a European Tier 1 supplier

First Quarter 2022 Outlook

We provide earnings guidance on a non-GAAP basis because certain information necessary to reconcile such guidance to GAAP is difficult to estimate and dependent on future events outside of our control. Please refer to the attached Discussion Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures in this press release for a further discussion of our use of non-GAAP measures, including quantification of known expected adjustment items.

Given new program ramps this quarter and throughout the year, we plan to substantially outpace our addressable markets and drive further gross margin expansion,” said Thomas Schiller, indie’s chief financial officer and executive vice president of strategy. “Specifically, for the first quarter, we anticipate revenue to be up 160 to 170 percent year-over-year and in the range of $21 to $22 million with non-GAAP gross margin of approximately 47 percent, putting indie on pace for another record quarter and a strong start to 2022. Further, with strengthening order visibility, demonstrated scalability and planned operating leverage, indie is increasingly well positioned to capitalize on the strategic Autotech market and translate our design win momentum into long-term shareholder value.”

Discussion Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our earnings release contains some or all of the following financial measures that have not been calculated in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”): (i) non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, (ii) non-GAAP operating loss, (iii) non-GAAP net income (loss), (iv) non-GAAP share count and (v) non-GAAP net loss per share. As set forth in the “Unaudited Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” table, we derive such non-GAAP financial measures by excluding certain expenses and other items from the respective GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to each non-GAAP financial measure. Management may use these non-GAAP financial measures to, amongst other things, evaluate operating performance and compare it against past periods or against peer companies, make operating decisions, forecast for future periods and to determine payments under compensation programs. These non-GAAP financial measures provide management with additional means to understand and evaluate the operating results and trends in our ongoing business by eliminating certain expenses and other items that management believes might otherwise make comparisons of our ongoing business with prior periods and competitors more difficult, obscure trends in ongoing operations or improve management’s ability to forecast future periods.

We provide investors with non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share because we believe it is important for investors to be able to closely monitor and understand changes in our ability to generate income from ongoing business operations. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures give investors an additional method to evaluate historical operating performance and identify trends, an additional means of evaluating period-over-period operating performance and a method to facilitate certain comparisons of our operating results to those of our peer companies. We further believe these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to assess the overall financial performance of our ongoing operations by eliminating the impact of (i) acquisition-related expenses (including acquisition-related professional fees and legal expenses, deemed compensation expense, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles and expenses recognized in relation to changes in contingent consideration obligations), (ii) gains or losses recognized in relation to changes in the fair value of the simple agreements for future equity (“SAFEs”), warrants and contingent considerations issued by indie, and unrealized gains or losses from currency hedging contracts (iii) non-cash interest expenses related to the amortization of debt discounts and issuance costs, (iv) share-based compensation, (v) gains and losses from extinguishment of debt and (vi) non-cash tax expenses. We believe that disclosing these non-GAAP financial measures contributes to enhanced financial reporting transparency and provides investors with added clarity about complex financial performance measures.

We do not report a GAAP measure of gross profit or gross margin because certain costs related to contract revenues are expensed as incurred and included in research and development expenses, and not in cost of sales, as it is not practicable for us to bifurcate these expenses. We derive and reconcile non-GAAP gross profit from the most relevant GAAP financial measures by subtracting cost of sales, adjusted for acquisition-related expenses, from revenue. We calculate non-GAAP operating loss by excluding from GAAP operating loss, any (i) acquisition-related expenses (including acquisition-related professional fees and legal expenses, deemed compensation expense, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles and expenses recognized in relation to changes in contingent consideration obligations) and share-based compensation. We calculate non-GAAP net income (loss) by excluding from GAAP net income (loss), any (i) acquisition-related expenses (including acquisition-related professional fees and legal expenses, deemed compensation expense, and amortization of acquisition-related intangibles and expenses recognized in relation to changes in contingent consideration obligations), (ii) gains or losses recognized in relation to change in the fair value of the simple agreements for future equity (“SAFEs”), warrants and contingent considerations issued by indie, (iii) non-cash interest expenses related to the amortization of debt discounts and issuance costs, (iv) share-based compensation, (v) gains and losses from the extinguishment of debt, and (vi) non-cash tax expenses. We calculate non-GAAP share count by adding to GAAP weighted average common shares outstanding: (i) Escrow Shares and (ii) ADK Minority Holders interest, which represents all shares issuable to vested minority equity interests held in Ay Dee Kay LLC upon exchange for indie Class A shares as described in the Form 10-Q. Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share is calculated by non-GAAP income (loss) divided by non-GAAP share count.

We exclude the items identified above from the respective non-GAAP financial measure referenced above for the reasons set forth with respect to each such excluded item below:

Acquisition-related expenses – including such items as, when applicable, amortization of acquired intangible assets, fair value adjustments to contingent consideration, fair value charges incurred upon the sale of acquired inventory, and acquisition-related professional fees and legal expenses because they are not considered by management in making operating decisions and we believe that such expenses do not have a direct correlation to our future business operations and thereby including such charges do not necessarily reflect the performance of our ongoing operations for the period in which such charges or reversals are incurred.

Share-based compensation – related to the non-cash compensation expense associated with equity awards granted to our employees. These expenses are not considered by management in making operating decisions and such expenses do not have a direct correlation to our future business operations.

Gain (loss) from change in fair values – because these adjustments (1) are not considered by management in making operating decisions, (2) are not directly controlled by management, (3) do not necessarily reflect the performance of our ongoing operations for the period in which such charges are recognized and (4) can make comparisons between peer company performance less reliable.

Non-cash interest expense – related to the amortization of debt discounts, warrants, and issuance costs because (1) these expenses are not considered by management in making decision with respect to financing decisions, and (2) these generally reflect non-cash costs.
