Xperi Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: XPER) (the “Company” or “we”) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017.

“2017 was a year of change for our company and despite some challenges, we achieved a number of significant milestones which we believe will drive meaningful long-term shareholder value,” said Jon Kirchner, chief executive officer of Xperi. “We successfully completed the integration of Tessera and DTS, met our synergy targets, and now operate as one company. Importantly, we refined Xperi’s long-term strategy to better position us to drive long term growth, increased cash flow and enhanced shareholder value. Over the year, we generated $147 million in operating cash flow, returned approximately $55 million to shareholders in the form of dividends and stock repurchases, and paid down $100 million of debt just after year end.”

1 GAAP EPS for Q4 2017 reflects the impact of tax adjustments, primarily from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which increased the tax provision by approximately $6.3 million as compared to the estimate in the Company’s preliminary GAAP EPS disclosure on January 24, 2018. This adjustment reduced the Company’s earnings per share from the previous estimate of $0.24 per diluted share to $0.11 per diluted share.

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.

Stock Repurchase Program

During the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company repurchased approximately 269 thousand shares of common stock for an aggregate amount of $5.3 million. These purchases were executed under the Company's stock repurchase program. As of December 31, 2017, the Company had approximately $142.8 million remaining under its current repurchase program.


On December 13, 2017, the Company paid $9.9 million to stockholders of record on November 22, 2017, for the quarterly cash dividend of $0.20 per share of common stock.

Additionally, on February 1, 2018, the Board of Directors approved a regular quarterly dividend of $0.20 per share of common stock, payable on March 22, 2018, to stockholders of record on March 1, 2018.

Debt Repricing

On January 23, 2018, the Company completed a successful repricing of its Term B Loans, reducing its borrowing rate by 75 basis points, to a new rate of Libor plus 250 basis points. In connection with the repricing, the Company paid down $100 million of its outstanding debt.

Financial Guidance

Consequent with the introduction of the new revenue accounting standard, ASC 606, the Company announced it would begin using billings as a key measure of business progress. As a result, the Company’s outlook is now based on billings rather than revenue.
