Fourth quarter and full year financial results will be discussed later today at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, during management’s quarterly investor conference call. The details for the call are presented below.

Revenues for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020 totaled $84.3 million, a 33.5% increase from $63.1 million for the corresponding period a year ago, and a 7.9% sequential increase from $78.1 million for the third quarter of 2020.

Gross margin increased to $40.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $29.8 million for the corresponding period a year ago, and increased sequentially from $33.3 million for the third quarter of 2020. Gross margin, as a percentage of revenue, increased to 48.0% for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to 47.1% for the corresponding period a year ago, and increased from 42.7% for the third quarter of 2020.

Net income for the fourth quarter was $11.2 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.3 million or $0.03 per diluted share, for the corresponding period a year ago and net income of $5.8 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2020.

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2020, increased 12.8% to $296.6 million from $263.0 million for the corresponding period a year ago. Net income for 2020 was $17.9 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, compared to net income of $14.1 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the corresponding period a year ago.

Cash flow from operations totaled $19.3 million for the fourth quarter, a sequential increase of 66.9%, and totaled $34.5 million for the year, an increase of 55.6% over the total for 2019. Capital expenditures for the fourth quarter totaled $11.8 million, compared to $8.1 million for the prior quarter and $3.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. The sum of cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments sequentially rose 4.1% to approximately $211.9 million. During the fourth quarter, the company transferred approximately $130.2 million from cash accounts to short-term investment accounts.

Fourth quarter bookings increased 19.1% to $91.5 million, from $76.8 million for the corresponding period a year ago, and increased 1.2% sequentially from $90.5 million for the third quarter of 2020. Total bookings for the year totaled $339.7 million, an increase of 28.6% over the 2019 total. Total backlog at the end of the fourth quarter of 2020 was $147.6 million, representing an increase of 5.4% from $140.0 million at the end of the third quarter of 2020 and 41.7 % from $104.2 million at the end of 2019.

Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Fourth quarter results reflect improved margins in spite of manufacturing inefficiencies caused by outsourcing of critical process steps. Advanced Products bookings increased approximately 30%, offsetting a reduction in Brick Products orders. Our capacity expansion is on schedule and vertical integration of all of the process steps required by Advanced Products in our new facility should soon lead to shorter cycle times, greater efficiencies, and further improvements in gross and net margins.”

Vicor also announced that James A. Simms, Corporate Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer, and Secretary, will be resigning, effective June 30, 2021. The Company has initiated a search for a new Chief Financial Officer, a process with which Mr. Simms will be assisting. Mr. Simms’ resignation is not related to Vicor’s operations, policies, or practices, including its internal controls or other matters related to financial reporting.

Commenting on Mr. Simms’ pending resignation, Dr. Vinciarelli stated, “I wish Jamie success in all his future endeavors. Over his 13 year tenure as CFO, Jamie has made significant contributions to Vicor’s success.”
