Peregrine files for $100 million IPO
November 22, 2010 // Mark LaPedus
RF chip maker Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. has filed for a $100 million initial public offering (IPO) in the U.S., according to a filing.
The company's sales revenue grew from $38.2 million in 2006 to $53.4 million in 2007, and to $68.4 million in 2008. ''In 2009, our net revenue continued to grow to $70.5 million, but at a less rapid pace than the year prior,'' according to the filing. ''In 2007, 2008, and 2009, we incurred net losses of $33.1 million, $36.0 million, and $7.4 million, respectively. As of September 25, 2010, we had an accumulated deficit of $219.8 million.''
It appears to have turned the corner. In the nine months ended Sept. 26, 2009 and Sept. 25, 2010, it generated net revenue of $49.1 million and $67.6 million, respectively, representing year-over-year growth of 38 percent. During these nine month periods, the company generated a net loss of $8.3 million in 2009 and net income of $2.5 million in 2010.
''Our products were sold to more than 1,200 module manufacturers, OEMs, contract manufacturers, and other customers, including such companies as Amalfi Semiconductor, AnTS, Boeing, EPCOS, Hitachi Media, Hitachi Metals, Itron, JK Space, L-3 Communications, LG Innotek, Mini-Circuits, Motorola, Murata, Planet, Rohde & Schwarz, SIPAT, Skyworks, Source Photonics, Thales Alenia Space, and Wisol,'' according to the filing. ''According to third-party 'tear down' reports of handsets provided by UBM TechInsights, we believe our RFICs are also incorporated into products sold by LG, Samsung, and Sony-Ericsson.''All news
