SMSC (NASDAQ:SMSC) announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2012, ended May 31, 2011.

Total revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was $103.5 million, an increase of approximately 7 percent when compared to the same period in the prior year and an increase of approximately 2 percent sequentially. This included about $800 thousand in sales from SMSC’s acquisition of BridgeCo during the period between the closing of the acquisition on May 19, 2011 and the end of the quarter. Non-GAAP gross margin was 56.4 percent and the GAAP gross margin was 53.9 percent. Non-GAAP net income was $11.0 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $7.6 million, or $0.33 per diluted share in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was $6.2 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $0.6 million, or $0.03 per diluted share for the same prior year period.

SMSC reported a strong first quarter with revenue, non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP earnings per share exceeding expectations,” said Christine King, President & Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited about the acquisition of BridgeCo, which is a significant addition to our Wireless Audio product offering. Automotive revenue set another new record in the first quarter despite some weakness in our Japanese automotive business. PC revenue was up slightly on a year-over-year basis but down roughly four percent sequentially mainly due to consumer PC sales as well as Japanese customer related sales. However, our enterprise PC business remains healthy, which is the largest share of our overall PC sales. ”

Ms. King continued, “For the second quarter, we anticipate revenue to increase by approximately 8 to 10 percent sequentially, including about $8 million from the BridgeCo acquisition. We do not expect any further material impact as a result of the Japanese crisis and expect further growth in our automotive and consumer revenue. We continue to have major design win success as we broaden our product and intellectual property offerings which we believe will drive content and market share growth in each of our target markets.”

Biomass use can be considered part of the terrestrial carbon cycle-the balanced cycling of carbon from the atmosphere into plants and then into soils and the atmosphere during plant decay. When biopower is developed properly, emissions of biomass carbon are taken up or recycled by subsequent plant growth within a relatively short time, resulting in low net carbon emissions.

Beneficial biomass sources generally maintain or even increase the stocks of carbon stored in soil or plants. Beneficial biomass also displaces carbon emissions from fossil fuels, such as coal, oil or natural gas, the burning of which adds new and additional carbon to the atmosphere and causes global warming.

National Health Partners, Inc., a leading provider of discount healthcare membership programs, announced the recent signing of two new significant marketing agreements. These two clients provide very different opportunities and continue to expand the reach of CARExpress into new marketplaces.

By launching their own unique internet marketing program, the first group should be able to provide a widespread push into the on-line market to produce an excellent volume of new CARExpress sales into the pipeline. In addition, the second group offers a reach into the wholesale marketplace where CARExpress will be wrapped into other programs to enhance the value of the overall package to the consumer.

In addition, healthcare providers are paid at the time of service, reducing the billing procedures and cost associated with insurance and allowing the provider to immediately collect payment. CARExpress membership programs are also attractive to provider networks because they increase the likelihood that healthcare providers will affiliate with them so as to gain access to a greater number of potential customers and patients.
