Entropic Communications Inc. (ENTR) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2011-12-31.

Entropic Communications Inc. has a market cap of $607.4 million; its shares were traded at around $7 with a P/E ratio of 13.2 and P/S ratio of 2.9.

Highlight of Business Operations:

We provide rebates on our products to certain customers. At the time of the sale, we accrue 100% of the potential rebate as a reduction to net revenue and do not apply a breakage factor. The amount of these reductions is based upon the terms included in various rebate agreements. We reverse the accrual for unclaimed rebate amounts as specific rebate programs contractually end or when we believe unclaimed rebates are no longer subject to payment and will not be paid. For the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010 and 2009, we reduced net revenue by $0.8 million, $0.6 million and $0.7 million, respectively, in connection with our rebate programs.

Since inception, we have derived our net revenues primarily from Asia, the United States and other North American countries. Net revenues are allocated to the geographic region based on the shipping destination of customer orders. For sales to ODMs and OEMs, their geographic locations may differ from those of the ultimate end customers. Of our $240.6 million in net revenues in 2011, $213.5 million, $26.3 million and $0.8 million were derived from Asia, North America and Europe, respectively. Of our $210.2 million in net revenues in 2010, $195.1 million, $12.1 million and $3.1 million were derived from Asia, North America and Europe, respectively. Of our $116.3 million in net revenues in 2009, $107.1 million, $7.0 million and $2.2 million were derived from Asia, North America and Europe, respectively.

Our net revenues for 2011 were $240.6 million, as compared to net revenues of $210.2 million in 2010, an increase of $30.4 million or 14%. The overall increase in net revenues was driven by higher demand for our home networking products, which were the result of deployments of MoCA enabled devices by existing and new service providers during the first half of 2011, as well as an increase in the deployment of DBS ODU products.

Our net revenues for 2010 were $210.2 million, as compared to net revenues of $116.3 million in 2009, an increase of $93.9 million or 81%. The increase in net revenues for 2010 was primarily driven by higher demand for our home networking products, including new deployments by additional service providers and by higher demand for our DBS outdoor unit products.

Income tax expense for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 was $14.1 million, or approximately 35% of pre-tax income. The effective tax rate for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 is comprised of federal expense at statutory rates less research and development credits which resulted in a benefit of approximately 3%, offset by an increase in our tax rate of due to reserves for uncertain tax positions of approximately 3%. Our net state income tax rate was less than 0.1% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, due to the impact of the California single sales factor election to calculate our tax liability. Due to the expected utilization of net operating loss carryforwards and research and development credits that offset our taxes payable, our current income tax expense in 2011 is significantly higher than our actual cash tax liability.
