SanDisk provides computer storage sans disk. The company is a leading maker of flash memory storage devices -- integrated circuits that retain data when power is off (some memory chips lose stored data as soon as power is interrupted). The company's products include removable and embedded memory cards for such products as Eastman Kodak's digital cameras and mobile communication devices made by Nokia and Siemens. It's working with Texas Instruments and others to develop a digital audio player. SanDisk has sales offices in Europe, Asia, and the US. Exports account for about 55% of its sales. Computer storage products maker Seagate Technology owns about 23% of the company.

4.Q ´99:






SANDISK ANNOUNCES RECORD REVENUE, NET INCOME AND EARNINGS PER SHARE FOR FOURTH QUARTER 1999

SUNNYVALE, CA, January 26, 2000 . . . SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK), the world’s largest supplier of flash memory data storage products, today announced record revenue for its quarter ended December 31, 1999. Total fourth quarter revenues were $82.8 million, an increase of 23% from the third quarter of 1999 due primarily to increased sales of CompactFlash products and higher revenues from licenses and royalties. Revenues from licenses and royalties were $12.9 million, up 30% from $9.9 million in the prior quarter. Net income for the quarter was $10.0 million, up 54% from $6.5 million in the third quarter of 1999. Diluted earnings per share was $0.30, up 43% from the $0.21 per share for the third quarter of 1999.

Total fourth quarter revenues increased $44.6 million, or 117%, over total revenues of $38.2 million for the same period last year. Product revenues increased by 132% compared to the same period of the prior year and license and royalty revenues increased by 59%. Current quarter diluted earnings per share increased 130% compared to $0.13 per share for the fourth quarter of 1998.
Revenues for fiscal 1999 were $247 million, an increase of 82% from $135.8 million for the previous year due to higher product sales and higher revenues from licenses and royalties. Product revenues increased 99% due primarily to increased sales of CompactFlash and MultiMediaCard products. Net income in 1999 was $26.6 million, or $0.86 per share, compared with $11.8 million, or $0.43 per share for 1998 on a diluted basis. SanDisk’s balance sheet remains strong with cash and investments of $460 million and no debt.
"The fourth quarter was an excellent quarter for SanDisk" said Dr. Eli Harari, President and CEO of SanDisk. "New records were achieved in product and royalty revenues, units and megabytes shipped, net income and earnings per share. We shipped 36% more megabytes over the previous quarter, making this the seventh consecutive quarter of record megabyte shipments. Product gross margins increased to 27% from 24% in the third quarter due to the improved cost structures of our 128Mbit and 256Mbit products, which offset a decline of 3% in the sales price per megabyte shipped. Product gross margins are projected to further improve in the first quarter, primarily on the strength of our 256Mbit production and projected higher volumes.
"Sales growth was particularly strong in Q4 in the North America and European regions. Revenues from the retail channel represented 34% of product sales during this holiday season quarter, representing almost as much revenue as in the three prior quarters combined. The key contributor was CompactFlash sold into digital cameras, which were a hot seller this holiday season. Order backlog at year-end was at an all time high. We are booked for the first quarter and for a substantial portion of the second quarter’s revenue. The pricing environment is stable.
"Fiscal year 1999 was a very good year for SanDisk. We doubled revenues, approaching the quarter billion dollar mark and doubled earnings per share. We made major strides in penetrating the retail channel and successfully executed the 64Mbit to 128Mbit to 256Mbit technology transitions into high volume production in less than twelve months. We launched with Matsushita and Toshiba the Secure Digital Memory Card and established a strategic cooperation with Toshiba for the joint development and joint manufacturing of gigabit density flash memory. We believe that SanDisk’s target markets are entering a strong growth phase, fueled by the accelerating convergence of consumer electronics, internet and wireless. These new and exciting markets represent immense opportunities for sustainable growth for SanDisk in the years ahead. We are optimistic about strong growth in our sales and profits in fiscal 2000."

       World's First Product Designed to Use The SD Flash Memory Card is Introduced; SanDisk, Co-Inventor Of The Card, Will Manufacture And Market The SD Card        MONDAY, MARCH 27, 2000 10:31 AM
 - BusinessWire

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Mar 27, 2000 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- SanDisk Corp. (Nasdaq:SNDK) announced today that Toshiba Corp. has introduced the world's first product designed to use the SD (Secure Digital) Memory Card, a high-capacity, high-security flash memory card.
The device, a mobile Internet audio player (MEA110AS), is the first of a series of products that SanDisk expects will be introduced that will use the SD Memory Card. Several industry leading companies have indicated that they plan to base many of their new consumer electronics products on the SD Memory Card.
The SD Memory Card was introduced in August, 1999, by Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. (NYSE:MC), best known by its Panasonic brand name, SanDisk and Toshiba Corp. In January, 2000, the three firms announced that 71 companies have stated that they plan to join the new SD Association, an industry-wide association created to set industry standards for the card and promote its wide acceptance in digital applications including Internet music players, Internet appliances, cellular phones, digital still cameras, digital video cameras, handheld computers, automotive systems, set-top boxes and other products. Initial membership in the association is expected to include approximately 100 companies.

Nelson Chan, SanDisk's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said, "Toshiba's ground-breaking introduction of its new SD Internet music player is the first of many new SD-based consumer electronics products that we expect to see on the market this year and in 2001. Toshiba is a world-class leader in both flash memory and consumer electronics products and we applaud Toshiba's vision in helping establish the SD Memory Card as an industry standard in the era of the Internet."
Toshiba's new mobile audio player has a slot for the SD Memory Card, a durable, solid-state (no moving parts), removable card with the physical profile of a postage stamp (24mm x 32mm x 2.1mm).
Toshiba announced that "this is the world's first AAC -- and MP3 -- compatible mobile audio player with a SD Memory Card slot. Support for AAC -- high quality sound compression for music distribution and digital satellite broadcasts that will start later this year -- and for MP3 -- today's most widely used format for digital music on the Internet -- assures that the MEA110AS will bring consumers a tremendous range of audio content. MEA110AS incorporates the SDMI-compliant Content Protection for Recordable Media (CPRM) developed by Toshiba and other leading IT companies, assuring a high level of copyright protection and data security, while achieving full compliance with the SD Audio format specified by the SD Association. The player's built-in 64 megabyte (MB) flash memory stores 60 minutes of music. An optional 64MB SD Memory Card adds a further 60 minutes."
The MEA110AS will be available in Japan starting April 22, according to Toshiba. Toshiba is now readying the product for its introduction in the international market.
"The SD Memory Card is a self-contained solution for the coming era of booming electronic distribution," said Masao Suga, who promotes mobile AV product applications at Toshiba, and will head the Mobile AV Network Division, which will be established on April 1 at Toshiba Corp. "A strong partnership between SanDisk and Toshiba in flash memory allows users of our new SD-based mobile products to be highly confident about the future of this small but powerful medium."
Both Toshiba and SanDisk plan to separately introduce 128MB SD Memory Cards by the end of 2000. The card provides an SDMI-compliant (Secure Digital Music Initiative) high level of copyright protection.

SanDisk Announces Record Revenue, Net Income and Earnings Per Share for First Quarter 2000
        WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19, 2000 5:13 PM
 - BusinessWire

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Apr 19, 2000 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- SanDisk Corporation (Nasdaq:SNDK), the world's largest supplier of flash memory data storage products, today announced record revenue for its quarter ended March 31, 2000. Total first quarter revenues were $109.4 million, an increase of 148% from the first quarter of 1999 due primarily to increased sales of our CompactFlash and MultiMediaCard products. Product revenues were $97.2 million, an increase of 171% from $35.9 million compared to the same period last year. Revenues from licenses and royalties were $12.1 million, up 48% from $8.2 million in the first quarter of 1999. Net income for the quarter was $219.3 million and included a one-time after tax gain of $204 million from the previously announced conversion of SanDisk's investment in the United Silicon Inc. foundry into shares of United Microelectronics Corp. Excluding this one-time gain, net income for the current quarter was $15.3 million, up 256% compared to $4.3 million in the same period last year. In the first quarter, diluted earnings per share were $3.00, which included $2.79 per share from the gain on SanDisk's foundry investment. Diluted earnings per share excluding this one-time gain were $0.21 per share compared to $0.07 per share in the first quarter of 1999.

Total first quarter revenues increased sequentially by $26.6 million, or 32%, from total revenues of $82.8 million for the fourth quarter of 1999. Product revenues increased by 39%. Current quarter diluted earnings per share, net of the one-time gain related to the USIC merger, increased to $0.21 per share, up 40% compared to $0.15 per share for the fourth quarter of 1999.

"The first quarter was an outstanding quarter for SanDisk with total revenues reaching a record high, surpassing the $100 million mark for the first time," said Dr. Eli Harari, President and CEO of SanDisk. "Product gross margins improved by three percentage points to 30% and operating income reached a record level. New bookings significantly surpassed the previous quarter's record bookings and backlog at quarter-end was at an all time high.

"Sales growth improved sequentially in all geographic regions of the world, particularly in Japan and Europe. We experienced significant growth in unit sales of CompactFlash cards sold into digital cameras; MultiMediaCards sold into MP3 music players, smart phones and digital camcorders; and PC cards sold into telecommunication and industrial applications. MultiMediaCard unit sales more than doubled from the prior quarter. Retail sales were strong worldwide, continuing the trend started in the fourth quarter with holiday sales.

"Looking forward to the next several quarters, bookings visibility and new design win activity continue to be very good. Flash supply from the major vendors, including SanDisk, remains tight. Our primary focus in the near term is to work with our wafer foundry suppliers to further increase our shippable flash memory capacity through process shrinks and the qualification of additional fab capacity for second half shipments. We are optimistic about our continued growth in sales, product gross margins, and profits in fiscal 2000."

This news release contains forward looking statements including the Company's expectations for future product revenues and bookings, average selling prices, gross margin and profits that are based on current expectations and involve risks and uncertainties that may affect the Company's business, financial condition and results of operations. In addition to the factors discussed above, other risks include: the availability of adequate supply of flash memory wafers from UMC in Taiwan and from other sources; the availability of other critical materials and components; the timely and successful manufacturing ramp up of new product generations and new foundries with acceptable yields and manufacturing costs; the timely introduction and acceptance of new consumer products that incorporate the Company's flash storage devices; future average selling price erosion due to excess capacity and price competition; the successful ramp up of assembly operations in China, Taiwan and the Philippines; seasonality of product sales; success in developing brand name preference and an efficient distribution system for SanDisk's products in the retail channel; economic conditions and exchange rates in Japan, the Pacific Rim and other geographic regions as they affect SanDisk's customers; the successful negotiation of a definitive agreement with Toshiba on the announced memo of understanding regarding joint development and manufacturing of advanced flash memories; the successful signing of a definitive agreement with Matsushita and Toshiba for the Secure Digital memory card; the successful development and launch of our Secure Digital cards products; and the other risks detailed from time to time in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports, including, but not limited to, the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 1999.
