“The second quarter was a strong quarter for ADI, well ahead of our expectations, with revenue growing 9% sequentially and 18% year-over-year, driven by strength in our industrial, automotive, and communications infrastructure businesses,” said Jerald G. Fishman, President and CEO. “In addition, our gross margin increased to 67.6% and our operating margin increased to 37.8%, both records for ADI.

Outlook for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2011
The following statements are based on current expectations. These statements are forward- looking and actual results may differ materially, including as a result of the important factors discussed at the end of this release. These statements supersede all prior statements regarding our business outlook set forth in prior ADI news releases.
Regarding the outlook for the third quarter of fiscal 2011, Mr. Fishman stated, “Overall demand for ADI products was very strong in the second quarter, although it is likely that a portion of the upside above our plan was the result of industry-wide supply uncertainty related to events in Japan which most probably accelerated some demand. We do not expect this to repeat in the third quarter as supply appears to have stabilized across the industry. At the same time, our order trends were strong throughout the second quarter. Our book-to-bill ratio, as measured by end customer bookings, was above one and our OEM opening backlog for shipment in the third quarter increased from the prior quarter, indicating continued growth in demand for our products. In addition, our customer forecasts indicate continued strong demand for industrial, automotive, and communications infrastructure products and some recovery in consumer products, particularly in Japan.”
The Company’s outlook for the third quarter is as follows:
- Revenue: $765 million to $795 million, or down 3% to up 1% sequentially.
- Gross margin: 67.0% to 68.0% of sales, based on our current mix assumptions.
- Operating expenses: Flat to down 1%.
- Diluted EPS from continuing operations: $0.70 to $0.75.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
This release includes non-GAAP financial measures that are not in accordance with, nor an alternative to, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.
Schedule F of this press release provides the reconciliation of the Company’s non-GAAP measures to its GAAP measures.
Manner in Which Management Uses the Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Management uses non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to evaluate the Company’s operating performance against past periods and to budget and allocate resources in future periods. These non-GAAP measures also assist management in understanding and evaluating the Company’s operating results and trends in the Company’s business.
Economic Substance Behind Management’s Decision to Use Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The items excluded from the non-GAAP measures were excluded because they are of a non-recurring or non-cash nature.
The following items are excluded from our non-GAAP diluted earnings per share: Tax-Related Items. In the second quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company recorded a one-time $10.8 million tax benefit for a settlement with the Internal Revenue Service related to certain tax matters for the fiscal 2004 through fiscal 2007 tax years. In the first quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company recorded a $13 million tax benefit related to tax items that are one-time in nature. These one-time tax items included the reinstatement of the R&D tax credit in December 2010, retroactive to January 1, 2010; a reduction in a state tax credit valuation reserve we had recorded in prior years, which we now believe we can recover; and a benefit from the increase to the Irish deferred tax asset as a result of the increase in the Irish manufacturing tax rate from 10% to 12.5%. We excluded these tax-related items from our non-GAAP measures because they are not associated with the tax expense on our current operating results.
Why Management Believes the Non-GAAP Financial Measures Provide Useful Information to Investors
Management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, and non-GAAP diluted EPS is useful to investors because it provides investors with the operating results that management uses to manage the Company.
Material Limitations Associated with Use of the Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Analog Devices believes that non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, and non-GAAP diluted EPS have material limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. In addition, our non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to the non-GAAP measures reported by other companies. The Company’s use of non-GAAP measures, and the underlying methodology when excluding certain items, is not necessarily an indication of the results of operations that may be expected in the future, or that the Company will not, in fact, record such items in future periods.
Management’s Compensation for Limitations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Management compensates for these material limitations in non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, and non-GAAP diluted EPS by also evaluating our GAAP results and the reconciliations of our non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Investors should consider our non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.
