Analog Devices Reports Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Results

- Board declares $0.34 per share cash dividend

NORWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, today announced financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2013, which ended August 3, 2013.

"ADI delivered solid results for the third quarter. Compared to the prior quarter, revenue increased by 2% and our operating model produced excellent leverage, driving diluted EPS growth of 10%, excluding special items," said Vincent Roche, President and CEO. "Profitability and cash flow were very strong, and we returned $105 million to our shareholders through cash dividends."

By end market, industrial applications totaled 47% of revenue, communications infrastructure was 21% of revenue, and automotive and consumer applications were 18% and 15% of revenue, respectively.

"Order rates improved across all of our end markets during the third quarter, and we saw the strongest sequential revenue growth from products used in communications infrastructure applications. It appears that customer order rates were in-line with consumption, keeping inventories low," continued Mr. Roche.

"There are signs that a gradual recovery in the macroeconomic environment is underway and we are in a strong position to benefit from the return of capital investments in communications and industrial infrastructure programs. As a result our outlook for the fourth quarter is for our sales to grow in the range of $675 million to $700 million, up from $674 million in the third quarter," said Mr. Roche.

ADI also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.34 per outstanding share of common stock. The dividend will be paid on September 11, 2013 to all shareholders of record at the close of business on August 30, 2013.

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 margins, non-GAAP other expense, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to evaluate the Company's operating performance from continuing operations 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 operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share:

Restructuring-Related Expenses. These expenses are incurred in connection with facility closures, consolidation of manufacturing facilities, and other cost reduction efforts. Apart from ongoing expense savings as a result of such items, these expenses and the related tax effects have no direct correlation to the operation of our business in the future.

Stock-based Compensation Expense. In the second quarter of fiscal 2013, following the death of the Company's CEO, the Company recorded $6.3 million of stock-based compensation expense due to the accelerated vesting of restricted stock units in accordance with the terms of his restricted stock unit agreement. This stock-based compensation expense and the related tax effect have no direct correlation to the operation of our business in the future.

The following item is excluded from our non-GAAP other expense and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share:

Debt Extinguishment Costs: In the third quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company redeemed its outstanding 5.0% senior unsecured notes due July 1, 2014. The Company recognized a net loss on debt extinguishment of approximately $10.2 million, which was comprised of a make-whole premium, the recognition of unamortized proceeds received on an interest rate swap associated with the debt and the write off of unamortized debt issuance and discount costs. We excluded these costs from our non-GAAP measures because they are one time in nature and have no direct correlation to the operation of our business in the future.

The following items are excluded from our non-GAAP diluted earnings per share:

Tax-Related Items. In the third quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company recorded a one-time $3.4 million tax benefit related to the release of a tax reserve for an expired tax year. In the second quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company recorded a $6.6 million tax benefit as a result of the reversal of prior period tax liabilities. In the third quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company recorded a one-time $1.7 million tax benefit related to the release of a tax reserve for an expired tax year. 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 margins, non-GAAP other expense, 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 margins, non-GAAP other expense, 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 margins, non-GAAP other expense, 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.

Schedule D

Revenue Trends by End Market

 

The categorization of revenue by end market is determined using a variety of data points including the technical characteristics of the product, the "sold to" customer information, the "ship to" customer information and the end customer product or application into which our product will be incorporated. As data systems for capturing and tracking this data evolve and improve, the categorization of products by end market can vary over time. When this occurs we reclassify revenue by end market for prior periods. Such reclassifications typically do not materially change the sizing of, or the underlying trends of results within, each end market.

Schedule E
Revenue Trends by Product Type

 
The categorization of our products into broad categories is based on the characteristics of the individual products, the specification of the products and in some cases the specific uses that certain products have within applications. The categorization of products into categories is therefore subject to judgment in some cases and can vary over time. In instances where products move between product categories we reclassify the amounts in the product categories for all prior periods. Such reclassifications typically do not materially change the sizing of, or the underlying trends of results within, each product category.
