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 2015, which ended August 1, 2015.

"Once again this quarter, our focus on sustainable innovation that bridges the physical and digital worlds across diverse applications and markets, coupled with strong execution throughout the Company, delivered solid growth and profits."

"Looking ahead, stable order rates and a positive book to bill ratio lead us to plan for sequential growth in the fourth quarter, and for revenue to be in the range of $880 million to $940 million."

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 E of this press release provides the reconciliation of the Company's historical non-GAAP measures to its GAAP measures.

Management uses non-GAAP measures 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 evaluating the Company's core business and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis. Management also believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP items is useful to investors because it provides investors with the operating results that management uses to manage the Company and enables investors and analysts to evaluate the Company's core business.

The following item is excluded from our non-GAAP revenue:

Hittite Operations: The results of operation of Hittite from July 22, 2014 through August 2, 2014 have been excluded from our non-GAAP measures because they are not reflective of ongoing operating results.

The following items are excluded from our non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share:

Hittite Operations: The results of operation of Hittite from July 22, 2014 through August 2, 2014 have been excluded from our non-GAAP measures because they are not reflective of ongoing operating results.

Acquisition-Related Expenses: Expenses incurred in the second and third quarters of fiscal 2015 and the third quarter of fiscal 2014 as a result of the Hittite acquisition primarily include: severance payments, expense associated with the fair value adjustments to inventory and property, plant and equipment; and amortization of acquisition related intangibles, which include acquired intangibles such as purchased technology and customer relationships. We excluded these costs from our non-GAAP measures because they relate to a specific transaction and are not reflective of our ongoing financial performance.

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:

Acquisition-Related Transaction Costs: Costs incurred as a result of the Hittite acquisition in the second and third quarters of fiscal 2015 and the third quarter of fiscal 2014 include professional fees and settlement costs directly related to the Hittite acquisition. We excluded these costs from our non-GAAP measures because they relate to a specific transaction and are not reflective of our ongoing financial performance.

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

Acquisition-Related Debt Costs: The Company incurred debt financing costs and interest expense during the third quarter of fiscal 2014 on its 90-day term loan facility used to finance the Hittite acquisition. We excluded these costs from our non-GAAP measures because they are not reflective of our ongoing financial performance.

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

Tax-Related Items: In the third quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company recorded $0.7 million of tax adjustments associated with the Hittite acquisition-related expenses and transaction costs. In the second quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company recorded $1.5 million of tax adjustments associated with the Hittite acquisition-related expenses and transaction costs. 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.

Analog Devices believes that these non-GAAP measures 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.

Investors should consider our non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

Schedule D

Revenue Trends by End Market (Unaudited)

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. The results below are inclusive of the Hittite acquisition from the acquisition date, July 22, 2014.
