Micrel, Incorporated (NASDAQ: MCRL), a leading global manufacturer of IC solutions for the worldwide high performance linear and power, LAN and timing and communications markets, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.

Fourth quarter revenues totaled $62.3 million, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 1.0%, from $62.9 million in the third quarter of 2012, and an increase of 6.1% from $58.8 million in the prior year's period.

Fourth quarter 2012 GAAP net loss of $5.7 million, or a loss of $0.10 per diluted share, compares to third quarter 2012 GAAP net income of $4.7 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, and GAAP net income of $5.0 million, or $0.08 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011. During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company recorded a one-time non-cash charge of $7.6 million related to the write-off of a deferred tax asset as a result of certain provisions of the California State Tax Code that were revised during the fourth quarter with the passage of Proposition 39. The Company currently expects that in 2013 and beyond, Micrel's income subject to tax in California will be lower than under the prior tax law and that Micrel's California deferred tax assets are, therefore, less likely to be realized.

The fourth quarter 2012 non-GAAP net income of $3.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compares to third quarter 2012 non-GAAP net income of $5.8 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, and non-GAAP net income of $6.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share in the same period of 2011. A reconciliation of the GAAP net income to non-GAAP net income is provided in the financial tables at the end of this press release. Non-GAAP results exclude the impact of stock-based compensation expense with the related tax effects and deferred tax asset adjustment.

For the full year ended December 31, 2012, revenues totaled $250.1 million, down $8.9 million, from $259.0 for the full year ended December 31, 2011. GAAP net income for 2012 was $10.4 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared with GAAP net income of $34.0 million or $0.55 per diluted share in 2011. Non-GAAP net income in 2012 was $23.0 million or $0.38 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $37.8 million or $0.60 per diluted share, in 2011. Gross margin for 2012 was 53.1% compared to 55.3% in 2011.

Commenting on the 2012 fourth quarter and full year results, Micrel's President and CEO Ray Zinn said, "In light of the difficult macroeconomic and industry environment, we are pleased with our financial and operational results for 2012. Bookings during 2012 were solid and yielded a book-to-bill ratio of approximately one for the full year. In addition, we continue to maintain a strong balance sheet and ended 2012 with cash, cash equivalents and short term investments of $103.6 million, or $1.72 per share. We remain focused on increasing shareholder value through our quarterly dividend payments and stock repurchase program. During 2012, we raised our quarterly cash dividend per share and also invested $34.6 million in the repurchase of 3.4 million shares of Micrel common stock."

Outlook
Mr. Zinn continued, "As a result of the sluggish macroeconomic environment, 2012 was one of the most difficult years of the past decade for the entire semiconductor industry. Consequently, we believe semiconductor customers significantly reduced inventory levels during the year which resulted in relatively short lead times and caused the industry as a whole to ship below actual demand. We believe that we are seeing a bottom to the industry decline and we expect growth in the industry to resume. We expect lead times to increase and inventory levels to normalize towards the second half of the year resulting in modest full-year growth in 2013 for the industry.

"Based upon current inventory levels and demand estimates, the Company projects first quarter 2013 revenue growth will be in a range of minus 6% to plus 3% on a sequential basis. Gross profit margin is expected to be in the range of 51.0% to 52.0%. In addition, the Company estimates that first quarter 2013 GAAP net income will be approximately $0.05 to $0.10 per diluted share," Mr. Zinn concluded.

Dividend
During the fourth quarter, Micrel's Board of Directors authorized an accelerated quarterly cash dividend of $0.0425 per share of common stock. The payment of this dividend was made on December 27, 2012 to shareholders of record as of December 18, 2012.

Share Repurchase Plan
In the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company repurchased 0.6 million shares for a total of $6.1 million. For the full year, the Company repurchased 3.4 million shares for a total of $34.6 million. As of December 31, 2012, up to approximately $19.1 million of additional repurchases of the Company's stock remained under the stock repurchase plan authorized by the Board of Directors. The authorization will stay in effect until the aggregate authorized amount is expended or the authorization is modified by the Board of Directors. Going forward, the timing and amount of any repurchase of shares will continue to be determined by the Company's management based upon its evaluation of market conditions, cash on hand and various other factors. These repurchases may occur from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions provided that the repurchases are made in accordance with the terms of Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Enhancing shareholder value continues through Micrel's stock repurchase program and quarterly dividend payments.

Safe Harbor Statement Under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995
This press release includes statements that qualify as forward-looking statements under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include statements about the following topics: our expectations regarding future financial results, including revenues, customer demand and inventories, order lead times, backlog, turns-fill requirements, net income, earnings per share, gross margin, average selling prices, the effect of cost-control efforts, supply chain constraints, channel inventory levels and trends, capacity utilization, development of new products, design wins and customer order patterns, and the nature and extent of macro-economic and industry trends. Forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially. Those risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, such factors as: softness in demand for our products; customer decisions to cancel, rescheduling, or delayed orders for our products; the effect that lead times and channel inventories have on the demand for our products; economic or financial difficulties experienced by our customers; the effect of business conditions in the computer, wireless, telecommunications and industrial markets; the impact of any previous or future acquisitions; changes in demand for the Company's products; the impact of competitive products and pricing and alternative technological advances; the accuracy of estimates used to prepare the Company's financial statements and forecasts; the global economic situation; the ability of the Company's vendors and subcontractors to supply or manufacture the Company's products in a timely manner; the timely and successful development and market acceptance of new products and upgrades to existing products; softness in the economy and the U.S. stock markets as a whole; fluctuations in the market price of Micrel's common stock and other market conditions; the difficulty of predicting our future cash needs; the nature of other investment opportunities available to the Company from time to time; Micrel's operating cash flow, and economic and industry projections.

All forward-looking statements are made as of today, and the Company disclaims any duty to update such statements.

Non-GAAP Reporting
The Company presents non-GAAP financial measures only because investors and financial analysts use non-GAAP results in their analysis of historical results and projections of the Company's future operating results. The Company's management uses non-GAAP measures on a limited basis, primarily for employee performance-based compensation. In order to facilitate the computation of non-GAAP results for the financial analyst community and investors, the Company makes reference to non-GAAP net income and earnings per share. These non-GAAP results exclude the impact of stock-based compensation expense with related taxes and, write-off of California deferred tax asset. Micrel references those results to allow a better comparison of results in the current period to those in prior periods and to provide insight to the Company's on-going operating performance after exclusion of these items. The Company has reconciled such non-GAAP results to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the financial tables at the end of this press release.

Reference to these non-GAAP results should be considered in addition to results that are prepared under current accounting standards, but should not be considered a substitute for results that are presented in accordance with GAAP. It should also be noted that Micrel's non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries.
