Analog Devices Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Results; Increases Dividend by $0.04 to $0.34 Per Share

Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, today announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2013, which ended February 2, 2013.

Results for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2013

  • Revenue totaled $622.1 million
  • Gross margin was 62.7% of revenue
  • Operating margin was 26.9% of revenue, excluding special items, and was 24.7% on a GAAP basis
  • Diluted EPS was $0.44, excluding special items, and was $0.42 on a GAAP basis
  • Cash flow from operations was $158 million, or 25.4% of revenue

“Results for the first quarter were within the range we communicated and represented a generally weak macroeconomic environment exacerbated by year-end inventory reductions at many customers. Nevertheless, our operating performance remained strong, as we carefully managed our business to balance the long term opportunities for ADI with the realities of current market conditions,” said Jerald G. Fishman, CEO. “In January, order rates began to improve across most markets and geographies and have remained strong so far this quarter. As a result, we are planning for solid revenue growth in our second quarter, in the range of 4-8% sequentially with significant operating leverage.”

ADI also announced that its Board of Directors has approved a 13 percent increase in its regular quarterly dividend, from $0.30 to $0.34 per outstanding share of common stock. The dividend will be paid on March 12, 2013 to all shareholders of record at the close of business on March 1, 2013.

Please refer to the schedules provided for a summary of revenue and earnings, selected balance sheet information, and the cash flow statement for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, as well as the immediately prior and year-ago quarters. The first quarter of fiscal year 2012 was a 14-week period. Additional information on revenue by end market and revenue by product type is provided on Schedules D and E. A more complete table covering prior periods is available at investor.analog.com.

Outlook for the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2013

The following statements are based on current expectations. These statements are forward- looking and actual results may differ materially, as a result of, among other things, 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, and ADI disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

  • Revenue estimated to increase in the range of 4% to 8% sequentially
  • Gross margin estimated to be approximately 64%
  • Operating expenses estimated to be approximately $224 million
  • Tax rate estimated to be approximately 17%
  • Diluted EPS estimated at $0.49 to $0.55

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, 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 item is 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.

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

Tax-Related Item. In the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, the Company recorded a $6.3 million tax benefit related to the reinstatement of the R&D tax credit in January 2013, retroactive to January 1, 2012. We excluded this tax-related item from our non-GAAP measures because it is 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, 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, 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, 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.

We do not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements made by us.

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.
