ANALOG DEVICES REPORTS THIRD QUARTER FISCAL YEAR 2014 RESULTS

Board declares $0.37 per share cash dividend

Norwood, MA (08/26/2014) - 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 2014, which ended August 2, 2014.

“ADI had another good quarter of revenue growth led by the industrial and communications infrastructure markets,” said Vincent Roche, President and CEO. “Profitability and cash flow continued to be strong and we returned $173 million to shareholders through cash dividends and share repurchases.”

“Near the end of our third quarter, we completed the acquisition of Hittite Microwave Corporation which adds critical radio frequency, microwave and millimeter wave technology to our product portfolio. This helps ADI bring more complete solutions to our industrial, aerospace and defense, communications, and automotive customers, where ever-increasing design challenges are creating significant growth opportunities for ADI,” Mr. Roche continued. “With the addition of Hittite, we are planning for revenue in the fourth quarter to be in the range of $790 million to $820 million.”

Outlook for the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2014
The following statements are based on current expectations, and as indicated, are presented on a non-GAAP basis. 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 $790 million to $820 million
  • Non-GAAP gross margin expected to be approximately 66.2%
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses expected to be between $268 million to $271 million
  • Non-GAAP interest and other expense expected to be approximately $6 million
  • Non-GAAP tax rate expected to be 15.5% to 16%
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS estimated to be $0.66 to $0.70/share


With respect to the forward-looking information presented on a non-GAAP basis, the Company is unable to provide a quantitative reconciliation to GAAP because the items that would be included or excluded, other than those described below, are difficult to predict and estimate and are primarily dependent on future events. Known reconciling items are:

  • Non-GAAP gross margin excludes $8 million of amortization of intangible assets and $48 million of inventory and fixed asset step-up charges to record Hittite inventory and fixed assets at fair value, as part of the purchase accounting for the Hittite acquisition;
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses exclude $5 million of amortization of intangible assets and $15 million of acquisition-related costs, primarily for bank and other advisory fees related to the Hittite acquisition;
  • Non-GAAP interest and other expense excludes $5 million of debt financing costs; and
  • Non-GAAP tax rate excludes $18-$19 million provision for income taxes which represents the tax effects of the reconciling items noted in the three bullets above.

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 historical non-GAAP measures to its GAAP measures

Management uses non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, 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.

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

Hittite Operations: The results of operations 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 operations 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 as a result of the Hittite acquisition in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 primarily include: severance payments, amortization of the fair value adjustment to inventory; amortization of the fair value adjustments to property, plant and equipment and amortization of acquisition related intangibles, which include acquired intangibles such as purchased technology and customer relationships.

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:

The exclusion of these items allows management to evaluate the Company’s core business and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis. Management presents these Non-GAAP items to enable investors and analysts to evaluate our core business.

Acquisition-Related Transaction Costs: Costs incurred as a result of the Hittite acquisition in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 include legal, accounting and other professional fees 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.

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

Tax-Related Items. 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.

Management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margins, non-GAAP other expenses and non-GAAP diluted EPS is useful to investors because it provides investors with the operating results that management uses to manage the Company.

Analog Devices believes that non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margins, non-GAAP other expenses 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.

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