Analog Devices Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2012 Results

NORWOOD, Mass.--()--Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, today announced financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2012, which ended May 5, 2012.

“ADI produced solid results for the second quarter. Compared to the immediately prior quarter, revenue grew 4%, led by strong sales across a wide range of industrial applications, and also increased sales into communications infrastructure applications. Diluted EPS grew 15%, well ahead of revenue growth, as gross margin and operating income expanded by 200 and 320 basis points, respectively. Operating cash flow continued to be very strong at $226 million, or approximately 34% of sales,” said Jerald G. Fishman, President and CEO. “Order rates and backlog also grew compared to the prior quarter, which leads us to plan for continued sequential growth of revenue in the third quarter.”

ADI also announced that the Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.30 per outstanding share of common stock. The dividend will be paid on June 12, 2012 to all shareholders of record at the close of business on June 1, 2012.

  • Revenue totaled $675 million
  • Gross margin was 65.2% of revenue
  • Operating margin was 31.5% of revenue

Non-GAAP Financial Information for Fiscal Year 2011 Second Quarter

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 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 diluted earnings per share:

Tax-Related Item. In the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, we recorded a one-time $10.8 million tax benefit for a settlement with the Internal Revenue Service related to certain tax matters for the fiscal 2004 through fiscal 2007 tax years. 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 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 diluted EPS has material limitations in that it does 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 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.
