Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Analog Devices Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Results; Increases Dividend by $0.04 to $0.34 Per Share16:02 EST Tuesday, February 19, 2013 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 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 Outlook for the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2013The 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 Conference Call Scheduled for 5:00 pm ET ADI will host a conference call to discuss the first quarter results and short-term outlook today, beginning at 5:00 pm ET. Investors may join via webcast, accessible at, or by telephone (call 706-634-7193 ten minutes before the call begins and provide the password "ADI."). A replay will be available two hours after the completion of the call. The replay may be accessed for up to two weeks by dialing 855-859-2056 (replay only) and providing the conference ID: 92068413, or by visiting 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.

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.                           Three Months EndedFeb. 2, 2013     Nov. 3, 2012   Feb. 4, 2012Revenue   %*   Q/Q %   Y/Y %RevenueRevenue Industrial $ 282,654   45 %   -8 %   -3 % $ 306,042 $ 290,660 Automotive 107,581 17 % -3 % -11 % 110,401 120,588 Consumer 106,929 17 % -22 % -6 % 136,379 114,261 Communications   124,970 20 % -12 % 2 %   142,142   122,549 Total Revenue$622,134100%-10%-4%$694,964$648,058   * The sum of the individual percentages does not equal the total due to rounding     Analog Devices, First Quarter, Fiscal 2013   Schedule ERevenue 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.                           Three Months EndedFeb. 2, 2013     Nov. 3, 2012   Feb. 4, 2012Revenue   %*   Q/Q %   Y/Y %RevenueRevenue Converters $ 277,637   45 %   -10 %   -3 % $ 307,252 $ 285,135 Amplifiers / Radio Frequency 157,853 25 % -10 % -4 % 174,521 164,454 Other analog   95,693 15 % -15 % -1 %   112,083   96,238 Subtotal Analog Signal Processing   531,183 85 % -11 % -3 %   593,856   545,827 Power management & reference   39,460 6 % -14 % -12 %   45,808   44,865 Total Analog Products$570,64392%-11%-3%$639,664$590,692 Digital Signal Processing   51,491 8 % -7 % -10 %   55,300   57,366 Total Revenue$622,134100%-10%-4%$694,964$648,058   * The sum of the individual percentages does not equal the total due to rounding     Analog Devices, First Quarter, Fiscal 2013   Schedule FReconciliation from Non-GAAP to GAAP Data (In thousands, except per-share amounts)       See "Non-GAAP Financial Information" in this press release for a description of the items excluded from our non-GAAP measures.           Three Months Ended1Q 134Q 121Q 12Feb. 2, 2013   Nov. 3, 2012   Feb. 4, 2012   GAAP Operating Expenses$236,795$228,003$226,018Percent of Revenue38.1%32.8%34.9% Restructuring-Related Expense   (14,071 )     -       -   Non-GAAP Operating Expenses$222,724     $228,003     $226,018   Percent of Revenue35.8%32.8%34.9%   GAAP Operating Income/Margin$153,489$215,279$183,372Percent of Revenue24.7%31.0%28.3% Restructuring-Related Expense   14,071       -       -   Non-GAAP Operating Income/Margin$167,560     $215,279     $183,372   Percent of Revenue26.9%31.0%28.3%   GAAP Diluted EPS$0.42$0.58$0.46 Impact of the Reinstatement of the R&D Tax Credit (0.02 ) - - Restructuring-Related Expense   0.04       -       -   Non-GAAP Diluted EPS$0.44     $0.58     $0.46   Analog Devices, Inc.Mr. Ali Husain, 781-461-3282Director of Investor RelationsFax:
