Commenting on the results, Ralph Quinsey, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I am pleased with the strong growth and substantially improved earnings we achieved this quarter. Strong mobile demand drove improved factory utilization while expenses were managed closely. RF content growth is being fueled by next-generation smartphones operating in a more crowded spectrum with expanding frequency requirements. TriQuint is uniquely positioned to supply high-performance solutions for the most challenging and complex RF front end requirements."

Summary Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 28, 2013:

Revenue for the third quarter of 2013 was $250.8 million, up 25% from the third quarter of 2012 and up 32% sequentially. Revenue grew 53% and 11% in the mobile devices and defense end markets respectively, but declined 11% in the networks end market sequentially. The decline in networks was largely driven by a reduction in non-strategic foundry business.

Cash and investments decreased by $62.4 million to $26.9 million in the quarter. Growth in accounts receivable and repayment of debt drove the decline.

GAAP

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2013 was 36.8%, up sequentially from 29.8% due primarily to higher revenue and factory utilization. Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2013 were $73.4 million, consistent with the previous quarter.

Net income for the third quarter of 2013 was $13.6 million or $0.08 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $14.9 million, or $(0.09) per share, in the previous quarter.

Non-GAAP

Gross margin for the third quarter was 38.0%, up sequentially from 31.3% due to higher revenue and improved factory utilization. Operating expenses for the quarter were $68.6 million, down 1% sequentially.

Net income for the third quarter of 2013 of $26.3 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, improved sequentially from a net loss of $10.9 million or $(0.07) per share.

Please see the discussion of non-GAAP financial measures below and the attached supplemental schedule for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.

Outlook:

The company believes fourth quarter 2013 revenue will be between $260 million and $270 million. Fourth quarter revenue is currently 88% booked to the midpoint of this guidance.
