Revenue was $269.8 million, a 2.4% decrease compared to $276.5 million in the prior quarter (which was a 14-week quarter ended June 30, 2013) and a 7% increase from $252.5 million in the prior year quarter.

“First quarter revenue and gross margin exceeded our guidance, as all of our business segments performed above expectations led by the industrial, automotive and high performance computing end markets,” stated President and Chief Executive Officer Oleg Khaykin. “In addition, both operating and net income grew significantly and we increased our cash balance by $23.5 million. Design win activity was strong and our technology remained particularly well positioned for future growth in the server market with digital power management, automotive IGBTs for hybrid and electric vehicles and power modules for the industrial and appliance end markets.”
GAAP gross margin for the first quarter was 35.3% compared to 30% in the prior quarter and 27.9% in the prior year quarter. GAAP operating income for the first quarter was $16.4 million compared to operating income of $237 thousand in the prior quarter and an operating loss of $20.8 million in the prior year quarter.
Cash, cash equivalents and marketable investments increased $23.5 million and totaled $479 million at the end of the first quarter, including restricted cash of $1.4 million.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter was $15.1 million, or $0.21 per fully diluted share compared to non-GAAP net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.02 per fully diluted share in the prior quarter and non-GAAP net loss of $13.9 million, or $0.20 per fully diluted share in the prior year quarter.

The non-GAAP results the Company provides exclude the effects of accelerated depreciation, asset impairment, inventory write-offs associated with our El Segundo fab closure, restructuring costs, severance costs, impairment of goodwill, amortization of intangibles, the associated net tax effects of these items, and discrete tax provisions and benefits. The Company excludes any tax provisions (benefits) that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability.
A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the Company’s reported net income (loss), gross margin (referred to as gross profit in attached schedules) and operating income (loss) in accordance with U.S. GAAP are set forth in the attached schedules below.
December Quarter Outlook
Mr. Khaykin noted: “Looking ahead to the December quarter, we see a slight decline in our business driven by lower customer demand and year-end customer inventory adjustments. As a result, we currently expect revenue for the December quarter to range between $260 million to $270 million.
“Despite a seasonally weaker December quarter, we remain optimistic about calendar year 2014 as booking levels remain steady, inventory levels at our customers are lean and new design wins continue to ramp.”
