Commenting on the results, Ralph Quinsey, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our financial results in the third quarter were well above expectations due to strong demand and an improved product mix driven by a strategic focus on delivering high performance solutions in each of our markets. The success we are seeing today is due to years of investment in BAW/SAW and high performance GaAs/GaN technologies. We continue to see robust demand and are raising our outlook for the fourth quarter. We remain on track to launch a new combined company, Qorvo, with the merger of TriQuint and RFMD expected to close by year end."

Summary Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 27, 2014:

Cash and investments increased by $24.4 million this quarter to $247.9 million, driven by operating results and cash proceeds from employee stock option exercises and partially offset by continued investment in premium filter capacity.

GAAP

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2014 was 45.5%, up sharply from 40.2% in the second quarter of 2014 and from 36.8% in the third quarter of 2013 due to product mix and strong factory execution. Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2014 were $87.8 million, up sequentially due to merger and integration related costs.

Net income for the third quarter of 2014 was $26.2 million or $0.14 per diluted share, compared with net income of $5.2 million or $0.03 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2014 and $0.08 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013.

Gross margin for the third quarter was 46.6%, up sharply from 41.7% in the second quarter of 2014 and 38.0% in the prior year. Operating expenses for the quarter were $74.7 million, up slightly sequentially.

Earnings per diluted share for the third quarter of 2014 was $0.28, compared with $0.13 per share in the second quarter of 2014 and $0.16 per diluted share in the third quarter in 2013.

Outlook:

The company expects fourth quarter revenue to range between $330 million and $340 million, up 23% sequentially at the midpoint. Fourth quarter non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be between 46% and 48%, driven by strong factory execution and product mix. Fourth quarter non-GAAP net income per diluted share is expected to be between $0.40 and $0.45. As of today, the company is fully booked to the midpoint of revenue guidance.
