Cypress Reports Third-Quarter 2013 Results

Our third quarter revenue declined 2% sequentially and was slightly higher than our recently revised guidance. We were disappointed to lower our guidance for the third quarter, but we experienced unforecasted weakness in the mobile handset market. Our gross margins remained strong at 53.8% and our operating expenses achieved a 3.5-year low. Together, they allowed us to deliver 12.5% pretax profitability, despite the revenue decline.

We will continue to endure volatility and granularity in our mobile handset business in the fourth quarter, leading to a sequential decline of 10% to 14% in revenue, consistent with the guidance given in our pre-announcement. Despite some delays, our design win pipeline remains robust, especially for our new TrueTouch® Gen5 touchscreen products, and we expect to resume revenue growth in early 2014.

BUSINESS REVIEW

+ Our non-GAAP consolidated gross margin for the third quarter was 53.8%, up 0.7 percentage points from the previous quarter, due to customer mix and continued cost-reduction efforts. Excluding our Emerging Technologies Division, our core semiconductor gross margins were 54.8%, a record for the year.

+ Net inventory at the end of the third quarter was $101.0 million, up just $2.5 million from the second quarter despite the revenue weakness.
