Maxim Integrated Reports Results For The Fourth Quarter Of Fiscal 2014; Increases Dividend By 8%

Non-GAAP Measures 
To supplement the consolidated financial results prepared under GAAP, Maxim Integrated uses non-GAAP measures which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP results to exclude special items related to intangible asset amortization; acquisition-related inventory write-up; impairment of long-lived assets; severance and restructuring; acquisition-related costs; contingent consideration adjustments relating to certain acquisitions; legal settlement; in-process research and development abandoned; reserve for uncollectible note related to a divestiture; legal expenses related to Volterra; impairment of investments in privately-held companies; tax provision impacts due to fixed asset tax basis adjustments; research and development tax credits; international restructuring implementation and discontinued operations, net of tax. Management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and evaluate Maxim Integrated's current performance. Many analysts covering Maxim Integrated use the non-GAAP measures as well. Given management's use of these non-GAAP measures, Maxim Integrated believes these measures are important to investors in understanding Maxim Integrated's current and future operating results as seen through the eyes of management. In addition, management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in enabling them to better assess changes in Maxim Integrated's core business across different time periods. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP financial data and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures, even if they have similar names. The non-GAAP measures displayed in the table above include the following:

GAAP Gross Profit Excluding Special Items
The use of GAAP gross profit excluding special items allows management to evaluate the gross margin of the Company's core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of special items including intangible asset amortization and acquisition-related inventory write-up. In addition, it is an important component of management's internal performance measurement and reward process as it is used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets and forecasting future results. Management presents GAAP gross profit excluding special items to enable investors and analysts to evaluate our revenue generation performance relative to the direct costs of revenue of Maxim Integrated's core businesses.

GAAP Operating Expenses Excluding Special Items
The use of GAAP operating expenses excluding special items allows management to evaluate the operating expenses of the Company's core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of special items including intangible asset amortization; impairment of long-lived assets; severance and restructuring; acquisition-related costs; contingent consideration adjustments relating to certain acquisitions; in-process research and development abandoned; reserve for uncollectible note related to a divestiture; legal settlement; and legal expenses related to Volterra. In addition, it is an important component of management's internal performance measurement and reward process as it is used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets and forecasting future results. Management presents GAAP operating expenses excluding special items to enable investors and analysts to evaluate our core business and its direct operating expenses.  

GAAP Net Income and GAAP Net Income per Share Excluding Special Items
The use of GAAP net income and GAAP net income per share excluding special items allow management to evaluate the operating results of Maxim Integrated's core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of special items including intangible asset amortization; acquisition-related inventory write-up; impairment of long-lived assets; severance and restructuring; acquisition-related costs; contingent consideration adjustments relating to certain acquisitions; legal settlement; in-process research and development abandoned; reserve for uncollectible note related to a divestiture; legal expenses related to Volterra; impairment of investments in privately-held companies; research and development tax credits; discontinued operations, net of tax; and the tax provision impacts due to fixed asset tax basis adjustments; international restructuring implementation and discontinued operations, net of tax. In addition, they are important components of management's internal performance measurement and reward process as it is used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets and forecasting future results. Management presents GAAP net income and GAAP net income per share excluding special items to enable investors and analysts to understand the results of operations of Maxim Integrated's core businesses and to compare our results of operations on a more consistent basis against that of other companies in our industry.
