Atmel Reports Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results

  • Gain on sale of assets.

Atmel recognizes gains resulting from the sale of certain non-strategic assets that no longer align with Atmel's long-term operating plan. Atmel excludes these items from its non-GAAP financial measures primarily because these gains are individually discrete events and generally not reflective of the ongoing operating performance of Atmel's business and can distort period-over-period comparisons.

  • Settlement charges.

Settlement charges related to legal settlements undertaken in connection with actual or anticipated litigation, or activities undertaken in preparation for, or anticipation of, possible litigation related to intellectual property, customer claims or other matters affecting the business that are generally not reflective of ongoing company performance or ordinary course of litigation expenses.

  • Write-down of investments in privately-held companies.

Write-down of investments in privately-held companies relates to Atmel's proportional share of income or losses from investments accounted for under the equity method which is recorded in interest and other (expense) income, net.  Atmel excludes this item from its non-GAAP financial measures primarily because this is generally not reflective of ongoing operating performance of Atmel's business and can distort period-over-period comparisons.

  • Fair value adjustments to inventory from businesses acquired.

In connection with the acquisition of businesses, Atmel recognizes the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair value at the date of acquisition.  In connection with the Newport Media, Inc. acquisition in the third quarter of 2013, Atmel recorded a fair value increase to inventory which is amortized over the expected inventory turns and recognized in cost of revenue.  Excluding the fair value adjustments from businesses acquired from non-GAAP measures provides investors with a basis to compare Atmel against the performance of other companies without the variability caused by purchase accounting.
