The company reported third quarter fiscal year 2007 revenue of $45.3 million, down from $48.2 million in the previous quarter. Revenue during the third quarter of fiscal year 2006 was $48.3 million.
Total cash and marketable securities at the end of the third fiscal quarter were $264.2 million, compared with $261.7 million at the end of the prior quarter. This total reflects the net use of $10 million in cash associated with the previously announced acquisition of Caretta Integrated Circuits.
"We are pleased that our diversified and highly proprietary product portfolio has enabled us to deliver solid and predictable results and generate consistent cash flow," said David D. French, president and chief executive officer, Cirrus Logic. "I look forward to the conference call today to discuss the long-term strength of our business model."
Outlook for Fourth Quarter FY 2007 (ending Mar. 31, 2007):
-- Revenue is expected to range between $41 million and $44 million;
-- Cash generation from operations, including interest income, is expected to range between $6 million and $8 million.
As previously announced, the Board of Directors of Cirrus Logic formed a special committee to voluntarily review the company's historical stock option granting practices and related accounting matters. Since the review remains on-going, the company has limited the scope of its third quarter financial information released today to the selected preliminary financial information provided in this release. All preliminary results are subject to adjustment. The company does not expect to be in a position to announce final financial results for the second or third fiscal quarters until the Special Committee has completed its review. Due to the on-going review, it appears unlikely that the company will be able to file its Form 10-Q with the SEC for the third fiscal quarter by the Feb. 8, 2007, deadline. Please refer to the company's Form 8-K filed with the SEC on Oct. 23, 2006, for further information about the review.
Cirrus Logic management will hold a conference call to discuss certain limited results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2007 on Jan. 31, 2007, at 5:00 p.m. EST. Those wishing to join should call 303-262-2131 (passcode: Cirrus Logic) at approximately 4:50 p.m. EST. A replay of the conference call will also be available beginning one hour after the completion of the call, until Feb. 7, 2007. To access the recording, call 303-590-3000 (passcode: 11082660 #). A live and an archived webcast of the conference call will also be available via the company's web site.
