Total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments increased by $34.4 million during the third quarter to $1.2 billion. Strong cash flow generated from operations was primarily offset by $60.1 million for dividends and $45.9 million in payments for previously acquired property and equipment.
Maxim is not currently providing detailed GAAP and non-GAAP financials for the quarter ending March 29, 2008 due to the previously announced requirement to restate its historical financial statements to record additional non-cash, stock-based compensation expense related to past stock-option grants. Consequently, limited financial data is being presented.
Maxim's third quarter net realizable bookings increased by 2.7% compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2008. The Company projects revenue for the fourth quarter to be in the range of $490 to $510 million.
Tunc Doluca, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "During my recent visits with customers in Europe and Asia, I saw firsthand the value of our improved execution. We have now achieved preferred supplier status at 10 of our 11 partner accounts who provide formal supplier ratings. Maxim has a well-established reputation for developing innovative analog and mixed-signal solutions. Through our focused efforts of the past year we have now earned the increased trust of our customers. Our improved position to deliver innovative solutions provides us a great opportunity to accelerate our growth."
A cash dividend for the third quarter of fiscal 2008 of $0.1875 per share will be paid on May 29, 2008 to stockholders of record on May 14, 2008.
