TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc (NASDAQ:TQNT), a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, announces its financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012, including the following highlights:

  • Revenue for the quarter was $233.6 million, up 16% from Q3 2012
  • Mobile Devices market revenue grew 19% sequentially from Q3 2012
  • Strong demand for 5GHz WLAN drove 66% sequential growth in connectivity in smartphones
  • Ramping high-performance LTE filters for Samsung, LG, HTC and Motorola Mobility smartphones
  • Record Optical sales in 2012 fueled by industry leading 40/100G modulator drivers
  • VSAT revenue up 40% sequentially with production launch of major Ka band program
  • Set industry record for gallium nitride (GaN) reliability performance

Commenting on the Company's financial results, Ralph Quinsey, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated “TriQuint's revenue for Q4 was $233.6 million and non-GAAP earnings per share was $0.04, both above our guidance. We are continuing to expand capacity for high performance filters in anticipation of stronger demand in the second half of 2013 and beyond. I believe these investments will lead to improved financial results for the company.”

Summary Financial Results for the Quarter and Year Ended December 31, 2012:

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $233.6 million, up 3% from the fourth quarter of 2011 and up 16% sequentially. Mobile Devices revenue grew 19%, Networks revenue grew 1% and Defense & Aerospace grew 36%, in each case, sequentially. Revenue for 2012 was $829.2 million, down 7% from 2011 due to a decrease in Mobile Devices revenue.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $72.0 million, or 31% of revenue, up from $67.1 million in the prior quarter. Operating expenses for 2012 were $274.7 million, up from $262.9 million in 2011. The increase in the fourth quarter and for 2012 was due to higher engineering expenses.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $3.8 million, or $(0.02) per diluted share. Net loss for 2012 was $26.2 million or $(0.16) per diluted share.

Non-GAAP

Operating expenses for 2012 were $254.4 million or 31% of revenue, up from $244.4 million in 2011. The increase in the fourth quarter and for 2012 was due to higher engineering expenses.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $6.2 million, or $0.04 per diluted share. Net loss for 2012 was $2.2 million, or $(0.01) per diluted share.

Please see the discussion of non-GAAP financial measures below and the attached supplemental schedule for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.

To access the conference call, please dial (888) 813-6582 domestically, or (706) 643-7082 internationally, approximately ten minutes prior to the beginning of the call, using passcode 88651773.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release provides financial measures for non-GAAP net income, diluted earnings per share, gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses and operating income that exclude equity compensation expense, non-cash tax (benefit) expense, certain charges associated with acquisitions, and other specifically identified non-routine items, and are therefore not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). The non-cash tax (benefit) expense includes certain deferred tax charges and benefits that do not result in a tax payment or tax refund. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance that enhances management's and investors' ability to evaluate TriQuint's operating results.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be used in isolation and should not be considered a substitute for any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool, including that other companies may calculate similar non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as a comparative tool. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amount excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures. The Company further compensates for the limitations of our use of non-GAAP financial measures by presenting comparable GAAP measures more prominently. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures contained within this press release with our GAAP net income and net income per share.

Forward-Looking Statements:
