The non-GAAP results the Company provides exclude the effects of accelerated depreciation, restructuring costs, amortization of intangibles, the associated net tax effects of these items, and discrete tax provisions and benefits. The Company excludes any tax provisions (benefits) that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability.
A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the Company’s reported net income (loss), gross margin (referred to as gross profit in attached schedules) and operating income (loss) in accordance with U.S. GAAP are set forth in the attached schedules below.
March Quarter Outlook
Mr. Khaykin noted: “Looking ahead to the March quarter, we expect to see continued stable demand overall, with seasonal growth in our industrial end market offsetting seasonal weakness in our computing and consumer end markets. As a result, we currently expect revenue for the March quarter to range between $265 million to $275 million.
We remain optimistic for calendar year 2014 as we see a steady strengthening of fundamentals, and new design wins continue to ramp. In 2014, we remain well positioned for growth in the server market with digital power management, automotive IGBTs for hybrid and electric vehicles and power modules for the industrial and appliance end markets.”
