RF Micro Devices Delivers Record March Quarterly Revenue

The Company believes disclosure of non-GAAP gross margin has economic substance because the excluded expenses do not represent continuing cash expenditures and, as described above, the Company has little control over the timing and amount of the expenses in question.

Non-GAAP operating income. Non-GAAP operating income excludes share-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, gain on sale of substantially all of our Bluetooth(R) assets and related restructuring charges, and adjustments associated with the discontinuation of our WLAN chipset development efforts. The Company believes that presentation of a measure of operating income that excludes amortization of intangible assets and share-based compensation expense is useful to both management and investors for the same reasons as described above with respect to our use of non-GAAP gross margin. The Company believes that the gain on sale of substantially all of our Bluetooth(R) assets and related restructuring charges, as well as the expenses and adjustments associated with the discontinuation of our WLAN chipset development efforts, do not constitute part of its ongoing operations and therefore, the exclusion of these costs provides management and investors with better visibility into the actual costs required to generate revenues over time and gives management and investors a more effective means of evaluating our historical and projected performance. The Company believes disclosure of non-GAAP operating income has economic substance because the excluded expenses are either non-recurring in nature or do not represent current cash expenditures.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share exclude the effects of share-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, gain on sale of substantially all of our Bluetooth(R) assets and related restructuring charges, adjustments associated with the discontinuation of our WLAN chipset development efforts, investment impairment and also reflect an adjustment of income tax expense associated with the exclusion of certain of these non-GAAP adjustments. The Company believes that presentation of measures of net income and net income per diluted share that exclude these items is useful to both management and investors for the reasons described above with respect to non- GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP operating income. The Company believes disclosure of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share has economic substance because the excluded expenses are either non-recurring in nature, do not represent current cash expenditures, or are variable in nature and thus unlikely to become recurring expenses.

Limitations of non-GAAP financial measures. The primary material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share as compared to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures of gross margin, operating income, net income and net income per diluted share is (i) they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies in the Company's industry, and (ii) they exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing full disclosure of the differences between these non-GAAP financial measures and the corresponding GAAP financial measures, including a reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP financial measures, to enable investors to perform their own analysis of our gross margin, operating income, net income and net income per diluted share.
