Microsemi Corp. (Nasdaq:MSCC) today reported results for its fiscal 2004 third quarter.
Net sales for the quarter ended June 27, 2004 were $64.1 million, up 11 percent from net sales of $57.7 million in the prior quarter, and up 27 percent from net sales of $50.5 million in the year-ago third quarter. Third quarter pro forma net income was a record $6.0 million, or $0.10 per share diluted, up 329 percent from $1.4 million and $0.02 per share diluted in the year-ago third quarter and up 46 percent from the $4.1 million and $0.07 per share diluted in the prior quarter. Pro forma gross margin was 37.4 percent in the third quarter, up 130 basis points from the prior quarter and up 510 basis points from the year-ago quarter.
Including amortization of acquisition related intangible assets, restructuring costs, and other special charges and credits as reflected in the attached reconciliation of GAAP to Pro forma results, Microsemi reported GAAP earnings in the third quarter of $3.5 million or $0.06 per diluted share, up 192 percent from $1.2 million or $0.02 per diluted share in the year-ago quarter and up from the $1.1 million loss or $0.02 loss per diluted share in the prior quarter.
"We continue to grow our business in our high-performance analog mixed signal and high-reliability discrete markets and improve our gross margins significantly," said James J. Peterson, president and CEO. He also stated, "These results again demonstrate the strength in our diversification in both products and markets."
The book-to-bill ratio for the quarter was 1.13. Business Outlook
Sequentially sales are expected to be up 5 to 7 percent. Pro forma earnings per share diluted for the fourth quarter are expected to be $0.11 to $0.12. GAAP-based earnings, excluding restructuring-related costs related to our plant consolidations program, are expected to be $0.10 to $0.11 per share diluted, reflecting the recurring $0.2 million after tax charge for amortization of acquisition-related intangible costs. Sequentially, pro forma gross margin percentage is expected to increase 90 to 140 basis points.

To supplement the consolidated financial results prepared under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), Microsemi uses a non-GAAP conforming, or pro forma measure of results that equals GAAP results adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses and gains. Pro forma results give an indication of Microsemi's baseline performance in regard to the operating results before gains, losses or other charges that are considered by management to be outside of the company's core operating results. In addition, pro forma results are among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP and may be materially different from pro forma measures used by other companies. Microsemi computes pro forma results principally by adjusting GAAP results with the impact of acquisition-related charges, restructuring charges, and other non-recurring charges and credits.
