Atmel Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Non-GAAP income from operations in the second quarter of 2013 was $27.6 million or 7.9% of revenue, compared to first quarter non-GAAP income from operations of $14.2 million or 4.3% of revenue, and second quarter 2012 non-GAAP income from operations of $43.0 million or 11.7% of revenue.  Refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation table included in this release for more details.

Income tax provision, on a GAAP basis, totaled $5.7 million for the second quarter of 2013. This compares to a benefit from income taxes of $14.4 million for the first quarter of 2013 and a provision for income taxes of $3.7 million for the second quarter of 2012.  Non-GAAP provision for income taxes for the second quarter of 2013 was $1.6 million compared to non-GAAP income tax provisions of $1.0 million for the first quarter of 2013 and $1.8 million for the second quarter of 2012.

Cash provided by operations totaled approximately $8.6 million for the second quarter of 2013, compared to cash used in operations of $12.0 million for the first quarter of 2013 and cash provided by operations of $7.9 million for the second quarter of 2012. Combined cash balances (cash and cash equivalents plus short-term investments) totaled $226.6 million at the end of the second quarter of 2013, a decrease of $18.3 million from the immediately preceding quarter. The decrease in cash balances during the second quarter of 2013 resulted principally from payments for previously accrued legal settlements, restructuring charges, and for common stock repurchases.
