- The revenue fell significantly faster than the industry average of 24.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 16.2%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
- 48.10% is the gross profit margin for ATMEL CORP which we consider to be strong. Regardless of ATML's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, ATML's net profit margin of 8.60% is significantly lower than the same period one year prior.
- Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. When compared to other companies in the Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment industry and the overall market, ATMEL CORP's return on equity exceeds that of the industry average and significantly exceeds that of the S&P 500.
- ATMEL CORP has exprienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. Earnings per share have declined over the last year. We anticipate that this should continue in the coming year.

For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 10.4% in earnings ($0.60 versus $0.67).
