Cypress Reports Third-Quarter 2012 Results

+ Cypress announced that its Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.11 per share, payable to holders of record of the company’s common stock at the close of business on September 27, 2012. The dividend will be paid today, October 18, 2012. The dividend represented a 4.1% yield and provided tax treatment that is deferred until the shares are sold.

+ Cypress named Hassane El-Khoury executive vice president of its Programmable Systems Division, which includes Cypress’s flagship PSoC products. El-Khoury had run Cypress’s automotive business since 2007, spearheading the company’s expansion into the Human-Machine Interface and Body Electronics segments of the automotive marketplace. He replaced Dinesh Ramanathan, who left Cypress to become the chief executive officer of a Silicon Valley startup.

Notes to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, Cypress uses non-GAAP financial measures which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to exclude certain items, as described in details below. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional and useful way of viewing aspects of Cypress’s operations that, when viewed in conjunction with Cypress’s GAAP results, provide a more comprehensive understanding of the various factors and trends affecting Cypress’s business and operations. Non-GAAP financial measures used by Cypress include:

  • Gross margin;
  • Research and development expenses;
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses;
  • Operating income (loss);
  • Net income (loss); and
  • Diluted net income (loss) per share.

Cypress uses each of these non-GAAP financial measures for internal managerial purposes, when providing its financial results and business outlook to the public, and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Cypress’s operational and financial performance of current and historical results. Management uses these non-GAAP measures for strategic and business decision making, internal budgeting, forecasting and resource allocation processes. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management’s internal comparisons to Cypress’s historical operating results and comparisons to competitors’ operating results.
