Microchip Technology Narrows Guidance Range For Second Quarter Of Fiscal 2014

Microchip Technology Incorporated (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today confirmed the mid-point of its financial guidance for its fiscal second quarter of 2014 ending September 30, 2013, and narrowed the revenue range. Microchip now expects net sales to be up between 3% and 5% sequentially. Microchip previously provided guidance on July 31, 2013 for net sales to be up between 2% and 6% sequentially. There will be no conference call associated with this press release. Microchip will be presenting at the Citi 2013 Global Technology Conference on Wednesday, September 4, 2013. A live webcast and replay of the Citi presentation will be available at www.microchip.com.

“Bookings activity in our business has been strong in July and August. The September quarter is progressing as we expected and we are narrowing the range of our revenue guidance, but leaving the midpoint of our guidance unchanged,” said Steve Sanghi, Microchip’s President and CEO.
