Silicon Labs Announces Third Quarter 2013 Results

Silicon Labs (NASDAQ: SLAB), a leader in high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), today reported financial results for its third quarter ended Sept. 28, 2013. Overall revenue in the third quarter was $146.9 million, an increase of 3.8 percent sequentially and a 1.7 percent decrease compared with the same period a year ago.

Financial Highlights

On a GAAP basis, gross margins were 60.0 percent. GAAP R&D investment increased on a sequential basis and year over year to $40.7 million. GAAP SG&A expenses increased both sequentially and year over year to $37.0 million. Resulting GAAP operating income as a percentage of revenue decreased both sequentially and year over year to 7.1 percent. GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.15, down 48.3 percent sequentially and down 37.5 percent year over year due primarily to Energy Micro acquisition-related items.

The company continues to expand its position in the Internet of Things (IoT) market with solid design win activity in home automation, smart energy and smart metering applications.
