Net earnings attributable to Vishay stockholders for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012 include one-time tax benefits primarily related to the release of deferred tax valuation allowances in various jurisdictions. The years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 include other items affecting comparability. These items are summarized on the attached reconciliation schedule.

Commenting on the results for the fourth quarter 2013, Dr. Gerald Paul, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Revenues excluding the effect of a stronger Euro came in at the very high end of guidance. Distributors seem to be confident for the future while the inventory turns of our components at distributors remain acceptable. The ending backlog of $611 million, 20% higher compared to last year, indicates a good start into 2014.”
