Hittite Microwave Corporation Revises Financial Results For The Fourth Quarter Of 2013

Hittite Microwave Corporation (NASDAQ:HITT) today announced that it revised its financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013 to correct an error in its accounting for foreign exchange losses related to an intra-company loan. The impact to the company’s results of operations from the correction of the error was to increase other expense by $0.9 million and to reduce net income by a corresponding amount. Revenue, gross profit and income from operations for the quarter remain unchanged.

Giving effect to the correction, net income for the quarter was $15.6 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, rather than $16.5 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, as previously reported on February 6, 2014. For the full year 2013, the company’s revised net income was $70.0 million, or $2.25 per diluted share, rather than $70.9 million, or $2.28 per diluted share, as previously reported. Revised financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013 accompany this release.

The error related to a loan by the company to its subsidiary in Norway that is denominated in Norwegian kroner. In its previously reported results, the company had recorded net foreign exchange losses related to this loan as a component of foreign currency translation losses within stockholders’ equity. In preparing to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for 2013, the company concluded that such net foreign exchange losses should instead have been classified within other expense. The loan has been substantially repaid in the first quarter of 2014, and accounting for the loan is not expected to have a material impact on future financial results.
