Outlook for the Quarter Ending March 31, 2013

The company’s current expectations for the first quarter 2013 are:
  • Revenue in the range of $50 million to $55 million, primarily reflecting seasonally lower business activity and a full quarter impact of changes in product prices negotiated in the fourth quarter
  • Non-GAAP gross margin in the range of 22% to 24%, primarily reflecting the impact of seasonality and pricing changes noted above, related lower wafer fab utilization and expectations for continued higher manufacturing costs relating to one of the company’s high speed products
  • Diluted loss per share from continuing operations in the range of $0.25 to $0.35, and on a Non-GAAP basis in the range of a loss of $0.15 to $0.25 per share

The outlook for the first quarter of 2013 excludes the results of operations from LAPIS OCU as the transaction is not yet closed. The Non-GAAP outlook for the first quarter of 2013 excludes the expected amortization of intangibles and other assets of approximately $1.3 million, the anticipated impact of stock-based compensation of approximately $1.2 million, and transaction expenses related to the acquisition of LAPIS OCU of approximately $1.2 million, of which $1.0 million is estimated to relate to cost of goods sold.
