Consolidated net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 were $493.4 million, up 2.3% sequentially from net sales of $482.4 million in the immediately preceding quarter, and up 14.7% from net sales of $430.1 million in the prior year's fourth quarter. Consolidated GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was $111.5 million, or 50 cents per diluted share, up 5.8% from GAAP net income of $105.4 million, or 48 cents per diluted share, in the immediately preceding quarter, and up 86.8% from GAAP net income of $59.7 million, or 28 cents per diluted share, in the prior year's fourth quarter.

Consolidated non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was $141.3 million, or 64 cents per diluted share, up 6.3% from non-GAAP net income of $132.9 million, or 61 cents per diluted share, in the immediately preceding quarter, and up 29.3% from non-GAAP net income of $109.3 million, or 52 cents per diluted share, in the prior year's fourth quarter. For the fourth quarters of fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2013, our non-GAAP results exclude the effect of share-based compensation, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, inventory valuation costs, severance costs, and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions), non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures, and non-recurring tax events. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP and GAAP results is included in this press release.

Consolidated net sales for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014 were $1.931 billion, an increase of 22.1% from net sales of $1.582 billion in the prior fiscal year. On a GAAP basis, consolidated net income for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014 was $395.3 million, or $1.82 per diluted share, an increase of 210.3% from net income of $127.4 million, or 62 cents per diluted share in the prior fiscal year.

On a non-GAAP basis, consolidated net income for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014 was $531.0 million, or $2.45 per diluted share, an increase of 36.7% from net income of $388.5 million, or $1.89 per diluted share, in the prior fiscal year.

Microchip also announced today that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of 35.55 cents per share. The quarterly dividend is payable on June 3, 2014 to stockholders of record on May 21, 2014.

"We are very pleased with our execution in the March quarter and for fiscal year 2014," said Steve Sanghi, President and CEO. "Our non-GAAP operating results were excellent and we exceeded the midpoint of our guidance in net sales, gross margin, and operating margins while setting a new record for earnings per share."

Mr. Sanghi added, "The March quarter was our 94th consecutive quarter of profitability. During the quarter, we achieved 32.7% non-GAAP operating margins and we are making excellent progress towards our long-term model of 35% non-GAAP operating margins."

"The March quarter set all-time records in net sales for total microcontrollers, 16-bit microcontrollers and 32-bit microcontrollers," said Ganesh Moorthy, Chief Operating Officer. "We also set all-time records for 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit microcontroller revenue in fiscal 2014. Our revenues from 16-bit microcontrollers were up 44.2% and our revenues from 32-bit microcontrollers were up 73.0% in fiscal 2014 compared to fiscal 2013. Our microcontroller results continue to outperform the industry and we are gaining significant market share."

Rich Simoncic, Vice President, Analog and Interface Products Division, said, "Our analog net sales were up 32.0% in fiscal 2014 compared to fiscal 2013. Our April 1, 2014 acquisition of Supertex adds high voltage analog products and process technologies to our portfolio, and we are excited about the long-term opportunities that the combined company can achieve."

Eric Bjornholt, Microchip's Chief Financial Officer, said, "Our cash and investment balance grew by a record $183.1 million in the March 2014 quarter prior to our dividend payment. The dividend that we announced today marks the 41st occasion that we have increased our dividend payment, and cumulative dividends paid are over $2.2 billion."

Mr. Sanghi concluded, "We enter the June quarter with a good backlog position and the June quarter is normally a growth quarter for Microchip, coming off of the negative impact of the Lunar New Year on our Asia business in the March quarter. Given this backdrop we expect our non-GAAP net sales to be up between 5.3% and 8.3% sequentially. This guidance includes a projected $16.5 million in non-GAAP sales from Supertex. Without Supertex, revenue from Microchip's historical business is expected to be up between 2% and 5% sequentially, which is in line with our net sales results for the last three June quarters."

Microchip's Recent Highlights:

  • UBM Tech's (EETimes/EDN) 2014 Embedded Market Survey of design engineers once again ranked Microchip #1 for 8-, 16- and 32-bit MCUs, as well as DSPs, in answer to, "Which chip family would you consider for your next project?" (For respondents using processor speeds under 100 MHz.)
  • Microchip continued to lead the industry in 8-bit microcontroller innovation, announcing three new families of 8-bit PIC® MCUs during the quarter. In fact, the Company won EE Live!/ESC's annual Best of Show "Embeddy" award in the Hardware category, for its new PIC16F170X/171X MCUs. This family combines a large amount of integrated intelligent analog and Core Independent Peripherals, which can operate while the core is sleeping. More work can be done with this integrated peripheral hardware, which requires no code to operate, dramatically reducing current consumption, cost, board space and memory size. The end result is substantially lower development and system costs for a broad range of applications, in markets such as consumer, portable medical, LED lighting, battery charging, power supplies and motor control.
  • The peripheral-rich, low pin count PIC16(L)F161X family further expands Microchip's Core Independent Peripheral offerings, which offload timing-critical and core-intensive tasks from the CPU, allowing it to focus on other application tasks. Additionally, this family integrates fault-detecting hardware features to assist engineers in developing safety-critical applications.
  • The PIC12(L)F157X 8-bit MCU family features multiple 16-bit PWMs with an assortment of analog peripherals and serial communications in an 8-pin package. These MCUs deliver three full-featured 16-bit PWMs with independent timers, for applications where high resolution is needed, such as LED lighting, stepper motors, battery charging and other general-purpose applications.
  • To make it even easier for developers to create complex designs using its 16-bit dsPIC30 and dsPIC33 digital signal controllers (DSCs), such as sophisticated motor-control systems, Microchip updated its MPLAB® Device Blocks for Simulink® with multi-rate and interrupt capabilities. This software provides a set of user interfaces to MathWorks' Simulink graphical environment for simulation and model-based design, where code for the application is generated, compiled and loaded onto a target dsPIC® DSC in a single, one-click step.
  • Microchip also expanded its very broad Analog & Interface portfolio with two new device families for the growing energy-measurement market, as well as a new motor driver. The MCP39F501 power-monitoring IC offers high-accuracy signal acquisition and power calculations, providing a complete power-monitor solution for consumer, commercial and industrial products.
  • The MCP3913 and MCP3914 energy-measurement Analog Front Ends (AFEs) offer industry-leading accuracy for three-phase smart meters and multiple-load power monitoring applications. As the energy-metering infrastructure is being upgraded worldwide, designers are demanding increased AFE accuracy, performance and flexibility to develop the latest generation of smart meters. These features are also required by the designers of advanced power-monitoring systems for applications such as server power supplies and power distribution units, uninterruptible power supplies, smart power strips and data-acquisition products in the industrial and commercial markets.
  • The MCP8063 is a highly integrated, cost-effective, automotive AEC-Q100-qualified motor driver that delivers superior performance in a small, 8-pin, 4x4 mm DFN package. It is also the world's first to combine all of those features with 1.5A peak phase current for the 180-degree sinusoidal drive of a variety of three-phase brushless DC motor and fan applications. These features are ideal for a broad range of motor applications in markets such as the automotive, IT, industrial and home-appliance sectors, which are faced with increasing regulatory and consumer demands for continued reductions in cost, space, noise and power consumption; with better performance and safety.
  • To enable the continued proliferation of modern user interfaces in embedded systems, Microchip introduced the new MTCH6102 family of projected-capacitive touch controllers with the industry's lowest power consumption. These turnkey controllers make it easy for designers to add contemporary touch and gesture interfaces in cost-sensitive applications.
  • Microchip also grew its portfolio of the world's most reliable memory, with the 34AA04 Serial Presence Detect (SPD) EEPROM. This device is designed to work with the next generation of Double Data Rate 4 (DDR4) SDRAM modules used in high-speed PCs and laptops, while also supporting the older DDR2/3 platforms.

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2015 Outlook:

The following statements are based on current expectations. These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially. Due to the closing of our Supertex acquisition on April 1, 2014, we are not able to provide GAAP guidance at this time, as the purchase accounting valuation adjustments related to the acquisition including acquired intangibles and inventory write-up as well as other acquisition-related charges are not yet known. We are able to provide the following Non-GAAP guidance which includes Supertex:

� � � � Microchip Guidance - Non-GAAP1 Net Sales � � � $519.8 million to $534.6 million Gross Margin3 � � � 59.3% to 59.5% Operating Expenses3 � � � 26.6% to 27% Other Income (Expense) � � � ($6.9) million Tax rate � � � 10.2% to 10.6% Net Income � � � $143.7 million to $151.7 million Diluted Common Shares Outstanding2 � � � 224 million shares Earnings per Diluted Share2 � � � 64 cents to 68 cents

2 Earnings per share have been calculated based on the diluted shares outstanding of Microchip on a consolidated basis.

3 See Footnote 3 under the "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section of this release.

  • Excluding the Supertex acquisition, Microchip's inventory days at June 30, 2014 are expected to be reduced to between 107 days and 111 days. Our inventory position enables us to continue to service our customers with very short lead times while allowing us to control future capital expenditures. Our actual inventory level will depend on the inventory that our distributors decide to hold to support their customers, overall demand for our products and our production levels.
  • Excluding Supertex, capital expenditures for the quarter ending June 30, 2014 are expected to be approximately $40 million and capital expenditures for all of fiscal year 2015 are anticipated to be approximately $125 million. We are continuing to take actions to selectively invest in the equipment needed to support the expected growth of our new products and technologies.
  • Excluding Supertex, we expect net cash generation during the June quarter of $140 million to $160 million prior to the dividend payment and our acquisition related activities.

Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures: Our non-GAAP adjustments, where applicable, include the effect of share-based compensation, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, inventory valuation costs, restructuring costs, severance costs, earn-out adjustments and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions), non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures, gains on strategic investments, the related income tax implications of these items and non-recurring tax events. Our non-GAAP net sales reflect revenue from product in the acquired companies' distribution channel at the acquisition date that is not included in GAAP net sales.

� We are required to estimate the cost of certain forms of share-based compensation, including employee stock options, restricted stock units and our employee stock purchase plan, and to record a commensurate expense in our income statement. Share-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is affected by the price of our stock at the date of grant. The price of our stock is affected by market forces that are difficult to predict and are not within the control of management. Our other non-GAAP adjustments are either non-cash expenses or non-recurring expenses related to such transactions. Accordingly, management excludes all of these items from its internal operating forecasts and models. � We are using non-GAAP net sales, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross profit percentage, non-GAAP operating expenses in dollars and as a percentage of sales including non-GAAP research and development expenses and non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP other expense, net, non-GAAP income tax/tax rate, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share which exclude the items noted above, as applicable, to permit additional analysis of our performance. � Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they enhance the understanding of our historical financial performance and comparability between periods. Many of our investors have requested that we disclose this non-GAAP information because they believe it is useful in understanding our performance as it excludes non-cash and other charges that many investors feel may obscure our underlying operating results. � Management uses these non-GAAP measures to manage and assess the profitability of our business. Specifically, we do not consider such items when developing and monitoring our budgets and spending. Our determination of the above non-GAAP measures might not be the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it should not be construed as a substitute for amounts determined in accordance with GAAP. There are limitations associated with using non-GAAP measures, including that they exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance. Management compensates for this by presenting information on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for investors and providing reconciliations of the GAAP and non-GAAP results. �

Diluted Common Shares Outstanding can vary for, among other things, the trading price of our common stock, the actual exercise of options or vesting of restricted stock units, the potential for incremental dilutive shares from our convertible debentures (additional information regarding our share count is available in the investor relations section of our website under the heading "Supplemental Financial Information"), and the repurchase or the issuance of stock. The diluted common shares outstanding presented in the guidance table above assumes an average Microchip stock price in the June 2014 quarter of $48 per share (however, we make no prediction as to what our actual share price will be for such period or any other period and we cannot estimate what our stock option exercise activity will be during the quarter).

Generally, gross margin fluctuates over time, driven primarily by the mix of microcontrollers, analog products and memory products sold and licensing revenue; variances in manufacturing yields; fixed cost absorption; wafer fab loading levels; costs of wafers from foundries; inventory reserves; pricing pressures in our non-proprietary product lines; and competitive and economic conditions. Operating expenses fluctuate over time, primarily due to net sales and profit levels.
