    Analog Devices Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2013 Results

    NORWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, today announced financial results for its fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year which ended November 2, 2013.

    "Revenue for the fourth quarter increased 1% sequentially, a good result in an uncertain macroeconomic climate," said Vincent Roche, President and CEO. "Operationally, the business performed well. Excluding special items, margins expanded relative to the prior quarter, operating cash flow was very strong at 42% of sales, and we returned $149 million to shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases."

    "Given the strength of our technology portfolio and customer relationships, we are optimistic about our future. However, in the near-term we are entering a slower seasonal period, with customer shutdowns and inventory reductions coinciding with the holidays in December and January. As a result, our plan is for revenue to decline in the first quarter compared to the prior quarter," said Mr. Roche. "By reducing factory utilization rates and keeping expenses under tight control, we will be in a strong position for operating leverage when growth resumes."

    ADI also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.34 per outstanding share of common stock. The dividend will be paid on December 17, 2013 to all shareholders of record at the close of business on December 6, 2013.
