Jan. 27, 2011 (Business Wire) — Cirrus Logic, Inc. (Nasdaq: CRUS), a leader in high-precision analog and digital signal processing components, today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011, which ended Dec. 25, 2010.

Revenue for the quarter was $95.6 million, up 47 percent compared to the same quarter a year ago, and down five percent sequentially from the previous quarter. Gross margin for the quarter was 55 percent, up slightly from 54 percent in the third quarter a year ago, and down slightly from 56 percent for the previous quarter.

Total GAAP operating expenses for the quarter were approximately $29.4 million, compared to $27.7 million in the previous quarter. Non-GAAP operating expenses for the quarter were approximately $28.0 million compared to $27.6 million in the previous quarter.

Income from operations on a GAAP basis was approximately $23.1 million, representing an operating margin of 24 percent. Income from operations on a non-GAAP basis was $24.5 million, representing a non-GAAP operating margin of 26 percent

GAAP net income for the quarter was approximately $24.6 million, or $0.34 per share, based on 71.7 million average diluted shares outstanding. Non-GAAP net income was $24.2 million, or $0.34 per diluted share.

A reconciliation of the non-GAAP charges is included in a table below.

“Revenue from portable audio products exceeded our expectations, helping to drive overall Q3 revenue growth of 47 percent year over year,” said Jason Rhode, president and chief executive officer, Cirrus Logic. “Looking at both the fourth quarter and the next fiscal year, we believe we will continue to grow revenue at a faster rate than the semiconductor industry as a whole. With the production ramps continuing this next year in portable audio, new design wins in other audio markets, and ongoing design activity with our strategic energy initiatives, we are very excited about the opportunities ahead.”
