Management Qualitative Comments

"The InvenSense team continued to deliver solid results in a highly competitive market this quarter where we were able to deliver above the higher end of our stated revenue outlook for Q4 of $52.0 million to $54.0 million, with revenue for the quarter of $55.2 million. Our March quarter revenue increased 67% year over year, with smartphones and tablets leading the growth, representing over 80% of total revenue." said Behrooz Abdi, CEO and President. "Also, last quarter our customer design pipeline for fiscal year 2014 continued to expand significantly across all of our products, with solid traction for the 6-axis product (MPU-6500), 9-axis product (MPU-9250), and 2-axis (IDG-2020) in optical image stabilization applications. We look forward to ramping these design wins to production as they contribute to our continued market share gain in mobile and computing, and consumer market segments."

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

As above, in addition to the company's condensed consolidated financial statements, which are presented according to GAAP, the company provides certain non-GAAP financial information that excludes stock-based compensation expenses, net of tax, recorded under Accounting Standard Codification 718-10 and other non-GAAP financial adjustments. The company uses these non-GAAP measures in its own financial and operational decision-making processes. Further, the company believes that these non-GAAP measures offer an important analytical tool to help investors understand the company's core operating results and trends, and to facilitate comparability with the operating results of other companies that provide similar non-GAAP measures. These non-GAAP measures have certain limitations as analytical tools and are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial information. For example, stock-based compensation is an important component of the company's compensation mix, and will continue to result in significant expenses in the company's GAAP results for the foreseeable future, but is not reflected in the non-GAAP measures. Also, other companies, including companies in InvenSense's industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.
