MILPITAS, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 17, 2017 — Linear Technology Corporation (NASDAQ: LLTC), a leading, independent manufacturer of high performance linear integrated circuits, today reported financial results for the fiscal quarter ended January 1, 2017. Quarterly revenues of $375.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 increased $1.9 million or 0.5% over the previous quarter’s revenue of $373.9 million and increased $28.7 million or 8.3% over the $347.1 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal year 2016.
On a GAAP basis, net income of $124.0 million increased $8.9 million or 7.7% over the previous quarter’s net income of $115.1 million and increased $2.5 million or 2.0% over the second quarter of fiscal year 2016. Diluted earnings per share of $0.50 per share in the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 increased $0.03 per share or 6% over the previous quarter and was unchanged from the second quarter of fiscal year 2016.
According to Lothar Maier, CEO, “Revenue for our second fiscal quarter of $375.8 million was slightly higher than we guided and is up 8.3% over the second quarter of fiscal year 2016. This is a good result in what historically has been a weaker seasonal quarter for us. On a non-GAAP basis excluding merger-related charges totaling $10.8 million, non-GAAP gross margin, operating margin and earnings per share were 76.3%, 45.5% and $0.54, respectively, all increases over the prior quarter. The increase in revenue was aided by an increase in our Communication and Industrial markets while gross margin was up slightly primarily due to a richer product mix.
Due to the pending merger with Analog Devices, Inc., we expect that this will be our final earnings release as an independent company. We would like to thank our long-term investors who trusted our long-term market and operational strategies. Finally, we would like to thank the employees of Linear Technology who together over the course of 35 years helped to create a truly special company.”
