“We delivered solid third quarter results highlighted by increased revenue from the industrial, consumer, and automotive end markets,” said Steve Laub, Atmel’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are well positioned in attractive markets with leadership products and despite a challenging industry environment we expect further margin expansion in the fourth quarter.”
Cash provided by operations totaled approximately $82.1 million for the third quarter of 2013, compared to $8.6 million for the second quarter of 2013 and $53.6 million for the third quarter of 2012. Combined cash balances (cash and cash equivalents plus short-term investments) totaled $270.9 million at the end of the third quarter of 2013, an increase of $44.3 million from the immediately preceding quarter. This increase resulted principally from improved operating performance, a substantial reduction in inventory and lower receivables. The increase in cash balances is after repurchasing $34.4 million of common stock.
