Commenting on the fourth quarter and full-year 2013 results, Micrel's President and CEO Ray Zinn said, "The fourth quarter was an exceptional quarter for Micrel with revenue up 3.2% to $60.0 million. Operationally, fourth quarter gross margins held steady compared to the prior quarter and we made good progress in reducing inventory levels and operational costs. These fourth quarter results wrapped up a solid earnings year for Micrel. Despite the economic uncertainty facing our industry and the slow pace of the recovery that persisted throughout the year, bookings were strong during 2013 and yielded a book-to-bill ratio of around one for the full year. In addition, I am pleased with the new products we introduced during the past year. We continue to experience sustained design win momentum, and we are happy with the traction that our products are generating in the marketplace. We continue to control our expenses, buy back stock and pay a dividend as the Company seeks to return most of its free cash flow back to investors."
