CIRRUS LOGIC, INC.
NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)

1. Basis of Presentation

     The consolidated condensed financial statements have been prepared by Cirrus Logic, Inc. (“Cirrus Logic,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”) pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”). The accompanying unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements do not include complete footnotes and financial presentations. As a result, these financial statements should be read along with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended March 31, 2012, included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Commission on May 30, 2012. In our opinion, the financial statements reflect all adjustments, including normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results and cash flows for those periods presented. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with United States (“U.S.”) generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, as well as disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ from those estimates and assumptions. Moreover, the results of operations for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the entire year. Certain reclassifications have been made to the fiscal year 2012 presentation to conform to the fiscal year 2013 presentation. This reclassification had no effect on the results of operations or stockholders’ equity.

2. Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

     In May 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (ASC Topic 220) — Presentation of Comprehensive Income. With this update, an entity has the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. The amendments in this ASU should be applied retrospectively, and are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company has adopted this guidance in the current quarter. Our adoption of this ASU affects financial statement presentation only, and does not have a material impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

3. Marketable Securities

     The Company’s investments that have original maturities greater than 90 days have been classified as available-for-sale securities in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Marketable securities are categorized on the consolidated condensed balance sheet as short- and long-term marketable securities, as appropriate.

     The following table is a summary of available-for-sale securities at June 30, 2012 (in thousands):

Estimated
Gross Gross Fair Value
Amortized Unrealized Unrealized (Net Carrying
Cost         Gains         Losses         Amount)
Corporate debt securities $ 32,554 $ 21 $ (12 ) $ 32,563
U.S. Treasury securities 16,762   2 (2 ) 16,762
Agency discount notes 17,028 4 - 17,032
Commercial paper 16,006 4 (8 ) 16,002
       Total securities $      82,350 $ 31 $                (22 ) $ 82,359

- 6 -



     The Company’s specifically identified gross unrealized losses of $22 thousand relates to 16 different securities with total amortized cost of approximately $31.1 million at June 30, 2012. Because the Company does not intend to sell the investments at a loss and the Company will not be required to sell the investments before recovery of its amortized cost basis, it did not consider the investment in these securities to be other-than-temporarily impaired at June 30, 2012. Further, the securities with gross unrealized losses had been in a continuous unrealized loss position for less than 12 months as of June 30, 2012. All of the Company’s available-for-sale investments have contractual maturities of less than one year at June 30, 2012.

     The following table is a summary of available-for-sale securities at March 31, 2012 (in thousands):

Estimated
Gross Gross Fair Value
Amortized Unrealized         Unrealized         (Net Carrying
Cost         Gains   Losses Amount)
Corporate debt securities $ 48,011 $ 33 $ (19 ) $ 48,025
U.S. Treasury securities 30,264 1 (4 ) 30,261
Agency discount notes 16,789 8 (1 ) 16,796
Commercial paper 23,719 5 (15 ) 23,709
       Total securities $      118,783 $      47 $            (39 ) $      118,791

     The Company’s specifically identified gross unrealized losses of $39 thousand relates to 37 different securities with total amortized cost of approximately $72.6 million at March 31, 2012. Because the Company does not intend to sell the investments at a loss and the Company will not be required to sell the investments before recovery of its amortized cost basis, it did not consider the investment in these securities to be other-than-temporarily impaired at March 31, 2012. Further, the securities with gross unrealized losses had been in a continuous unrealized loss position for less than 12 months as of March 31, 2012.

4. Fair Value of Financial Instruments

     The Company has determined that the only assets and liabilities in the Company’s financial statements that are required to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis are the Company’s cash equivalents and investment portfolio assets. The Company defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The Company applies the following fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value into three levels and bases the categorization within the hierarchy upon the lowest level of input that is available and significant to the fair value measurement. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements).

  • Level 1 - Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
  • Level 2 - Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
  • Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

     The Company’s investment portfolio assets consist of money market funds, commercial paper, corporate debt, U.S. Treasury securities, and obligations of U.S. government-sponsored enterprises, and are reflected on our consolidated condensed balance sheet under the headings cash and cash equivalents, marketable securities, and long-term marketable securities. The Company determines the fair value of its investment portfolio assets by obtaining non-binding market prices from its third-party portfolio managers on the last day of the quarter, whose sources may use quoted prices in active markets for identical assets (Level 1 inputs) or inputs other than quoted prices that are observable either directly or indirectly (Level 2 inputs) in determining fair value. As of June 30, 2012, the Company classified its investment portfolio assets as Level 1 or Level 2 inputs. The Company has no Level 3 assets. There were no transfers between Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 measurements for the three month period ending June 30, 2012.

     The following are the components of accounts receivable, net (in thousands):

Gross accounts receivable $ 49,613 $ 44,524

6. Inventories

     Inventories are comprised of the following (in thousands):

June 30,       March 31,
2012 2012
Work in process $ 61,109 $ 30,921
Finished goods 35,681 24,994
$      96,790 $      55,915

     The increase in inventory balances at June 30, 2012, as compared to March 31, 2012, is primarily related to the expected increased demand for our products, and reflects planned inventory builds.

7. Revolving Line of Credit

     On April 19, 2012, the Company entered into a revolving credit agreement (“Credit Agreement”) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent and issuing lender, Barclays Bank, as syndication agent, Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and Barclays Capital, as joint lead arrangers and co-book managers. The aggregate borrowing limit under the unsecured revolving credit facility is $100 million with a $15 million letter of credit sublimit and is intended to provide the Company with short-term borrowings for working capital and other general corporate purposes. The interest rate payable is, at the Company's election, (i) a base rate plus the applicable margin, where the base rate is determined by reference to the highest of 1) the prime rate publicly announced by the administrative agent, 2) the Federal Funds Rate plus 0.50%, and 3) LIBOR for a one month period plus the difference between the applicable margin for LIBOR rate loans and the applicable margin for base rate loans, or (ii) the LIBOR rate plus the applicable margin that varies according to the leverage ratio of the borrower. Certain representations and warranties are required under the Credit Agreement, and the borrower must be in compliance with specified financial covenants, including (i) the requirement that the Company maintain a ratio of consolidated funded indebtedness to consolidated EBITDA of not greater than 1.75 to 1.0, computed in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement, and (ii) a minimum ratio of consolidated EBITDA to consolidated interest expense of not less than 3.50 to 1.0. At June 30, 2012, the Company was in compliance with these covenants.

     At June 30, 2012, the Company had no outstanding amounts under the facility.

8. Income Taxes

     We recorded income tax expense of $3.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, which was primarily non-cash charges, on pre-tax income of $10.6 million, yielding an effective tax rate of 34.5 percent. Our income tax expense for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 is based on estimated effective tax rates derived from an estimate of consolidated earnings before taxes, adjusted for nondeductible expenses and other permanent differences for fiscal year 2013. The estimated effective tax rate was impacted primarily by the worldwide mix of consolidated earnings before taxes. Our income tax expense for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 was slightly below the federal statutory rate primarily due to the effect of permanent differences that are deductible for tax purposes.

     We recorded income tax expense of $5.3 million, primarily a non-cash charge, on pre-tax income of $14.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, yielding an effective tax rate of 36.6 percent. Our income tax expense for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 is based on an estimated effective tax rate derived from an estimate of consolidated earnings before taxes, adjusted for nondeductible expenses and other permanent differences for fiscal year 2012. The estimated effective tax rate was impacted primarily by the worldwide mix of consolidated earnings before taxes. Our income tax expense for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 was slightly above the federal statutory rate primarily due to the effect of state income taxes and nondeductible expenses.

     We had no unrecognized tax benefits as of June 30, 2012. We do not expect our unrecognized tax benefits to change significantly over the next 12 months. Our policy is to recognize interest and penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense. As of June 30, 2012, the balance of accrued interest and penalties was zero. No interest or penalties were incurred during the first three months of fiscal year 2013.

     The Company and its subsidiaries are subject to U.S. federal income tax as well as income tax in multiple state and foreign jurisdictions. Fiscal years 2009 through 2012 remain open to examination by the major taxing jurisdictions to which we are subject.

9. Net Income Per Share

     Basic net income per share is based on the weighted effect of common shares issued and outstanding and is calculated by dividing net income by the basic weighted average shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares used in the basic net income per share calculation, plus the equivalent number of common shares that would be issued assuming exercise or conversion of all potentially dilutive items outstanding. These potentially dilutive items consist primarily of outstanding stock options and restricted stock units.

     The weighted average outstanding options excluded from our diluted calculation for the three months ended June 30, 2012, and June 25, 2011, were 64,000, and 901,000, respectively, as the strike price of the options exceeded the average market price during the respective periods.

10. Legal Matters

     From time to time, we are involved in legal proceedings concerning matters arising in connection with the conduct of our business activities. We regularly evaluate the status of legal proceedings in which we are involved, to assess whether a loss is probable or there is a reasonable possibility that a loss or additional loss may have been incurred and determine if accruals are appropriate. We further evaluate each legal proceeding to assess whether an estimate of possible loss or range of loss can be made, if accruals are not appropriate.

     For the case described below, management is unable to provide a meaningful estimate of the possible loss or range of possible loss because, among other reasons, (i) the proceedings are in various stages; (ii) damages have not been sought; (iii) damages are unsupported and/or exaggerated; (iv) there is uncertainty as to the outcome of pending appeals or motions; (v) there are significant factual issues to be resolved; and/or (vi) there are novel legal issues or unsettled legal theories to be presented or a large number of parties. For these cases, however, management does not believe, based on currently available information, that the outcomes of these proceedings will have a material adverse effect on our financial condition. However, the ultimate resolutions of these various proceedings and matters are inherently difficult to predict; as such, our operating results could be materially affected by the unfavorable resolution of one or more of these proceedings or matters for any particular period, depending, in part, upon the operating results for such period.

     On June 4, 2012, U.S. Ethernet Innovations, LLC (the “Plaintiff”) filed suit against Cirrus Logic and two other defendants in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Texas. The Plaintiff alleges that Cirrus Logic infringed four U.S. patents relating to Ethernet technology. In its complaint, the Plaintiff indicated that it is seeking unspecified monetary damages, including up to treble damages for willful infringement. We answered the complaint on June 29, 2012 denying the allegations of infringement and seeking a declaratory judgment that the patents in suit were invalid and not infringed.

11. Stockholders’ Equity

     The Company issued 0.2 million and 0.1 million shares of common stock for the three month periods ending June 30, 2012 and June 25, 2011, respectively, in connection with stock option exercises during the periods.

12. Segment Information

     We determine our operating segments in accordance with FASB guidelines. Our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) has been identified as the chief operating decision maker under these guidelines.

     The Company operates and tracks its results in one reportable segment based on the aggregation of activity from its two product lines. Our CEO receives and uses enterprise-wide financial information to assess financial performance and allocate resources, rather than detailed information at a product line level. Additionally, our product lines have similar characteristics and customers. They share operations support functions such as sales, public relations, supply chain management, various research and development and engineering support, in addition to the general and administrative functions of human resources, legal, finance and information technology. Therefore, there is no complete, discrete financial information maintained for these product lines.

     Revenue from our product lines are as follows (in thousands):

Critical Accounting Policies

     Our discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations are based upon the unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements included in this report, which have been prepared in accordance with U. S. GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts. We evaluate the estimates on an on-going basis. We base these estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions and conditions.

     There were no material changes in the first three months of fiscal year 2013 to the information provided under the heading “Critical Accounting Policies” included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

     In May 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (ASC Topic 220) — Presentation of Comprehensive Income. With this update, an entity has the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. The amendments in this ASU should be applied retrospectively, and are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company has adopted this guidance in the current quarter. Our adoption of this ASU affects financial statement presentation only, and does not have a material impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Results of Operations

     The following table summarizes the results of our operations for the first three months of fiscal years 2013 and 2012 as a percentage of net sales. All percentage amounts were calculated using the underlying data in thousands, unaudited:

Three Months Ended
June 30, June 25,
2012       2011
Net sales 100 % 100 %
Gross Margin 54 % 52 %
Research and development 25 % 20 %
Selling, general and administrative 18 % 16 %
Income from operations 11 % 16 %
Interest income 0 % 0 %
Other income (expense), net 0 % 0 %
Income before income taxes 11 % 16 %
Provision for income taxes 4 % 6 %
Net income 7 % 10 %

Net Sales

     Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 increased $6.8 million, or 7 percent to $99.0 million from $92.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. Net sales from our audio products increased $9.6 million, or 14 percent, primarily due to continued increases in portable sales in the current quarter versus the same time period in the prior fiscal year. Energy product sales decreased $2.9 million, or 14 percent, during the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 versus the comparable quarter of the prior fiscal year due primarily to sales reductions of our power amplifier and power meter products.

     Export sales, principally to Asia, including sales to U.S.-based customers with manufacturing plants overseas, were 86 percent of net sales during the first quarter of each of fiscal years 2013 and 2012, respectively. Our sales are denominated primarily in U.S. dollars. As a result, we have not entered into foreign currency hedging contracts.

     Since the components we produce are largely proprietary and generally not available from second sources, we consider our end customer to be the entity specifying the use of our component in their design. These end customers may then purchase our products directly from us, from an external sales representative or distributor, or through a third party manufacturer contracted to produce their designs. For the first quarter of fiscal years 2013 and 2012, our ten largest end customers represented approximately 72 percent and 68 percent of our sales, respectively.

- 13 -



     We had one end customer, Apple Inc. that purchased through multiple contract manufacturers and represented approximately 59 percent and 53 percent of the Company’s total sales for the first quarter of fiscal years 2013 and 2012, respectively.

     We had one distributor, Avnet Inc., which represented approximately 13 percent and 20 percent of our sales for the three month periods ending June 30, 2012 and June 25, 2011, respectively.

     For more information, please see Part II—Item 1A—“We depend on a limited number of customers and distributors for a substantial portion of our sales, and the loss of, or a significant reduction in orders from, any key customer or distributor could significantly reduce our sales.”

     No other end customer or distributor represented more than 10 percent of net sales for the three month periods ending June 30, 2012, or June 25, 2011.

Gross Margin

     Gross margin was 54.0 percent in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, up from 51.7 percent in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. Much of the year over year increase in gross margin was attributable to a production issue which deteriorated gross margin in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. The increase in gross margin was slightly offset by a decrease in the gross margin and mix of some of our energy products.

Research and Development Expense

     Research and development expense for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $24.9 million, an increase of $6.1 million, or 33 percent, from $18.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. This increase was primarily due to a 22 percent increase in research and development headcount and the associated product development and employee-related expenses.

Selling, General and Administrative Expense

     Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expense in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $18.1 million, an increase of $3.5 million, or 24 percent, from $14.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. The increase was primarily attributable to increased employee-related expenses, partially due to increases in SG&A headcount, specifically in the sales and marketing and information technology areas.

Income Taxes

     We recorded income tax expense of $3.6 million and $5.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal years 2013 and 2012, respectively, both of which were primarily non-cash charges, on pre-tax income of $10.6 million and $14.5 million, respectively, yielding effective tax rates of 34.5 percent and 36.6 percent, respectively. Our income tax expense for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 is based on estimated effective tax rates derived from an estimate of consolidated earnings before taxes, adjusted for nondeductible expenses and other permanent differences for fiscal year 2013. The estimated effective tax rates were impacted primarily by the worldwide mix of consolidated earnings before taxes. Our income tax expense for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 was slightly below the federal statutory rate primarily due to the effect of permanent differences that are deductible for tax purposes.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

     We require cash to fund our operating expenses and working capital requirements, including outlays for research and development, capital expenditures, stock repurchases, investments in marketable securities, and strategic acquisitions. Our principal sources of liquidity are cash on hand, cash generated from operations, cash generated from the sale and maturity of marketable securities, and funds from equity issuances.

- 14 -



     Cash provided by operating activities is net income adjusted for certain non-cash items and changes in certain current assets and current liabilities. Our operational cash flows are affected by the ability of our operations to generate cash, and our management of our assets and liabilities, including both working capital and long-term assets and liabilities. Net cash used in operating activities was $0.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 as compared to $10.6 million provided by operating activities for the corresponding period of fiscal year 2012. The primary use of cash in operations during the current period was related to a $19.1 million net decrease in working capital. Working capital fluctuates depending on end-market demand and our management of certain items such as receivables, inventory and payables. In times of anticipated escalating demand, such as in the current period, our working capital requirements increase as we purchase additional manufacturing materials and increase production; this activity increased our inventory balances significantly in the first quarter of 2013. The primary source of cash from operations during the corresponding period of fiscal year 2012 was related to the cash components of our net income, which was partially offset by an $8.2 million increase in working capital.

     Net cash provided by investing activities was $17.9 million during the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 as compared to $50.0 million during the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, primarily as a result of net proceeds from the sale of marketable securities of $36.4 million, offset by capital expenditures of $18.4 million. We utilized $17.3 million for the purchase of property, equipment, and software, including approximately $12.0 million in our new headquarters facility construction costs and $5.0 million for testing-related equipment for our products in the current quarter. For the corresponding period in fiscal year 2012, a net $63.9 million was received from the sale and maturity of marketable securities. Further, we utilized $14.3 million for the purchase of property, equipment, software, and technology assets.

     Net cash provided by financing activities was $1.0 million during the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 as compared to a $56.1 million use in cash from financing activities during the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. The cash provided during the first three months of fiscal year 2013 was due to the issuance of common stock, net of fees. The use of cash during the first three months of fiscal year 2012 was primarily driven by the repurchase and retirement of $56.5 million of Company stock.

     The Company continued construction of our new headquarters facility in Austin, Texas, with completion expected in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. We estimate that total facility construction costs and the costs related to furniture, fixtures, and equipment to fully move our headquarters employees into this new facility will be approximately $46.8 million. Through June 30, 2012, we have paid $35.0 million related to the new building, leaving an anticipated $11.8 million to be paid of which approximately $3 million is accrued at June 30, 2012, under the caption “Other accrued liabilities” on the consolidated condensed balance sheet. We have funded the costs related to this project with cash flows from operations and expect the remainder of the project will be funded internally from existing and future cash flows.

     We have not paid cash dividends on our common stock and currently intend to continue our policy of retaining any earnings for reinvestment in our business. Although we cannot give assurance that we will be able to generate cash in the future, we anticipate that our existing capital resources and cash flow generated from future operations will enable us to maintain our current level of operations for at least the next 12 months.

Revolving Credit Facility

     On April 19, 2012 (the “Closing Date”), we entered into a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent and Issuing Lender, Barclays Bank, as Syndication Agent, Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and Barclays Capital, as Joint Lead Arrangers and Co-Book Managers, and the lenders referred to therein (the “Lenders”).

     The Credit Agreement provides for a $100 million unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) with a $15 million letter of credit sublimit. The Credit Facility matures on the earliest to occur of (a) the first anniversary of the Closing Date, (b) the date of termination of the Commitments as a result of a permanent reduction of all of the Commitments by the Company or (c) the date of termination of the Commitments as a result of an Event of Default (the “Maturity Date”). The Company must repay the outstanding principal amount of all borrowings, together with all accrued but unpaid interest thereon, on the Maturity Date.

- 15 -



     Borrowings under the Credit Facility may, at the Company’s election, bear interest at either (a) a Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin (“Base Rate Loans”), where the Base Rate is determined by reference to the highest of (i) the prime rate publicly announced from time to time by the Administrative Agent, (ii) the Federal Funds Rate plus 0.50% and (iii) if available and not less than 0%, LIBOR for an interest period of one month plus the difference between the Applicable Margin for LIBOR Rate Loans and the Applicable Margin for Base Rate Loans at such time; or (b) a LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Margin (“LIBOR Rate Loans”), where the Libor Rate is determined by the Administrative Agent pursuant to a formula under which the LIBOR Rate is equal to LIBOR divided by an amount equal to 1.00 minus the Eurodollar Reserve Percentage. The Applicable Margin ranges from 0% to .25% per annum for Base Rate Loans and 1.25% to 1.75% per annum for LIBOR Rate Loans.

     A Commitment Fee accrues at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Margin, which ranges from 0.20% to 0.30% per annum, on the average daily unused portion of the Commitment of the non-defaulting Lenders.

     The exact Applicable Margin and Commitment Fee will depend upon the Company’s performance under specified financial criteria.

     With certain exceptions relating to LIBOR Rate Loans, the Company may prepay borrowings, in whole or in part, at any time upon prior written notice to the Administrative Agent. If, at any time, the total of outstanding borrowings and outstanding letters of credit exceeds the Commitments under the Credit Facility, the Company must prepay the amount of the excess immediately upon notice from the Administrative Agent.

     The Credit Agreement contains customary affirmative covenants, including, among others, covenants regarding the payment of taxes and other obligations, maintenance of insurance, reporting requirements and compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Further, the Credit Agreement contains customary negative covenants limiting the ability of the Company or any Subsidiary Guarantors to, among other things, incur debt, grant liens, make investments, effect certain fundamental changes, make certain asset dispositions, make certain restricted payments, enter into certain transactions with Affiliates and permit aggregate Capital Expenditures to exceed $90.0 million on a rolling four-quarter basis. The Credit Facility also contains certain negative financial covenants providing that (a) the ratio of Consolidated funded indebtedness to Consolidated EBITDA for the prior four consecutive quarters must not be greater than 1.75 to 1.00 and (b) the ratio of Consolidated EBITDA for the prior four consecutive quarters to Consolidated interest expense for the prior four consecutive quarters must not be less than 3.50 to 1.00.

     Upon an Event of Default, the Lenders may declare all outstanding principal and accrued but unpaid interest under the Credit Facility immediately due and payable and may exercise the other rights and remedies provided for under the Credit Agreement. Events of Default under the Credit Agreement include payment defaults, cross defaults with certain other indebtedness, breaches of covenants or representations, warranties, certifications or statements of fact, Changes in Control and bankruptcy events. In certain circumstances, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Credit Agreement provides that all outstanding obligations will bear interest at the Default Rate.

     At July 27, 2012, the Company had no outstanding amounts under the Credit Facility.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

     We are exposed to market risks associated with interest rates on our debt securities, currency movements on non-U.S. dollar denominated assets and liabilities, and the effect of market factors on the value of our marketable securities. We assess these risks on a regular basis and have established policies that are designed to protect against the adverse effects of these and other potential exposures. For a description of our market risks, see “Part II – Item 7A – Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk” in our 2012 Form 10-K. There have been no significant changes to our exposure to market risks since we filed our 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

- 16 -



ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures

     As required by Rule 13a-15(b) of the Exchange Act, we have evaluated, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this Form 10-Q. Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure and is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Commission. Based upon the evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of June 30, 2012 at the reasonable assurance level.

Changes in control over financial reporting

     There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during our most recent fiscal quarter that has materially affected or is reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

     From time to time, we are involved in a number of legal proceedings concerning matters arising in connection with the conduct of our business activities. We regularly evaluate the status of legal proceedings in which we are involved, to assess whether a loss is probable or there is a reasonable possibility that a loss or additional loss may have been incurred and determine if accruals are appropriate. We further evaluate each legal proceeding to assess whether an estimate of possible loss or range of loss can be made, if accruals are not appropriate.

     For the case described below, management is unable to provide a meaningful estimate of the possible loss or range of possible loss because, among other reasons, (i) the proceedings are in various stages; (ii) damages have not been sought; (iii) damages are unsupported and/or exaggerated; (iv) there is uncertainty as to the outcome of pending appeals or motions; (v) there are significant factual issues to be resolved; and/or (vi) there are novel legal issues or unsettled legal theories to be presented or a large number of parties. For these cases, however, management does not believe, based on currently available information, that the outcomes of these proceedings will have a material adverse effect on our financial condition. However, the ultimate resolutions of these various proceedings and matters are inherently difficult to predict; as such, our operating results could be materially affected by the unfavorable resolution of one or more of these proceedings or matters for any particular period, depending, in part, upon the operating results for such period.

     On June 4, 2012, U.S. Ethernet Innovations, LLC (the “Plaintiff”) filed suit against Cirrus Logic and two other defendants in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Texas. The Plaintiff alleges that Cirrus Logic infringed four U.S. patents relating to Ethernet technology. In its complaint, the Plaintiff indicated that it is seeking unspecified monetary damages, including up to treble damages for willful infringement. We answered the complaint on June 29, 2012 denying the allegations of infringement and seeking a declaratory judgment that the patents in suit were invalid and not infringed.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

     In evaluating all forward-looking statements, readers should specifically consider risk factors that may cause actual results to vary from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Various risk factors associated with our business are included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012, as filed with the Commission on May 30, 2012, and available at www.sec.gov. Other than as set forth below, there have been no material changes to those risk factors previously disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012.

- 17 -



We depend on a limited number of customers and distributors for a substantial portion of our sales, and the loss of, or a significant reduction in orders from, any key customer or distributor could significantly reduce our sales.

     While we generate sales from a broad base of customers worldwide, the loss of any of our key customers, or a significant reduction in sales to any one of them, would significantly reduce our sales and adversely affect our business. For the first three months of fiscal years 2013 and 2012, our ten largest end customers represented approximately 72 percent and 68 percent of our sales, respectively. We had one end customer, Apple Inc. that purchased through multiple contract manufacturers and represented approximately 59 percent and 53 percent of the Company’s total sales for the first quarter of fiscal years 2013 and 2012, respectively.

     We had one distributor, Avnet Inc., which represented approximately 13 percent and 20 percent of our sales for the three month periods ending June 30, 2012 and June 25, 2011, respectively. No other end customer or distributor represented more than 10 percent of net sales for the three month periods ending June 30, 2012, or June 25, 2011.

     We may not be able to maintain or increase sales to certain of our key customers for a variety of reasons, including the following:

  • most of our customers can stop incorporating our products into their own products with limited notice to us and suffer little or no penalty;
     
  • our agreements with our customers typically do not require them to purchase a minimum quantity of our products;
     
  • many of our customers have pre-existing or concurrent relationships with our current or potential competitors that may affect the customers’ decisions to purchase our products;
     
  • our customers face intense competition from other manufacturers that do not use our products; and
     
  • our customers regularly evaluate alternative sources of supply in order to diversify their supplier base, which increases their negotiating leverage with us and their ability to obtain components from alternative sources.

     These relationships often require us to develop new products that may involve significant technological challenges. Our customers frequently place considerable pressure on us to meet their tight development schedules. Accordingly, we may have to devote a substantial amount of resources to strategic relationships, which could detract from or delay our completion of other important development projects or the development of next generation products and technologies. Delays in development could impair our relationships with strategic customers and negatively impact sales of the products under development.

We are subject to risks relating to product concentration

     We derive a substantial portion of our revenues from a limited number of products, and we expect these products to account for a large percentage of our revenues in the near term. Customer acceptance of these products is critical to our future success. Our business, operating results, financial condition and cash flows could therefore be adversely affected by:

  • A decline in demand for any of our more significant products;
     
  • Failure of our products to achieve continued market acceptance;
     
  • Competitive products;
     
  • New technological standards or changes to existing standards that we are unable to address with our products;
     
  • A failure to release new products or enhanced versions of our existing products on a timely basis; and
     
  • The failure of our new products to achieve market acceptance.

- 18 -



In general, our customers may cancel or reschedule orders on short notice without incurring significant penalties; therefore, our sales and operating results in any quarter are difficult to forecast.

     In general, we rely on customers issuing purchase orders to buy our products rather than long-term supply contracts. Customers may cancel or reschedule orders on short notice without incurring significant penalties. Therefore, cancellations, reductions, or delays of orders from any significant customer, could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, and results of operations.

Our sales could be materially impacted by the failure of other component suppliers to deliver required parts needed in the final assembly of our customers’ end products.

     The products we supply our customers are typically a portion of the many components provided from multiple suppliers in order to complete the final assembly of an end product. If one or more of these other component suppliers are unable to deliver their required component(s) in order for the final product to be assembled, our customers may delay, or ultimately cancel, their orders from us.

Most of our current manufacturers, assemblers, test service providers, distributors and customers are concentrated in the same geographic region, which increases the risk that a natural disaster, epidemic, labor strike, war or political unrest could disrupt our operations or sales

     A significant percentage of our products are manufactured in facilities located in Taiwan, and most of our other foundry, assembly and test subcontractors are located in the Pacific Rim region. In addition, many of our customers are located in the Pacific Rim region. The risk of earthquakes in Taiwan and the Pacific Rim region is significant due to the proximity of major earthquake fault lines in the area. Earthquakes, tsunamis, fire, flooding, lack of water or other natural disasters, an epidemic, political unrest, war, labor strikes or work stoppages in countries where our semiconductor manufacturers, assemblers and test subcontractors are located, likely would result in the disruption of our foundry, assembly or test capacity. If we experience manufacturing problems at a particular location, or a supplier is unable to continue operating due to financial difficulties, natural disasters, or other reasons, we would be required to transfer manufacturing to a backup supplier. Converting or transferring manufacturing from a primary supplier to a backup facility could be expensive and time consuming. There can be no assurance that alternate capacity could be obtained on favorable terms, if at all. As a result, delays in our production or shipping by the parties to whom we outsource these functions could reduce our sales, damage our customer relationships, and damage our reputation in the marketplace, any of which could harm our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
