Hittite’s Q3 revenue and profit exceed guidance

For third-quarter 2013, Hittite Microwave Corp of Chelmsford, MA, USA (which designs and supplies analog, digital and mixed-signal RF, microwave and millimeter-wave ICs, modules and subsystems as well as instrumentation) has reported revenue of $68.7m (slightly above the forecasted $66.5-68.5m), up slightly on $68.6m last quarter and up 2.3% on $67.2m a year ago.

Of total revenue, 43.4% ($29.8m) came from customers in the USA (versus 44%, or $30.2m, last quarter) and 56.6% ($38.9m) came from customers outside the USA (versus 56%, or ($38.4m, last quarter).

Gross margin has fallen further, from 73.6% a year ago and 72.4% last quarter to 71.2%. Nevertheless, operating income has risen from $27.6m (41% of revenue) a year ago and $27.5m (40.1% of revenue) last quarter to $28m (40.7% of revenue).
