Gross margin for the first quarter was 57.8%, compared with gross margin of 56.4% in the same quarter last year, and 58.8% in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Operating margin was 10.5% during the first quarter. Net income for the first quarter of 2011 decreased to $14.1 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared with net income of $27.7 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the same quarter last year, and net income of $26.1 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Non-GAAP Results of Operations

Non-GAAP operating income during the first quarter of 2011 was $30.4 million, or 15.3% of revenue. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2011 was $22.9 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. Intersil's non-GAAP operating income and net income excludes the effects of intangible amortization, acquisition-related charges, certain tax adjustments and one-time restructuring costs, but includes equity-based compensation.

"Business conditions improved during the first quarter, driven by 23% sequential growth in our computing end market," said Dave Bell, Intersil's President and Chief Executive Officer. "It's also significant that we remained close to our target gross margin during a quarter with a substantially higher computing product mix."

At the end of the first quarter, Intersil's cash and cash equivalents totaled $390.3 million. Free cash flow was $29.2 million during the first quarter. Intersil reduced its total debt by $20.3 million to $278.2 million during the first quarter of 2011.

Intersil's Board of Directors has authorized the payment of a quarterly dividend of $0.12 per share of common stock. The payment of this dividend will be made on May 27, 2011 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 17, 2011.

Second Quarter 2011 Outlook

-- Revenues are expected to be between $204 million and $212 million
   (+3% to +7% sequentially)
-- Research and development expenses are expected to be approximately
   $49 million
-- Selling, general and administrative expenses are expected to be
   approximately $36 million
-- Amortization of intangibles is expected to be approximately $6.7 million
-- GAAP earnings per diluted share is expected to be between $0.15
   and $0.18
-- Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share (excluding amortization of
   intangibles) is expected to be between $0.19 and $0.22

"The crisis in Japan has had little impact on our upstream supply chain, and we are utilizing our capacity to replace some competing products in short supply. It is difficult to accurately predict the downstream supply chain impact from other component shortages; however, we are forecasting slightly lower growth during the second quarter to compensate for this uncertainty," said Bell.

"During the second quarter, we anticipate growth in all of our end markets, with the strongest growth in industrial. We expect that revenue growth, combined with operating expense controls, will deliver stronger operating profit as we make progress towards our long-range financial targets," continued Bell.
