The Company reported revenue of $31.0 million, up from $30.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. Non-GAAP net income of $4.0 million increased 42% from $2.9 million in the prior quarter and improved $6.0 million from a loss of $1.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012. Non-GAAP gross margin was 49.0%, a 223 basis points improvement from the prior quarter, and up 60 basis points compared to the same quarter a year ago. Non-GAAP net income per fully-diluted share was $0.09, up from $0.06 in the prior quarter, and a $0.13 improvement from a non-GAAP net loss of $0.04 in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012.
On a GAAP basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $1.5 million, up from $0.3 million in the prior quarter, and a $6.3 million improvement from a loss of $4.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012. GAAP gross margin increased to 45.8%.

"Our third fiscal quarter results demonstrate continued profitable growth in a difficult market environment. On a non-GAAP basis we achieved 11% operating profit and 13% net profit. While overall revenue growth was modest, our growth in networking and storage for big data analytics remains robust. This growth, coupled with gross margin expansion and a continued focus on prudent spending, drove a 60% sequential increase in non-GAAP operating income. Free cash flow of $3.6 million for the quarter represents improvements of $1.8 million and $6.8 million as compared to the prior quarter and third quarter of 2012 respectively," commented company President and CEO Louis DiNardo.
For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 ending March 31, 2013, the Company expects revenue in the range of $31.0 million to $32.0 million.

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles
The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, the Company supplements reported GAAP financials with non-GAAP measures which are included in related press releases and reports furnished to the SEC, copies of which are available at the Company's website: http://www.exar.com or the SEC's website at: http://www.sec.gov. In this press release and in related comments by management, we are disclosing non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income or loss, non-GAAP net income or loss, and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income or loss per share, which are adjusted to exclude from our GAAP results all stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, restructuring charges and exit costs, provision for dispute resolution, certain income tax credits, and related income tax effects on certain excluded items. We are also disclosing the non-GAAP measure of free cash flow, which is derived from our net cash provided (used) by operations, less purchases of fixed assets and IP, plus proceeds from the sale of IP. These non-GAAP measures are presented in part to enhance the understanding of the Company's historical financial performance and comparability between reporting periods. The Company believes the non-GAAP presentation, when shown in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures, provide relevant and useful information to analysts, investors, management and other interested parties. For its internal purposes, the Company uses the foregoing non-GAAP measures to evaluate performance across reporting periods, determine certain employee benefits as well as plan for and forecast the Company's future periods. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. The Company believes that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. These measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP numbers to the most comparable GAAP numbers is provided in the tables included with this press release.
