Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On January 25, 2007, Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (Cypress or the Company) issued a press release announcing its results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2006. The press release is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.
Use of Adjusted-GAAP Financial Information:
To supplement the consolidated financial results prepared under GAAP, Cypress uses adjusted-GAAP financial measures which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to exclude stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles and other acquisition-related charges, and other special charges and credits. Management does not consider these charges part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company as they result from corporate transactions outside the ordinary course of business. Management uses these adjusted-GAAP measures internally for strategic decision making, forecasting future results and evaluating the Companys current performance. Most analysts covering Cypress use the adjusted-GAAP measures as well. Given managements use of these adjusted-GAAP measures, Cypress believes these measures are important to investors understanding of the Companys disclosures regarding current and future operating results. Management also believes these adjusted-GAAP measures enable investors to better assess changes in Cypress core business across different time periods. These adjusted-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP and may be different from adjusted-GAAP measures used by other companies.
Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of the adjusted-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1 hereto, shall not be deemed to be filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liability of that section. The information contained herein and in the accompanying Exhibit 99.1 shall not be incorporated by reference into any filing made by Cypress with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, whether made before or after the date hereof, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
