Cypress Semiconductor Corporation Research Report

On September 24, 2013, Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (Cypress) provided an
update on its Q3 2013 guidance, as well as preliminary guidance on Q4 2013
business trends. According to the Company, it has lowered its expected
preliminary Q3 2013 consolidated revenue guidance, to range between $184
million and $187 million, and has also lowered the range of its non-GAAP fully
diluted earnings per share to $0.10 per share and $0.12 per share. On the
other hand, Cypress anticipates its Q4 2013 revenue to be down 9% to 11% QoQ.
Brad Buss, Executive Vice President and CFO of Cypress said, "We are very
disappointed to have to revise our prior guidance. However, the revenue
weakness is mostly specific to certain end customer challenges in the mobile
handset markets and is not a broad-based customer weakness. As revenue growth
resumes, and with continued proactive cost management, we expect that we will
be in a position to significantly increase the financial leverage in our
operating model." The Full Research Report on Cypress Semiconductor
