"Calendar 2013 was an extraordinary year for Lam Research, highlighted by strong operating and financial performance. Our December quarter results closed the year with record shipments, record revenues and earnings that exceeded our expectations," stated Martin Anstice, Lam Research's president and chief executive officer. "Our outlook for continued healthy levels of wafer fab equipment spending in 2014 reflects our customers' planned investments in key technology inflections tempered by their focus on maintaining balanced supply and demand. Against this industry back drop, we are further strengthening our emphasis on customer trust and improving competitiveness to reinforce the opportunities for future growth and enhanced financial performance of Lam."

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Results
Cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments, and restricted cash and investment balances increased to $2.7 billion at the end of the December 2013 quarter compared to $2.6 billion at the end of the September 2013 quarter. This increase was primarily the result of approximately $129 million in cash flows from operating activities during the December 2013 quarter, partially offset by $48 million of stock repurchases.

Deferred revenue and deferred profit balances at the end of the December 2013 quarter increased to $405.0 million and $224.4 million, respectively, as compared to $334.0 million and $188.4 million, respectively, at the end of the September 2013 quarter. Lam's deferred revenue balance does not include shipments to Japanese customers, to whom title does not transfer until customer acceptance. Shipments to Japanese customers are classified as inventory at cost until the time of acceptance. The anticipated future revenue from shipments to Japanese customers was approximately $53.5 million as of December 29, 2013.

The Company's non-GAAP results for both the December 2013 and September 2013 quarters exclude costs associated with the fair-value impact of acquisition-related inventory, amortization related to intangible assets acquired in the Novellus transaction, certain integration-related costs, rationalization of certain product configurations, the impairment of a long-lived asset, the amortization of convertible note discounts, and the tax benefit on successful resolution of certain tax matters. Additionally, the December 2013 quarter non-GAAP results exclude the gain on sale of an investment and the September 2013 quarter non-GAAP results excluded certain restructuring charges and the tax expense associated with legal-entity integration.
