Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On February 9, 2011, Diodes Incorporated (the Company) issued a press release announcing its fiscal and fourth quarter 2010 financial results. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1.
On February 9, 2011, the Company hosted a conference call to discuss its fiscal and fourth quarter 2010 financial results. A recording of the conference call has been posted on its website at www.diodes.com. A copy of the script is attached as Exhibit 99.2.
During the conference call on February 9, 2011, Dr. Keh-Shew Lu, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, as well as Richard D. White, Chief Financial Officer, Mark King, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing and Laura Mehrl, Director of Investor Relations made additional comments during a question and answer session. A copy of the transcript is attached as Exhibit 99.3.
In the press release and earnings conference call, the Company utilizes financial measures and terms not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) in order to provide investors with an alternative method for assessing our operating results in a manner that enables investors to more thoroughly evaluate our current performance as compared to past performance. We also believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors with a more informed baseline for modeling the Companys future financial performance. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures for the same purpose. We believe that our investors should have access to, and that we are obligated to provide, the same set of tools that we use in analyzing our results. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. See Exhibit 99.1, for a description of the non-GAAP measures used.
Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
The disclosure set forth above under Item 1.01 is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
