7/19/2002 - IDT (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; Nasdaq: IDTI), a leading communications IC company, today announced results for the quarter ended June 30, 2002, the first quarter of fiscal 2003. Revenues for the first quarter were $91.8 million, an increase of 6 percent compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2002 and a decrease of 20.8 percent from the quarter ended July 1, 2001. On a pro-forma basis, the net loss for the first fiscal quarter was $3.5 million ($0.03 per diluted share), compared to a net loss of $6.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2002 and net income of $0.1 million ($0.00 per diluted share) for the quarter one year ago.

Including certain costs, charges and gains in accordance with GAAP, the Company lost $7.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2003 ($0.07 per diluted share) compared to a loss of $20.0 million in the fourth quarter ($0.19 per diluted share).

During the first quarter of fiscal 2003, IDT completed the transfer of manufacturing volumes from its Salinas, Calif. wafer fab to Hillsboro, Ore. The Company expects the completion of this transfer will contribute to net savings of approximately $5 million in manufacturing expenses per quarter beginning in the second quarter of fiscal 2003 and should enhance the Company's opportunity for profitability and cash flow in the second half of calendar 2002 and thereafter.

"Our business continued to grow during the first fiscal quarter, led by sales of new products including IP co-processors and integrated communications processors for enterprise networking applications," said Jerry Taylor, IDT's chief executive officer. "As we enter the summer quarter, growth rates in the markets we serve continue to be uncertain, but we remain optimistic that our key customers will resume their growth as the global economy recovers, resulting in increased demand for IDT's products."

Q1FY03 Highlights:
"This quarter represented another strong growth quarter for IP co-processors," said Greg Lang, IDT's president. "IDT is building momentum in product execution and design-win activity. We began general sampling of our 128Kx72-entry (9-Mbit) device, the industry's widest and fastest IP co-processor currently available. We shipped this product for revenue during fiscal Q1, making IDT the first company to ship a 9-Mbit device at 0.13-micron technology. This is an important milestone in the development of our commercial portfolio of co-processor products as we continue our leadership in this emerging market."

Additional Highlights:
IDT's RC32332 integrated communications processor earned another design win in 3Com Corporation's recently announced new stackable, layer-2 managed 10/100 Ethernet switches. IDT processors now power managed layer-2 switches from the top three system vendors - Cisco, 3Com, and HP - among others.

IDT expanded its industry-leading multi-port product portfolio with speed enhancements to its family of bank-switchable dual-ports. With speeds to 200 MHz and up to 9 Mbits of data storage, these dual-ports provide the highest performance and density on the market.

IDT introduced a family of WAN PLL products with single or dual reference clocks that provide timing and synchronization signals to interface circuits in T1/E1 applications. IDT's WAN PLLs utilize industry-compliant clock generators and are used for TDM clock and framing control in customer premises equipment, access, or carrier-equipment systems that have WAN links and/or DSP resources.

IDT introduced the industry's first family of zero delay buffers capable of user-selectable 2.5- and 3.3-volt outputs, allowing designers increased flexibility to integrate multiple voltage inputs on a single board.

IDT partnered with MontaVista™ Software to bring the power of MontaVista's embedded Linux® Professional Edition to IDT's family of integrated communications processors. MontaVista's Linux products strengthen IDT's growing leadership in a variety of communications applications.
