TriQuint Announces Third Quarter 2010 Results

HILLSBORO, Ore., Oct 27, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc.
(TQNT), a leading RF front-end product and foundry services provider, announces
its financial results for the quarter ended October 2, 2010, including the
following highlights:

Revenue was $237.0 million, up 14% from Q2'10 and 37% from Q3'09 Mobile Devices
quarterly revenue grew 28% from Q2'10 and 37% from Q3'09 Net Income was $110.9
million or $0.68 per diluted share which includes a tax benefit of $72.1 million
Non-GAAP Net Income was $44.2 million or $0.27 per diluted share Named to
Forbes.com "Most Trustworthy Companies" list Released TQP15 Foundry process for
mmWave applications: VSAT, satellite and point to point radios Announced
integration strategy for Base Station products - four levels of integration
Launched heat spreading capability for high power die sales - Die on Tab Awarded
a $17.5 million Title III gallium nitride manufacturing development contract by
the US Air Force Research Laboratory

Commenting on the results for the quarter ended October 2, 2010, Ralph Quinsey,
President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "I am very pleased with our
results this quarter and am excited about our long term opportunities. We've
turned in record third quarter revenue and, not including favorable non cash tax
effects, generated more non-GAAP net income in Q3 than we did in either of the
preceding 2 years. Our strategy of RF integration, multi-market innovation, and
growth for scale has been effective. Looking forward I expect that the RF market
will remain healthy and TriQuint will benefit from a strong product roadmap built
on industry leading technology platforms."

Summary Financial Results for the Quarter Ended October 2, 2010:

Revenue for the third quarter of 2010 was $237.0 million, up 37% from the third
quarter of 2009 and 14% sequentially. Networks continued to enjoy a strong
rebound from the lows of 2009, with revenue growing 61% compared to the third
quarter of 2009. Mobile Devices showed robust growth, with revenue increasing 28%
sequentially and 37% compared to the third quarter of 2009.

Net income for the third quarter of 2010 was $110.9 million, or $0.68 per diluted
share. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter was $44.2 million, or $0.27 per
diluted share. The company recognized a tax benefit of $72.1 million during the
third quarter primarily due to the reversal of a valuation allowance previously
placed on our net deferred tax assets which are mostly net operating loss
carryforwards (NOLs). This reversal is a non-cash event that indicates
strengthened conviction in the company's ability to generate sufficient profits
to fully utilize these NOLs. Please see the discussion of non-GAAP financial
measures below and the attached supplemental schedule for a reconciliation of
GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2010 was 41.3%, up from 33.8% in the third
quarter of 2009. On a non-GAAP basis, gross margin was 42.3%, up from 35.0% in
the third quarter of 2009.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2010 were $59.1 million, or 24.9% of
revenue, up from $47.7 million in the third quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP operating
expenses for the quarter were $56.0 million or 23.6% of revenue.

Outlook:

The company believes fourth quarter revenue will be between $245 million and $255
million. At the midpoint, this implies revenue growth in 2010 of 33% over the
prior year. Looking to 2011, the company believes continued robust growth in
demand should lead to revenue growth of about 20%. For the fourth quarter of
2010, the company expects that strong growth in the mobile devices market will
lead to a non-GAAP gross margin between 41% and 42%. Non-GAAP operating expenses
are expected to grow to about $59 million, or 24% of revenue. Fourth quarter net
income is expected to be between $0.26 and $0.28 per share on a non-GAAP basis.
The company is 91% booked to the midpoint of revenue guidance.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release provides financial measures for net income, diluted earnings
per share, gross profit, operating expenses, and operating income that exclude
equity compensation expense, non-cash tax expense, certain charges associated
with acquisitions, and other specifically identified non-routine items, and are
therefore not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally
accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). The non-cash tax expense includes certain
deferred tax charges and benefits that do not result in a tax payment or tax
refund. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide
meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance that enhances
management's and investors' ability to evaluate TriQuint's operating results.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be used in isolation and
should not be considered a substitute for any other performance measure
determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors are
cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP
financial measures as an analytical tool, including that other companies may
calculate similar non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, limiting
their usefulness as a comparative tool. The company compensates for these
limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amount excluded
from the non-GAAP financial measures. The company further compensates for the
limitations of our use of non-GAAP financial measures by presenting comparable
GAAP measures more prominently. Investors and potential investors are encouraged
to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures contained within this
press release with our GAAP net income and net income per share. For more
information, see the consolidated operating statements and reconciliation of
non-GAAP measurements contained in this press release.

TriQuint GaN Leadership Leads to New $17.5M Title III Manufacturing Development
Contract

New 100mm Gallium Nitride Award Focuses on Maximized Yield, Lower Cost in High
Power, High Frequency Device Manufacturing

HILLSBORO, Ore. & RICHARDSON, Texas, Nov 30, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- TriQuint
Semiconductor (TQNT), a leading RF products manufacturer and foundry services
provider, today announced that it has been awarded a Defense Production Act Title
III gallium nitride (GaN) manufacturing development contract by the US Air Force
Research Laboratory (AFRL). The overall goal of the contract is to increase
yield, lower costs and improve time-to-market cycles for defense and commercial
GaN integrated circuits. The contract was awarded based on TriQuint's success and
experience developing new gallium nitride technologies and products.

TriQuint's new GaN contract is divided into three phases with goals and
assessment criteria at each milestone. The primary first phase goal is to make a
baseline assessment of manufacturing readiness, according to TriQuint Vice
President Tom Cordner. In the second program phase, TriQuint will work to improve
and refine the production process to reach a manufacturing readiness level (MRL)
of 8 in developing its advanced MMICs. In the final phase, which is expected to
conclude in 2013, the program will demonstrate MMIC fabrication that meets full
performance, cost and capacity goals. TriQuint is the prime contractor and all
the work is to be performed at its Richardson, Texas facility.

TriQuint has been a leader in GaN research and product development for both
defense and civilian applications since 1999. In addition to its military design
and manufacturing work, TriQuint has released new GaN amplifiers for wireless
communications and a wide range of other applications over the last three years.
TriQuint was the first to offer high frequency, high power commercial GaN foundry
services (0.25m GaN on SiC) in 2008.

"TriQuint is very excited to participate in this program to accelerate gallium
nitride manufacturing technology. This program will take the technology from the
early stages of production to a mature manufacturing process enabling
next-generation systems," Cordner remarked. "We have successfully transferred
process technologies into manufacturing at TriQuint for more than 25 years and we
look forward to these new challenges and opportunities."

Gallium nitride is a key process technology that is leading advanced
semiconductor amplifier design thanks to inherent advantages including high
voltage operation, greater power density (more power per square millimeter) and
efficiency. The on-going development of GaN-based devices is leading to new
smaller, more efficient amplifiers that reduce system size, weight and power
consumption.

TriQuint's expertise in gallium nitride (GaN), gallium arsenide (GaAs) /
high-voltage GaAs pHEMT, surface acoustic and bulk acoustic wave (SAW / BAW),
low-cost packaged devices and monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs)
has made it a leading supplier of RF system components to Boeing Company,
Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and other major defense
contractors. TriQuint supplies RF innovation for consumer retail products
including mobile devices, wireless LAN, triple-play CATV systems, optical network
and wireless infrastructure applications.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release provides financial measures for non-GAAP net income, diluted
earnings per share, gross profit, operating expenses and operating income that
exclude equity compensation expense, non-cash tax (benefit) expense, certain
charges associated with acquisitions, and other specifically identified
non-routine items, and are therefore not calculated in accordance with accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). The non-cash tax
(benefit) expense includes certain deferred tax charges and benefits that do not
result in a tax payment or tax refund. Management believes that these non-GAAP
financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our
performance that enhances management's and investors' ability to evaluate
TriQuint's operating results.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be used in isolation and
should not be considered a substitute for any other performance measure
determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors are
cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP
financial measures as an analytical tool, including that other companies may
calculate similar non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, limiting
their usefulness as a comparative tool. The company compensates for these
limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amount excluded
from the non-GAAP financial measures. The company further compensates for the
limitations of our use of non-GAAP financial measures by presenting comparable
GAAP measures more prominently. Investors and potential investors are encouraged
to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures contained within this
press release with our GAAP net income and net income per share.

TriQuint's WLAN Solutions Power Smartphones Worldwide

TriQuint's WiFi Technology Found in Popular Smartphones using TI's WiLink(TM)
Solutions

HILLSBORO, Ore. & BARCELONA, Spain, Feb 13, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- TriQuint
Semiconductor, Inc. (TQNT), a leading RF solutions supplier and technology
innovator, announced its two power amplifiers (PA) for WLAN connectivity lead the
market,* since ramping to production last year. Both the single and dual-band PAs
are designed to augment the WiLink(TM) 6.0 solution and recently launched WiLink
7.0 solution from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI). The TQM679002A and
TQP6M9002 offer faster data exchange rates, extended battery life, and better
amplification of weak signals than competitive technologies.

Today's smartphones and tablets increasingly include both cellular and WLAN
connectivity options, offering users the choice of broadband connectivity between
cellular networks or WiFi networks. The integration of both technologies benefits
consumers and carriers by offloading cellular capacity onto local WiFi networks.
Given the additional bandwidth the 5GHz 802.11a frequency band offers, an
increasing number of tablets, smartphones, and other mobile internet devices
(MID's) are dual-band WiFi enabled.

TriQuint's integrated WLAN PAs are built with TriQuint's in-house E/D pHEMT and
Copper Bump (CuFlip(TM)) technologies and are found in smartphones such as the
Motorola Droid & Droid2, RIM Blackberry Torch, and Samsung 'Giorgio Armani'.

TI's WiLink 6.0 mobile platform is a complete hardware and software offering
comprising proven, carrier-quality mobile WLAN, Bluetooth(R) technology and FM
cores integrated into a single chip. The WiLink 6.0 single-chip solution delivers
low-battery consumption, small form-factor and low cost requirements to meet the
needs of handset and mobile device manufacturers worldwide.

"Our goal with the WiLink 6.0 and WiLink 7.0 platforms is to enable our customers
to build revolutionary designs and products with co-existing connectivity options
that meet the surface area and power requirements of mobile designs. TriQuint's
RF solutions for WLAN and Bluetooth technologies offer faster data rates and
better amplification of weak signals in the mobile device's often-cramped board
space. We are pleased to be working with TriQuint to offer our mutual customers
an easy-to-use mobile computing platform for the development of next generation
end-user experiences that support the truly connected lifestyle we envision at
TI," said Eran Sandhaus, Director of Marketing, Wireless Connectivity Solutions,
TI.

Tim Dunn, Vice President and General Manager of Mobile Devices at TriQuint, said
"WiFi connectivity is becoming a 'must-have' feature for today's smartphones and
tablets because it enables consumers the ability to leverage home networks and
WiFi hotspots when the 3G networks are at capacity. We are pleased to be working
closely with Texas Instruments to offer smartphone and tablet vendors an
exemplary solution and are investing in capacity to support this growing market
demand."

TriQuint offers the industry's largest in-house technology portfolio which
uniquely enables innovative RF architectures that align with major chipset
providers; this provides device manufacturers qualified, tested and certified
solutions. TriQuint will highlight these platform solutions at the
telecommunications industry's largest annual gathering, GSMA Mobile World
Congress, in Barcelona, Spain 14 - 17 February, 2011.

Technology Overview

Both the single band 2.4GHz TQM679002A and dual band 2.4GHz/5GHz TQP6M9002 are
fully integrated MMIC's incorporating power amplifier and detectors, pre-PA
filters, T/R switches, and WLAN Rx Balun. The 2.4GHz band SP3T switch seamlessly
selects between WLAN TX, RX, and Bluetooth paths. The TriQuint solutions offer
integration with both the WiLink(TM) 6.0 and WiLink(TM) 7.0 mobile platforms. The
single band TQM679002A comes in a 3.0x3.0x0.45 package and supports 802.11b/g/n +
BT. The dual band TQP6M9002 supports 802.11a/b/g/n + BT and is available in a

from research to completed devices, focusing on the people, processes and
products that drive the industry forward. TriQuint earned the R&D award for its
leadership driving a team to create highly-evolved, high power Gallium Nitride
devices operating in the 300-500 GHz range.

"The CS Industry Awards recognize the vision and contributions of compound
semiconductor companies across the industry. Recipients like TriQuint
Semiconductor are enabling global manufacturers to realize the potential of 3G
and 4G wireless technology," said Stephen Whitehurst, Chief Operating Officer, CS
Europe. "TriQuint has been a gallium nitride pioneer since 1999 and continues to
lead through its work in support of DARPA's 'NEXT' GaN* program that is setting
new performance benchmarks for advanced, high power microwave circuits. It's
therefore so appropriate that TriQuint would be one of our inaugural recipients."

Most Popular Semiconductor Brand -- Presented March 16, 2011 at the Conference on
Green Manufacturing in Shanghai, China, The China Electronic News (CEN) Award
nominees are compiled by the editors of the magazine and voted on by readers. For
the second consecutive year, TriQuint was named a top ten "Most Popular
Semiconductor Brand in China" in recognition of its sales revenue, product
performance and service, localization efforts in China as well as brand
recognition and influence.

China Electronics News published the list to recognize outstanding multinational
companies in the China semiconductor market. CEN's Vice President, Mr. Yun Zhu
Di, commented "TriQuint's CAGR from 2005 to 2010 was 70% and they achieved a new
revenue milestone of US$150 million. TriQuint is a deserving recipient of this
award. We look forward to seeing TriQuint's ongoing commitment and investment to
further develop the market and to their future achievements in China."

Company of the Year Finalist -- Announced March 14, 2011, The EE Times Annual
Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Awards celebrate the creators of technology who
demonstrate leadership and innovation in the global industry and shape the world
we live in. TriQuint is named a finalist in the "Company of the Year" category by
