For the fourth quarter (ended August 29, 2013), Micron Technology, Inc. had net income of USD 1.71 billion on net sales of USD 2.8 billion.
The results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 compare to net income of USD43 million on net sales of USD2.3 billion for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, and a net loss of USD 243 million on net sales of USD2.0 billion for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.

For the 2013 fiscal year, the company had net income of USD 1.19 billion on net sales of USD9.1 billion. Cash flows from operations were USD1.8 billion for fiscal 2013. The results for fiscal 2013 compare to a net loss of USD 1.03 billion on net sales of USD8.2 billion for the 2012 fiscal year.

On July 31, 2013, the company completed its acquisition of Elpida Memory, Inc. and Rexchip Electronics Corporation. The company's results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 include USD 1,484 million, in purchase accounting gains relating to the acquisition and the results of operations of Elpida for the month of August.

"Micron is executing well on multiple fronts with the successful integration of Elpida and ongoing steady development of advanced memory solutions, including our hybrid memory cube that began sampling with key customers this quarter and our second generation family of PCIe enterprise SSD's which recently qualified at a major OEM," said Micron CEO Mark Durcan. "Our product portfolio and systems solutions position us well to compete in the current favorable market environment."

Revenues from sales of DRAM products in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 were 50 percent higher compared to the third quarter due to a 42 percent increase in sales volume and a 5 percent increase in average selling prices. Revenues from sales of NAND Flash products were 5 percent higher in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the third quarter primarily due to a 17 percent increase in sales volume offset by an 11 percent decrease in average selling prices.

The company's consolidated gross margin improved to 25 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to 24 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. Gross margins for DRAM benefitted from the improved average selling prices. Gross margins for NAND Flash products were unchanged as an 11 percent improvement in manufacturing costs was offset by the decrease in average selling prices.

Cash flows from operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 were USD 717 million, while investments in capital expenditures were USD 332 million. The company ended the fourth fiscal quarter with cash and investments of USD 4.2 billion, which includes USD 556 million, reflected as current restricted cash, set aside for payment of the first Elpida creditor installment.
