GAAP net income for the first quarter increased 255% year-over-year to $21.0 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $5.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2009. On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 increased 107% year-over-year to $27.4 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 of $13.2 million or $0.15 per diluted share.

“We got off to a very good start in Q1, as both revenue and profits exceeded our targets,” stated Chuck Swoboda, Cree Chairman and CEO. “We are benefitting from continued LED lighting adoption and high factory utilization and are well positioned for solid growth in Q2. As a result of the recent equity offering, we have the balance sheet to invest in the growth of our business as we look to continue to lead the LED lighting revolution.”
