Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On May 5, 2016, Dr. Keh-Shew Lu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Diodes Incorporated, (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, participated in a conference call to discuss the Company’s first quarter 2016 financial results. A recording of the conference call has been posted on the Company’s website at www.diodes.com, and copy of a transcript of the conference call is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.

In the 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 the Company’s operating results in a manner that enables investors to more thoroughly evaluate its current performance as compared to past performance. The Company also believes these non-GAAP measures provide investors with a more informed baseline for modeling the Company’s future financial performance. Management uses these non-GAAP measures for the same purpose. The Company believes that investors should have access to the same set of tools that management uses in analyzing 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 and may differ from similar measures used by other companies. For a description, and reconciliation with GAAP, of these non-GAAP measures see the Company’s press release dated May 5, 2016 announcing the Company’s first quarter 2016 financial results, a copy of which was furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5, 2016.

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

The transcript of the earnings conference call furnished as Exhibit 99.1 also provides an update on the Company’s business outlook, that is intended to be within the safe harbor provided by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (the “Act”) as comprising forward looking statements within the meaning of the Act.

Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.

(d) Exhibits.
