For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, we now forecast revenue of $ 2.30 billion, +/- $ 70 million. ADI expects Maxim to contribute around $ 520 million in revenue to this updated outlook.

We expect reported EPS of $ 1.25 +/- $ 0.09 and Adjusted EPS of $ 1.69 +/- $ 0.09. This outlook assumes a diluted number of shares of approximately 487 million.
In the first full quarter after the combination, ADI expects its weighted average number of diluted shares to be approximately 530 million.
