Skyworks cuts December-quarter revenue and earnings guidance

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has reduced its revenue guidance for fiscal first-quarter 2019 (ended 28 December 2018) from $1bn-1.02bn (given on 8 November) to about $970m (down on $1.052bn a year previously). The firm has also reduced its guidance for non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from $1.91 to $1.81-1.84 (down on $2.00 a year previously).

“First fiscal quarter results were impacted by unit weakness across our largest smartphone customers,” says president & CEO Liam K. Griffin.

This follows similar December-quarter guidance cuts from rival Qorvo in November, as well as Lumentum and IQE (also in the Apple iPhone supply chain), and specifically follows Apple issuing a profit warning in early January.

“Despite these near-term challenges, our broad markets business tracked in-line with our prior outlook,” he adds. “In addition, cash flow generation continued to be strong, allowing us to return cash to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends.”
