Commenting on the results, Dr. Keh-Shew Lu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Diodes Incorporated, stated, “Despite the slowdown in the general market, we were able to achieve five percent sequential growth and meet our expectations due to past design wins and new product initiatives that drove further market share gains. This quarter represents our third consecutive quarter of growth as we continued to increase sales for our products used in smartphones and tablets, while also benefiting from a rebound in LED TVs and a strong quarter in automotive.
