Skyworks Exceeds Q1 FY13 Revenue And EPS Guidance

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today reported first fiscal quarter 2013 results for the period ending December 28, 2012. Revenue for the quarter was $453.7 million, up 15 percent when compared to $393.7 million in the first fiscal quarter of 2012 and exceeding the Company’s guidance of $450 million.

On a non-GAAP basis, operating income for the first fiscal quarter of 2013 was $114.8 million, up from $105.2 million in the comparable prior year period. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the first fiscal quarter was $0.55, a penny better than guidance. On a GAAP basis, operating income for the first fiscal quarter of 2013 was $86.6 million and diluted earnings per share was $0.34.

“As our results and guidance reflect, Skyworks is enabling anytime, anywhere communications across a diverse set of end markets and applications,” said David J. Aldrich, president and chief executive officer of Skyworks. “We’re capitalizing on growing consumer and enterprise demand for ubiquitous connectivity spanning all modes of wireline and wireless communications. In fact, our analog semiconductor solutions are increasingly at the heart of everything from smartphones to smart appliances to home security systems to satellites to medical sensors to hybrid vehicles.
