"We ended our fiscal year 2019 strongly with March quarter revenue, gross margin and earnings per share well above our initial expectations. We forecast an even stronger start to fiscal year 2020 and currently project growth in revenue, earnings and free cash flow for full-year fiscal 2020," said CFO Mark Murphy.
The company also announced that on May 6 it completed its acquisition of Active-Semi International as it looks to enter the $3 billion power management market.
"We're pleased to welcome the Active-Semi team to Qorvo, and we're excited to expand our product offerings and extend our reach into new high-growth power management markets," CEO Bob Bruggeworth said.
