Commenting on the results, Dr. Keh-Shew Lu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Diodes Incorporated, stated, “I am pleased to report 10 percent sequential revenue growth driven by improved demand across all of our geographies and end markets as we continued to gain market share. The quarter benefited from the ramping of new projects for our products used in smartphones and tablets, where Diodes is very well positioned. Our growth is particularly noteworthy considering our stronger than seasonal results last quarter, which was the low point in the demand cycle. Margins also improved in the quarter as we began to slowly shift to higher margin products, while also benefiting from new product initiatives and manufacturing efficiency improvements.
