Power integration misses sales target, less guidance on smartphone weaknesses



1659673846 large

chip maker power integration (POWI) beat Wall Street’s earnings target for the second quarter late Thursday but missed out on a sale. It also provided disappointing third-quarter guidance, citing weak Chinese smartphone sales. POWI shares fell in extended trading.


The San Jose, California-based company earned $1.03 per share in adjusted June quarter sales of $184 million. Analysts polled by FactSet expected earnings per share of 98 cents on sales of $190.2 million. On a year-over-year basis, Power Integration’s earnings increased 24%, while sales grew 2%.

For the current quarter, Power Integrations forecast revenue of $165 million. But analysts were seeking $198.5 million in third-quarter sales. In the same quarter last year, Power Integrations generated $176.8 million in revenue.

“Our second quarter revenue and third quarter outlook reflect a moderation in Chinese smartphone customers as well as broader macroeconomic headwinds,” Chief Executive Balu Balakrishnan said in a news release.

“Despite weak near-term demand outlook, we continue to make great progress on long-term growth initiatives such as automotive, motor drives, and our products incorporating energy-efficient, proprietary GaN (gallium nitride),” he added. Let’s expand our portfolio of technology.”

POWI Stock Falls After Report

In today’s trading hours on the stock market, POWI stock fell 1.4% to 84. During the regular session on Thursday, POWI stock closed 1.3% higher at 85.17.
