Analog Devices, Inc., a leading global semiconductor company, announced financial results for its second quarter of fiscal 2021, which ended May 1, 2021.
“ADI delivered record quarterly results that exceeded the high end of our outlook, reflecting the insatiable demand for our products and disciplined operational execution. Revenue increased 26% and gross and operating margins continued to expand, leading to earnings growth of 43%,” said Vincent Roche, President and CEO. “The economic recovery has materialized faster and stronger than initially anticipated, increasing pressure across supply chains globally. Our decision to strategically invest in additional capacity ahead of this demand inflection has enabled us to move with speed and agility to better serve our customers. These investments combined with continued momentum in bookings give us confidence that our second half will be stronger than the first half.”
Roche added, “Semiconductors are the bedrock of the modern digital economy and their importance to accelerating digitalization across all industries has never been more apparent. Our cadre of talented employees continues to push the edge of what is possible and deliver maximum customer impact. I am more optimistic than ever about ADI’s position in this reordered world as we create long-term value for all stakeholders.”
