Business Outlook

Including $5 million in patent sale revenue, the company expects revenue in the second quarter to be in the range of $168 million to $173 million. Second quarter diluted earnings per share are expected to be between $0.23 and $0.29 on a GAAP basis, and between $0.61 and $0.67 on a non-GAAP basis, which reflects an expected $0.09 after-tax benefit from the patent sale transaction.

The launch of our multiprotocol Wireless Gecko portfolio enables game-changing functionality for our customers and will drive our growth and success in the broad IoT market.”
