- Good momentum in China smartphone market with sub-PMIC ASSP through platform integration with MediaTek

Commenting on the results Dialog Chief Executive, Dr Jalal Bagherli, said:

"‎We have made encouraging progress at the start of 2016 in the context of the expected softening of the smartphone market, achieving revenue performance at the top end of our guidance range. I am particularly pleased with Power Conversion's strong progress, where we continue to build on our leadership position in the smartphone fast charging market.

Underpinning our mid-term organic growth opportunity, we have an increasing number of custom-designed (ASIC) opportunities for our core technologies with a variety of Tier 1 customers. In support of these opportunities, we are making focused investments in research and development and are expanding our technology portfolio for emerging high volume product areas. These investments will strengthen our competitive position, broaden our customer base and underpin our expectation of return to revenue growth in 2017 and beyond."

Outlook

Based on our current visibility, we anticipate revenue for Q2 2016 to improve sequentially from Q1 2016 and to be in the range of $240 to $260 million. On the basis of this revenue guidance, gross margin in Q2 2016 will be flat to marginally above Q1 2016.

In line with historic seasonality, we expect revenue performance for the full year to be strongly weighted towards the second half of the year. However, as a result of the continuing softness in smartphone market demand, we now anticipate revenue for the full year 2016 to decline high single digit percentage year-on-year. We expect growth momentum in our Connectivity and Power Conversion products to remain strong through 2016.

In line with the revenue performance, we expect underlying gross margin percentage for the full year to be slightly below the level achieved in 2015. The effect of the lower anticipated revenue in FY 2016 will be partially offset by rigorous control of operating expenses in the period.
