NORWOOD, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 17, 2016 — Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications today announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2016, which ended January 30, 2016.
“Despite an uneven macroeconomic backdrop and significant weakness in the consumer market, our business to business (B2B) markets of industrial, automotive, and communications infrastructure were resilient in the first quarter,” said Vincent Roche, President and CEO. “In addition, we returned $257 million, or 131% of free cash flow, to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases.”
“With order flows in the B2B markets trending largely in-line with seasonal patterns, we are planning for combined revenue in these markets to grow at a mid-to-high single digit rate sequentially in the second quarter, offsetting expected weakness in the portable consumer market. In total, we expect revenue in the second quarter to be in the range of -2% to +4% sequentially.”
