Commenting on the results, Dr. Keh-Shew Lu, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our second quarter results reflect strong performance across our business, highlighted by the achievement of record revenue and gross profit dollars. The growth was driven by an approximately 7 percent sequential increase in Diodes’ core business, with a modest 1 percent increase in revenue from Pericom. Our industrial market revenue was higher in the quarter reflecting increased sales in both North America and Europe. Revenue from our automotive market also had another solid quarter of growth as this end market continues to outpace the average growth rate of the Company.
“In addition, we achieved a 140 basis point sequential improvement in non-GAAP gross margin, due primarily to increased utilization at our manufacturing facilities and improved product mix. We also continued to generate solid cash flow during the quarter, which enabled us to pay down $40 million of long-term debt, or a total of $73 million since the end of the third quarter 2015. It took approximately three years to pay off the debt from our BCD Semiconductor acquisition, and we anticipate a similar timeframe for Pericom due to Diodes’ strong cash flow generation.
“As we look to the third quarter, we expect revenue to grow 5.6 percent sequentially at the mid-point, representing $250 million in a quarterly revenue run rate, which is an important milestone toward achieving our goal of $1 billion in annual revenue. Additionally, gross margin is expected to improve another 90 basis points at the mid-point of our guidance range of 32.5 percent, with operating expenses decreasing further as a percentage of sales. We are beginning to see improvements in the general market environment and anticipate a more typical seasonal cycle going into the quarter.”
