Revenue increases to $870 million, Free Cash Flow margin in the quarter increases over 600 basis points compared to the prior year
“We executed well in the third quarter and delivered revenue and diluted earnings per share results that exceeded our revised guidance,” said Vincent Roche, President and CEO. “During the quarter, we also announced the proposed acquisition of Linear Technology Corporation, a combination that will create a trusted analog industry leader, capable of delivering tremendous benefits to our customers, our employees, and our shareholders.”
“Looking ahead to the October quarter, we are planning for revenue to increase sequentially, and be in the range of $910 million to $970 million. By end market, we expect the industrial, automotive, and communications infrastructure markets, in the aggregate, to remain largely stable to their third quarter levels, and to increase in the low-to-mid-single digits compared to the prior year. In the consumer market, strong customer demand in the portables sector leads us to plan for continued sequential revenue growth in this market.”
ADI also announced that the Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.42 per outstanding share of common stock. The dividend will be paid on September 7, 2016 to all shareholders of record at the close of business on August 26, 2016.
