Macom Completes Auto Business Sell-off

Company releases new financial guidance for Q4

Macom has completed the previously announced sell-off of its automotive business to Autoliv ASP. This was for approximately $100 million in cash, plus the opportunity to receive up to an additional $30 million in cash based on the achievement of revenue-and customer order based earn-out targets through 2019.

In conjunction with closing the divestiture, Macom announced financial guidance for its fiscal fourth quarter ending October 2, 2015, excluding the Automotive business, which is now classified as discontinued operations. Macom expects revenue to be in the range of $110 to $114 million, or an increase of 1.0 percent to 4.5 percent, compared to the fiscal third quarter 2015 without Automotive. Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be between 56 percent and 59 percent, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share between $0.32 and $0.34 on an anticipated 55.5 million shares outstanding.

Commenting on the closing, John Croteau, president and CEO stated: "We are pleased to complete the divestiture of our Automotive business, which we believe represents a key step towards realizing our full potential as a pure play high-performance analog semiconductor company. Since announcing the transaction, we have become increasingly confident in the accelerated growth of our business, which we now expect to replace the pre-divestiture earnings contribution from the Auto business within a few quarters. 

He added: "With our remaining business well aligned with our high-growth, high margin model, we expect to achieve our target of 60 percent non-GAAP gross margin in the first half of fiscal 2016 and 30 percent non-GAAP operating margin as we exit fiscal 2016. This exceptional financial profile will position Macom in the highest performing segment of our industry and serve as a key differentiator with both customers and investors alike."



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
