Qorvo Completes $400M Share Repurchase

Rapid completion 'indicative of Qorvo's strong free cash flow' says CEO

US RF company Qorvo has completed a $400 million share repurchase program authorised by its board of directors in August 2015.

Under the August 2015 share repurchase program, Qorvo repurchased approximately 7.3 million shares of common stock at an average price of $54.75 per share. 

Since February 2015, Qorvo has repurchased approximately $600 million of its common stock, with approximately $500 million expended in the September 2015 quarter.

Bob Bruggeworth, president and CEO of Qorvo, said: "Qorvo repurchased $500 million of our common stock over a period of approximately thirty days. The Qorvo management team and board of directors believe that the rapid completion of this repurchase program is indicative of Qorvo's strong free cash flow and underscores our commitment to building stockholder value."

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.
