Cirrus Logic beat analysts’ expectations on its fiscal first-quarter earnings and revenue, sending its shares soaring on Thursday.
The semiconductor company reported adjusted earnings of 35 cents a share, which surpassed analysts’ estimate of 15 cents.
Although revenue declined from $254.4 million a year ago to $238.3 million in the quarter, it was still higher than the Street's forecast of $221.9 million. The year-over-year drop in revenue has been attributed by Cirrus to mainly lower sales of portable products shipping in smartphones, along with digital headsets and adapters, which were offset to some extent by increased amplifier sales at Android customers.
For the second quarter, Cirrus has projected revenue to range between $300 million and $340 million.
