MACOM Reports Fiscal Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

MACOM has announced its financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended March 30, 2018. They reported a revenue of $150.4 million in the 2nd Quarter of 2018 which is a decrease of 19.2% compared to $186.1 million in the 2nd Quarter of the previous fiscal year and an increase of 14.9% compared to $130.9 million in the prior fiscal quarter. The December quarter marked the bottom of the cycle for MACOM in terms of revenue and demand, as evidenced by their 15% sequential growth. Across their served markets, order intake and customer forecasts returned to more normalized patterns in the fiscal second quarter.

Following last year’s cyclical downturn in China, MACOM believes the industry is entering the next phase of global infrastructure spending driven by 5G Telecom, continued strong investment by Cloud Service Providers, and now, a surge in defense spending and industrial capital investment. They have spent the last couple of years developing a portfolio of disruptive products and technologies to service these targeted areas of secular growth. Major customers have validated their technology and capabilities and are actively sponsoring them as they work to ramp volume.

Moving forward, they expect sales across all their end markets to contribute to top line growth quarter-by-quarter throughout calendar 2018. The exact slope will be paced by their ability to scale operationally, both with their strategic suppliers and in their own factories. They believe the future contribution from these sales can provide significant operating leverage as they monetize what were previously strategic investments for the company.

In the last quarter, MACOM highlighted the impact that certain competitive developments had on their LR4 subassembly business. In response, they took proactive action to exit the manufacture and sale of optical subassemblies. Consistent with their overall goal of providing high-margin analog and photonic semiconductor components they will now sell chipsets. This action is expected to result in better overall cost structures for our TOSA customers, with improved gross margins for MACOM.
