On a GAAP basis, revenue for Qorvo’s fiscal 2020 first quarter was $776 million with a gross margin of 37.9%. The overall operating income stood at $55 million and diluted earnings per share were recorded at $0.33. On a non-GAAP basis, gross margin was 46.2%, operating income was $190 million and diluted earnings per share were $1.36.

Financial Outlook

According to Mark Murphy, CFO of Qorvo, the company delivered June quarter results above revised guidance on strong operating performance and increased overall mobile demand, including select product shipments to Huawei late in the quarter. The company’s record June quarter free cash flow reflects strong operating income generation, working capital effects, and capex discipline. The outlook for the September quarter considers seasonal ramps offset by the continued impact of U.S. Department of Commerce trade restrictions.

Qorvo currently believes the demand environment in its end markets supports the following expectations for the September 2019 quarter:

  • Quarterly revenue in the range of $745 million to $765 million
  • Non-GAAP gross margin of approximately 46% to 46.5%
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.30 at the midpoint of guidance

Qorvo’s actual quarterly results may differ from these expectations and projections, and such differences may be material.
