Financial Commentary and Outlook

Mark Murphy, Chief Financial Officer of Qorvo, said, “After achieving a record September quarter, we expect December quarter revenue to decrease sequentially amidst ongoing supply challenges and other factors impacting global smartphone demand. In the March quarter, we expect these challenges to moderate. We expect our full fiscal year 2022 to grow 15% and to deliver gross margin over 52%.”

Qorvo currently believes the supply/demand environment supports the following expectations for the December 2021 quarter:

  • Quarterly revenue of $1.09 billion to $1.12 billion
  • Non-GAAP gross margin between 52% and 52.5%
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $2.75 at the midpoint of guidance

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