Dialog Semiconductor Plc.: Dialog Semiconductor Raises Q3 2011 Guidance
KIRCHHEIM/TECK, Germany — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 27, 2011 — Dialog Semiconductor plc (FWB: DLG), a provider of highly integrated innovative power management, audio and short range wireless technologies, is pleased to announce that it has experienced demand above expectation for its products, which has translated into increased sales for the third quarter of 2011.
With three trading days still remaining in the quarter, Dialog now expects to achieve record revenue in the range of $137.0 to $140.0 million for Q3 2011.
During the quarter, Dialog also received a net cash settlement of approximately $2.0 million mainly against revenues that had not been recognised in 2006 as a result of the insolvency of BenQ Mobile. This will have a positive effect of approximately 1 percentage point on the quarterly gross margin for Q3 2011.
A full update on the Q3 2011 trading performance will be provided within Dialog's Q3 2011 results announcement on 25 October 2011. Tomorrow, Thursday 29 September, Dialog will hold an analyst and investor day in London. The presentations from that day will be posted soon thereafter on the company's website at:
