Griffin, chairman, chief executive officer and president of Skyworks. “Throughout the fiscal year, our connectivity solutions enabled a broad set of applications across the mobile, IoT, automotive, data center and infrastructure markets. Our decades of investments in innovative products, deep customer relationships and internal fabrication capabilities are enabling us to effectively navigate a challenging macroeconomic and geopolitical environment.

First Fiscal Quarter 2023 Outlook

We provide earnings guidance on a non-GAAP basis because certain information necessary to reconcile such guidance to GAAP is difficult to estimate and dependent on future events outside of our control. Please refer to the attached Discussion Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures in this press release for a further discussion of our use of non-GAAP measures, including quantification of known expected adjustment items.

“Given broad demand weakness, we expect revenue to decline on a sequential basis,” said Kris Sennesael, senior vice president and chief financial officer of Skyworks. “Specifically, in the first fiscal quarter of 2023, we anticipate revenue to be between $1.300 billion and $1.350 billion with non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $2.59 at the midpoint of our revenue range.”
