First Fiscal Quarter 2024 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 earnings release for a further discussion of our use of non-GAAP measures, including quantification of known expected adjustment items.

“We expect revenue to be $1.175 to $1.225 billion in the December quarter,” said Kris Sennesael, senior vice president and chief financial officer of Skyworks. “At the mid-point of the revenue range, we anticipate non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.95. We expect our mobile business to demonstrate momentum, while in broad markets we expect to continue to digest excess inventory in select segments, affecting our revenue outlook.”
