Silicon Labs Announces Record Quarterly Revenue

AUSTIN, Texas, April 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicon Labs (NASDAQ: SLAB), a leading provider of silicon, software and solutions for a smarter, more connected world, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended April 3, 2021.

First quarter GAAP and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $0.29 and $0.91, respectively.

"Despite significant supply constraints, strong bookings and durable demand momentum drove first quarter revenue to a new record of $255.5 million led by record revenue in IoT which grew 7% sequentially and 34% year-on-year," said Tyson Tuttle, CEO of Silicon Labs. "We continue to lead the market in wireless connectivity for a vast array of intelligent solutions. Last week's announcement to become a pure-play leader of intelligent, wireless connectivity for the IoT coupled with the global economic recovery from the pandemic fuels our excitement to capitalize on the massive growth opportunity in front of us."

First Quarter Financial Highlights
