WILMINGTON, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 24, 2020 — Analog Devices, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADI), a leading global high-performance semiconductor company, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2020, which ended October 31, 2020.

“ADI delivered fourth quarter results above the high-end of our outlook. We grew revenue across all of our B2B markets, expanded operating margins and increased EPS by double-digits year-over-year,” said Vincent Roche, President and CEO of Analog Devices. “Fiscal 2020 represented a year of strategic progress against an unprecedented backdrop, and our results continue to highlight the insatiable demand for our high-performance analog and mixed signal solutions. Overall, I’m proud of how our global team embraced and learned from this challenging time and continued to execute at a high level to generate and capture value for all stakeholders.”

Roche continued, “Looking ahead, our pending acquisition of Maxim Integrated is an opportunity to increase our scale and scope to deliver disruptive innovation for our customers while driving further profitable growth. The combination strengthens our industry leadership position, further diversifying our business across markets and applications and solidifying ADI as the destination for the world’s best analog talent. While the macroenvironment remains fluid, we are cautiously optimistic that a broad-based recovery is underway and expect to build on this momentum in fiscal 2021.”
