Commenting on the results, Dr. Keh-Shew Lu, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Revenue set a new record both organically and on a consolidated basis, increasing 18% sequentially and exceeding the high-end of our guidance range, in what has historically been a seasonally down quarter for our business. Our growth was driven by record total POS revenue as a result of records in both Asia and Europe combined with strong growth in North America. We also achieved records in our computing end market, driven by record Pericom product revenue, and the automotive market due to strong organic growth in Diodes’ automotive business. Combined with our expense management and operating efficiencies, we delivered the highest quarter of adjusted earnings per share, which increased 25% sequentially.

“The integration of LSC is also progressing well and ahead of schedule, as we have already begun to harvest the benefit of manufacturing synergies from improved factory loading with both LSC and Diodes’ products. Our global manufacturing footprint is serving as a key advantage at a time when the broader semiconductor industry is challenged by supply and capacity constraints. We have both internal and external capacity to support the increasing demand we are seeing for our products. As a result, we expect to deliver another quarter of sequential growth in the second quarter coupled with a continued expansion in bottom-line profitability.”
