Fourth Fiscal Quarter 2022 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.

“We expect double-digit sequential revenue and earnings growth in the September quarter,” said Kris Sennesael, senior vice president and chief financial officer of Skyworks. “Specifically, in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2022, we anticipate revenue to be between $1.375 billion and $1.425 billion with non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $2.90 at the midpoint of our revenue range, representing sequential revenue and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share growth of 14% and 19%, respectively. In addition, given our conviction in Skyworks’ strategic outlook and strong cash flow generation, we are announcing another substantial increase to our quarterly dividend.”
