Business Outlook
“For full year 2017, we expect sales of our client SSD controllers to continue growing strongly, but NAND flash availability will affect our SSD Solutions,” said Wallace Kou, President and CEO of Silicon Motion. “NAND flash tightness will start affecting our SSD Solutions beginning in the first quarter.  Additionally in the first quarter, our client SSD controllers will decline seasonally, with growth restarting in the following quarter.”

For the first quarter of 2017, management expects:
