Cirrus Logic Reports Q1 FY22 Revenue of $277.3 Million

Content Gains in High-Performance Mixed-Signal Expected to Fuel Strong Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth in Q2 FY22

AUSTIN, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 28, 2021 — Cirrus Logic, Inc. (Nasdaq: CRUS) today posted on its website at the quarterly Shareholder Letter that contains the complete financial results for the first quarter fiscal year 2022, which ended June 26, 2021, as well as the company’s current business outlook.

“In the past quarter, Cirrus Logic accelerated both sales momentum and execution of our growth strategy. We grew revenue by 14 percent year on year, increased penetration of the Android market, began shipments with a leading laptop OEM, ramped new content in anticipation of product launches in the latter half of the year and advanced the development of a number of new components that are expected to drive future revenue growth,” said John Forsyth, Cirrus Logic president and chief executive officer. “The company’s recent investments in power-related products, including the acquisition of Lion Semiconductor, are expected to meaningfully expand our addressable market and continue the exciting progress we have been making in building new and strategic areas of our business. With a strong pipeline of audio and high-performance mixed-signal products ramping in the coming months, we are upbeat about the next several quarters and continue to anticipate accelerated revenue growth in FY22.”

Reported Financial Results – First Quarter FY22

  • Revenue of $277.3 million;
  • GAAP gross margin of 50.5 percent and non-GAAP gross margin of 50.6 percent;
  • GAAP operating expenses of $120.8 million and non-GAAP operating expenses of $103.1 million; and
  • GAAP earnings per share of $0.29 and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.54.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information is included in the tables accompanying this press release.

Business Outlook – Second Quarter FY22

  • Revenue is expected to range between $430 million and $470 million;
  • GAAP gross margin is forecasted to be between 50 percent and 52 percent; and
  • Combined GAAP R&D and SG&A expenses are anticipated to range between $135 million and $141 million, including approximately $17 million in stock-based compensation expense and $3 million in amortization of acquired intangibles.

The company has entered into a long-term Capacity Reservation and Wafer Supply Commitment Agreement with GlobalFoundries, a foundry partner for many of our strategic products. This will expand our ability to address unprecedented market demand and provide customers with much-needed supply assurance. Given our anticipated strong cash generation, we believe this agreement is a good use of our financial resources: it secures supplier commitments to capacity expansion in support of our sales growth, alleviates some of the supply uncertainty currently affecting the company and its customers, and ensures supplier investment in additional technologies for future products.

Cirrus Logic will host a live Q&A session at 5 p.m. EDT today to answer questions related to its financial results and business outlook. Participants may listen to the conference call on the Cirrus Logic website.
