Revenue in the April quarter increases 1% sequentially to $779 million; ADI returns $344 million to shareholders
“The breadth and diversity of ADI’s business model was evident in our results this quarter, with broad-based strength across our business to business (B2B) markets of industrial, automotive, and communications infrastructure more-than-offsetting a weak consumer market,” said Vincent Roche, President and CEO. “In addition, we repurchased $214 million of our shares in response to stock price volatility, which enabled a third consecutive quarter of share count reduction.”
“Looking ahead, stable order flows in the B2B markets lead us to plan for a largely seasonal third quarter in these markets, and for sequential revenue growth to resume in the consumer market. Importantly for ADI, we expect our B2B markets, in the aggregate, to grow in the mid-to-high single digits on a year-over-year basis in the third quarter.”
ADI also announced that the Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.42 per outstanding share of common stock. The dividend will be paid on June 7, 2016 to all shareholders of record at the close of business on May 27, 2016.
