Dialog Semiconductor Reports Record Revenue for Q4 2013 and Full Year 2013

Dialog Semiconductor (FWB:DLG), a provider of highly integrated innovative power management, audio, AC/DC and short range wireless technologies, today announces record Q4 2013 IFRS revenue of approximately $352 million driven by stronger than anticipated demand in its Mobile Systems segment during December.

This represents a 31% year on year Q4 growth with full year IFRS revenue now expected to end at approximately $903 million, representing 17% growth over FY 2012. This will result in underlying full year revenue of approximately $910 million, up 18% on full year 2012.

On 29 October 2013 Dialog Semiconductor outlined expectations for a sequential and year-on-year improvement in Q4 2013 underlying gross margin that would result in an underlying gross margin improvement for FY2013 over FY2012. Given the increased revenue reported today, the Company anticipates a further positive contribution to its original underlying gross margin expectation.

Dialog expects an increase in cash and cash equivalents of approximately $29 million in Q4 2013 which includes a $10 million early debt repayment (from debt facilities as of Q3 2013:$114 million). At 31 December 2013 the company expects a cash and cash equivalent balance of approximately $186 million.

As the world moves toward more DevOps and Microservices, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. The Microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, NetFlix and so on, is at the heart of Cloud Foundry - a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is IaaS agnostic and supports vCloud, OpenStack and AWS. Serverless computing is revolutionizing computing. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Raghav...
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
