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.

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists looked at the tools and environments that are being put to use in IoT deployments, as well as the team skills a modern enterprise IT shop needs to keep things running, get a handle on all this data, and deliver...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
"Tintri focuses on the Ops side of the DevOps, which basically is pushing more and more of the accessibility of the infrastructure to the developers and trying to get behind the scenes," explained Dhiraj Sehgal of Tintri in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
