Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2019: Sigma Designs, Inc.(SIGM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Data source: Silicon Laboratories.

    What happened with Silicon Labs this quarter?
    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met. In any case, the purchase significantly expands Silicon Labs’ position in mesh networking for smart homes.
