5G deployment boosts Analog Devices Q1 results

Chipmaker Analog Devices (ADI) reported a 21% jump in earnings for the first quarter helped by lower costs and expenses as well as a decline in income taxes provision. The results exceeded analysts’ expectations, aided by the ongoing 4G upgrades and initial 5G deployments.

Net income climbed 21% to $355 million and earnings jumped 22% to $0.95 per share. Adjusted earnings dropped by 11% to $1.33 per share.

Revenue declined 2% to $1.54 billion. The top line was hurt by a fall in three segments. However, revenue came in at the high-end of the company’s guidance range with continued strength in its communications market related to ongoing 4G upgrades and initial 5G deployments.
