“We currently see a broad-based slowdown in the demand environment, which we believe is driven by continued geopolitical uncertainties, as well as the effects of export restrictions on one of our largest customers. As a result, our customers are actively reducing their inventory levels, and we are taking a conservative stance for the rest of the year,” said CEO Hock Tan.
Among the peers, Analog Devices (ADI) last month reported lower earnings and revenues for its most recent quarter, hurt by muted demand in the consumer and industrial segments. Earnings decreased year-over-year to $1.36 per share on revenues of $1.53 billion. Earlier, Intel (INTC) posted flat revenues and higher earnings for the first quarter. Revenues matched the market estimates, while earnings beat.
