— Cypress Semiconductor (NASDAQ: CY) reported fourth-quarter 2019 adjusted earnings of $0.28 per share, down from $0.35 last year. The bottom line missed the analysts’ expectations of $0.29 per share.
— Revenues declined by 7% to $559.57 million versus $563.81 million expected. This was hurt by the divestiture of its NAND business, which was completed on April 1, 2019.
— The Microcontroller and Connectivity Division saw a 13% year-over-year jump in revenue despite the industry headwinds, as well as the US-China trade tensions. The smaller Memory Products Division, meanwhile, fell 36.4%.
— The company continues to see strong adoption of its connect and compute products across the automotive and Internet of Things end-markets, which drove Microcontroller and Connectivity Division revenue in fiscal 2019 in a challenging environment.
