Looking ahead into the second quarter, the company expects revenue in the range of $800-820 million and adjusted earnings of $1.46 per share. The consensus estimates EPS of $1.40 on revenue of $788.38 million. For the March quarter, the company expects new content opportunities and the ramp of its Sky5 solutions to drive better-than seasonal results.

The company’s board of directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.44 per share of its common stock. The dividend is payable on March 3, 2020, to stockholders of record at the close of business on February 11, 2020.

For the first quarter, the company said the results exceeded its expectations backed by global demand for its high-performance connectivity engines. The highly advanced Sky5 platform is fueling market adoption of 5G across a broadening customer set. The company believes its solutions will provide a critical connection, ensuring peak performance for 5G and Internet of Things usage cases.
