NXP Semiconductors Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results

NXP Semiconductors has recently reported financial results for the third quarter of 2019, ended September 29, 2019.

nxp logo“NXP delivered revenue of $2.3 billion for the third quarter. With sales near the high-end of our guidance and good expense control, we successfully delivered improved operating profitability above the high-end of our guidance range. Additionally, during the quarter we returned $79 million to our shareholders, for a total of $6.6 billion returned to shareholders since July 2018. Looking forward, we continue to believe that our product portfolio investments are addressing our customers’ long-term requirements, while in the short-term the global demand environment appears to have stabilized, but the intermediate demand environment continues to be uncertain, and has not markedly improved.” said Richard Clemmer, NXP Chief Executive Officer.
