Cirrus Logic, Inc. (CRUS - Free Report) is slated to release first-quarter fiscal 2021 results on Aug 3.
For the fiscal first quarter, the company expects revenues between $200 million and $250 million. The Zacks Consensus Estimate is pegged at $225.5 million, indicating a year-over-year decline of 5.3%.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for quarterly earnings is pinned at 30 cents, suggesting a 14.3% decline, year on year.
The company’s earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in each of the trailing four quarters, the average being 66.8%.
In the last reported quarter, it delivered non-GAAP earnings per share of 68 cents, which outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 47 cents as well as came in higher than the year-ago figure of 35 cents.
Total revenues of $279.3 million also surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $263 million and improved 16% year over year.
Let’s see how things have shaped up for the upcoming announcement.
Cirrus Logic’s fiscal first-quarter performance is likely to have benefited from robust demand for certain components. Solid customer engagement across its portfolio is anticipated to have been a tailwind as well.
Rising demand for the company’s products in applications such as tablets, laptops and digital headsets is likely to have been a consistent growth driver. Buoyant demand for smart codecs, boosted amplifiers and haptic drivers in the Android market is also expected to have been a key growth catalyst.
Nonetheless, Cirrus Logic quarterly performance might have been affected by the decline in smartphone volumes due to the pandemic-induced shift in demand.
Additionally, intense competition, adverse currency translations and a volatile macroeconomic environment were primary challenges for the company during the quarter under review.
