Factors at Play
Solid demand from global customers is likely to have driven NeoPhotonics’ second-quarter performance. Tender activities suggest that most of the company’s products are being sold through end customers in China, which is a positive.
Accelerated deployment of 5G in China is likely to have fueled demand for NeoPhotonics’ products during the June-end quarter.
However, supply-chain disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic might have dampened the company’s overall quarterly performance. Moreover, higher operating expenses, thanks to increase in variable compensation, are likely to have weighed on the company’s performance during the quarter under review.
