Let’s see how things have shaped up for Diodes prior to this announcement.

Factors to Consider

Diodes’ strong portfolio of products has positioned it well to capitalize on high-growth areas like IoT: wearables, home automation, smart infrastructure, smartphones, 5G, cloud computing, server, storage, data centers, connected cars, embedded systems and precision controls. This is expected to have contributed to the company’s growth in the second quarter.

Recovery in the automotive market bodes well for Diodes. Infotainment & Telematics, Body Control Electronics, Power Train, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, Interior and Exterior Lighting, and Motor control are some of the areas the company is expanding its footprint in. This is expected to have driven Diodes’ top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter.

Increasing IC content in embedded systems is expected to boost Diodes’ industrial top-line growth. Strong demand for the company’s Pericom product is likely to have aided top-line growth as well.

Synergies from the acquisition of LITE-ON Semiconductor are expected to have benefited Diodes’ revenues in the to-be-reported quarter.
