Factors to Consider

SMART Global’s strong execution and solid momentum across Brazil Products, Intelligent Platform Solutions and LED Solutions are expected to have driven its performance in fourth-quarter fiscal 2021.

The inclusion of Cree LED in the company’s business and the positive contributions from it are likely to get reflected in top-line growth. Growing traction across Cree’s general lighting, specialty lighting, video and horticulture lighting products is expected to have been a major positive.

The robust Intelligent Platform Solutions segment is anticipated to have continued benefiting the company’s SMART Embedded and SMART Wireless businesses in the quarter-to-be-reported on the back of strong momentum across Penguin Computing and Penguin Edge brands.

Strengthening Penguin's cloud-based solutions as well as solutions focused on core, data center, AI and analytics are expected to have driven the company’s customer momentum in the quarter under review.

Solid unit demand in PC notebooks and servers is likely to have aided growth in the Brazil Products segment in the soon-to-be-reported quarter.

The company is also upbeat about its Specialty Memory business. Expanding product families is likely to have driven sales within this business unit in the to-be-reported quarter.

However, the impacts of the coronavirus-induced supply-chain constraints and other uncertainties are expected to get reflected in SMART Global’s fiscal fourth-quarter results.
