Key Factors to Note

The impacts of TE Connectivity’s footprint consolidation plans and stringent cost-cutting strategies are expected to get reflected in the fiscal first-quarter results.

Recovering overall auto production, along with the increasing production of hybrid and electric vehicles, is likely to have contributed well to sales growth of the company’s Transportation segment in the to-be-reported quarter.

Solid content growth is expected to have driven commercial transportation sales growth in the quarter under review. Positive contributions from the First Sensor buyout are expected to have benefited the sensor business.

In the Communication segment, strengthening momentum across data and devices, as well as appliances, is anticipated to have acted as a tailwind in the quarter under review. The growing traction across high-speed solutions for cloud applications is likely to have been another key catalyst.

In addition to this, strong momentum across factory automation applications is expected to have driven growth in the company’s industrial equipment sales in the fiscal first quarter. Strength across solar applications is likely to have contributed well to energy sales. These factors are expected to have benefited the company’s Industrial segment in the quarter under discussion.

All the above-mentioned factors are likely to have benefited TE Connectivity’s top line in the fiscal first quarter.

However, the impacts of sluggishness in commercial aerospace and uncertainties related to the coronavirus pandemic are expected to get reflected in the to-be-reported quarterly results.
