LONDON

Dialog Semiconductor plc (XETRA: DLG), a provider of highly integrated power management, AC/DC power conversion, solid state lighting and Bluetooth(R) Smart wireless technology, today reports Q4 2015 IFRS revenue of approximately $397 million, at the upper end of the guidance range announced on 15 December 2015.

In line with the strong cash generative nature of the business, in Q4 2015 we expect an increase in cash and cash equivalents of approximately $89 million. At 31 December 2015 the company anticipates a cash and cash equivalents balance of approximately $567 million.

We anticipate continuing strong revenue momentum from our connectivity and power conversion products through 2016. Based on our current visibility, we expect the recent softening of the smartphone market to continue through the first half of 2016. As a result, we expect single digit year-on-year overall revenue growth for the full year 2016.
