“During the third quarter, as expected, revenue decreased from the second quarter on inventory adjustments by our distribution and EMS customers in response to softened demand in industrial markets and contracting lead times. Nevertheless, we once again intentionally increased inventory with our distribution partners as we continued to execute our strategy of broadening our participation in this higher margin channel.
The capacity readiness activities we have underway are increasing our value to the distribution channel and reliably supporting our accelerating design activities related to the megatrends of e-mobility, sustainability and connectivity,” said Joel Smejkal, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, as announced separately today, we have signed a purchase agreement to acquire Newport wafer fab which will accelerate our plan to scale manufacturing and advance the technology differentiation of our silicon carbide MOSFETs.”
4Q 2023 Outlook
For the fourth quarter of 2023, management expects revenues in the range of $770 million and $810 million and a gross profit margin in the range of 25.5% +/- 50 basis points.
