Infineon Technologies AG reported results for the first quarter of the 2024 fiscal year (period ended 31 December 2023).

“In the prevailing difficult macroeconomic climate, Infineon is proving robust,” says Jochen Hanebeck, CEO of Infineon. “In consumer, communication, computing and IoT applications, we are not anticipating a noticeable recovery in demand until the second half of the calendar year. Our expectations for the automotive sector remain virtually unchanged from November, despite a slowdown in demand in electromobility outside China. As a company, we are consistently adapting to this situation, so that we meet our financial targets for the current fiscal year. At the same time, we remain committed to our major investments for the future, as we want to exploit the long-term growth opportunities arising from decarbonization and digitalization.”
