Powering the smart

Tell Me More

Our passion for innovation and entrepreneurial spirit ensures we remain at the core of mobile computing and the Internet of Things (“IoT”).

Through our collaborative R&D approach and responsible supply chain management, we develop and market highly-integrated power management and power efficient mixed-signal integrated circuits (“ICs”).

Our technologies contribute to extend battery life in portable devices and efficient connectivity in IoT applications, enhancing consumer experience and enabling our customers to differentiate and move fast to market.

Our partnership approach, operational flexibility and the quality of our products are key sources of value to our customers.

We invest in R&D up to 18 months ahead of product launch and we recover our investments through the sale of our semiconductors. Our customers’ product cycles range from one to five years. This, together with the strength of our customer relationships, means the Company has long-term visibility of business opportunities and revenue streams, a unique feature for semiconductor companies operating in consumer markets.

A fabless business model based on high Tier 1 customer penetration results in high volumes, longer-term revenue streams and ultimately in strong cash generation.

Corporate responsibility and a commitment to sustainable business practices are important to us. Our commitment to sustainability is outlined in greater detail on our annual sustainability report.

A growing business delivering strong cash flow generation

Our business has delivered strong revenue and earnings growth over the last five years. 2016 was a transition year of strong cash flow generation and solid strategic progress. Against the backdrop of lower year-on-year smartphone volumes, our gross margin and cash flow generation remained strong. In line with our strategic objectives, we sustained a healthy level of R&D investment to generate future profitable growth.

Our primary focus is consumer electronics, in particular mobility and smart connected devices. We are entering new segments and expanding our product portfolio to generate future revenue growth. Dialog is a strong cash generative business with a strong balance sheet.
