(PRNewsfoto/Silicon Labs)

"Though the market environment remains volatile, with inventory corrections continuing across our end markets, we delivered top and bottom-line results ahead of expectations," said Matt Johnson, President and Chief Executive Officer at Silicon Labs. "We expect to return to sequential revenue growth, beginning in the first quarter, as our customers destock their inventories, design wins continue ramping to production, and bookings trends improve."

  • Industrial & Commercial revenue for the quarter was $60 million
  • Home & Life revenue for the quarter was $27 million

  • GAAP R&D expenses were $83 million
  • GAAP SG&A expenses were $34 million
  • GAAP operating loss was $73 million
  • GAAP diluted loss per share was $(2.19)

  • Non-GAAP SG&A expenses were $28 million
  • Non-GAAP operating loss was $47 million
