Factors to Note
onsemi’s second-quarter performance is likely to have benefited from key megatrends such as electric vehicles (EV), advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), energy infrastructure and factory automation, which have been experiencing rising demand.
The company’s selective investments to expand gross profit at favorable margins might have contributed to the second quarter revenues. Manufacturing efficiencies, reallocation of capacity to strategic and high-margin products to drive favorable mix shift, and continued elimination of price-to-value discrepancies may have driven higher margin performance in the to-be-reported quarter.
The company’s expanding portfolio of highly differentiated intelligent power and sensing products has been attracting new customers who have been signing long-term agreements with the company. This is likely to have driven second-quarter revenues, earnings and free cash flow growth.
In second-quarter 2022, the energy infrastructure market is expected to have favored the top-line growth of onsemi, as utility-scale power plant installations have increased worldwide to reduce the climate impact of fossil fuel-based power plants.
