Qualcomm total revenues rose 63 per cent to nearly US$8 billion (RM33.8 billion), boosted by soaring sales of chips for connected devices that hit US$1.4 billion.The San Diego, California-based company is the biggest supplier of mobile phone chips in the world and the leader in 5G technology, supplying modem chips that help iPhones connect to wireless data networks and the modems and central processors for much of the Android market.

Shares were up 3.1 per cent to US$146.86 in after-market trading following the results, which could alleviate some concerns among investors about the impact of the shortage on the smart phone market, including the iPhone.Qualcomm Chief Executive Officer Cristiano Amon told investors during a conference call that the company's efforts to secure its chips from multiple manufacturing partners were making progress bolstering supplies, with the first shipments of significant volume in the fiscal third quarter and more to come in the coming months. headtopics.com

“We're still on track to materially improve supply by the end of the calendar year,” Amon said.The company is also benefiting from the exit from the global smartphone market of China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd. Huawei's flagship models did not use Qualcomm chips but its rivals, who are now snapping up market share, mostly do.

Qualcomm has boosted sales of other chips, such as radio-frequency chips that augment its 5G phone chips and whose sales have doubled in the past year. Sales are also growing for a variety of chips for cars and for “internet of things,” or IoT, applications.

Qualcomm said yesterday it expects sales of those chips to hit US$10 billion this fiscal year, up from US$6 billion the previous year. The company also said it expects adjusted profits of US$8.24 per share for its fiscal 2021, nearly double the year before.

Qualcomm's chip revenue forecast for the current fiscal fourth quarter had a midpoint of US$7.25 billion, compared with analyst estimates of US$6.83 billion, according to Refinitiv data.Chip shortageAmon said even as its own bottlenecks ease as it brings on more manufacturing partners, some of Qualcomm's customers cannot find the supporting chips from other vendors that they need to make full devices. headtopics.com

“We continue to see strong demand in every single business outpacing supply,” he said on the call.Apple on Tuesday predicted the chip shortage would start to hit its iPhone in the fourth quarter.Yesterday, Qualcomm said that global sales of 5G handsets for 2021 was likely to come in at the higher end of its forecast of 450 to 550 million handsets. That means that phone makers are likely directing any chips that are in short supply toward production of their more profitable 5G devices. Apple shares rose 0.14 per cent in after-hours trading after Qualcomm's results.

“While there remain some parts tightness in some periphery chips in the smartphone sector, we don't think its material enough to cause any meaningful downside, as the industry will prioritize the supply for 5G instead of 4G,” said Kinngai Chan, an analyst at Summit Insights Group.

Qualcomm forecast overall sales and adjusted profits with midpoints of US$8.8 billion and US$2.25 per share, above estimates of US$8.50 billion and US$2.04 per share, according to Refinitiv data.The company predicted revenue with a midpoint of US$1.55 billion from its patent licensing business, compared with analyst expectations of US$1.56 billion, according to Refinitiv data.

For the fiscal third quarter ended June 27, Qualcomm said overall adjusted revenues and adjusted profits were US$8 billion and US$1.92 per share, higher than estimates of US$7.58 billion and US$1.68 per share, according to Refinitiv data.Mobile handset chips remain Qualcomm's biggest seller, increasing 57 per cent to hit US$3.86 billion in the quarter. headtopics.com

“Qualcomm has done a phenomenal job in driving the 5G ecosystem. For sure it’s moving a lot faster than 4G,” said Paolo Pescatore, an analyst at PP Foresight.Sales of other chips have also been expanding, with radio frequency chips and IoT chips reaching sales of US$957 million and US$1.4 billion, up 114 per cent and 83 per cent from a year earlier, respectively. ― Reuters
