Our fabless business model and the strength of our balance sheet provide us with financial resilience and operational flexibility to navigate the current circumstances.Q1 2021 Financial overviewRevenue increased 47% over Q1 2020 at US$366 million due to strong performance across the product portfolio. Excluding the contribution of Adesto, revenue was 37% above Q1 2020. In particular, sales growth of PMICs, CMICs, audio, and Bluetooth(R) low energy ("BLE") was driven by the continuing strength of consumer demand for headphones, fitness trackers, digital watches, notebooks, and tablets. Group revenue excluding legacy licensed main PMICs was up 61% year-on-year.Gross margin was 49.7%, 10 bps below Q1 2020 (Q1 2020: 49.8%). Underlying gross margin was 50.0% 40bps below Q1 2020 (Q1 2020: 50.4%). This decrease was mainly the result of revenue mix.Operating expenses ("OPEX"), comprising SG&A and R&D expenses, in Q1 2021 were 28% higher than in Q1 2020, representing 40.1% of revenue (Q1 2020: 46.2%). The increase in OPEX was mainly due to the acquisition of Adesto, and costs related to the recommended acquisition by Renesas. In Q1 2021, we incurred US$9.5 million related to the Renesas transaction and US$0.9 million integration costs related to the acquisition of Adesto. Underlying OPEX in Q1 2021 was 11% above Q1 2020 (Q1 2020: US$95.2 million), representing 28.8% of revenue (Q1 2020: 38.3%). The increase in underlying OPEX was mainly driven by the additional OPEX from Adesto.In Q1 2021, the Company continued to make good progress on the execution of the planned cost synergies. This aims to improve efficiency, protect profitability, and strengthen cash flow generation.R&D expenses were 13% above Q1 2020 representing 22.3% of revenue (Q1 2020: 29.1%). Underlying R&D expensesin Q1 2021 were 9% above Q1 2020 representing 19.1% of revenue (Q1 2020: 25.9%). The increase in R&D and underlying R&D expenses was mainly due to the acquisition of Adesto as well as continuing investment in future growth.SG&A expenses in Q1 2021 were 54% higher than in Q1 2020, representing 17.8% of revenue (Q1 2020: 17.1%).Underlying SG&A expenses in Q1 2021 were 14% above Q1 2020 representing 9.7% of revenue (Q1 2020: 12.4%).The increase in SG&A and underlying SG&A expenses was mainly the result of additional expenses from the acquisition of Adesto.In Q1 2021, other operating income and underlying operating income, which comprised income from R&D contracts, were below Q1 2020 at US$1.5 million (Q1 2020: US$8.5 million and US$3.1 million respectively).Operating profit in Q1 2021 was US$36.6 million, 109% above Q1 2020 (Q1 2020: US$17.5 million), mainly due to the higher revenue and partially offset by the incremental operating expenses from the acquisition of Adesto.Underlying operating profit was 140% above Q1 2020, at US$79.2 million (Q1 2020: US$33.0 million) driven by the increase in revenue offsetting additional operating expenses from the acquisition of Adesto.The effective tax rate in Q1 2021 was 29.2% (Q1 2020: 30.4%). Our relatively high effective tax rates for Q1 2021 and Q1 2020 are principally due to the distorting effect on our income tax expense of the tax and accounting treatments of share- based compensation and business combinations. The underlying effective tax rate in Q1 2021 was 19.6%, down 10bps on the Q1 2020 underlying effective tax rate of 19.7%.In Q1 2021, net income was US$26.1 million, 92% above Q1 2020 (Q1 2020: US$13.6 million). This increase was mostly due to the increase in operating profit. Underlying net income was US$63.9, 128% higher year-on-year mainly driven by the same factor.Diluted EPS in Q1 2021 was 89% above Q1 2020 at US$0.36 (Q1 2020: US$0.19). Underlying diluted EPS in Q1 2021 was 128% higher year-on-year to US$0.89 (Q1 2020: US$0.39).At the end of Q1 2021, our total inventory level was US$143 million, 10% below the previous quarter. This is equivalent to 70 days of inventory representing a 6-day increase in our days of inventory from Q4 2020, mainly due to thelower revenue.At the end of Q1 2021, we held cash and cash equivalents of US$534 million (Q1 2020: US$965 million). The year- on-year movement was mostly due to the acquisition of Adesto. Cash flow from operating activities in Q1 2021 was US$26.0 million which was above Q1 2020 (Q1 2020: outflow of US$49.0 million). The year-on-year movement wasmainly due to higher cash generated from operations and working capital. In Q1 2021, the Group generated free cash flow of US$9.9 million, which was above Q1 2020 (Q1 2020: outflow of US$59.0 million) due to the higher cash flow from operating activities. At the end of the quarter, the remaining principal amount of the US$300 million prepayment from our largest customer that is outstanding was US$50.0 million.Subject to obtaining the necessary approvals and satisfying the other closing conditions, it is expected that the acquisition of the entire issued and to be issued share capital of the Company by Renesas Electronics Corporation, will become effective during the second half of 2021.Q1 2021 Segmental overviewDialog is a fabless semiconductor company primarily focused on the development of highly integrated mixed-signal products for consumer electronics and other high-growth markets.
