Commenting on the financial performance, Jean-Marc Chery, President & CEO, of STMicroelectronics, said “Q2 net revenues and gross margin came in at the high-end of our business outlook range driven by continued strong demand globally.”

“On a year-over-year basis, Q2 net revenues increased 43.4%. Q2 gross margin of 40.5% and operating margin of 16.3% improved 550 and 1,120 basis points, respectively, and net income increased 357.2% to $412 million,” he added.

“We will now drive the Company based on a plan for FY21 revenues of $12.5 billion, plus or minus $100 million, a year-over-year increase of 22.3% at the mid-point. This growth is expected to be driven by strong dynamics in all the end markets we address and our engaged customer programs. Our CAPEX plan will now be about $2.1 billion for 2021,” he said.

The company’s gross profit totaled $1.21 billion, a y-o-y increase of 66.1%.
