Bernin (Grenoble), France, April 21st, 2021 – Soitec (Euronext Paris), a world leader in designing and manufacturing innovative semiconductor materials, today announced consolidated revenues of 180.7 million Euros for the fourth quarter of FY’21 (ended March 31st, 2021), down 11.3% compared with the record level of 203.8 million Euros achieved in the fourth quarter of FY’20. This is the combination of a 6.2% decrease at constant exchange rates and a negative currency impact of 5.1%.

On a sequential basis, fourth quarter sales were up by 23.0% at constant exchange rates compared with the third quarter of FY’21, confirming the quarter-over-quarter sales increase that has been anticipated at the beginning of the fiscal year.

Paul Boudre, Soitec’s CEO, commented: “We finished the year in line with our guidance, succeeding in achieving a small growth of revenues at constant exchange rate despite the economic environment created by the health situation. We increased our sales quarter after quarter throughout the year, this fourth quarter being the second highest quarter ever achieved by Soitec, and, in the meantime, generated more balanced revenues from one quarter to another.

This strong performance bodes well for the future. We recovered our growth dynamic from our second fiscal quarter onward and we will pursue this trajectory in the next 12 months and beyond. We continued to recruit new talents and we are gradually adding production capacity to be able to meet growing customer demand. The innovative semiconductor materials are at the center of requirements driven by massive deployment of 5G platform and accelerating adoption of mega trends of car electrification and Artificial Intelligence.”
