“We delivered strong fiscal 2023 financial results.

Despite lower revenue, we delivered consistent non-GAAP operating margin sequentially and a 40 basis point improvement compared to the same quarter a year ago.”

“The team continues to demonstrate resilience in a dynamic market environment. Over the last year, we’ve made significant investments to support new programs, further diversify within our end-markets and expand our capabilities, positioning our business to capture future opportunities.”

“Our first quarter outlook is down sequentially, driven by some customers continuing to adjust inventory levels and ongoing macroeconomic uncertainty. We expect headwinds for the next couple of quarters with an improvement in the back half of the year. We remain confident in our strategy and long-term financial performance,” concluded Sola.
