“Our 5% year-over-year Q4 revenue growth in a very dynamic business environment demonstrates our continuing market engagement in Edge applications and with internet data center customers, both of which grew double-digits year-on-year,” said Charles Liang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We also delivered Q4 non-GAAP EPS that was relatively stable year-on-year despite elevated costs resulting from the impact of COVID-19 on our operations. While our Q1 outlook reflects continued pressures from unprecedented market developments, we are very encouraged as we look to the future, as the digital world continues to progress, evolve, and grow. We are using this period of disruption as an opportunity to invest in long-term growth and optimize our workforce and strategy. A key strategic action we are taking is shifting a greater portion of our operations and R&D to our Taiwan campus, which will result in lower costs. We remain committed to re-accelerating our revenue growth and resuming our long history of market share gain.”
Share Repurchase Authorization
The Company also announced today that, its Board of Directors has authorized a stock repurchase program pursuant to which the Company may repurchase up to $30 million of its common stock. The stock repurchase program is effective until December 31, 2020 or until the maximum amount of common stock is repurchased.
“By implementing this stock repurchase program, we can utilize our cash on hand to increase stockholder value while maintaining sufficient cash resources to fund our operations. The stock repurchase program reflects our ongoing commitment to improving the value of our common stock,” said Charles Liang, Chairman and CEO of the Company.
Stock repurchases may be made from time to time at prevailing prices in the open market, including pursuant to a Rule 10b5-1 plan. There can be no assurance of how many shares will be repurchased, and the repurchase program may be suspended for periods or discontinued at any time. The timing and amount of any shares repurchased will be determined based on an evaluation of market conditions and other factors. Share repurchases will be funded with cash on hand.
