Commenting on the results, Dialog Chief Financial Officer, Wissam Jabre, said:

"Revenue for the second quarter exceeded our May guidance due to stronger than expected demand for tablets, notebooks and wearable products, driven by the recent global shift to a "work and learn from home" environment. In Q2 2020, we delivered strong sequential revenue growth and 89% increase in underlying operating profit over Q1 2020."

Dialog Chief Executive, Dr. Jalal Bagherli, added:

"The health and safety of our employees and business partners will remain our main priority as the restrictions imposed by the lockdown are gradually eased. While this easing takes place, we are pushing ahead with the expansion of our product portfolio, and the diversification of our customer base."

"With the completion of the Adesto acquisition post Q2 closing, we have moved closer towards our diversification goal. We look forward to building our industrial segment business over the mid-term, starting with integrating Adesto's talented employees and product portfolio into Dialog through the second half of this year."

Outlook

Including Adesto, in Q3 2020 we anticipate revenue to be in the range of US$340 million to US$380 million and underlying gross margin to be broadly in line with Q2 2020.

Update on COVID-19

Throughout the pandemic, our main focus has been to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees and business partners. As countries ease the lockdown restrictions that were imposed in the second half of March and April, we are gradually opening up some of our offices, albeit at a low capacity and following applicable Health and Safety guidelines. We continued to maintain a minimal staff presence in our test labs, where required, and adhered to recommended safe working practices. Our supply chain has remained stable during the quarter, with most suppliers and our customers' contract manufacturers continuing to operate at almost full capacity. Customer engagements are still managed remotely and so far, we have not seen any significant decrease in our levels of activity.

Our business remains resilient. Our fabless business model and the strength of our balance sheet provide us with financial resilience and operational flexibility to navigate the current circumstances.

Q2 2020 Financial overview

Revenue was significantly below Q2 2019 at US$302 million mostly due to the one-off license revenue of US$146 million in Q2 2019 and the expected decline in licensed main PMICs. Underlying revenue was 10% below Q2 2019, mainly the result of the expected decline in licensed main PMICs, partially offset by growth in mixed-signal products with our largest customer as well as growth in CMICs. In Q2 2020, we saw stronger than expected demand for tablets, notebooks
and wearable products, driven by the recent global shift to a "work and learn from home" environment. Group revenue excluding licensed main PMICs was up 11% year-on-year. License revenue of US$9 million related to the Apple agreement was reported in Corporate.

Gross margin was 50.2% significantly below year-on-year (Q2 2019: 64.7%) due to the positive contribution from the one- off license revenue in Q2 2019. Underlying gross margin was 50.6% up 90bps year-on-year. This increase was mainly the result of revenue mix, and continuing savings in manufacturing and overhead costs.

Operating expenses ("OPEX"), comprising SG&A and R&D expenses, in Q2 2020 were 3% below Q2 2019, representing 39.8% of revenue (Q2 2019: 25.7%). The decrease in OPEX was mostly due to lower SG&A expenses partially offset by the acquisitions of Creative Chips and FCI. Underlying OPEX in Q2 2020, were in line with Q2 2019, representing 32.4% of revenue (Q2 2019: 29.2%). The additional underlying OPEX from the acquisitions of Creative Chips and FCI were offset by cost savings across R&D and SG&A. In line with its long-term financial objectives, the Company has saving initiatives in place to reduce its cost base over time. Following the closing of Adesto, the Company has begun to execute the cost synergies plan. All these initiatives seek to improve efficiency, protect profitability, and strengthen cash flow generation.

R&D expenses and underlying R&D expenses in Q2 2020 were 2% above Q2 2019 representing 25.6% of revenue
(Q2 2019: 15.7%) and 22.8% of revenue (Q2 2019: 20.1%), respectively. The slight increase in underlying R&D expenses was mainly due to the acquisitions of Creative Chips and FCI together with lower R&D capitalisation partially offset by cost savings.

SG&A expenses in Q2 2020 were 11% below Q2 2019, representing 14.2% of revenue (Q2 2019: 10.0%). The decrease was driven by lower transaction costs together with cost savings partially offset by the acquisitions of Creative Chips and FCI. Underlying SG&A expenses in Q2 2020 were 5% below Q2 2019 representing 9.6% of revenue (Q2 2019: 9.1%).
The decrease in underlying SG&A expenses was mainly the result of cost savings partially offset by the acquisitions of Creative Chips and FCI.

Other operating income and underlying other operating income, which comprised income from R&D contracts, were significantly below Q2 2019 due to one-off items relating to the license agreement with our largest customer in Q2 2019. Other operating income in Q2 2020 was US$9.0 million (Q2 2019: US$28.9million) and underlying other operating income in Q2 2020 was US$7.4 million (Q2 2019: US$13.0 million).

Operating profit in Q2 2020 was US$40.5 million, 81% below Q2 2019, mainly due to the lower revenue, partially offset by higher gross margin together with lower operating expenses. Underlying operating profit was 24% below Q2 2019, at US$62.4 million driven by lower revenue and lower income from R&D contracts, partially offset by higher underlying gross margin.

The effective tax rate in H1 2020 was 23.2% (H1 2019: 22.9%) and in Q2 2020 was 19.7% (Q2 2019: 22.0%). Our relatively high effective tax rates for H1 2020, H1 2019 and Q2 2019 are principally due to the distorting effect on our income tax expense of the tax and accounting treatments of share-based compensation, business combinations, and certain of our strategic investments. The underlying effective tax rate in Q2 2020 was 19.7%, down 80bps on the Q2 2019 underlying effective tax rate of 20.5%.

Net income was 81% below Q2 2019 at US$32.4 million (Q2 2019: US$170.1 million). This decrease was mostly due to the decrease in operating profit. Underlying net income was 25% lower year-on-year mainly driven by the decrease in underlying operating profit.

Diluted EPS in Q2 2020 was 80% below Q2 2019 at US$0.45 (Q2 2019: US$2.20). Underlying diluted EPS in Q2 2020 was 20% lower year-on-year to US$0.69 (Q2 2019: US$0.86).

At the end of Q2 2020, our total inventory level was US$127 million (or ~76 days), which is 1% below the previous quarter, representing a 17-day decrease in our days of inventory from Q1 2020, mainly due to the higher revenue. During Q3 2020, we expect inventory value and days of inventory to increase ahead of the ramp of new products.

In the first settlement of the second tranche of the 2019 Buyback Programme on 18 May 2020, the Company purchased 654,087 ordinary shares for €16.8 million (US$18.3 million) at an initial average price of €25.72. Subsequent to quarter end, on 30 June 2020, we completed the second settlement of this tranche, purchasing 354,968 ordinary shares for
€12.3 million at an initial average price of €34.57.

At the end of Q2 2020, we held cash and cash equivalents of US$957 million (Q2 2019: US$1,141 million). Cash flow from operating activities in Q2 2020 was US$33.1 million which was below Q2 2019 (Q2 2019: US$300.1 million). The year-
on-year movement was due to the license agreement in Q2 2019 and the recoupment of the prepayment partially offset by working capital. In Q2 2019, cash flow from operating activities included approximately US$275 million relating to the license agreement with our largest customer. In Q2 2020, the Group generated free cash flow of US$24.0 million, which was below Q2 2019 (Q2 2019: US$290.3 million) due to the lower cash flow from operating activities.

In support of our growth strategy and the diversification of our business, on 29 June 2020, the Company acquired Adesto. On completion (Q3 2020) we paid US$405.6 million in cash and we expect a further net outflow in Q3 2020 of approximately US$92.1 million mainly in relation to the redemption of Adesto's convertible notes. All cash payments will be funded by the Company's cash balances. This acquisition accelerates Dialog's expansion into the growing Industrial IoT market that enables smart buildings and industrial automation (Industry 4.0), seamlessly driving cloud connectivity. Adesto has an established portfolio of industrial solutions for smart building automation that fully complements Dialog's manufacturing automation products.

Custom Mixed Signal (CMS)

In Q2 2020, revenue was US$186 million, 15% below Q2 2019 due to the expected decline in legacy licensed main PMICs partially offset by growth in new mixed-signal products. Revenue in CMS from our largest customer's
products not covered by the licensing agreement was up 19% year-on-year to US$76 million (Q2 2019: US$64 million). Underlying operating profit for CMS decreased 27% year-on-year to US$48.3 million, mainly due to the lower revenue and lower other operating income, partially offset by lower operating expenses.

During the quarter, we continued to receive requests for quotations from a range of tier one customers, for new custom designs for 2022 and beyond in diverse areas of power, battery management, display, and audio technologies.

There is a growing market opportunity for next generation battery management solutions, capable of supporting higher wattage chargers, safe and short charging times, as well as secondary charging from phones to other devices. Dialog is well positioned to capitalise on this opportunity, with a range of products built on our strong expertise in the design of mixed-signal and power-efficient ICs, meeting the requirements of a wide range of customers in mobile and consumer IoT end markets. We are currently engaged with the top mobile OEMs, with standard battery management products shipping in Q3 2020 and we expect revenue from high-volume contracts to begin with new smartphones in the second half of 2021.

In parallel, we continue to leverage our power management technology into new markets and geographies through the expansion of our platform reference designs. The collaborations with Renesas, Xilinx, and Telechips strengthen Dialog's presence in the automotive segment, in particular, Intelligent In-Vehicle Infotainment and ADAS. We have approximately 100 automotive customer engagements, most of which are expected to go into production over the next three years.

Advanced Mixed Signal (AMS)

During Q2 2020, AMS revenue was 1% below Q2 2019 due to lower volumes in backlighting and AC/DC charging partially offset by high growth in CMICs. The lower revenue was due to the impact of the cancellation of the Tokyo Olympics and live sports on the high-end TV market together with lower volumes from Korean OEMs. Operating profit was up 3% year- on-year mainly driven by product mix.

Dialog has successfully maintained a commanding market share in the rapid charge market through a combination of differentiated technology, speed of execution and wide support of rapid charge products, leading the industry in high power density AC/DC chargers.

Our broad product portfolio, which includes LED backlighting and Solid-State Lighting ("SSL") LED driver ICs, and proprietary digital control technology for power conversion, enable high quality solutions at a low cost. We are engaged with tier one customers in the high-end TV market and we are seeing a gradual expansion of our customer base in mobile and automotive display markets with medium term opportunities.

Dialog's configurable technology, including the highly successful GreenPAK(TM) product family, has become established as the leading choice in the market. Low power consumption and in-system programming enables customers to rapidly customise and integrate multiple analog, logic, and discrete components into a single chip. In Q2 2020, we launched a high-voltage GreenPAK(TM) product, ideal for consumer and industrial motor applications. We also released a new update for the GreenPAK(TM) Designer software package containing simulation capabilities to incorporate external components, ranging from passive components like shunt resistors to more complex devices like motors, which will
further reduce development time and simplify the design process across the entire GreenPAK(TM) portfolio. The expansion of the GreenPAK(TM) product range within the last 12 months will further accelerate its adoption across a wider range of applications, such as automotive as well as smartphone cameras. With additional new products to be launched in H2 2020, our expanded configurable product range will give our customers the flexibility to keep pace with rapidly changing market needs. The CMIC, along with other members of the GreenPAK(TM) family, replaces dozens of components in a wide range of applications to optimize flexibility, footprint, and a reduction of the bill of materials.

Connectivity and Audio (C&A)

During Q2 2020, revenue was 6% below Q2 2019 mainly due to the lower legacy Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications ("DECT") and BLE volumes. Operating profit in the quarter was also below Q2 2019 at US$1.8 million (Q2 2019: US$6.8 million). We continue to invest in the development of new BLE and audio products to take advantage
of market opportunities and position the segment for higher revenue growth and profitability over the coming years.

The financial performance in Q2 2020 improved significantly over the previous quarter. Revenue was up 26% sequentially driven by strong performance of BLE and audio products and operating profit increased significantly from a US$3.3million operating loss in Q1 2020.

Revenue from our SmartBond(TM) BLE System-on-Chip ("SoC") was 10% below Q2 2019, due to lower volumes, and up 29% sequentially as a result of increased demand from customers in Asia. Following the launch of SmartBond TINY(TM) and the SmartBond TINY(TM) module, in Q2 2020 we launched our first combo Wi-Fi and BLE module, the DA16200 SoC. This offering was purpose built for battery-powered IoT applications, including connected door locks, thermostats, security cameras and other devices that require an "always on" Wi-Fi connection, but may be only used occasionally.
Its VirtualZero(TM) technology enables the industry's lowest level of power consumption for Wi-Fi connectivity, so that even continuously connected devices can achieve up to five years of battery life in many use cases. Highly integrated, the SmartBond(TM) SoC family delivers the smallest, most power efficient BLE solutions available - and enables the lowest system costs.

The C&A Segment is targeting the rapidly-growing consumer wireless headset market with our SmartBeat(TM) wireless audio IC. This technology enables a new immersive headset experience and supports both wired USB 3.0 Type-C(TM) and Bluetooth(R) based consumer headsets. Our product portfolio targeting the headset market also includes a family of highly- integrated audio codec chips that deliver best-in-class active noise cancellation, providing optimal audio performance in any environment.
