Company Update

LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / March 3, 2021 / Dialog Semiconductor Plc (XETRA:DLG), a provider of highly integrated power and battery management, Configurable Mixed-signal IC, AC/DC, solid state lighting and Bluetooth(R) low energy wireless technology, and industrial edge computing solutions, today updates on changes to its organisation and segment information.

Organisational changes
The Group's organisation has been updated to reflect our growth strategy and the expansion of our business into the industrial end market. We acquired Creative Chips GmbH during Q4 2019 and designated it as our Industrial Mixed Signal business unit within our Custom Mixed Signal reporting segment. We acquired Adesto Technologies Corporation during Q3 2020 and initially reported its results as a separate operating segment. During Q4 2020, we brought these two businesses together to form a single reporting segment that we have named Industrial IoT. The following table summarises the segment changes:

Previous Reporting Segments Changes (+/-) New Reporting Segments
Custom Mixed Signal - Industrial Mixed Signal (Creative Chips) Custom Mixed Signal (CMS)
Advanced Mixed Signal   Advanced Mixed Signal (AMS)
Connectivity and Audio   Connectivity and Audio (C&A)
Adesto + Industrial Mixed Signal (Creative Chips) Industrial IoT (IIoT)

Restated segment information
Management uses underlying measures as the principal basis for allocating resources to and assessing the financial performance of the Group's businesses. Underlying revenue is therefore the measure of segment revenue and underlying operating profit or loss the measure of segment profit or loss that is presented in the Group's segment disclosures.

Segment information for 2019 and for Q1/Q2/Q3 2020 restated to reflect these organisational changes is shown in Table 1 and Table 2 on page 2 of this Press Release and is available on our website in pdf and excel format:


The Group's results for 2019 and for Q1/Q2/Q3 2020 remain unchanged.

Q4 and FY 2020 results, including segment information are presented in accordance with the new reporting structure.

Reconciliation of underlying measures to equivalent IFRS measures (unaudited)

Underlying performance measures exclude specific items of income or expense that are recognised in profit or loss reported in accordance with IFRS that we consider hinder comparison of the financial performance of our businesses from one period to another, with each other or with other similar businesses.

Except when presented as measures of segment revenue or segment profit or loss, underlying measures of performance are non-IFRS measures. Our use of non-IFRS measures is explained on pages 183 to 189 of our 2019 Annual Report and Accounts. Reconciliations of the Group's revenue and operating profit or loss reported in accordance with IFRS to the Group's revenue and operating profit or loss
on an underlying basis for each of the periods presented in the tables above were presented in our results announcements for the respective periods.
