Infineon Technologies achieved revenues of Euro 3.951 billion in the first quarter of the 2023 financial year, with a segment result of Euro 1.107 billion. The company is raising its fiscal year forecast slightly due to currency effects.
»Infineon is staying on course in choppy waters, and the first quarter of our 2023 fiscal year has been very profitable. Substantial parts of our business have proved robust even in a weaker macroeconomic environment,« says Jochen Hanebeck, CEO of Infineon. »In particular, the energy transition and expansion of electromobility are causing a continuously high need for our solutions in industrial and automotive applications. In contrast, we are seeing significantly weaker demand in areas such as smartphones, PCs and data centers. We are continuing to navigate carefully in these challenging times and remain flexible in our approach to market dynamics. All in all, we are increasing our guidance slightly for the fiscal year, adjusting for currency effects.«
