Infineon Clocks 38% Revenue Growth In Q3; Forges EV Chip Supply Deal With Stellantis

  • Infineon Technologies AG IFNNY IFNNF reported fourth-quarter revenue growth of 38% year-on-year to €4.14 billion. Adjusted EPS was €0.63.
  • The adjusted gross margin expanded by 240 bps to 46.3%.

  • Infineon proposed a quarterly dividend growth of 18.5% Y/Y to €0.32.
  • Infineon's supervisory board approved further planning for constructing a new factory for 300-millimeter analog and mixed-signal and power semiconductors for about €5 billion with a planned location in Dresden (Germany).
  • When operating at total capacity, the planned factory would have the potential to generate annual revenue equal to the level of the investment. 
  • The new factory will likely create up to 1,000 new highly qualified jobs and could be ready to start production in the autumn of 2026.
  • Infineon and the global automaker Stellantis N.V. STLA agreed to the first step towards potential multi-year supply cooperation for silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductors. 
  • Infineon would reserve manufacturing capacity and supply CoolSiC "bare die" chips in the second half of the decade to the direct Tier 1 suppliers of Stellantis. 
  • The potential sourcing volume and capacity reservation has a value of more than €1 billion.
  • Infineon and Stellantis discussed delivering the CoolSiC Gen2p 1200 V and CoolSiC Gen2p 750 V-chips for electric vehicles under the Stellantis brands.
  • In 2024, Infineon's new fab for SiC technologies will start manufacturing in Kulim, Malaysia. It will complement existing manufacturing capacities in Villach, Austria, following Infineon's multi-site strategy.
  • Price Action: IFNNY shares traded higher by 5.97% at $32.48 on the last check Monday.
