Booming mobile market strengthens ARM revenues

Profit is up 32 percent.

By Alexander Sword

ARM Holdings has ended H1 2015 with Q2 revenue of £228.5 million, a year-on-year rise of 15 percent.

The Cambridge-based micro-electronics manufacturer saw pre-tax profit for the quarter rise 32 percent from 2014, reaching £123.9 million.

This puts revenue for the half-year at £456 million, up 22 percent from last year’s figure of £373.7 million. Profit before tax was £244.4 million, a 28 percent rise.

The quarter saw the company ship 3.4 billion ARM processor-based chips, up 26 percent year-on-year. In addition, growth in the number of ARM-based chips shipped into embedded applications continued, rising 60 percent year-on-year.

ARM said in a statement that Group dollar revenues for full-year 2015 would be in line with current market expectations, with a small sequential increase in industry revenues.

Simon Segars, Chief Executive Officer, said: "Q2 2015 has been a strong quarter for ARM with a highly diverse range of leading companies choosing to license ARM’s latest processors and physical IP for their future product developments.

"ARM has been investing in advanced technology products for mobile devices, automotive applications and enterprise infrastructure, and in Q2 ARM signed licences for many of these new products. This licensing activity will help to grow the royalty revenue opportunity for years to come."
