Jul.30 -- Jalal Bagherli, chief executive officer at Dialog Semiconductor, discusses second-quarter results, new growth opportunities, and the company’s relationship with Huawei Technologies Co. He speaks with Bloomberg's Guy Johnson on "Bloomberg Markets."
Anglo-German chip designer Dialog Semiconductor is buying California-based Adesto Technologies for $500 million (£418 million) to diversify further away from its reliance Apple , it said on Thursday. Dialog, which specialises in power-management chips and low-energy Bluetooth products used in fitness trackers and cordless earphones, will pay $12.55 per share in a cash deal representing a 57% premium to Adesto's closing price on Wednesday. For Chief Executive Jalal Bagherli, the deal marks another step towards de-risking Dialog after it struck a $600 million deal with Apple in 2018 to hand over people and patents behind the main integrated power-management circuits in the iPhone.
The dollar gained while some U.S. and European equity indexes scaled fresh peaks on Wednesday after China reported another decline in new coronavirus cases and on expectations of Chinese stimulus to counter a slowdown in growth. China is widely expected to cut its benchmark lending rate on Thursday, according to a survey of traders and analysts, after the country's central bank lowered the interest rate on medium-term loans earlier this week. The death toll from the coronavirus climbed above 2,000, but the number of newly reported cases fell for a second day to the lowest since January.

(Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. bagged a significant smartphone shipment jump in China last month as the world’s largest consumer electronics market heads into its holiday season, official data indicate.The iPhone maker’s shipments in China grew 18.7% year on year in December to roughly 3.18 million units, according to Bloomberg calculations based on government data on overall and Android device shipments. The increase marked an acceleration from the prior months, which were buoyed by the iPhone 11’s release in September. The numbers come from the China Academy of Information and Communication Technology, a government think tank.Shares in Apple suppliers AMS AG, Infineon Technologies AG, STMicroelectronics NV and Dialog Semiconductor Plc climbed in early European trade, buoyed by an overall tech-sector rally. The improvement in December iPhone sales in China despite a lack of 5G readiness was “quite positive” for Apple and its suppliers, analysts at Oddo wrote in a note Thursday.Read more: Tech Stocks Reclaim June 2001 Highs as Apple Suppliers RallyApple made major strides in increasing battery life in its iPhone 11 and 11 Pro devices while lowering the starting price by $50. After years of stagnation in cameras, the company also overhauled the iPhone’s image quality in 2019, catching up to category leaders Google and Huawei Technologies Co. This approach drew an overwhelmingly positive reception from critics.The latest data affirms expectations that the iPhone 11 is selling more strongly than its predecessor, particularly in a market that’s second only to the U.S. in its importance to Apple’s bottom line. The surge in shipments gives reason for optimism around Apple’s smartphone sales in the buildup to the Chinese New Year, which falls in late January. China’s overall smartphone shipments in December fell short of 30 million units, a 13.7% decrease compared to the same period in 2018, according to CAICT.Still, the Cupertino, California-based company is fighting an uphill battle against a group of local vendors led by Huawei, which gained a dominant position in 2019 despite facing sanctions and struggles abroad. As the year progresses, Apple’s lack of 5G-enabled devices and inability to get its full range of online services past Chinese censors will make sustaining this initial shipment improvement an uncertain task.(Updates with shares from the third paragraph)To contact Bloomberg News staff for this story: Gao Yuan in Beijing at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Edwin Chan at firstname.lastname@example.org, Vlad Savov, Colum MurphyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Apple Inc.’s suppliers have walked a tightrope for a long time.They try very hard to get their products into the iPhone because it can mean a massive increase in sales. But they must proceed with care, as doing so risks yoking their business to the whims of the Silicon Valley giant’s famously capricious supply chain operations. When iPhone sales stutter, Apple reacts by trying to squeeze even lower prices out of suppliers. Worse, it starts to make the components itself.That’s why it looked like horrible news for Dialog Semiconductor Plc when it became clear two years ago that Apple was going to produce its own power-management chips (which regulate how energy is distributed around a device) for its iPhone, rather than buying them from the British tech company. But Dialog has managed the transition well. The stock has risen more than three-fold from a 2018 low.Adding to the ignominy at the time, Apple paid what looked like a bargain $300 million last October to take on 300 of Dialog’s engineers, and pledged a further $300 million to buy Dialog components over three years to help its transition out of the iPhone supplier stable. A year later, though, and the terms of that deal look like a canny piece of business for Dialog’s chief executive officer Jalal Bagherli.While Dialog would no doubt have preferred to retain the status quo, where 75% of its revenue came from Apple (almost all from iPhone components), that made it particularly vulnerable to being squeezed on prices.The share price recovery this year has only brought Dialog back to where it was before Apple’s decision to drop it as an iPhone supplier. But it secured three years of guaranteed revenue, without the cost of employing the engineers responsible for generating much of it (since they’ve now joined Apple).The British company is pivoting meanwhile to supply consumer and industrial products with a healthier growth trajectory than the iPhone, such as Apple’s AirPods and Macs. Yes, they’re still Apple products but there’s less pressure on supplier margins. Plus Dialog wants Apple to account for less than 40% of its revenue by 2022.This does all point too to a softening by Apple toward its suppliers, particularly those making components not easily found elsewhere. In July, Bloomberg News reported that it had pledged $100 million to keep afloat the troubled Japan Display Inc., a maker of iPhone screens. That followed an $850 million payment to Samsung Electronics Co. to make up for a shortfall in purchases of organic light-emitting diode displays.The driver of Apple’s changed behavior is surely the fierce competition in smartphones, where its market share has declined. The company’s ability to strong-arm suppliers into giving it better terms in return for stratospheric sales growth is therefore waning. If Apple’s going to retain access to cutting-edge components, suppliers must know they won’t be cut adrift.To contact the author of this story: Alex Webb at email@example.comTo contact the editor responsible for this story: James Boxell at firstname.lastname@example.orgThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Alex Webb is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering Europe's technology, media and communications industries.

The British chipmaker said revenue from sales of its power-management technology would fall "by single-digital percentage points." In October, Apple signed a $600 million deal with Dialog to license the U.K. chip designer’s power management technology and acquire certain assets, including more than 300 staff. The agreement with Apple came almost a year after Dialog warned investors that its major customer could start designing its own power-management chips. Dialog relies on Apple for about three-quarters of its revenue, predominantly through the supply of chips that handle charging and manage power in smartphones.
