Q2 gross margin of 40.5% and operating margin of 16.3% improved 550 and 1,120 basis points, respectively, and net income increased 357.2% to $412 million,” said Jean-Marc Chery, STMicroelectronics President & CEO.

First half net revenues increased 39.1% year-over-year, driven by growth in all product groups, except the RF Communications sub-group. Operating margin was 15.5% and net income $776 million.

Chery added, “ST’s third quarter outlook, at the mid-point, is for net revenues of $3.20 billion, increasing year-over-year and sequentially by 20.0% and 7.0%, respectively; gross margin is expected to be about 41.0%.”

ST’s net revenues totaled $2.99 billion, a year-over-year increase of 43.4%.

The company’s gross profit totaled $1.21 billion, a year-over-year increase of 66.1%.

“We will now drive the Company based on a plan for FY21 revenues of $12.5 billion, plus or minus $100 million, a year-over-year increase of 22.3% at the mid-point. This growth is expected to be driven by strong dynamics in all the end markets we address and our engaged customer programs. Our CAPEX plan will now be about $2.1 billion for 2021,” said Chery.
