The company witnessed revenue figures of $6 billion that misses the Zacks Consensus Estimate, which is $6.106 billion, but there has been a year-over-year gain of 4%.
The company also reported that MSM (mobile station modem) chip shipments that include the Snapdragon LTE modem totaled to 217 million. The sales totaled to $62.9 million that is considerably lower than the $68.6 million that was forecasted by the analysis.
In the Q2 fiscal 2017, Qualcomm expects to witness a fall in the revenues in the range of $5.5 billion and $6.3 billion. This represents a drop of 1% to an increase of 13%. It also expects the non-GAAP diluted EPS to fall in the range of $1.15 and $1.25, which is an increase of 11% to 20%.
Steve Mollenkopf, the CEO of Qualcomm Incorporated stated, "Looking ahead, the pending NXP acquisition accelerates our strategic transformation in the high growth areas of automotive, IoT, security and networking. We are very well positioned to lead as the semiconductor engine for the intelligent, connected world."
As we know, Apple filed a lawsuit recently on Qualcomm regarding the payment of $1 billion that it was charged, Mollenkopf said that the company will defend its business vigorously and handle the legal troubles that the company is facing currently.
