The Santa Rosa, CA-based electronic design company is expected to have recorded year-over-year higher revenues due to increased sales from the Communications Solutions Group and Electronic Industrial Solutions Group.
Factors at Play
In the fiscal third quarter Keysight introduced the new PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) 2023, which is an integrated design and simulation software that rapidly is addressing the increasing design complexity along with higher frequencies in the radio frequency (RF) and microwave industry. This will comprise enhancements to electromagnetic (EM) simulation for circuit designers. The consensus estimate for revenues from Communications Solutions Group stands at $948 million, which implies an increase from $875 million reported a year ago.
In the fiscal third quarter, the company announced that Scania, part of Volkswagen Group, chose Keysight’s Scienlab Battery Test Solutions to develop its new state-of-the art battery laboratory present at its research and development facilities in Sodertalje, Sweden. The consensus estimate for revenues from Electronic Industrial Solutions Group stands at $399 million, which implies an increase from $371 million reported a year ago.
For the July quarter, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for total revenues is pegged at $1,344 million, which indicates growth of 7.9% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. The consensus estimate for adjusted earnings per share stands at $1.79, suggesting an increase of 16.2% year over year.
