“For more than half a century, we have stayed true to our ethos of solving our customers’ critical and complex problems, while building the most durable and premier analog, mixed signal, and power franchise. We have a tremendous opportunity ahead of us as we execute our long-term vision to build and empower the intelligent edge by bringing digital technologies and software closer to the edge, making it more intelligent and prescient,” said Vincent Roche, Chief Executive Officer and Chair of ADI. “As we move up the technology stack, capture opportunity presented by key secular trends and deepen customer relationships through innovation, we have great confidence we will achieve our increased annual revenue growth target of 7% to 10%. While we deliver sustainable growth, we see a path to $15 of adjusted earnings per share and 40% free cash flow margin, enabling us to create significant value for shareholders for years to come.”
