Independence Pays off; Nexperia Achieves Outstanding Results

Over 35% revenue growth in first two years and capacity increase to
100 billion parts annually.

NIJMEGEN, The Netherlands–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nexperia,
the global leader in discretes, logic and MOSFET devices, today
announced that in just two years as a standalone company, it is
significantly out-performing the market, achieving growth figures of
over 35%, introducing more new products and expanding its annual
manufacturing capacity to more than 100 billion parts. Increased
investment has led to an increase in market share as the company has
been able to fulfill customer demand.

In its two years as an independent company, Nexperia also launched over
1500 products. These new discretes, logic and MOSFET parts were
successfully introduced in the market, and the company is winning new
business with leading companies in existing and new market sectors.
Comments CEO Frans Scheper: “We are proud of our history, which goes
back very nearly 100 years to well-known names such as Philips and NXP,
but now as a stand-alone company we can pursue our own strategy and
goals and achieve even more. As a result, we are on a fast track to
become a 2 BUSD player by 2021”.

Over the last 18 months, the industry has generally experienced
shortages. To counter this, Nexperia has significantly expanded capacity
at its Guangdong, China, facility and strongly increased wafer output at
its front end fabs in Hamburg and Manchester. Frans Scheper: “We have
been able to grow our market share because we invested at the right time
in new facilities”, he explains, “growing output by almost 20% in the
last two years”. Importantly, the majority of Nexperia’s products are
manufactured to exceed the demands of the automotive standard,

One of Nexperia’s primary markets is Automotive, and the company has
fully committed to a program of increasing its already-burgeoning
portfolio of fully-qualified parts for this demanding sector. It is also
well-positioned in the consumer, communications and industrial markets.
As a technology leader, this year Nexperia is entering the GaN market
with compelling new products.

Distribution also plays a highly-strategic role in the way Nexperia
serves its clients, reaching a record 1 BUSD resales milestone in 2018.
Global partners including Future, Avnet, WPI and Arrow are a vital part
of the Nexperia team.

“We congratulate Frans and the entire Nexperia team for this remarkable
accomplishment”, said Robert Miller, Future Electronics’ CEO. “Future
Electronics has been part of the Nexperia extended family for over 20
years. We value and appreciate the strong relationships we have
developed with Frans and the team and wish our friends at Nexperia
continued success.”

Avnet CEO, Bill Amelio added: “For 50 years, Avnet and Nexperia have met
the changing needs of customers – with Nexperia’s full product portfolio
of leading edge discretes, logic and MOSFET devices and with Avnet’s
unique end-to-end ecosystem. We congratulate Nexperia on this milestone
and look forward to continuing to serve the industry together.”

WPI’s CEO, Mike Chang commented: “Congratulations to Nexperia’s
breakthrough of 1 BUSD POS in 2018. As the biggest distributor for this
esteemed company, WPI has been successfully working with Nexperia in
serving the greater China market and achieving double digit growth for
years. WPI is proud and willing to keep co-working with Nexperia to
develop more business, especially in the Automotive and Industrial
market segments.”

Concludes Frans Scheper: “In this ever-connected world, Nexperia is
working worldwide with leading companies, delivering products that
enable those ground-breaking ICs to function in real applications.
Building on our strong foundations we are now able to take our place as
an independent company, delivering parts that compete with the very best
in terms of quality and efficiency.”
