“We are pleased to have made measurable progress stabilizing the business by reducing operating expenses and establishing a strong financial foundation, positioning Semtech to capture future growth opportunities, and we will continue to maintain that rigor going forward,” said Ye Jane Li, Chair of the company’s Board’s Nominating and Governance Committee.

CAMARILLO, Calif. (BUSINESS WIRE), June 2024: Semtech Corporation (“Semtech” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: SMTC), a high-performance semiconductor, IoT systems, and connectivity service provider, today announced the appointment of Dr. Hong Q. Hou, a current member of the Semtech Board of Directors, as President and Chief Executive Officer, effective June 6, 2024. Dr. Hou’s appointment follows Paul H. Pickle’s departure as President and Chief Executive Officer.

“We are pleased to have made measurable progress stabilizing the business by reducing operating expenses and establishing a strong financial foundation, positioning Semtech to capture future growth opportunities, and we will continue to maintain that rigor going forward,” said Ye Jane Li, Chair of the Semtech Board’s Nominating and Governance Committee. “Hong is an exceptional leader, and the Board is excited to have him execute the company’s strategy and take Semtech to its next phase of innovation and growth. Hong brings deep technical, operational, and strategic leadership in the hyperscale and semiconductor industries and is already intimately familiar with Semtech’s business.”

“I joined Semtech not only because of my experience with and passion for the industry, but also because of this company’s unique opportunity to leverage its strong team and formidable portfolio of highly innovative technologies and products in supporting the AI and IoT revolutions currently underway,” said Dr. Hou. “I am acutely focused on maintaining our financial discipline while we position Semtech to capitalize on the compelling technological trends ahead. I am confident in our goals to generate strong and sustained value for our stockholders long into the future.”

The company also reaffirmed its second-quarter fiscal year 2025 guidance provided on June 5, 2024. Mr. Pickle’s departure is unrelated to Semtech’s operational or financial performance, did not involve a violation of the company’s code of conduct, and does not have an impact on any previously reported financial statements. The Board’s decision resulted from differences between the Board and Mr. Pickle on how the CEO and the Board should work together in the best interests of stockholders.
