Nexperia announces 2023 financial results

Strategic investments and ongoing progress pave the way for future growth

Nexperia announced its financial results for 2023, including strong growth in its key market segment automotive as well as increased R&D investments. With a total revenue of US$2.15bn, (US$2.36bn in 2022) Nexperia’s financial performance also reflects a challenging year for the semiconductor industry. Despite the slight decline in revenue and weak market demand, the product revenue in the traditionally strong automotive segment grew significantly.

In 2023, Nexperia had, in many ways, a strong focus on the green energy transition. For one, the company solidified its dedication to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles with the release of its inaugural ESG report. Another milestone was that Nexperia secured its first $800 million Senior Sustainability-Linked Loan (SLL), directly supporting its aim of achieving carbon neutrality by 2035 for scope 1 and 2 emissions. Additionally, in April 2024, Nexperia was awarded a Gold Medal by EcoVadis, placing it in the top 5% of assessed companies within its industry, reaffirming its commitment to driving positive industry change.

Moreover, the introduction of industry-leading wide-bandgap semiconductors, energy harvesting devices, and the continuous investments in its power semiconductors, ensure improved efficiency of technologies that shape a greener future. The longer-term outlook remains strongly positive given the essential role of semiconductors in the global megatrends of electrification, digitalization, automation, and green energy transition. Despite facing cyclical effects, Nexperia remains steadfast in its commitment to innovation, leveraging its 70-year semiconductor heritage.

“2023 marked a significant investment year for Nexperia, towards upgrading and expanding our product portfolio in Power Discretes, Modules, Analog & Power ICs. This investment represents 13% of our revenue, aligning us with industry standards and emphasizes our commitment to long term growth. Looking ahead to 2024, while uncertainties persist in Europe and North America, we are encouraged by increasing demand levels in Asia. Despite market fluctuations, we remain dedicated to delivering value to our stakeholders.” – Stefan Tilger, CFO, Nexperia.

“TeamNexperia has shown remarkable resilience in navigating the challenges of the past year, reaffirming the underlying strength and progress of our company. Despite the challenges, we remain committed to investment and innovation, laying the groundwork for a promising future. Together, we are poised to seize the vast opportunities ahead” – Wing Zhang, CEO, Nexperia.
