“We delivered an extremely strong quarter to close out the fiscal year and I am very proud of the progress the Wolfspeed team has made in delivering on our goals. We announced a number of exciting customer wins, opened the world’s first fully automated 200mm Silicon Carbide fab at Mohawk Valley, and made significant strides in growing our top-line, while also improving profitability,” said Wolfspeed Chief Executive Officer, Gregg Lowe. “Looking forward, we remain very encouraged about the industry’s prospects for future growth and the activity we are seeing across our end-markets. We had a phenomenal record of $2.6 billion of design-ins in the fourth quarter. This achievement, coupled with the previous two quarters of $1.6 billion each, provides further evidence of the upward pressure we are seeing on our 2026 revenue outlook, which we now believe is between 30 to 40 percent higher than the $2.1 billion we forecasted at the end of last year.”
