Skyworks ranked 15th in Boston Globe’s list of Massachusetts public companies

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA, which manufactures linear products, power amplifiers, front-end modules and radio solutions for handset and infrastructure equipment, has ranked 15th in the Boston Globe’s annual list of top-performing public companies based in Massachusetts.

Now in its 21st year, the Globe 100 ranks Massachusetts-based public companies whose stock is publicly traded on the Nasdaq, New York Stock Exchange, or American Stock Exchange equity markets, based on financial data from the four quarters ending nearest to 31 December 2008.

To be eligible, a company must be traded publicly for the whole of 2008 on the New York Stock Exchange, the Nasdaq or the American Stock Exchange, and have reported a positive net income for both 2007 and 2008. Companies are ranked on four criteria: return on average equity, one-year percentage change in revenue, one-year percentage change in profit margin, and 2008 revenue.

“These companies represent the resiliency of Massachusetts business, navigating difficult waters and surviving the ebbs and flows of an unstable economy and stock market,” says Shirley Leung, business editor of the Boston Globe.

“Our strong financial performance is a reflection of our talented workforce whose hard work and dedication are driving Skyworks to be a uniquely diversified analog semiconductor company,” adds president & CEO David J. Aldrich.
