Boston Globe lists Skyworks in Globe 100 for fourth consecutive year, ranking 8th again

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures high-reliability analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has been named to the Boston Globe’s list of top-performing public companies in Massachusetts for the fourth consecutive year. After falling from 15th for 2008 to 42nd for 2009, Skyworks has been ranked 8th for the second year in succession.

Now in its 24th year, the Globe 100 ranks Massachusetts-based public companies on four criteria (return on average equity, one-year percentage change in both revenue and profit margin, and 2011 revenue) based on financial data from the four quarters to end-December 2011. To be eligible, a firm must be traded publicly for the entire 2011 calendar year on the New York Stock Exchange, the Nasdaq or the American Stock Exchange and report revenue and profit for both 2010 and 2011. For the first time in three years, the Globe 100 list features 100 companies. In 2010 and 2011, less than 100 companies qualified, given the impact of the recession.

“The positive momentum we are seeing in the economic recovery is illustrated by the Globe 100 returning to full strength,” says Boston Globe business editor Shirley Leung. “It’s a powerful testament to the resiliency of Massachusetts’ businesses,” she adds.

“Skyworks is delighted to once again be recognized as one of Massachusetts’s most highly regarded and well performing companies,” says president & CEO David J. Aldrich. “In 2011, Skyworks made significant progress towards solidifying our leadership position in analog semiconductor solutions across a diverse set of applications,” he adds. “We are capitalizing on consumers’ demand for mobile connectivity and are well positioned to benefit from the explosive growth in wirelessly-enabled platforms and services.”
