Let’s see how things have shaped up for the upcoming announcement:
Factors to Consider
Amphenol’s diversified business model lowers the volatility of individual-end markets and geographies. Contributions from acquisitions of Unlimited Services, Euromicron, Cabelcon, MTS Systems, Onanon, Cablescan, XGiga and EXA Thermometrics are expected to have aided fourth-quarter results.
Military market sales are expected to have increased sequentially due to the addition of MTS sensors to the product offering, as well as strong demand for interconnect and sensor products. Accelerating adoption of electronics in defense equipment systems and the overall favorable defense spending environment are trends that have been benefiting Amphenol in the past few quarters. These are expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter.
The Aerospace end market is expected to have witnessed mid-teens increase in sales on a sequential basis (down roughly 10% year over year) in the reported quarter.
Addition of MTS sensors like position, vibration, force and shock in the portfolio is expected to have increased industrial end-market sales. The acquisition of Unlimited Services has further strengthened Amphenol’s position in this market.
However, industrial end-market sales are expected to have witnessed moderate growth sequentially in the to-be-reported quarter. In the third quarter, industrial market represented 26% of Amphenol’s sales and jumped 44% year over year.
Strong mobile network sales, driven by investments in next-generation mobile networks and the acquisition of Euromicron, are expected to have benefited Amphenol’s fourth-quarter results.
Information Technology and Data Communications sales are expected to have benefited from increased demand for Amphenol’s solutions required to accelerate bandwidth capacity expansions in order to support ongoing work-from-home and online-learning waves.
Amphenol’s fourth-quarter 2021 top line is expected to have suffered from supply chain disruptions in the improved automotive end-market.
