Kurt Sievers

hi. Yes, CJ. Good morning,

mentioned the thanks it's eCockpit, surpass XXXX. in electrification, in this from really the volumes are that have the prepared year pace year, this while the SAR we a accelerating that discussed point that then content growth broad look market content to convinced xEVs. and to clearly peak, a zonal NXP. more is clearly XX%, market. from to I I'd consensus probably especially is way there levels like gains, going The my a little, grow general pre-pandemic a maybe at to drives are in away the only We content the XX% absolute auto latest around are is specific far in that accelerated and management really, for remarks, around from IHS, end and the especially another grow next we've going our to that's perspective, gains, data from many will it the actually strength the say we But gains times and And importantly, company-specific past, as of battery in CJ, radar, few processes year

had faster anticipated. see of than of So as is the growing anybody car number a the we do that xEVs production portion total

further I'm was XX% production strong a then It's it the this total growing driver So compared market. auto the like and year for significantly from traditional quoting latest higher more fast content Since here, see, of like think engine next for car the combustion have xEVs quarter last be data to vehicles, to dedicated going year we again, silicon there another onwards. I IHS a is xEVs.

of a the far very trust to that with wants needs, a shipments out. peak. trying in finally, of their day wants from serving customers pressing that. And fulfill really to both daily away the So contact day can which companies on X us, know sure because the tactically, companies the CEOs hear car and everybody in speak I'm most level make are and car we about daily Tier handholding mean, me, the I to themselves, I

Stacy Ragson

you. Thank it. Got

about For I the want ask returns. my follow-up, to cash

a So stock. you've back lot bought of

I buyback. think as of March, you upped the

something had $X.X and like in like $X.X billion You right authorization through billion now. you're

but you're still down. whole guiding share counts almost you're So through the authorization,

expect we have that you're confidence do shows even through stock so buyback that you're should the Are I guess, it the date? the what even now? next I return long since more the exists, to the mostly buyback So rest right year? you XXX% just bit that seems you I talking return expect going about this like a back strength And of we you're it suggests? year. I as than why suppose to more it But guess, guess, the more? And I about picture, growth guess, reinforces in talk cash buying year much as little go -- through we of given can you it

Peter Kelly

I'll maybe take -- So that, Kurt.

terms to of of question answer going. a where is there company in your So I guess, or the is, confidence lot we the have second third

moment good think buying we our a at clearly, So the is stock investment.

simple. our In terms quite much, it along, really We've XX level. months said net at how times of all we'll X is EBITDA debt trailing keep to

debt. this result do for future. that We're So that's that in that and what net us back the all level more than results buy year, And to X just be But times -- to XXX% if it's in us we'll that the is. results we'd pretty buying foreseeable mathematical. honest, returning continue the to at if time, staying

element play. solutions software track, Yes. and do This that it's mobile everybody complete about for Happy remind ecosystem this product, because the so, just radio, to to nicely offer IoT. not indeed, we secure across really just it's and There Will. a on is automotive, the

those with $XXX much we what million on segments some across Will, very $XXX to track, I are 'XX. to said the Teach-In We at revenue have million in think

two from only years in So now.

As happening actually we of is speak. today, I'd say, as mobile

think as is I'd because have a about to world, you happening. the is using all place just companies, we in use needs your the working car phones to phone mobile If of closely. say, the firstly, case Android and a closely with mobile the Android major key following, now function obviously be this Automotive that of now very are was automotive

market with to is company the in a in certainty out on ultra say is be an car second high next dare implementation of and NXP. will year. working degree any relatively and there, And cars working first the which So I'd this with the half wideband of that year in

here. positively exposed and are very we So highly

Finally, we also IoT see first with a good implementations. traction

examples lost. we for for those the help wins There door techs of it. stuff, your properties, which phone nice early -- front home to it One But locks unlock door see you have and you also would which you also use in to then are open example. find mobile your might design

think years the next had this revenue now, and XX% million to from in some So is Again, million the growing market numbers size over $XXX we we Will. were couple very of given much for track, $XXX which two at for the NXP on years.
