Dialog Semiconductor shares fell by as much as 16% on Tuesday after an analyst warned that Apple may use fewer of the company's chips in the iPhone.
"We believe that Apple is setting up power-management design centers in Munich and California", said Iltgen. Karsten Iltgen, analyst for German bank Bankhaus Lampe, cut his rating on Dialog Semiconductor this Tuesday, sending the chip manufacturer's shares down the slope.
There has been a steady flow of engineers from Dialog to Apple over the past year, according to a person familiar with the situation who wasn't authorized to speak on the topic. 'They are poaching like insane, ' the person said.
"Dialog's chip has continued to help iPhone outperform high-end Android smartphones on power consumption and battery life", they added. A separate report from Barclays Research is less pessimistic about Dialog's prospects and claims that Apple is unlikely to fully cut off its relationship with the component maker.
In the event that Apple makes an indistinguishable choice with Dialog Semiconductor in the same way as with Imagination Technologies, the former organization could have as much as 75% of its business gone throughout the following couple of years, as it is trusted that Dialog receives almost 75 percent of its business deals from Apple.
Dialog Semiconductor and Apple were not immediately available for comment when contacted by CNBC. In-house designed Apple chips will also allow for quicker customization and deployment to future products of the company.
