Regarding Coronavirus
The ADI Family of Companies is closely monitoring the evolution of the Coronavirus situation in China and the decisions national and local governments make relating to shutdowns of industrial production in the country. With regards to the business impact , the Chinese government continues to delay the resumption of work in many provinces and cities. While we expect that any extended closures could result in shipping delays of components manufactured in China we have yet to be notified of any specific delays.  The ADI Family of Companies is constantly evaluating this situation and will provide updates to our valued customers of additional developments.
