On the Call: Qualcomm exec Steven Mollenkopf

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ? Qualcomm Inc., a maker of chips for mobile phones, on Wednesday reported stronger-than-expected quarterly results that the company attributed in part to rising demand from emerging markets.

On a conference call with analysts following the earnings report, Steven Mollenkopf, an executive vice president at Qualcomm, discussed the company’s prospects for emerging markets.

Question: Can you comment about your market share prospects in China and India?

Answer (Mollenkopf): “I can maybe say a few things about share. We feel we’re well positioned actually in the emerging markets. It’s been an area of strength for us for some time. The initial products we’ve been launching in the last few years have been successful worldwide.”
