Lam Research Corp. reported higher December-quarter profit and revenue and company officials said supply-chain conditions worsened in late December.

Second-quarter profit rose to $1.19 billion from $869.2 million a year earlier. On a per-share basis, the profit was $8.44, or $8.53 as adjusted.

Revenue for the quarter ended Dec. 26 rose to $4.23 billion from $3.46 billion a year earlier.

Analysts surveyed by FactSet had projected $8.43 a share in profit, or $8.52 a share as adjusted, on $4.41 billion in revenue.

"Lam delivered record calendar year 2021 financial performance within a robust wafer fabrication spending environment" Chief Executive Tim Archer said in a statement, adding: "While supply chain conditions worsened in late December and are causing near-term impacts to our results, we expect wafer fabrication equipment investments to again increase in calendar year 2022, leading to another strong growth year for Lam."
