(-) NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) was nearly 3% lower after the chipmaker reported preliminary Q1 revenue trailing its internal forecast, falling to $2.02 billion during the three months ended March 31 from $2.09 billion during the same quarter last year but still matching the Capital IQ consensus expecting $2.02 billion. The company also said it decided not to ship roughly $150 million of orders to distribution partners in order to maintain a normal channel inventory.

(-) SeaChange International (SEAC) dropped almost 28% after the digital advertising platform reported non-GAAP Q4 income of $0.13 per share, reversing a $0.03 per share net loss during the year-ago period but still trailing the two-analyst consensus call expecting a $0.19 per share adjusted profit.
