SAN DIEGO, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading developer and innovator of advanced wireless technologies, products and services, today announced results for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 ended March 31, 2013.

"We delivered another strong quarter as the worldwide adoption of smartphones continues," said Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, chairman and CEO of Qualcomm.  "Looking forward, we are seeing strong traction with our new Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and 800 processors, and we continue to expect healthy growth in 3G and 3G/4G multimode devices around the world.  We are pleased to be raising our calendar 2013 3G/4G device shipment estimates and our revenue and earnings guidance for fiscal 2013."

Second Quarter Results (GAAP)

  • Revenues: 1 $6.12 billion, up 24 percent year-over-year (y-o-y) and 2 percent sequentially.
  • Operating income: 1 $1.88 billion, up 24 percent y-o-y and down 10 percent sequentially.
  • Net income: 2 $1.87 billion, down 16 percent y-o-y* and 2 percent sequentially.

* The second quarter of fiscal 2012 GAAP results included $761 million, net of income taxes, or $0.44 per share, for discontinued operations as a result of a $1.2 billion pre-tax gain associated with the sale of substantially all of our 700 MHz spectrum.

1 Throughout this news release, fiscal 2012 results for FLO TV are presented as discontinued operations. Revenues, operating expenses, operating income, earnings before tax (EBT) and effective tax rates are from continuing operations (i.e., before adjustments for noncontrolling interests and, for fiscal 2012, discontinued operations), unless otherwise stated.

2 Throughout this news release, net income and diluted earnings per share are attributable to Qualcomm (i.e., after adjustments for noncontrolling interests and discontinued operations), unless otherwise stated.

Non-GAAP Second Quarter Results

Non-GAAP results exclude the QSI segment and certain share-based compensation, acquisition-related items and tax items. 

  • Revenues:  $6.12 billion, up 24 percent y-o-y and 2 percent sequentially.
  • Operating income:  $2.23 billion, up 18 percent y-o-y and down 9 percent sequentially.

Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased 14 percent y-o-y primarily due to increases in employee-related expenses, patent-related expenses and selling and marketing expenses.    

Effective Income Tax Rates

Our fiscal 2013 annual effective income tax rates are estimated to be approximately 16 percent for GAAP and approximately 17 to 18 percent for Non-GAAP.  The second quarter effective income tax rates were 13 percent for GAAP and 16 percent for Non-GAAP, which are lower than the estimated annual effective tax rates primarily as a result of the retroactive reinstatement of the federal R&D tax credit during the second quarter.  The federal R&D tax credit benefit that related to fiscal 2012 of $0.04 per share was excluded from Non-GAAP results.   

QSI Segment

QSI makes strategic investments, many of which are in early-stage companies, and holds wireless spectrum.  GAAP results for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 included $0.02 earnings per share for QSI.

Business Outlook

The following statements are forward looking, and actual results may differ materially.  The "Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" in this news release provides a description of certain risks that we face, and our annual and quarterly reports on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) provide a more complete description of risks. 

Our outlook does not include provisions for future asset impairments or for pending legal matters, other than future legal amounts that are probable and estimable.  Further, due to their nature, certain income and expense items, such as realized investment and certain derivative gains or losses, cannot be accurately forecast.  Accordingly, we only include such items in our business outlook to the extent they are reasonably certain; however, actual results may vary materially from the business outlook.

The following table summarizes GAAP and Non-GAAP guidance based on the current business outlook.  The Non-GAAP business outlook presented below is consistent with the presentation of Non-GAAP results included elsewhere herein.

Total reported device sales is the sum of all reported sales in U.S. dollars (as reported to us by our licensees) of all licensed CDMA-based, OFDMA-based and CDMA/OFDMA multimode subscriber devices (including handsets, modules, modem cards and other subscriber devices) by our licensees during a particular period (collectively, 3G/4G devices).  The reported quarterly estimated ranges of average selling prices (ASPs) and unit shipments are determined based on the information as reported to us by our licensees during the relevant period and our own estimates of the selling prices and unit shipments for licensees that do not provide such information.  Not all licensees report sales, selling prices and/or unit shipments the same way (e.g., some licensees report selling prices net of permitted deductions, such as transportation, insurance and packing costs, while other licensees report selling prices and then identify the amount of permitted deductions in their reports), and the way in which licensees report such information may change from time to time.  Total reported device sales, estimated unit shipments and estimated ASPs for a particular period may include prior period activity that was not reported by the licensee until such particular period.

(2)

FY 2012 results for QSI and GAAP included $0.44 EPS related to a $1.2 billion gain associated with the sale of substantially all of our 700 MHz spectrum, which was recognized in discontinued operations and was excluded from Non-GAAP results.

(3)

FY 2013 guidance for tax items includes $0.04 EPS related to a tax benefit that resulted from the retroactive reinstatement of the federal R&D tax credit related to fiscal 2012, which was excluded from Non-GAAP results.

(4)

The midpoints of the estimated calendar year ranges are identified for comparison purposes only and do not indicate a higher degree of confidence in the midpoints.

Sums may not equal totals due to rounding.

Non-GAAP reconciling items related to revenues consist primarily of nonreportable segment revenues less intersegment eliminations.  Non-GAAP reconciling items related to earnings before taxes consist primarily of certain costs of equipment and services revenues, research and development expenses, sales and marketing expenses, other operating expenses and certain investment income or losses and interest expense that are not allocated to the segments for management reporting purposes; nonreportable segment results; and the elimination of intersegment profit.

(2)

At fiscal year end, the sum of the quarterly tax provision (benefit) for each column equals the annual tax provision (benefit) for each column computed in accordance with GAAP.  In interim quarters, the sum of these provisions (benefits) may not equal the total GAAP tax provision, and this difference is allocated to tax provisions (benefits) among the columns.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Non-GAAP financial information presented herein should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.  In addition, "Non-GAAP" is not a term defined by GAAP, and as a result, the Company's measure of Non-GAAP results might be different than similarly titled measures used by other companies.  Reconciliations between GAAP and Non-GAAP results are presented herein.

The Company uses Non-GAAP financial information (i) to evaluate, assess and benchmark the Company's operating results on a consistent and comparable basis; (ii) to measure the performance and efficiency of the Company's ongoing core operating businesses, including the QCT, QTL and QWI segments; and (iii) to compare the performance and efficiency of these segments against each other and against competitors.  Non-GAAP measurements of the following financial data are used by the Company:  revenues, cost of revenues, R&D expenses, SG&A expenses, other operating expenses, operating income (loss), net investment income (loss), income (loss) before income taxes, effective tax rate, net income (loss), diluted earnings (loss) per share, operating cash flow and free cash flow.  The Company is able to assess what it believes is a more meaningful and comparable set of financial performance measures for the Company and its business segments by using Non-GAAP information.  As a result, management compensation decisions and the review of executive compensation by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors focus primarily on Non-GAAP financial measures applicable to the Company and its business segments.  The Company presents Non-GAAP financial information to provide greater transparency to investors with respect to its use of such information in financial and operational decision-making.

Non-GAAP information used by management excludes QSI and certain share-based compensation, acquisition-related items and tax items. 

  • QSI is excluded because the Company expects to exit its strategic investments at various times, and the effects of fluctuations in the value of such investments and realized gains or losses are viewed by management as unrelated to the Company's operational performance. 
  • Share-based compensation expense primarily relates to restricted stock units and stock options.  Certain share-based compensation is excluded because management views such expenses as unrelated to the operating activities of the Company's ongoing core businesses.  Further, the fair values of share-based awards are affected by factors that are variable on each grant date, which may include the Company's stock price, stock market volatility, expected award life, risk-free interest rates and expected dividend payouts in future years. 
  • Acquisition-related items relate to amortization and impairment charges of certain intangible assets, recognition of the step-up of inventories to fair value and the related tax effects of these items starting with acquisitions completed in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, as well as any tax effects from restructuring the ownership of such acquired assets.  Additionally, starting with acquisitions completed in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company began excluding expenses related to the termination of contracts that limit the use of the acquired intellectual property.  These acquisition-related items are excluded and are not allocated to the Company's segments because management views such expenses as unrelated to the operating activities of the Company's ongoing core businesses.  In addition, these charges are impacted by the size and timing of acquisitions, potentially obscuring period to period comparisons of the Company's operating businesses.  
  • Certain tax items that were recorded in each fiscal year presented, but that were unrelated to the fiscal year in which they were recorded, are excluded in order to provide a clearer understanding of the Company's ongoing Non-GAAP tax rate and after tax earnings. 

The Company presents free cash flow, defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, to facilitate an understanding of the amount of cash flow generated that is available to grow its business and to create long-term stockholder value.  In addition, management uses this measure to evaluate the Company's performance and to compare its operating performance with other companies in the industry.
