TI reports 3Q13 financial results and shareholder returns

DALLAS, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today reported third-quarter revenue of $3.24 billion, net income of $629 million and earnings per share of 56 cents. 

Regarding the company's performance and returns to shareholders, Rich Templeton, TI's chairman, president and CEO, made the following comments:

  • "Our third-quarter performance reflects the positive structural changes we've made at TI over the past few years as we've focused on Analog and Embedded Processing.
  • "Our revenue in the quarter was up 6 percent sequentially. Excluding the legacy wireless products, revenue grew 10 percent sequentially. Our book-to-bill ratio was 0.97, consistent with an expected seasonal revenue decline in the fourth quarter.
  • "Analog and Embedded Processing are now 80 percent of TI's revenue, eight points higher than a year ago. The combined revenue from these two businesses grew 10 percent sequentially and 7 percent from a year ago. Our legacy wireless products declined to less than 2 percent of revenue.
  • "Earnings per share were higher than expected due to better revenue and gross profit, tight expense control and discrete tax items. Gross margin of 54.8 percent was an all-time high for TI, exceeding the prior record set in the third quarter of 2010, even though both revenue and factory utilization were lower. We believe this reflects the increased quality of revenue that comes from our focus on Analog and Embedded Processing and the efficiency of our manufacturing strategy.
  • "Our business model continues to generate strong cash flow from operations. Free cash flow for the trailing 12 months was almost $3 billion, up 4 percent compared with a year ago. Free cash flow was 24 percent of revenue, consistent with our target of 20-25 percent.
  • "We returned $1.0 billion to shareholders through dividends and stock repurchases in the third quarter. For the trailing 12 months, the return to shareholders totaled $3.8 billion or 133 percent of free cash flow. In the quarter, we announced a dividend increase, our second in 2013. In total, we have increased our dividend by 43 percent this year, resulting in an annualized rate of $1.20 per share. Our strategy to return to shareholders all of our free cash flow not needed for debt repayment reflects our confidence in the long-term sustainability of our Analog and Embedded Processing business model.
  • "Our balance sheet remains strong, with $3.6 billion of cash and short-term investments at the end of the quarter, 82 percent owned by the company's U.S. entities. Inventory days were 106, up from 101 a year ago, and consistent with our model of 105-115 days.
  • "At the mid-point of our fourth-quarter guidance range, revenue would decline 8 percent sequentially and be about even with the fourth quarter of 2012. Excluding legacy wireless revenue, which should decline to about $50 million in the fourth quarter, the mid-point of our outlook would deliver 8 percent growth from a year ago."

Free cash flow and revenue excluding legacy wireless are non-GAAP financial measures.  Free cash flow is Cash flow from operations less Capital expenditures.

Analog:  (includes High Volume Analog & Logic, Power Management, High Performance Analog and Silicon Valley Analog) 

  • Compared with a year ago, revenue increased primarily due to higher Silicon Valley Analog revenue. High Performance Analog and Power Management revenue also increased, while High Volume Analog & Logic revenue was about even.
  • Compared with the prior quarter, revenue grew due to higher revenue from all four product lines, with Power Management up the most.
  • Operating profit increased from a year ago due to higher gross profit. Compared with the prior quarter, operating profit increased due to higher revenue and associated gross profit.

Embedded Processing:  (includes Processors, Microcontrollers and Connectivity)

  • Compared with the year-ago quarter, the increase in revenue was due to growth in all three product lines.
  • Compared with the prior quarter, revenue increased primarily due to Processors. Revenue from Microcontrollers and Connectivity also increased.
  • Operating profit increased from a year ago due to higher revenue and associated gross profit, which was partially offset by higher operating expenses. Compared with the prior quarter, operating profit increased due to higher revenue and associated gross profit.

Other:  (includes DLP® products, custom ASIC products, calculators, royalties and legacy wireless products)

  • Compared with the year-ago quarter, revenue declined primarily due to lower revenue from legacy wireless products, and to a lesser extent, the nonrecurrence of business interruption insurance proceeds that were in the year-ago quarter. Revenue from DLP and custom ASIC products also declined, while revenue from calculators and royalties increased.
  • Compared with the prior quarter, revenue declined due to lower revenue from legacy wireless products. Revenue from calculators, custom ASIC products and royalties increased. Revenue from DLP products was about even.
  • Operating profit decreased from a year ago due to lower revenue and associated gross profit and higher Restructuring charges/other, which resulted from the nonrecurrence of a gain from a change in a Japan pension program in the year-ago quarter. These were partially offset by lower operating expenses resulting from the wind-down of the legacy wireless operations. Operating profit decreased from the prior quarter due to higher Restructuring charges/other, which in the prior quarter included a gain from the transfer of wireless connectivity technology to a customer.

Free cash flow

This release also includes references to free cash flow and various ratios based on that measure.  These are financial measures that were not prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Free cash flow was calculated by subtracting Capital expenditures from the most directly comparable GAAP measure of Cash flow from operating activities (also referred to as Cash flow from operations). 

The free cash flow measures were compared to the following GAAP items to determine the various non-GAAP ratios presented below and referred to in the release:  Revenue, Dividends paid and Stock repurchases.  Reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP-based ratios is provided in the table below.

The company believes these non-GAAP measures provide insight into its liquidity, its cash-generating capability and the amount of cash available to return to investors as well as insight into its financial performance.  These non-GAAP measures are supplemental to the comparable GAAP measures.

This release includes forward-looking statements intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  These forward-looking statements generally can be identified by phrases such as TI or its management "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "foresees," "forecasts," "estimates" or other words or phrases of similar import.  Similarly, statements herein that describe TI's business strategy, outlook, objectives, plans, intentions or goals also are forward-looking statements.  All such forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements. 

We urge you to carefully consider the following important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations of TI or its management:

  • Market demand for semiconductors, particularly in key markets such as communications, computing, industrial, consumer electronics and automotive;

  • Natural events such as severe weather and earthquakes in the locations in which TI, its customers or its suppliers operate;
  • Availability and cost of raw materials, utilities, manufacturing equipment, third-party manufacturing services and manufacturing technology;
  • Changes in the tax rate applicable to TI as the result of changes in tax law, the jurisdictions in which profits are determined to be earned and taxed, the outcome of tax audits and the ability to realize deferred tax assets;
  • Changes in laws and regulations to which TI or its suppliers are or may become subject, such as those imposing fees or reporting or substitution costs relating to the discharge of emissions into the environment or the use of certain raw materials in our manufacturing processes;
  • Losses or curtailments of purchases from key customers and the timing and amount of distributor and other customer inventory adjustments;
  • Customer demand that differs from our forecasts;
  • The financial impact of inadequate or excess TI inventory that results from demand that differs from projections;
  • Impairments of our non-financial assets;
  • Product liability or warranty claims, claims based on epidemic or delivery failure or recalls by TI customers for a product containing a TI part;
  • TI's ability to recruit and retain skilled personnel;
  • Timely implementation of new manufacturing technologies and installation of manufacturing equipment, and the ability to obtain needed third-party foundry and assembly/test subcontract services;
  • TI's obligation to make principal and interest payments on its debt;
