Apr 22, 2013, 16:30 ET from Texas Instruments Incorporated

DALLAS, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced first-quarter revenue of $2.89 billion, net income of $362 million and earnings per share of 32 cents.

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

  • "Our revenue and earnings ended the quarter at the high end of our expected range.  Customers continued to operate in a real-time mode, maintaining minimal component inventory and ordering parts as they were needed.  Our short product lead times, well-positioned inventory and ready manufacturing capacity allow us to respond rapidly to changes in demand.
  • "TI is now firmly rooted in Analog and Embedded Processing, and in the first quarter these segments contributed 77 percent of our revenue – a full five points more than a year ago.
  • "Our business model generates strong cash flow from operations.  Free cash flow* for the trailing 12 months was almost $3 billion, up 16 percent compared with a year ago.  Further, free cash flow comprised 23 percent of revenue, which is consistent with our target of 20-25 percent.  Free cash flow is well in excess of net income, and we expect it to remain so for some time as non-cash expenses are included in net income. 
  • "In the quarter, we announced a 33 percent increase in our dividend to $1.12 per share annualized, and we added another $5 billion to our stock repurchase authorization.  Both increases reflect our confidence in the long-term sustainability of our Analog and Embedded Processing business model.  
  • "We returned $911 million to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases in the first quarter.  For the trailing 12 months, the return to shareholders totaled $3 billion, or 107 percent of free cash flow, consistent with our intention to return all our free cash flow to shareholders except what is needed to repay debt. 
  • "Our balance sheet remains strong, with $3.9 billion of cash and short-term investments on hand at the end of the quarter, 84 percent of which is owned by the company's U.S. entities.  Inventory was 101 days, down from 105 a year ago."

* Non-GAAP; Free cash flow is Cash flow from operations less Capital expenditures.

Outlook

For the second quarter of 2013, TI expects:

For the full year of 2013, TI expects approximately the following:

  • R&D expense:  $1.5 billion, down from the prior estimate of $1.6 billion

1Q13 segment results

Beginning with this financial report, TI has transitioned its segment reporting to align with the company's strategic focus and new organizational structure.  The Wireless segment has been eliminated, as the company has announced that it is winding down investment in Wireless products for the smartphone and consumer tablet markets.  Financial results for these legacy wireless products are included in the Other segment.  Financial results for Wireless products that address embedded applications, a strategic focus for the company, are reported in the Embedded Processing segment.  In addition, some products, mostly RFID products used in automotive applications, were moved from the Other segment into Embedded Processing.  Historical information for the new segment structure is available at ti.com/ir.

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

  • Compared with a year ago, revenue decreased due to lower Silicon Valley Analog revenue.  High Volume Analog & Logic revenue and High Performance Analog revenue also declined while revenue from Power Management increased. 
  • Compared with the prior quarter, revenue was about even as lower revenue from High Volume Analog & Logic and Power Management was offset by higher revenue from Silicon Valley Analog and High Performance Analog.   
  • Operating profit decreased from a year ago primarily due to lower revenue and associated gross profit.  Operating profit declined from the prior quarter primarily due to higher operating expenses.

Embedded Processing:  (includes Processors, Microcontrollers and Connectivity)

  • Compared with the year-ago quarter, the increase in revenue was primarily due to higher Microcontroller revenue.  Revenue from Connectivity also increased, while Processor revenue was about even.
  • Compared with the prior quarter, revenue increased due to Microcontrollers.  Processor revenue declined while Connectivity revenue was about even.
  • Operating profit declined from a year ago primarily due to lower gross profit.  Operating profit decreased from the prior quarter due to higher operating expenses.

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.  The year-ago quarter also included proceeds that did not recur from business interruption insurance associated with the Japan earthquake.  Revenue from custom ASIC products and calculators also declined.  Revenue from DLP products and royalties increased.
  • Compared with the prior quarter, revenue declined primarily due to lower revenue from legacy wireless products.  Revenue from custom ASIC products and royalties also declined.  Revenue from calculators increased and from DLP products was about even. 
  • Operating profit increased from a year ago primarily due to lower operating expenses.  Operating profit increased from the prior quarter due to lower restructuring charges.

Non-GAAP financial information

This earnings release includes references to free cash flow and various ratios based on that measure. These are financial measures that were not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (non-GAAP measures).  Free cash flow was calculated by subtracting Capital expenditures from the most directly comparable GAAP measure of Cash flows 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 all of 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.
