Jul 22, 2015, 16:30 ET from Texas Instruments

DALLAS, July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today reported second-quarter revenue of $3.23 billion, net income of $696 million and earnings per share of 65 cents.

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

  • "Revenue declined 2 percent year over year, inclusive of notably weak demand in communications equipment and continued strong demand in automotive.
  • "Even so, our core businesses of Analog and Embedded Processing, together, grew slightly year over year and comprised 85 percent of second-quarter revenue. Analog delivered its eighth consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth.
  • "Gross margin of 58.2 percent was up 1 percentage point from a year ago, reflecting the diversity and longevity of our product portfolio, as well as the efficiency of our manufacturing strategy.
  • "Our cash flow from operations once again underscored the strength of our business model.  Free cash flow for the trailing 12 months was up 13 percent from a year ago to $3.6 billion, or 27 percent of revenue. This represents an increase of 2 percentage points from a year ago and is consistent with our targeted range of 20-30 percent of revenue.
  • "We returned $4.1 billion to shareholders in the past 12 months through stock repurchases and dividends.
  • "Our strategy to return to shareholders 100 percent of free cash flow plus proceeds from exercises of equity compensation minus net debt retirement reflects our confidence in the long-term sustainability of our business model.
  • "Our balance sheet remains strong with $3.3 billion of cash and short-term investments at the end of the quarter, 82 percent of which was owned by the company's U.S. entities. Inventory ended the quarter at 126 days.
  • "While strength in demand varies by end markets, our market in total is expected to be weaker year over year in the third quarter than it was in the second. Consistent with this view, TI's outlook is for revenue in the range of $3.15 billion to $3.41 billion, and earnings per share between 62 and 72 cents. For the year 2015, TI's annual effective tax rate is expected to be about 30 percent, unchanged from previous guidance."

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure. Free cash flow is cash flow from operations less capital expenditures.

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

Non-GAAP financial information 

Free cash flow and associated ratios This release includes references to free cash flow and 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, Cash flows from operating activities (also referred to as cash flow from operations).

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

Reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP-based measures is provided in the table below.

  • 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;
  • Compliance with or changes in the complex laws, rules and regulations to which TI is or may become subject, or actions of enforcement authorities, that restrict our ability to manufacture our products or operate our business, or subject us to fines, penalties, or other legal liability;
  • Losses or curtailments of purchases from key customers and the timing and amount of distributor and other customer inventory adjustments;
  • Financial difficulties of our distributors or their promotion of competing product lines to TI's detriment;
  • A loss suffered by a customer or distributor of TI with respect to TI-consigned inventory;
  • Customer demand that differs from our forecasts;

  • TI's ability to recruit and retain skilled personnel;
