Quarterly Financial Summary

  • Gross margin was 35 percent in Q4 2013.
    • Gross margin decreased 1 percentage point sequentially. Q4 2013 gross margin included a $7 million benefit from the sale of inventory previously reserved in Q3 2012 as compared to a similar benefit of $19 million in Q3 2013.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balance, including long-term marketable securities, was $1.2 billion at the end of the quarter, in line with expectations.
  • Computing Solutions segment revenue decreased 9 percent sequentially and 13 percent year-over-year. The sequential and year-over-year declines were primarily due to decreased chipset and notebook unit shipments.
    • Operating loss was $7 million, compared with operating income of $22 million in Q3 2013, primarily due to lower revenue and higher bonus expense. Operating loss for Q4 2012 was $323 million.
    • Microprocessor Average Selling Price (ASP) increased sequentially and year-over-year.
  • Graphics and Visual Solutions segment revenue increased 29 percent sequentially and 165 percent year-over-year primarily driven by our semi-custom SoCs.
    • Operating income was $121 million compared with $79 million in Q3 2013 and $22 million in Q4 2012, primarily due to increased revenue from our semi-custom SoCs.
    • GPU ASP increased sequentially and year-over-year.

Recent Highlights

  • Microsoft and Sony launched their next-generation gaming and entertainment consoles powered by semi-custom AMD APUs. Combined, the two consoles sold more than seven million units in less than two months.
  • AMD began shipping the next-generation AMD A-series desktop APU codenamed "Kaveri," ushering in the next level of graphics, compute and efficiency for desktops, notebooks, embedded systems and servers. "Kaveri" is the first APU to include Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) features, AMD TrueAudio technology and support for AMD's Mantle API.
  • AMD announced low-power APU offerings for 2014 with the addition of "Beema" and ultra-low power "Mullins" mobile APUs to its roadmap. Raising the performance bar across fanless tablets, 2-in-1s and ultrathin notebooks, the new APUs deliver more than 2x the performance-per-watt of the previous generation(2)(3). AMD showcased the innovative features and potential of both "Beema" and "Mullins" at CES 2014 with the company's award-winning Discovery Project PC gaming and productivity tablet, as well as the "Nano PC," a full-featured Windows 8 PC reference design the size of a smartphone.
  • AMD launched a new family of mobile discrete GPU products. The AMD Radeon™ R9, R7, and R5 M200 Series mobile GPUs are powered by the award-winning Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture and bolstered by the Mantle API. Dell, Lenovo, MSI, and Clevo have announced notebooks featuring the new GPUs.
  • AMD FirePro™ professional graphics continued to gain momentum, with Apple launching its new Mac Pro, featuring dual AMD FirePro™ professional graphics solutions (GPUs.) AMD also announced the new AMD FirePro™ S10000 12GB Edition graphics card, the industry's first "supercomputing" server graphics card with 12GB memory, specifically designed for big data, high-performance heterogeneous compute workloads for single precision and double precision performance.
  • AMD was awarded a multi-year research project associated with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Extreme-Scale Computing Research and Development Program, known as "DesignForward." The "DesignForward" award supports the research of the interconnect architectures and technologies needed to support the data transfer capabilities in extreme-scale computing environments.

Current Outlook

  * The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its performance. Adjusted EBITDA for the Company is determined by adjusting operating income (loss) for depreciation and amortization, employee stock-based compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets. In addition, the Company also included the following adjustments for the indicated periods: for the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company included adjustments for net legal settlements; for the third quarter of 2013, the Company included adjustments for net restructuring and other special charges (gains); for 2013, the Company included adjustments for net legal settlements and net restructuring and other special charges (gains); for the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company included adjustments for the lower of cost or market charge (LCM Charge) related to GF take-or-pay obligation and net restructuring and other special charges (gains); for 2012, the Company included adjustments for the LCM Charge, a charge related to the limited waiver of exclusivity from GF, net legal settlements, net restructuring and other special charges (gains) and SeaMicro, Inc acquisition costs. The Company calculates and communicates Adjusted EBITDA in the financial schedules because the Company's management believes it is of importance to investors and lenders in relation to its overall capital structure and its ability to borrow additional funds. In addition, the Company presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes this measure assists investors in comparing its performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that the Company does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance. The Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may or may not be consistent with the calculation of this measure by other companies in the same industry. Investors should not view Adjusted EBITDA as an alternative to the GAAP operating measure of operating income (loss) or GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account changes in certain assets and liabilities as well as interest and income taxes that can affect cash flows.  
     
  ** The Company also presents non-GAAP free cash flow in the earnings release as a supplemental measure of its performance. Non-GAAP free cash flow is determined by adjusting GAAP net cash provided by (used in) operating activities for capital expenditures. The Company calculates and communicates non-GAAP free cash flow in the financial schedules because the Company's management believes it is of importance to investors to understand the nature of these cash flows. The Company's calculation of non-GAAP free cash flow may or may not be consistent with the calculation of this measure by other companies in the same industry. Investors should not view non-GAAP free cash flow as an alternative to GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating activities. The Company has provided reconciliations within the press release and financial schedules of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
