Quarterly Summary

  • Gross margin was 43 percent.
    • Non-GAAP gross margin was 45 percent, flat sequentially.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balance at the end of the quarter was $1.75 billion.
  • Computing Solutions segment revenue decreased 2 percent sequentially and increased 3 percent year-over-year. The sequential decrease was driven primarily by lower average selling price (ASP) partially offset by higher desktop microprocessor sales. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by strong microprocessor unit sales in the channel.
    • Operating income was $100 million, compared with $91 million in Q410 and $146 million in Q110.
    • Microprocessor ASP decreased sequentially and year-over-year.
    • AMD commenced revenue shipments of AMD's first Fusion APU for mainstream notebooks (codenamed "Llano") that combines discrete-class graphics capabilities, personal supercomputing performance and AMD AllDay™ power.
    • Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Sony and Toshiba shipped sleek new thin-and-light notebooks based on AMD's low-power APUs capable of delivering high definition visual experiences and extended battery life.
    • More than 50 applications from software companies including Adobe, ArcSoft, Corel, CyberLink and Microsoft take advantage of the incredible compute power found in AMD's APUs and GPUs to dramatically improve application performance and power efficiency.
    • AMD launched the world's first APU specifically designed for embedded systems with a record number of embedded partners for the company. Fujitsu, Kontron, Quixant and Congatec announced APU-based solutions for graphics-intensive markets like digital signage, Internet-ready set top boxes, casino gaming machines and point-of-sale kiosks. Acer, Cray, Dell, HP, SGI and other server manufacturers launched new or updated systems based on five newly introduced AMD Opteron™ 6100 series processors.
    • In the high performance computing market (HPC), AMD Opteron-based solutions continue to gain traction based on their greater scalability. New customer wins include Lockheed Martin's cluster for the US Department of Defense and the University of Sao Paulo's cluster to enable advanced scientific astronomical research.
    • AMD expanded its enthusiast desktop offerings with the introduction of its fastest four-core processor, the AMD Phenom™ II X4 975 Black Edition.
  • Graphics segment revenue decreased 3 percent sequentially and was flat year-over-year. The sequential decrease was driven primarily by a seasonal decline in royalties received in connection with the sale of game console systems.
    • Operating income was $19 million, compared with $68 million in Q410 and $47 million in Q110.
    • GPU ASP decreased sequentially and year-over-year.
    • AMD maintained its graphics performance leadership position with the launch of the world's fastest graphics card, the AMD Radeon™ HD 6990.
    • Apple refreshed its Macbook Pro line-up with the new AMD Radeon HD 6490M and HD 6750M graphics chips. AMD now provides discrete graphics solutions across Apple's iMac and Macbook Pro product lines.
    • Strong industry adoption of AMD's mobile graphics continued, as HP and Dell launched new designs powered by the new AMD Radeon™ HD6000M family of graphics processors.

* Starting with the quarter ended December 26, 2009, the Company presented "Adjusted EBITDA" as a supplemental measure of its performance. Adjusted EBITDA for the Company was determined by adjusting operating income (loss) for depreciation and amortization, employee stock-based compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets. In addition, for the first quarter of 2011, the Company included an adjustment related to a payment to GLOBALFOUNDRIES and a legal settlement with a third party; and for the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company included an adjustment related to its legal settlement with a third party. 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.
** Starting in the first quarter of 2010, the Company presents non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow as a supplemental measure of its performance. In 2008 and 2009 the Company and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, the "AMD Parties") entered into supplier agreements with IBM Credit LLC and certain of its subsidiaries, (collectively, the "IBM Parties"). Pursuant to these supplier agreements, the AMD Parties sold to the IBM Parties invoices of selected distributor customers. Because the Company does not recognize revenue until its distributors sell its products to their customers, under U.S. GAAP, the Company classifies funds received from the IBM Parties as debt on the balance sheet. Moreover, for cash flow purposes, these funds are classified as cash flows from financing activities. When a distributor pays the applicable IBM Party, the Company reduces the distributor's accounts receivable and the corresponding debt resulting in a non-cash accounting entry. Because the Company does not receive the cash from the distributor to reduce the accounts receivable, the distributor's payment is never reflected in the Company's cash flows from operating activities. Non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow for the Company was determined by adjusting GAAP net cash provided by (used in) operating activities by adding the distributors' payments to the IBM Parties to GAAP net cash provided by (used in) operating activities. This amount is then further adjusted by subtracting capital expenditures. Generally, under U.S. GAAP, the reduction in accounts receivable is assumed to be a source of operating cash flows. Therefore, the Company believes that treating the payments from its distributor customers to the IBM Parties as if the Company actually received the cash from the distributor and then used that cash to pay down the debt is more reflective of the economic substance of the transaction. On February 11, 2011, the Company terminated its supplier agreements with the IBM Parties. The Company calculates and communicates non-GAAP adjusted 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 Adjusted 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 Adjusted Free Cash Flow as an alternative to GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating or financing activities.
