AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced revenue for the third quarter of 2010 of $1.62 billion, a net loss of $118 million, or $0.17 per share, and operating income of $128 million. The company reported non-GAAP net income of $108 million, or $0.15 per share, and non-GAAP operating income of $144 million.

"AMD's third quarter performance was highlighted by solid gross margin and a continued focus on profitability, despite weaker than expected consumer demand," said Dirk Meyer, AMD president and CEO. "Our strategy to deliver platforms with superior visual experiences continues to resonate. We look forward to building on this momentum when we begin shipping our first AMD Fusion Accelerated Processor Units later this quarter."

Quarterly Summary

  • Gross margin was 46 percent.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balance at the end of the quarter was $1.73 billion. The decrease from the second quarter was primarily due to the repurchase of $800 million aggregate principal amount of 6.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2015 offset by proceeds from our issuance of $500 million of 7.75% Senior Notes due 2020.
    • Approximately $780 million of the 6.00% Convertible Senior Notes remained outstanding as of September 25, 2010.
  • Computing Solutions segment revenue was flat sequentially and up 13 percent year-over-year. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by record notebook microprocessor unit shipments.
    • Operating income was $164 million, compared with $128 million in Q2-10 and $82 million in Q3-09.
    • Microprocessor average selling price (ASP) decreased slightly sequentially and increased year-over-year.
    • AMD updated its desktop processor family with six new offerings, including the six-core AMD Phenom™ II X6 1075 processor with high-end features like Turbo CORE acceleration technology, and the unlocked, quad-core AMD Phenom™ II X2 560 Black Edition processor which enables performance-tuning capabilities.
    • IBM joined the ranks of global customers offering AMD Opteron™ 6000 series platform-based systems. In total, more than 40 unique AMD Opteron™ 6000 series-based platforms are now available from leading server manufacturers, including the HP ProLiant DL385 G7, the Dell PowerEdge™ R815, and many others.
    • AMD released significant technical details of two new x86 cores during the quarter. "Bulldozer" targets high-performance PC and server markets, while "Bobcat" is intended for low-power notebook and desktop markets. Both cores were designed from the ground up to address specific customer requirements and compute workloads.
    • AMD demonstrated "Brazos", the upcoming platform combining low-power x86 processor cores and discrete-level graphics capabilities in a single AMD Fusion Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). "Brazos" platforms will feature the "Ontario" and "Zacate" APUs and are expected to bring many of the vivid digital computing experiences once reserved for high-end PCs to value and mainstream notebooks and desktops early next year.
  • Graphics segment revenue decreased 11 percent sequentially but increased 33 percent year-over-year. The sequential decrease was driven by decreased mobile graphics processor unit (GPU) unit shipments and decreased ASP. The year-over-year increase was driven by an increase in GPU unit shipments and ASP. 
    • Operating income was $1 million, compared with $33 million in Q2-10 and $2 million in Q3-09.
    • AMD has shipped more than 25 million DirectX11-capable GPUs since introduction in September 2009.
    • AMD launched the ATI FirePro™ V9800, the company's flagship professional graphics card and the industry's only single-card solution for driving up to six monitors at a time.
    • Apple refreshed its iMac and Mac Pro desktop computers, making ATI Radeon™ cards the only graphics solution for all configurations of these products. 

Current Outlook
AMD's outlook statements are based on current expectations. The following statements are forward looking, and actual results could differ materially depending on market conditions and the factors set forth under "Cautionary Statement" below.

AMD expects revenue to be approximately flat sequentially for the fourth quarter of 2010.

(1)  From March 2, 2009 through December 26, 2009, the Company consolidated the operating results of GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF). Starting in the first fiscal quarter of 2010 the Company began to account for its investment in GF under the equity method of accounting. The Company believes this non-GAAP presentation makes it easier for investors to compare current and historical period operating results, by excluding the results of operations of GF in the third and second fiscal quarters of 2010 and the nine months ended September 25, 2010, and Foundry segment and Intersegment Eliminations in the third fiscal quarter of 2009 and nine months ended September 26, 2009.  
(2)  Starting in the first fiscal quarter of 2010, the Company began to account for its investment in GF under the equity method of accounting. From March 2, 2009 through December 26, 2009 the operating results of GF were included in the Foundry segment.  
(3)  For the third and second fiscal quarters of 2010, the Company excluded Equity in net income (loss) of investee. For the nine months ended September 25, 2010, the Company also excluded the gain recognized on the fair value assessment of its investment in GF upon deconsolidation, and the gross margin benefit due to the deconsolidation of GF. For the third fiscal quarter of 2009 and the nine months ended September 26, 2009, the Company excluded the Foundry segment and Intersegment Eliminations consisting of revenues, cost of sales, and profit on inventory between the Computing Solutions and the Foundry segments.  
(4)  The outstanding diluted share amount for the non-GAAP diluted earnings per share calculation for the third fiscal quarter of 2010, the second fiscal quarter of 2010, and the nine month period ended September 25, 2010 are 731 million shares, 733 million shares, and 732 million shares, respectively. These share amounts exclude the 24 million shares issuable upon conversion of the Company's 5.75% convertible notes because the inclusion of these shares would be anti-dilutive.

    *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 second quarter of 2010 and the nine months ended September 25, 2010, the Company further included an adjustment for certain restructuring reversals. For the third quarter and nine months ended September 26, 2009, the Company further included adjustments for the Foundry segment and Intersegment Eliminations operating loss and restructuring charges, and for the nine months ended September 26, 2009, the Company further included an adjustment for GF formation 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.  
       
    ** Long-term debt and capital lease obligations also includes the current portion.  
       
    *** 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 sell 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. 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.
