DALLAS, Oct. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today reported third-quarter revenue of $4.12 billion, net income of $1.29 billion and earnings per share of $1.26. Earnings per share include a 2-cent discrete tax benefit not in the company's original guidance.

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

  • "Revenue increased 12 percent from the same quarter a year ago. Demand for our products continued to be strong in the industrial and automotive markets.
  • "In our core businesses, Analog revenue grew 16 percent and Embedded Processing revenue grew 17 percent from the same quarter a year ago. Operating margin increased in both businesses.
  • "Gross margin of 64.5 percent reflected the quality of our product portfolio, as well as the efficiency of our manufacturing strategy, including the benefit of 300-millimeter Analog production.
  • "Our cash flow from operations of $4.8 billion for the trailing 12 months again underscored the strength of our business model. Free cash flow for the trailing 12 months was $4.2 billion and represents 29.0 percent of revenue.
  • "We have returned $4.3 billion to owners in the past 12 months through dividends and stock repurchases. In September, we announced we would increase our dividend by 24 percent and also increased our share repurchase authorizations by $6 billion, which together reflect our commitment to return all free cash flow to our owners.
  • "TI's fourth-quarter outlook is for revenue in the range of $3.57 billion to $3.87 billion, and earnings per share between $1.01 and $1.15, which includes an estimated $20 million discrete tax benefit."

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

Certain amounts in the prior period have been recast to conform to the current presentation.

Compared with the year-ago quarter:

Analog: (includes Power, Signal Chain and High Volume

  • Revenue increased due to Power and Signal Chain. High Volume was about even.
  • Operating profit increased primarily due to higher revenue and associated gross profit.

Embedded Processing: (includes Connected Microcontrollers and Processors)

  • Revenue increased in Processors and Connected Microcontrollers.
  • Operating profit increased primarily due to higher revenue and associated gross profit.

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

  • Revenue decreased by $70 million, and operating profit declined by $32 million.

Non-GAAP financial information

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 shareholders, 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 measures is provided in the table below.

Amounts are in millions of dollars.

This release also includes references to an annual operating tax rate, a non-GAAP term the company uses to describe the estimated annual effective tax rate, a GAAP measure that by definition does not include discrete tax items. The company believes the term annual operating tax rate is useful because it more clearly communicates that discrete tax items are excluded from such rate. The term also helps differentiate from the effective tax rate, which includes discrete tax items. No adjustments are made to the estimated annual effective tax rate when using the term annual operating tax rate.

Notice regarding forward-looking statements

This release includes forward-looking statements intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

All such forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements. 

We urge you to carefully consider the following important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations of TI or our management:

  • Market demand for semiconductors, particularly in TI's end markets;
  • TI's ability to compete in products and prices in an intensely competitive industry;
  • Customer demand that differs from forecasts and the financial impact of inadequate or excess TI inventory that results from demand that differs from projections;
  • TI's ability to develop, manufacture and market innovative products in a rapidly changing technological environment;
  • Economic, social and political conditions in the countries in which TI, our customers or our suppliers operate, including security risks; global trade policies; political and social instability; health conditions; possible disruptions in transportation, communications and information technology networks; and fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates;
  • Natural events such as severe weather, geological events or health epidemics in the locations in which TI, our customers or our suppliers operate;
  • Breaches or disruptions of TI's information technology systems or those of our customers or suppliers;
  • Timely implementation of new manufacturing technologies and installation of manufacturing equipment, or the ability to obtain needed third-party foundry and assembly/test subcontract services;
  • Availability and cost of raw materials, utilities, manufacturing equipment, third-party manufacturing services and manufacturing technology;
  • 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 TI's ability to manufacture or ship our products or operate our business, or subject TI to fines, penalties, or other legal liability;
  • Product liability or warranty claims, claims based on epidemic or delivery failure, or other claims relating to TI products, manufacturing, services, design or communications, or recalls by TI customers for a product containing a TI part;
  • 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, adverse resolution of tax audits, increases in tariff rates, and the ability to realize deferred tax assets;
  • A loss suffered by a customer or distributor of TI with respect to TI-consigned inventory;
  • Financial difficulties of distributors or their promotion of competing product lines to TI's detriment, or the loss of a significant number of distributors;
  • Losses or curtailments of purchases from key customers or the timing and amount of distributor and other customer inventory adjustments;
  • TI's ability to maintain or improve profit margins, including our ability to utilize our manufacturing facilities at sufficient levels to cover our fixed operating costs, in an intensely competitive and cyclical industry;
  • TI's ability to maintain and enforce a strong intellectual property portfolio and maintain freedom of operation; or TI's exposure to infringement claims;
  • Instability in the global credit and financial markets that affects TI's ability to fund our daily operations, invest in the business, make strategic acquisitions, or make principal and interest payments on our debt;
  • Increases in health care and pension benefit costs;
  • TI's ability to recruit and retain skilled engineering, management and technical personnel;
  • TI's ability to successfully integrate and realize opportunities for growth from acquisitions, or our ability to realize our expectations regarding the amount and timing of restructuring charges and associated cost savings; and
  • Impairments of TI's non-financial assets.
