    Except as noted, financial results are for continuing operations. The sale of TI’s former Sensors & Controls business was completed on April 27, 2006, and that business is reported as a discontinued operation.

    DALLAS (April 21, 2008) – Financial results from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) for the first quarter reflect the company’s strengthening position in the market for analog semiconductors.

    TI revenue was up 3 percent from the year-ago quarter, led by 20 percent growth in high-performance analog semiconductors. TI’s operating profit grew 19 percent. “Analog is making us stronger and will be a great growth opportunity for a very long time. Analog goes into almost every piece of electronic equipment that is made, and at TI we have the technology and the manufacturing power to serve much more of this market than we are addressing today. There also are clear benefits to our operating profit, which has grown faster than revenue, and to our cash flow, which we can return to shareholders or reinvest in growth," said Rich Templeton, TI’s chairman, president and CEO.



    Compared with the fourth quarter, TI revenue declined 8 percent primarily due to weaker sales into cell phones, especially high-end cell phones. “Given uncertainty in the near-term economy, we have become more conservative with our outlook for the second quarter. More strategically, we believe our long-term opportunity is excellent. We’re continuing to do the things needed to be the better choice for our customers, such as adding sales and applications engineers, investing in new products, and increasing assembly/test capability,” Templeton said.

    “In addition to traditional markets in communications and entertainment, analog semiconductors and digital signal processors are at the heart of solving some of the world’s most challenging problems in healthcare, energy and security. We’ve achieved early positions in each of these, all of which are just beginning to leverage semiconductor technology,” Templeton said.

    TI financial results

    • Revenue was $3.27 billion, up $81 million, or 3 percent, from a year ago. Compared with the prior quarter, revenue decreased $284 million, or 8 percent.


    • Gross profit was $1.76 billion, or 53.7 percent of revenue. This was up $119 million from a year ago. Gross profit declined $170 million from the prior quarter.
    • Operating expenses were $514 million for research and development (R&D) and $435 million for selling, general and administrative (SG&A). R&D expense decreased $38 million from a year ago as the company continues to benefit from its collaborative work with foundries on advanced digital process technologies. R&D expense was about the same as the prior quarter. SG&A expense increased $30 million from the year-ago quarter primarily due to higher investments in field sales and customer support, especially for emerging regions. SG&A expense increased $13 million from the prior quarter.


    • Operating profit was $807 million, or 24.7 percent of revenue. This was an increase of $127 million from the year-ago quarter. Operating profit decreased $189 million from the prior quarter.
    • Other income was $33 million. This was down $6 million from the year-ago quarter and down $13 million from the prior quarter due to lower interest income.
    • Income from continuing operations was $662 million, including a discrete tax benefit of $81 million associated with the company’s decision to indefinitely reinvest the accumulated earnings of a non-U.S. subsidiary. Income from continuing operations increased $146 million from the year-ago quarter and declined $91 million from the prior quarter.


    • Earnings per share (EPS) were $0.49 and included a discrete tax benefit of $0.06. EPS increased $0.14 from the year-ago quarter and decreased $0.05 from the prior quarter.
    • Orders were $3.32 billion. This was an increase of $111 million from the year-ago quarter and a decline of $164 million from the prior quarter.
    • Cash flow from operations was $641 million, an increase of $87 million from a year ago and a decrease of $781 million from the prior quarter.


    • Accounts receivable were $1.67 billion at the end of the quarter. This was a decrease of $87 million from the year-ago quarter and a decrease of $73 million from the prior quarter. Days sales outstanding were 46 at the end of the quarter compared with 50 a year ago and 44 at the end of the prior quarter.
    • Inventory was $1.58 billion at the end of the quarter. This was $169 million higher than the year-ago quarter and $160 million higher than the prior quarter. Days of inventory at the end of the first quarter were 94, up 12 days from a year ago and up 16 days from the prior quarter.
    • Capital spending totaled $219 million. Depreciation was $241 million.


    • Total cash (cash and cash equivalents plus short-term investments) was $1.88 billion at the end of the quarter. This was $1.46 billion lower than a year ago and $1.05 billion lower than the prior quarter. The company reduced its holdings of auction-rate securities, which are based on pools of student loans that are guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Education, by $473 million from the end of the prior quarter. As of the end of the first quarter, TI reclassified its remaining auction-rate securities, which have a fair value of $551 million, from short-term investments to long-term investments due to reduced liquidity for these securities. The company used $874 million in the quarter to repurchase 28.6 million shares of its common stock and paid dividends of $133 million.

    Semiconductor segment



    • Revenue was $3.19 billion. This was 2 percent higher than a year ago primarily due to higher sales of analog products, especially high-performance analog products. Revenue declined 8 percent from the prior quarter primarily due to lower demand for digital signal processing products sold into cell phone applications.
      • Analog product revenue was $1.32 billion. This was up 6 percent compared with a year ago due to stronger demand for high-performance analog products. Revenue was down 4 percent from the prior quarter primarily due to weaker demand for application-specific analog products sold into hard-disk drive and cell phone applications. Revenue from high-performance analog products increased 20 percent from a year ago and was about even with the prior quarter.
      • Digital signal processing product revenue was $1.12 billion. This was a decrease of 3 percent from a year ago and a decrease of 18 percent from the prior quarter. Both declines were due to lower sales into cell phone applications.
      • TI’s remaining semiconductor revenue was $754 million. This was up 6 percent from a year ago and was up 2 percent from the prior quarter.


    • Gross profit was $1.73 billion, or 54.3 percent of revenue. This was up $102 million, or 6 percent, from the year-ago quarter primarily due to higher revenue from more-profitable analog products, and to a lesser extent, from microcontrollers. Gross profit was down $165 million, or 9 percent, from the prior quarter due to lower revenue.
    • Operating profit for the first quarter was $927 million, or 29.0 percent of revenue. This was an increase of $96 million from the year-ago quarter and a decrease of $190 million from the prior quarter.
    • Orders in the first quarter were $3.17 billion. This was up 3 percent from the year-ago quarter and down 7 percent from the prior quarter.

    Semiconductor highlights



    • TI introduced a family of analog front-end chips that enable superior image quality and reduced power consumption in medical ultrasound diagnostic equipment.
    • TI delivered the industry’s first closed-loop, digital-input Class-D audio amplifier that improves sound quality and lowers audio subsystem costs in high-definition TVs and media docking stations.
    • TI demonstrated a prototype cell phone based on the Android open source platform and built using TI’s OMAP™ applications processor and connectivity solutions.

    Education Technology segment



    • Revenue was $81 million. This was an increase of $5 million, or 7 percent, from the year-ago quarter due to higher sales of graphing calculators. Revenue was even with the prior quarter.
    • Gross profit was $49 million, or 60.5 percent of revenue. This was an increase of $4 million from the year-ago quarter and was a decrease of $1 million from the prior quarter.
    • Operating profit was $18 million, or 21.9 percent of revenue. This was an increase of $2 million from the year-ago quarter and a decrease of $1 million from the prior quarter.

    “Safe Harbor” Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995:
    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. These forward-looking statements generally can be identified by phrases such as TI or its management “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “foresees,” “forecasts,” “estimates” or other words or phrases of similar import. Similarly, statements herein that describe TI’s business strategy, outlook, objectives, plans, intentions or goals also are forward-looking statements. 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 its management:

    • Market demand for semiconductors, particularly for analog chips and digital signal processors in key markets such as communications, entertainment electronics and computing;
    • TI’s ability to maintain or improve profit margins, including its ability to utilize its manufacturing facilities at sufficient levels to cover its fixed operating costs, in an intensely competitive and cyclical industry;


    • TI’s ability to develop, manufacture and market innovative products in a rapidly changing technological environment;
    • TI’s ability to compete in products and prices in an intensely competitive industry;
    • TI’s ability to maintain and enforce a strong intellectual property portfolio and obtain needed licenses from third parties;
    • Expiration of license agreements between TI and its patent licensees, and market conditions reducing royalty payments to TI;
    • Economic, social and political conditions in the countries in which TI, its customers or its suppliers operate, including security risks, health conditions, possible disruptions in transportation networks and fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates;


    • Natural events such as severe weather and earthquakes in the locations in which TI, its customers or its suppliers operate;
    • Availability and cost of raw materials, utilities, manufacturing equipment, third-party manufacturing services and manufacturing technology;
    • 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;
    • Losses or curtailments of purchases from key customers and the timing and amount of distributor and other customer inventory adjustments;
    • Customer demand that differs from our forecasts;


    • The financial impact of inadequate or excess TI inventory that results from demand that differs from projections;
    • TI's ability to access its bank accounts and lines of credit or otherwise access the capital markets;
    • Product liability or warranty claims, claims based on epidemic or delivery failure or recalls by TI customers for a product containing a TI part;
    • TI’s ability to recruit and retain skilled personnel; and
    • Timely implementation of new manufacturing technologies, installation of manufacturing equipment and the ability to obtain needed third-party foundry and assembly/test subcontract services.
