DALLAS, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE:TXN - News) today announced third-quarter revenue of $3.74 billion, net income of $859 million and earnings per share of 71 cents.

"Our strong performance was driven by growth in all of our segments," said Rich Templeton, TI chairman, president and chief executive officer. "TI's continuing transformation to a company focused on Analog and Embedded Processing delivered new highs for both gross and operating margins. Strong earnings per share demonstrate the combined impact of solid profits and our diligence to return excess capital to our shareholders through stock repurchases.

"Demand from industrial markets was especially strong, while consumer demand cooled, impacting markets such as computing and televisions. Across a wide array of markets, our Analog and Embedded Processing products and Wireless smartphone chips continued to gain share. These products are broadly needed in today's electronic equipment, and our market share gains reflect the focused investments we've made in our portfolio, applications support and manufacturing capacity.

"Importantly, we soon will begin initial shipments from RFAB, the world's first 300-millimeter manufacturing facility for analog semiconductors. In the quarter, we also purchased a 200-millimeter analog manufacturing facility in Aizu, Japan, and this month we began our first semiconductor manufacturing operations in China with the purchase of a facility in the high-tech region of Chengdu. These purchases have been made at substantial discounts, and they support our plans to continue gaining market share over the long term.

"As we move into the fourth quarter, we expect sequentially lower revenue reflecting a combination of seasonal patterns, continued soft demand in computing and consumer markets, and slowing growth in the industrial market," Templeton concluded.

Note: 3Q09 has been restated to reflect the 1Q10 transfer of a low-power wireless product line from the Analog segment to the Wireless segment. For 2009, revenue from this product line was $68 million, and it operated at a loss of $17 million.

Analog: (includes high-volume analog & logic, high-performance analog and power management products)

  • Compared with a year ago, the increase in revenue was due to growth in all three major product areas.
  • Compared with the prior quarter, the increase in revenue was primarily due to growth in high-performance analog products. Revenue from high-volume analog & logic and power management products increased to a lesser extent.
  • Operating profit increased both from a year ago and the prior quarter due to higher gross profit.


Embedded Processing: (includes digital signal processor and microcontroller catalog products that are sold across a wide variety of markets, as well as application-specific products that are used in communications infrastructure and automotive electronics)

  • Compared with a year ago, revenue grew primarily due to catalog products, as well as due to products sold into communications infrastructure. Revenue from automotive applications increased to a lesser extent.
  • Compared with the prior quarter, revenue grew due to strength in both communications infrastructure and catalog products. Revenue from automotive applications was even.
  • Operating profit increased both from a year ago and the prior quarter due to higher gross profit.


Wireless: (includes connectivity products, OMAP™ applications processors and baseband products)

  • Compared with a year ago, revenue grew due to strength in connectivity products and applications processors. Revenue from baseband products declined.
  • Compared with the prior quarter, revenue grew due to baseband and connectivity products. Revenue from applications processors increased to a lesser extent.
  • Operating profit increased both from a year ago and from the prior quarter due to higher gross profit.


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

  • Compared with a year ago, revenue grew primarily due to DLP and custom ASIC products. Royalties also increased, while revenue from calculators declined.
  • Compared with the prior quarter, revenue grew primarily due to strength across custom ASIC products, DLP products and calculators. Royalties were lower.
  • Operating profit increased both from a year ago and from the prior quarter due to higher gross profit.

Safe Harbor Statement

"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 in key markets such as communications, computing, industrial and entertainment electronics;
  • 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;
  • Changes in laws and regulations to which TI or its suppliers are or may become subject, such as those imposing fees or reporting or substitution costs relating to the discharge of emissions into the environment or the use of certain raw materials in our manufacturing processes;
  • 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;
  • Impairments of our non-financial assets;
  • 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.


For a more detailed discussion of these factors, see the Risk Factors discussion in Item 1A of TI's most recent Form 10-K.
