DALLAS, Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today reported third-quarter revenue of $3.68 billion, net income of $968 million and earnings per share of 94 cents.

TI also increased its quarterly dividend by 32 percent to 50 cents per share, or $2.00 annualized. The increase reflects TI's continued strength in free cash flow generation and its commitment to return excess cash to shareholders. The quarterly dividend was declared and will be payable November 21, 2016, to shareholders of record on November 7, 2016

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

  • "Revenue and earnings per share for the quarter were slightly above our expected range. Compared with a year ago, demand for our products continued to be strong in the automotive market and improved in the industrial market. Demand in the personal electronics market was about even with a year ago.
  • "In our core businesses, Embedded Processing revenue grew 10 percent and Analog revenue grew 6 percent from the same quarter a year ago. Operating margin increased in both businesses.
  • "Gross margin of 62.0 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 $4.5 billion for the trailing 12 months again underscored the strength of our business model. Free cash flow for the trailing 12 months was up 8 percent from a year ago to $3.9 billion, and represents 29.5 percent of revenue, up from 27.5 percent a year ago.
  • "We have returned $3.8 billion to shareholders in the past 12 months through stock repurchases and dividends, consistent with our strategy to return to shareholders all of our free cash flow plus proceeds from exercises of equity compensation minus net debt retirement.
  • "Our balance sheet remains strong with $3.1 billion of cash and short-term investments at the end of the quarter, about 80 percent of which was owned by the company's U.S. entities. Inventory ended the quarter at 117 days.
  • "TI's fourth-quarter outlook is for revenue in the range of $3.17 billion to $3.43 billion, and earnings per share between 76 and 86 cents. For 2016, TI's annual effective tax rate is expected to be about 30 percent, unchanged from previous guidance."

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

Compared with the year-ago quarter:

Analog: (includes High Volume Analog & Logic, Power Management, High Performance Analog and Silicon Valley Analog) 

  • Revenue increased due to High Performance Analog, Silicon Valley Analog and Power Management. High Volume Analog & Logic was about even.
  • Operating profit increased primarily due to higher revenue and lower manufacturing costs.

Embedded Processing: (includes Microcontrollers, Processors and Connectivity)

  • Revenue increased in all three product lines, led by Processors.
  • Operating profit increased primarily due to higher revenue and associated gross profit.

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

  • Revenue increased primarily due to calculators and DLP products, partially offset by a decrease in royalties and custom ASIC products.
  • Operating profit increased primarily due to higher revenue and associated gross profit.

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.

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. 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 TI's end markets;
  • TI's ability to compete in products and prices in an intensely competitive industry;
  • 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 forecasts and the financial impact of inadequate or excess TI inventory that results from demand that differs from projections;
  • 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;
  • 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, 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, its customers or its suppliers operate;
  • Breaches of TI's information technology systems or those of its customers or suppliers;
  • Availability and cost of raw materials, utilities, manufacturing equipment, third-party manufacturing services and manufacturing technology;
  • Timely implementation of new manufacturing technologies and installation of manufacturing equipment, and the ability to obtain needed third-party foundry and assembly/test subcontract services;
  • 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;
  • 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 its products or operate its business, or subject us 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 and the ability to realize deferred tax assets;
  • Financial difficulties of distributors or their promotion of competing product lines to TI's detriment;
  • A loss suffered by a customer or distributor of TI with respect to TI-consigned inventory;
  • Instability in the global credit and financial markets that affects TI's ability to fund its daily operations, invest in the business, make strategic acquisitions, or make principal and interest payments on its debt;
  • Increases in health care and pension benefit costs;
  • TI's ability to recruit and retain skilled personnel;
  • TI's ability to successfully integrate and realize opportunities for growth from acquisitions, and its ability to realize its expectations regarding the amount and timing of restructuring charges and associated cost savings; and
  • Impairments of TI's non-financial assets.

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