Q2 2013 Reportable Segment Name Change

AMD's Graphics reportable segment has been renamed Graphics and Visual Solutions. The new reportable segment nomenclature provides greater clarity on the product lines that comprise the segment and reflects the growing importance of gaming and semi-custom offerings to AMD. There is no change to the composition of this reportable segment from what was previously reported.

AMD's two reportable segments continue to be comprised of the following:

  • The Computing Solutions segment, which includes microprocessors (MPUs), accelerated processing units (APUs), chipsets, embedded processors and servers; and
  • The Graphics and Visual Solutions segment, comprised of graphic processing units (GPUs), including professional graphics, as well as revenue from semi-custom products and development and game console royalties.

Quarterly Financial Summary

  • Gross margin was 40 percent in Q2 2013.
    • Gross margin decreased sequentially. Q2 2013 gross margin included an $11 million benefit from sales of inventory that had been previously reserved in Q3 2012 and this positively impacted gross margin by 1 percentage point as compared to a similar $20 million benefit in Q1 2013 which positively impacted gross margin by 2 percentage points.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balance, including long-term marketable securities, was $1.1 billion at the end of the quarter.
  • Computing Solutions segment revenue increased 12 percent sequentially and decreased 20 percent year-over-year. The sequential increase was due to significantly higher notebook unit shipments and higher server and desktop unit shipments. The year-over-year decline was driven by lower unit shipments and microprocessor Average Selling Price (ASP).
    • Operating income was $2 million, compared with an operating loss of $39 million in Q1 2013 and operating income of $82 million in Q2 2012. Q2 2013 operating income included an $11 million benefit from sales of inventory that had been previously reserved and Q1 2013 operating income included a similar $20 million benefit.
    • Microprocessor ASP decreased sequentially and year-over-year.
  • Graphics and Visual Solutions segment revenue decreased 5 percent sequentially and decreased 13 percent year-over-year. GPU revenue was flat sequentially and declined year-over-year.
    • Operating income was breakeven compared with $16 million in Q1 2013 and $31 million in Q2 2012.
    • GPU ASP decreased sequentially and increased year-over-year.

Recent Highlights

  • AMD introduced several new client processors in the quarter:
    • The new AMD Elite Performance, AMD Mainstream and AMD Elite Mobility A-Series APUs offer dramatically increased performance and power efficiency compared to prior AMD APUs. Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Samsung have begun to roll out products based on these latest A-Series APUs.
    • The AMD Elite Mobility A-Series APU for tablets, hybrids and small form factor notebooks won the 2013 "Best Choice of Computex Taipei" award.

* The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its performance. Adjusted EBITDA for the Company is determined by adjusting operating income (loss) for depreciation and amortization, employee stock-based compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets. In addition, the Company also included the following adjustments for the applicable period: for all periods presented, except for the second quarter of 2012, the Company also included an adjustment for net restructuring and other special charges; for the second quarter of 2012, the Company included an adjustment related to a legal settlement with a third party; and for six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company also included adjustments for the limited waiver of exclusivity from GLOBALFOUNDRIES, legal settlement with a third party and costs related to acquisition of SeaMicro, Inc. 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.
** The Company also presents non-GAAP free cash flow in the earnings release as a supplemental measure of its performance. Non-GAAP free cash flow is determined by adjusting GAAP net cash provided by (used in) operating activities for capital expenditures. The Company calculates and communicates non-GAAP 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 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 free cash flow as an alternative to GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating activities. The Company has provided reconciliations within the press release and financial schedules of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
