TI reports third quarter 2020 financial results and shareholder returns

DALLAS, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (Nasdaq: TXN) today reported third quarter revenue of $3.82 billion, net income of $1.35 billion and earnings per share of $1.45.

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

  • "Revenue increased 18% sequentially with notable strength from the rebound of automotive demand and growing demand from personal electronics. Revenue increased 1% from the same quarter a year ago.
  • "In our core businesses, Analog revenue grew 18% and Embedded Processing grew 19% sequentially. From a year ago, Analog revenue grew 7% and Embedded Processing declined 10%.
  • "Our cash flow from operations of $5.8 billion for the trailing 12 months again underscored the strength of our business model. Free cash flow for the same period was $5.2 billion and 38% of revenue. This reflects the quality of our product portfolio, as well as the efficiency of our manufacturing strategy, including the benefit of 300-millimeter Analog production.
  • "We have returned $6.4 billion to owners in the past 12 months through stock repurchases and dividends. Over the same period, our dividends represented 64% of free cash flow, underscoring their sustainability. In September, we announced we would increase our dividend by 13%. Together, our stock repurchases and dividends reflect our continued commitment to return all free cash flow to our owners.
  • "TI's fourth quarter outlook is for revenue in the range of $3.41 billion to $3.69 billion, and earnings per share between $1.20 and $1.40."

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

Compared with the year-ago quarter:

Analog: (includes Power and Signal Chain)

  • Revenue increased in Signal Chain and Power.
  • Operating profit increased due to higher revenue and associated gross profit.

Embedded Processing: (includes Connected Microcontrollers and Processors)

  • Revenue decreased in both product lines.
  • Operating profit decreased due to lower revenue and associated gross profit.

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

  • Revenue decreased $72 million, and operating profit decreased $23 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).

We believe that free cash flow and the associated ratios provide insight into our liquidity, our cash-generating capability and the amount of cash potentially available to return to shareholders, as well as insight into our 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 we use to describe the estimated annual effective tax rate, a GAAP measure that by definition does not include discrete tax items. We believe the term annual operating tax rate helps differentiate from the effective tax rate, which includes discrete tax items.
