Quarterly Financial Summary

  • Gross margin was 15 percent. Non-GAAP gross margin was 39 percent, a sequential increase of 8 percent. Q3 2012 gross margin of 31 percent was adversely impacted by an inventory write-down of approximately $100 million. Fourth quarter gross margin was positively impacted by the sales of higher priced desktop microprocessors.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balance, including long-term marketable securities, was $1.2 billion at the end of the quarter.
  • AMD announced restructuring actions and operational efficiencies in Q4 2012, resulting in a net restructuring charge of $90 million in the quarter, which includes costs related to actions taken in Q4 2012 as well as an estimate of the expected costs related to Q1 2013 workforce reductions.
  • Computing Solutions segment revenue decreased 11 percent sequentially and 37 percent year-over-year. The sequential and year-over-year decreases were primarily driven by lower microprocessor unit volume shipments.
    • Operating loss was $323 million, compared with an operating loss of $114 million in Q3 2012 and operating income of $165 million in Q4 2011. Q4 2012 operating loss increased $209 million sequentially primarily due to the impact of a Lower of Cost or Market (LCM) charge related to the GLOBLFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF) take-or-pay obligation of $273 million. The charge was previously expected to be $165 million.
    • Microprocessor ASP increased sequentially and decreased year-over-year.
  • Graphics segment revenue decreased 5 percent sequentially and 15 percent year-over-year. Graphics processor unit (GPU) revenue decreased sequentially and year-over-year due to lower unit volume shipments.
    • Operating income was $22 million, compared with $18 million in Q3 2012 and $27 million in Q4 2011.
    • GPU ASP was flat sequentially and increased year-over-year.

    * 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 the fourth quarter of 2012,
    the Company also included adjustments for the lower of cost or market
    charge (LCM Charge) related to GF take-or-pay obligation and net
    restructuring charges; for the third quarter of 2012 and the fourth
    quarter of 2011, the Company also included an adjustment for net
    restructuring charges; for 2012, the Company also included adjustments
    for the LCM Charge, a charge related to the limited waiver of
    exclusivity from GF, a legal settlement with a third party, net
    restructuring charges and costs related to the acquisition of SeaMicro;
    and for 2011, the Company also included adjustments related to a
    payment to GF, a legal settlement with a third party and net
    restructuring charges. 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 adjusted free cash flow in the
    earnings release as a supplemental measure of its performance. In 2008
    and 2009, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively,
    the "AMD Parties") entered into supplier agreements with IBM Credit LLC
    and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, the "IBM Parties").
    Pursuant to these supplier agreements, the AMD Parties sold to the IBM
    Parties invoices of selected distributor customers. Because the Company
    does not recognize revenue until its distributors sell its products to
    their customers, under GAAP, the Company classified funds received from
    the IBM Parties as debt on the balance sheet. Moreover, for cash flow
    purposes, these funds were classified as cash flows from financing
    activities. When a distributor paid the applicable IBM Party, the
    Company reduced the distributor's accounts receivable and the
    corresponding debt resulted in a noncash accounting entry. Because the
    Company did not receive the cash from the distributor to reduce the
    accounts receivable, the distributor's payment was not reflected in the
    Company's cash flows from operating activities. Non-GAAP adjusted free
    cash flow for the Company was determined by adding the distributors'
    payments to the IBM Parties to GAAP net cash provided by (used in)
    operating activities. This amount was then further adjusted by
    subtracting capital expenditures. Generally, under GAAP, the reduction
    in accounts receivable is assumed to be a source of operating cash
    flows. Therefore, the Company believes that treating the payments from
    its distributor customers to the IBM Parties as if the Company actually
    received the cash from the distributor and then used that cash to pay
    down the debt is more reflective of the economic substance of the
    transaction. On February 11, 2011, the Company terminated its supplier
    agreements with IBM Parties. As a result, as of the end of the second
    quarter of 2011, there were no outstanding invoices relating to the
    financing arrangement with the IBM Parties, and starting from the third
    quarter of 2011, the Company no longer makes quarterly adjustments for
    distributors' payments to the IBM Parties to its GAAP net cash provided
    by (used in) operating activities when calculating non-GAAP adjusted
    free cash flow. The Company calculates and communicates non-GAAP
    adjusted 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 adjusted 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 adjusted free cash flow as an
    alternative to GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating or
    financing 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.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
Hadoop as a Service (as offered by handful of niche vendors now) is a cloud computing solution that makes medium and large-scale data processing accessible, easy, fast and inexpensive. In his session at Big Data Expo, Kumar Ramamurthy, Vice President and Chief Technologist, EIM & Big Data, at Virtusa, will discuss how this is achieved by eliminating the operational challenges of running Hadoop, so one can focus on business growth. The fragmented Hadoop distribution world and various PaaS solutions that provide a Hadoop flavor either make choices for customers very flexible in the name of opti...

The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...
