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.
