Q2 2020 Results

  • Revenue was $1.93 billion, up 26 percent year-over-year primarily driven by higher Computing and Graphics segment revenue. Revenue was up 8 percent quarter-over-quarter primarily driven by higher Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment revenue.
  • Gross margin was 44 percent, up 3 percentage points year-over-year and down 2 percentage points quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by Ryzen™ and EPYC™ processor sales. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was due to increased semi-custom product sales.

Non-GAAP operating income was $233 million compared to operating income of $111 million a year ago and $236 million in the prior quarter. Operating income improved year-over-year primarily driven by revenue growth and a greater percentage of Ryzen and EPYC processor sales.
  • Net income was $157 million compared to net income of $35 million a year ago and $162 million in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP net income was $216 million compared to net income of $92 million a year ago and $222 million in the prior quarter.

    • Client processor average selling price (ASP) was up year-over-year driven by Ryzen processor sales. Client processor ASP was down quarter-over-quarter due to a higher percentage of Ryzen mobile processor sales.
    • GPU ASP was lower year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter due to lower channel sales. 
    • Operating income was $200 million compared to $22 million a year ago and $262 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase was driven by higher revenue. The quarter-over-quarter decline was due to higher operating expenses and lower revenue.
  • Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment revenue was $565 million, down 4 percent year-over-year and up 62 percent quarter-over-quarter. Revenue was lower year-over-year due to lower semi-custom product sales largely offset by higher EPYC processor sales.

Current Outlook

AMD’s outlook statements are based on current expectations and contemplate the current COVID-19 environment, global economic backdrop and customer demand signals. The following statements are forward-looking, and actual results could differ materially depending on market conditions, COVID-19 factors and the factors set forth under “Cautionary Statement” below.

For the third quarter of 2020, AMD expects revenue to be approximately $2.55 billion, plus or minus $100 million, an increase of approximately 42 percent year-over-year and 32 percent sequentially. The year-over-year and sequential increases are expected to be primarily driven by Ryzen and EPYC processor sales and next generation semi-custom products. AMD expects non-GAAP gross margin to be approximately 44 percent in the third quarter of 2020. Gross margin is expected to increase year-over-year primarily driven by Ryzen and EPYC processor sales.

*   In this earnings press release, in addition to GAAP financial results, AMD has provided non-GAAP financial measures including non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect certain adjustments as presented in the tables in this earnings press release. AMD uses a normalized tax rate in its computation of the non-GAAP income tax provision to provide better consistency across the reporting periods. For fiscal 2020, AMD uses a projected non-GAAP tax rate, which excludes the direct tax impacts of pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments, of approximately 3%, reflecting currently available information. AMD has also provided adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow as supplemental non-GAAP measures of its performance. These items are defined in the footnotes to the selected corporate data tables provided at the end of this earnings press release. AMD is providing these financial measures because it believes this non-GAAP presentation makes it easier for investors to compare its operating results for current and historical periods and also because AMD believes it assists investors in comparing AMD’s performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that it does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance and for the other reasons described in the footnotes to the selected data tables. Refer to the data tables at the end of this earnings press release.

  * The Company presents “Adjusted EBITDA” as a supplemental measure of its performance. Adjusted EBITDA for the Company is determined by adjusting GAAP net income for interest expense, other income (expense), net, income tax provision (benefit), equity income (loss) on investee, stock-based compensation, and depreciation and amortization expense. The Company also included a loss contingency on legal matter in the three and six months ended June 29, 2019. The Company calculates and presents Adjusted EBITDA because 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 income 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 that can affect cash flows.  
                   
  ** The Company also presents free cash flow as a supplemental Non-GAAP measure of its performance. Free cash flow is determined by adjusting GAAP net cash provided by (used in) operating activities for capital expenditures. The Company calculates and communicates free cash flow in the financial earnings press release because management believes it is of importance to investors to understand the nature of these cash flows. The Company’s calculation of 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 free cash flow as an alternative to GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating activities.  
                   
    The Company has provided reconciliations within the earnings press release of these Non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
