Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)
NOTE 1 – The Company
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. is a global semiconductor company. References herein to AMD or the Company mean Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries. AMD’s products include x86 microprocessors (CPUs), accelerated processing units which integrate microprocessors and graphics (APUs), discrete graphics processing units (GPUs), semi-custom System-on-Chip (SOC) products and chipsets for the PC, gaming, datacenter and embedded markets. In addition, AMD provides development services and sells or licenses portions of its intellectual property portfolio.
NOTE 2 – Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of AMD have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 26, 2021 shown in this report are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full year ending December 25, 2021 or any other future period. In the opinion of the Company’s management, the information contained herein reflects all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s results of operations, financial position, cash flows and stockholders’ equity. All such adjustments are of a normal, recurring nature. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 26, 2020. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.
The Company uses a 52 or 53 week fiscal year ending on the last Saturday in December. The three and six months ended June 26, 2021 and June 27, 2020 each consisted of 13 weeks and 26 weeks, respectively.
Significant Accounting Policies. There have been no material changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies in Note 2 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, of the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 26, 2020.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which simplifies various aspects of accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. The guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020. The Company adopted this standard in the first quarter of 2021, which resulted in the recognition of an immaterial deferred tax liability.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity. This standard simplifies the accounting for convertible instruments and the application of the derivatives scope exception for contracts in an entity’s own equity by eliminating some of the models that require separating embedded conversion features from convertible instruments. The guidance also addresses how convertible instruments are accounted for in the diluted earnings per share calculation and enhances disclosures about the terms of convertible instruments and contracts in an entity’s own equity. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, and can be adopted through either a modified retrospective method with a cumulative effect adjustment to opening accumulated deficit or a full retrospective method. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to result in a material impact to its consolidated financial statements.
Although there are several other new accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB, the Company does not believe any of these accounting pronouncements had or will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 10 – Income Taxes
The Company recorded an income tax provision of $113 million and $202 million for the three and six months ended June 26, 2021, respectively, representing effective tax rates of 13.7% and 13.8%, respectively. The Company recorded an income tax provision of $4 million and $10 million for the three and six months ended June 27, 2020, respectively, representing effective tax rates of 2.5% and 3.0%, respectively.
The increase in income tax expense and effective tax rate was due to significantly higher income in the United States in the current period, partially offset by the foreign-derived intangible income benefit, research and development tax credits, and excess tax benefit for stock-based compensation. The lower income tax expense and effective tax rate for the prior year period were due to a full valuation allowance in the United States during 2020, a significant portion of which was released by the Company in the fourth quarter of 2020.
15

Table of Contents
The Company’s effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 26, 2021 and the three and six months ended June 27, 2020 was lower than the United States federal statutory rate primarily due to the tax benefits recognized for the three and six months ended June 26, 2021 discussed above, and due to the maintenance of a full valuation allowance during the three and six months ended June 27, 2020.
As of June 26, 2021, the Company continues to maintain a valuation allowance for certain federal, state, and foreign tax attributes. The federal valuation allowance maintained is due to limitations under Internal Revenue Code Section 382 or 383, separate return loss year rules, or dual consolidated loss rules. The state and foreign valuation allowance maintained is due to a lack of sufficient sources of taxable income.
NOTE 11 – Segment Reporting
Management, including the Chief Operating Decision Maker, who is the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, reviews and assesses operating performance using segment net revenue and operating income (loss). These performance measures include the allocation of expenses to the operating segments based on management’s judgment. The Company has the following two reportable segments:
the Computing and Graphics segment, which primarily includes desktop and notebook microprocessors, accelerated processing units that integrate microprocessors and graphics, chipsets, discrete graphics processing units (GPUs), data center and professional GPUs and development services. From time to time, the Company may also sell or license portions of its IP portfolio.
the Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment, which primarily includes server and embedded processors, semi-custom System-on-Chip (SoC) products, development services and technology for game consoles. From time to time, the Company may also sell or license portions of its IP portfolio.
In addition to these reportable segments, the Company has an All Other category, which is not a reportable segment. This category primarily includes certain expenses and credits that are not allocated to any of the reportable segments because management does not consider these expenses and credits in evaluating the performance of the reportable segments. This category primarily includes employee stock-based compensation expense and acquisition-related costs.
The following table provides a summary of net revenue and operating income by segment:

Specifically, GF agreed to a minimum annual capacity allocation to the Company for years 2022, 2023 and 2024. The A&R Seventh Amendment also removes all prior exclusivity commitments and provides the Company with full flexibility to contract with any wafer foundry with respect to all products manufactured at any technology node. Further, the parties agreed to pricing and annual wafer purchase targets for years 2022, 2023 and 2024, and the Company agreed to pre-pay GF certain amounts for those wafers in 2022 and 2023. If the Company does not meet the annual wafer purchase target for any of these years, it will be required to pay to GF a portion of the difference between the actual wafer purchases and the wafer purchase target for that year.
Contingencies
City of Pontiac Police and Fire Retirement System Litigation
On September 29, 2020, the City of Pontiac Police and Fire Retirement System, an AMD shareholder, filed a shareholder derivative complaint (the “Complaint”) against AMD and the members of its Board of Directors (collectively, “Defendants”) in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. See City of Pontiac Police and Fire Retirement System v. Caldwell, et al., No. 5:20-cv-6794 (N.D. Cal.). The Complaint alleges that Defendants breached their fiduciary duties, violated Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act of 1934, and were unjustly enriched by misrepresenting the Company’s commitment to diversity, particularly with respect to the composition of the membership of AMD’s Board of Directors and senior leadership team. On December 18, 2020, Defendants filed a motion to dismiss the Complaint. On February 12, 2021, Plaintiff filed an opposition to Defendants’ motion to dismiss, and on March 12, 2021, Defendants filed a reply brief in support of the motion to dismiss. On July 1, 2021, the Court granted Defendants’ motion to dismiss, without prejudice.
Based upon information presently known to management, the Company believes that the potential liability, if any, will not have a material adverse effect on its financial condition, cash flows or results of operations.
Future Link Systems Litigation
On December 21, 2020, Future Link Systems, LLC filed a patent infringement complaint against the Company in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas. Future Link Systems alleges that the Company infringes three U.S. patents: 7,983,888 (related to simulated PCI express circuitry); 6,363,466 (related to out of order data transactions); and 6,622,108 (related to interconnect testing). Future Link Systems seeks unspecified monetary damages, enhanced damages, interest, fees, expenses, costs, and injunctive relief against the Company. On March 22, 2021, the Company filed its answer to Future Link Systems’ complaint and also filed counterclaims based on Future Link Systems’ breach of the parties’ pre-suit non-disclosure agreement. On April 12, 2021, Future Link Systems filed its answer to the Company’s counterclaims. On June 3, 2021, the Company filed a motion to transfer the case to Austin, Texas.

Based upon information presently known to management, the Company believes that the potential liability, if any, will not have a material adverse effect on its financial condition, cash flows or results of operations.
Other Legal Matters
The Company is a defendant or plaintiff in various actions that arose in the normal course of business. With respect to these matters, based on the management’s current knowledge, the Company believes that the amount or range of reasonably possible loss, if any, will not, either individually or in the aggregate, have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.
NOTE 13 – Pending Acquisition
On October 26, 2020, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement), with Thrones Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (Merger sub), and Xilinx, Inc. (Xilinx), whereby Merger Sub will merge with and into Xilinx (the Merger), with Xilinx surviving such Merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Under the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the Effective Time), each share of common stock of Xilinx (Xilinx Common Stock) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than treasury shares and any shares of Xilinx Common Stock held directly by the Company or Merger Sub) will be converted into the right to receive 1.7234 fully paid and non-assessable shares of common stock of the Company and, if applicable, cash in lieu of fractional shares, subject to any applicable withholding. As of the signing of the Merger Agreement, the transaction was valued at $35 billion. The actual valuation of the transaction could differ significantly from the estimated amount due to movements in the price of the Company’s common stock, the number of shares of Xilinx common stock outstanding on the closing date of the Merger and other factors.
Under the Merger Agreement, the Company will be required to pay a termination fee to Xilinx equal to $1.5 billion if the Merger Agreement is terminated in certain circumstances, including if the Merger Agreement is terminated because the Company’s board of directors has changed its recommendation. The Company will be required to pay a termination fee equal to $1 billion if the Merger Agreement is terminated in certain circumstances related to the failure to obtain required regulatory approvals prior to October 26, 2021 (subject to automatic extension first to January 26, 2022 and then to April 26, 2022, in each case, to the extent the regulatory closing conditions remain outstanding).
On April 7, 2021, the Company’s and Xilinx’s stockholders voted to approve their respective proposals relating to the pending acquisition of Xilinx by the Company. Effective as of June 29, 2021, the United Kingdom’s Competition and Markets Authority, and effective as of June 30, 2021, the European Commission issued approvals of the Merger. The completion of the Merger remains subject to other closing conditions, including the receipt of certain approvals and clearances required under the competition laws of certain other foreign jurisdictions. The Merger is subject to customary conditions including regulatory approval and is currently expected to occur by the end of calendar year 2021.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes included in this report and our audited consolidated financial statements and related notes as of December 26, 2020 and December 28, 2019, and for each of the three years for the period ended December 26, 2020 as filed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 26, 2020.
Overview
We are a global semiconductor company. Our products include x86 microprocessors (CPUs), accelerated processing units which integrate microprocessors and graphics (APUs), discrete graphics processing units (GPUs), semi-custom System-on-Chip (SOC) products and chipsets for the PC, gaming, datacenter and embedded markets. In addition, we provide development services and sell or license portions of our intellectual property portfolio.
In this section, we will describe the general financial condition and the results of operations of Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (collectively, “us,” “our” or “AMD”), including a discussion of our results of operations for the three and six months ended June 26, 2021 compared to the prior year period, an analysis of changes in our financial condition and a discussion of our contractual obligations.
Net revenue for the three months ended June 26, 2021 was $3.9 billion, a 99% increase compared to the prior year period. The increase was due to a 65% increase in Computing and Graphics net revenue and a 183% increase in Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom net revenue. The increase in Computing and Graphics segment net revenue was primarily due to higher sales of our Ryzen™ processors and Radeon™ products. The increase in
19

Table of Contents
Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom net revenue was primarily due to higher semi-custom revenue and EPYC™ server processor revenue.
Gross margin for the three months ended June 26, 2021 was 48% compared to gross margin of 44% for the prior year period. The increase in gross margin was primarily driven by a richer mix of sales, including high-end Ryzen, Radeon and EPYC processor sales.
Our operating income for the three months ended June 26, 2021 was $831 million compared to operating income of $173 million for the prior year period. The increase in operating income was primarily driven by strong revenue growth which more than offset higher operating expenses.
Our net income for the three months ended June 26, 2021 was $710 million compared to net income of $157 million for the prior year period. The increase in net income was primarily driven by higher operating income, partially offset by a higher income tax provision.
Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of June 26, 2021 were $3.8 billion, compared to $2.3 billion as of December 26, 2020. The aggregate principal amount of our outstanding debt obligations was $313 million and $338 million as of June 26, 2021 and December 26, 2020, respectively.
During the second quarter of 2021, we introduced the new AMD Radeon RX 6000M Series Mobile Graphics designed for high-performance gaming laptops and we announced the AMD Advantage™ Design Framework to deliver best-in-class gaming experiences. AMD Advantage systems combine AMD Radeon RX 6000M Series Mobile Graphics, AMD Radeon Software and AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile Processors with AMD smart technologies. We also introduced our AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution software for game developers to help deliver a high-quality, high-resolution gaming experience. In June 2021, we announced our AMD Radeon PRO W6000 series workstation graphics for professional users who have demanding architectural design workloads, ultra-high resolution media projects, complex design and engineering simulations and advanced image and video editing applications.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to focus on the health and safety of our employees. We monitor and take safety measures to protect our employees who are in the office and support those employees who work from home so that they can be productive. Our offices remain open to enable critical on-site business functions in accordance with local government guidelines. The majority of our employees in China and Singapore work on site subject to local government health measures and in July 2021, our US employees began to return to the office in accordance with health and safety protocols. In the other geographies in which we operate, the majority of our employees continued to work from home during the second quarter of 2021. The current COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our business operations and practices, and while we expect that it may continue to impact our business, we experienced limited financial disruption during the second quarter of 2021.
As part of our strategy to establish AMD as the industry’s high performance computing leader, we announced in October 2020 that we entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Xilinx, Inc. in an all-stock transaction. On April 7, 2021, our stockholders and Xilinx’s stockholders voted to approve their respective proposals relating to the pending acquisition of Xilinx by AMD. Effective as of June 29, 2021, the United Kingdom’s Competition and Markets Authority, and effective as of June 30, 2021, the European Commission issued approvals of the Merger. The completion of the Merger remains subject to other closing conditions, including the receipt of certain approvals and clearances required under the competition laws of certain other foreign jurisdictions. The closing of the Merger is subject to customary conditions, including regulatory approval, and is currently expected to occur by the end of calendar year 2021.
In May 2021, we announced that our Board of Directors approved a new stock repurchase program to purchase up to $4 billion of our outstanding common stock in the open market. During the three and six months ended June 26, 2021, we repurchased 3 million shares of our common stock under the Repurchase Program, for a total cash outlay of $256 million. As of June 26, 2021, $3.7 billion remains available for future stock repurchases under this program. The repurchase program does not obligate us to acquire any common stock, has no termination date and may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
Also in May 2021, we entered into an amendment (the A&R Seventh Amendment) to the Wafer Supply Agreement (WSA) with GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF) to extend GF’s capacity commitment and pricing for wafers purchased at the 12 nm and 14 nm technology nodes by us through December 31, 2024. Specifically, GF agreed to a minimum annual capacity allocation to the Company for years 2022, 2023 and 2024. The A&R Seventh Amendment also removes all prior exclusivity commitments and provides us with full flexibility to contract with any wafer foundry with

respect to all products manufactured at any technology node. Further, the parties agreed to pricing and annual wafer purchase targets for years 2022, 2023 and 2024, and we agreed to pre-pay GF certain amounts for those wafers in 2022 and 2023. If we do not meet the annual wafer purchase target for any of these years, we will be required to pay to GF a portion of the difference between the actual wafer purchases and the wafer purchase target for that year.
We intend the discussion of our financial condition and results of operations that follows to provide information that will assist in understanding our financial statements, the changes in certain key items in those financial statements from period to period, the primary factors that resulted in those changes, and how certain accounting principles, policies and estimates affect our financial statements.
Results of Operations
We report our financial performance based on the following two reportable segments: the Computing and Graphics segment and the Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment.
Additional information on our reportable segments is contained in Note 11—Segment Reporting of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Part I, Financial Information of this Form 10-Q).
Our operating results tend to vary seasonally. Historically, our net revenue has been generally higher in the second half of the year than in the first half of the year, although market conditions and product transitions could impact this trend.
The following table provides a summary of net revenue and operating income (loss) by segment:

Total operating income$831 $173 $1,493 $350 
Computing and Graphics

Computing and Graphics net revenue of $2.3 billion for the three months ended June 26, 2021 increased by 65%, compared to net revenue of $1.4 billion for the prior year period, primarily as a result of a 5% increase in unit shipments and a 58% increase in average selling price. Computing and Graphics net revenue of $4.4 billion for the six months ended June 26, 2021 increased by 55%, compared to net revenue of $2.8 billion for the prior year period, primarily as a result of a 9% increase in unit shipments and a 44% increase in average selling price. The increase in unit shipments for both periods was primarily due to higher demand for our Ryzen processors. The increase in average selling price for both periods was primarily driven by a richer mix of client and graphics processors.
Computing and Graphics operating income was $526 million for the three months ended June 26, 2021, compared to operating income of $200 million for the prior year period. Computing and Graphics operating income was $1.0 billion for the six months ended June 26, 2021, compared to operating income of $462 million for the prior year period. The increase in operating income for both periods was primarily due to higher revenue which more than offset higher operating expenses. Operating expenses increased for the reasons outlined under “Expenses” below.

Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom net revenue of $2.9 billion for the six months ended June 26, 2021 increased by 223%, compared to net revenue of $913 million for the prior year period. The increase for both periods was primarily driven by higher semi-custom revenue and higher sales of our EPYC server processors.
Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom operating income was $398 million for the three months ended June 26, 2021 compared to operating income of $33 million for the prior year period. Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom operating income was $675 million for the six months ended June 26, 2021 compared to operating income of $7 million for the prior year period. The increase in operating income for both periods was due to higher revenue which more than offset higher operating expenses. Operating expenses increased for the reasons outlined under “Expenses” below.
All Other
All Other operating loss of $93 million for the three months ended June 26, 2021 consisted of $83 million of stock-based compensation expense and $10 million of acquisition-related costs. All Other operating loss of $60 million for the prior year period consisted of stock-based compensation expense.
All Other operating loss of $193 million for the six months ended June 26, 2021 consisted of $168 million of stock-based compensation expense and $25 million of acquisition-related costs. All Other operating loss of $119 million for the prior year period consisted of stock-based compensation expense.
International Sales
International sales as a percentage of net revenue were 74% and 79% for the three months ended June 26, 2021 and June 27, 2020, respectively. International sales as a percentage of net revenue were 75% and 81% for the six months ended June 26, 2021 and June 27, 2020, respectively. We expect that international sales will continue to be a significant portion of total sales in the foreseeable future. Substantially all of our sales transactions were denominated in U.S. dollars.

Gross Margin
Gross margin was 48% and 44% for the three months ended June 26, 2021 and June 27, 2020, respectively. Gross margin was 47% and 45% for the six months ended June 26, 2021 and June 27, 2020, respectively. The increase for both periods was primarily driven by a richer mix of sales, including high-end Ryzen, Radeon and EPYC processor sales.
Expenses
Research and Development Expenses
Research and development expenses of $659 million for the three months ended June 26, 2021 increased by $199 million, or 43%, compared to $460 million for the prior year period. Research and development expenses of $1,269 million for the six months ended June 26, 2021 increased by $367 million, or 41%, compared to $902 million for the prior year period. The increase for both periods was primarily driven by an increase in product development costs in both the Computing and Graphics and Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segments due to an increase in headcount and higher annual employee incentives driven by our improved financial performance.
Marketing, General and Administrative Expenses
Marketing, general and administrative expenses of $341 million for the three months ended June 26, 2021 increased by $126 million, or 59%, compared to $215 million for the prior year period. Marketing, general and administrative expenses of $660 million for the six months ended June 26, 2021 increased by $246 million, or 59%, compared to $414 million for the prior year period. The increase for both periods was primarily due to an increase in go-to-market activities in both the Computing and Graphics and Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segments, and an increase in headcount and higher annual employee incentives driven by our improved financial performance. In addition, in connection with our pending acquisition of Xilinx, Inc., we incurred $10 million and $25 million of acquisition-related costs for the three and six months ended June 26, 2021, respectively.
Licensing Gain
During the three and six months ended June 26, 2021, we recognized $1 million and $5 million, respectively, of royalty income associated with the licensed IP to the THATIC JV.
Interest Expense
Interest expense for the three months ended June 26, 2021 was $10 million compared to $14 million for the prior year period. Interest expense for the six months ended June 26, 2021 was $19 million compared to $27 million for the prior year period. The decrease for both periods was due to lower debt balances as a result of conversions by the holders of our 2.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026.
Other Income (Expense), Net
Other income, net for the three months ended June 26, 2021, was zero compared to $1 million of Other income, net for the prior year period. Other expense, net was $11 million for the six months ended June 26, 2021, compared to $5 million of Other income, net for the prior year period. The change was primarily due to an impairment charge of $8 million associated with an equity investment and a loss on conversion of our convertible debt instruments of $6 million in the current period.
Income Tax Provision
We recorded an income tax provision of $113 million and $4 million for the three months ended June 26, 2021 and June 27, 2020, respectively, representing effective tax rates of 13.7% and 2.5%, respectively.
The increase in income tax expense and effective tax rate in the current year period was due to significantly higher income in the United States, partially offset by the foreign-derived intangible income benefit, research and development tax credits, and excess tax benefit for stock-based compensation. The lower income tax expense and effective tax rate for the prior year period was due to a full valuation allowance in the United States during 2020, a significant portion of which was released by us in the fourth quarter of 2020.
As of June 26, 2021, we continue to maintain a valuation allowance for certain federal, state, and foreign tax attributes. The federal valuation allowance maintained is due to limitations under Internal Revenue Code Section
23

Table of Contents
382 or 383, separate return loss year rules, or dual consolidated loss rules. The state and foreign valuation allowance maintained is due to lack of sufficient sources of taxable income.
FINANCIAL CONDITION
Liquidity and Capital Resources    
As of June 26, 2021, our cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $3.8 billion, compared to $2.3 billion as of December 26, 2020. The percentage of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments held domestically were 93% and 94% as of June 26, 2021 and December 26, 2020, respectively.
Our operating, investing and financing activities for the six months ended June 26, 2021 compared to the prior year period are as described below:

Our aggregate principal debt obligations were $313 million and $338 million as of June 26, 2021 and December 26, 2020, respectively.
We believe our cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments along with our Revolving Credit Facility will be sufficient to fund current and long-term operations, including capital expenditures, over the next 12 months and beyond. We believe we will be able to access the capital markets should we require additional funds. However, we cannot assure that such funds will be available on favorable terms, or at all.
Operating Activities
Our working capital cash inflows and outflows from operations are primarily cash collections from our customers, payments for inventory purchases and payments for employee-related expenditures.
Net cash provided by operating activities was $1.9 billion in the six months ended June 26, 2021, primarily due to our net income of $1.3 billion, adjusted for non-cash and non-operating charges of $562 million and net cash inflows of $23 million from changes in our operating assets and liabilities. The primary drivers of the changes in operating assets and liabilities included a $346 million increase in accounts payable due to an increase in inventory purchases, a $90 million increase in accrued liabilities and other driven primarily by higher customer-related accruals, partially offset by a $366 million increase in inventories driven by an increase in product build in support of customer demand.
Net cash used in operating activities was $178 million for the six months ended June 27, 2020, primarily due to our net income of $319 million, adjusted for non-cash and non-operating charges of $321 million and net cash outflows of $462 million from changes in our operating assets and liabilities. The primary drivers of the changes in operating assets and liabilities included a $342 million increase in inventories driven by an increase in product build in support of customer demand, and a $201 million decrease in accounts payable due to timing of payments to our suppliers.
Investing Activities
Net cash used in investing activities was $603 million for the six months ended June 26, 2021 which primarily consisted of $1.1 billion for purchases of short-term investments and $130 million for purchases of property and equipment, partially offset by $655 million for maturities of short-term investments.
Net cash used in investing activities was $109 million for the six months ended June 27, 2020 which primarily consisted of $146 million for purchases of property and equipment and $55 million for purchases of short-term investments, partially offset by $92 million for maturities of short-term investments.

Financing Activities
Net cash used in financing activities was $219 million for the six months ended June 26, 2021, which primarily consisted of common stock repurchases of $256 million and repurchases for tax withholding on employee equity plans of $14 million, partially offset by a cash inflow of $51 million from issuance of common stock under our employee equity plans.
Net cash provided by financing activities was $240 million for the six months ended June 27, 2020, which primarily consisted of proceeds from short-term borrowing of $200 million and from the issuance of common stock under our employee equity plans of $42 million.

Critical Accounting Estimates
Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP). The preparation of our financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts in our condensed consolidated financial statements. We evaluate our estimates on an on-going basis, including those related to our revenue, inventories, goodwill and income taxes. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities. Although actual results have historically been reasonably consistent with management’s expectations, the actual results may differ from these estimates or our estimates may be affected by different assumptions or conditions.
Management believes there have been no significant changes for the three and six months ended June 26, 2021 to the items that we disclosed as our critical accounting estimates in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 26, 2020.

There have not been any material changes in interest rate risk, default risk or foreign exchange risk since December 26, 2020.

ITEM 4.CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports made under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and our management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.
As of June 26, 2021, the end of the period covered by this report, we carried out an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based on the foregoing, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.
There was no change in our internal controls over financial reporting for the three months ended June 26, 2021 that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.
