Q2 2011 AMD Results
Revenue was $1.57 billion, down 2% compared to the first quarter of 2011 and down 5% compared to the second quarter of 2010.
Non-GAAP gross margin was 46%, up one percentage point quarter-over-quarter due to a stronger mix in margin accretive APU platforms.
Operating expenses were $606 million, less than guided due to the timing of expense recognition related to new products.
Non-GAAP operating income was $114 million and non-GAAP net income was $70 million. Both exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets of $9 million.
Non-GAAP EPS was $0.09, calculated using 743 million fully diluted shares.
Adjusted EBITDA was $205 million, up $7 million from the prior quarter due to lower operating expenses.
Q2 2011 Segment Results Computing Solutions
Computing Solutions segment revenue was $1.2 billion, flat compared to the prior quarter as higher mobile processor revenue was offset by lower server and desktop microprocessor revenue.
APUs have opened up significant opportunities within our customer base,
Computing Solutions operating income was $142 million, up $42 million from the previous quarter, primarily due to improved gross margins from a richer mix of APU sales compared to the prior quarter.
Q2 2011 Segment Results Graphics
Graphics segment revenue was $367 million, down 11% compared to the prior quarter mainly due to:
Graphics segment operating loss was $7 million, down $26 million from the prior quarter primarily due to lower revenue.
Our cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balance at the end of the quarter was $1.86 billion, up $116 million compared to the end of the first quarter of 2011. The increase is primarily due to cash generated by operations.
Accounts Receivable at the end of the quarter was $759 million, down $38 million compared to the end of the first quarter of 2011 due to a decline in revenue.
Inventory was $642 million exiting the quarter, down slightly from the prior quarter.
Long term debt as of the end of the quarter was $2.2 billion.
Non-GAAP Adjusted free cash flow was $143 million.
We will continue to be strategic in our debt reduction efforts based on generating non-GAAP free cash flow and we expect to opportunistically look to reduce our debt based on market conditions.
The following statements concerning AMD are forward-looking, and actual results could differ materially from current expectations.

To supplement the Companys financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this commentary contains non-GAAP financial measures, including for non-GAAP net income (loss) excluding GLOBALFOUDNRIES (GF) related items, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP earnings per share and non-GAAP gross margin. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect certain adjustments, and the Company has presented a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures in the tables below.
The Company also provided Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP Adjusted free cash flow as supplemental measures 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, for the first quarter of 2011 and the six months ended July 2, 2011, the Company included an adjustment related to a payment to GF and a legal settlement with a third party. For the second quarter of 2010 and the six months ended June 26, 2010, the Company included an adjustment an adjustment for certain restructuring reversals. The Company calculates and communicates Adjusted EBITDA in the financial schedules because the Companys 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 Companys 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.
Starting in the first quarter of 2010, the Company presents non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow 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 U.S. GAAP, the Company classifies funds received from the IBM Parties as debt on the balance sheet. Moreover, for cash flow purposes, these funds are classified as cash flows from financing activities. When a distributor pays the applicable IBM Party, the Company reduces the distributors accounts receivable and the corresponding debt resulting in a non-cash accounting entry. Because the Company does not receive the cash from the distributor to reduce the accounts receivable, the distributors payment is never reflected in the Companys cash flows from operating activities. Non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow for the Company was determined by adjusting GAAP net cash provided by (used in) operating activities by adding the distributors payments to the IBM Parties to GAAP net cash provided by (used in) operating activities. This amount is then further adjusted by subtracting capital expenditures. Generally, under U.S. 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 the IBM Parties. The Company calculates and communicates non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow in the financial schedules because the Companys management believes it is of importance to investors to understand the nature of these cash flows. The Companys 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 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 the Company believes it assists investors in comparing the Companys 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.
