“Third quarter results came in below our expectations due to the softening PC market and substantial inventory reduction actions across the PC supply chain," said AMD Chair and CEO Dr. Lisa Su. "Despite the challenging macro environment, we grew revenue 29% year-over-year driven by increased sales of our data center, embedded and game console products. We are confident that our leadership product portfolio, strong balance sheet, and ongoing growth opportunities in our data center and embedded businesses position us well to navigate the current market dynamics.”

Q3 2022 Financial Summary

  • Revenue of $5.6 billion increased 29% year-over-year driven by growth across the Data Center, Gaming and Embedded segments.
  • Gross margin was 42%, a decrease of 6 percentage points year-over-year, primarily due to amortization of intangible assets associated with the Xilinx acquisition. Non-GAAP gross margin was 50%, an increase of 2 percentage points year-over-year, primarily driven by higher Embedded and Data Center segment revenue. Gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin include $160 million of charges for inventory, pricing, and related reserves in the graphics and client businesses.
  • Operating loss was $64 million, compared to operating income of $948 million, or 22% of revenue, a year ago. The loss was primarily due to the amortization of intangible assets associated with the Xilinx acquisition and increased R&D investments. Non-GAAP operating income was $1.3 billion, or 23% of revenue, up from $1.1 billion or 24% a year ago primarily driven by higher revenue and gross margin partially offset by higher operating expenses.
  • Net income was $66 million compared to $923 million a year ago primarily due to the amortization of intangible assets associated with the Xilinx acquisition and increased R&D investments, partially offset by a $135 million tax benefit in the quarter. Non-GAAP net income was $1.1 billion, up from $893 million a year ago primarily driven by higher revenue and gross margin, partially offset by higher operating expenses.  
  • Diluted earnings per share was $0.04 compared to $0.75 a year ago primarily due to lower net income. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.67 compared to $0.73 a year ago primarily due to lower Client segment revenue.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $5.6 billion at the end of the quarter. The company repaid the $312 million 7.50% Senior Notes that matured in August and repurchased $617 million of common stock during the quarter.
  • Cash from operations was $965 million in the quarter, compared to $849 million a year ago. Free cash flow was $842 million in the quarter compared to $764 million a year ago.
  • Goodwill and acquisition-related intangible assets associated with the acquisitions of Xilinx and Pensando were $49.3 billion.

Quarterly Segment Financial Summary

  • Prior period results have been conformed to the current reporting segments for comparison purposes.  
  • Data Center segment revenue was $1.6 billion, up 45% year-over-year driven by strong sales of EPYC™ server processors. Operating income was $505 million, or 31% of revenue, compared to $308 million or 28% a year ago. The operating income and margin increases were primarily driven by higher revenue, partially offset by higher operating expenses.
  • Client segment revenue was $1.0 billion, down 40% year-over-year due to reduced processor shipments resulting from a weak PC market and a significant inventory correction across the PC supply chain. Client processor ASP increased year-over-year driven primarily by a richer mix of Ryzen™ desktop processor sales. Operating loss was $26 million, compared to operating income of $490 million or 29% a year ago. The decrease was primarily due to lower revenue.
  • Gaming segment revenue was $1.6 billion, up 14% year-over-year driven by higher semi-custom product sales partially offset by lower graphics revenue. Operating income was $142 million, or 9% of revenue, compared to $231 million or 16% a year ago. The decrease was primarily due to lower graphics revenue and inventory, pricing and related charges in the graphics business. Operating margin was lower primarily due to lower graphics revenue and higher operating expenses.
  • Embedded segment revenue was $1.3 billion, up 1,549% year-over-year driven primarily by the inclusion of Xilinx embedded product revenue. Operating income was $635 million, or 49% of revenue, compared to $23 million or 30% a year ago. Operating income and margin increases were primarily driven by higher revenue.
  • All Other operating loss was $1.3 billion as compared to $104 million a year ago primarily due to amortization of intangible assets largely associated with the Xilinx acquisition.

Stock-based compensation  269   99   702   267 
Depreciation and amortization  163   97   450   289 
Amortization of acquired intangible assets  1,002      2,504

Adjusted EBITDA $1,427  $1,152  $5,533  $3,030 
                 
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 in investee, stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization expense and acquisition-related costs. The Company also included amortization of acquired intangible assets for the three months and nine months ended September 24, 2022. 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 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.
