“Our business accelerated in the third quarter as strong demand for our PC, gaming and data center products drove record quarterly revenue,” said Dr. Lisa Su, AMD president and CEO. “We reported our fourth straight quarter with greater than 25 percent year-over-year revenue growth, highlighting our significant customer momentum. We are well positioned to continue delivering best-in-class growth as we further extend our leadership product portfolio with the launches of our next generation Ryzen, Radeon and EPYC processors.”

Q3 2020 Results

  • Revenue was $2.80 billion, up 56 percent year-over-year and 45 percent quarter-over-quarter driven by higher revenue in both the Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom and Computing and Graphics segments.
  • Gross margin was 44 percent, up 1 percentage point year-over-year and flat quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by EPYC and Ryzen processor sales. Gross margin was flat quarter-over-quarter as an increase of Ryzen and EPYC processor sales was offset by a higher percentage of semi-custom revenue.
  • Operating income was $449 million compared to $186 million a year ago and $173 million in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP operating income was $525 million compared to $240 million a year ago and $233 million in the prior quarter. Operating income improvements were primarily driven by revenue growth, including an increase in Ryzen and EPYC processor sales and semi-custom product sales.
  • Net income was $390 million compared to $120 million a year ago and $157 million in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP net income was $501 million compared to $219 million a year ago and $216 million in the prior quarter.
  • Diluted earnings per share was $0.32 compared to $0.11 a year ago and $0.13 in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.41 compared to $0.18 a year ago and $0.18 in the prior quarter.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $1.77 billion at the end of the quarter.

Quarterly Financial Segment Summary

  • Computing and Graphics segment revenue was $1.67 billion, up 31 percent year-over-year and 22 percent quarter-over-quarter. Revenue was higher year-over-year driven by a significant increase in Ryzen processor sales partially offset by lower graphics revenue. Revenue was higher quarter-over-quarter driven by a significant increase in Ryzen processor sales and an increase in graphics revenue.
    • Client processor average selling price (ASP) was lower year-over-year due to a higher mix of mobile processor sales. Client processor ASP was higher quarter-over-quarter driven by higher desktop and mobile processor ASPs.
    • GPU ASP was lower year-over-year due to product cycle timing and higher quarter-over-quarter due to product mix.
    • Operating income was $384 million compared to $179 million a year ago and $200 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were driven by higher Ryzen revenue.
  • Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment revenue was $1.13 billion, up 116 percent year-over-year and 101 percent quarter-over-quarter. Revenue was higher year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter due to higher semi-custom product sales and increased EPYC processor sales.  
    • Operating income was $141 million compared to $61 million a year ago and $33 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were primarily driven by higher revenue.
  • All Other operating loss was $76 million compared to operating losses of $54 million a year ago and $60 million in the prior quarter.

Current Outlook
AMD’s outlook statements are based on current expectations. The following statements are forward-looking, and actual results could differ materially depending on market conditions and the factors set forth under “Cautionary Statement” below.

For the fourth quarter of 2020, AMD expects revenue to be approximately $3.0 billion, plus or minus $100 million, an increase of approximately 41 percent year-over-year and 7 percent sequentially. The year-over-year increase is expected to be primarily driven by the ramp of new Ryzen, EPYC and semi-custom products and growing customer momentum. AMD expects non-GAAP gross margin to be approximately 45 percent in the fourth quarter of 2020.

AMD now expects 2020 revenue to grow by approximately 41 percent compared to 2019, up from prior guidance of 32 percent. Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be approximately 45 percent, consistent with prior guidance.

* 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. 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. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed in this earnings press release should be viewed in addition to and not as a substitute for or superior to AMD’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should be read only in conjunction with AMD’s Consolidated Financial Statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures referenced are reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the tables in this earnings press release. Refer to the data tables at the end of this earnings press release. This earnings press release also contains forward-looking non-GAAP gross margin concerning AMD’s financial outlook, which is based on current expectations as of October 27, 2020 and assumptions and beliefs that involve numerous risks and uncertainties. AMD undertakes no intent or obligation to publicly update or revise its outlook statements as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

* 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 on investee, stock-based compensation, and depreciation and amortization expense. The Company also included a loss contingency on legal matter in the nine months ended September 28, 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 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.
