NXP Semiconductors Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results

Monday, 27. July 2020 23:00

EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, July 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today reported financial results for the second quarter 2020, ended June 28, 2020.

“NXP delivered second quarter revenue of $1.82 billion, an 18 percent decline from the year ago period, and modestly better than the mid-point of our guidance," said Kurt Sievers, NXP President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our Automotive end market was significantly impacted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global macro-economic environment, though we did experience better than anticipated sequential trends in our other end markets. We are encouraged by the early positive trends we experienced in China and sales out of our distribution channel improved sequentially. We expect improved sales trends through the second half of this year, as a result of company specific program ramps and the ongoing stabilization of our end markets.”

Key Highlights

  • Second-quarter revenue was $1.8 billion, down 18 percent year-on-year;
  • Second-quarter GAAP gross margin was 47.3 percent, and GAAP operating margin was (8.0) percent;
  • Second-quarter non-GAAP gross margin was 49.1 percent, and non-GAAP operating margin was 20.7 percent;
  • Second-quarter cash flow from operations was $414 million, with net capex investments of $74 million, resulting in non-GAAP free cash flow of $340 million;
  • On May 28, 2020, the NXP Board of Directors approved the payment of an interim dividend for the second quarter 2020 of $0.375 per ordinary share;
  • In the second quarter of 2020 NXP returned $108 million to shareholders, primarily through previously announced dividend payments;
  • On May 1, 2020, NXP issued unsecured notes for a total amount of $2 billion. The amount is split in 3 notes: $500 million with maturity 2025, $500 million matures in 2027 and the remaining $1 billion is a green bond that matures in 2030. Net proceeds were $1,985 million.

NXP has based the guidance included in this release on judgments and estimates that management believes are reasonable given its assessment of historical trends and other information reasonably available as of the date of this release. Please note, the guidance included in this release consists of predictions only, and is subject to a wide range of known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond NXP's control. The guidance included in this release should not be regarded as representations by NXP that the estimated results will be achieved. Actual results may vary materially from the guidance we provide today. In relation to the use of non-GAAP financial information see the note regarding "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below. For the factors, risks, and uncertainties to which judgments, estimates and forward-looking statements generally are subject see the note regarding "Forward-looking Statements." We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, including the guidance set forth herein, to reflect future events or circumstances

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In managing NXP's business on a consolidated basis, management develops an annual operating plan, which is approved by our Board of Directors, using non-GAAP financial measures. In measuring performance against this plan, management considers the actual or potential impacts on these non-GAAP financial measures from actions taken to reduce costs with the goal of increasing our gross margin and operating margin and when assessing appropriate levels of research and development efforts. In addition, management relies upon these non-GAAP financial measures when making decisions about product spending, administrative budgets, and other operating expenses. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when coupled with the GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of the Company’s results of operations and the factors and trends affecting NXP’s business. We believe that they enable investors to perform additional comparisons of our operating results, to assess our liquidity and capital position and to analyze financial performance excluding the effect of expenses unrelated to operations, certain non-cash expenses and share-based compensation expense, which may obscure trends in NXP's underlying performance.  This information also enables investors to compare financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance,and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management. 

These non-GAAP financial measures are provided in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The presentation of these and other similar items in NXP’s non-GAAP financial results should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent, or unusual.  Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most comparable measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are provided in the financial statements portion of this release in a schedule entitled “Financial Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Results (unaudited).” Please refer to the NXP Historic Financial Model file found on the Financial Information page of the Investor Relations section of our website at https://investors.nxp.com for additional information related to our rationale for using these non-GAAP financial measures, as well as the impact of these measures on the presentation of NXP's operations.

In addition to providing financial information on a basis consistent with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), NXP also provides the following selected financial measures on a non-GAAP basis: (i) Gross profit, (ii) Gross margin, (iii) Research and development, (iv) Selling, general and administrative, (v) Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, (vi) Other income, (vii) Operating income (loss), (viii) Operating margin, (ix) Financial Income (expense), (x) adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and trailing 12 month adjusted EBITDA, and (xi) free cash flow and free cash flow as a percent of Revenue. The non-GAAP information excludes the amortization of acquisition related intangible assets, the purchase accounting effect on inventory and property, plant and equipment, merger related costs (including integration costs), certain items related to divestitures, share-based compensation expense, restructuring and asset impairment charges, non-cash interest expense on convertible notes, extinguishment of debt, and foreign exchange gains and losses.

NXP has based these assumptions on information currently available, if any one or more of these assumptions turn out to be incorrect, actual results may differ from those predicted. While NXP does not know what impact any such differences may have on its business, if there are such differences, its future results of operations and its financial condition could be materially adversely affected.
