EINDHOVEN, Netherlands — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 22, 2009 — NXP Semiconductors today announced third quarter sales of USD 1,034 million, a comparable increase of 19.2% and a nominal increase of 20.7% from the second quarter of 2009. While the effects of the economic and financial crisis continue to have an impact on the industry, the increase in sales on a sequential basis was visible across all business segments and regions.

Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2009 amounted to a profit of USD 147 million, which is in line with the profit of USD 147 million in the third quarter of 2008, and up from a profit of USD 89 million in the second quarter of 2009. Adjusted EBITA was a profit of USD 55 million this quarter compared to a profit of USD 15 million in the same period last year and a loss of USD 18 million in the previous quarter.

Net income for the third quarter of 2009 was a profit of USD 412 million compared to a loss of USD 2,540 million in the third quarter of 2008 and a profit of USD 344 million in the second quarter of 2009. The sequential increase in net income is largely attributable to a higher financial income as a result of the debt restructuring transactions during the quarter.

The cash position was USD 1,061 million at the end of the third quarter compared to USD 1,373 million at the end of the second quarter of 2009. The lower cash position largely reflects the bond buy back transactions undertaken in the quarter and the cash out as a result of the ongoing restructuring payments for the Redesign Program.

Outlook: although we have recently experienced improvements across all business segments and all regions we are yet to see signs that this represents a fundamental and sustainable improvement of the global semiconductor industry. Considering the current business development and the unusual characteristics of this fourth quarter, we expect a flat to mid single digit sequential sales increase in the fourth quarter of 2009 on a business and currency comparable basis (excluding wafer sales to ST-Ericsson). Visibility beyond the fourth quarter is still limited.
