TI Reports 2Q06 Financial Results

Except as noted, financial results are for continuing operations. The sale of TI's former Sensors & Controls business was completed on April 27, 2006, and that business is reported as a discontinued operation.

DALLAS, July 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (NYSE: TXN) (TI) today reported revenue of $3.70 billion for the second quarter of 2006. Revenue was 11 percent higher sequentially and 24 percent higher than the same quarter a year ago as demand for the company's semiconductors continued to strengthen. Sequential growth also benefited from seasonal demand for graphing calculators as retailers began to stock for the upcoming back-to-school season. As previously announced, the company received a $70 million royalty settlement in the quarter that was included in revenue.

Earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations were $0.47, up 42 percent sequentially and 34 percent from a year ago. EPS included an expense of $0.03 from stock-based compensation, a benefit of $0.03 from a sales tax refund and a benefit of $0.02 from the royalty settlement. The company began expensing stock options in the third quarter of 2005 and, therefore, equivalent stock-based compensation expense was not reflected in the year-ago quarter, when the company earned $0.35 per share from continuing operations.

"This was another excellent quarter for Texas Instruments," said Rich Templeton, president and chief executive officer. "All regions of the world showed strong revenue growth from a year ago. Revenue from our wireless semiconductors grew 27 percent, including more than 70 percent growth in 3G; revenue from high-performance analog semiconductors grew 32 percent; and revenue from our DLP(R) picture technology grew 34 percent.

"Strategically, our focus on open wireless standards was reinforced by the actions of operators around the world, who are accelerating their infrastructure transitions to GSM because of its cost effectiveness and the wide range of choices it offers," Templeton said.

"Going into the third quarter, our backlog of orders is up, and our outlook is for seasonal growth. As always, we will pay close attention to the world's economies and to our inventory in the various market channels."

Gross Profit

TI's gross profit was $1.91 billion, or 51.6 percent of revenue. This was an increase of $235 million from the prior quarter and an increase of $481 million from the year-ago quarter. The increases over both periods reflect higher revenue in the company's two segments, Semiconductor and Educational & Productivity Solutions (E&PS).

Operating Expenses

Research and development (R&D) expense was $536 million, or 14.5 percent of revenue. R&D increased $3 million from the prior quarter and $51 million from the year-ago quarter. The increases were due to higher spending for development of new semiconductor devices, particularly associated with wireless applications.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense was $418 million, or 11.3 percent of revenue. This expense decreased $3 million from the prior quarter and was up $79 million from the year-ago quarter. The increase from a year ago was primarily due to the combination of stock-based compensation expense and higher spending for consumer advertising of the company's DLP semiconductors used in high-definition televisions.

Operating Profit

Operating profit was $953 million, or 25.8 percent of revenue. This was an increase of $235 million from the prior quarter primarily due to higher gross profit in both of the company's segments. It was also an increase of $351 million from the year-ago quarter due to higher gross profit in the Semiconductor segment. Total stock-based compensation expense of $84 million, or 2.3 percent of revenue, was included in Corporate in the second quarter of 2006.

Other Income (Expense) Net (OI&E)

OI&E of $88 million increased $36 million from the prior quarter and $32 million from the year-ago quarter due to a sales tax refund and higher interest income.

Net Income

Income from continuing operations was $739 million, or $0.47 per share.

Net income, which includes income from continuing and discontinued operations, was $2.39 billion, or $1.50 per share. This included $1.65 billion from discontinued operations, almost all of which was a gain on the sale of the company's former Sensors & Controls business.

Orders

TI orders were $3.91 billion. This was an increase of $302 million from the prior quarter and an increase of $767 million from the year-ago quarter. Both increases were primarily due to higher demand for the company's semiconductor products.

Cash

Cash flow from operations was $667 million. This was an increase of $145 million from the prior quarter and a decrease of $97 million from the year-ago quarter.

At the end of the second quarter, total cash (cash and cash equivalents plus short-term investments) was $5.67 billion, up $2.01 billion from the end of the prior quarter and up $1.20 billion from the end of the year-ago quarter. These increases were primarily due to the $2.98 billion of cash from the sale of the company's Sensors & Controls business as well as income from continuing operations, partially offset by the cash used for stock repurchases. During the second quarter of 2006, the company repurchased 33 million shares of TI common stock for $1.04 billion and paid $47 million in dividends. Also in the quarter, $275 million of variable-rate bank notes were prepaid.

Capital Spending and Depreciation

Capital expenditures were $374 million. This was a decrease of $34 million from the prior quarter and an increase of $127 million from the year- ago quarter. TI's capital expenditures in the second quarter were primarily for equipment used in the assembly and test of semiconductors.

Depreciation was $267 million, a decrease of $3 million from the prior quarter and a decrease of $70 million from the year-ago quarter.

Accounts Receivable and Inventories

Accounts receivable were $1.93 billion. This was an increase of $131 million from the prior quarter due to seasonally higher receivables for calculators in the E&PS segment, and an increase of $191 million from the year-ago quarter reflecting higher revenue. Days sales outstanding were 47 at the end of the second quarter compared with 49 at the end of the prior quarter and 53 at the end of the year-ago quarter.

Inventory was $1.34 billion at the end of the second quarter. This was an increase of $89 million from the prior quarter as the company built inventory to support expected product shipments in the second half of the year. Compared with the year-ago quarter, inventory increased $219 million. Days of inventory at the end of the second quarter were 67 compared with 67 at the end of the prior quarter and 65 at the end of the year-ago quarter.

Outlook

TI intends to provide a mid-quarter update to its financial outlook on September 11, 2006, by issuing a press release and holding a conference call. Both will be available on the company's web site.

For the third quarter of 2006, TI expects revenue from continuing operations to be in the following ranges:

     * Total TI, $3.63 billion to $3.95 billion;
     * Semiconductor, $3.45 billion to $3.75 billion; and
     * Educational & Productivity Solutions, $180 million to $200 million.

TI expects earnings per share from continuing operations to be in the range of $0.42 to $0.48.

The effective tax rate for continuing operations in 2006 is expected to be about 30 percent, unchanged from the prior estimate. This tax rate is based on current tax law and does not assume reinstatement of the federal research tax credit, which expired at the end of 2005. Additionally in 2006 for continuing operations, TI still expects expense for R&D to be about $2.2 billion and capital expenditures to be about $1.3 billion. Depreciation is expected to be about $1.05 billion, up slightly from the prior estimate.

    Semiconductor
     *  Revenue in the second quarter was $3.51 billion.  This was an increase
        of 7 percent from the prior quarter primarily due to demand for the
        company's analog products and a $70 million royalty settlement
        received in the second quarter from Conexant Systems, Inc.  It was
        also an increase of 26 percent from the year-ago quarter primarily due
        to demand for the company's DSP and analog products.
        *  Analog revenue was up 8 percent from the prior quarter and
           increased 23 percent from the year-ago quarter primarily due to
           demand for the company's high-performance analog products and
           analog products used in broadband applications.  Revenue from high-
           performance analog products grew 5 percent from the prior quarter
           and 32 percent from a year ago.
        *  DSP revenue was about even with the prior quarter, and was up
           24 percent from the year-ago quarter primarily due to higher demand
           from the wireless market.
        *  TI's remaining Semiconductor revenue increased 17 percent from the
           prior quarter and 31 percent from a year ago due to the royalty
           settlement and broad-based growth in demand for DLP products, RISC
           microprocessors, standard logic products and microcontrollers.
     *  Gross profit was $1.82 billion, or 51.8 percent of revenue.  This was
        an increase of $157 million from the prior quarter and an increase of
        $490 million from the year-ago quarter.  The increases over both
        periods were due to higher revenue.
     *  Operating profit was $1.03 billion, or 29.4 percent of revenue.  This
        was an increase of $149 million from the prior quarter and an
        increase of $435 million from the year-ago quarter.  The increases
        over both periods were due to higher gross profit.
     *  Semiconductor orders were $3.75 billion.  This was an increase of 10
        percent from the prior quarter primarily due to demand for analog
        products, and an increase of 26 percent from a year ago due to strong
        demand for analog and DSP products.

    Semiconductor Highlights
     *  TI is increasing its wireless design presence in India with a new R&D
        center in Chennai, focusing on a platform of open-standard
        technologies that span TI's wireless product portfolio.
     *  TI unveiled details of its 45-nanometer manufacturing process that
        uses immersion lithography to double the number of chips per wafer,
        increase performance by 30 percent and reduce power consumption by
        40 percent, providing customers early access to faster, smaller and
        lower power products.
     *  TI began volume production of a high-performance analog power
        management chip that extends battery life in smartphones, digital
        still cameras and other single-cell lithium-ion-powered portable
        multimedia devices, by delivering 96 percent efficiency over a wide
        range of input voltages.

    Educational & Productivity Solutions
     *  Revenue in the second quarter was $192 million.  This was an increase
        of $118 million from the prior quarter as retailers began to stock
        product in preparation for the upcoming back-to-school season.  It was
        also an increase of $11 million from the year-ago quarter due to
        higher demand from instructional dealers that supply school districts.
     *  Gross profit was $119 million, or 61.9 percent of revenue.  Gross
        profit increased $78 million from the prior quarter and $8 million
        from the year-ago quarter primarily due to higher revenue.
     *  Operating profit was $84 million, or 43.9 percent of revenue.  This
        was an increase of $71 million from the prior quarter and $5 million
        from the year-ago quarter.  The increases were due to higher gross
        profit.
