“I am pleased with our financial performance and execution in the quarter as we ramped production of three leadership 7nm product families,” said Dr. Lisa Su, AMD president and CEO.  “We have reached a significant inflection point for the company as our new Ryzen, Radeon and EPYC processors form the most competitive product portfolio in our history and are well positioned to drive significant growth in the second half of the year.”

Q2 2019 Results

  • Revenue was $1.53 billion, down 13 percent year-over-year due to lower revenue in both segments. Revenue was up 20 percent quarter-over-quarter due to higher revenue in both segments.
  • Gross margin was 41 percent, up 4 percentage points year-over-year, primarily driven by increased RyzenTM and EPYCTM processor sales. Gross margin was flat quarter-over-quarter.
  • Operating income was $59 million compared to $153 million a year ago and $38 million in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP operating income was $111 million compared to $186 million a year ago and $84 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year decline was primarily due to lower revenue and higher operating expenses.
  • Net income was $35 million compared to $116 million a year ago and $16 million in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP net income was $92 million compared to $156 million a year ago and $62 million in the prior quarter. 
  • Diluted earnings per share was $0.03, compared to $0.11 a year ago and $0.01 in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.08, compared to $0.14 a year ago and $0.06 in the prior quarter.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $1.1 billion at the end of the quarter. 

Quarterly Financial Segment Summary

  • Computing and Graphics segment revenue was $940 million, down 13 percent year-over-year and up 13 percent quarter-over-quarter. Revenue was lower year-over-year primarily due to lower graphics channel sales, partially offset by increased client processor and datacenter GPU sales. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to higher GPU sales.
    • Client processor average selling price (ASP) was up year-over-year driven by Ryzen processor sales. Client processor ASP was down quarter-over-quarter due to a higher mix of mobile processor sales.
    • GPU ASP increased year-over-year primarily driven by datacenter GPU sales. GPU ASP was down slightly quarter-over-quarter due to lower datacenter GPU sales and higher graphics channel sales. 
    • Operating income was $22 million, compared to $117 million a year ago and $16 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to lower revenue. The quarter-over-quarter increase was due to higher GPU sales.
  • Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment revenue was $591 million, down 12 percent year-over-year and up 34 percent sequentially. The year-over-year revenue decrease was primarily due to lower semi-custom product revenue, partially offset by higher EPYC processor sales. The quarter-over-quarter increase was driven by higher semi-custom and EPYC processor revenue. 
    • Operating income was $89 million, compared to $69 million a year ago and $68 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were primarily driven by higher EPYC processor sales.
  • All Other operating loss was $52 million compared to $33 million a year ago and $46 million in the prior quarter.

For the third quarter of 2019, AMD expects revenue to be approximately $1.8 billion, plus or minus $50 million, an increase of approximately 18 percent sequentially and approximately 9 percent year-over-year. The sequential and year-over-year increases are expected to be driven by Ryzen, EPYC and Radeon product sales. AMD expects non-GAAP gross margin to be approximately 43 percent in the third quarter of 2019.

For full year 2019, AMD now expects revenue to increase a mid-single digit percent over 2018 driven by significant sales growth of our new Ryzen, EPYC and Radeon processors, partially offset by lower than expected semi-custom revenue. Revenue excluding semi-custom is expected to grow approximately 20 percent year over year. AMD expects non-GAAP gross margin to be approximately 42 percent for 2019.

AMD Teleconference
AMD will hold a conference call for the financial community at 2:30 p.m. PT (5:30 p.m. ET) today to discuss its second quarter 2019 financial results. AMD will provide a real-time audio broadcast of the teleconference on the Investor Relations page of its website at www.amd.com.

* The Company presents “Adjusted EBITDA” as a supplemental measure of its performance. Adjusted EBITDA for the Company is determined by adjusting GAAP operating income for stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization expense. In addition, the Company also included a loss contingency on legal matter in the three and six months ended June 29, 2019 and the three months ended March 30, 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 operating 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 as well as interest income and expense and income taxes 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 (used in) 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. All periods presented conform to the current period presentation. 

The Company has provided reconciliations within the earnings press release of these Non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
