Quarterly Financial Summary

  • Gross margin was 15 percent. Non-GAAP gross margin was 39 percent, a sequential increase of 8 percent. Q3 2012 gross margin of 31 percent was adversely impacted by an inventory write-down of approximately $100 million. Fourth quarter gross margin was positively impacted by the sales of higher priced desktop microprocessors.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balance, including long-term marketable securities, was $1.2 billion at the end of the quarter.
  • AMD announced restructuring actions and operational efficiencies in Q4 2012, resulting in a net restructuring charge of $90 million in the quarter, which includes costs related to actions taken in Q4 2012 as well as an estimate of the expected costs related to Q1 2013 workforce reductions.
  • Computing Solutions segment revenue decreased 11 percent sequentially and 37 percent year-over-year. The sequential and year-over-year decreases were primarily driven by lower microprocessor unit volume shipments.
    • Operating loss was $323 million, compared with an operating loss of $114 million in Q3 2012 and operating income of $165 million in Q4 2011. Q4 2012 operating loss increased $209 million sequentially primarily due to the impact of a Lower of Cost or Market (LCM) charge related to the GLOBLFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF) take-or-pay obligation of $273 million. The charge was previously expected to be $165 million.
    • Microprocessor ASP increased sequentially and decreased year-over-year.
  • Graphics segment revenue decreased 5 percent sequentially and 15 percent year-over-year. Graphics processor unit (GPU) revenue decreased sequentially and year-over-year due to lower unit volume shipments.
    • Operating income was $22 million, compared with $18 million in Q3 2012 and $27 million in Q4 2011.
    • GPU ASP was flat sequentially and increased year-over-year.

    * The Company presents "Adjusted EBITDA" as a supplemental measure of
    its performance. Adjusted EBITDA for the Company is determined by
    adjusting operating income (loss) for depreciation and amortization,
    employee stock-based compensation expense and amortization of acquired
    intangible assets.In addition, the Company also included the following
    adjustments for the applicable period: for the fourth quarter of 2012,
    the Company also included adjustments for the lower of cost or market
    charge (LCM Charge) related to GF take-or-pay obligation and net
    restructuring charges; for the third quarter of 2012 and the fourth
    quarter of 2011, the Company also included an adjustment for net
    restructuring charges; for 2012, the Company also included adjustments
    for the LCM Charge, a charge related to the limited waiver of
    exclusivity from GF, a legal settlement with a third party, net
    restructuring charges and costs related to the acquisition of SeaMicro;
    and for 2011, the Company also included adjustments related to a
    payment to GF, a legal settlement with a third party and net
    restructuring charges. The Company calculates and communicates Adjusted
    EBITDA in the financial schedules because the Company's 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 (loss) 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 and income taxes that can affect cash flows.

    ** The Company also presents non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow in the
    earnings release as a supplemental measure of its performance. In 2008
    and 2009, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively,
    the "AMD Parties") entered into supplier agreements with IBM Credit LLC
    and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, the "IBM Parties").
    Pursuant to these supplier agreements, the AMD Parties sold to the IBM
    Parties invoices of selected distributor customers. Because the Company
    does not recognize revenue until its distributors sell its products to
    their customers, under GAAP, the Company classified funds received from
    the IBM Parties as debt on the balance sheet. Moreover, for cash flow
    purposes, these funds were classified as cash flows from financing
    activities. When a distributor paid the applicable IBM Party, the
    Company reduced the distributor's accounts receivable and the
    corresponding debt resulted in a noncash accounting entry. Because the
    Company did not receive the cash from the distributor to reduce the
    accounts receivable, the distributor's payment was not reflected in the
    Company's cash flows from operating activities. Non-GAAP adjusted free
    cash flow for the Company was determined by adding the distributors'
    payments to the IBM Parties to GAAP net cash provided by (used in)
    operating activities. This amount was then further adjusted by
    subtracting capital expenditures. Generally, under GAAP, the reduction
    in accounts receivable is assumed to be a source of operating cash
    flows. Therefore, the Company believes that treating the payments from
    its distributor customers to the IBM Parties as if the Company actually
    received the cash from the distributor and then used that cash to pay
    down the debt is more reflective of the economic substance of the
    transaction. On February 11, 2011, the Company terminated its supplier
    agreements with IBM Parties. As a result, as of the end of the second
    quarter of 2011, there were no outstanding invoices relating to the
    financing arrangement with the IBM Parties, and starting from the third
    quarter of 2011, the Company no longer makes quarterly adjustments for
    distributors' payments to the IBM Parties to its GAAP net cash provided
    by (used in) operating activities when calculating non-GAAP adjusted
    free cash flow. The Company calculates and communicates non-GAAP
    adjusted free cash flow in the financial schedules because the
    Company's management believes it is of importance to investors to
    understand the nature of these cash flows. The Company's calculation of
    non-GAAP adjusted 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 non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow as an
    alternative to GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating or
    financing activities. The Company has provided reconciliations within
    the press release and financial schedules of these non-GAAP financial
    measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.

Chief Security Officers (CSO), CIOs and IT Directors are all concerned with providing a secure environment from which their business can innovate and customers can safely consume without the fear of Distributed Denial of Service attacks. To be successful in today's hyper-connected world, the enterprise needs to leverage the capabilities of the web and be ready to innovate without fear of DDoS attacks, concerns about application security and other threats. Organizations face great risk from increasingly frequent and sophisticated attempts to render web properties unavailable, and steal intellectual property or personally identifiable information. Layered security best practices extend security beyond the data center, delivering DDoS protection and maintaining site performance in the face of fast-changing threats.

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marc Jones, Vice President of Product Innovation for SoftLayer, will explain how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
