“We executed well in the first quarter, navigating the challenging environment to deliver 40 percent year-over-year revenue growth and significant gross margin expansion driven by our Ryzen and EPYC processors,” said Dr. Lisa Su, AMD president and CEO. “While we expect some uncertainty in the near-term demand environment, our financial foundation is solid and our strong product portfolio positions us well across a diverse set of resilient end markets. We remain focused on strong business execution while ensuring the safety of our employees and supporting our customers, partners and communities. Our strategy and long-term growth plans are unchanged.”

Q1 2020 Results

  • Revenue was $1.79 billion, up 40 percent year-over-year primarily driven by higher Computing and Graphics segment revenue. Revenue was down 16 percent quarter-over-quarter due to lower revenue in both segments.
  • Gross margin was 46 percent, up 5 percentage points year-over-year and 1 percentage point quarter-over-quarter, primarily driven by Ryzen™ and EPYC™ processor sales.
  • Operating income was $177 million compared to operating income of $38 million a year ago and $348 million in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP operating income was $236 million compared to operating income of $84 million a year ago and $405 million in the prior quarter. Operating income improved year-over-year primarily driven by revenue growth and a greater percentage of Ryzen and EPYC processor sales. On a sequential basis, operating income declined due to lower revenue and higher R&D expenses.
  • Net income was $162 million compared to net income of $16 million a year ago and $170 million in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP net income was $222 million compared to net income of $62 million a year ago and $383 million in the prior quarter.
  • Diluted earnings per share was $0.14 compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.01 a year ago and $0.15 in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.18, compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.06 a year ago and $0.32 in the prior quarter.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $1.4 billion at the end of the quarter.

Quarterly Financial Segment Summary

  • Computing and Graphics segment revenue was $1.44 billion, up 73 percent year-over-year and down 13 percent quarter-over-quarter. Revenue was higher year-over-year driven by strong Ryzen processor and Radeon™ product channel sales. The quarter-over-quarter decline was primarily due to lower graphics processor sales.
    ◦   Client processor average selling price (ASP) was up year-over-year driven by Ryzen processor sales. Client processor ASP was down slightly quarter-over-quarter due to higher notebook sales.
    ◦   GPU ASP was lower year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter due to product mix. 
    ◦   Operating income was $262 million compared to $16 million a year ago and $360 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase was driven by significantly higher revenue. The quarter-over-quarter decline was primarily due to lower revenue.
  • Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment revenue was $348 million, down 21 percent year-over-year and 25 percent sequentially primarily due to lower semi-custom sales, partially offset by higher EPYC processor sales. 
    ◦   Operating loss was $26 million compared to operating income of $68 million a year ago, which included a $60 million licensing gain. The decline from operating income of $45 million in the prior quarter was primarily due to lower revenue and higher operating expenses.
  • All Other operating loss was $59 million compared to operating losses of $46 million a year ago and $57 million in the prior quarter.

Current Outlook
AMD’s outlook statements are based on current expectations and contemplate the current COVID-19 environment, global economic backdrop and customer demand signals. The following statements are forward-looking, and actual results could differ materially depending on market conditions, COVID-19 factors and the factors set forth under “Cautionary Statement” below.

For the second quarter of 2020, AMD expects revenue to be approximately $1.85 billion, plus or minus $100 million, an increase of approximately 21 percent year-over-year and 4 percent sequentially. The year-over-year increase is expected to be primarily driven by growth of Ryzen and EPYC processor sales. The sequential increase is expected to be primarily driven by EPYC processor and semi-custom sales. AMD expects non-GAAP gross margin to be approximately 44 percent in the second quarter of 2020. The sequential decrease is expected to be primarily due to the initial ramp of next-generation semi-custom products.

Despite expectations of weaker COVID-19 related consumer demand in the second half of the year, AMD expects 2020 revenue to grow by approximately 25 percent, plus or minus 5 percentage points, compared to 2019 and non-GAAP gross margin to be approximately 45 percent.

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 first quarter 2020 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 webcast will be available for 12 months after the conference call.

*   In this earnings press release, in addition to GAAP financial results, AMD has provided non-GAAP financial measures including non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect certain adjustments as presented in the tables in this earnings press release. We use a normalized tax rate in our computation of the non-GAAP income tax provision to provide better consistency across the reporting periods. For fiscal 2020, the projected non-GAAP tax rate is 3%. AMD has also provided adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow as supplemental non-GAAP measures of its performance. These items are defined in the footnotes to the selected corporate data tables provided at the end of this earnings press release. AMD is providing these financial measures because it believes this non-GAAP presentation makes it easier for investors to compare its operating results for current and historical periods and also because AMD believes it assists investors in comparing AMD’s performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that it does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance and for the other reasons described in the footnotes to the selected data tables. Refer to the data tables at the end of this earnings press release.

* The Company presents “Adjusted EBITDA” as a supplemental measure of its performance. Adjusted EBITDA for the Company is determined by adjusting GAAP net income for interest expense, other income (expense), net, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, equity income (loss) on investee, stock-based compensation, and depreciation and amortization expense. In addition, the Company included a loss contingency on legal matter in 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 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 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. 
   
  The Company has provided reconciliations within the earnings press release of these Non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
