  • Trailing twelve month adjusted EBITDA $1,042 million
  • Net debt reduced $181 million year-on-year to $2,875 million
  • Product revenue growth of 24 percent year-on-year, down 4 percent sequentially

NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and the full-year of 2012, ended December 31, 2012, and provided guidance for the first quarter 2013.

"Our results for the fourth quarter of 2012 came in at the higher end of our original guidance, as NXP delivered Product revenue of $1,066 million, a four percent sequential decline, and a twenty-four percent increase from the comparable year ago period. Total NXP revenue in the fourth quarter was $1,116 million, approximately a five percent sequential decline, and a twenty percent increase from the comparable year ago period," said Richard Clemmer, NXP Chief Executive Officer.

"Looking at the full-year results, NXP delivered Product revenue of $4,114 million, better than a seven percent year-on-year growth, as key design opportunities we outlined at the beginning of the year came to fruition. Specifically, full-year revenue in our core HPMS segment increased thirteen percent year-on-year due to strong growth in our Identification and Portable & Computing end markets. However, as a result of challenging market conditions, NXP experienced slower than anticipated growth in other areas of our HPMS segment, and a 10 percent year-on-year decline in our Standard product segment. Taken together, total NXP revenue increased four percent year-on-year to $4,358 million.

"As our recent actions demonstrate, we remain committed to improving our cost and expense structure, which should result in improved earnings growth and cash flow generation. Our strategy continues to be focused on providing unique and differentiated product solutions to enable our customer's success, which over the longer-term should allow NXP to outpace the cyclical growth of the overall semiconductor market," said Clemmer.

Note (1): NXP has based the guidance included in this release on judgments and estimates that management believes are reasonable given its assessment of historical trends and other information reasonably available as of the date of this release. The guidance included in this release consists of predictions only, and is subject to a wide range of known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond NXP's control. The guidance included in this release should not be regarded as representations by NXP that the estimated results will be achieved. Actual results may vary materially from the guidance we provide today. In relation to the use of non-GAAP financial information see the note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" elsewhere in this release. For the factors, risks and uncertainties to which judgments, estimates and forward-looking statements generally are subject see the note regarding "Forward-looking Statements." We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, including the guidance set forth herein, to reflect future events or circumstances. Considering the uncertain magnitude and variability of the foreign exchange consequences upon "PPA effects", "restructuring costs", "other incidental items" and any interest expense or taxes in future periods, management believes that GAAP financial measures are not available for NXP on a forward looking basis.

Discussion of GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliations
In addition to providing financial information on a basis consistent with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), NXP also provides the following selected financial measures on a non-GAAP basis: (i) "non-GAAP gross profit," (ii) "non-GAAP gross margin," (iii) "non-GAAP Research and development," (iv) "non-GAAP Selling, general and administrative," (v) non-GAAP Other income," (vi) "non-GAAP operating income (loss)," (vii) "non-GAAP operating margin," (viii) "non-GAAP net income/ (loss)," (ix) "PPA effects," (x) "Restructuring costs," (xi) "Other incidental items," (xii) "non-GAAP Financial Income (expense)," (xiii) "non-GAAP Results relating to equity-accounted investees," (xiv) "non-GAAP Cash tax (expense)," (xv) "non-GAAP EPS," (xvi) "EBITDA", "adjusted EBITDA" and "trailing 12 month adjusted EBITDA" and (xvii) "net debt."

In this release, references to:

  • "non-GAAP gross profit," "non-GAAP research and development", "non-GAAP Selling, general and administrative", "non-GAAP Other income", "non-GAAP operating income (loss)" and "non-GAAP net income/ (loss)" are to NXP's gross profit, research and development, selling general and administrative, operating income and net income/ (loss) calculated on a basis consistent with GAAP, net of the effects of purchase price accounting ("PPA"), restructuring costs and certain other incidental items. "PPA effects" reflect the fair value adjustments impacting acquisition accounting and other acquisition adjustments charged to the income statement applied to the formation of NXP on September 29, 2006 and all subsequent acquisitions. "Restructuring costs" consist of costs related to restructuring programs and gains and losses resulting from divestment activities and impairment charges. "Other incidental items" consist of process and product transfer costs (which refer to the costs incurred in transferring a production process and products from one manufacturing site to another) and certain charges related to acquisitions and divestitures. "Other adjustments" include or exclude certain items that management believes provides insight into our core operating results, our ability to generate cash and underlying business trends affecting our performance.

  • "non-GAAP gross margin" and "non-GAAP operating margin" are to our non-GAAP gross profit or our non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of our sales, respectively;

  • "non-GAAP Financial Income (expense)" is the interest income or expense net of impacts due foreign exchange changes on our Euro-denominated debt, gains or losses due to the extinguishment of long-term debt and less other financial expenses deemed to be one-time in nature;

  • "non-GAAP Cash tax (expense)" is the difference between our GAAP tax provision and the cash taxes paid during the period;

  • "non-GAAP EPS" attributable to stockholders are to non-GAAP net income or loss attributable to NXP's stockholders, divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, adjusted for treasury shares held;

  • "EBITDA" are to NXP's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. "EBITDA" excludes certain tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us, does not reflect any cash capital expenditure requirements for the assets being depreciated and amortized that may have to be replaced in the future, does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs and does not reflect the significant financial expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest payments, on our debts;

  • "adjusted EBITDA" are to EBITDA after adjustments for "restructuring costs," "other incidental items" and results related to equity accounted investees.

  • "trailing 12 month adjusted EBITDA" are to adjusted EBITDA for the last 12 months from the date of this release; and

  • "net debt" is to the sum total of long and short term debt less total cash and cash equivalents, as reflected on the balance sheet.

Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most comparable measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are provided in the financial statements portion of this release in a schedule entitled "Financial Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Results (unaudited)."

NXP provides non-GAAP measures because management believes that they are helpful to understand the underlying operating and profit structure of NXP's operations, to provide additional insight as to how management assesses the performance and allocation of resources among its various segments and because the financial community uses them in its analysis of NXP's operating and/or financial performance, historical results and projections of NXP's future operating results. NXP presents "non-GAAP gross profit," "non-GAAP research and development", "non-GAAP Selling, general and administrative", "non-GAAP Other income," "non-GAAP operating income," "non-GAAP net income/ (loss)," "non-GAAP gross margin," "non-GAAP operating margin" and "non-GAAP EPS" because these financials measures are net of "PPA effects," "restructuring costs", "other incidental items," and "other adjustments" which have affected the comparability of NXP's results over the years. NXP presents "EBITDA," "adjusted EBITDA" and "trailing 12 month adjusted EBITDA" because these financials measures enhance an investor's understanding of NXP's financial performance.

Non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for any information derived or calculated in accordance with GAAP, are not intended to be measures of financial performance or condition, liquidity, profitability or operating cash flows in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), operating income or any other performance measures determined in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures can vary from other participants in the semiconductor industry. They have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation for analysis of NXP's financial results as reported under GAAP.

The demand for organizations to expand their infrastructure to multiple IT environments like the cloud, on-premise, mobile, bring your own device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow. As this hybrid infrastructure increases, the challenge to monitor the security of these systems increases in volume and complexity. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stephen Coty, Chief Security Evangelist at Alert Logic, will show how properly configured and managed security architecture can...
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Klein, CEO and Co-founder of Rachio, will discuss next generation communities that are using IoT to create more sustainable, intelligent communities. One example is Sterling Ranch, a 10,000 home development that – with the help of Siemens – will integrate IoT technology into the community to provide residents with energy and water savings as well as intelligent security. Everything from stop lights to sprinkler systems to building infrastructures will run ef...
The IoTs will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and share the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the development proc...
A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...
trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices.

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...
Increasing IoT connectivity is forcing enterprises to find elegant solutions to organize and visualize all incoming data from these connected devices with re-configurable dashboard widgets to effectively allow rapid decision-making for everything from immediate actions in tactical situations to strategic analysis and reporting.
