  • 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.

@ThingsExpo Stories
Software AG helps organizations transform into Digital Enterprises, so they can differentiate from competitors and better engage customers, partners and employees. Using the Software AG Suite, companies can close the gap between business and IT to create digital systems of differentiation that drive front-line agility. We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.

The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace. These technological reforms have not only changed computers and smartphones, but are also changing the data processing model for all information devices. In particular, in the area known as M2M (Machine-To-Machine), there are great expectations that information with a new type of value can be produced using a variety of devices and sensors saving/sharing data via the network and through large-scale cloud-type data processing. This consortium believes that attaching a huge number of devic...

With the iCloud scandal seemingly in its past, Apple announced new iPhones, updates to iPad and MacBook as well as news on OSX Yosemite. Although consumers will have to wait to get their hands on some of that new stuff, what they can get is the latest release of iOS 8 that Apple made available for most in-market iPhones and iPads. Originally announced at WWDC (Apple’s annual developers conference) in June, iOS 8 seems to spearhead Apple’s newfound focus upon greater integration of their products into everyday tasks, cross-platform mobility and self-monitoring. Before you update your device, here is a look at some of the new features and things you may want to consider from a mobile security perspective.
