AMD Reports First Quarter Results


AMD CTO Phil Hester ResignsSUNNYVALE, Calif. — April 17, 2008 — AMD (NYSE: AMD) today reported first quarter 2008 revenue of $1.505 billion, a net loss of $358 million, or $0.59 per share, and an operating loss of $264 million.  These results include an impact of $50 million, or $0.08 per share, from ATI acquisition-related charges.   First quarter revenue decreased 15 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2007 and increased 22 percent compared to the first quarter of 2007.  In the fourth quarter of 2007, AMD reported revenue of $1.770 billion, a net loss of $1.772 billion, and an operating loss of $1.678 billion.  In the first quarter of 2007, AMD reported revenue of $1.233 billion, a net loss $611 million, and an operating loss of $504 million.


“A seasonally weak first quarter was amplified by a challenging economic environment for consumers and lower than expected revenues of previous generation products, resulting in lower than expected revenues in all business segments.  However, we are encouraged by the market acceptance of our Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ server processors as well as our new chipset and graphics offerings,” said Robert J. Rivet, AMD’s Chief Financial officer.  “We remain committed to achieve operating profitability in the second half of the year, driven by our portfolio of new products and platforms and aggressive restructuring programs.”
First quarter 2008 gross margin was 42 percent compared to 44 percent in the fourth quarter of 2007 and 28 percent in the first quarter of 2007.  The decrease from the prior quarter was primarily due to decreased microprocessor unit shipments.


Current Outlook
AMD’s outlook statements are based on current expectations.  The following statements are forward looking, and actual results could differ materially depending on market conditions and the factors set forth under “Cautionary Statement” below.


In the seasonally down second quarter, AMD expects revenue to decrease in line with seasonality. As previously disclosed, AMD expects to record a restructuring charge in the second quarter of 2008.

 I remember when it seemed AMD could do no wrong. Since Conroe, AMD has been playing catch up.
