EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, Feb. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ:NXPI) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and the full-year 2015, ended December 31, 2015, as well as provided guidance for the first quarter of 2016.

“The end of 2015 brought to a close a year filled with significant accomplishments and a few challenges for NXP. During the fourth quarter we successfully completed the previously announced merger with Freescale Semiconductor. NXP is now the clear market leader in automotive, microcontroller and security semiconductor solutions. Notwithstanding our success, we faced an uncertain macro demand environment during the second-half of 2015. Despite this, we continued to outperform the overall industry. Looking forward, our task is to continue to outgrow the market despite the uncertain environment,” said Richard Clemmer, NXP Chief Executive Officer.

On a full-year basis, NXP delivered revenue of $6.1 billion, up 8 percent from 2014, including the benefit of approximately one month of revenue contribution from Freescale. Revenue from our strategic HPMS segment was $4.72 billion, up 12 percent year-on-year, with nearly all of the operating segments delivering positive growth for the year. Standard Product segment revenue was $1.24 billion, down 3 percent versus the prior year. Full-year non-GAAP operating profit and non-GAAP earnings were both up strongly versus 2014. Non-GAAP operating income was $1.68 billion, up 19 percent versus the prior year, and non-GAAP earnings per share were $5.60, up nearly 18 percent versus 2014, and non-GAAP free cash flow was $996 million.

Looking at our results for the fourth quarter 2015, revenue was $1.61 billion, up 4 percent year-on-year, and up nearly 6 percent versus the prior quarter. HPMS segment revenue was $1.31 billion, up 12 percent from the same period a year ago, as well as sequentially. Standard Product segment revenue was $271 million, down 18 percent from same period a year ago and down 17 percent sequentially. In spite of weaker revenue trends, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share were $1.25, reflective of better gross margin and solid expense control resulting in improved profit fall-through. Additionally we generated $180 million non-GAAP free cash flow.

“In summary, we believe NXP is ideally positioned in the right markets, with the right customers and highly competitive portfolio of solutions. I would like to personally thank all of our employees for their tireless efforts in bringing the merger to a successful conclusion. I would further like to thank our customers for the positive inputs and confidence in the vision of the combined company. We believe the merger will result in significant value creation both in terms of giving us an even more competitive cost structure as well broadening the product portfolio we can offer our customers,” 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. Please note:

  • During 4Q15, results only include approximately one-month of Freescale revenue. Guidance growth rates based on absolute reported financial results.
  • 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 without unreasonable efforts on a forward looking basis.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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) Gross profit, (ii) Gross margin, (iii) Research and development, (iv) Selling, general and administrative, (v) Other income, (vi) Operating income (loss), (vii) Operating margin, (viii) Financial Income (expense), (ix) Cash tax expense, (x) Results relating to equity-accounted investees, (xi) Net income (loss), (xii) Net income (loss) attributable to stockholders, (xiii) Weighted average shares –diluted, (xiv) Diluted net income (loss) attributable to stockholders per share, (xv) EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and trailing 12 month adjusted EBITDA, and (xvi) non-GAAP free cash flow. The non-GAAP information excludes the amortization of acquisition related intangible assets, the purchase accounting effect on inventory and property, plant and equipment, merger related costs (including integration costs), certain items related to divestitures, share-based compensation expense, restructuring and asset impairment charges, process and product transfer costs, non-cash interest expense on convertible notes, extinguishment of debt, changes in the fair value of the warrant liability, foreign exchange differences on our debt and the non-cash impact on income tax expense.

Management does not believe that these items are reflective of the Company’s underlying performance. The presentation of these and other similar items in NXP’s non-GAAP financial results should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual. NXP believes this non-GAAP financial information provides additional insight into the Company’s on-going performance and has therefore chosen to provide this information to investors for a more consistent basis of comparison and to help them evaluate the results of the Company’s on-going operations and enable more meaningful period to period comparisons. These non-GAAP measures are provided in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. 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).”
