EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, Feb. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ:NXPI) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016.

“NXP delivered better than historical seasonal results for the fourth quarter of 2016, with revenue of $2.44 billion, an increase of 52 percent year on year, and a decline of one percent versus the prior quarter, in-line with the mid-point of our guidance. Our full-year revenue was $9.5 billion, up 56 percent versus our results in 2015,” said Richard Clemmer, NXP Chief Executive Officer.

“Our fourth quarter performance marked an important milestone in the resumption of our annual growth trajectory. Fourth quarter HPMS segment revenue was $2.06 billion, an increase of 58 percent year on year and a decline of two percent sequentially. Fourth quarter Standard Products segment revenue was $323 million, up 19 percent year on year, and up one percent sequentially. On a full-year basis, HPMS revenue was $8.09 billion, up 71 percent from 2015 and Standard Products revenue was $1.22 billion, down two percent versus the same period a year ago.”

“When comparing revenue in the fourth quarter of 2016 with non-GAAP combined adjusted revenue for the fourth quarter of 2015, the HPMS segment was up 11 percent in fourth quarter versus the same period in 2015. Within the Automotive group, our fourth quarter revenue was $863 million, up 17 percent year on year due to strong demand for our automotive microcontroller and advanced analog products. Within the Secure Connected Devices group, our fourth quarter revenue was $569 million, up 10 percent year on year as all major product lines contributed to a seasonally solid quarter. In the Secure Interface and Infrastructure group, our fourth quarter revenue was $483 million up 29 percent year on year, as we experienced very strong growth in our interface and RF Power group, offset by previously communicated headwinds in the Digital Networking group, which we believe has now established a solid foundation. It is important to note, the year-on-year revenue growth in our RF Power group was against a significant trough level in the fourth quarter of 2015. Lastly, in our Secure Identification Solutions group, our fourth quarter revenue was $147 million, down 35 percent versus the same period a year ago, due to a combination of lower overall market demand and aggressive ASP compression.”

“In summary, we view our recent revenue performance as a positive indication that the Freescale and NXP integration continues to progress very well, and is ahead of schedule as our go-to-market and portfolio decisions are well aligned with our customer’s long-term requirements. Design win activity has strengthened and is broadly robust, though we continue to fine tune our go-to-market efforts in certain geographic markets.”

“Finally, 2016 was a year of significant highlights for NXP. We began the year on our journey to successfully integrate Freescale and NXP, both very successful and strong companies prior to the merger, with the opportunity to combine the portfolios and focus on solutions for our expanded customer base, while driving significant cost synergies to enhance market reach and profitability. In June, we announced the divestment of our Standard Products business, the premier discrete and logic supplier, soon to be known as Nexperia, to JAC Capital and Wise Road Capital. The divestment has achieved all needed regulatory approvals, the disentanglement process is going very well and the final close is expected during the first quarter of 2017. We wish Frans Scheper and the entire Nexperia team all possible success as an independent company with an improved opportunity to invest for growth beyond what NXP had constrained. And finally, in October we announced the agreement to be acquired by Qualcomm, creating a technology leader in the strategic and high growth markets of automotive, IoT, security and networking. The combined company will have broad market reach, very strong partnerships with a diverse customer base and all of the ingredients to create the industry powerhouse,” said Clemmer.

“Due to the disciplined and focused execution by the entire NXP team, we were able to drive exceptionally strong financial results throughout 2016. In the fourth quarter our GAAP operating margin was 7.1 percent, and for the full-year, GAAP operating margin was a loss of 1.6 percent. Throughout 2016, NXP’s GAAP operating margin was impacted by merger related accounting expenses associated with the Freescale merger. Our fourth quarter non-GAAP operating margin was 29.3 percent, representing a 600 basis points improvement compared to our first quarter of 2016 and 130 basis points better sequentially. Notwithstanding the challenging top-line environment we navigated throughout the year, our non-GAAP operating margin was 26.6 percent. In total, NXP has delivered non-GAAP operating margin improvement far in-excess of the original targets we set at the time the merger with Freescale was announced in March 2015, and significantly better than the targets we laid out at our Analyst Day in April 2016,” said Dan Durn, NXP Chief Financial Officer.

“In summary, I am very pleased with the progress we have made on our journey over the last 12 months. Our teams are driving high-impact outcomes relative to the ongoing merger integration, they are continuously focused on the delivery of identified synergy opportunities, and as a result we are creating significant value for all our stakeholders,” said Durn.

Note:

  1. As a result of the Freescale Semiconductor (“Freescale”) Merger, NXP has included previously reported Freescale product group revenue into its various existing High Performance Mixed Signal (HPMS) and Standard Products (STDP) segments. As of the fourth quarter 2015, the NXP HPMS business lines include the following (1) Automotive, which includes revenue from Freescale’s Automotive MCU and Analog & Sensor product groups; (2) Secure Connected Devices, which includes revenue from Freescale’s Microcontroller product group; and (3) Secure Interface & Infrastructure, previously known as Secure Interface & Power which includes revenue from Freescale’s Digital Networking and RF product groups. Additionally, certain portions of Freescale’s Analog & Sensor product group and Other revenue is apportioned to various NXP business lines consistent with NXP’s prior product and revenue classification approach, this included product-functionality alignment as well as intellectual property (IP) sales and licensing revenue.
  2. The preceding table sets forth our unaudited combined adjusted quarterly financial information, including estimates of segment and relative business line allocations, for the three-month and full-year period ended December 31, 2015 in addition to the as reported information for the three-month periods ended December 31, 2016, October 2, 2016, and December 31, 2015, as well as the full-year period ending December 31, 2016. This combined adjusted financial information has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements of NXP for the years ended December 31, 2015 and the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Freescale for the period ended October 2, 2015. In each case, we have excluded revenue generated in our RF Power business, which was divested in connection with the closing of the Freescale Merger on December 7, 2015, and our Bi-Polar business, which was divested on November 9, 2015 but have not otherwise made adjustments to the historical figures. In addition, the preceding information does not give effect to the financial impact on our statement of operations for any other acquisitions or divestitures made by NXP or Freescale during the periods presented.

    The unaudited combined adjusted financial information and segment allocation in the preceding table represent NXP management’s current estimate of the combined financial information based on historical financial information of NXP and Freescale. This unaudited combined adjusted financial information has been presented for informational purposes only and is not necessarily indicative of what the combined company’s results of operations actually would have been had the Freescale Merger been completed as of the dates indicated. In addition, the unaudited combined adjusted financial information does not purport to project the future financial position or results of operations of the combined company and do not reflect synergies that might be achieved from the combined operations.

    The unaudited combined adjusted financial information in the preceding table has not been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Regulation S-X of the U.S. Securities Act or US GAAP. Neither the assumptions underlying the adjustments nor the resulting adjusted financial information have been audited or reviewed in accordance with any generally accepted auditing standards. The information presented should be read in conjunction with the historical consolidated financial statements of NXP and Freescale, which are filed with the SEC.
  1. Combined adjusted revenue is the combined consolidated revenue of NXP and Freescale for each of the quarterly periods presented. The information excludes the divestment of previously announced business and the creation of joint-ventures. The unaudited adjusted financial information has been prepared for comparative purposes only and does not purport to be indicative of the revenue performance that would have been achieved had the acquisition taken place at the beginning of the periods shown. In addition, this information is not intended to be a projection of future results from the combined operations.
  2. Combined adjusted product revenue is the combination of revenue from the High Performance Mixed Signal (HPMS) and Standard Products (STDP) segments. Percent of quarterly total amounts may not add to 100 percent due to rounding

Guidance and Conference Call
As previously announced NXP will not hold an earnings call nor provide forward guidance for the first quarter of 2017 due to the pending acquisition of NXP by Qualcomm.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In managing NXP's business on a consolidated basis, management develops an annual operating plan, which is approved by our Board of Directors, using non-GAAP financial measures. In measuring performance against this plan, management considers the actual or potential impacts on these non-GAAP financial measures from actions taken to reduce costs with the goal of increasing our gross margin and operating margin and when assessing appropriate levels of research and development efforts. In addition, management relies upon these non-GAAP financial measures when making decisions about product spending, administrative budgets, and other operating expenses. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when coupled with the GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of the Company’s results of operations and the factors and trends affecting NXP’s business. We believe that they enable investors to perform additional comparisons of our operating results, to assess our liquidity and capital position and to analyze financial performance excluding the effect of expenses unrelated to operations, certain non-cash expenses and share-based compensation expense, which may obscure trends in NXP's underlying performance. This information also enables investors to compare financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management.

These non-GAAP financial measures are provided in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. 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. 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).” Please refer to the NXP Historic Financial Model file found on the Financial Information page of the Investor Relations section of our website at www.nxp.com/investor for additional information related to our rationale for using these non-GAAP financial measures, as well as the impact of these measures on the presentation of NXP's operations.

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) Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, (vi) Other income, (vii) Operating income (loss), (viii) Operating margin, (ix) Financial Income (expense), (x) EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and trailing 12 month adjusted EBITDA, and (xi) non-GAAP free cash flow and free cash flow as a percent of Revenue. 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, non-cash interest expense on convertible notes, extinguishment of debt, changes in the fair value of the warrant liability prior to January 1, 2016 and foreign exchange gains and losses.
