Freescale Semiconductor Announces Third Quarter 2015 Results

AUSTIN, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 22, 2015 — Freescale Semiconductor, Ltd. (NYSE: FSL) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended October 2, 2015. Highlights include:

GAAP Results


Non-GAAP Results*

• Net sales of $1.12 billion

• EBITDA** of $308 million

• Gross margin of 48.1%

• Adjusted earnings per share of $0.54

• Earnings per share of $0.25


“Third quarter results represented another quarter of solid execution in a challenging environment,” said Gregg Lowe, president and CEO. Although revenues declined sequentially and year-over-year, the team delivered gross margins that were in line with Q2 and 180 basis points above third quarter last year. We managed operating expenses lower than prior periods and continued to deleverage the balance sheet. This, combined with the execution on gross margins, contributed to adjusted earnings per share of $0.54.”

“The fourth quarter will pose challenges as market conditions have continued to weaken,” Lowe said. “Our results will be impacted in the quarter by normal seasonal declines in our automotive related businesses, continued weakness in wireless infrastructure and enterprise spending which will negatively impact our RF and Digital Networking businesses and weak end-demand in industrial which will lead to lower Microcontroller revenues. Looking past the near term demand softness, we are encouraged by the growth prospects in our core markets and the significant value creation inherent in the combination with NXP Semiconductors.”

*Adjusted for various items as indicated and defined in Note 1 to the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Information attached to this press release.
**Reflects EBITDA excluding the effect of other items.
