Qualcomm Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2013 Results

Conference Call

Qualcomm's fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal 2013 earnings conference call will be broadcast live on November 6, 2013, beginning at 1:45 p.m. Pacific Time (PT) at http://investor.qualcomm.com/events.cfm. This conference call will include a discussion of "Non-GAAP financial measures" as defined in Regulation G. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measures and information reconciling these Non-GAAP financial measures to the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, as well as other financial and statistical information to be discussed on the conference call, will be posted at www.qualcomm.com/investor immediately prior to commencement of the call. An audio replay will be available at http://investor.qualcomm.com/events.cfm and via telephone following the live call for 30 days thereafter. To listen to the replay via telephone, U.S. callers may dial (855) 859-2056 and international callers may dial (404) 537-3406. Callers should use reservation number 87075999.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Non-GAAP financial information presented herein should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, "Non-GAAP" is not a term defined by GAAP, and as a result, the Company's measure of Non-GAAP results might be different than similarly titled measures used by other companies. Reconciliations between GAAP and Non-GAAP results are presented herein.

The Company uses Non-GAAP financial information (i) to evaluate, assess and benchmark the Company's operating results on a consistent and comparable basis; (ii) to measure the performance and efficiency of the Company's ongoing core operating businesses, including the QCT (Qualcomm CDMA Technologies), QTL (Qualcomm Technology Licensing) and QWI (Qualcomm Wireless & Internet) segments; and (iii) to compare the performance and efficiency of these segments against each other and against competitors. Non-GAAP measurements of the following financial data are used by the Company: revenues, cost of equipment and services revenues, R&D expenses, SG&A expenses, operating income, net investment income, income or earnings before income taxes, effective tax rate, net income, diluted earnings per share, operating cash flow and free cash flow. The Company is able to assess what it believes is a more meaningful and comparable set of financial performance measures for the Company and its business segments by using Non-GAAP information. As a result, management compensation decisions and the review of executive compensation by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors focus primarily on Non-GAAP financial measures applicable to the Company and its business segments. The Company presents Non-GAAP financial information to provide greater transparency to investors with respect to its use of such information in financial and operational decision-making.

Non-GAAP information used by management excludes QSI and certain share-based compensation, acquisition-related items and tax items.

  • QSI is excluded because the Company expects to exit its strategic investments at various times, and the effects of fluctuations in the value of such investments and realized gains or losses are viewed by management as unrelated to the Company's operational performance.
  • Share-based compensation expense primarily relates to restricted stock units and stock options. Certain share-based compensation is excluded because management views such expenses as unrelated to the operating activities of the Company's ongoing core businesses. Further, the fair values of share-based awards are affected by factors that are variable on each grant date, which may include the Company's stock price, stock market volatility, expected award life, risk-free interest rates and expected dividend payouts in future years.
  • Acquisition-related items relate to amortization and impairment of certain intangible assets, recognition of the step-up of inventories to fair value and the related tax effects of these items starting with acquisitions completed in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, as well as any tax effects from restructuring the ownership of such acquired assets. Additionally, starting with acquisitions completed in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company began excluding expenses related to the termination of contracts that limit the use of the acquired intellectual property. These acquisition-related items are excluded and are not allocated to the Company's segments because management views such expenses as unrelated to the operating activities of the Company's ongoing core businesses. In addition, these charges are impacted by the size and timing of acquisitions, potentially obscuring period to period comparisons of the Company's operating businesses.
  • Certain tax items that are unrelated to the fiscal year in which they were recorded are excluded in order to provide a clearer understanding of the Company's ongoing Non-GAAP tax rate and after tax earnings.

The Company presents free cash flow, defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, to facilitate an understanding of the amount of cash flow generated that is available to grow its business and to create long-term stockholder value. In addition, management uses this measure to evaluate the Company's performance and to compare its operating performance with other companies in the industry.
