TI reports 2Q14 financial results and shareholder returns

Free cash flow and associated ratios

This release also includes references to free cash flow and ratios based on that measure.  These are financial measures that were not prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Free cash flow was calculated by subtracting Capital expenditures from the most directly comparable GAAP measure, Cash flows from operating activities (also referred to as cash flow from operations).

The company believes that free cash flow and the associated ratios provide insight into its liquidity, its cash-generating capability and the amount of cash potentially available to return to investors, as well as insight into its financial performance.  These non-GAAP measures are supplemental to the comparable GAAP measures.

Reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP-based measures is provided in the table below.

We urge you to carefully consider the following important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations of TI or its management:

  • Market demand for semiconductors, particularly in markets such as personal electronics, especially the mobile phone sector, and industrial;

  • TI's ability to compete in products and prices in an intensely competitive industry;
  • TI's ability to maintain and enforce a strong intellectual property portfolio and obtain needed licenses from third parties;
  • Expiration of license agreements between TI and its patent licensees, and market conditions reducing royalty payments to TI;

  • Natural events such as severe weather and earthquakes in the locations in which TI, its customers or its suppliers operate;
  • Availability and cost of raw materials, utilities, manufacturing equipment, third-party manufacturing services and manufacturing technology;
  • Changes in the tax rate applicable to TI as the result of changes in tax law, the jurisdictions in which profits are determined to be earned and taxed, the outcome of tax audits and the ability to realize deferred tax assets;
  • Changes in laws and regulations to which TI or its suppliers are or may become subject, such as those imposing fees or reporting or substitution costs relating to the discharge of emissions into the environment or the use of certain raw materials in our manufacturing processes;
  • Losses or curtailments of purchases from key customers and the timing and amount of distributor and other customer inventory adjustments;
  • Financial difficulties of our distributors or their promotion of competing product lines to TI's detriment;
  • A loss suffered by a customer or distributor of TI with respect to TI-consigned inventory;
  • Customer demand that differs from our forecasts;
  • The financial impact of inadequate or excess TI inventory that results from demand that differs from projections;

  • Product liability or warranty claims, claims based on epidemic or delivery failure or recalls by TI customers for a product containing a TI part;
  • TI's ability to recruit and retain skilled personnel;
  • Timely implementation of new manufacturing technologies and installation of manufacturing equipment, and the ability to obtain needed third-party foundry and assembly/test subcontract services;
  • TI's obligation to make principal and interest payments on its debt;
  • TI's ability to successfully integrate and realize opportunities for growth from acquisitions, and our ability to realize our expectations regarding the amount and timing of restructuring charges and associated cost savings; and
