AUSTIN, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 22, 2009 — Freescale Semiconductor Holdings I, Ltd. today announced financial results for the third quarter ended October 2, 2009.

Highlights for the third quarter include:

  • Net sales of $893 million;
  • Trailing 12 month Adjusted EBITDA of $445 million;
  • Cash and cash equivalents of $1.33 billion at October 2, 2009.

“Third quarter results represent very strong execution on the part of the Freescale team,” said Rich Beyer, Chairman and CEO. "Revenues in our core businesses grew sequentially, operating profitability improved significantly and we ended the quarter with more than $1.3 billion in cash.”

Operating Results

Net sales for the third quarter of 2009 were $893 million, compared to $824 million in the second quarter of 2009 and $1.41 billion in the third quarter last year. The year over year sales decline was attributable to the company’s decision in 2008 to exit its cellular handset business as well as the challenging macroeconomic environment.

The reported loss from operations for the three months ended October 2, 2009, inclusive of $91 million of reorganization costs, was $261 million, compared to a loss of $345 million in the second quarter and a loss of $3.37 billion in the third quarter of 2008.

Adjusted operating earnings (defined in Note 1 to the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Information attached to this press release) for the three months ended October 2, 2009 were $12 million compared to a loss of $75 million in the second quarter of 2009 and profit of $191 million for the same period last year.

Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA), (defined in Note 1 to the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Information attached to this press release) was $119 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared to $38 million in the second quarter of 2009 and $322 million for the third quarter last year.
