NXP Semiconductors Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-year 2020 Results

Austin, Texas, UNITED STATES


EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, Feb. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

“NXP delivered full-year revenue of $8.6 billion, with 2020 being best characterized as two halves with completely different business trends. During the first half of the year, NXP was faced with the unprecedented shut down of our customers in most end markets and geographies because of the global pandemic. As we entered the second half of 2020, and our customers began to re-open, NXP experienced a very robust rebound in demand, which we anticipate continuing throughout 2021. In the fourth quarter, revenue was $2.5 billion, an increase of 9 percent year-on-year, and near the upper end of our guidance range. During this time, we experienced especially strong trends in the Automotive and Mobile end-markets,” said Kurt Sievers, NXP President and Chief Executive Officer.

“Notwithstanding a tumultuous 2020, revenue associated with key strategic growth areas accelerated throughout the year. We continued to maintain focused investments in critical R&D programs, which will assure the company’s long-term success, while simultaneously controlling non-essential, discretionary expenses, resulting in solid operating profitability and strong cash flow. Throughout the year, our number one priority was to assure the safety and health of all our employees. We are extremely proud of their adaptability, dedication and hard work in the face of adversity,” said Sievers.

Key Highlights

  • Fourth-quarter revenue was $2.5 billion, up 9.0 percent year-on-year;
  • Fourth-quarter GAAP gross margin was 51.4 percent, and GAAP operating margin was 18.5 percent;
  • Fourth-quarter non-GAAP gross margin was 52.9 percent, and non-GAAP operating margin was 30.5 percent;
  • Full-year cash flow from operations was $2,482 million, with net capex investments of $388 million, resulting in non-GAAP free cash flow of $2,094 million;
  • On November 19, 2020, the NXP Board of Directors approved the payment of an interim dividend for the fourth quarter 2020 of $0.375 per ordinary share;
  • In 2020, NXP returned $1,047 million to shareholders, through previously announced share repurchases and dividend payments;
  • On September 28, 2020, subsequent to the close of NXP's third quarter, the company fully redeemed the $1.35 billion of outstanding principal of the 4.125% Senior Notes due 2021 and the $400 million of outstanding principal of the 4.625% Senior Notes due 2022. The total amount of these redemptions, $1.83 billion, were paid from available cash on balance sheet.

NXP has based the guidance included in this release on judgments and estimates that management believes are reasonable given its assessment of historical trends and other information reasonably available as of the date of this release. Please note, the guidance included in this release consists of predictions only, and is subject to a wide range of known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond NXP's control. The guidance included in this release should not be regarded as representations by NXP that the estimated results will be achieved. Actual results may vary materially from the guidance we provide today. In relation to the use of non-GAAP financial information see the note regarding "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below. For the factors, risks, and uncertainties to which judgments, estimates and forward-looking statements generally are subject see the note regarding "Forward-looking Statements." We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, including the guidance set forth herein, to reflect future events or circumstances.

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 https://investors.nxp.com 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) adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and trailing 12 month adjusted EBITDA, and (xi) 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, and foreign exchange gains and losses.
