SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)  AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) today announ짯ced sel짯ec짯ted preli짯mi짯na짯ry finan짯cial results for the third quar짯ter of 2022.

Third quar짯ter reve짯nue is expec짯ted to be appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly $5.6 bil짯li짯on, an increase of 29% year-over-year. AMD pre짯vious짯ly expec짯ted reve짯nue to increase appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly 55% year-over-year at the mid-point of gui짯dance. Preli짯mi짯na짯ry results reflect lower than expec짯ted Cli짯ent seg짯ment reve짯nue resul짯ting from redu짯ced pro짯ces짯sor ship짯ments due to a wea짯k짯er than expec짯ted PC mar짯ket and signi짯fi짯cant inven짯to짯ry cor짯rec짯tion actions across the PC sup짯p짯ly chain.

Reve짯nue for the Data Cen짯ter, Gam짯ing, and Embedded seg짯ments each increased signi짯fi짯cant짯ly year-over-year in-line with the company셲 expectations.

Gross mar짯gin is expec짯ted to be appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly 42% and non-GAAP(*) gross mar짯gin is expec짯ted to be appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly 50%. AMD pre짯vious짯ly expec짯ted non-GAAP gross mar짯gin to be appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly 54%. The gross mar짯gin short짯fall to expec짯ta짯ti짯ons was pri짯ma짯ri짯ly due to lower reve짯nue dri짯ven by lower Cli짯ent pro짯ces짯sor unit ship짯ments and avera짯ge sel짯ling pri짯ce (ASP). In addi짯ti짯on, the third quar짯ter results are expec짯ted to include appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly $160 mil짯li짯on of char짯ges pri짯ma짯ri짯ly for inven짯to짯ry, pri짯cing, and rela짯ted reser짯ves in the gra짯phics and cli짯ent businesses.
Third quar짯ter ope짯ra짯ting expen짯ses are expec짯ted to be appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly $2.4 bil짯li짯on and non-GAAP ope짯ra짯ting expen짯ses are expec짯ted to be appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly $1.5 bil짯li짯on. Non-GAAP ope짯ra짯ting expen짯ses are lower than pre짯vious expec짯ta짯ti짯ons of $1.6 bil짯li짯on dri짯ven by lower varia짯ble com짯pen짯sa짯ti짯on expen짯ses in the quarter.

The PC mar짯ket wea짯k짯en짯ed signi짯fi짯cant짯ly in the quar짯ter, said AMD Chair and CEO Dr. Lisa Su. 쏻hile our pro짯duct port짯fo짯lio remains very strong, macroe짯co짯no짯mic con짯di짯ti짯ons dro짯ve lower than expec짯ted PC demand and a signi짯fi짯cant inven짯to짯ry cor짯rec짯tion across the PC sup짯p짯ly chain. As we navi짯ga짯te the cur짯rent mar짯ket con짯di짯ti짯ons, we are plea짯sed with the per짯for짯mance of our Data Cen짯ter, Embedded, and Gam짯ing seg짯ments and the strength of our diver짯si짯fied busi짯ness model and balan짯ce sheet. We remain focu짯sed on deli짯ve짯ring our lea짯der짯ship pro짯duct road짯map and look for짯ward to laun짯ching our next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on 5nm data cen짯ter and gra짯phics pro짯ducts later this quarter.
