Business Highlights

 

       Intel remains on track to meet its goal of achieving five nodes in four years and to regain transistor performance and power performance leadership by 2025. Along with Intel 7, Intel 4, the company’s first node using extreme ultraviolet (EUV) technology, is now in high-volume manufacturing. Intel also achieved a critical milestone on Intel 18A with the release of the 0.9 PDK. In addition, Intel announced one of the industry’s first glass substrates for next-generation advanced packaging, planned for the latter part of this decade. This breakthrough achievement will enable the continued scaling of transistors in a package and advance Moore’s Law to deliver data-centric applications.

       Continuing its investment in manufacturing capacity to create a geographically balanced, secure and resilient supply chain, Intel opened Fab 34 in Leixlip, Ireland, during the quarter. Combined with the company’s planned wafer fabrication facility in Magdeburg, Germany, and planned assembly and test facility in Wrocław, Poland, this will help create a first-of-its-kind, end-to-end leading-edge semiconductor manufacturing value chain in Europe.

       This week, Intel shared its plans to begin installation of the world’s first high-NA EUV tool for commercial use by the end of the year to continue the company’s modernization and infrastructure expansion of the Gordon Moore Park at Ronler Acres in Oregon, one of the world’s leading semiconductor innovation and productization centers.

       Intel has submitted all four of its major manufacturing proposals in Arizona, New Mexico, Ohio and Oregon, representing more than $100 billion of U.S. manufacturing and research investments, to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s CHIPS Program Office.

       Intel announced that a major customer committed to Intel 18A and Intel 3 with a meaningful pre-payment, allowing the company to accelerate its plans to build two new leading-edge chip factories at its Ocotillo campus in Chandler, Arizona. In addition, IFS and Tower Semiconductor announced an agreement where Intel will provide foundry services and 300 mm manufacturing capacity to help Tower serve its customers globally, utilizing Intel’s advanced manufacturing facility in New Mexico.

       At Intel Innovation 2023, Intel outlined its strategy to bring AI everywhere, making it more accessible across all workloads, from client and edge to network and cloud. The company showed how it is delivering AI capabilities across its hardware products and making it accessible through open multi-architecture software solutions.

       In DCAI, Intel’s 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor continues its strong ramp, with the world’s top-10 cloud service providers now deploying it in general availability. In addition, the company’s 5th Gen Intel® Xeon® processor, code-named Emerald Rapids, is in production and began shipping to customers this month, officially launching Dec. 14. Customer momentum continues with Intel® Gaudi®2 accelerators, whose competitive performance was recently validated by MLCommons benchmarking results. Together with Stability AI, Intel is building one of the world’s largest AI supercomputers entirely on 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and 4,000 Intel Gaudi2 AI accelerators.

       In client computing, Intel is ushering in the age of the AI PC with Intel® Core™ Ultra processors, code-named Meteor Lake. Built on Intel 4, the Intel Core Ultra processor began shipping to customers in the third quarter and will officially launch Dec. 14, along with the 5th Gen Intel Xeon processor. Earlier this month, Intel launched the new Intel® Core® 14th Generation desktop processor family, delivering the world’s fastest desktop frequencies and best desktop experience for enthusiasts.

       In network and edge, Intel launched the latest OpenVINO™ toolkit version 2023.1, the AI inferencing and deployment runtime of choice for developers on client and edge platforms, with ai.io and Fit:match demonstrating how they use OpenVINO to accelerate their applications at Intel Innovation. 

       Mobileye achieved record third-quarter revenue, growing 18% year over year, and announced meaningful design wins for its advanced SuperVision and Chauffeur solutions with automakers FAW and Polestar.

As Intel continues to look for innovative ways to unlock value for shareholders, the company recently announced its intent to separate its Programmable Solutions Group (PSG) operations into a standalone business. This will give PSG the autonomy and flexibility it needs to fully accelerate its growth and more effectively compete in the FPGA industry. The company may explore opportunities with private investors to accelerate the business’s growth, with Intel retaining a majority stake. Over the next two to three years, Intel intends to conduct an IPO for PSG.

In the third quarter, Intel also agreed to sell a 10% stake in its IMS Nanofabrication business (IMS) to TSMC, valuing IMS at approximately $4.3 billion, consistent with the valuation of the recent stake sale to Bain Capital Special Situations. Together, these transactions underscore Intel’s focus on advancing its IDM 2.0 strategy, driving growth in its core businesses and creating value for shareholders across all of its assets.

Q4 2023 Dividend

The company’s board of directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.125 per share on the company’s common stock, which will be payable Dec. 1, 2023, to shareholders of record as of Nov. 7, 2023.

Actual results may differ materially from Intel’s Business Outlook as a result of, among other things, the factors described under “Forward-Looking Statements” below. The gross margin and EPS outlook are based on the mid-point of the revenue range.

*Effective January 2023, Intel increased the estimated useful life of certain production machinery and equipment from five years to eight years. When compared to the estimated useful life in place as of the end of 2022, Intel expects total depreciation expense in 2023 to be reduced by $4.2 billion. Intel expects this change will result in an approximately $2.5 billion increase to gross margin, a $400 million decrease in R&D expenses and a $1.3 billion decrease in ending inventory values.

We derive a substantial majority of our revenue from our principal products that incorporate various components and technologies, including a microprocessor and chipset, a stand-alone system-on-chip or a multichip package, which are based on Intel architecture.

Revenue for our reportable and non-reportable operating segments is primarily related to the following product lines:

       CCG includes products designed for end-user form factors, focusing on higher growth segments of 2 in 1, thin-and-light, commercial and gaming, and growing other products such as connectivity and graphics.

       DCAI includes a broad portfolio of central processing units (CPUs), domain-specific accelerators and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), designed to empower data center and hyperscale solutions for diverse computing needs.

       NEX includes programmable platforms and high-performance connectivity and compute solutions designed for market segments such as cloud networking, telecommunications networks, on-premises edge, software and platforms.

       Mobileye includes the development and deployment of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving technologies and solutions.

       IFS provides differentiated full stack solutions including wafer fabrication, packaging, chiplet standard and software.

We have sales and marketing, manufacturing, engineering, finance and administration groups. Expenses for these groups are generally allocated to the operating segments.

We have an “all other” category that includes revenue, expenses and charges such as:

       results of operations from non-reportable segments not otherwise presented, and from start-up businesses that support our initiatives;

       historical results of operations from divested businesses;

       amounts included within restructuring and other charges;

       employee benefits, compensation, impairment charges, and other expenses not allocated to the operating segments; and

       acquisition-related costs, including amortization and any impairment of acquisition-related intangibles and goodwill.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with US GAAP, this document contains references to the non-GAAP financial measures below. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with useful supplemental information about our operating performance, enable comparison of financial trends and 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 in operating our business and measuring our performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are used in our performance-based RSUs and our cash bonus plans.

Our non-GAAP financial measures reflect adjustments based on one or more of the following items, as well as the related income tax effects. Beginning in 2023, income tax effects are calculated using a fixed long-term projected tax rate of 13% across all adjustments. We project this long-term non-GAAP tax rate on an annual basis using a five-year non-GAAP financial projection that excludes the income tax effects of each adjustment. The projected non-GAAP tax rate also considers factors such as our tax structure, our tax positions in various jurisdictions, and key legislation in significant jurisdictions where we operate. This long-term non-GAAP tax rate may be subject to change for a variety of reasons, including the rapidly evolving global tax environment, significant changes in our geographic earnings mix, or changes to our strategy or business operations. Management uses this non-GAAP tax rate in managing internal short- and long-term operating plans and in evaluating our performance; we believe this approach facilitates comparison of our operating results and provides useful evaluation of our current operating performance. Prior-period non-GAAP financial measures have been retroactively adjusted to reflect this updated approach.

Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with US GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with US GAAP and reconciliations from these results should be carefully evaluated.

 










Non-GAAP adjustment or measure

Definition

Usefulness to management and investors

Acquisition-related adjustments

Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets consists of amortization of intangible assets such as developed technology, brands, and customer relationships acquired in connection with business combinations. Charges related to the amortization of these intangibles are recorded within both cost of sales and MG&A in our US GAAP financial statements. Amortization charges are recorded over the estimated useful life of the related acquired intangible asset, and thus are generally recorded over multiple years.

We exclude amortization charges for our acquisition-related intangible assets for purposes of calculating certain non-GAAP measures because these charges are inconsistent in size and are significantly impacted by the timing and valuation of our acquisitions. These adjustments facilitate a useful evaluation of our current operating performance and comparison to our past operating performance and provide investors with additional means to evaluate cost and expense trends.

Share-based compensation

Share-based compensation consists of charges related to our employee equity incentive plans.

We exclude charges related to share-based compensation for purposes of calculating certain non-GAAP measures because we believe these adjustments provide better comparability to peer company results and because these charges are not viewed by management as part of our core operating performance. We believe these adjustments provide investors with a useful view, through the eyes of management, of our core business model, how management currently evaluates core operational performance, and additional means to evaluate expense trends, including in comparison to other peer companies.

Restructuring and other charges

Restructuring charges are costs associated with a formal restructuring plan and are primarily related to employee severance and benefit arrangements. Other charges may include periodic goodwill and asset impairments, certain pension charges, and costs associated with restructuring activity. Q3 2023 includes an EC-imposed fine and a fee related to the termination of our agreement to acquire Tower.

We exclude restructuring and other charges, including any adjustments to charges recorded in prior periods, for purposes of calculating certain non-GAAP measures because these costs do not reflect our core operating performance. These adjustments facilitate a useful evaluation of our core operating performance and comparisons to past operating results and provide investors with additional means to evaluate expense trends.

(Gains) losses on equity investments, net

(Gains) losses on equity investments, net consists of ongoing mark-to-market adjustments on marketable equity securities, observable price adjustments on non-marketable equity securities, related impairment charges, and the sale of equity investments and other.

We exclude these non-operating gains and losses for purposes of calculating certain non-GAAP measures because it provides better comparability between periods. The exclusion reflects how management evaluates the core operations of the business.

Gains (losses) from divestiture

Gains (losses) are recognized at the close of a divestiture, or over a specified deferral period when deferred consideration is received at the time of closing. Based on our ongoing obligation under the NAND wafer manufacturing and sale agreement entered into in connection with the first closing of the sale of our NAND memory business on December 29, 2021, a portion of the initial closing consideration was deferred and will be recognized between first and second closing.

We exclude gains or losses resulting from divestitures for purposes of calculating certain non-GAAP measures because they do not reflect our current operating performance. These adjustments facilitate a useful evaluation of our current operating performance and comparisons to past operating results.

Adjusted free cash flow

We reference a non-GAAP financial measure of adjusted free cash flow, which is used by management when assessing our sources of liquidity, capital resources, and quality of earnings. Adjusted free cash flow is operating cash flow adjusted for 1) additions to property, plant and equipment, net of proceeds from capital grants and partner contributions, 2) payments on finance leases, and 3) proceeds from the McAfee equity sale.

This non-GAAP financial measure is helpful in understanding our capital requirements and sources of liquidity by providing an additional means to evaluate the cash flow trends of our business. Since the 2017 divestiture, McAfee equity distributions and sales contributed to prior operating and free cash flow, and while the McAfee equity sale in Q1 2022 would have typically been excluded from adjusted free cash flow as an equity sale, we believe including the sale proceeds in adjusted free cash flow facilitate a better, more consistent comparison to past presentations of liquidity.
