AMD Beats Big - Guides Up

May 4, 2022

Record quarterly revenue of $5.9 billion grew 71% year-over-year; Gross margin grew 2 percentage points and non-GAAP gross margin grew 7 percentage points year-over-year ―

AMD reported revenue for the first quarter of 2022 of $5.9 billion, gross margin of 48%, operating income of $951 million, operating margin of 16%, net income of $786 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.56. On a non-GAAP basis, gross margin was 53%, operating income was $1.8 billion, net income was $1.6 billion and diluted earnings per share was $1.13. First quarter 2022 results include partial quarter financial results from the recently completed acquisition of Xilinx which closed February 14, 2022.

Excluding Xilinx, AMD had record quarterly revenue of $5.3 billion, non-GAAP gross margin of 51% and non-GAAP operating margin of 30%.

AMD's EPS of $1.13 killed the $0.91 which was expected. The firm's revenue of $5.89 billion out beat the expected $5.52 billion. AMD guided Q2 $6.5 billion in sales which is more than expectations of $6.38 billion.

“The first quarter marked a significant inflection point in our journey to scale and transform AMD as we delivered record revenue and closed our strategic acquisition of Xilinx,” said AMD Chair and CEO Dr. Lisa Su. “Each of our businesses grew by a significant double digit percentage year-over-year, led by EPYC server processor revenue more than doubling for the third straight quarter. Demand remains strong for our leadership products, with our increased full-year guidance reflecting higher AMD organic growth and the addition of the growing Xilinx business.”

Q1 2022 Results
  • Revenue of $5.9 billion was up 71% year-over-year and 22% quarter-over-quarter driven by higher revenue in the Computing and Graphics and Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segments and the inclusion of Xilinx revenue.
  • Gross margin was 48%, an increase of 2 percentage points year-over-year and a decrease of 2 percentage points quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by higher server processor revenue and high margin Xilinx revenue, partially offset by amortization of intangible assets and acquisition-related costs. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to amortization of intangible assets and acquisition-related costs.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin was 53%, an increase of 7 percentage points year-over-year and 3 percentage points quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by higher server processor revenue and high margin Xilinx revenue. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily driven by high margin Xilinx revenue, higher server processor revenue and richer client product mix.  
  • Operating income was $951 million compared to $662 million a year ago and $1.2 billion in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by higher revenue and gross profit, partially offset by amortization of intangible assets and acquisition-related costs. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to amortization of intangible assets and acquisition-related costs.
  • Record non-GAAP operating income was $1.8 billion compared to $762 million a year ago and $1.3 billion in the prior quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were primarily driven by higher gross profit.
  • Net income was $786 million compared to $555 million a year ago and $974 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by higher operating income. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to lower operating income related to amortization of intangible assets and acquisition-related costs.
  • Record non-GAAP net income was $1.6 billion compared to $642 million a year ago and $1.1 billion in the prior quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were primarily driven by higher operating income.

Quarterly Financial Segment Summary

  • Record Computing and Graphics segment revenue was $2.8 billion, up 33% year-over-year and 8% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was driven by Ryzen™ and Radeon™ processor sales. The quarter-over-quarter increase was driven by Ryzen™ processor sales.
    • Client processor average selling price (ASP) increased year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter driven by a richer mix of Ryzen processor sales.
    • GPU ASP increased year-over-year driven by high end Radeon processor sales and decreased quarter-over-quarter due to a lower mix of data center GPU revenue.
    • Record operating income was $723 million compared to $485 million a year ago and $566 million in the prior quarter. Operating income improvements were primarily driven by higher revenue, partially offset by higher operating expenses.
  • Record Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment revenue was $2.5 billion, up 88% year-over-year and 13% quarter-over-quarter driven by higher EPYC™ processor revenue, semi-custom and embedded product sales.
    • Record operating income was $881 million compared to $277 million a year ago and $762 million in the prior quarter. Operating income improvements were primarily driven by higher revenue and an $83 million licensing gain.

Current Outlook

For the second quarter of 2022, AMD expects revenue to be approximately $6.5 billion, plus or minus $200 million, an increase of approximately 69% year-over-year and approximately 10% quarter-over-quarter.
