Regarding the company’s performance and returns to shareholders, Haviv Ilan, TI’s president and CEO, made the following comments:

  • “Revenue was flat sequentially and decreased 14% from the same quarter a year ago. During the quarter, automotive growth continued and industrial weakness broadened.
  • “Our cash flow from operations of $6.5 billion for the trailing 12 months again underscored the strength of our business model, the quality of our product portfolio and the benefit of 300-mm production. Free cash flow for the same period was $1.6 billion.
  • “Over the past 12 months we invested $3.7 billion in R&D and SG&A, invested $4.9 billion in capital expenditures and returned $5.6 billion to owners.
  • “TI’s fourth quarter outlook is for revenue in the range of $3.93 billion to $4.27 billion and earnings per share between $1.35 and $1.57. We continue to expect our 2023 effective tax rate to be about 13% to 14%.”
