Intel Reports Third-Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Intel Corporation today reported third-quarter 2021 financial results. "Q3 shone an even greater spotlight on the global demand for semiconductors, where Intel has the unique breadth and scale to lead. Our focus on execution continued as we started delivering on our IDM 2.0 commitments. We broke ground on new fabs, shared our accelerated path to regain process performance leadership, and unveiled our most dramatic architectural innovations in a decade. We also announced major customer wins across every part of our business," said Pat Gelsinger, Intel CEO. "We are still in the early stages of our journey, but I see the enormous opportunity ahead, and I couldn't be prouder of the progress we are making towards that opportunity."

In the third quarter, the company generated $9.9 billion in cash from operations and paid dividends of $1.4 billion. Intel CFO George Davis announced plans to retire from Intel in May 2022. He will continue to serve in his current role while Intel conducts a search for a new CFO and until his successor is appointed. Third-quarter revenue was led by strong recovery in the Enterprise portion of DCG and in IOTG, which saw higher demand amid recovery from the economic impacts of COVID-19. The Client Computing Group (CCG) was down due to lower notebook volumes due to industry-wide component shortages, and on lower adjacent revenue, partially offset by higher average selling prices (ASPs) and strength in desktop.
Business Highlights
  • Selected by the U.S. government to provide commercial foundry services for the government's RAMP-C program.
  • Announced Amazon as first customer to use Intel Foundry Services' packaging services, and a partnership with Qualcomm to use the future Intel 20A process technology.
  • Broke ground on two new leading-edge chip factories at Intel's Ocotillo campus in Chandler, Arizona, three months ahead of schedule.
  • Shared process and packaging roadmap updates for delivering five nodes within four years, putting Intel on a path to restore process performance per watt parity in 2024 and leadership in 2025 with key process innovations, including RibbonFET and PowerVia. Also introduced new advanced packaging technologies, Foveros Omni and Foveros Direct, for 2023.
  • Detailed Intel's biggest architectural shifts in a generation with the first in-depth look at Alder Lake, our first performance hybrid architecture with two new generations of x86 cores; Sapphire Rapids, our new standard-setting data center architecture; our new discrete gaming graphics processing unit architecture; new infrastructure processing units; and Ponte Vecchio, our tour-de-force GPU architecture with Intel's highest ever compute density to accelerate AI, HPC, and advanced analytics workloads.
  • Introduced the new Intel Arc brand for our upcoming high-performance graphics products, covering hardware and software, and services.
  • Introduced four new Intel Core processor-based Surface design wins with Microsoft, including the first Surface device to be Intel Evo platform verified, and two designs that bring Thunderbolt connectivity to the Surface lineup.
  • Announced availability of the 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor (Ice Lake) for AWS customers via the new Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) M6i instances and for Google Cloud customers via the new Compute Engine N2
  • Announced U.S. Department of Energy selected next-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors (Sapphire Rapids) to power supercomputers.
  • Announced strategic global partnerships with ZEEKR and Sixt SE and additional plans to unveil Mobileye's robotaxi equipped with the Mobileye Drive system.
  • Introduced second-generation neuromorphic research chip, Loihi 2, fabricated with a pre-production version of the Intel 4 process.
As part of its IDM 2.0 strategy, Intel will be making a series of product and technology announcements at its upcoming Innovation virtual event on October 27-28, 2021. The conference is designed for developers, industry insiders, and will feature technical sessions on Intel's AI, 5G, edge, cloud connectivity, and client applications.

just wow

so $9.9 billion revenue in a quarter basically $3,300 mil/mo or ~ $254 mil/week or $36.265 Mil/day or $1.512 mil/hr

that's a pretty obscene amount of coin

I wonder how many cpus/minute that is lol

Their finances are looking good, at worst. Really, people should stop trying to pain Intel as on the way to dying.
Few billions of net income each quarter is amazing.

Saying stocks continue to climb after a day of loss is just stating a false comment. I'm not looking at them half empty, I'm calling a BS post.

I'm not real sure what the proverbial "market" thinks to make their stock go down, but these numbers are gangbusters. Last year was gangbusters too due to covid, and was supposedly going to make for hard comparisons in 2021, but here's 2021 and this looks to me like they knocked it out of the park. EPS up 64% and net income up 60%. The only thing that went up a lot here was R&D. These are stupidly good numbers.




And INTC demolished their expected EPS numbers :

Because they just spent more than they ever have, messing with margins, and asking for the government to give them a targeted stimulus to bail out.

If you look carefully into the financial report, you will notice that Intel sold the NAND flash business to SK Hynix. It is classified as gain in equity investment but not in daily operations.
Excluding this one-time charge, the net income will be ~$5.1B and the net income per share will be ~$1.26.

even with this, Intel still came in under expectations, due to obvious factors.

Which is still very good and well above expectations

Great buy opportunity, Intel is not going away any time soon, even if they're lagging behind and it will take a while to get things back on track
