AMD Post Financial results for Q2 2014
AMD today have posted online their financial results for the second quarter (Q2) of 2014, with a quarterly revenue of $1.44 billion, operating income of $63 million and a net loss of $36 million. This is an improvement for AMD both QoQ (Quarter on Quarter) and YoY (Year on Year), but how long until AMD can profit?
The table below compared AMD's Financials to that of last quarter and this time last year.
|Quarter on Quarter||Year on Year|
|Q2 2014||Q1 2014||Q2 2014||Q2 2013|
|Revenue (Billion)||$ 1.44|
|$ 1.44||$ 1.16|
|Operating income (Million)||$ 63||$ 49||$ 63||$ 29|
|Net Loss (Million)||$ 36||$ 20||$ 36||$ 74|
As we can see from the chart above AMD has improved on the last quarter and has improved greatly in the last year, halving their net loss since this time last year. However this is still a loss and AMD need to continue to improve to reach profitability again, add this to the fact that AMD has a mountain of debt, which is $2.21 Billion, an increase from the $2.14 Billion it was last quarter.
AMDs Graphics and visuals department shown some of the best increases at AMD, with a revenue increase of 5% over last quarter and a 141% increase YoY. This is due, in part, to the high level of Gaming chips sold for the Next, now current Generation of Gaming Consoles.
AMD expect to have gains in revenue of around 2% next quarter, but the following quarter is where things will get interesting. Here AMD will release it's first ARM processor, names Seattle, and more interestingly in 2016, or late 2015 will be new x86/GCN APU, which AMD are being highly seceretive about (They haven't even said whether or not it will use a bulldozer based CPU core design, which suggests a new architecture may be coming).
