Applied Materials Announces Second Quarter 2022 Results

AMAT
  • Quarterly revenue of $6.25 billion, up 12 percent year over year
  • GAAP operating margin of 30.3 percent and non-GAAP operating margin of 30.6 percent, up 2.0 points and down 1.1 points year over year, respectively
  • GAAP EPS of $1.74 and non-GAAP EPS of $1.85, up 22 percent and 13 percent year over year, respectively

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMAT) today reported results for its second quarter ended May 1, 2022.

Second Quarter Results

Applied generated revenue of $6.25 billion. On a GAAP basis, the company achieved gross margin of 46.9 percent, operating income of $1.89 billion or 30.3 percent of net sales, and earnings per share (EPS) of $1.74.

On a non-GAAP adjusted basis, the company reported gross margin of 47.0 percent, operating income of $1.91 billion or 30.6 percent of net sales, and EPS of $1.85.

The company generated $415 million in cash from operations and returned $2.01 billion to shareholders including $1.80 billion in share repurchases and $211 million in dividends.

“Demand for Applied Materials’ products and services has never been stronger, yet we remain constrained by on-going supply chain issues,” said Gary Dickerson, President and CEO. “Our priority is to work quickly and creatively across the supply chain to bring more industry capacity on-line, while accelerating the technology inflections that we believe will enable Applied to outgrow the semiconductor market in the years ahead.”

Business Outlook

In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, Applied expects net sales to be approximately $6.25 billion, plus or minus $400 million, which includes the expected impact of ongoing supply chain challenges. Non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS is expected to be in the range of $1.59 to $1.95.

This outlook for non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS excludes known charges related to completed acquisitions of $0.01 per share, includes the normalized tax benefit of share-based compensation of $0.02 per share and includes a net income tax benefit related to intra-entity intangible asset transfers of $0.02 per share, but does not reflect any items that are unknown at this time, such as any additional charges related to acquisitions or other non-operational or unusual items, as well as other tax related items, which we are not able to predict without unreasonable efforts due to their inherent uncertainty.

Use of Non-GAAP Adjusted Financial Measures

Applied provides investors with certain non-GAAP adjusted financial measures, which are adjusted for the impact of certain costs, expenses, gains and losses, including certain items related to mergers and acquisitions; restructuring and severance charges and any associated adjustments; certain incremental expenses related to COVID-19; impairments of assets; gain or loss on strategic investments; certain income tax items and other discrete adjustments. On a non-GAAP basis, the tax effect related to share-based compensation is recognized ratably over the fiscal year. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP are provided in the financial tables included in this release.

Management uses these non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to evaluate the company’s operating and financial performance and for planning purposes, and as performance measures in its executive compensation program. Applied believes these measures enhance an overall understanding of its performance and investors’ ability to review the company’s business from the same perspective as the company’s management, and facilitate comparisons of this period’s results with prior periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that management does not believe are indicative of Applied's ongoing operating performance. There are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because the non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, and may exclude certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Webcast Information

Applied Materials will discuss these results during an earnings call that begins at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time today. A live webcast and related slide presentation will be available at www.appliedmaterials.com. A replay will be available on the website beginning at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time today.
