Intel sees further drop in sales on slow PC market

Friday 18 January 2013 | 09:07 CET | News

Intel reported fourth-quarter revenues of USD 13.5 billion, down 3 percent from a year earlier and slightly below its guidance of USD 13.6 billion. Its gross margin fell to 58.0 percent from 64.5, and operating profit was down 31 percent year-on-year to USD 3.2 billion. Net profit declined 27 percent to USD 2.5 billion, and EPS was down 25 percent to 48 cents. 

Revenues from the PC division fell 6 percent to USD 8.5 billion, while the data centre division grew by 4 percent to USD 2.8 billion. Revenue from other Intel products was down 7 percent to USD 1.0 billion. The company generated USD 6 billion in cash from operations, paid dividends of USD 1.1 billion and used USD 1.0 billion to repurchase 47 million shares of stock.

Intel CEO Paul Otellini said the market remained challenging. First-quarter revenues are forecast to drop to USD 12.7 billion, with a gross margin of 58 percent. Over the full year 2013, Intel expects a low single-digit increase in revenues and margin around 60 percent.
