EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands — NXP Semiconductors N.V. (Nasdaq: NXPI) today reported financial results for its third quarter 2010, and provided guidance for the fourth quarter.

“The third quarter represented our sixth consecutive quarter of growth and significant operational improvement, as we continue to execute on our High Performance Mixed Signal solutions strategy,” said Richard Clemmer, NXP Chief Executive Officer. “Compared to the year ago quarter, revenue was up 25 percent on a comparable basis and NXP achieved 17.4 percent non-GAAP operating margin as we continued to see good results from our Redesign Program.

“Our success in winning new designs in our focus areas contributed to market share gains in High Performance Mixed Signal over the past year. We’ve seen particular success in identification, automotive entertainment and networking, microcontrollers, base stations and lighting markets. Our HPMS business represents 70 percent of NXP Product Revenue and is now operating at 56.5 percent non-GAAP gross margin and 23.1 percent non-GAAP operating margin, with room for further margin expansion. And we continue to see growth in new design wins in HPMS as customers turn to NXP to help them optimize their electronic end equipment. Product Revenue is the combination of our HPMS and Standard Products segments.

“We also made significant progress during the quarter in improving NXP’s capital structure. We completed an IPO with $450 million in net proceeds as well as a $1 billion bond offering which extended debt maturities to 2018. We generated $158 million in cash from operations during the quarter and since the end of last year, we have reduced net debt by $555 million,” Clemmer said.
