DALLAS -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today reported second-quarter revenue of $3.29 billion, net income of $683 million and earnings per share of 62 cents.

Regarding the company's performance and returns to shareholders, Rich Templeton, TI's chairman, president and CEO, made the following comments:

  • "Revenue for the quarter came in just above the middle of our expected range and earnings were near the top of the range, marking another quarter of solid execution.
  • "We delivered 8 percent year-over-year revenue growth, or 13 percent when legacy wireless revenue is excluded. Analog and Embedded Processing comprised 82 percent of second-quarter revenue, 4 points higher than a year ago.
  • "Gross margin of 57.1 percent, a new record, reflects the quality of our Analog and Embedded Processing portfolio and the efficiency of our manufacturing strategy.
  • "The strength of our business model is reflected in our generation of cash flow from operations. Free cash flow for the trailing twelve-month period was up 10 percent from a year ago to $3.2 billion, or 25 percent of revenue. This is consistent with our target of 20-30 percent.
  • "We returned $4.2 billion to shareholders in the past twelve months through dividends paid and stock repurchases. Our strategy to return to shareholders all free cash flow not needed for net debt retirement, and to return proceeds from exercises of equity compensation, reflects our confidence in the long-term sustainability of our business model.
  • "Our balance sheet remains strong, with $2.8 billion of cash and short-term investments at the end of the quarter, 82 percent of which was owned by the company's U.S. entities. Inventory days were 111, consistent with our model of 105-115 days.
  • "TI's outlook for the third quarter of 2014 is for revenue in the range of $3.31 billion to $3.59 billion and earnings per share between $0.66 and $0.76. The annual effective tax rate for 2014 is expected to be about 28 percent, unchanged from our previous guidance."

    Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

    During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

    She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
