CEO Richard Templeton reflected on the quarter in prepared remarks:

Our balance sheet remains strong, with $3.2 billion of cash and short-term investments at the end of the quarter, 82 percent of which is owned by the company's U.S. entities, even after reducing debt by $500 million. Inventory days were 105, up from 101 a year ago, and consistent with our model of 105-115.

  • Analog and Embedded Processing now account for 78 percent of total revenue.
