April 20, 2016


ARM's 1Q 2016 earnings statement: Financial Summary

  • Group revenues in US$ up 14% year-on-year (£ revenues up 22% year-on-year)
  • Processor royalty revenues in US$ up 15% year-on-year, outperforming the industry by 18 percentage points
  • Normalised operating expenses were impacted by weaker sterling; at constant exchange rate normalised operating expenses were 2% higher than Q4 2015, and around the top end of the guidance range
  • Normalised PBT and EPS up 14% and 15% year-on-year respectively

"At the start of 2016, ARM has seen its current technology gaining share in target end-markets, and strong demand for our next generation of products from a wide range of companies. The licensing pipeline for the rest of the year is robust, with leading companies looking to license ARM technology for their next generation products. We expect that ARMv8-A technology will continue to penetrate in mobile and enterprise markets, and the higher royalty rate earned on these products will underpin future royalty revenues."
