Intel reports record second quarter earnings of $14.8 billion in revenues, and adjusts its total year earnings to reflect strong segment growth.
Intel today reported its fiscal Q2'17 earnings of $14.8 billion, up 14% year-over-year with impressive growth in client computing, which was up 12%, and an increase of 16% in data-centric businesses like its Data Center, Internet of Things, and Programmable Solutions Groups. The Santa Clara-based tech titan reported operating income of $3.8 billion, representing a massive 190% jump year-over-year. Earnings per share (EPS) was $0.58 during the three-month quarter, up a mighty 115% YoY.
Intel generated $4.7 billion in operational cash flow during the quarter, and as a result of two strong quarters of revenue growth, the company has adjusted its full-year outlook by $1.3 billion to $61.3 billion, and raised its EPIS outlook to $2.66, up 15 cents over previous forecasts.
"Q2 was an outstanding quarter with revenue and profits growing double digits over last year," said Brian Krzanich, Intel CEO. "We also launched new Intel Core, Xeon and memory products that reset the bar for performance leadership, and we're gaining customer momentum in areas like AI and autonomous driving. With industry-leading products and strong first-half results, we're on a clear path to another record year."
"We feel great about where we are relative to our three year plan and heading into the second half. Intel's transformation continues in the third quarter when we expect to complete our planned acquisition of Mobileye," said Bob Swan, Intel CFO. "Based on our strong first-half results and higher expectations for the PC business, we're raising our full-year revenue and EPS forecast."
