 09.12.2012   AMD riduce i volumi di wafer acquistati dal maker Globalfoundries
 

Con il comunicato stampa che vi proponiamo di seguito in lingua originale, AMD ha reso noto di aver rivisitato l'accordo che la lega a Globalfoundries dal punto di vista della fornitura di wafer, tecnicamente indicato con la terminologia di Wafer Supply Agreement (WSA).

I due partner hanno rinegoziato i termini della collaborazione in virtù di un nuovo modello operativo di AMD, mediante il quale il chip designer punta ad "adeguare la propria offerta a quelle che sono le nuove dinamiche del mercato di PC".

In base al nuovo agreement, AMD ha ridotto in maniera a dir poco significativa il volume di wafer che acquisterà da Globalfoundries sia nell'ultimo trimestre dell'anno fiscale 2012, alla fine del quale gli investimenti ammonteranno a circa 115 milioni di dollari, che nel 2013, periodo nel quale AMD stima di acquistare wafer da Globalfoundries per un totale di 1.15 miliardi di dollari.

AMD, infine, si è impegnata ad acquistare 250 milioni di dollari di wafer da Globalfoundries nel primo trimestre del 2014, mentre per i trimestri rimanenti l'accordo sarà rivisto nel corso del prossimo 2013.



AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced that it successfully amended its Wafer Supply Agreement (WSA) with GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc.

The closure of amendment negotiations solidifies AMD’s new operating model as communicated at the third quarter 2012 earnings announcement.

To better align with today’s PC market dynamics, AMD and GLOBALFOUNDRIES agreed on purchase commitments for fourth quarter 2012 and established fixed pricing and other terms of the WSA which apply to products AMD will purchase from GLOBALFOUNDRIES through Dec. 31, 2013.

"Today's announcement demonstrates that the long-term strategic partnership between AMD and GLOBALFOUNDRIES continues to benefit both companies," said Rory Read, president and chief executive officer, AMD. "GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ performance in meeting our delivery requirements in 2012 was strong and they remain a strategic and important foundry partner moving forward. We are committed to develop and grow our business with GLOBALFOUNDRIES, increasing our engagement across our industry leading APU and graphics roadmaps. The newly amended agreement is another step we are taking to further strengthen our relationship with GLOBALFOUNDRIES as well as AMD's financial foundation."

Announcement details:

  • AMD lowered its wafer purchase commitments for the fourth quarter 2012.
  • AMD currently estimates that it will purchase wafers from GLOBALFOUNDRIES for approximately $115 million in the fourth quarter 2012 and $1.15 billion in fiscal 2013. AMD has also committed to purchase wafers from GLOBALFOUNDRIES for approximately $250 million during first quarter 2014.
  • AMD expects to negotiate the remainder of its 2014 purchase commitments from GLOBALFOUNDRIES in 2013.
  • AMD will make a termination payment of $320 million related to the take-or-pay agreement with GLOBALFOUNDRIES associated with the adjusted wafer purchase commitments in fourth quarter 2012.
The cash impact of the termination fee will spread over several quarters:
  • $80 million by Dec. 28, 2012;
  • $40 million by Apr. 1, 2013; and
  • A $200 million promissory note issued by AMD to GLOBALFOUNDRIES due on Dec. 31, 2013.
The termination fee will result in a net one-time charge of approximately $165 million recorded in the fourth quarter 2012.

Separately, as AMD moves to standard 28nm process technology, AMD will reduce future reimbursements to GLOBALFOUNDRIES for certain research and development costs.

As a result of the amendment, AMD expects to return to free cash flow generation in the second half of 2013.
