U.S. GAAP Financial Results

For the September 2023 quarter, revenue was $3,482 million, gross margin was $1,655 million, or 47.5% of revenue, operating expenses were $632 million, operating income was 29.4% of revenue, and net income was $887 million, or $6.66 per diluted share on a U.S. GAAP basis. This compares to revenue of $3,207 million, gross margin of $1,458 million, or 45.5% of revenue, operating expenses of $604 million, operating income of 26.6% of revenue, and net income of $803 million, or $5.97 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 25, 2023 (the "June 2023 quarter").

Non-GAAP Financial Results

For the September 2023 quarter, non-GAAP gross margin was $1,669 million, or 47.9% of revenue, non-GAAP operating expenses were $622 million, non-GAAP operating income was 30.1% of revenue, and non-GAAP net income was $912 million, or $6.85 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP gross margin of $1,465 million, or 45.7% of revenue, non-GAAP operating expenses of $590 million, non-GAAP operating income of 27.3% of revenue, and non-GAAP net income of $803 million, or $5.98 per diluted share, for the June 2023 quarter.

"Lam continues to deliver strong results despite a cyclically soft year for wafer fabrication equipment spending," said Tim Archer, Lam Research's President and Chief Executive Officer. "There are tremendous growth vectors ahead for Lam, and we are investing strategically to drive long-term outperformance."

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Results

Cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments, and restricted cash and investments balances decreased to $5.2 billion at the end of the September 2023 quarter compared to $5.6 billion at the end of the June 2023 quarter. The decrease was primarily the result of $843 million of share repurchases, including net share settlement of employee stock-based compensation; $253 million of repayment of debt, largely associated with the purchase of certain properties under finance leases; and $230 million of dividends paid to stockholders, partially offset by $951 million of cash generated from operating activities.

Deferred revenue at the end of the September 2023 quarter decreased to $1,690 million compared to $1,838 million as of the end of the June 2023 quarter. Lam's deferred revenue balance does not include shipments to customers in Japan, to whom title does not transfer until customer acceptance. Shipments to customers in Japan are classified as inventory at cost until the time of acceptance. The estimated future revenue from shipments to customers in Japan was approximately $261 million as of September 24, 2023 and $160 million as of June 25, 2023.

The information provided above is only an estimate of what the Company believes is realizable as of the date of this release and does not incorporate the potential impact of any business combinations, asset acquisitions, divestitures, restructuring, balance sheet valuation adjustments, financing arrangements, other investments, or other significant arrangements that may be completed or realized after the date of this release, except as described below. U.S. GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items provided include only those items that are known and can be estimated as of the date of this release. Actual results will vary from this model and the variations may be material. Reconciling items included above are as follows:

  • Gross margin as a percentage of revenue - restructuring charges, $7 million; transformational costs, $7 million; and amortization related to intangible assets acquired through business combinations, $3 million; totaling $17 million.
  • Operating income as a percentage of revenue - transformational costs, $22 million; restructuring charges, $7 million; and amortization related to intangible assets acquired through business combinations, $3 million; totaling $32 million.
  • Net income per diluted share - transformational costs, $22 million; restructuring charges, $7 million; amortization related to intangible assets acquired though business combinations, $3 million; amortization of debt discounts, $1 million; and associated tax benefit for non-GAAP items ($4 million); totaling $29 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Results

In addition to U.S. GAAP results, this press release also contains non-GAAP financial results. The Company's non-GAAP results for both the September 2023 and June 2023 quarters exclude amortization related to intangible assets acquired through business combinations, the effects of elective deferred compensation-related assets and liabilities, amortization of note discounts, net restructuring charges, and transformational costs, and the net income tax effect of non-GAAP items. Additionally, the non-GAAP results for the June 2023 quarter exclude the income tax benefit on conclusion of certain tax matters related to a prior business combination and product rationalization charges.

Management uses non-GAAP gross margin, operating expense, operating income, operating income as a percentage of revenue, net income, and net income per diluted share to evaluate the Company's operating and financial results. The Company believes the presentation of non-GAAP results is useful to investors for analyzing business trends and comparing performance to prior periods, along with enhancing investors' ability to view the Company's results from management's perspective. Tables presenting reconciliations of non-GAAP results to U.S. GAAP results are included at the end of this press release and on the Company's website at https://investor.lamresearch.com.
