TI Expects Third Quarter Revenue to be in Upper Half of Prior Outlook

9/11/2003 - In a scheduled update to its business outlook for the third quarter of 2003, Texas Instruments Incorporated (NYSE:TXN) narrowed its expected revenue range to the upper half of the company's prior outlook. TI's updated estimate reflects strengthening demand across a broad range of its Semiconductor products.

The company's expectations for revenue are:

TI expects earnings per share (EPS) between $0.20 and $0.22, including a $0.13 per share contribution from the company's previously announced sale of 24.7 million shares of Micron Technology, Inc. common stock, compared with the previous range of $0.19 to $0.23. The current EPS estimate also includes a non-tax-deductible in-process research and development (R&D) charge of about $23 million related to the company's acquisition of Radia Communications, Inc., which was completed on July 30. The in-process R&D charge was not included in the company's previous EPS estimate.
