Good morning and welcome to Texas Instruments 2024 Capital Management Call. I'm Dave Pahl, Head of Investor Relations, and I'm joined by our Chief Financial Officer, Rafael Lazzardi. This call is being broadcast live over the web and can be accessed through our website at ti.com.

In addition, today's call is being recorded and will be available via replay on our website, along with the complete presentation and prepared remarks for your convenience. This call will include forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause TI's results to differ materially from management's current expectations. We encourage you to review the notice regarding forward-looking statements contained in our most recent earnings release, as well as the most recent SEC filings for a more complete description.

During today's presentation, we'll begin with a recap of our objective, strategy, and business model that is built on our sustainable competitive advantages. Next, we'll review the scorecard for 2023 and updates for 2024. Then we'll provide a historical summary of our capital allocation and share a reminder of our approach to capital allocation as we prepare for the opportunity ahead.

Next, we'll provide an update on our progress in strengthening our manufacturing and technology competitive advantage, where you'll see our CapEx plans are unchanged as we prepare to support long-term growth for our customers with geopolitically dependable capacity. Then we'll review R&D allocation priorities and our progress on building closer, direct relationships with our customers. Next, we'll review our free cash flow per share performance. And lastly, we'll wrap up with a review of our cash returns.

If you haven't already, we encourage you to review our investor overview, which provides insight into our business model and competitive advantages. It's also available on our investor relations website at ti.com/ir. Before I go through an executive summary of TI's guiding principles and our objective and strategy, let me pause and make a few important points about today's presentation.

Companies and investors are looking at a world where the semiconductor cycle is playing out at the same time that geopolitical tensions, particularly between China and the U.S., are reshaping supply chains and competitive dynamics for the next 10 to 20 years. We will continue to allocate capital to the best opportunities to prepare for the future, particularly our investments to provide geopolitically dependable, low-cost, 300-millimeter capacity at scale.

History has shown the importance of staying focused on the opportunity ahead, even through weak periods of the semiconductor cycle. It is precisely in times like this that we find it important to remind ourselves and our investors of the principles that guide us on a day-to-day basis. At TI, we run the company with the mindset of being a long-term owner. We believe that the growth of free cash flow per share is the primary driver of long-term value.

Our ambitions and values are integral to how we build TI stronger. When we're successful in achieving these ambitions, our employees, our customers, communities, and shareholders all win. Our strategy is comprised of a great business model, a disciplined approach to capital allocation, and a focus on efficiency. Our business model is built around four sustainable competitive advantages; manufacturing and technology, broad product portfolio, the reach of our market channels, and diverse and long-lived positions.

And after increative investments in the business to grow free cash flow per share for the long term, the remaining cash will be returned over time via dividends and share repurchases. With that as a framework, our objective is to maximize long-term growth of free cash flow per share, which we believe is the best metric to judge our performance and generates long-term value for the owners of the company.

Our strategy to achieve this objective has three elements. First, a business model that is focused on analog and embedded products and built around four sustainable competitive advantages, advantages that we continue to invest in and make even stronger. Second, discipline and allocating capital to the best opportunities, this spans how we select R&D projects, develop new capabilities like ti.com, invest in our new manufacturing capacity, or how we think about acquisitions and returning cash to our owners. And third, striving to constantly increase our efficiency, which is about achieving more output for every dollar of input.

Our strategy is designed around four sustainable competitive advantages that, in combination, provide tangible benefits that are difficult to replicate. First, at the bottom of the slide, we start with a foundation of manufacturing and technology. This provides us lower cost and greater control of our supply chain. The advantage of lower cost has always been recognized as a benefit. The last few years have increasingly highlighted the importance of owning and controlling our supply chain, including manufacturing, process technology, and packaging.

Our second competitive advantage is the broad product portfolio of analog and embedded processing products. These products provide us more opportunities per customer and more value for our investments. And third, the reach of our market channels, including our field sales force team and ti.com. This provides us access to more customers, projects, sockets per project, and insight into their needs. And lastly, we have diverse and long-lived positions, resulting in less single point dependency and longer returns on our investments.

如果您还没有的话,我们鼓励您查看我们的投资者概览,这将对我们的商业模式和竞争优势提供见解。您也可以在我们的投资者关系网站 ti.com/ir 上找到这份概览。在我浏览TI公司的指导原则、我们的目标和策略概要之前,让我暂停一下,重点谈一下今天演示的一些重要内容。





我们实现这一目标的战略有三个要素。首先,一个着眼于模拟和嵌入式产品的商业模式,建立在四个可持续的竞争优势基础上,我们将不断投资并加强这些优势。其次,我们要有资本分配的纪律,把资金用于最佳机会,无论是在选择研发项目、开发诸如 ti.com 这样的新能力、投资新的生产能力,或者考虑收购并向股东返还现金等方面。第三,不断提高效率,这意味着要在每投入一美元的情况下获得更多产出。


我们的第二个竞争优势是广泛的模拟和嵌入式处理产品组合。这些产品为我们提供更多的客户机会和更大的投资价值。第三,我们的市场渠道覆盖范围广,包括我们的外部销售团队和 ti.com。这为我们提供了更多的客户、项目、每个项目套接字以及对他们需求的洞察。最后,我们拥有多样化和长期存在的地位,减少了单一依赖点,并延长了我们的投资回报周期。
