“Revenue was flat sequentially and decreased 14% from the same quarter a year ago,” Texas Instruments’ CEO Haviv Ilan said in a statement. “During the quarter, automotive growth continued and industrial weakness broadened.”

During a conference call to discuss results, Dave Paul, Texas Instruments’ vice president and head of investor relations, said that the industrial market was down mid-single digits sequentially, with weakness broadening across nearly all sectors. “The automotive market continued to grow, and was up mid-single digits,” he added. “Personal electronics was up about 20% off a low base … communications equipment was down upper teens and, finally, enterprise systems grew upper single digits.”

For the fourth quarter, Texas Instruments said it expects revenue between $3.93 billion and $4.27 billion and earnings between $1.35 and $1.57 a share. Analysts surveyed by FactSet said they are looking for revenue of $4.502 billion and adjusted earnings of $1.79 a share.
