Intel Corporation INTC reported mixed third-quarter 2022 results, wherein the bottom line beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate while the top line missed. Both revenues and earnings declined year over year owing to a challenging macroeconomic environment and softening demand trends.\nQuarter Details\nThe company reported a GAAP net income of $1,019 million or 25 cents per share in the third quarter compared with $6,823 million or $1.67 per share in the year-ago quarter. The significant decline was due to a sudden and rapid fall in economic activity and a slowdown in demand that resulted in top-line contraction. Non-GAAP earnings in the reported quarter were $2,432 million or 59 cents per share compared with $5,908 million or $1.45 per share a year ago. The bottom line beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 25 cents.\nGAAP revenues were $15,338 million, down 20.1% year over year, owing to softness in the end consumer and educational market demand. In response to supply chain issues, the company is closely collaborating with customers and suppliers to effectively address their most critical needs. The top line missed the consensus estimate of $15,491 million.\nSegment Performance\nIntel has reorganized its business segments to better reflect the growth in both large traditional markets and high-growth emerging markets for increased transparency, focus and accountability.\nClient Computing Group (CCG, 52.5% of total operating segment revenues) revenues were down 17% year over year to $8,124 million. This was largely due to global TAM weakness, particularly in consumer, education and small\/medium business markets.\nDatacenter and AI Group (DCAI, 27.2%) revenues fell 27.1% year over year to $4,209 million. This was due to OEM inventory reductions and competitive pressures. The company has a singular focus on regaining performance and TCO leadership across all workloads and use cases from enterprise to cloud.\nNetwork and Edge Group (NEX, 14.6%) revenues improved 14.1% to $2,333 million. This was due to the strength and data center networking products, specifically networking Ethernet and 5G.\nRevenues from Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group (AXG, 1.2%) were up 8.2% to $185 million. This was due to the ramp-up of Blockscale products. Mobileye (2.9%) revenues were up 38% to $450 million, primarily driven by higher demand for EyeQ products. Intel Foundry Services (IFS, 1.1%) revenues were $171 million, down 1.7%.\nOther Operating Details\nNon-GAAP gross margin was 45.9%, down 1240 basis points (bps) on a year-over-year basis. Non-GAAP operating margin contracted 2,100 bps to 10.8%.\nCCG's operating income was down 53.9% year over year to $1,655 million and DCAI's operating income fell 99.2% to $ 17 million.

The company generated $7,730 million of cash from operations in the first nine months of 2022 compared with $24,053 million in the prior-year period.\nOutlook\nFor the fourth quarter of 2022, Intel expects non-GAAP revenues to be $14-$15 billion. Non-GAAP gross margin is likely to be 45%. Non-GAAP earnings are expected to be around 20 cents per share.\nFor 2022, the company expects non-GAAP revenues to be $63-$64 billion, down from prior expectations of $65-$68 billion owing to challenging macroeconomic conditions with a high degree of uncertainty.
