AMD hosted their quarterly earnings conference call this afternoon to announce their financial results for the quarter ending March 2014. While they still reported a GAAP loss of $20 Million ($0.03 per share), year over year results showed a strong revenue gain of 28% and a substantial 86% increase in net income (though still a small loss). AMD Q1 2014 Financial Results (GAAP) Q1'2014 Q4'2013 Q1'2013 Revenue $1.40B $1.59B $1.09B Net Income -$20M $89M -$146M Gross margins were 35% for the quarter which was flat compared to Q4 2013. These margins are in-line with AMD’s stated goals, and while they’d no doubt appreciate greater margins right now, the long term plan is to be profitable with these margins. Non-GAAP numbers were slightly higher, with a small profit of $12M, or $0.02 per share. AMD Q1 2014 Financial Results...
