Strategy overview: CEO perspective

Over the past few years, TI has undergone a strategic transformation and as a result, today is a company focused on Analog and Embedded Processing. These continue to be some of the best opportunities inside of the semiconductor market, offering compelling financial characteristics, growth, diversity and stability. They also offer some of the best exposure to the growing opportunities inside of the industrial and automotive markets.

TI Chairman, President and CEO Rich Templeton has been talking with investors and shareholders about our focus on Analog and Embedded Processing. Below are two events where he shared his perspective on the company, its strategy and goals.

  • At the May 2012 investor meeting, Templeton described our transformation into an Analog and Embedded Processing company. In addition, Templeton fielded questions from the investor audience along with Kevin March, TI's chief financial officer.

  • At the 2014 annual meeting of stockholders, Templeton discussed the progress made over the last year in creating a company grounded in Analog and Embedded Processing, one that was more diverse in its markets and customers, and provided superior returns to its shareholders. As part of the company’s approach to business, he described investing in the best opportunities, maximizing the growth of free cash flow and recognizing that free cash flow will only be valued if it is wisely invested or returned to shareholders for them to invest. Templeton also gave an update on the company’s capital management strategy.
