DALLAS, April 22, 2013

DALLAS, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI)
(NASDAQ: TXN) today announced first-quarter revenue of $2.89 billion, net
income of $362 million and earnings per share of 32 cents.

Regarding the company's performance and returns to shareholders, Rich
Templeton, TI's chairman, president and CEO, made the following comments:

  o"Our revenue and earnings ended the quarter at the high end of our
    expected range. Customers continued to operate in a real-time mode,
    maintaining minimal component inventory and ordering parts as they were
    needed. Our short product lead times, well-positioned inventory and ready
    manufacturing capacity allow us to respond rapidly to changes in demand.

  o"TI is now firmly rooted in Analog and Embedded Processing, and in the
    first quarter these segments contributed 77 percent of our revenue – a
    full five points more than a year ago.

  o"Our business model generates strong cash flow from operations. Free cash
    flow* for the trailing 12 months was almost $3 billion, up 16 percent
    compared with a year ago. Further, free cash flow comprised 23 percent of
    revenue, which is consistent with our target of 20-25 percent. Free cash
    flow is well in excess of net income, and we expect it to remain so for
    some time as non-cash expenses are included in net income.

  o"In the quarter, we announced a 33 percent increase in our dividend to
    $1.12 per share annualized, and we added another $5 billion to our stock
    repurchase authorization. Both increases reflect our confidence in the
    long-term sustainability of our Analog and Embedded Processing business

  o"We returned $911 million to shareholders through dividends and share
    repurchases in the first quarter. For the trailing 12 months, the return
    to shareholders totaled $3 billion, or 107 percent of free cash flow,
    consistent with our intention to return all our free cash flow to
    shareholders except what is needed to repay debt.

  o"Our balance sheet remains strong, with $3.9 billion of cash and
    short-term investments on hand at the end of the quarter, 84 percent of
    which is owned by the company's U.S. entities. Inventory was 101 days,
    down from 105 a year ago."

1Q13 segment results

Beginning with this financial report, TI has transitioned its segment
reporting to align with the company's strategic focus and new organizational
structure. The Wireless segment has been eliminated, as the company has
announced that it is winding down investment in Wireless products for the
smartphone and consumer tablet markets. Financial results for these legacy
wireless products are included in the Other segment. Financial results for
Wireless products that address embedded applications, a strategic focus for
the company, are reported in the Embedded Processing segment. In addition,
some products, mostly RFID products used in automotive applications, were
moved from the Other segment into Embedded Processing. Historical information
for the new segment structure is available at ti.com/ir.

Analog: (includes High Volume Analog & Logic, Power Management, High
Performance Analog and Silicon Valley Analog)

  oCompared with a year ago, revenue decreased due to lower Silicon Valley
    Analog revenue. High Volume Analog & Logic revenue and High Performance
    Analog revenue also declined while revenue from Power Management
  oCompared with the prior quarter, revenue was about even as lower revenue
    from High Volume Analog & Logic and Power Management was offset by higher
    revenue from Silicon Valley Analog and High Performance Analog.
  oOperating profit decreased from a year ago primarily due to lower revenue
    and associated gross profit. Operating profit declined from the prior
    quarter primarily due to higher operating expenses.

Embedded Processing: (includes Processors, Microcontrollers and Connectivity)

  oCompared with the year-ago quarter, the increase in revenue was primarily
    due to higher Microcontroller revenue. Revenue from Connectivity also
    increased, while Processor revenue was about even.
  oCompared with the prior quarter, revenue increased due to
    Microcontrollers. Processor revenue declined while Connectivity revenue
    was about even.
  oOperating profit declined from a year ago primarily due to lower gross
    profit. Operating profit decreased from the prior quarter due to higher
    operating expenses.

Other: (includes DLP^® products, custom ASIC products, calculators, royalties
and legacy wireless products)

  oCompared with the year-ago quarter, revenue declined primarily due to
    lower revenue from legacy wireless products. The year-ago quarter also
    included proceeds that did not recur from business interruption insurance
    associated with the Japan earthquake. Revenue from custom ASIC products
    and calculators also declined. Revenue from DLP products and royalties
  oCompared with the prior quarter, revenue declined primarily due to lower
    revenue from legacy wireless products. Revenue from custom ASIC products
    and royalties also declined. Revenue from calculators increased and from
    DLP products was about even.
  oOperating profit increased from a year ago primarily due to lower
    operating expenses. Operating profit increased from the prior quarter due
    to lower restructuring charges.

Non-GAAP financial information

This earnings release includes references to free cash flow and various ratios
based on that measure. These are financial measures that were not prepared in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States
(non-GAAP measures). Free cash flow was calculated by subtracting Capital
expenditures from the most directly comparable GAAP measure of Cash flows from
operating activities (also referred to as Cash flow from operations).

The free cash flow measures were compared to the following GAAP items to
determine the various non-GAAP ratios presented below and referred to in the
release: Revenue, Dividends paid and Stock repurchases. Reconciliation to
the most directly comparable GAAP-based ratios is provided in the table below.

The company believes all of these non-GAAP measures provide insight into its
liquidity, its cash-generating capability and the amount of cash available to
return to investors as well as insight into its financial performance. These
non-GAAP measures are supplemental to the comparable GAAP measures.
