Arm Announces Record Revenues

Posted on May 13, 2022 by Paul Thurrott in Hardware, Mobile with 1 Comment

Arm announced its latest annual earnings, and not surprisingly it recorded profits and revenues in the past year. Total 2021 revenues were $2.7 billion, up 35 percent year-over-year, Arm said, while a record 29.2 billion chips based on its designs shipped in the year, including 8 billion in Q4 alone.

“Our record results demonstrate that the demand for Arm technology and the strength of the Arm ecosystem has never been greater,” Arm CEO Rene Haas said. “Our compute platform will power the next set of technology revolutions across cloud computing, automotive and autonomous systems, the IoT, the Metaverse and beyond. As we look ahead to a future built on Arm, our priority is to continue to deliver on our business strategy, enable partners with the solutions they need through further investment in our roadmaps and engineering talent, and together with our ecosystem redefine the future of computing.”

A record $1.54 billion of Arm’s revenues were from royalty payments from licensees, and that figure was up 20 percent YOY. Arm earned another $1.13 billion from non-royalty licensing; that figure was 61 percent, and Arm credited the gains to its “expanded product portfolio and new business models such as Arm Flexible Access [that] gave more customers more reasons and more ways to license Arm technology.”

Arm’s designs have powered over 225 billion chips in total, the firm reported, giving it “the world’s largest computing footprint and a unique understanding of the complete compute spectrum.”

    "revenues were $2.7 billion" "29.2 billion chips... shipped"


    So on average they're making less than 10¢/chip, interesting.
