Texas Instruments, the beleaguered Dallas-based maker of semiconductors and electronic equipment, posted a fourth-quarter loss of $41.2 million--its third consecutive quarterly loss--and a year-end loss of $118.7 million.
The quarterly loss, on revenue that was down 20% to $1.2 billion, compares to a profit of $64.6 million in the year-ago quarter.
Revenue for the entire year dropped 14% to $4.9 billion. The annual loss compares to a profit in 1984 of $316 million.
The company attributed the losses to the downturn in orders for semiconductors and slower sales of computers.
