The company reports revenues from external customers by country based on the location to which the products or services are delivered, which for QCT is generally the country in which the clients manufacture their products, or for licensing revenues, the invoiced addresses of the licensees. As a result, the revenues by country presented herein are not necessarily indicative of either the country in which the devices containing the company’s products and/or intellectual property are finally sold to consumers or the location in which the companies selling the devices are headquartered. For example, China revenues could include revenues related to shipments of integrated circuits for a company headquartered in South Korea but manufacturing devices in China, which are then sold to consumers in Europe and/or the United States.
The sales are influenced by lower modem sales to Apple and declining demand from OEMs in China. Also, for some products such as the QCT segment, sales are strongly influenced by seasonal fluctuations and launch timings of Apple’s products.
