“Our teams delivered solid third-quarter results that exceeded our expectations despite pandemic-related impacts in significant portions of the business,” Intel CEO Bob Swan said in a statement.

Intel said it is expecting five percent top-line growth year-over-year in 2020 with full-year revenue of $75.3 billion.

“Nine months into 2020, we’re forecasting growth and another record year, even as we manage through massive demand shifts and economic uncertainty,” the Intel CEO said.

In the third quarter, the company generated $8.2 billion in cash from operations and paid dividends of $1.4 billion.

Third-quarter revenue was ahead of prior expectations driven by continued strength in notebook sales, which helped offset Covid-driven headwinds affecting significant portions of its business.
