motorola's first quarter and full year earnings outlook

schaumburg, ill., jan. 23 /prnewswire-firstcall/ -- motorola, inc. (nyse: mot) said today it expects sales in the first quarter of 2002 to be between $6.0 billion and $6.2 billion. the company expects to incur a loss, excluding special items, of between (11) cents and (14) cents per share in the first quarter.

the company continues to expect sales from ongoing operations for the full-year 2002 to decline between 5 percent and 10 percent compared to 2001. the company confirmed that it continues to expect to return to profitability in the third quarter of 2002 and be profitable for the full year 2002.
motorola also said that it believes the current 2002 consensus earnings expectation of 4 cents per share for the full year, excluding special items, is not only achievable, but can be exceeded. the company believes that, if annual sales are near the high end of the company's guidance range and the wireless handset and semiconductor industries meet growth expectations, it is possible for the company to earn 15 cents per share in 2002, excluding special items, as the company previously discussed. the gross margin improvements anticipated in these two businesses if their industries meet growth expectations, coupled with the expected savings from cost reductions, would make this level of earnings possible.
