Intel (INTC) reported its Q2 earnings after the bell on Thursday that beat analysts’ expectations on the top and bottom line. Here are the important numbers from the report:

  • Revenue: $16.5 billion versus $15.67 billion expected

  • Adjusted earnings per share: $1.06 versus $0.89 expected

The is the first quarterly report since CEO Bob Swan slashed Intel's quarterly and full-year guidance in Q1.

The report also comes after Swan revealed that Intel is offloading its mobile modem division. In an interview with Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Andy Serwer, Swan explained that the company didn't see a way to profitability for the business.

Intel confirmed that it’s selling the division to Apple (AAPL) for as much as $1 billion. The move will bring modem development in-house at Apple, something the company has been focusing more on for its smartphone division.
