    Actually, they sold 1.9 billion chips. Read it again.

    They spent £64.4 million and profitted £55.8 million. They also received £37.8 million on licensing, so subract that from their profit (since it involves no chip manufacturing) and you get £18 million in chip profit. That mean their cost per chip was £0.0339 and and they sold them for £0.0434 making a profit of £0.0095 on each chip.
