U mean all divisions of Philips renamed to NXP or just ARM processor division of Philips ?

Just semiconsductors.

Looks to me like Philips, the company, is completely out of the
picture now.

Not quite!

NXP is privately owned but Philips retains about 19.9% of the stock.
Also NXP is still using "Founded by Philips" slogan, but it is
getting smaller and smaller as time goes just like the NXP value.

Yes, Philips spun off their semiconductor division.
(but not completely: they kept a 20% stake: that's probably why NXP still
proudly has in all its literature: "Founded by Philips")
Quite a popular thing to do, by the way.
LOTS of companies have spun off their semiconductor divisions:

Harris -> Intersil
Motorola -> Freescale
Rockwell International -> Conexant
Agilent -> Avago
Siemens -> Infineon
Lucent -> Agere
