MagnaChip Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Share:

- Revenue Increased 9.5% Sequentially and 10.7% Year-Over-Year Driven By Solid Foundry Revenue Growth

- Gross Margin of 34.5% Expanded 350 Basis Points Sequentially and 450 Basis Points Year-Over-Year

- Achieved GAAP EPS of $1.30 Per Diluted Share and Adjusted EPS of $0.81 Per Diluted Share

SEOUL, South Korea and CUPERTINO, Calif., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation ("MagnaChip") (NYSE: MX), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120305/NY61184LOGO )

Revenue for the third quarter of 2012 was $221.9 million, a 9.5% increase compared to $202.6 million for the second quarter of 2012, and a 10.7% increase compared to $200.4 million for the third quarter of 2011.

Gross margin was $76.4 million or 34.5%, as a percent of revenue, for the third quarter of 2012. This compares to gross margin of $62.9 million or 31.0% for the second quarter of 2012 and $60.1 million or 30.0% for the third quarter of 2011.

Net income, on a GAAP basis, for the third quarter of 2012 totaled $48.4 million or $1.30 per diluted share. This compares to net income of $4.3 million or $0.12 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012 and net loss of $56.0 million or $1.43 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2011. Net income was impacted primarily by a foreign currency gain of $21.8 million during the quarter which was primarily related to non-cash foreign currency translation for intercompany balances that were denominated in U.S. dollars.

"Our sequential revenue growth of nearly 10% put us at the high end of the semiconductor group in terms of top line performance with smartphone and tablet PC demand remaining strong going into the fourth quarter. This smartphone and tablet PC demand is well diversified with MagnaChip supplying about 50 unique products to 26 different customers," said Sang Park, MagnaChip Chairman and CEO. "In addition to strong revenue growth, our Q3 gross margin was up 350 basis points sequentially and up 630 basis points since Q1 due to higher fab utilization and improved product mix shift."

Adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measurement, for the third quarter of 2012 totaled $30.4 million or $0.81 per diluted share compared to $17.9 million or $0.48 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012 and $18.2 million or $0.46 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2011.

Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed in conjunction with GAAP results, can provide a more meaningful understanding of the factors and trends affecting MagnaChip's business and operations. However, such non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should not be considered as a substitute for net income or as a better indicator of our operating performance than measures that are presented in accordance with GAAP.

Combined cash balances (cash and cash equivalents plus restricted cash) totaled $165.8 million at the end of the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $4.8 million from the end of the prior quarter. Cash provided from operations totaled approximately $23.0 million for the third quarter of 2012.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted to exclude (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) interest expense, net, (iii) income tax expense, (iv) restructuring and impairment charges, (v) stock-based compensation expense, (vi) foreign currency loss (gain), net, (vii) derivative valuation loss (gain), net, (viii) secondary offering and others, and (ix) loss on early extinguishment of senior notes.

We present Adjusted Net Income as a further supplemental measure of our performance. We prepare Adjusted Net Income by adjusting net income to eliminate the impact of a number of non-cash expenses and other items that may be either one time or recurring that we do not consider to be indicative of our core ongoing operating performance. We believe that Adjusted Net Income is particularly useful because it reflects the impact of our asset base and capital structure on our operating performance. We define Adjusted Net Income as net income adjusted to exclude (i) restructuring and impairment charges (ii) stock-based compensation expense, (iii) amortization of intangibles, (iv) foreign currency loss (gain), net, (v) derivative valuation loss (gain), net, (vi) secondary offering and others, and (vii) loss on early extinguishment of senior notes.
