Aug 02, 2012, 16:00 ET from MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation

SEOUL, South Korea and CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 2, 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 second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

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

Revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $202.6 million, a 14.5% increase compared to $177.0 million for the first quarter of 2012, and a 0.5% decrease compared to $203.7 million for the second quarter of 2011.

Gross margin was $62.9 million or 31.0%, as a percent of revenue, for the second quarter of 2012. This compares to gross margin of $49.9 million or 28.2% for the first quarter of 2012 and $66.2 million or 32.5% for the second quarter of 2011.

"I am very pleased that the second quarter represented our sixth consecutive quarter of meeting revenue and gross margin guidance in what is being described as a challenging macro environment. Our foundry services and power solutions segments saw greater than anticipated order strength and revenue growth during the quarter," said Sang Park, MagnaChip Chairman and CEO. "This is possible because of our alignment with strategic customers in high growth markets - including the leading smart phone and tablet PC makers.  During the last three years, we have made solid progress shifting our customer base and refocusing our product portfolio. Our direct and indirect revenue from the top two smart phone/tablet PC makers has almost tripled in the first half of this year compared to the first half of 2010."

Net income, on a GAAP basis, for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $4.3 million or $0.12 per diluted share. This compares to net income of $15.3 million or $0.40 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2012 and net income of $31.6 million or $0.78 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2011. Net income was impacted primarily by a foreign currency loss of $10.6 million during the quarter which was primarily related to non-cash translation losses for intercompany balances that were denominated in U.S. dollars.

Adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measurement, for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $17.9 million or $0.48 per diluted share compared to $6.5 million or $0.17 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2012 and $22.5 million or $0.56 per diluted share for the second 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 $161.0 million at the end of the second quarter of 2012, an increase of $0.4 million from the end of the prior quarter. Cash provided from operations totaled approximately $26.7 million for the second 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 gain, net, (viii) secondary offering expense, 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 gain, net, (vi) secondary offering expense, and (vii) loss on early extinguishment of senior notes.
