  • Net profit for the period attributable to SMIC was $82.6 million in 3Q15, as compared to $76.7 million in 2Q15 and $47.5 million in 3Q14. Excluding the gain of commitment to grant shares and warrants in 2Q10, profit for the period attributable to SMIC was a record high in 3Q15.

Fourth Quarter 2015 Guidance: 

The following statements are forward looking statements which are based on current expectations and which involve risks and uncertainties, some of which are set forth under "Safe Harbor Statements" below. The Company expects:

  • Revenue to increase by 3% to 6% quarter over quarter.
  • Gross margin to range from 28% to 30%.
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses excluding the effect of employee bonus accrual, government funding and gain from the disposal of living quarters to range from $142 million to $147 million.
  • Non-controlling interests of our majority-owned subsidiaries to range from positive $33 million to positive $36 million (losses to be borne by non-controlling interests).

Dr. Tzu-Yin Chiu, SMIC's Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director, commented, "SMIC has achieved another quarter of record-high revenue and earnings in Q3; undeterred by the industry correction, our utilizations remain high as we guide an additional growth quarter in Q4. We have successfully diversified our products as well as our customer base and have shown resilience in the face of seasonally weaker market trends.

We have started to book small 28nm revenue contributions in Q3 this year. We continue to expand our differentiated portfolio; and I am pleased to announce our 95ULL SPOCULL technology (SMIC Poly Contact for Ultra Low Leakage); when comparing to conventional 0.13LL technology this 8-inch SPOCULL technology can pack 2 times the logic density and three times the SRAM density. We believe this new technology will be very suitable for applications such as ultra-low power MCU, high performance analog, RF, and other IOT related applications.

I am also pleased to announce that we newly received an investment-grade credit rating from Moody's, in addition to an investment-grade credit rating from S&P. Domestically, we have received a triple A rating from a Chinese rating agency, China Chengxin International Credit Rating Co. These signify the recognition and acknowledgement of SMIC's credible and improving financial health.

We have achieved a strong 2015 so far, our best historically in terms of revenue, profitability and utilization. We expect growth again in the fourth quarter, which would represent 4 consecutive quarters of growth in 2015. With our Q4 guidance, our 2015 revenue is expected to grow more than 10% year over year."

Safe Harbor Statements (Under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995)

This press release contains, in addition to historical information, "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements, including statements under "Fourth Quarter 2015 Guidance", "CapEx Summary" and the statements contained in the quotes of our CEO regarding our fourth quarter guidance are based on SMIC's current assumptions, expectations and projections about future events. SMIC uses words like "believe," "anticipate," "intend," "estimate," "expect," "project," "target" and similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. These forward-looking statements involve significant risks, both known and unknown, uncertainties and other factors that may cause SMIC's actual performance, financial condition or results of operations to be materially different from those suggested by the forward-looking statements including, among others, risks associated with the cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry, changes in demand for our products, competition in our markets, our reliance on a small number of customers, orders or judgments from pending litigation, intensive intellectual property lawsuits in semiconductor industry and financial stability in end markets, general economic conditions and fluctuations in currency exchange rates.

Investors should consider the information contained in SMIC's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including its annual report on 20-F filed with the SEC on April 28, 2015, especially the consolidated financial statements, and such other documents that SMIC may file with the SEC or The Hong Kong Stock Exchange Limited ("SEHK") from time to time, including current reports on Form 6-K. Other unknown or unpredictable factors also could have material adverse effects on SMIC's future results, performance or achievements. In light of these risks, uncertainties, assumptions and factors, the forward-looking events discussed in this press release may not occur. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date stated, or if no date is stated, as of the date of this press release.

About Non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("Non-GAAP") Financial Measures

To supplement SMIC's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with IFRS, SMIC uses in this press release non-GAAP operating expenses which consist of total operating expenses as adjusted to exclude the effect of employee bonus accrual, government funding and gain from the disposal of living quarters. This earnings release also includes fourth quarter 2015 guidance for non-GAAP operating expenses. The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with IFRS.

SMIC believes that use of these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates investors' and management's comparisons to SMIC's historical performance. The Group's management regularly uses these non-GAAP financial measures to understand, manage and evaluate the Group's business and make financial and operational decisions.

The accompanying table has more information and reconciliations of each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis.

  • The change in foreign exchange gains or losses was mainly due to a devaluation of RMB against USD in 3Q15. Foreign monetary assets mainly consist of cash and cash equivalent and accounts receivables in RMB. And foreign monetary liabilities mainly consist of loans, accounts payables and other payables in RMB. The Group is in net foreign monetary asset position.
  • The change in other gains or losses, net was mainly caused by 1) the lower revenue from our schools in 3Q15 due to summer vacation and 2) the lower gains from investment in the financial products sold by banks in 3Q15.
  • The change in fair value change was due to gain arising from the put option, which was granted by Jiangsu Changjiang Electronics Technology Co., Ltd ("JCET"), to sell the shares of Suzhou Changjiang Electric Xinke Investment Co., Ltd ("Changjiang Xinke") to JCET, pursuant to an investment exit agreement entered into by SilTech Shanghai (a subsidiary of SMIC), JCET and Jiangsu Xinchao Technology Group Co., Ltd (a substantial shareholder of JCET).
  • The change in share of profit (loss) of investment using equity method was mainly due to the loss attributable to Changjiang Xinke.

Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to     Comparable GAAP Measures(1)

 Non-GAAP operating expenses

(121,365)

(110,901)

Note:

(1) Non-GAAP operating expenses are defined as operating expenses adjusted to exclude the effect of employee bonus accrual, government funding and gain from the disposal of living quarters. SMIC reviews non-GAAP operating expenses together with operating expenses to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make financial and operational decisions. The Group also believes it is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance. However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact our net profit for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider the non-GAAP operating expenses in isolation from or as an alternative to operating expenses prepared in accordance with IFRS.

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of the non-GAAP operating expenses to its most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with IFRS, for the periods indicated.
