SEOUL, South Korea, November 15, 2022 – Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (“Magnachip”) (NYSE: MX) announced today that the company has launched its first Power Management Integrated Circuit (PMIC) for IT devices equipped with OLED screens.

 

Magnachip's First Power Management IC Optimized for OLED IT Devices
Magnachip’s First Power Management IC Optimized for OLED IT Devices

 

A PMIC is a core component to supply power to electronic devices. It plays an increasingly important role as the battery life of handheld IT devices like laptops and tablets is highly dependent on power efficiency.

Based on Magnachip’s integrated power IC technology, this newly-designed PMIC communicates with a system by using an Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C). Therefore, it can control functions such as output voltage control, ON/OFF block, output voltage sequence management, protection circuit fault flag, and switching frequency transition — all of which offer seamless connectivity and outstanding performance.

The fast transient response of this PMIC supports a variable refresh rate. This allows a screen to adjust how often it refreshes the image to match the frame rate without user input. This feature greatly reduces power consumption and enables a smooth and comfortable viewing experience for games and high-quality videos at refresh rates of 60Hz~240Hz.

In addition, the power circuit can be simple and compact. This new IC incorporates one boost regulator for the power supply to source and gate drivers, one low dropout (LDO) regulator, two voltage reference operational amplifiers, three negative output LDO regulators, three high-current buck regulators for power supply to a timing controller and two operational amplifiers for the gamma buffer. This level of integration results in smaller and faster electronic circuits. Engineered with strong circuit protection, this PMIC also provides over-voltage protection, short circuit protection, thermal shutdown, under voltage lockout, over current detection, over current shutdown and clamping circuit.

Omdia, a global market research firm, estimates that the OLED panel shipments for laptops will grow 44.3% annually from 6.3 million substrates in 2022 to 39.2 million substrates by 2027. The research firm also expects that OLED panels for tablet PCs will be shipped from 3.9 million substrates this year to 24.2 million substrates in 2027.

“The expansion of OLED applications in IT devices is expected to continue,” said YJ Kim, CEO of Magnachip. “Magnachip will extend its premium PMIC product line through technological validation for a wide range of IT applications to address changing market demand and design requirements.”

Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: MX) (“Magnachip” or the “Company”) today is correcting an error to its press release issued on November 2, 2022 announcing the Company’s financial results for the third quarter of 2022. Subsequent to the furnishing of the press release, the Company identified a scrivener’s error in the Non-GAAP reconciliation table attached to the press release for Adjusted Net Income per common share (basic and diluted) for the nine month period ended September 30, 2021, which should have been $0.82 and $0.78 per share, respectively, consistent with the Company’s prior reports for that historical period. No other amounts or information reported in the press release were changed. The complete, corrected release follows:

 

Magnachip Reports Results for Third Quarter 2022

  • Revenue of $71.2 million was within our guidance range. The year-over-year and sequential decline were primarily driven by the supply shortages of OLED wafers in the 2nd half of this year that impacted design-in projects from our large panel customer in Korea.
  • Gross profit margin was 24.2%, below the low end of our guidance range as we recorded a $3.3 million charge to scrap 12-inch wafers as a result of slowing demand caused by elevated smartphone inventories in China.
  • GAAP diluted loss per share was $0.38.
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.02.

 

SEOUL, South KoreaNov. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: MX) (“Magnachip” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2022.

(PRNewsfoto/Magnachip Semiconductor)Commenting on the results for the third quarter of 2022, YJ Kim, Magnachip’s chief executive officer stated, “Our Q3 revenue of $71.2 million was within our guidance range. As we mentioned last quarter, our Display business in the 2nd half is impacted by supply shortages of 28nm 12-inch OLED wafers that impacted design-in projects from our large panel customer in Korea, which are typically given in advance based on future wafer supply allocation. In addition, China covid lockdowns and the dramatic slowdown in consumer spending due to inflationary pressures reduced demand for smartphones and TVs and resulted in an oversupply of channel inventories, particularly in China. Our Power business also slowed due to lower consumer spending.”

YJ Kim continued, “While the global economic situation remains challenging, our balance sheet is strong, and we are focused on executing a recovery of our Display business. During the quarter, we successfully released our new OLED DDIC sample to our new panel customer and we expect to begin mass production in 2023. In addition, due to the global economic slowdown, we are seeing more wafer capacity availability and we are in discussion with multiple foundries to secure capacity and believe that our 2023 wafer supply will be more than two times higher than 2022. As such, we expect to see a significant recovery of Display business in 2023.”

___________
(1) Following the consummation of the sale of the Foundry Services Group business and Fab 4 in Q3 2020, and for a period of up to three years, we will provide transitional foundry services to the buyer for foundry products manufactured in our fabrication facility located in Gumi (“Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services”). Management believes that disclosing revenue of Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services separately from the standard products business allows investors to better understand the results of our core standard products display solutions and power solutions business lines.
(2) Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed in conjunction with GAAP results, can provide a meaningful understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business and operations and assist in evaluating our core operating performance. However, such non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should not be considered as a substitute for net income (loss) or as a better indicator of our operating performance than measures that are presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is included in this press release.

 

Q4 2022 Financial Guidance
The Company’s near-term outlook is being challenged by previous OLED wafer allocation constraints that impacted 2nd half design-in projects, elevated smartphone channel inventories, a pushout of the initial mass production ramp of our new OLED customer and weakening demand in consumer end markets on growing recession fears and cost increases, including labor, due to inflationary pressures. In addition, we estimate our Q4 revenue will be further negatively impacted by approximately $5 million of foreign exchange hedging instruments. While actual results may vary, looking into the next quarter, Magnachip currently expects:

  • Revenue to be in the range of $57 million to $62 million, including about $7 million of Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services.
  • Gross profit margin to be in the range of 26 % to 28%.

 

Q3 2022 Earnings Conference Call
Magnachip will host a corresponding conference call at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, November 2, 2022, to discuss its financial results. In advance of the conference call, all participants must use the following link to complete the online registration process. Upon registering, each participant will receive access details for this event including the dial-in numbers, a PIN number, and an e-mail with detailed instructions to join the conference call.

We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income as supplemental measures of our performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA for the periods indicated as EBITDA (as defined below), adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense, (ii) Foreign currency loss, net, (iii) Derivative valuation gain, net, (iv) Inventory reserve related to Huawei, (v) Merger-related costs and (vi) Other charges, net. EBITDA for the periods indicated is defined as net income (loss) before interest income, net, income tax expense (benefit) and depreciation and amortization.

We prepare Adjusted Net Income by adjusting net income (loss) 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 for the periods as net income (loss), adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense, (ii) Foreign currency loss, net, (iii) Derivative valuation gain, net, (iv) Inventory reserve related to Huawei, (v) Merger-related costs, (vi) Other charges, net and (vii) Income tax effect on non-GAAP adjustments.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, Other charges, net includes $2.8 million of one-time employee incentives, in each period, and professional service fees and expenses of $0.2 million and $1.0 million, respectively, incurred in connection with certain strategic evaluations, both of which were offset in part by a $0.5 million gain on sale of certain legacy equipment of the closed back-end line in our fabrication facility in Gumi. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, Other charges, net includes professional service fees and expenses of $0.2 million and $3.4 million, respectively, incurred in connection with the regulatory requests, both of which were offset in part by a $0.7 million legal settlement gain related to certain expenses incurred in prior periods in connection with our legacy Fab 4 (which was sold during the year ended December 31, 2020) and awarded in the third quarter of 2021.

  • Revenue of $71.2 million was within our guidance range. The year-over-year and sequential decline were primarily driven by the supply shortages of OLED wafers in the 2nd half of this year that impacted design-in projects from our large panel customer in Korea.
  • Gross profit margin was 24.2%, below the low end of our guidance range as we recorded a $3.3 million charge to scrap 12-inch wafers as a result of slowing demand caused by elevated smartphone inventories in China.
  • GAAP diluted loss per share was $0.38.
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.02.

 

SEOUL, South KoreaNov. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: MX) (“Magnachip” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2022.

(PRNewsfoto/Magnachip Semiconductor)Commenting on the results for the third quarter of 2022, YJ Kim, Magnachip’s chief executive officer stated, “Our Q3 revenue of $71.2 million was within our guidance range. As we mentioned last quarter, our Display business in the 2nd half is impacted by supply shortages of 28nm 12-inch OLED wafers that impacted design-in projects from our large panel customer in Korea, which are typically given in advance based on future wafer supply allocation. In addition, China covid lockdowns and the dramatic slowdown in consumer spending due to inflationary pressures reduced demand for smartphones and TVs and resulted in an oversupply of channel inventories, particularly in China. Our Power business also slowed due to lower consumer spending.”

YJ Kim continued, “While the global economic situation remains challenging, our balance sheet is strong, and we are focused on executing a recovery of our Display business. During the quarter, we successfully released our new OLED DDIC sample to our new panel customer and we expect to begin mass production in 2023. In addition, due to the global economic slowdown, we are seeing more wafer capacity availability and we are in discussion with multiple foundries to secure capacity and believe that our 2023 wafer supply will be more than two times higher than 2022. As such, we expect to see a significant recovery of Display business in 2023.”

___________
(1) Following the consummation of the sale of the Foundry Services Group business and Fab 4 in Q3 2020, and for a period of up to three years, we will provide transitional foundry services to the buyer for foundry products manufactured in our fabrication facility located in Gumi (“Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services”). Management believes that disclosing revenue of Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services separately from the standard products business allows investors to better understand the results of our core standard products display solutions and power solutions business lines.
(2) Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed in conjunction with GAAP results, can provide a meaningful understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business and operations and assist in evaluating our core operating performance. However, such non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should not be considered as a substitute for net income (loss) or as a better indicator of our operating performance than measures that are presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is included in this press release.

 

Q4 2022 Financial Guidance
The Company’s near-term outlook is being challenged by previous OLED wafer allocation constraints that impacted 2nd half design-in projects, elevated smartphone channel inventories, a pushout of the initial mass production ramp of our new OLED customer and weakening demand in consumer end markets on growing recession fears and cost increases, including labor, due to inflationary pressures. In addition, we estimate our Q4 revenue will be further negatively impacted by approximately $5 million of foreign exchange hedging instruments. While actual results may vary, looking into the next quarter, Magnachip currently expects:

  • Revenue to be in the range of $57 million to $62 million, including about $7 million of Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services.
  • Gross profit margin to be in the range of 26 % to 28%.

 

Q3 2022 Earnings Conference Call
Magnachip will host a corresponding conference call at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, November 2, 2022, to discuss its financial results.

To maximize energy efficiency in power devices, Magnachip’s new 200V MOSFETs incorporate third-generation trench MOSFET technology. The capacitance was reduced by 50% compared to the previous generation 100V MV MOSFET and the enhanced design of the core cell and termination helps lower RDS(on)* and total gate charge** to achieve a high figure of merit.

In addition, these third-generation MOSFETs are available in surface mount device TO-Leadless Package (TOLL), M2PAK and TO-220 of a through-hole type respectively to reduce product size and enhance heat dissipation. Furthermore, the energy efficiency of these MOSFETs is greatly increased by fast switching and high power density. Coupled with a guaranteed operating junction temperature from -55°C up to 175°C and a high level of avalanche ruggedness, these MOSFETs are well-suited for LEV motor controllers and industrial power supplies requiring high efficiency and stable power supply.

Omdia, a global market research firm, estimates that the annual growth rates of the automotive and industrial sectors of the global silicon power MOSFET market will be 11.5% and 9.6% respectively from 2020 to 2025. In particular, LEV markets are expanding quickly alongside efforts to accelerate decarbonisation and demand for efficient and affordable vehicles.

“The development of advanced applications in the automotive and industrial sectors is driving the need for high-performance MV MOSFETs,” said YJ Kim, CEO of Magnachip. “Magnachip will continue to upgrade its MV MOSFET product line, ranging from 40V to 200V, which will enable our customers to strengthen their product competitiveness.”

*RDS(on): On resistance, the resistance value between the drain and the source of MOSFETs during on-state operation

**Total gate charge (Qg): the amount of charge required to be injected into the gate electrode to turn ON (drive) the MOSFET

 

Product features

  • low RDS(on) and switching loss
  • great heat dissipation performance
  • guaranteed operating junction temperature from -55°C up to 175°C
  • a wide range of application, such as LEVs, battery management systems and switch mode power supplies

  • Revenue of $101.4 million was down 2.6% sequentially and down 11.0% year-over-year (YoY). The YoY decrease was mainly due to severe supply shortages for 28nm 12″ OLED wafers, partially offset by an 11.1% YoY increase in Power solutions business revenue.
  • Gross profit margin was 28.6%, down 890 basis points from Q1 and down 120 basis points from Q2 a year ago. The sequential decrease was primarily the result of: 1) the prior quarter benefiting 200 basis points from a one-time timing mismatch of lower cost 12″ wafers, 2) lower demand for China smartphones resulting in an inventory reserve of approximately $4.7 million related to 12″ display products, 3) higher foundry cost relating to 12″ wafers and 4) unfavorable product mix.
  • GAAP diluted loss per share was $0.07.
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.23.

 

SEOUL, South KoreaAug. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: MX) (“Magnachip” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2022.

Commenting on the results for the second quarter of 2022, YJ Kim, Magnachip’s chief executive officer stated, “In the second quarter of 2022, we reported revenue of $101.4 million and non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.23 despite an increasingly challenging macroeconomic environment. Similar to last quarter, our OLED revenue continued to be impacted by severe supply shortages for 28nm 12-inch wafers and our Power solutions business continued its positive momentum of double-digit YoY growth.”

YJ Kim continued, “Looking ahead, we are facing several challenges in the 2nd half of 2022 that will further impact our near-term results before we expect recovery in 2023. First, lower allocation of 28nm wafers impacted timing of design wins. Second, our new customer ramp schedule will be delayed due to product feature changes. And third, we are seeing a slowdown of the smartphone market. However, we have successfully sampled the full working chip to our new OLED customer, and we expect to get better wafer allocations starting at the end of 2022. We are confident that we will begin to see a recovery of our OLED business in 2023. Accordingly, our Board of Directors has reaffirmed the remaining $37.5 million stock repurchase program that we announced previously. We have also activated the Strategic Review Committee to assist the Board in reviewing, considering, exploring and evaluating strategic alternatives that may be available to the Company to maximize shareholder value while we focus on executing our OLED recovery plan in 2023 and continuing our success in the Power solutions business.”

 

Stock Repurchase Program and Strategic Review Committee

The Company’s Board of Directors reaffirmed the remaining $37.5 million stock repurchase program that was announced previously. Magnachip believes that this stock repurchase program and continuing to drive its OLED business recovery plan combined with the continued momentum of its Power solutions business, the Company is well positioned to drive significant accretion and value for shareholders over the coming years.

Magnachip also announced today that the Board of Directors has activated the Strategic Review Committee to assist the Board in reviewing, considering, exploring and evaluating strategic alternatives that may be available to the Company to maximize shareholder value. The committee’s mandate is to review the Company’s capital allocation plans and actively explore potential strategic and transactional opportunities, including, but not limited to, joint ventures, strategic partnerships and M&A possibilities that may arise in the future, and make recommendations to the Board regarding those matters, as appropriate. The Strategic Review Committee includes directors Melvin Keating, Ilbok Lee, Camillo Martino and Gary Tanner.

(1) Following the consummation of the sale of the Foundry Services Group business and Fab 4 in Q3 2020, and for a period of up to three years, we will provide transitional foundry services to the buyer for foundry products manufactured in our fabrication facility located in Gumi (“Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services”). Management believes that disclosing revenue of Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services separately from the standard products business allows investors to better understand the results of our core standard products display solutions and power solutions business lines.
(2) In Q2 2022, operating income of $2.0 million included professional service fees and expenses of $0.8 million incurred in connection with certain strategic evaluations. In Q2 2021, operating income of $1.6 million included professional service fees and expenses of $2.5 million incurred in connection with the contemplated merger transaction and non-recurring professional service fees and expenses of $2.6 million incurred in connection with the regulatory requests.
(3) Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed in conjunction with GAAP results, can provide a meaningful understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business and operations and assist in evaluating our core operating performance. However, such non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should not be considered as a substitute for net income (loss) or as a better indicator of our operating performance than measures that are presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is included in this press release.

 

Q3 2022 Financial Guidance

The Company’s near-term outlook is being challenged by further OLED wafer shortages, pushout of initial mass production ramp of our new OLED customer outside of Korea, weakening demand in consumer end markets on growing recession fears and cost increases, including labor, due to inflationary pressures.  While actual results may vary, looking into the next quarter, Magnachip currently expects:

  • Revenue to be in the range of $70 million to $75 million, including about $9 million of Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services.
  • Gross profit margin to be in the range of 26.5% to 28.5%.

 

Q2 2022 Earnings Conference Call

Magnachip will host a corresponding conference call at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET on Monday, August 8, 2022, to discuss its financial results. In advance of the conference call, all participants must use the following link to complete the online registration process. Upon registering, each participant will receive access details for this event including the dial-in numbers, a PIN number, and an e-mail with detailed instructions to join the conference call.

– New product features strong protection for battery circuits and will help the company grow its global market share of products for battery-powered electronic devices

 

SEOUL, South Korea, July 18, 2022 – Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (“Magnachip”) (NYSE: MX) announced today that the company has unveiled a new 24V Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor (MOSFET) for wireless earphone batteries.

The new 24V MOSFET addresses the goal of battery designers for long battery life after a quick charge by reducing conduction loss. The core cell density of this new product has been increased by 30% as compared to the previous version, while the design of the core cell, termination and source pads has been enhanced in order to reduce the *RDS(on) by 24%.

As a result, the conduction loss is significantly reduced while charging and discharging and the overall efficiency for protecting battery circuits is improved. In addition, this 24V MOSFET features Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protection to suppress abnormal voltages of more than 5V and can withstand a maximum of 2kV of ESD for strong circuit protection. With these features, the 24V MOSFET can help extend the service life of earphone batteries.

Omdia, a global market research firm, estimates that the wireless earphone market will grow 15.1% annually from 2020 to 2026. This new 24V MOSFET is now in mass production and is being supplied for premium earphone batteries used by global earphone manufacturers.

“Magnachip has developed this 24V MOSFET with outstanding performance after releasing three types of low-voltage MOSFETs that were designed to meet the rigorous demands of smartphone batteries,” said YJ Kim, CEO of Magnachip. “Once again, we have demonstrated technology leadership with this new product and we look forward to expanding our family of products for battery-powered devices in the near future by introducing 24V MOSFETs for VR glasses and wearable devices.”

 

* RDS(on): On resistance, the resistance value between the drain and the source of MOSFETs during on-state operation
