SEOUL, South KoreaMay 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: MX) (“Magnachip” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the first quarter 2021.

 

 

“Magnachip delivered solid quarterly results despite the industry-wide supply constraints. Our revenue came in above the midpoint of the company’s Q1 revenue guidance range, driven by strong growth in the Power solutions business. Gross profit margin exceeded the high-end of our expectations due to the improved product mix and higher utilization,” said YJ Kim, Magnachip’s chief executive officer.

Due to the pending merger with an investment vehicle formed by an affiliate of Wise Road Capital LTD pursuant to a definitive agreement executed on March 25, 2021, Magnachip will not be hosting a quarterly earnings conference call and has suspended the practice of providing forward-looking guidance. Please review the ‘Investors’ section of the Company’s website for the quarterly financial results and SEC filings for the latest updates on the pending transaction.

 

(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, the Company will provide transitional foundry services to the buyer for foundry products manufactured in the Company’s 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 businesses.

 (2) In Q1 2021, operating loss of $2.1 million included non-recurring professional fees and certain transaction related expenses of $9.8 million in connection with a definitive agreement (the “Merger Agreement”) that the Company entered into with South Dearborn Limited, an exempted company incorporated in the Cayman Islands with limited liability (“Parent”), formed by an affiliate of Wise Road Capital LTD, and Michigan Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Parent (“Merger Sub”). The Merger Agreement provides that, among other things, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company continuing its corporate existence as the surviving corporation in the Merger and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent.

(3) In Q4 2020, total net income of $66.6 million included one-time recognition of deferred tax benefits of $43.9 million.

(4) Non-GAAP financial measures are calculated based on the results from continuing operations. 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 Magnachip’s 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 from continuing operations 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.

SEOUL, South Korea, Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: MX) (“Magnachip” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2020.

“Q3 represented a pivotal chapter of Magnachip as we successfully closed the sale of the Foundry business and Fab 4 that ultimately resulted in Magnachip becoming a pure-play Products company with a very healthy balance sheet. Across the company, we are making well-planned moves to realign our resources, sharpen our R&D focus on key priority areas, and improve our operational efficiency,” said YJ Kim, Magnachip’s chief executive officer. “During the third quarter, we also delivered solid performance with a 5% sequential revenue growth and a healthy bottom line despite the market disruptions caused by pandemic and geopolitical tension.”

“More importantly, the upswing in demand which began in July has continued into the fourth quarter thus far. We are encouraged by the robust growth opportunities ahead of us, which creates a stronger foundation for profitable growth. We continue to push the envelope on enhancing our competitive position through continuous technology advancement, addressable market expansion and strategic customer engagements.”

Q3 2020 Financial Highlights

(1) Following the consummation of the sale of the Foundry Services Group business and Fab 4, and for a period up to three years, the Company will provide transitional foundry services to the buyer for Foundry products manufactured in the Company’s fabrication facility located in Gumi (“Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services”). Management believes that disclosing revenue of the 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 businesses.
(2) In the third quarter, total net income of $273.0 million included income from discontinued operations, net of tax, of $264.5 million, primarily attributable to the recognition of $287.1 million as gain on sale of the Foundry Services Group and Fab 4.
(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 Magnachip’s 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 from continuing operations 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 2020 financial guidance

The COVID-19 global pandemic is still evolving and continues to reduce our forward visibility. While actual results may vary, Magnachip currently anticipates for Q4 2020:

Revenue to be in the range of $128 million to $136 million, which represents approximately 3% to 9% sequential growth, including $10 million to $11 million of the Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services.
Gross profit margin to be in the range of 25% to 27%.

Third Quarter 2020 Earnings Conference Call

Magnachip will host a conference call at 5 p.m. Eastern Time on October 29, 2020. The conference call will be webcast live and also is available by dialing toll-free at 1-844-536-5472.
