MagnaChip Announces New York Stock Exchange Listing Extension

SEOUL, South Korea and CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation (“MagnaChip” or the “Company”) (NYSE: MX), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products, today announced that it has received an extension for continued listing and trading of the Company’s common stock on the New York Stock Exchange ( the “NYSE”).

The extension provides the Company an additional trading period up to April 1, 2015, during which it can file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 (the “2013 Form 10-K”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), subject to reassessment on an ongoing basis. The NYSE will continue to closely monitor the Company’s restatement process and timing, and could initiate accelerated trading suspension prior to the end of the six-month trading period extension if that process fails to progress satisfactorily during the extension. In addition, in the event the Company does not complete its 2013 Form 10-K filing with the SEC by April 1, 2015, the NYSE will move forward with the initiation of suspension and delisting procedures.

As previously reported, the delay in filing the 2013 Form 10-K is a result of the Company’s ongoing internal investigative process and restatement of certain prior period financial statements.
