SEOUL, South Korea and SAN JOSE, Calif., July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: MX) (“MagnaChip” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2020.”We executed well and delivered an excellent quarter despite market disruptions caused by COVID-19 by achieving key financial metrics above expectations, said YJ Kim, MagnaChip’s chief executive officer. In addition to delivering outstanding financial results, our team is making substantial progress with the pending sale of our Foundry Services Group business and Fab 4. Based on the progress we made so far, we now anticipate that the transaction likely will close in the third quarter instead of our previous estimate of the September-October timeframe.””The new MagnaChip is undergoing a dramatic transformation to accelerate our profitability. While we can’t be completely immune to the risk of COVID-19 and macroeconomic conditions, we will continue our relentless execution to deliver a successful close of the pending transaction and strengthen our business foundation for profitable growth.”

Q3 2020 financial guidance

Revenue from the continuing operations to be in the range of $118 million to $124 million, including $9.5 million to $10 million of the Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services at cost

On July 20, 2020, our Fab 3 facility in Gumi, South Korea experienced a temporary power outage for approximately 9 hours and 15 minutes as a result of an accident involving branches of a nearby tree falling onto cables connecting one of the electricity pylons that supplies power to the Gumi plant. We are nearly fully operational in our Fab 3 facility as of the date of this earnings report. The accident caused damage to our work-in-process wafers with an estimated total cost of up to approximately $2.3 million. The related impact to our revenue from continuing operations is expected to be negligible. We are currently evaluating potential insurance and other claims that we may have for the above loss and damages.

As we expect to close the pending sale of the Foundry business and Fab 4 in Q3, we will provide a quarterly outlook on continuing operations only. The COVID-19 global pandemic and escalated trade tension are rapidly evolving situations and reduce our forward visibility. While actual results may vary, MagnaChip currently anticipates for Q3 2020:

Gross profit margin from continuing operations to be in the range of 25% to 27%
Without the estimated power outage impact, gross profit margin from continuing operations would have been in the range of 27% and 29%
