– Q2 Revenue Increased 14.5% Sequentially Driven By Strong Growth From Power Solutions (33.4%) and Foundry (34.6%) Revenue
– Gross Margin Expanded 280 Basis Points to 31.0% in Q2
– Expects Q3 Revenue to Increase 7% to 11% and Gross Margin to Increase 100 to 200 Basis Points on a Sequential Basis
SEOUL, South Korea and CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation (“MagnaChip”) (NYSE: MX), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.
Revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $202.6 million, a 14.5% increase compared to $177.0 million for the first quarter of 2012, and a 0.5% decrease compared to $203.7 million for the second quarter of 2011.
Gross margin was $62.9 million or 31.0%, as a percent of revenue, for the second quarter of 2012. This compares to gross margin of $49.9 million or 28.2% for the first quarter of 2012 and $66.2 million or 32.5% for the second quarter of 2011.
“I am very pleased that the second quarter represented our sixth consecutive quarter of meeting revenue and gross margin guidance in what is being described as a challenging macro environment. Our foundry services and power solutions segments saw greater than anticipated order strength and revenue growth during the quarter,” said Sang Park, MagnaChip Chairman and CEO. “This is possible because of our alignment with strategic customers in high growth markets – including the leading smart phone and tablet PC makers. During the last three years, we have made solid progress shifting our customer base and refocusing our product portfolio. Our direct and indirect revenue from the top two smart phone/tablet PC makers has almost tripled in the first half of this year compared to the first half of 2010.”
Net income, on a GAAP basis, for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $4.3 million or $0.12 per diluted share. This compares to net income of $15.3 million or $0.40 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2012 and net income of $31.6 million or $0.78 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2011. Net income was impacted primarily by a foreign currency loss of $10.6 million during the quarter which was primarily related to non-cash translation losses for intercompany balances that were denominated in U.S. dollars.
Adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measurement, for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $17.9 million or $0.48 per diluted share compared to $6.5 million or $0.17 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2012 and $22.5 million or $0.56 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2011.
Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed in conjunction with GAAP results, can provide a more meaningful understanding of the factors and trends affecting MagnaChip’s business and operations. However, such non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should not be considered as a substitute for net income or as a better indicator of our operating performance than measures that are presented in accordance with GAAP.
Combined cash balances (cash and cash equivalents plus restricted cash) totaled $161.0 million at the end of the second quarter of 2012, an increase of $0.4 million from the end of the prior quarter. Cash provided from operations totaled approximately $26.7 million for the second quarter of 2012.
