SEOUL, South Korea and CUPERTINO, Calif., July 30, 2013 /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, 2013.
Revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was $215.3 million, a 4.9% increase compared to $205.3 million for the first quarter of 2013 and a 6.2% increase compared to $202.6 million for the second quarter of 2012.
Gross margin was $71.0 million or 33.0%, as a percent of revenue, for the second quarter of 2013. This compares to gross margin of $65.7 million or 32.0% for the first quarter of 2013 and $62.9 million or 31.0% for the second quarter of 2012.
Net income, on a GAAP basis, for the second quarter of 2013 totaled $4.4 million or $0.12 per diluted share. This compares to a net loss of $7.4 million or $0.21 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2013 and a net income of $4.3 million or $0.12 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012.
“We delivered solid results in the second quarter. Revenue of $215.3 million dollars was up 4.9% sequentially and up 6.2% year-over-year. Gross margin of 33.0% was up 100 basis points compared to last quarter and up 200 basis points compared to Q2 of last year,” said Sang Park, MagnaChip Chairman and CEO. “We’re excited that our effort to focus on fast growing markets with our expanding list of innovative partners has enabled us to deliver ten consecutive quarters of meeting or exceeding our financial guidance, in spite of the recent soft demand from high-end smartphone makers.”
Adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measurement, for the second quarter of 2013 totaled $26.2 million or $0.71 per diluted share compared to $19.7 million or $0.53 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2013 and $17.9 million or $0.48 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012.
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. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is included following the financial statements.
Combined cash balances (cash and cash equivalents plus restricted cash) totaled $192.6 million at the end of the second quarter of 2013, an increase of $9.6 million from the end of the prior quarter. Cash provided from operations totaled approximately $11.0 million for the second quarter of 2013.
