매그나칩믹스드시그널은 매그나칩반도체 유한회사(대표이사 김영준, 이하 ‘매그나칩’)의 자회사로서, TV용 BLU(Back Light Unit) LED 드라이버, LED 조명 드라이버 등을 포함한 다양한 전력 반도체를 10년 이상 개발하고 공급해 왔다. 매그나칩믹스드시그널 제품의 품질은 메이저 TV 제조업체, OLED 패널 업체, 그리고 스마트폰 제조업체들과의 성공적인 협력과 결과물로 검증되었고, 매그나칩믹스드시그널은 이를 기반으로 전 세계에 고객층을 확보하고 있다.

매그나칩은 2019년부터 전력관리반도체와 레벨 쉬프터 연구 및 개발을 진행해 왔다. 이두 제품은 이러한 매그나칩의 기술력이 집약되어 높은 효율성, 저전력 소모, 다기능, 멀티 채널 등의 성능을 제공한다.

다기능 전력관리반도체는 빌트인 컨트롤러, 스위치, 로직 회로, 부스트 레귤레이터 2개, 네거티브 LDO(low-dropout) 레귤레이터 2개, 전압 강하용 고전류 레귤레이터 3개, 포지티브 연산 증폭기 2개 등이 통합된 단일 칩으로 개발되었다. 또한, I²C*를 이용하여 가변 전압 관리, 내장형 On/Off 배열 조절, 보호 회로, 스위치 주파수 가변 등이 가능하다. 이 전력관리반도체로 애플리케이션의 효율성은 높아지고 전력 소모는 감소하여 IT 기기의 하이엔드 디스플레이 작동에 필요한 전력이 안정적으로 공급된다.

멀티 채널 레벨 쉬프터는 24개 이상의 스위치 On/Off 전압을 변환하여 신호를 효율적으로 조정한다. 그래서, 고해상도 디스플레이는 물론, UHD 패널에서 필요한 엄격한 채널 요구사항을 충족한다.

매그나칩 김영준 대표 이사는 “매그나칩믹스드시그널 파워 솔루션은 IT 디스플레이 시장에 최적의 솔루션을 제공할 것”이라며 “앞으로도 계속해서 적기에 제품을 개발 및 공급하여 매그나칩의 성공적인 사업 역사를 이어 나갈 것”이라고 말했다.

___________

(1)

Following the consummation of the sale of the Foundry Services Group business and Fab 4 in Q3 2020, we provided transitional foundry services to the buyer for foundry products manufactured in our fabrication facility located in Gumi, Korea, known as “Fab 3” (“Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services”). The contractual obligation to provide the Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services ended August 31, 2023, and we are winding down these foundry services and planning to convert portions of the idle capacity to PAS products beginning around the second half of 2024. Because these foundry services during the wind-down period are still provided to the same buyer by us using our Fab 3 based on mutually agreed terms and conditions, we will continue to report our revenue from providing these foundry services and related cost of sales within the Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services line in our consolidated statement of operations until such wind down is completed. 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 MSS and PAS businesses.

(2)

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 our 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 loss 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.

 

Q2 and 2024 Financial Guidance

Beginning in Q1, the Company begins reporting results under its newly organized businesses: MSS (Mixed-Signal Solutions) and PAS (Power Analog Solutions). While actual results may vary, Magnachip currently expects the following:

 

For Q2 2024:

  • Consolidated revenue to be in the range of $49 to $54 million, including approximately $1.5 million of Transitional Foundry Services.
    • MSS revenue to be in the range of $9.5 to $11.5 million. This compares with MSS equivalent revenue of $9.0 million in Q1 2024 and $12.4 million in Q2 2023
    • PAS revenue to be in the range of $38 to $41 million. This compares with PAS equivalent revenue of $36.5 million in Q1 2024 and $39 million in Q2 2023.
  • Consolidated gross profit margin to be in the range of 17% to 19%.
    • MSS gross profit margin to be in the range of 30% to 33%. This compares with MSS equivalent gross profit margin of 44.6% in Q1 2024, which included non-recurring engineering revenue, and 36.4% in Q2 2023.
    • PAS gross profit margin to be in the range of 15% to 17%, primarily as a result of the impact of idle capacity from the expected decline in Transitional Foundry Services revenue. This compares with PAS equivalent gross profit margin of 15.4% in Q1 2024 and 23.1% in Q2 2023.

 

For the full-year 2024, we reiterate our prior guidance:

  • MSS revenue to grow double digits year-over-year as compared with MSS equivalent revenue of $44.4 million in 2023.
  • PAS revenue to grow double digits year-over-year as compared with PAS equivalent revenue of $151.3 million in 2023.
  • Consolidated revenue flat-to-up-slightly year-over-year as recovery in MSS and PAS is offset by the phase-out of Transitional Foundry Services.
  • Consolidated gross profit margin between 17% to 20%, primarily as a result of the impact of idle capacity expected from the phase-out of Transitional Foundry Services. This compares with the consolidated gross profit margin of 22.4% in 2023.

 

Q1 2024 Earnings Conference Call

Magnachip will host a corresponding conference call at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, May 2, 2024, to discuss its financial results.

We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Loss as supplemental measures of our performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA for the periods indicated as EBITDA (as defined below), adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense, (ii) Foreign currency loss (gain), net, (iii) Derivative valuation loss (gain), net and (iv) Early termination charges. EBITDA for the periods indicated is defined as net loss before interest income, interest expense, income tax benefit and depreciation and amortization.

We prepare Adjusted Net Loss by adjusting net loss to eliminate the impact of a number of non-cash expenses and other items that may be either one time or recurring that we do not consider to be indicative of our core ongoing operating performance. We believe that Adjusted Net Loss is particularly useful because it reflects the impact of our asset base and capital structure on our operating performance. We define Adjusted Net Loss for the periods as net loss, adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense, (ii) Foreign currency loss (gain), net, (iii) Derivative valuation loss (gain), net, (iv) Early termination charges and (v) Income tax effect on non-GAAP adjustments.

For the three months ended March 31, 2023, we recorded in our consolidated statement of operations $8,449 thousand of early termination charges in connection with the voluntary resignation program offered to the employees during the first quarter of 2023.

SEOUL, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 28, 2024– Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: MX) (“Magnachip” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2023.

YJ Kim, Magnachip’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “As we reflect on the past year and look ahead, we’re shaping our future with the transformation of our business. First, we have shifted our Display business to be laser-focused on the burgeoning OLED market in China and our efforts there are already showing promising results. We now have two design-wins and a dedicated team on the ground to help build on this momentum. Additionally, we are working to optimize our Gumi Fab to transition from lower-margin Transitional Foundry Services to higher-margin Power products. Finally, we’ve restructured our company to streamline operations, enhance shareholder value and increase transparency for our investors with the completion of our legal separation of historical Display and Power businesses into MSS and PAS.”

YJ continued, “Looking ahead, for full year 2024, we currently expect double-digit revenue growth in both the newly organized MSS and PAS businesses. We currently expect total consolidated company revenue for full year 2024 to remain relatively flat to slightly up due to the phase-out of Transitional Foundry Services. We also anticipate PAS gross margin to be challenged during the transition period while we convert the Transitional Foundry Services capacity to Power capacity, but we are committed to navigating this period with a clear focus on long-term value creation for shareholders.”

(1) Following the consummation of the sale of the Foundry Services Group business and Fab 4 in Q3 2020, we provided transitional foundry services to the buyer for foundry products manufactured in our fabrication facility located in Gumi, Korea, known as “Fab 3” (“Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services”). The contractual obligation to provide the Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services ended August 31, 2023, and we are planning to wind down these foundry services and convert portions of the idle capacity to PAS products beginning around the second half of 2024. Because these foundry services during the wind-down period are still provided to the same buyer by us using our Fab 3 based on mutually agreed terms and conditions, we will continue to report our revenue from providing these foundry services and related cost of sales within the Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services line in our consolidated statement of operations until such wind down is completed. 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) 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 our 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 (loss) 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.

 

Q1 and 2024 Financial Guidance

Beginning in Q1, the Company will begin reporting results under its newly organized businesses: MSS (Mixed-Signal Solutions) and PAS (Power-Analog Solutions). While actual results may vary, Magnachip currently expects the following:

 

For Q1 2024:

  • Consolidated revenue to be in the range of $46 to $51 million, including approximately $3 million of Transitional Foundry Services.
    • MSS revenue to be in the range of $8 to $10 million. This compares with MSS equivalent revenue of $8.6 million in Q4 2023.
    • PAS revenue to be in the range of $35 to $38 million. This compares with PAS equivalent revenue of $32.6 million in Q4 2023.
  • Consolidated gross profit margin to be in the range of 17% to 20%.
    • MSS gross profit margin to be in the range of 40% to 43%, which includes the positive impact of expected one-time non-recurring engineering revenue. This compares with MSS equivalent gross profit margin of 41.3% in Q4 2023, which also included one-time non-recurring engineering revenue.
    • PAS gross profit margin to be in the range of 15% to 18% due primarily to the expected decline in Transitional Foundry Services revenue. This compares with PAS equivalent gross profit margin of 18.0% in Q4 2023.

 

For the full-year 2024:

  • MSS revenue to grow double digits year-over-year as compared with MSS equivalent revenue of $44.4 million in 2023.
  • PAS revenue to grow double digits year-over-year as compared with PAS equivalent revenue of $151.3 million in 2023.
  • Consolidated revenue flat-to-up-slightly year-over-year as recovery in MSS and PAS is offset by the phase-out of Transitional Foundry Services.
  • Consolidated gross profit margin between 17% to 20% due to idle capacity expected from the phase-out of Transitional Foundry Services. This compares with the consolidated gross profit margin of 22.4% in 2023.

 

Q4 2023 Earnings Conference Call

Magnachip will host a corresponding conference call at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, February 28, 2024, to discuss its financial results. In advance of the conference call, all participants must use the following link to complete the online registration process. Upon registering, each participant will receive access details for this event including the dial-in numbers, a PIN number, and an e-mail with detailed instructions to join the conference call. A live and archived webcast of the conference call and a copy of earnings release will be accessible from the ‘Investors’ section of the Company’s website at www.magnachip.com/kr.

We present Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) as a supplemental measure of our performance. We define Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) for the periods indicated as operating loss adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense and (ii) Early termination and other charges, net.

For the year ended December 31, 2023, Early termination and other charges includes $8,449 thousand of termination related charges in connection with the voluntary resignation program that we offered to certain employees during the first quarter of 2023 and $802 thousand of one-time employee incentives.

For the year ended December 31, 2022, Early termination and other charges, net includes $2,821 thousand of one-time employee incentives and professional service fees and expenses of $1,014 thousand, incurred in connection with certain strategic evaluations, both of which were offset in part by a $537 thousand gain on sale of certain legacy equipment of the closed back-end line in our fabrication facility in Gumi.

We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) as supplemental measures of our performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA for the periods indicated as EBITDA (as defined below), adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense, (ii) Foreign currency loss (gain), net, (iii) Derivative valuation loss (gain), net and (iv) Early termination and other charges, net. EBITDA for the periods indicated is defined as net income (loss) before interest income, interest expense, income tax expense (benefit) and depreciation and amortization.

We prepare Adjusted Net Income (Loss) by adjusting net income (loss) to eliminate the impact of a number of non-cash expenses and other items that may be either one time or recurring that we do not consider to be indicative of our core ongoing operating performance. We believe that Adjusted Net Income (Loss) is particularly useful because it reflects the impact of our asset base and capital structure on our operating performance. We define Adjusted Net Income (Loss) for the periods as net income (loss), adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense, (ii) Foreign currency loss (gain), net, (iii) Derivative valuation loss (gain), net, (iv) Early termination and other charges, net and (v) Income tax effect on non-GAAP adjustments.

For the year ended December 31, 2023, Early termination and other charges includes $8,449 thousand of termination related charges in connection with the voluntary resignation program that we offered to certain employees during the first quarter of 2023 and $802 thousand of one-time employee incentives.

– 높은 강건성을 가진 30V MXT LV MOSFET으로 전동식 파워 스티어링에 안정적인 전력 공급

 

2023년 12월 18일, 매그나칩반도체 유한회사(대표이사 김영준, 이하 ‘매그나칩’) (NYSE:MX)는 자동차 전동식 파워 스티어링(EPS: Electric Power Steering)의 전자 제어 장치(ECU: electronic control unit)에 사용되는 30V *MXT LV MOSFET(Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor)를 양산하기 시작했다고 밝혔다. 현재 이 제품은 글로벌 자동차 제조사의 차량 모델에 탑재되고 있다.

매그나칩 차량용 30V MXT LV MOSFET 신제품
매그나칩 차량용 30V MXT LV MOSFET 신제품

 

현재 양산되고 있는 30V MXT LV MOSFET(AMDV030N150URH) 신제품은 전기 모터를 이용해 차량의 방향 전환 능력을 보조하는 전동식 파워 스티어링에 안정적인 전력을 공급한다. 이 제품은 엄격한 AEC-Q101 차량용 반도체 신뢰성 기준을 충족하며, -55°C~175°C의 광범위한 온도 범위에서 안정적으로 동작한다.

이번 신제품은 두꺼운 게이트 산화물에 강건성이 높은 MOSFET 구조를 적용하여 낮은 온저항과 우수한 스위칭 특성을 제공한다. 이러한 특성으로 애플리케이션에서 발생하는 스위칭 잡음이 줄고 높은 전력 효율로 인해 시스템 성능이 향상된다. 또한, 3.3mm x 3.3mm의 PDFN33 패키지로 제품 크기가 작아지면서 전자 제어 장치의 소형화 설계가 용이해졌다.

매그나칩 김영준 대표 이사는 “매그나칩은 차별화된 기술력을 통해 콤팩트한 크기에 높은 신뢰성을 보유한 전동식 파워 스티어링 전자 제어 장치용 MOSFET 제품을 출시했다”라며, “앞으로도 엄격한 품질 관리와 혁신적인 기술로 완성된 차량용 파워솔루션을 글로벌 자동차 부품 업체에 적기에 공급하면서 전장 시장을 적극적으로 확대해 갈 것”이라고 말했다.

Magnachip Reports Results for Third Quarter 2023

  • Revenue of $61.2 million was in-line with guidance.
  • Gross profit margin of 23.6% increased 140 basis points from Q2, mainly driven by higher fab utilization.
  • GAAP diluted loss per share was $0.13.
  • Non-GAAP diluted loss per share was $0.04.
  • Completed $5.4 million of stock buybacks during Q3.
  • Ended Q3 with a solid balance sheet with $166.6 million cash and no debt.
  • The internal separation of our Display and Power businesses is expected to be completed and be effective on January 1st, 2024.

 

SEOUL, South KoreaNov. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: MX) (“Magnachip” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the third quarter 2023.YJ Kim, Magnachip’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “Our Q3 results were in-line with our guidance. In our Display business, we have completed the qualification of two DDI chips at our new tier 1 panel maker and are going through the qualification process with two smartphone makers. We are now working on additional Driver ICs that cover broader segments of the smartphone market to include mass market smartphones in addition to the premium models. Despite near-term market challenges, our outlook for long-term growth remains positive. Our confidence is driven by our strong belief that our display products offer distinct competitive advantages that position us well for success in the rapidly growing OLED market in Asia.”

YJ continued, “In our Power business, our product portfolio is getting stronger as we continue to focus on rolling out next-generation power products to maintain our momentum of design-in/wins. Looking ahead, amid heightened global geopolitical and macroeconomic uncertainty, we expect demand to remain soft, driven by normal Q4 seasonality and inventory correction in industrial end markets.”

___________
(1) Following the consummation of the sale of the Foundry Services Group business and Fab 4 in Q3 2020, we provided transitional foundry services to the buyer for foundry products manufactured in our fabrication facility located in Gumi, Korea, known as “Fab 3” (“Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services”). The contractual obligation to provide the Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services ended August 31, 2023, and we are planning to wind down these foundry services and convert portions of the idle capacity to Power Solutions standard products beginning around the second half of 2024. Because these foundry services during the wind-down period are still provided to the same buyer by us using our Fab 3 based on mutually agreed terms and conditions, we will continue to report our revenue from providing these foundry services and related cost of sales within the Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services line in our consolidated statement of operations until such wind down is completed. 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) 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 our 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 (loss) 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 2023 Financial Guidance
Amid heightened global geopolitical and macroeconomic uncertainty, we expect Power demand to soften driven by normal Q4 seasonality and inventory correction in industrial end markets.

While actual results may vary, Magnachip currently expects the following for Q4 2023:

  • Revenue to be in the range of $50 million to $55 million, including approximately $8 million of Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services.
  • Gross profit margin to be in the range of 22.5% to 24.5%.

 

Q3 2023 Earnings Conference Call
Magnachip will host a corresponding conference call at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, November 2, 2023, to discuss its financial results.

We present Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) as a supplemental measure of our performance. We define Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) for the periods indicated as operating income (loss) adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense and (ii) Early termination and other charges, net.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2023, we recorded in our consolidated statement of operations $8,449 thousand of termination related charges in connection with the voluntary resignation program that we offered to certain employees during the first quarter of 2023. For the three months ended June 30, 2023 and nine months ended September 30, 2023, we recorded $802 thousand of one-time employee incentives, in each period.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, Early termination and other charges, net includes $2,821 thousand of one-time employee incentives, in each period, and professional service fees and expenses of $217 thousand and $1,014 thousand, respectively, incurred in connection with certain strategic evaluations, both of which were offset in part by a $537 thousand gain on sale of certain legacy equipment of the closed back-end line in our fabrication facility in Gumi.

We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) as supplemental measures of our performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA for the periods indicated as EBITDA (as defined below), adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense, (ii) Foreign currency loss (gain), net, (iii) Derivative valuation loss (gain), net and (iv) Early termination and other charges, net. EBITDA for the periods indicated is defined as net loss before interest income, interest expense, income tax benefit and depreciation and amortization.

We prepare Adjusted Net Income (Loss) by adjusting net loss to eliminate the impact of a number of non-cash expenses and other items that may be either one time or recurring that we do not consider to be indicative of our core ongoing operating performance. We believe that Adjusted Net Income (Loss) is particularly useful because it reflects the impact of our asset base and capital structure on our operating performance. We define Adjusted Net Income (Loss) for the periods as net loss, adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense, (ii) Foreign currency loss (gain), net, (iii) Derivative valuation loss (gain), net, (iv) Early termination and other charges, net and (v) Income tax effect on non-GAAP adjustments.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2023, we recorded in our consolidated statement of operations $8,449 thousand of termination related charges in connection with the voluntary resignation program that we offered to certain employees during the first quarter of 2023. For the three months ended June 30, 2023 and nine months ended September 30, 2023, we recorded $802 thousand of one-time employee incentives, in each period.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, Early termination and other charges, net includes $2,821 thousand of one-time employee incentives, in each period, and professional service fees and expenses of $217 thousand and $1,014 thousand, respectively, incurred in connection with certain strategic evaluations, both of which were offset in part by a $537 thousand gain on sale of certain legacy equipment of the closed back-end line in our fabrication facility in Gumi.
