SEOUL, South Korea and CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct. 29, 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 third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Revenue for the third quarter of 2013 was $217.8 million, a 1.2% increase compared to $215.3 million for the second quarter of 2013 and a 1.8% decrease compared to $221.9 million for the third quarter of 2012.

Gross margin was $71.9 million or 33.0%, as a percent of revenue, for the third quarter of 2013. This compares to gross margin of $71.0 million or 33.0% for the second quarter of 2013 and $76.4 million or 34.5% for the third quarter of 2012.

Net income, on a GAAP basis, for the third quarter of 2013 totaled $46.7 million or $1.24 per diluted share. This compares to a net income of $4.4 million or $0.12 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2013 and a net income of $48.4 million or $1.30 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2012. Net income was impacted primarily by a foreign currency gain of $43.3 million during the quarter which was primarily related to the non-cash foreign currency translation of intercompany balances that were denominated in U.S. dollars.

“We are pleased to have delivered results that met our financial guidance for the eleventh consecutive quarter. We met our revenue and gross margin guidance through a combination of product and customer diversification and the successful launch of a new product line for our Power Solutions Division,” said Sang Park, MagnaChip Chairman and CEO. “Our smartphone related revenue grew quarter-to-quarter due to the expansion of AMOLED display drivers in high-end smartphones and from an increase of sales to mid- to low-end smartphone customers.”

Adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measurement, for the third quarter of 2013 totaled $28.6 million or $0.76 per diluted share compared to $26.2 million or $0.71 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2013 and $30.4 million or $0.81 per diluted share for the third 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 $158.3 million at the end of the third quarter of 2013, a decrease of $34.4 million from the end of the prior quarter. Cash provided from operations totaled approximately $6.0 million for the third quarter of 2013.
