ST. PETERS, Mo., Aug. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SunEdison Semiconductor Limited (NASDAQ:SEMI) ("SunEdison Semiconductor" or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Results Review

Net sales for the 2016 second quarter were $190.9 million, up 4.7% sequentially compared to $182.3 million in the prior quarter.  The sequential increase was primarily driven by higher unit volume and stable pricing.  Gross profit for the 2016 second quarter was $17.5 million, or 9.2% of net sales, compared to $15.0 million, or 8.2% of net sales in the prior quarter. 

“I am pleased with our second quarter performance. We grew our revenue and gross profits sequentially.  Wafer demand improved quarter-on-quarter across all diameters, and this together with stable average pricing had a positive impact on our revenue,” said Shaker Sadasivam, President and CEO.  “Although there is nothing material to report at this time on our ongoing review of strategic alternatives, those efforts are continuing while we remain focused on delivering high quality products and service for our customers.”

Second quarter 2016 operating loss was $25.9 million, compared to an operating loss of $12.8 million in the 2016 first quarter.  Second quarter 2016 operating loss included a $14.7 million long-lived asset impairment charge related to the previous sale of our polysilicon and chlorosilanes plant in Merano, Italy, and a $1.1 million charge related to previously announced restructuring activities.  First quarter 2016 operating loss included a $1.5 million charge related to previously announced restructuring activities.

Second quarter 2016 operating cash flow was $11.1 million compared to $11.0 million in the prior quarter.  Second quarter 2016 cash from financing activities was $1.2 million, and cash used in investing activities of $13.0 million included $16.9 million of capital spending.  Funds remaining on deposit from a customer were $20.1 million.  The Company ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $79.2 million, excluding the customer deposit. 

Second quarter 2016 Adjusted EBITDA was $20.3 million, or 10.6% of sales, down $0.2 million compared to $20.5 million, or 11.2% of sales for the prior quarter.  Second quarter 2016 and first quarter 2016 Adjusted EBITDA included foreign exchange losses of $2.9 million and $1.0 million, respectively, associated with the re-measurement of intra-company balances and derivative foreign currency forward contracts.  Please see the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP financial measures and a description of Adjusted EBITDA in the attached financial tables.
