MagnaChip Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

-- Revenue Exceeds Expectations as Business Turnaround Gains Momentum --

(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, 2016.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2016 was $167.1 million, an increase of 12.8% compared to $148.1 million for the first quarter of 2016, and up 3.1% compared to $162.0 million for the second quarter of 2015. The double-digit increase in sequential revenue growth was better than expected and reflected healthy demand for the Company's Display and Power products and Foundry services. The robust growth in revenue in the second quarter also was notable, in part, because it was achieved without the benefit of approximately $9 million in revenue that was recorded in the first quarter from an underutilized 6" fab that was closed at the end of February.

Foundry Services revenue in the second quarter of 2016 was $62.3 million, a sequential increase of 3.9%, and Standard Products Group revenue was $104.6 million, a sequential increase of 18.9%, and the highest since 2012. Foundry demand continued its gradual recovery driven by new key global IC customers. AMOLED display driver IC revenue surged 73%, quarter-over-quarter, reflecting continued strong demand, primarily from smartphone makers in China. Display products for UHD televisions also showed gains in the quarter, while Power products held steady.

Gross profit was $36.7 million, or 22.0% as a percent of revenue for the second quarter of 2016. This compared with gross profit of $34.2 million, or 23.1%, for the first quarter of 2016 and $35.3 million, or 21.8%, for the second quarter of 2015. Foundry gross profit was 22.8% and Standard Products Group gross profit was 21.4% in the second quarter of 2016.

Net loss, on a GAAP basis, for the second quarter of 2016 totaled $17.8 million or $0.51 per basic share, as compared to net income of $8.1 million or $0.23 per basic and diluted share for the first quarter of 2016 and a net loss of $30.6 million or $0.90 per basic share for the second quarter of 2015. The net loss in the second quarter of 2016 included a one-time extraordinary charge of approximately $5 million. This amount included a previously announced one-time charge of approximately $4 million related to termination benefits payable under a voluntary resignation program for employees who left the company when an underutilized 6" fab was closed at the end of February. The remainder of the one-time charge pertains to transition costs related to employees who had worked in our 6' fab. 

"Our revenue in the second quarter exceeded expectations and was at the highest level since the fourth quarter of 2014," said YJ Kim, Chief Executive Officer of MagnaChip. "Customer demand was strong, especially for AMOLED display driver ICs, as well as for our specialized foundry services." Mr. Kim added, "Our results in the second quarter reflect the success of our strategy over the last two years to streamline the organization, expand our customer base, improve product execution, and leverage our strong position as a leading supplier of analog and mixed signal products and services."

Chief Financial Officer Jonathan Kim said, "We continued to exercise discipline in managing the balance sheet and preserving our cash in the second quarter, and we maintained tight control over spending while still supporting the strong growth in the business." Mr. Kim added, "As always, we continue to focus on opportunities to improve cash flow and explore ways to reduce spending."

Adjusted Net Loss, a non-GAAP financial measure, for the second quarter of 2016 totaled $1.9 million or $0.05 per basic share, compared to Adjusted Net Loss of $2.8 million or $0.08 per basic share in the first quarter of 2016, and compared to Adjusted Net Loss of $11.1 million or $0.32 per basic share in the second quarter of 2015.

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 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 in this press release.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $83.9 million at the end of the second quarter, essentially flat compared with the first quarter when taking into account the one-time effects in the second quarter of a $10 million product pre-payment from a key foundry customer.
