MagnaChip Reports First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

- Power Solutions Revenue Grew 14.6% Sequentially and 23.7% Year-over-Year

(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 first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Revenue for the first quarter of 2012 was $177.0 million, a 2.1% decrease compared to $180.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, and a 5.8% decrease compared to $187.9 million for the first quarter of 2011.

Gross profit was $49.9 million or 28.2%, as a percent of revenue, for the first quarter of 2012. This compares to gross profit of $51.5 million or 28.5 % for the fourth quarter of 2011 and $56.5 million or 30.1% for the first quarter of 2011.

"I am very pleased that since going public in March 2011, we have met our revenue and gross margin guidance each quarter for 5 consecutive quarters in what has been a very challenging period for the industry," said Sang Park, MagnaChip's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "As our Q2 guidance suggests, the first quarter of 2012 was indeed our bottom during this current semiconductor downturn. We have been seeing renewed customer order strength and wafer loading since early March as a result of increased demand from smartphone and tablet PC customers and expect this trend to continue into the second half of this year.  In anticipation of this growing demand, we have allocated additional fab capacity to support expansion."

Net income, on a GAAP basis, for the first quarter of 2012 totaled $15.3 million or $0.40 per diluted share. This compares to net income of $23.7 million or $0.61 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2011 and a net income of $22.5 million or $0.57 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2011. Net income was impacted primarily by a foreign currency gain of $11.1 million during the quarter which was primarily related to non-cash translation gains for intercompany balances that were denominated in U.S. dollars.

Adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measurement, for the first quarter of 2012 totaled $6.5 million or $0.17 per diluted share compared to $10.0 million or $0.26 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2011 and $15.7 million or $0.40 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2011.

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.

Combined cash balances (cash and cash equivalents plus restricted cash) totaled $160.6 million at the end of the first quarter of 2012, a decrease of $8.4 million from the end of the prior quarter. Cash provided from operations totaled approximately $39.9 million for the first quarter of 2012.
