MagnaChip Reports Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results

- Reports Revenue of $162.0 Million and Total Gross Profit of 21.8%

(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, 2015.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2015 was $162.0 million, a 1.7% decline compared to $164.9 million for the first quarter of 2015, and down 5.8% compared to $172.1 million for the second quarter of 2014. Semiconductor Manufacturing Services (Foundry) revenue in the second quarter of 2015 was $79.0 million, Display Solutions revenue was $48.9 million and Power Solutions revenue was $34.0 million.

Gross profit was $35.3 million, or 21.8% as a percent of revenue, for the second quarter of 2015. This compares to gross profit of $35.0 million, or 21.2%, for the first quarter of 2015 and $35.5 million, or 20.6%, for the second quarter of 2014. Gross profit improvement stemmed from improved product mix and cost savings activities. Aside from reporting its total gross profit, beginning with this second quarter, MagnaChip is now also reporting the gross profit for its Foundry business segment, and its new Standard Products Group business segment, which includes the Display Solutions and Power Solutions business lines. In the second quarter of 2015, Foundry gross profit was 21.8% and Standard Products Group gross profit was 21.7%.

Net loss, on a GAAP basis, for the second quarter of 2015 totaled $30.6 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $20.0 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2015 and net income of $15.0 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014. Net loss was impacted primarily by lower revenue and gross profit as well as by non-cash foreign currency translation loss.

"Revenue in the second quarter was in line with our guidance and gross profit was higher than expected, but the near-term foundry business remains weak and we continue to face major challenges for the remainder of the year," said YJ Kim, Chief Executive Officer. "We have identified new foundry opportunities to broaden our customer base and position MagnaChip for longer-term growth, but these engagements typically take several quarters to ramp up."

In commenting on MagnaChip's previously announced plan to implement a comprehensive cost reduction program, Chief Financial Officer Jonathan Kim said, "Given the current business outlook, we have already reduced our spending by approximately $20 million in the first half of 2015.  We are moving to reduce total normalized spending by over $40 million in 2015 and have launched a comprehensive review to assess the feasibility of further cost reductions in 2016."

Adjusted net loss, a non-GAAP measurement, for the second quarter of 2015 totaled $11.1 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, compared to an adjusted net loss of $9.6 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2015 and compared to an adjusted net loss of $14.1 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014.

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.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $72.7 million at the end of the second quarter of 2015, a decrease of $18.7 million from the end of the prior quarter.

As disclosed in MagnaChip's 2015 proxy statement, the Board of Directors has established a Strategic Review Committee to assist the Board in reviewing, considering and evaluating strategic alternatives that may be available to MagnaChip.  MagnaChip has engaged Barclays to serve as its financial adviser in connection with the strategic review process.  No decision has been made to enter into a transaction at this time and MagnaChip can offer no assurance that it will enter into any transaction in the future.  MagnaChip does not intend to disclose further developments unless and until such time as its Board of Directors has approved a specific course of action, or it otherwise deems further disclosure is appropriate or required.
