STMicroelectronics Reports 2011 Second Quarter and First Half Financial Results

-- Second quarter net revenues up 1.3% sequentially to $2.57 billion

(PRNewswire) — STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) reported financial results for the second quarter and first half ended July 2, 2011.

President and CEO Carlo Bozotti commented, "Our second quarter net revenues and gross margin results were substantially in line with our business outlook, with sales growth driven by a solid performance from Automotive.

"As anticipated, in this quarter we experienced headwinds related to the situation in Japan and currency rates, while continuing to face ST-Ericsson's ongoing transition. Additionally, in June, we saw weaker demand and a much weaker than planned outlook for wireless products from a major customer and we saw signs of softening demand in some of our businesses, such as digital consumer products and microcontrollers.

"Looking at the 2011 first half, we have made measurable progress in advancing our product portfolio, clearly gaining share as net revenues from our wholly-owned businesses increased 17% compared to the year-ago period. Our product portfolio is gaining further traction, with significant design wins in the growth application areas we are targeting: energy management and savings, trust and data security, healthcare and wellness as well as smart consumer devices."

Second Quarter Review

ST's net revenues increased 1.3% on a sequential basis, with regional growth led by the Americas with sales up 8%. On a year-over-year basis, ST's net revenues increased 1.4%, led by the Americas and Greater China-South Asia with growth rates of 6% and 5%, respectively. Sequential net revenue performance was driven by better than expected results in Automotive, Consumer, Computer, Communication Infrastructure (ACCI), specifically Automotive and Imaging. Analog, MEMS and Microcontrollers (AMM) was slightly below expectations mainly due to customer demand changes and adjustments linked to the supply-chain disruption as a result of the crisis in Japan. Power Discrete Products (PDP), as well as ST-Ericsson, were in line with expectations and were principally negatively impacted by reduced demand at a major customer.
