STMicroelectronics Reports 2012 First Quarter Financial Results

-- First quarter net revenues of $2.02 billion

(PRNewswire) — STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

First quarter net revenues decreased 8% to $2.02 billion on a sequential basis, while gross margin was 29.6%, absorbing anticipated unsaturation charges related to fab loading and a one-time unexpected charge resulting from an arbitration award.

President and CEO Carlo Bozotti commented, "ST's wholly-owned businesses in the first quarter posted a sequential decrease of 3%, better than historical seasonality, benefiting from growth in the Automotive segment and the Analog, MEMS and Microcontrollers sector.

"Our Wireless segment losses weighed heavily on our quarterly results again. However, ST-Ericsson has announced today its new strategic direction and renewed business model with a key objective to significantly reduce its operating losses throughout 2012 as it moves towards leadership and improved financial returns.

"In total, first quarter activity levels across ST's product portfolio tracked closely to our expectations, with net revenues near the mid-point of our business outlook. Similarly, gross margin evolution was consistent with our continued focus on inventory management and in the first quarter gross margin absorbed approximately 600 basis points of unsaturation charges and a one-time unexpected charge resulting from an arbitration award. The effort on inventory reduction and prudent capital management led to a quarter on quarter increase in free cash flow and a further improvement in ST's financial position which stood at $1.27 billion."*
