AMIS Holdings, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2007 Financial Results

POCATELLO, Idaho—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 29, 2008— AMIS Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMIS), parent company of AMI Semiconductor, a leader in the design and manufacture of integrated mixed-signal solutions, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2007.

Financial Results

Fourth quarter 2007 revenue was $153.8 million, representing a sequential decline of less than one percent. Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2007 was 46.0 percent, up 200 basis points sequentially and 130 basis points year over year. On a non-GAAP basis, gross margin for the fourth quarter was 46.2 percent, up 200 basis points sequentially and 130 basis points compared to the same period in 2006. Non-GAAP gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2007 and 2006 excludes stock-based compensation expense.

Operating margin was 10.1 percent in the fourth quarter 2007, up 180 basis points sequentially, and 30 basis points year over year. On a non-GAAP basis, operating margin for the fourth quarter of 2007 was 16.8 percent, up 110 basis points both sequentially and year over year. The sequential increase in non-GAAP operating margin was driven by improved gross margins, savings realized from restructuring initiatives during the first half of 2007, and spending controls during the fourth quarter. Non-GAAP operating margin for the fourth quarter of 2007 and 2006 excludes amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, restructuring and impairment charges and stock-based compensation expense. In addition, fourth quarter 2007 non-GAAP operating margin excludes approximately $1.3 million of fees associated with the Audit Committee accounting review.

Net income for fourth quarter 2007 was $10.0 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, which compares to net income of $12.1 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the same period in 2006. Non-GAAP net income for fourth quarter 2007 was $18.3 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $19.1 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in fourth quarter 2006. Fourth quarter 2007 and 2006 non-GAAP net income exclude amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, restructuring and impairment charges and stock-based compensation expense, net of taxes. In addition, fourth quarter 2007 non-GAAP net income also excludes $0.8 million in fees associated with the Audit Committee accounting review and $0.6 million for acquisition expenses related to the previously announced pending merger with ON Semiconductor, both net of taxes.

Revenue for 2007 was $615.8 million, an increase of two percent over 2006. Net income for 2007 was $29.4 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, compared to $37.4 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, in 2006. Non-GAAP net income for 2007 was $65.0 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $63.5 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, in 2006. Full year 2007 and 2006 non-GAAP net income excludes amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, restructuring and impairment charges, and stock-based compensation expense, net of taxes. Non-GAAP net income for 2007 also excludes $0.5 million for charges related to the secondary offering conducted in the first quarter, $0.8 million in fees associated with the Audit Committee accounting review, and $0.6 million for the previously identified acquisition related expenses, all net of tax effects.

The Company generated operating cash flow during the quarter of $38.7 million and $87.5 million during the full year 2007. Cash at the end of the quarter was $117.4 million, an increase of $28.1 million sequentially, due primarily to improved working capital management. Capital expenditures during fourth quarter 2007 were $9.0 million, bringing full year capital expenditures to $50.0 million or approximately eight percent of revenue.

"I am pleased that we completed 2007 with fourth quarter non-GAAP gross margins of over 46 percent, which exceeded our target set in early June," stated Christine King, chief executive officer. "This along with aggressive expense control during the fourth quarter enhanced non-GAAP operating leverage to the highest operating margin in over two years at nearly 17 percent. We also achieved record design wins during the year and are entering 2008 with our most robust design pipeline ever. In addition, during 2007 we successfully generated over $120 million in revenue from new products introduced during the year."

Business Outlook

-- Revenue is expected to be between $145 million and $150 million,

-- Gross margin is expected to be roughly flat sequentially,

-- GAAP diluted earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $0.07 to $0.10. Excluding amortization of acquisition related intangibles, restructuring and impairment charges, stock-based compensation expense and any acquisition related expenses, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $0.15 to $0.17.
