STMicroelectronics Reports 2009 Second Quarter and First Half Financial Results

- Revenues of $1,993 million, up 20% sequentially - Inventory reduced by $207 million in second quarter, $391 million in first half - Net operating cash flow* turned positive to $45 million excluding M&A

GENEVA, July 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) reported financial results for the 2009 second quarter and first half ended June 27, 2009.

"ST's second quarter results reflect solid progress across several key fronts," said President and CEO Carlo Bozotti. He then added:

    --  "Revenue results of $1.99 billion for the second quarter came in
        above the high end of our internal planning target range of $1.73 to
        $1.93 billion, principally driven by stronger-than-expected performance
        across most market segments including Computer, Automotive, Telecom and
        Industrial and in China and Asia-Pacific.
    --  Bookings steadily increased through the second quarter despite a still
        uncertain environment.
    --  Our strong actions on fab loading to reduce inventory levels have led to
        a reduction in inventories of almost $400 million in just six months,
        accelerating inventory turns sequentially to 4.1 turns from 2.9 turns.
        As expected, these actions have driven our second quarter gross margin
        to an extraordinary low level.

"It is clear that the global recession has negatively impacted our financial results in the first half of 2009, but it has not slowed our efforts to develop leading-edge products. In the second quarter our pace of innovation continued as we brought to the market many next-generation products including analog controllers and power MOSFETs for power management in computer motherboards, high-voltage MDMesh power MOSFETs for switched-mode power supplies, MEMS gyroscopes, and advanced GPS solutions. Additionally, we ramped-up 55nm technology in ICs for set-top-boxes and, in wireless, we shipped in volume TD-SCDMA devices."

Second Quarter Review

ST's net revenues for the second quarter of 2009 total $1,993 million and include the complete integration of the former Ericsson Mobile Platforms business into ST-Ericsson and $18 million from the licensing of technology. Net revenues increased 20% sequentially reflecting an increase in demand across ST's served market segments, as well as in all regions, with particular strength in China and Asia Pacific. Net revenues declined in comparison to the year-ago quarter in all market segments except Telecom, and in all regions except Asia Pacific, due to business conditions.
