SEOUL, South Korea, Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: MX) ("MagnaChip" or the "Company") today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2020.

"Q3 represented a pivotal chapter of MagnaChip as we successfully closed the sale of the Foundry business and Fab 4 that ultimately resulted in MagnaChip becoming a pure-play Products company with a very healthy balance sheet. Across the company, we are making well-planned moves to realign our resources, sharpen our R&D focus on key priority areas, and improve our operational efficiency," said YJ Kim, MagnaChip's chief executive officer. "During the third quarter, we also delivered solid performance with a 5% sequential revenue growth and a healthy bottom line despite the market disruptions caused by pandemic and geopolitical tension."

"More importantly, the upswing in demand which began in July has continued into the fourth quarter thus far.  We are encouraged by the robust growth opportunities ahead of us, which creates a stronger foundation for profitable growth. We continue to push the envelope on enhancing our competitive position through continuous technology advancement, addressable market expansion and strategic customer engagements."

(1) Following the consummation of the sale of the Foundry Services Group business and Fab 4, and for a period up to three years, the Company will provide transitional foundry services to the buyer for Foundry products manufactured in the Company's fabrication facility located in Gumi ("Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services"). Management believes that disclosing revenue of the Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services separately from the standard products business allows investors to better understand the results of our core standard products display solutions and power solutions businesses.

(2) In the third quarter, total net income of $273.0 million included income from discontinued operations, net of tax, of $264.5 million, primarily attributable to the recognition of $287.1 million as gain on sale of the Foundry Services Group and Fab 4.

(3) Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed in conjunction with GAAP results, can provide a meaningful understanding of the factors and trends affecting MagnaChip's business and operations and assist in evaluating our core operating performance. However, such non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should not be considered as a substitute for net income from continuing operations 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 in this press release.

Q4 2020 financial guidance

The COVID-19 global pandemic is still evolving and continues to reduce our forward visibility. While actual results may vary, MagnaChip currently anticipates for Q4 2020:

  • Revenue to be in the range of $128 million to $136 million, which represents approximately 3% to 9% sequential growth, including $10 million to $11 million of the Transitional Fab 3 Foundry Services.
  • Gross profit margin to be in the range of 25% to 27%.

We present Adjusted Operating Income as supplemental measures of our performance. We define Adjusted Operating Income for the periods indicated as operating income adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense, (ii) Inventory reserve related to Huawei, (iii) Expenses related to Fab 3 power outage and (iv) Others. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, inventory reserve related to Huawei eliminates a $2,331 thousand excess and obsolete inventory charge that we recorded in relation to the US Government's export restrictions on Huawei. During the same periods, expenses related to Fab 3 power outage eliminate $1,168 thousand related to the write-off of the damaged work in process wafers and charges for facility recovery. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, others primarily eliminates non-recurring professional fees and expenses incurred in connection with certain treasury and finance initiatives incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, others eliminates a $0.6 million legal settlement charge related to dispute with a prior customer and a legal expense related to the indemnification of a former employee, which was borne by us under a negotiated separation agreement during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income as supplemental measures of our performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA for the periods indicated as EBITDA (as defined below), adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense, (ii) Foreign currency loss (gain), net, (iii) Derivative valuation loss (gain), net, (iv) Loss on early extinguishment of long-term borrowings, net, (v) Inventory reserve related to Huawei, (vi) Expenses related to Fab 3 power outage and (vii) Others. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, inventory reserve related to Huawei eliminates a $2,331 thousand excess and obsolete inventory charge that we recorded in relation to the US Government's export restrictions on Huawei. During the same periods, expenses related to Fab 3 power outage eliminate $1,168 thousand related to the write-off of the damaged work in process wafers and charges for facility recovery. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, others primarily eliminates non-recurring professional fees and expenses incurred in connection with certain treasury and finance initiatives incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, others eliminates a $0.6 million legal settlement charge related to dispute with a prior customer and a legal expense related to the indemnification of a former employee, which was borne by us under a negotiated separation agreement during the three months ended March 31, 2019. EBITDA for the periods indicated is defined as Income (loss) from continuing operations before interest expense, net, income tax expense (benefit) and depreciation and amortization.

We prepare Adjusted Net Income by adjusting income (loss) from continuing operations to eliminate the impact of a number of non-cash expenses and other items that may be either one time or recurring that we do not consider to be indicative of our core ongoing operating performance. We believe that Adjusted Net Income is particularly useful because it reflects the impact of our asset base and capital structure on our operating performance. We define Adjusted Net Income for the periods as income (loss) from continuing operations, adjusted to exclude (i) Equity-based compensation expense, (ii) Foreign currency loss (gain), net, (iii) Derivative valuation loss (gain), net, (iv) Loss on early extinguishment of long-term borrowings, net, (v) Inventory reserve related to Huawei, (vi) Expenses related to Fab 3 power outage and (vii) Others. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, inventory reserve related to Huawei eliminates a $2,331 thousand excess and obsolete inventory charge that we recorded in relation to the US Government's export restrictions on Huawei.
