Third Quarter Results


Seoul, South Korea, October 27, 2005 – MagnaChip Semiconductor today announced results for the third quarter ended October 2, 2005.


Net revenue on a US generally accepted accounting principle (GAAP) basis for the three months ended October 2, 2005 was $243.1 million, compared to $236.0 million in the second quarter of 2005.


Gross margin was $61.9 million or 25.5% of revenue for the quarter ended October 2, 2005, compared to $60.4 million or 25.6% of revenue for the quarter ended July 3, 2005.


Operating expenses on a GAAP basis were $55.2 million in the third quarter or 22.7% of net revenue compared to $68.7 million or 29.1% of net revenue during the second quarter of 2005. The decrease of $13.5 million or 19.7% from the prior quarter is due primarily to one time charges of $11.3 million during the second quarter, which included asset impairment of certain manufacturing equipment and amortization of intangible assets specifically related to the acquisition of IC Media Corporation.


Operating income on a GAAP basis was $6.7 million compared to an operating loss of $8.3 million in the second quarter.


Net interest expense for the third quarter was $14.9 million compared to $14.0 million in the second quarter.


Net loss for the three months ended October 2, 2005 was $13.2 million, an improvement of $20.3 million or 60.6% from a net loss of $33.5 million in the preceding quarter.


Youm Huh, President and CEO of MagnaChip Semiconductor, commented, “We are encouraged by our continued progress during the third quarter. Our revenue came in as expected, due to healthy demand, as well as gains in our core strategic markets. Importantly, this was our first quarter of operating profit on a GAAP basis and our second on a non-GAAP basis. Additionally, during the third quarter we launched some exciting new technologies, which we expect will further differentiate us with customers.”


Robert Krakauer, Executive Vice President of Strategic Operations and CFO of MagnaChip Semiconductor, said, “A more stable pricing environment positively benefited MagnaChip along with continued operational efficiencies and our cost containment initiatives. Capital spending was $22 million for the quarter, up from prior quarters, but under our plan for the year, as we strategically manage the timing of investments to meet our operational needs. Importantly, despite the higher capital spending, we were able to increase our balance of cash and short-term investments by $26.2 million to $71.0 million at the end of the third quarter.”


Dr. Huh, concluded, “We have accomplished a great deal over the last 12 months to position MagnaChip in the right markets with the right operating structure to maximize profitability. We have put in place strong general managers to lead our Display Solutions, Imaging Solutions and Semiconductor Manufacturing Services strategic business units and have set aggressive goals for each unit. Finally, volumes typically increase going into the holiday season as customers ramp production of small consumer goods. We are working closely with our customers to monitor capacity requirements, and we will continue to optimize our inventory management. Based on our current business level we expect revenue growth to be flat in the fourth quarter verses the third quarter.”

Use of Non-US GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a US GAAP basis, MagnaChip Semiconductor uses a non-US GAAP measures of gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss), that are US GAAP gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss) adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses or gains, referred to as special items. Non-US GAAP adjusted gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss) measure give an indication of our baseline performance before other charges that are considered by management to be outside of our core operating results. In addition, our non-US GAAP adjusted measure of gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss) are among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss) prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America
