Fourth Quarter Results


Seoul, South Korea, January 27, 2006 – MagnaChip Semiconductor today announced results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2005.


Net revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2005 was $245.2 million, compared to $243.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2004.


Gross margin was $60.4 million or 24.6% of revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2005, compared to $39.1 million or 16.1% of revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2004.


Operating expenses were $88.5 million in the fourth quarter or 36.1% of net revenue compared to $51.8 million or 21.3% of net revenue during the fourth quarter of 2004. The increase of $36.7 million from the prior year quarter was primarily due to one time charges of $27.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2005, which included tangible and intangible asset impairment and restructuring charges related to a divesture of our Application Processor business.


Operating loss was $28.1 million during the quarter compared to an operating loss of $12.7 million in the prior year quarter.


Net interest expense for the fourth quarter was $14.4 million compared to $16.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2004.


Net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2005 was $22.9 million compared to a net loss of $5.8 million in the prior year quarter.


Youm Huh, President and CEO of MagnaChip Semiconductor, commented, “We marked our first year anniversary as an independent company this quarter. This was an important year for us, in which we accomplished a great deal in a short period of time thanks to the efforts of all of our employees. In addition to strengthening our corporate structure with several key hires and implementing stronger internal controls, we have successfully established MagnaChip as a leading brand with customers worldwide. We are pleased with our accomplishments and achieved significant strategic milestones in establishing our company to succeed in our focused end markets:


    We completed two acquisitions this year that are both delivering strategic products to our customers today, improving our growth prospects in the future


    Our Display Solutions business reached record unit volumes in support of the high growth in digital television



Our Imaging Solutions business released new 3.2 mega pixel and 2 mega pixel products this quarter, putting us firmly back on our technology roadmap for this


business and positioning us to fulfill our customers 2006 requirements for camera technology for the mobile phone market, and


    MagnaChip’s Semiconductor Manufacturing Services business has defined a specialty foundry strategy that is uniquely serving the needs for analog, mixed signal, high voltage, power and embedded memory wafer foundry services.”


Robert Krakauer, EVP of Strategic Operations and CFO of MagnaChip Semiconductor, said, “Capital spending was $23 million for the quarter, up from prior quarters, but lower than the year ago period and below our plan for the full year 2005. We continue to strategically manage the timing of investments to meet our operational needs. Our balance of cash and cash equivalents increased to $86.6 million at the end of the fourth quarter. While our achievement of aggressive working capital improvement goals for the quarter was less than forecasted, we are pleased with the strong cash generation of our business.”


Mr. Krakauer, continued, “We signed an agreement this quarter to sell our Applications Processor business to an entity formed by GreenChips Co. Ltd., a semiconductor solution provider, which completes the strategic repositioning and efforts to focus our business. By maintaining a 10% equity stake in the new entity, we will continue to benefit from future upside expected from the combination of GreenChips and MagnaChip’s Application Processor businesses. We are also pleased that MagnaChip will continue to provide foundry services to the new entity. We now have our goals set on the future growth of our three core product groups and on continuing to create innovative solutions for customers in these markets.”

Use of Non-US GAAP Financial Information


To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a US GAAP basis, MagnaChip Semiconductor uses 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.
