Amkor Technology Reports Financial Results for the First Quarter 2012

Amkor Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMKR), a leading provider of semiconductor packaging and test services, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012, with net sales of $655 million, net income of $12 million, and earnings per diluted share of $0.06. Net income includes a charge of $7 million (of which $5 million was recorded in cost of sales and $2 million in selling, general and administrative expenses), and earnings per diluted share includes a charge of $0.03, for restructuring costs associated with reductions in our workforce in Japan.

“First quarter results came in at the high end of our expectations,” said Ken Joyce, Amkor's president and chief executive officer. “Our strong position in wireless communications continues to drive our business and we saw notable improvement in our test services segment. We also benefited from additional leadframe packaging business from some customers whose supply chains were disrupted by the flooding in Thailand during the fourth quarter of 2011.”

Selected financial information for the first quarter 2012 is as follows:

  • Net Sales: $655 million, down 4% from $684 million in the prior quarter, and down 1% from $665 million in the first quarter of 2011
  • Gross Margin: 16%, compared to 16% in the prior quarter, and 19% in the first quarter of 2011
  • Net Income: $12 million, down from $25 million in the prior quarter, and down from $25 million in the first quarter of 2011
  • Earnings Per Diluted Share: $0.06, down from $0.11 in the prior quarter, and down from $0.10 in the first quarter of 2011

“Capital additions were $124 million during the first quarter, primarily in support of specific business for customers in smartphones and tablets,” said Joanne Solomon, Amkor's executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Amkor's Board of Directors previously authorized $300 million for the repurchase of our common stock; $150 million in August 2011 and $150 million in February 2012. During the first quarter 2012 the company repurchased 1.0 million shares at a purchase price of $4.5 million, for a total of 29.6 million shares at a purchase price of $133.4 million since the program commenced.

Cash and cash equivalents were $381 million, and net debt was $974 million, at March 31, 2012.

Selected operating data for the first quarter 2012 is included in a section below before the financial statements.

Business Outlook

Based upon the currently available information, we have the following expectations for the second quarter 2012:

  • Net sales of $670 million to $700 million, up 2% to 7% from the prior quarter
  • Gross margin of 16% to 18%
  • Net income of $17 million to $36 million, or $0.08 to $0.16 per diluted share
  • Capital additions of around $200 million for the second quarter, and around $550 million for the full year

“We expect solid growth in the second half of 2012,” noted Joyce. “Several of our major customers that sell into smartphones and tablets have substantially increased their demand forecasts with us and we are raising our estimate of 2012 capital additions to around $550 million to meet these specific new opportunities. However, our sales and capital additions may vary depending on a number of factors including the supply of 28 nanometer wafers for some of our customers.”

* We define free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment. Free cash flow is not defined by U.S. GAAP. We believe free cash flow to be relevant and useful information to our investors because it provides them with additional information in assessing our liquidity, capital resources and financial operating results. Our management uses free cash flow in evaluating our liquidity, our ability to service debt and our ability to fund capital additions. However, free cash flow has certain limitations, including that it does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures since other, non-discretionary expenditures, such as mandatory debt service, are not deducted from the measure. The amount of mandatory versus discretionary expenditures can vary significantly between periods.
This measure should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, other measures of liquidity or financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, such as net cash provided by operating activities. Furthermore, our definition of free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
** Amkor's Board of Directors previously authorized $300 million for the repurchase of our common stock; $150 million in August 2011 and $150 million in February 2012. During the first quarter, we repurchased 1.0 million shares of common stock for a purchase price of $4.5 million. As of March 31, 2012, we had repurchased a total of 29.6 million shares under the stock repurchase program for a purchase price of $133.4 million.

Silicones Meet the Needs of the Electronics Industry

Remarkable silicones. The combination of their unique ability to maintain physical properties across a wide range of temperature, humidity, and frequency--combined with their flexibility--set them apart. Silicone based adhesives, sealants, potting and encapsulation compounds are used in hundreds of consumer, business, medical, and military electronic systems. In this white paper, learn what makes silicones different from other organic polymers, why their properties remain stable across different temperatures, and how they have played a major role in the rapid innovation of the electronics industry.May 12, 2015

ASIC Design Made Cost Effective with Low Cost Tools and Masks

For smaller projects or companies with modest design budgets, ASIC design is becoming a viable option due to low cost design tools and easy access to flexible, mature IC processes. This is especially compelling for developing mixed-signal ASICs for cost-sensitive sensor applications for the Internet of things (IoT). This paper discusses how costs and risks can be reduced using multi-project wafer services, coupled with affordable design tools for developing mixed-signal ASICs. April 13, 2015

High-Performance Analog and RF Circuit Simulation

The research group led by Professor Peter Kinget at the Columbia University Integrated Systems Laboratory (CISL) focuses on cutting edge analog and RF circuit design using digital nanoscale CMOS processes. Key challenges in the design of these circuits include block-level characterization and full-circuit verification. This paper highlights these verification challenges by discussing the results of a 2.2 GHz PLL LC-VCO, a 12-bit pipeline ADC, and an ultra-wideband transceiver.March 13, 2015

Understanding Defects

July 2015 (Date and time TBD)

Yield improvement and production engineers working on today's ICs encounter many challenges as defects affecting device operation go undetected by traditional in-line techniques. Electrical Failure Analysis (EFA) is a suite of techniques that helps the modern day fab increase yields by isolating faults to areas small enough for Physical Failure Analysis (PFA). In this Webinar, we showcase a few of the proven EFA fault isolation techniques and describe how EFA helps to characterize the underlying defects.

Lock-in Thermography for Advanced Assembly Qualification

August 2015 (Date and time TBD)

Increasing IoT business opportunities drive a need for new packaging techniques such as FOWLP, Embedded Component Packaging, etc. Such new assembly techniques allow more components and functionality to be integrated into an ever decreasing package space. In parallel the faster product cycle drives the need for faster production ramp to stay competitive. All these challenges highlight the need for a better methodology to determine root cause of assembly-related defects during the new package process qualification process. We will demonstrate a totally non-destructive fault localization method based on a lock-in thermography with examples in these areas.
