"We remain pleased with our results year-long and certainly with performance to our guidance in the third quarter," stated Mr. Jordan Wu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Himax. "We have been able to sustain double-digit growth in our small and medium-sized driver and non-driver IC businesses year-over-year while steadily maintaining our large panel driver IC market share, though this market has been weak reflecting the continued slump of global demand. The diversification of our customer base and development of new products have both improved our product mix and increased our gross margins. As we go through the fourth quarter and into the next year, we expect these trends to continue."

The third quarter revenues of $192.8 million represented a 1.3% increase from $190.4 million in the third quarter of 2012 and a 6.8% decrease from $207.0 million in the previous quarter of this year. Notwithstanding the sequential decline, the third quarter revenues came in at the high end of the guidance mainly driven by better-than-expected sales of China smartphone market and also non-driver products.

Revenues from large panel display drivers were $57.7 million, down 24.7% from a year ago and down 10.3% from the second quarter of 2013, accounting for 29.9% of total revenues. The decrease was mainly a result of the global weakening demands of TV, laptop and monitor.

Sales for small and medium-sized drivers came in at $100.5 million, up 15.1% from the same period last year and down 9.4% sequentially, accounting for 52.1% of total revenues. The slowdown of smartphone and tablet markets was caused primarily by China market's overall inventory correction. However, the segment still delivered a solid year over year growth of 15.1%, driven by the sheer volume growth of and sales to the smartphone, tablet and automotive display applications.

Revenues from Himax's non-driver businesses were $34.6 million, up30.5% from the same period last year and up 9.2% sequentially. Non-driver product revenues accounted for 18.0% of total revenues.The Company's non-driver product sales reached another record high in terms of both absolute value and percentage of total revenues. CMOS image sensors, video SOCs, touch panel controllers, power management ICs, LED drivers, and LCOS microdisplay were the main contributors to the growth of non-driver product segment.

Gross margins were 25.3% for the three months ended September 30, 2013, up 200 basis points from 23.3% in the third quarter of 2012 and up 70 basis points from 24.6% in the second quarter of 2013. The third quarter gross margin represents the highest quarterly gross margin for Himax since the third quarter of 2008. The trend in its margin expansion is a direct result of improved product mix.

Third quarter 2013 GAAP operating expenses were $34.3 million, up 10.1% from a year ago and up 26.1% from the previous quarter. The significant sequential increase was caused by the $7.8 million 2013 RSU grant the Company has traditionally expensed in the third quarter. Excluding the RSU charge, its third quarter operating expenses were $26.5 million, up 6.4% from the same quarter 2012 and down 2.7% from the previous quarter. The increase from the previous year was related to higher salary expenses for additional headcount and annual salary raise which took place during the middle of the year. Himax reported earlier that it intended to expand its R&D team to capture the increasing business opportunities.

GAAP operating income in the third quarter of 2013 was $14.4 million, or 7.5% of sales, up $1.3 million or 9.7%, compared to the same period last year and down $9.3 million or 39.2% from the previous quarter. The sequential decline was mainly a result of lower revenues and the expense from the $7.8 million 2013 RSU charge in the third quarter which accounted for 4.0% of sales. In comparison, non-GAAP operating income for the third quarter of 2013 was $23.6 million, or 12.2% of sales, up $3.1 million or 15.1%, compared to the same period last year and down $1.3 million or 5.4% from the previous quarter.

Reported GAAP net income was $12.3 million, or 7.2 cents per diluted ADS, for the third quarter of 2013 up from $10.4 million, or 6.1 cents per diluted ADS, in the corresponding quarter a year ago, and down from $19.4 million, or 11.2 cents per diluted ADS, in the previous quarter. GAAP net income grew 17.9% year over year and declined 36.6% from the previous quarter. The sequentially decline was mainly due to the $7.8 million 2013 RSU charge in the third quarter. GAAP EPS per diluted ADS grew 16.7% from the same period last year and declined 36.4% over the previous quarter.

Non-GAAP net income in the third quarter was $19.3 million, or 11.3 cents per diluted ADS, up from $16.5 million, or 9.7 cents per diluted ADS, for the same period last year, and down from $20.1 million, or 11.7 cents per diluted ADS, in the previous quarter. Non-GAAP EPS in the third quarter came in at the high end of the guidance. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2013 grew 17.2% year over year and declined 3.8% as compared to the previous quarter. The sequential decline was a result of lower revenues in the third quarter. Non-GAAP EPS per diluted ADS grew 16.0% from the same period last year and declined 3.6% over the previous quarter.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

The Company had $133.9 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities available for sale on September 30, 2013, compared to $147.1 million on June 30, 2013 and $89.0 million for the same time last year. The Company made a cash payment for RSU of $7.8 million and a cash dividend of $42.4 million during the quarter. On top of the above cash position, restricted cash was $115.0 million on September 30, 2013 compared to $73.0 million on September 30, 2012 and $74.1 million on June 30, 2012. The restricted cash is mainly used to guarantee the Company's short term loan for the same amount. Himax continues to maintain a very strong balance sheet with no debt.

Inventories as of September 30, 2013 were $159.6 million, up from $128.3 million a year ago and up from $142.9 million a quarter ago. The higher inventory was a result of stock build-up due to temporary business slowdown in the third quarter and the expected increase of smartphone driver shipment during the fourth quarter. Accounts receivable were $202.2 million on September 30, 2013 as compared to $219.2 million on June 30, 2013 and $218.3 million a year ago. Day Sales Outstanding ("DSO") was 96 days at end of third quarter 2013 versus 109 days in the third quarter of 2012 and 104 days at end of the last quarter.

Net cash inflow from operating activities for the third quarter of 2013 was $27.4 million as compared to cash outflow of $7.1 million for the third quarter of 2012 and cash outflow of $2.7 million for the second quarter of 2013. Net cash inflow from operating activities for the first nine months of 2013 was $54.2 million as compared to an outflow of $0.3 million for the same period of 2012.

The Company invested $3.8 million on capital expenditures in the third quarter versus $1.7 million a year ago and $6.0 million last quarter. The capital expenditure in the third quarter consisted mainly of purchases of in-house testers for driver IC, IT store equipments and LCOS and MEMS manufacturing equipments. While it outsources the majority of its driver IC testing, the Company has always maintained a certain level of in-house testing facility for the purpose of both R&D and mass production. Total capital expenditures for the first nine months of 2013 were $14.5 million versus $4.4 million a year ago.

Share Buyback Update

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had 170.5 million ADS equivalents outstanding, compared to 169.6 million at the end of last quarter.

November 2013 Non-Deal Road Show

Ms. Jackie Chang, CFO and Ms. Penny Lin, IR Director will host investor meetings and attend an investor conference in Hong Kong and Singapore from November 18th to November 22th. If you are interested in meeting with the Company, please contact Himax's US or Taiwan based investor relations contact at the numbers below.

Business Updates

The operating environment in the third quarter was marked by low visibility as the global economy remained soft and concerns for excessive inventory loomed over China's Tier 2, or what is also known as the "white-box" market. The Company therefore provided conservative guidance and is pleased that its revenues came in at the higher end of its guided range and gross margin exceeded the guidance.

The Company anticipates its large panel drivers in Q4 in line with poor overall market sentiment for large panel demands to decline by double-digit, dragging down its overall fourth quarter growth. The weakness is a reflection of the continued slump of global demand for TVs, laptops and monitors. This was made worse bythe termination of China's TV subsidy program in May. However, Himax does see long-term growth prospect in itslarge panel driver business. China is the world's largest TV market and the country has continued to grow its large panel capacity. In addition, consumers' TV demand is trending towards larger screen sizes and higher resolution. The Company also believes its efforts to penetrate into other non-China large panel customers will start to bring in meaningful results next year.

The small and medium-sized panel driver business remains a focus in Himax's business. The Company is in a strong position in the smartphone sector with leading technologies, competitive products and solid end-customer base including first-tier international and Chinese end-user brands as well as the fast growing China white-box market. The growth momentum of its smartphone driver was dampened by the slowdown in the China market in early third quarter, but it is expected to recover during the fourth quarter due to increasing demands from the Company's Korean and Chinese end-customers. In addition to volume growth, the Company continues to benefit from the industry trend toward higher resolution displays as mentioned in its past few earnings calls. It expects the smartphone sector to experience double digit growth in Q4 and the growth momentum to continue into next year, driven by strong demand from both international and China markets.

Among small and medium-sized panel applications, the Company also sees tablet and automotive displays growing strongly so far this year. The Company enjoys a solid customer base in both markets.In tablet market, it has a thorough coverage in both international brands and the low-cost white-box market.It also commands a leading market share in displays used in automotives. It expects the revenues from these two applications to remain flat sequentially in the fourth quarter. With further design-wins in the pipeline, the Company expects these applications to continue to contribute to its long-term growth.

Himax's non-driver business provides the most exciting long-term growth prospect. CMOS images sensors' third quarter sales were supported by shipments of Himax's 1 mega-pixel sensor for tier-one laptop customers and growing demand for its 2 and 5 mega-pixel sensors from smartphone and tablet makers. The Company will launch a new 8 mega-pixel sensor this quarter targeting higher-end smartphone and tablet markets. The release of this product positions Himax as the pioneer of high-end image sensors among Taiwanese and Chinese suppliers, advancing it to one of the leaders in the world market. Besides, having been through a few quarters of learning curve, the Company resumed growth of touch panel controllers during the third quarter as it made new shipments to handset customers in China and a leading brand customer for several of their tablet projects. It expects to gain more new design-wins and break into a new leading smartphone brand customer in the fourth quarter. By expanding its customer base in smartphone and tablet applications and also its product offering to Win 8 laptop application, Himax believes touch panel controller is a long-term growth engine. Moreover, leveraging the track record of its successful execution in the ASIC projects awarded last year, Himax has won new projects from both existing and new customers this year. It also started to make shipment for one of the ASICs it developed for a customer back in 2012 and expects to see more such shipments starting next year.

Additionally, Google's investment in Himax Display, its LCOS subsidiary, which Himax announced on July 22nd, 2013, was successfully closed in October. Google now becomes a 6.3% shareholder of Himax Display. On the business front, the Company had new design-wins from multiple top-tier customers for new head-mounted display ("HMD") projects and also continued to make early stage shipment for certain customers' pilot run production in the third quarter. In addition to HMD, it is also working with numerous partners to create products targeting a wide range of applications. The Company will continue to execute its strategy to maintain global leadership in microdisplay technology by working with multiple customers for multiple applications. Himax believes its LCOS microdisplay business remains one of the most important areas for its future growth.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Guidance

While the fourth quarter is traditionally a low season, the Company is providing the following financial guidance for the fourth quarter of 2013:

Net Revenues: To be around flat or slightly down, as compared to the third quarter of 2013
Gross Margin: To be around flat to slightly down from the third quarter of 2013
GAAP EPS: 7.5 to 9.5 cents per diluted ADS, as compared to 8.6 cents of Q4 2012
Non GAAP EPS(2): 8.1 to 10.1 cents per diluted ADS, as compared to 9.2 cents of Q4 2012
Full Year GAAP EPS(1): 34.1 to 36.1 cents per diluted ADS, as compared to 30.2 cents in 2012
Full Year Non GAAP EPS(2): 40.0 to 41.8 cents per diluted ADS, as compared to 35.3 cents in 2012
(1) GAAP earnings per diluted ADS guidance includes Himax's 2013 grant of restricted share units, or RSUs, at the end of September 2013
(2) Non-GAAP EPS excludes share-based compensation and acquisition-related charges

The Company would like to highlight a couple items related to the expenses for the quarter. It has pointed out in the last few earnings calls that, in order to capture the increasing business opportunities, its expenses for this year would increase from those of the past few years, when it managed to maintain its expenses at a rather stable level. This year's expense increase was due mainly to the expansion of R&D teams and the higher development costs associated with the larger team. The Company expects the fourth quarter operating expenses to be the highest among all quarters of the year as certain new high-end product tape-outs are taking place within the quarter in both driver and non-driver areas.

Its fourth quarter EPS guidance has taken into account an additional $1 million, or 0.6 cent per diluted ADS, of income tax charge to reflect the NT dollar depreciation against the US dollar so far this year. The adjusted amount is made based on today's exchange rate but the final outcome will depend on the actual exchange rate at the end of the year. While the exchange rate has little effect on its margins and operating results as the Company keeps its books in US dollar which is also its functional currency in literally all of its buy and sale activities, the exchange rate does have some impact on the Company's effective US GAAP income tax rate because it pays the super majority of its taxes in Taiwan where the tax authorities determine its taxation based on its NT dollar dominated ROC GAAP accounting. In general, as NT dollar depreciates against US dollar, as is the case so far this year, Himax is worse off in its US GAAP effective tax rate and vice versa.
