On January 27, 2014, MagnaChip announced that it would postpone its fourth quarter 2013 earnings release to provide additional time for MagnaChip to complete a review of its financial results. Following this news, MagnaChip stock dropped over 8% down to $16.16 per share on January 28, 2014. Then, on March 11, 2014, MagnaChip disclosed that its Audit Committee had found material weaknesses in internal controls over financial reporting and other accounting improprieties relating to MagnaChip's recognition of revenue on sales to distributors. As a result, the Company stated that it would be required to restate its financial results for 2011, 2012 and 2013, and MagnaChip's stock dropped another 13% to trade as low as $12.50 per share.
In addition, as a direct result of these accounting issues, on March 28, 2014, MagnaChip announced the resignation of the Chief Financial Officer and the postponement of its Annual Investor Conference.
