SunEdison Semiconductor Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results

ST. PETERS, Mo., Aug. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SunEdison Semiconductor Limited (NASDAQ:SEMI) ("SunEdison Semiconductor" or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Second Quarter 2016 Summary:

  • Revenue grew sequentially due to increased volumes and stable pricing
  • Gross profit up sequentially
  • Received final installment of a customer deposit, the first portion of which was received during the 2016 first quarter

Results Review

Net sales for the 2016 second quarter were $190.9 million, up 4.7% sequentially compared to $182.3 million in the prior quarter. The sequential increase was primarily driven by higher unit volume and stable pricing. Gross profit for the 2016 second quarter was $17.5 million, or 9.2% of net sales, compared to $15.0 million, or 8.2% of net sales in the prior quarter.

“I am pleased with our second quarter performance. We grew our revenue and gross profits sequentially. Wafer demand improved quarter-on-quarter across all diameters, and this together with stable average pricing had a positive impact on our revenue,” said Shaker Sadasivam, President and CEO. “Although there is nothing material to report at this time on our ongoing review of strategic alternatives, those efforts are continuing while we remain focused on delivering high quality products and service for our customers.”

Second quarter 2016 operating loss was $25.9 million, compared to an operating loss of $12.8 million in the 2016 first quarter. Second quarter 2016 operating loss included a $14.7 million long-lived asset impairment charge related to the previous sale of our polysilicon and chlorosilanes plant in Merano, Italy, and a $1.1 million charge related to previously announced restructuring activities. First quarter 2016 operating loss included a $1.5 million charge related to previously announced restructuring activities.

Second quarter 2016 operating cash flow was $11.1 million compared to $11.0 million in the prior quarter. Second quarter 2016 cash from financing activities was $1.2 million, and cash used in investing activities of $13.0 million included $16.9 million of capital spending. Funds remaining on deposit from a customer were $20.1 million. The Company ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $79.2 million, excluding the customer deposit.

Second quarter 2016 Adjusted EBITDA was $20.3 million, or 10.6% of sales, down $0.2 million compared to $20.5 million, or 11.2% of sales for the prior quarter. Second quarter 2016 and first quarter 2016 Adjusted EBITDA included foreign exchange losses of $2.9 million and $1.0 million, respectively, associated with the re-measurement of intra-company balances and derivative foreign currency forward contracts. Please see the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP financial measures and a description of Adjusted EBITDA in the attached financial tables.

Adjusted EBITDA [*]$20.3 $20.5 $24.2 $40.8 $55.8

(1) For the three months ended March 31, 2016, we recognized approximately $0.2 million of securities transaction tax related to the dispositions of approximately 30% investment interest in SMP, Ltd ("SMP") to our subsidiary. This is a non-recurring expense that is excluded from Adjusted EBITDA as we do not consider this to be useful in assessing our on-going operating performance.

(2) For the three months ended June 30, 2016 and March 31, 2016, we reserved approximately $0.3 million and $2.1 million, respectively, in net receivables from SunEdison, Inc., our former parent, due to their filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on April 21, 2016. This is excluded from Adjusted EBITDA as we do not consider this to be useful in assessing our on-going operating performance.

(3) In the current year, we changed our methodology for reporting adjusted EBITDA results to exclude expenses related to our ongoing evaluation of strategic alternatives, consisting mainly of legal and administration expenses related to these activities. For the three months ended June 30, 2016 and March 31, 2016, other non-recurring items included $0.9 million and $0.4 million, respectively, of strategic alternative related expenses. These are non-recurring expenses that are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA as we do not consider this to be useful in assessing our on-going operating performance.

(4) For the three months ended March 31, 2016, we recognized $86.2 million equity in loss of equity method investments, net of tax, primarily due to an $86.9 million other-than-temporary impairment charge related to SMP. For the three months ended June 30, 2016, we recognized $11.0 million equity in loss of equity method investments, net of tax, primarily due to the recognition of accumulated currency translation losses as a result of changing from an equity method to cost method investment for SMP. These charges are non-cash expenses that are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA as we do not consider this to be useful in assessing our on-going operating performance.

[*] Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. This measurement should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance. The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before net interest expense; income tax expense (benefit); depreciation and amortization; restructuring charges (reversals); non-recurring items; loss on sale of property, plant, and equipment; long-lived asset impairment charges; pension settlement charges; stock compensation expense; and equity in loss of equity method investments. All of the omitted items are either (i) non-cash items or (ii) items that we do not consider in assessing our on-going operating performance. Because it omits non-cash items, we feel that Adjusted EBITDA is less susceptible to variances in actual performance resulting from depreciation, amortization and other non-cash charges and more reflective of other factors that affect our operating performance. Because it omits the other items, we believe Adjusted EBITDA is also more reflective of our on-going operating performance. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because:

  • securities analysts and other interested parties use such calculations as a measure of financial performance and debt service capabilities, and
  • it is used by our management for internal planning purposes, including aspects of our operating budget and capital expenditures.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and it should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations include:

  • it does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments,
  • it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital,
  • it does not reflect interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our outstanding debt,
  • it does not reflect payments made or future requirements for income taxes,
  • it adjusts for restructuring charges (reversals), non-recurring items, loss on sale of property, plant, and equipment, long-lived asset impairments, and pension settlement charges which are factors that we do not consider indicative of future performance,
  • it adjusts for non-cash stock compensation expense and equity in loss of equity method investments to more clearly reflect comparable period-over-period cash operating performance,
  • although it reflects adjustments for factors that we do not consider indicative of future performance, we may, in the future, incur expenses similar to the adjustments reflected in our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, and
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash requirements for such replacements.

Investors are encouraged to evaluate each adjustment and the reasons we consider it appropriate for supplemental analysis.
