CEO Perspective

"Our third quarter results came in line with our expectations and guidance," commented Russell Ellwanger, Chief Executive Officer of TowerJazz.  "The company continues to execute on its operational and strategic plans.  In this past quarter, we announced the largest single customer manufacturing engagement in the company history, which includes advanced flows in the Nishiwaki, Japan factory, increased activities in both Migdal Haemek factories and the operation of a jointly built epitaxial center for super junction families.  These engagements with Vishay Siliconix are multi-year through 2018.  We have continued to make strong progress in growing markets such as Front End Module for mobile communication, power management and high-end image sensors. This is evidenced in the record number of new masks that have entered our factories, this being the last step leading to production revenue ramp. We have done this whilst making the company more efficient as evidenced in our EBITDA performance."  

Ellwanger further commented: "Additionally, we are in the final stages of signing a unique contract in Japan, which we believe will be a significant model for multiple Japanese Integrated Device Makers, and as well we are in advanced stages of an enabling agreement for one of our strong strategic initiatives. We look forward to this evening's call and giving added flavor to the key activities of the last months."

Third quarter 2012 results summary

Third quarter 2012 revenue reached $154.6 million. Revenues were in line with the Company's guidance range of between $152 to $162 million. Third quarter 2012 revenue represents a decline of 8 percent compared to the previous quarter and 12 percent compared with third quarter 2011 revenue of $176.1 million.

On a non-GAAP basis, as described and reconciled below, the third quarter 2012 gross profit was $57 million, representing a 37 percent gross margin, higher than the 33 percent gross margin for the third quarter of 2011.

Operating profit on a non-GAAP basis in the third quarter of 2012 was $40 million, or operating margin of 26 percent, compared with operating profit of $39 million, or operating margin of 22 percent, as achieved in the third quarter of 2011.

The improvement in margins are as a result of the efficiency measures that management has executed, including the cost reduction plan in the Japanese facility, with the aim of lowering operating expenses by more than $30 million on an annual basis.

On a GAAP basis, net loss in the third quarter of 2012 was $18 million or $0.84 per share as compared to $2 million net profit or $0.09 per share in the third quarter of 2011. As compared to the same quarter last year, financing expenses increased significantly mainly due to GAAP, non-cash financing expenses resulting from the changes in the fair market value of part of our debentures and warrants which are recorded at fair market value per GAAP and from the effect of the NIS/USD exchange rate changes on our NIS denominated debentures. Excluding financing expenses and the net effect of the one-time gain from the sale of the Company's investment in HHNEC in the third quarter of 2011, net loss in the quarter was reduced by $6 million compared with that of the third quarter last year.

On a non-GAAP basis, net profit in the third quarter of 2012 was $32 million or $1.47 per share, representing a 20 percent net margin. This is compared to $32 million or $1.50 per share, representing a 18 percent net margin in the third quarter of 2011.

EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 was $40 million, a 2 percent increase as compared to $39 million in the third quarter of 2011, excluding the one-time gain from realization of investment in HHNEC in 2011.

Net cash from operating activities for the third quarter of 2012 amounted to $15 million, or $26 million excluding one-time reorganization payments of $11 million related to the previously announced efficiency and cost reduction plan in its Japanese facility resulting in $30 million of savings on an annual basis.

The Company's cash and short-term deposits balance as of September 30, 2012 was $161 million as compared to $101 million as of December 31, 2011. In addition, during October 2012, the company successfully completed a private placement and raised $25 million, in an expansion of its long-term debentures series F, due December 2015 and December 2016.
