SINGAPORE--31 JANUARY 2013, UNITED STATES -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- STATS ChipPAC Ltd. ("STATS ChipPAC" or the "Company") (SGX-ST: STATSChP) (SGX: S24), a leading provider of advanced semiconductor packaging and test services, today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year 2012.

Tan Lay Koon, President and Chief Executive Officer of STATS ChipPAC, said, "We ended the year 2012 on a strong note with record revenue of $480.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase of 17.6% over the prior quarter and 12.6% over the fourth quarter of 2011. Fourth quarter 2012 revenue reflected strong demand in advanced packaging and test services for high end smartphones and tablets and the benefit of an extra week in the quarter. Revenue for the full year 2012 of $1.7 billion was flat to the prior year."

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2012 improved to 18.3% compared to 16.0% in the third quarter of 2012 and 16.9% in the fourth quarter of 2011. Operating margin before goodwill and equipment impairment and flood related income (expenses) for the fourth quarter of 2012, including litigation settlement charges announced on 29 January 2013, decreased to 4.4% of revenue compared to 6.5% in the third quarter of 2012 and 6.6% in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Net income(1) for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $1.7 million compared to net income of $3.2 million in the third quarter of 2012 and net loss of $46.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Net income(1) for the full year 2012, including litigation settlement charges(2), was $16.6 million compared to net loss of $2.5 million in the full year 2011. Excluding the litigation settlement charges(2), the net income for the fourth quarter and full year 2012 were $23.7 million and $38.6 million, respectively.

John Lau, Chief Financial Officer of STATS ChipPAC, said, "Gross margin for the full year 2012 was 16.9% compared to 17.0% in the full year 2011. Our adjusted EBITDA(3) including litigation settlement charges(2), in the fourth quarter and full year 2012 was $100.1 million and $408.9 million or 20.8% and 24.0% of revenue, respectively, compared to $85.2 million and $406.6 million or 20.0% and 23.8% in the fourth quarter and full year 2011, respectively. Excluding the litigation settlement charges(2), adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter and full year 2012 was $122.1 million and $430.9 million or 25.4% and 25.3% of revenue, respectively. Capital spending in the fourth quarter and full year 2012 was $55.2 million and $409.9 million or 11.5% and 24.1% of revenue, respectively, compared to $53.2 million and $304.2 million or 12.5% and 17.8% of revenue in the fourth quarter and full year 2011. We ended the fourth quarter of 2012 with cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $210.2 million and debt of $843.3 million compared to $238.1 million and $810.3 million as of the end of fourth quarter of 2011, respectively."

Outlook
Tan Lay Koon commented, "Based on current visibility, we expect net revenues in the first quarter of 2013 to be approximately 13% to 19% decrease compared to the prior quarter, with adjusted EBITDA(3) in the range of 20% to 25% of revenue. Compared to the prior quarter, the revenue outlook for first quarter of 2013 is impacted by seasonality and excludes the benefit of an extra week. We expect capital expenditure(4) in the first quarter of 2013 to be approximately $80 million to $100 million."

The outlook for the first quarter of 2013 is based on a fiscal 13-week quarter and is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those disclosed in the outlook statements. These statements are based on our management's beliefs and assumptions, which involve judgments about future trends, events and conditions, all of which are subject to change and many of which are beyond our control.

Investors should consider these assumptions and make their own assessment of the future performance of STATS ChipPAC and note that there may not be a direct correlation between the net income of the Company with adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue.

"There's a growing demand from users for things to be faster. When you think about all the transactions or interactions users will have with your product and everything that is between those transactions and interactions - what drives us at Catchpoint Systems is the idea to measure that and to analyze it," explained Leo Vasiliou, Director of Web Performance Engineering at Catchpoint Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York Ci...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
Connected devices and the industrial internet are growing exponentially every year with Cisco expecting 50 billion devices to be in operation by 2020. In this period of growth, location-based insights are becoming invaluable to many businesses as they adopt new connected technologies. Knowing when and where these devices connect from is critical for a number of scenarios in supply chain management, disaster management, emergency response, M2M, location marketing and more. In his session at @Th...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
Apixio Inc. has raised $19.3 million in Series D venture capital funding led by SSM Partners with participation from First Analysis, Bain Capital Ventures and Apixio’s largest angel investor. Apixio will dedicate the proceeds toward advancing and scaling products powered by its cognitive computing platform, further enabling insights for optimal patient care. The Series D funding comes as Apixio experiences strong momentum and increasing demand for its HCC Profiler solution, which mines unstruc...
SYS-CON Events has announced today that Roger Strukhoff has been named conference chair of Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo 2016 Silicon Valley. The 19th Cloud Expo and 6th @ThingsExpo will take place on November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. "The Internet of Things brings trillions of dollars of opportunity to developers and enterprise IT, no matter how you measure it," stated Roger Strukhoff. "More importantly, it leverages the power of devices and the Interne...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to imp...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
The IoT is changing the way enterprises conduct business. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Eric Hoffman, Vice President at EastBanc Technologies, discussed how businesses can gain an edge over competitors by empowering consumers to take control through IoT. He cited examples such as a Washington, D.C.-based sports club that leveraged IoT and the cloud to develop a comprehensive booking system. He also highlighted how IoT can revitalize and restore outdated business models, making them profitable ...
IoT offers a value of almost $4 trillion to the manufacturing industry through platforms that can improve margins, optimize operations & drive high performance work teams. By using IoT technologies as a foundation, manufacturing customers are integrating worker safety with manufacturing systems, driving deep collaboration and utilizing analytics to exponentially increased per-unit margins. However, as Benoit Lheureux, the VP for Research at Gartner points out, “IoT project implementers often ...
When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Animesh Singh, an STSM and Lead for IBM Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, will detail how to build a distributed serverless, polyglot, microservices framework using open source tec...
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
