STATS ChipPAC Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Results

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."

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."

"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Nowadays, a large number of sensors and devices are connected to the network. Leading-edge IoT technologies integrate various types of sensor data to create a new value for several business decision scenarios. The transparent cloud is a model of a new IoT emergence service platform. Many service providers store and access various types of sensor data in order to create and find out new business values by integrating such data.
The broad selection of hardware, the rapid evolution of operating systems and the time-to-market for mobile apps has been so rapid that new challenges for developers and engineers arise every day.

WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Today air travel is a minefield of delays, hassles and customer disappointment. Airlines struggle to revitalize the experience. GE and M2Mi will demonstrate practical examples of how IoT solutions are helping airlines bring back personalization, reduce trip time and improve reliability. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect with GE, and Dr. Sarah Cooper, M2Mi's VP Business Development and Engineering, will explore the IoT cloud-based platform technologies driving this change including privacy controls, data transparency and integration of real time context w...
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new data-driven world, marketplaces reign supreme while interoperability, APIs and applications deliver un...
Electric power utilities face relentless pressure on their financial performance, and reducing distribution grid losses is one of the last untapped opportunities to meet their business goals. Combining IoT-enabled sensors and cloud-based data analytics, utilities now are able to find, quantify and reduce losses faster – and with a smaller IT footprint. Solutions exist using Internet-enabled sensors deployed temporarily at strategic locations within the distribution grid to measure actual line loads.
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, will explore the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The IoT is upon us, but today’s databases, built on 30-year-old math, require multiple platforms to create a single solution. Data demands of the IoT require Big Data systems that can handle ingest, transactions and analytics concurrently adapting to varied situations as they occur, with speed at scale. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, chief strategy officer at Deep Information Sciences, will look differently at IoT data so enterprises can fully leverage their IoT potential. He’ll share tips on how to speed up business initiatives, harness Big Data and remain one step ahead by apply...
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
