Outlook

TowerJazz expects revenues for its 2014 third quarter ending September 30, 2014 to be $225 million with an upward or downward range of 5%. Mid-range guidance represents 70% year over year growth. The third quarter of 2014 will be the first quarter to realize no revenue from Micron, hence the mid-range guidance represents a year over year revenue growth of 20% for all customers (excluding Micron and Panasonic) and 13% quarter over quarter growth.

During the quarter, the Company received and is now evaluating offers and opportunities to strengthen its balance sheet by exchanging its existing debt with longer term, non-equity debt vehicles.

Management Remarks

Russell Ellwanger, Chief Executive Officer of TowerJazz, commented, “The second quarter was our first integrating TPSCo activities and consolidating the revenues. There were no operational surprises against our plans and better than expected business activities. We closed negotiations with 3rd party customers, including high end CIS and top-tier IDM transfers, which should reach annual revenues of well beyond $100 million within the next 3 years. We expect these first contracts and agreements to begin volume production ramp in the second half of 2015.

“The core TowerJazz business grew significantly at 50% and 40%, for our top 5 and top 10 customers, respectively, when comparing their revenues in the second quarter of 2014 to the same period of last year. For these top customers, we expect continuous growth throughout the year, with already 11% and 20%, respectively, comparing the second quarter revenues to the first quarter of 2014.

“Second quarter saw a record number of masks full sets entering our Israeli and US fabs of over 240 vs. 130 for the same period of 2013. The first half of 2014 increase in new masks of 62% vs. the first half of 2013 is a definite indication that we are providing customers’ satisfaction in growing market segments, enabling continued significant growth in 2015 and 2016, as these products reach peak volume production.

“We are seeing strong market demand from customers being served by all of our business units, which we are well poised to serve both organically and with the newly added operational and technical capabilities of TPSCo, enabling us to exceed our $1 billion annual revenue target.”

(*)

Fully diluted earnings per share calculation and presentation are not required under GAAP for the second quarter of 2014, since the company did not have net profit. Hence, fully diluted earnings per share is not different than basic earnings per share for the second quarter of 2014. Had fully diluted earnings per share calculation and presentation been required for the second quarter of 2014, the company would have added 7 million shares underlying its capital notes, 4 million shares underlying options and warrants, 11 million possible shares underlying notes series F due December 2015 (unless repayable with cash), 11 million possible shares underlying notes series F due December 2016 (unless repayable with cash) and 6 million possible shares underlying Jazz notes due December 2018 (unless repayable with cash).

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
