Amkor Technology Reports Financial Results for the First Quarter 2017

*Fourth quarter 2016 results include approximately $26 million (250 basis points to gross margin) of insurance proceeds related to the second quarter 2016 Japan earthquakes.
**EBITDA and free cash flow are non-GAAP measures. The reconciliations to the comparable GAAP measures are included below under "Selected Operating Data."

“Our business was essentially break-even for the first quarter and in line with guidance," said Megan Faust, Amkor’s corporate vice president and chief financial officer. "Earnings were reduced by a non-cash foreign exchange rate loss of $11 million ($0.05 per diluted share) related to the re-measurement of our balance sheet liabilities denominated in foreign currencies."

Cash and cash equivalents were $614 million and total debt was $1.5 billion, at March 31, 2017.

Business Outlook

"Looking ahead to Q2, we expect that revenues will increase around 9% sequentially, driven by strength in communications and other markets," said Kelley.

"We expect to complete our acquisition of Nanium in the second quarter. Nanium is the leader in wafer-level fan-out technology and has already shipped over 1 billion units to major customers. This acquisition will strengthen our position in the wafer-level packaging market," continued Kelley.

"In Q2, we expect to complete the sale of our K1 factory in Korea," said Faust. "The sale price is approximately $140 million, and we expect to recognize an after-tax gain of approximately $80 million ($0.33 per diluted share)."

Second quarter 2017 outlook (unless otherwise noted):

  • Net sales of $955 million to $1.035 billion, up 5% to 13% from the prior quarter
  • Gross margin of 16% to 20%
  • Net income of $86 million to $125 million, or $0.36 to $0.52 per share (includes gain from the sale of our K1 factory)
  • Full year capital expenditures of around $500 million, unchanged from our previous forecast
