TAINAN, Taiwan, Aug. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Himax Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: HIMX) (“Himax” or “Company”), a leading supplier and fabless manufacturer of display drivers and other semiconductor products, announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

“The Company’s second quarter 2018 revenues and gross margin met our guidance while IFRS earnings per diluted ADS exceeded guidance. The anticipated sequential growth in revenue was mainly driven by accelerating TDDI shipment in the smartphone sector and further growth in the automotive sector in the small and medium-sized display driver business. Furthermore, our WLO business in the non-driver IC business rebounded as anticipated. Shipment volume increased and WLO capacity utilization improved subsequently,” said Mr. Jordan Wu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Himax.

“Looking into the third quarter, we expect our large display driver IC business will grow sequentially benefiting from Chinese panel customers’ capacity expansion and the ramping of new fabs. Our small and medium-sized business is likely to decline as our growth in the automotive segment will be offset by the significant decline of smartphone sales. The soft smartphone sales was caused by our limited TDDI shipment due to the constraint of industry pervasive capacity shortage issue and the traditional discrete driver IC is being replaced quickly by TDDI and AMOLED. To capture the TDDI opportunity, we have been working very hard to source and qualify additional foundry capacity. We expect the addition of new foundry capacity for TDDI will start mass production toward early fourth quarter and will substantially grow our TDDI revenue starting from Q4 2018.”

“For the non-driver areas, we expect the WLO shipment for the second half of 2018 will increase significantly versus the first half. As to our 3D sensing business, we are in partnership with several leading smartphone names to enable their 3D sensing by providing optics, projector or total solution, depending on customer’s needs and their in-house capabilities. The projects we are involved in cover all three types of 3D sensing technologies, namely structured light, active stereo camera (ASC), and to a lesser extent, time-of-flight (ToF). 3D sensing for Android smartphone market is still at a nascent stage with very limited adoption in 2018.  We expect the market adoption will pick up starting 2019. With our comprehensive technology coverage, proven manufacturing expertise, new solutions roadmap and alliances with leading AP platform providers, we believe we are best positioned to be the partner of choice for Android smartphone makers in their 3D sensing projects,” said Mr. Jordan Wu.

Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

The second quarter revenues of $181.4 million represented an increase of 11.4% sequentially and an increase of 19.5% year-over-year. Gross margin was 23.0%, up 0.5% sequentially.  IFRS earnings per diluted ADS were 1.2 cents, better than the guidance range of 0.0 to 1.0 cent per diluted ADS.

Revenue from large display drivers was $60.6 million, up 2.2% sequentially, and up 16.3% year-over-year, driven by increasing 4K TV penetration and Chinese panel customers’ ramping of new LCD fabs. Large panel driver ICs accounted for 33.4% of the company’s total revenues for the second quarter, compared to 36.4% in the first quarter of 2018 and 34.4% a year ago.

Revenue for small and medium-sized display drivers came in at $89.3 million, up 24.5% sequentially and up 27.5% year-over-year. The driver ICs for small and medium-sized applications accounted for 49.2% of total sales for the second quarter, as compared to 44.0% in the first quarter of 2018 and 46.1% a year ago. Sales into smartphones were up 54.3% sequentially and up 42.5% year-over-year. The growth was driven by accelerating TDDI shipments and the anticipated smartphone makers’ inventory replenishment for new product launches.

Driver IC revenue for automotive applications recorded another historical quarter, up 15% sequentially and more than 35% year-over-year. The quarterly revenue reached $28.7 million, accounting for more than 19% of our driver IC revenue. Himax is happy with the strong momentum in this space.

Revenues from non-driver businesses were $31.5 million, down 1.1% sequentially but up 6.4% versus last year. Non-driver products accounted for 17.4% of total revenues, as compared to 19.6% in the first quarter of 2018 and 19.5% a year ago. The sequential decline was mainly due to reduced NRE income. The year-over-year increase was driven mainly by WLO shipment. The Company expects WLO shipment to continue to rebound strongly in the second half.

IFRS gross margin for the second quarter was 23.0%, up 50 basis points from 22.5% in the first quarter of 2018 but down 80 basis points from the same period last year. The sequential increase was due mainly to improved product mix.

IFRS operating expenses were $41.3 million in the second quarter of 2018, up 3.6% from the preceding quarter and up 11.3% from a year ago. The year-over-year increase was primarily the result of rising R&D expenses in the areas of 3D sensing, WLO, TDDI, and high-end TV, as well as annual merit increase.

IFRS operating margin for the second quarter of 2018 was 0.3%, up from -0.6% in the same period last year and up from -2.0% in the prior quarter. The sequential and the year-over-year increase was both a result of revenue increase but offset by increased operating expenses.

Second quarter non-IFRS operating income was $0.8 million, or 0.5% of sales, up from -0.3% for the same period last year and up from -1.8% a quarter ago.

IFRS profit for the second quarter was $2.0 million, or 1.2 cents per diluted ADS, compared to IFRS loss of $2.8 million, or 1.6 cents per diluted ADS, in the previous quarter and IFRS loss of $0.7 million, or 0.4 cents per diluted ADS, a year ago. The sequential increase was a result of higher sales and better gross margin.

Second quarter non-IFRS profit was $2.3 million, or 1.3 cents per diluted ADS, compared to a loss of $2.6 million, or 1.5 cents per diluted ADS last quarter and a loss of $0.3 million, or 0.2 cents per diluted ADS the same period last year.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

Himax had $126.7 million of cash, cash equivalents and other financial assets as of the end of June 2018, compared to $185.9 million at the same time last year and $151.9 million a quarter ago. The cash position dropped $25.2 million due primarily to (1) capex of $17.7 million, (2) cash outflow of $2.8 million from operations, and (3) Emza investment of $3.5 million. On top of the above cash position, restricted cash was $147.0 million at the end of the quarter, as compared to $147.0 million in the preceding quarter and $107.2 million a year ago. The restricted cash is mainly used to guarantee the Company’s short-term borrowings for the same amount.

Himax’s inventories as of June 30, 2018 were $142.1 million, down from $148.0 million a quarter ago and down from $147.7 million at the same time last year. Account receivables at the end of June 2018 were $176.3 million as compared to $164.5 million a year ago and $166.6 million last quarter. DSO was 93 days at the end of June 2018, as compared to 97 days a year ago and 92 days at end of the last quarter.

Net cash outflow from operating activities for the second quarter was $2.8 million as compared to an outflow of $1.2 million for the same period last year and an inflow of $2.3 million last quarter.

Capital expenditures were $17.7 million in the second quarter of 2018 versus $11.7 million a year ago and $18.6 million last quarter. The second quarter capex consisted mainly of ongoing payments for the new building’s construction, WLO capacity expansion and installation of active alignment equipment to support the Company’s 3D sensing business. Other capex, primarily for design tools and R&D related equipment for the Company’s traditional IC design business, is around $2.5 million during the quarter.

Share Buyback Update

As of June 30, 2018, Himax had 172.1 million ADS outstanding, unchanged from last quarter. On a fully diluted basis, the total ADS outstanding are 172.5 million.

Fiscal Year 2017 Dividend Declaration

During the second quarter, the Company declared an annual cash dividend of 10 cents per ADS, totaling $17.2 million, which has been paid out on July 31. The Company’s dividend is determined primarily by the prior year’s profitability. Himax’s decision to pay out 61.7% of last year’s net profit demonstrated its continued support for the shareholder base and strong confidence in the near term outlook for the Company’s newly increased capex and the overall long-term growth prospects.

Q3 2018 Outlook

Comparing to the second quarter revenues, Himax expects single digit growth for large driver ICs; mid single digit decline for small and medium-sized driver IC and around 15% growth for its non-driver IC business.

Display Driver IC Market
LDDIC
Large display driver IC business recorded low-single-digit growth in the second quarter due mainly to the Company’s Chinese panel customers’ ongoing capacity expansion, a more favorable product mix driven by the market’s 4K TV demands and shipment to a new panel customer who recently started ramping up their first fab. Looking into the third quarter, while the Chinese domestic market is relatively slow for reasons such as weak currency, the western markets, especially in the US, remain robust. Himax sees a single digit growth for the third quarter as the Company continues to benefit from Chinese panel customers’ capacity expansion and ramping of new fabs. However, foundry capacity shortage remains an issue. While Himax is making good progress in adding new capacity into its pool, the ultimate ramping schedule will depend on how fast its panel customers can go through their customer qualification, something all the Company’s major customers are working very hard on.

Looking into the future, with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics approaching and more Gen 10.5 fabs coming online to enable very large screen 8K TVs, many TV manufacturers are rushing to introduce consumer-grade super high end products with 8K resolution. Capitalizing on the Company’s 4K TV success, Himax is strongly positioned for this emerging market opportunity.

SMDDIC
The trend for full-screen, 18:9 display is already fully in place for smartphone with phone makers now aggressively adopting such screens for their 2018 and 2019 models even for mid-end and entry-level products. Himax’s comprehensive TDDI product portfolio positions it well to support this trend. Himax is pleased that both its FHD+ and HD+ TDDI ICs enjoyed significant growth during Q2, with revenue and shipment volume both more than tripled during the quarter, despite being able to fulfill just a fraction of orders amid the severe foundry capacity shortage. Capped by the very limited capacity, its Q3 TDDI shipment will likely see some 10% decline from that of the second quarter. TDDI’s foundry capacity shortage is even more challenging than that of the large display driver IC. To capture the TDDI opportunity, the Company has been working very hard to source and qualify additional foundry capacity. The Company is on track to complete the porting of its existing products into another foundry vendor and start mass production toward early fourth quarter. Himax expects the addition of the new foundry capacity will substantially grow its TDDI revenue starting from Q4 with further growth expected throughout 2019. In parallel, to further widen its reach, the Company is working on new designs based on additional foundry partners’ processes which, however, will only be ready next year. The Company expects TDDI penetration will reach 40% in 2019 which represents an enormous growth opportunity for Himax. TDDI has more than double the ASP of the traditional driver IC with better margins. It will change Himax’s product mix for smartphone display driver IC and make a very significant contribution to its growth going forward. Looking into the third quarter, sales for smartphones are likely to decline around 40% sequentially as the TDDI shipment is constrained by capacity shortage and the traditional discrete driver IC is being quickly replaced by TDDI and AMOLED.

In automotive segment, the Company continued to have new projects going into mass production which were design-wins of the prior years. During the second quarter, sales into automotive sector already accounted for more than 19% of its total driver IC sales and close to 16% of its total revenues. On top of the world’s first TDDI projects for automotives during the first quarter, Himax’s team further successfully added AMOLED design-wins during the second quarter. The Company has achieved a distant number one market share position thanks to its superior product quality, service and stable delivery. Q3 revenue in this segment is set to grow around 20% sequentially.

For third quarter small and medium-sized driver IC business, the company expects revenue to decline mid single digit sequentially.

Non-Driver Product Categories
The non-driver IC business segment has been the Company’s most exciting growth area and a differentiator for Himax in the past few years.

3D Sensing Solutions
Since the Company announced 3D sensing as one of Himax’s long term growth initiatives in 2017, 3D sensing, led by Apple’s iPhone X, is gradually becoming a new industry trend as major Android smartphone makers beginning to integrate it into flagship models, although most of such projects are still in development stage. Leading Android smartphone makers are exploring various 3D sensing technologies, namely structured light, active stereo camera (ASC) and, to a lesser extent, time-of-flight (ToF), trying to strike a good balance of cost, specifications and application. More software players are entering the ecosystem to develop 3D sensing applications beyond the existing applications, namely facial recognition, online payment and camera performance enhancement. Being a leading player in the 3D sensing space, Himax is in partnership with several leading smartphone names to enable their 3D sensing by providing optics, projector or total solution, depending on the customer’s needs and their in-house capabilities. The projects Himax is involved in cover all the three types of 3D sensing technologies mentioned above. These efforts will facilitate a broader adoption of 3D sensing on Android smartphone starting 2019. The Company’s goal is to ensure that the smartphones backed by Himax 3D sensing technology will deliver the industry’s highest standard in all of 3D depth accuracy, indoor/outdoor sensitivity, power consumption, size, data security and eye safety.

SLiM™, Himax’s structured light 3D sensing hardware total solution which the Company jointly announced with Qualcomm in last August, targets premium smartphone market. The Qualcomm/Himax solution brings together Qualcomm’s industry leading 3D algorithm with Himax’s cutting-edge design and manufacturing capabilities in optics, NIR sensors, and ASIC, as well as the Company’s unique know-how in 3D sensing system integration. It is by far the highest quality 3D sensing total solution available for the Android market right now. At present, Himax is working with customers who are targeting to bring new 3D sensing applications to smartphone, on top of facial unlock and online payment. The Company is now targeting the end of the year or early 2019 for shipment to the customers for their product launch in first half 2019, although the actual shipment date will ultimately be dictated by end customers. Another noteworthy update is that its SLiM™ total solution can work on Qualcomm’s high end mobile platforms now, as opposed to being limited to only the premium Snapdragon platform when Himax first launched the technology, thereby lowering the total cost barrier of 3D sensing.

The Company’s ASC 3D sensing solution, targeting mass market smartphone models, achieved a significant milestone during the second quarter. While structured light 3D sensing offers outstanding depth precision for its complex projector design, ASC 3D sensing can also enable facial recognition with a simpler projector. While it is somehow constrained by its limited depth precision, it is a lower cost alternative for face authentication and enjoys better software readiness since it is building on the existing dual camera ecosystem. Himax is working with top tier smartphone makers and leading platform partners concurrently on multiple projects. Early shipment is targeted to begin toward the end of the year with major ramp in 2019, although the actual shipment date will ultimately be dictated by end customers. The Company expects more design-wins in the coming months. It appears that ASC 3D sensing, with its cost advantage and the existing dual camera ecosystem, has a better chance of accelerating 3D sensing adoption for facial recognition on Android smartphone market during 2019.

WLO
As anticipated, the shipment volume to the Company’s WLO customer for the second quarter was a lot higher versus that of the first quarter and its WLO capacity utilization improved subsequently. Himax expects the shipment for the second half to increase significantly versus that of the first half. The overall 2018 shipment will increase considerably year-over-year. Meanwhile, the Company is encouraged by the progress of its new R&D projects with the said customer for their next generation products centering around its exceptional design know-how and mass production expertise in WLO technology. Himax is very excited about the significant growth opportunities of these projects.

While 3D sensing is the top priority of the Company’s WLO business at present, Himax also has engineering collaboration with select world-class technology leaders to develop wave-guide for AR glasses and micro displays using its advanced WLO technology. Himax expects to kick off new R&D projects during the third quarter.   

CAPEX
The Company announced the increase of the Phase I capital expenditure budget, which is on top of its regular capex for the IC design business, from $80 million to $105 million in early 2018. The majority of the Phase I investment is going to land and building, new equipment for the WLO anchor customer, and an initial capacity of 2 million units per month for 3D sensing. Of the $105 million budget, $33 million has been paid out in 2017, followed by $17.5 million made in the first quarter 2018 and another $15.2 million in the second quarter. The payment for the remaining $39.3 million is to be made throughout the rest of 2018. With the anticipation of broader 3D sensing adoption in 2019, Himax expects to further expand production capacity towards the end of the second half. Kick-off timing and amount of the Phase II investment is still being evaluated, depending on the customers’ projected volume and timetable.

As the Company mentioned in the previous earnings calls, the capex budget will be funded through its internal resources and banking facilities. Himax has more than sufficient banking facilities with favorable cost for such capex budget and will start to draw down some of them in Q3 2018.

CMOS Image Sensor
Himax has been working with an industry leading fingerprint solution provider to develop an under-display optical fingerprint product in the last two years, targeting smartphones using OLED displays. Himax provides a customized low-power image sensor in the solution. The Company is pleased to announce that the solution has entered into mass production with a major Android smartphone OEM for their new flagship model with shipment expected in the coming months. The CMOS image sensor used in the solution will have a notably higher ASP than the Company’s traditional display driver IC products.

On other CMOS image sensor business update, Himax continues to make great progress with its two machine vision sensor product lines, namely, near infrared (“NIR”) sensor and Always-on-Sensor (“AoSTM”). NIR sensor is a critical part for both of our structured light and ASC 3D sensing solutions. The Company expects significant growth in its CMOS image sensor business as 3D sensing shipment gets started. On the AoSTM product line, the acquisition of Emza enables Himax to be uniquely positioned to provide ultra-low power imaging sensing solutions, leveraging Himax’s industry leading super low power CIS design and Emza’s unique AI-based computer vision algorithm. Himax is pleased with the status of engagement with leading players in areas such as connected home, smart building and security, all of which new frontiers for Himax.

For traditional human vision segments, the Company sees strong demands in laptop and increasing shipment for multimedia applications such as car recorders, surveillance, drones, home appliances, and consumer electronics, among others.

LCOS
Himax’s main focus areas are AR goggle devices and head-up-displays (HUD) for automotives. While AR will take a few years to fully realize its market potential, the Company has seen many companies, be the top name multinationals or new start-ups, invest heavily to develop the ecosystem -- applications, software, operating system, system electronics, and optics. Himax is slated to kick off another AR goggle project with tailor-made micro display for a tier-1 tech name during the third quarter. In addition, the Company continues to make great progress in developing high-end holographic head-up display for automotives. Timing for such revenue contribution would be 2019 the earliest.

For non-driver IC business, the Company expects revenue to increase around 15% sequentially in the third quarter driven by WLO shipment. 

Third Quarter 2018 Guidance
The Company is providing the following financial guidance for the third quarter of 2018:

Net Revenue:To be around flat sequentially 
Gross Margin:To be around 22.5%, depending on final product mix
IFRS EPS:To be around -1.0 cent per diluted ADS 
Non-IFRS EPS(1):To be around 1.5 cents per diluted ADS 
(1) Non-IFRS EPS excludes share-based compensation and acquisition-related charges 

As the Company has done in the past, its third quarter IFRS earnings per diluted ADS guidance has taken into account its expected 2018 grant of restricted share units, or RSUs, to the team at the end of September. The 2018 RSUs, subject to its Board approval, is now assumed to be around $4.5 million, almost all of which, or 2.1 cents per diluted ADS, will be vested and expensed immediately on September 30th, the grant date. In comparison, the 2017 RSUs totaled $6.5 million, out of which $6.1 million was vested immediately. The grant of RSUs would lead to higher third quarter IFRS operating expenses compared to the other quarters of the year.

The Company’s bottom line has been substantially affected by the drastic increase of R&D expenses since some two years ago when Himax decided to enter into a number of new areas, something the Company brought up to the market’s attention repeatedly before. However, the Company believes its operation will start to be out of the trough starting from the third quarter, initially driven by the anticipated ramping of the new foundry for the TDDI product line and, thereafter, shipment of 3D sensing products in next year. 3D sensing, in particular, will represent a paradigm shift in the Company’s business when it starts to achieve a broader market adoption.

Notes to the reconciliation of the main differences:

A) Financial instruments

Under U.S. GAAP, investment securities consist of investments in marketable securities and investments in non-marketable equity securities. All of our investments in marketable securities are classified as available-for-sale securities and are reported at fair value. Investments in non-marketable equity securities in which we do not have the ability to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of the investee are stated at cost.

Under IFRS, IFRS 9 Financial Instruments includes guidance on the classification and measurement of financial instruments, a new expected credit loss model for calculating impairment on financial assets, and the new general hedge accounting requirements. It is effective for annual reporting periods beginning on January 1, 2018. To better reflect the presentation of the consolidated statements of financial position as of June 30, 2018, we reclassified comparative period information as follows:

A-1)  

As of June 30, 2017, we had $8,663 thousand reported as investments in marketable securities available-for-sale under U.S. GAAP, that were reclassified to financial assets at amortized cost and financial assets at fair value through profit or loss-current, at amounts of $5,306 thousand and $3,357 thousand, respectively, under IFRS.

A-2)        

As of June 30, 2017, we had $12,242 thousand reported as investment in non-marketable equity securities under U.S. GAAP, that were reclassified to financial assets at fair value through profit or loss-noncurrent and financial assets at fair value through other comprehensive income at amounts of $10,562 thousand and $1,680 thousand, respectively, under IFRS.

A-3)        

Under U.S. GAAP, we recognized redeemable convertible preferred shares which were issued to a non-controlling shareholder by Himax Display Inc., a consolidated subsidiary, as temporary equity. The redeemable convertible preferred shares were presented as redeemable noncontrolling interest and recognized at fair value.

Under IFRS, we recognized the above-mentioned redeemable convertible preferred shares as financial liability at amortized cost using effective interest method.

As of June 30, 2017, we had $3,656 thousand reported as redeemable noncontrolling interest under U.S. GAAP, that were reclassified to financial liability at amortized cost-noncurrent and recognized interest expense (finance costs) using effective interest method which decreased the retained earnings by $1,022 thousand. After the above adjustments, we had $4,678 thousand reported as financial liability at amortized cost-noncurrent under IFRS.

For the six months and three months ended June 30, 2017, interest expense (finance costs) was adjusted for an increase of $154 thousand and $77 thousand, respectively.

B) Allowance of sales returns and discounts

Under U.S. GAAP, allowance of sales returns and discounts were recognized as a reduction in revenue in the year the related revenue is recognized based on historical experience. The corresponding allowance of sales returns and discounts was presented as a reduction in accounts receivable.

Under IFRS, the allowance of sales returns and discounts is a present obligation with uncertain timing and an amount that arises from past events and is therefore reclassified as provisions. 

As of June 30, 2017, the amounts reclassified from allowance of sales returns and discounts to provisions was $1,273 thousand.

C) Property, plant and equipment, net

Under U.S. GAAP, property, plant, and equipment typically consist of software and long-lived tangible assets used to create and distribute an entity's products.

Under IFRS, property, plant and equipment are tangible items. Certain software that is not an integral part of the related hardware and prepayment for equipment not shipped to the factory are reclassified out from property, plant and equipment as they do not meet the definition of property, plant and equipment.

As of June 30, 2017, property, plant and equipment, net of $3,961 thousand were reclassified to other intangible assets, net and other non-current assets at amounts of $665 thousand and $3,296 thousand, respectively.

D) Deferred tax assets and liabilities

Under U.S. GAAP, for a particular tax-paying component of an entity and within a particular tax jurisdiction, all current / non-current deferred tax liabilities and assets are offset and presented as a single amount.

Under IFRS, deferred tax liabilities and assets are offset only if the entity has a legally enforceable right to offset current tax liabilities and assets.  

As of June 30, 2017, the amounts reclassified from deferred tax assets to deferred tax liabilities was $1,267 thousand.

E) Income taxes payable

Under U.S. GAAP, income taxes payable are classified as current if cash payment is expected within 12 months; if not, the amount is classified as noncurrent.

Under IFRS, income taxes payable are classified as current unless an unconditional right to defer payment for a period greater than twelve months exists.

As of June 30, 2017, the amounts reclassified from other liabilities to income taxes payable was $526 thousand.

F) Employee benefits

Under U.S. GAAP, actuarial gains and losses arising in the period are recognized immediately in OCI and amortized from accumulated OCI into the profit or loss over the employees’ remaining service period.

Under IFRS, remeasurements of the net defined benefit liability (asset) are recognized in OCI and are not reclassified to profit or loss in a subsequent period.

As of June 30, 2017, net defined benefit assets included in other assets, net defined benefit liabilities, deferred tax assets and remeasurements of the net defined benefit liability or asset related to components of accumulated other comprehensive income were adjusted for a decrease of $90 thousand, $15 thousand, $56 thousand and an increase of $1,016 thousand, respectively.

G) Share-Based Compensation

Under U.S. GAAP, we recognized compensation expense by straight-line method and recognized excess tax benefits from share-based payments.

Under IFRS, we recognized compensation expense by graded vesting and there is no requirement of recognizing excess tax benefits under IFRS.

For the six months and three months ended June 30, 2017, operating expense for share-based compensation was adjusted for a decrease of $48 thousand and $23 thousand, respectively.
