SunEdison Semiconductor Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

ST. PETERS, Mo., Nov. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SunEdison Semiconductor Limited (NASDAQ:SEMI) ("SunEdison Semiconductor" or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Results Review

Net sales for the 2016 third quarter were $192.5 million, up 0.8% sequentially compared to $190.9 million in the prior quarter.  The sequential increase was primarily driven by higher unit volume and stable pricing.  Gross profit for the 2016 third quarter was $16.8 million, or 8.7% of net sales, compared to $17.5 million, or 9.2% of net sales in the prior quarter. 

Third quarter 2016 operating loss was $15.0 million, compared to an operating loss of $25.9 million in the 2016 second quarter.  Third quarter 2016 operating loss included long-lived asset impairment and restructuring charges of $1.4 million and $0.8 million, respectively, primarily related to the 2015 Ipoh restructuring plan.  Second quarter 2016 operating loss included a $14.7 million long-lived asset impairment charge related to the previous sale of our polysilicon and chlorosilanes plant in Merano, Italy and a $1.1 million restructuring charge related to previously announced restructuring activities. 

Third quarter 2016 operating cash flow was $15.6 million compared to $11.1 million in the prior quarter.  Third quarter 2016 cash from financing activities was $11.0 million and included $11.5 million of advanced payments related to a customer deposit.  Capital spending was $28.0 million during the third quarter, of which $11.5 million was funded by the customer deposit.  The Company ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $78.3 million, which does not include the customer deposit. 

Third quarter 2016 Adjusted EBITDA was $17.0 million, or 8.8% of sales, down $3.3 million compared to $20.3 million, or 10.6% of sales for the prior quarter.  Third quarter 2016 and second quarter 2016 Adjusted EBITDA included foreign exchange losses of $3.8 million and $2.9 million, respectively, associated with the re-measurement of intra-company balances and derivative foreign currency forward contracts.  Third quarter 2015 Adjusted EBITDA included a $1.7 million loss associated with the re-measurement of intra-company balances and derivative foreign currency forward contracts.  Please see the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP financial measures and a description of Adjusted EBITDA in the attached financial tables.
