HSINCHU, Nov. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES INC. ("ChipMOS" or the "Company") (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 8150 and NASDAQ: IMOS), an industry leading provider of outsourced semiconductor assembly and test services ("OSAT"), today reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019. All U.S. dollar figures cited in this press release are based on the exchange rate of NT$31.05 against US$1.00 as of September 30, 2019.

All the figures were prepared in accordance with Taiwan-International Financial Reporting Standards ("Taiwan-IFRS").

Revenue for the third quarter of 2019 was NT$5,399.1 million or US$173.9 million, an increase of 10.1% from NT$4,905.3 million or US$158.0 million in the second quarter of 2019 and an increase of 7.9% from NT$5,005.2 million or US$161.2 million for the same period in 2018.

Net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company for the third quarter of 2019 was NT$585.9 million or US$18.9 million, and NT$0.81 or US$0.03 per basic common share, as compared to net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company for the second quarter of 2019 of NT$1,274.6 million or US$41.0 million, and NT$1.75 or US$0.06 per basic common share, and compared to net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company in the third quarter of 2018 of NT$439.6 million or US$14.2 million, and NT$0.56 or US$0.02 per basic common share.  Net earnings for the third quarter of 2019 were US$0.52 per basic ADS, compared to US$1.13 per basic ADS for the second quarter of 2019 and US$0.36 per basic ADS in the third quarter of 2018. 

S.J. Cheng, Chairman and President of ChipMOS, said, "Strength in our core business and continued execution is helped us drive double digit revenue growth with a significant gross margin improvement.  We achieved 10.1% revenue growth compared to Q2 and improved our gross margin to 21.4% from 17.1% over the same period.  Revenue in our Flash business grew 22.5% in Q3 from Q2, led by increased demand from the industrial and automotive end markets and higher demand from new module house customers.   We also benefitted from strong demand in our 12" gold bump and TDDI businesses with increasing TDDI product penetration of the HD panel segment for smartphones given higher content per unit in newer phones.  We did experience some softness at the end of the quarter in demand related to the TV market, which we expect to more than offset in order to achieve stable revenue and margins over the near-term.  Adding to our confidence, high-end wafer test capacity has been tightening, led by increasing OLED panel driver IC demand, and we are benefitting from higher efficiency programs including increased usage of AI and automation at our facilities."

Silvia Su, Vice President of Finance and Accounting, commented, "We are pleased with the positive operating leverage in our business as we focus on expansion of our higher margin business, continued operating expense control and controlled CapEx. We generated US$123.8 million in cash from operating activities in the third quarter compared to US$87.5 million in the year ago period.  While our CapEx level has been tracking below 2018 for most of 2019, we made the strategic decision to invest US$59.5 million in CapEx in the third quarter to expand capacity to meet current and expected higher customer demand levels, mainly for DDIC test and 12" fine pitch COF.  Our focus on profitability and operating cash flow expansion also allowed us to reward investors with our latest cash dividend, NT$1.2 per common share or US$0.764 per ADS, which was distributed on August 30th to common stock holders and on September 9th to ADS holders.  We remain focused on building further value for the company and its shareholders."

About Non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ( " Non-GAAP " ) Financial Measures
To supplement the consolidated financial results presented in accordance with the Taiwan-IFRS, ChipMOS uses non-GAAP free cash flow, non-GAAP earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") and non-GAAP net debt to equity ratio in this press release. The non-GAAP free cash flow represents operating profit plus depreciation, amortization and interest income and less capital expenditures, interest expense, income tax expense and dividend. The non-GAAP EBITDA represents operating profit plus depreciation and amortization. The non-GAAP net debt to equity ratio represents the ratio of net debt, the sum of debt less cash and cash equivalent, divided by equity attributable to equity holders of the Company.  These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently.

The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with the Taiwan-IFRS.

ChipMOS considers the use of non-GAAP free cash flow, non-GAAP EBITDA and non-GAAP net debt to equity ratio provides useful information to management to manage the Company's business and make financial and operational decisions and also to the investors to understand and evaluate the Company's business and operating performance. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please refer to the table captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures to the Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures" in this press release.
