Revenue for the three months ended June 29, 2008 was $194.7 million, compared to $194.1 million in the second quarter of 2007.
Sang Park, Chairman and CEO of MagnaChip Semiconductor, commented, "Despite challenging market conditions in Q2, revenue came in at $194.7 million, a slight increase as compared to the second quarter of 2007. We achieved this result even though demand was lower than expected as our customers tightened their inventory control due to the current uncertain economic environment. We recorded our first revenues in our power solutions business, which we launched less than one year ago. In our display and imaging solutions business we continued to launch new products, such as display driver ICs for mid-sized panels, and in our SMS business, we added new accounts and specialty technologies. Overall, we are confident with our progress and trajectory as we enter the second half of 2008."
Gross margin was $49.2 million or 25.2% of revenue for the quarter ended June 29, 2008, compared to $27.8 million or 14.3% of revenue for the second quarter of 2007.
Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2008 were $58.5 million or 30.1% of revenue, compared to $70.1 million or 36.1% of revenue for the second quarter of 2007 which included $13.4 million special charges. Excluding special charges, operating expenses for the second quarter of 2007 were $56.8 million or 29.3% of revenue.
Operating loss was $9.4 million during the second quarter, compared to an operating loss of $42.4 million in the prior year quarter.
Net interest expense for the second quarter of 2008 was $15.8 million, compared to $15.0 million in the second quarter of 2007.
Net loss for the three months ended June 29, 2008 was $59.6 million, compared to a net loss of $45.3 million in the second quarter of 2007. The net loss results were negatively impacted by a foreign currency loss of $31.1 million in the second quarter of 2008, compared to a foreign currency gain of $13.9 million in the second quarter of 2007. A substantial portion of this net foreign currency loss resulted from a non-cash translation loss recorded for intercompany borrowings at our Korea subsidiary that are denominated in U.S. dollars.
Robert Krakauer, President and CFO of MagnaChip Semiconductor, said, "We continued to make progress in the second quarter of 2008. In spite of the tough environment, we recorded a gross margin of over 25%, and we remain focused on improving profitability as a corporate priority. Though our markets continue to be slower than expected, we believe our new products and customer relationships position us well for performance improvement throughout 2008."
