Infineon Show Strong First Quarter Profitability

News

▪ Q1 FY 2018: Revenue of €1,775 million; Segment Result €283 million; Segment Result Margin 15.9 percent; earnings per share €0.18 (basic and diluted); adjusted earnings per share €0.20 (diluted); gross margin 36.4 percent, adjusted gross margin 37.4 percent

â–ª Outlook for FY 2018: Only due to the weaker US$ based on an assumed exchange rate of US$ 1.25 to the euro for the remainder of the fiscal year, year on-year revenue growth of about 5 percent (plus or minus 2 percentage points) and Segment Result Margin of 16,5 percent at mid-point of revenue guidance

â–ª Outlook for Q2 FY 2018: quarter-on-quarter revenue growth of 4 percent (plus or minus 2 percentage points) and Segment Result Margin of 16 percent at mid-point of revenue guidance

Infineon Technologies has reported its results for the first quarter of the 2018 fiscal year (period ended 31 December 2017)

"Infineon has made a strong start to the new fiscal year," stated Dr. Reinhard Ploss, CEO of Infineon. "Earnings and margin were better than forecast "“ despite the expected

slight seasonal dip in revenues. The market for electro-mobility continues to drive growth. Infineon offers solutions for the entire range of drivetrain systems from hybrid to pure electric vehicles. Moreover, we continue to benefit from excellent market conditions, which are driving high demand for power components used in applications across the board, such as solar power plants, especially in China, and also for data centers. Operationally we are fully on track. We could still defy the headwind from the weaker US$ in the fiscal first quarter. Adjusted for the depreciation of the US$ from 1.15 to 1.25, our revenue momentum is unchanged, in terms of the Segment Result Margin

even slightly better. However, we are unable to compensate a further depreciation of the US$ by another 8 percentage points, which negatively affects more than half of our revenues. As such, we currency-adjusted our outlook accordingly."

Review of Group financials for the first quarter of the 2018 fiscal year

Compared to the preceding quarter, revenue declined by 2 percent to €1,775 million in the first quarter of the 2018 fiscal year. Revenue in the previous quarter had amounted to €1,820 million. Compared to the first quarter of the 2017 fiscal year, revenues increased by 8 percent. The Industrial Power Control (IPC), Power Management & Multimarket (PMM) and Chip Card & Security (CCS) segments all reported seasonal decreases, whereas the Automotive segment (ATV) recorded seasonally atypical revenue growth in line with expectations.

The gross margin in the first quarter came in at 36.4 percent, compared to 37.5 percent in the previous quarter. These figures include acquisition-related depreciation and amortization as well as other expenses attributable to the International Rectifier acquisition totaling €17 million. The adjusted gross margin came in at 37.4 percent, compared with 38.6 percent in the preceding quarter.

The first-quarter Segment Result amounted to €283 million, compared to €328 million in the fourth quarter of the previous fiscal year, with the Segment Result Margin declining from 18.0 percent to 15.9 percent.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
