Himax Updates Second Quarter 2010 Revenue Guidance

TAINAN, Taiwan, July 7, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Himax Technologies, Inc. ("Himax" or "Company") (Nasdaq:HIMX) today updated its previously announced second quarter 2010 revenue guidance.

The Company now expects revenue to increase approximately 7% sequentially, from the $175.5 million posted in the first quarter 2010. The revision is primarily due to capacity tightness throughout the supply chain and a change in certain customers' demand. Himax's second quarter 2010 gross margin and GAAP earnings per ADS expectations remain the same.

Previous guidance provided on May 6, 2010 had forecast second quarter 2010 revenues to increase by 10-15% quarter over quarter, with gross margin to remain flat sequentially, and GAAP earnings per ADS to be in the range of $0.06 - $0.08.
