Actions Semiconductor's CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Creating long-term shareholder value remains a top priority for the company. In the second quarter we spent approximately $1.4 million on the share repurchase program, compared with $1.0 million in the first quarter. As of June 30, 2012, the company had invested a total of approximately $43.9 million in the program, representing approximately 19.1 million ADS shares, which is close to the previously approved 20 million ADS cap of the existing buyback program. Therefore we are pleased to announce that today the Board approved an increase of 10 million ADS to the existing buyback program.

During the second quarter, we faced the additional headwind of RMB exchange rate volatility and recorded an exchange rate loss. Although we anticipate continued RMB volatility for the remainder of the year, by leveraging the RMB-denominated yields, we still enjoy a high return from our RMB-denominated assets.

And now for a detailed look at each category. Portable audio, during the second quarter we maintained our leading positions in the mainstream audio boom box market category. Volume shipments of our audio boom box products increased in the second quarter. We continue to secure design wins for our boom box products with large branded customers in China and we are beginning to penetrating international branded customers. In the second quarter, our sales to the mainstream segment of the MP3 market serving the non-display, mono-display and small color display media products continued to maintain the leading position in the market share of this category.

Portable video, overall shipments in the video category including our standard definition D1 and high-definition HD PMP and gaming products decreased in the second quarter as the market moved towards adoption of tablets. Video continues to be a key category for Actions, and as we move through the second half of 2012, we are focused on increasing our contributions from our newer advanced products in the video category.
