Himax Technologies' CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Except for the company’s full year of 2011 financials which were provided on the company’s 20-F filed with the SEC, the financial information in this conference call is unaudited and consolidated, and prepared in accordance with US GAAP. Such financial information is generated internally and has not yet been subjected to the same review and scrutiny, including internal auditing procedures and audit by independent auditors, to which the company subjects its annual consolidated financial statements, and may vary materially from the audited consolidated financial information for the same period. Any evaluation of the financial information included in this conference call should also take into account the published audited consolidated financial statements and the notes to those statements. In addition, the financial information included in this conference call is not necessarily indicative of results for any future period. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

At this time, I would now like to turn the call over to Mr. Jordan Wu, Chairman and CEO. Jordan?

Jordan Wu

Thank you, John, and thank you everyone for being with us for today’s call. In this earnings call, in addition to reporting our performance for the second quarter, I will also summarize key growth drivers and highlight milestones we have achieved so far in the first half of 2012. I will then provide our outlook for the third quarter 2012 and outline our strategic focus areas for the rest of the year. Our CFO, Jackie Chang, will provide further details on our financial performance.

We issued our second quarter earnings press release yesterday. Q2 revenues came in at $189.5 million while gross margin was 23.1% and GAAP earnings per ADS were 8.9 cents, mapped with what we stated in the preliminary results issued on July 9. These strong results reflect further progress we have made across our organization. Starting with our sales performance, second quarter revenues of $189.5 million represented 18% growth year-over-year and 13.7% increase sequentially. Strong sales in our small and medium-sized drivers and non-driver ICs remained the top contributors to our revenue growth.
