Himax Technologies, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Himax experienced second quarter growth in the large panel business mainly due to the growth from panel manufacturer customers in China. This growth trend in China will continue through 2012 as a number of Chinese large panel manufacturers have expanded their capacity and increased their capacity utilization. Large panel display drivers remain one of the Company's long-term focuses.

Himax's non-driver products have grown quickly as a result of growth in several product areas. The Company has secured new design wins for new sensor products in conjunction with the launch of Windows 8 with a number of tier-one notebook names. 

Himax has also been able to secure additional design wins for the Company's multi-finger captive touch panel controller and expects to increase shipment volumes for this product line in the third and fourth quarter of the year. Himax believes touch panel controller is a long-term growth engine for Himax.

Himax is also working with several top-tier customers to develop new applications using its LCOS panels. The Company witnessed a change in the application of the technology in the past year away from embedded pico-projector in handphones in favor of head-mounted displays. Himax remains excited on the prospects for this technology in the future as it believes its technology in head-mounted displays application is superior to other competing technologies.

For the Company's new business from the comprehensive monitor and projector scaler product line and tailor-made video processing IC solutions and silicon IP services, Himax is extremely encouraged by some early successes by the engagement of several top-tier brand customers who need such ICs to create differentiation for their end products.

The Company will release its third quarter 2012 guidance before the market opens on August 9, 2012. The management team will provide additional insight to market trends for the third quarter on its second quarter conference call.
