Fairchild Semiconductor Reports Results For The Second Quarter 2013

Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS), a leading global supplier of power semiconductors, today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. Fairchild reported second quarter sales of $356.5 million, up 4 percent from the prior quarter and 1 percent lower than the second quarter of 2012.

Fairchild reported a second quarter net loss of $7.5 million or $0.06 per diluted share compared to a net loss of $0.5 million or $0.00 per diluted share in the prior quarter and net income of $11.9 million or $0.09 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2012. Gross margin was 29.1 percent compared to 26.9 percent in the prior quarter and 32.6 percent in the year-ago quarter.

Fairchild reported second quarter adjusted gross margin of 29.8 percent, up 200 basis points from the prior quarter and 280 basis points lower than the second quarter of 2012. Adjusted gross margin excludes accelerated depreciation related to a line closure. Adjusted net income was $1.7 million or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.0 million or $0.02 per diluted share in the prior quarter and net income of $17.6 million or $0.14 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2012. See the Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income exhibit included in this press release for more details on the other adjustment items.

“We grew sales 4 percent sequentially in the second quarter and 7 percent through the first half of 2013,” said Mark Thompson, Fairchild’s chairman and CEO. “Our high voltage product sales supporting the industrial and appliance markets were up 15 percent sequentially. We posted record quarterly sales for our products serving the automotive market. Power conversion products also recorded solid sales growth in the second quarter. We saw some incremental demand weakness from the notebook PC market and at a couple of large mobile customers that impacted Q2 sales and our backlog heading into the third quarter. We expect the weakness in notebooks to persist but have limited impact on our future results now that it accounts for less than 3 percent of total sales. Mobile sales are expected to increase in the third quarter due largely to one major customer and continued growth from our Chinese customers. Our guidance reflects some conservatism given how difficult it has been for our customers to forecast actual mobile demand.”
