"I am extremely proud of our excellent financial and operating results we achieved in the quarter and for the entire year in 2012," began Mr. Jordan Wu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Himax. "Since we successfully embarked on our business transformation in the fourth quarter of 2011, we have increased our market share and advanced our technology leadership across many of our businesses. The overall margin improvement and broad-based sales growth in our small and medium-sized driver and non-driver product businesses is just two examples that our long-term strategy is unfolding as we planned. With several recent design wins with international brand and China customers and a robust new product pipeline, we remain optimistic about our outlook for 2013."

Fourth Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Breakdown by Product Line (USD in millions) (unaudited)
  Q4 2012 % Q4 2011 % % Change
Display drivers for large-size panels $77.5 40.7% $67.0 39.6% +15.8%
Display drivers for small/medium sized panels $85.4 44.8% $80.6 47.6% +6.0%
Non-driver products $27.7 14.5% $21.7 12.8% +27.6%
           
  Q4 2012 % Q3 2012 % % Change
Display drivers for large-size panels $77.5 40.7% $76.5 40.2% +1.3%
Display drivers for small/medium sized panels $85.4 44.8% $87.3 45.8% -2.2%
Non-driver products $27.7 14.5% $26.6 14.0% +4.2%

Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 12.7% year-over-year to $190.6 million and increased 0.1% sequentially. The strong sales growth was a result of market share gains and new products in all of the Company's products including large-sized and small and medium-sized panel drivers and non-driver products.

Revenues from large panel display drivers were $77.5 million, up 15.8% from a year ago and up 1.3% from the third quarter of 2012, and accounted for 40.7% of total revenues. The sequential increase was attributed to strong TV demand arising from customers' preparation for the Chinese New Year sales and China panel customers' additional capacity ramp, offset by slower demand for notebooks. Among all of Himax's large panel markets, China showed the greatest growth year-over-year and sequentially.   

Sales of small and medium-sized drivers remained solid for Himax. The Company recorded $85.4 million in small and medium-sized driver IC sales, up 6.0% from the same period in 2011 and down 2.2% from the previous quarter, and accounted for 44.8% of total revenues. The sequential decline was mainly due to the weak feature phone demand as the Company switched its focus to smartphone. China's white-box market for both smartphones and tablets also experienced some correction toward the end of the fourth quarter. Excluding feature phones, sales for small and medium-sized drivers, especially those for smartphone, tablet and automotive display applications, grew substantially for the fourth quarter 2012 from the same period last year. The Company remains bullish on the growth prospect of the small and medium-sized driver IC segment for 2013.

Revenues from Himax's non-driver businesses were $27.7 million, an increase of 27.6% from the same period last year and up 4.2% sequentially, and accounted for 14.5% of total revenues. CMOS image sensor, power management ICs and IP licensing were among the non-driver products which delivered sequential growth. Also adding to this growth were pilot shipments of the Company's LCOS microdisplays for the new and exciting head-mounted display application. The Company's fourth quarter non-driver businesses overall grew 27.6% year over year as many products experienced double-digit growth. Such products include CMOS image sensor, touch panel controller, power management IC, WLED driver, wafer level optics, IP licensing and operational amplifiers. Himax believes that its non-driver business will continue to account for an increasing percentage of its sales over time and it provides the most exciting long-term prospects for growth.

Revenues from related parties were down 6.3% from the previous quarter and up 2.2% from the same period last year. In comparison, revenues from other parties went up 3.4% quarter-over-quarter and up 18.3% year-over-year. Related party sales accounted for 31.8% of total sales in the fourth quarter, compared to 35.1% a year ago and 34.0% in the previous quarter. The related party sales as a percentage of total revenue may continue to decline as other Himax businesses lines are forecasted to outgrow the related party business.

Gross margins were 23.3% for the three months ended December 31, 2012, up 120 basis points from 22.1% in the fourth quarter of 2011 and a slight improvement from the previous quarter. This is the fifth consecutive quarter of gross margin improvement for the Company, and represents the highest quarterly gross margin for Himax since the fourth quarter of 2008. The trend in the Company's margin expansion is a direct result of a richer mix of higher margin products like those in its non-driver categories and the fast-growing small and medium-sized panel drivers. Gross margin improvement will continue to be one of Himax's key business goals going forward.

Fourth quarter 2012 GAAP operating expenses were $25.2 million, down 3.8% from $ 26.2 million a year ago and down 19.1% from $31.1 million in the previous quarter. The significant sequential decrease was primarily the result of the difference in RSU charges. The third quarter RSU expense was $6.3 million while it was just $0.5 million in the fourth quarter. In accordance with its protocol, the Company grants annual RSUs to its staff at the end of September each year, which, given all other things equal, leads to higher third quarter GAAP operating expenses compared to the other quarters of the year. Discounting the higher RSU expenses in the third quarter of 2012, the Company's Q4 operating expenses were stable compared to the previous quarter and down $1.0 million from the same quarter last year.

GAAP operating income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $19.2 million, or 10.1% of sales, up $8.1 million, or 72.0%, compared to the same period last year and up $6.1 million, or 46.1%, from $13.2 million, or 6.9% of sales, in the previous quarter. Excluding RSU expenses, operating income for the fourth quarter remained around flat compared to the previous quarter.

Reported GAAP net income was $14.3 million, or 8.4 cents per diluted ADS, for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $3.7 million, or 2.1 cents per diluted ADS, in the corresponding quarter a year ago, and $10.4 million, or 6.1 cents per diluted ADS, in the previous quarter. GAAP net income improved 285.8% compared to fourth quarter 2011 and 37.7% quarter-over-quarter. The sequential net income growth was mainly a result of the difference in RSU charges. The increase in net income of 285.8% year-over-year was partly attributable to difference in income taxes and tax credit provisions. Excluding share-based compensation, acquisition-related charges, income tax and tax credit provisions, the Company's non-GAAP adjusted pre-tax income for the fourth quarter was little changed from the previous quarter; but it still grew 95.4% versus prior year, reaching $20.2 million. The strong year-over-year growth is a result of a combination of 12.7% top line growth, a 120 bps gross margin expansion and $1.0 million operating expenses reduction. GAAP EPS per diluted ADS grew 300.0% from the same period last year and 37.7% over the previous quarter.

Non-GAAP net income in the fourth quarter was $15.3 million, or 8.9 cents per diluted ADS, up from $4.3 million, or 2.5 cents per diluted ADS, for the same period last year, and down from $16.5 million, or 9.7 cents per diluted ADS, in the previous quarter. Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter 2012 grew 252.2% over the same period last year.

Full Year 2011 Financial Results

Breakdown by Product Line (USD in millions) (unaudited)
  FY 201 2 % FY 201 1 % % Change
Display drivers for large-size $305.2 41.4% $270.4 42.7% +12.9%
Display drivers for small/medium sized panels $328.9 44.6% $282.1 44.6% +16.6%
Non-driver products $103.2 14.0% $80.5 12.7% +28.0%

Himax believes that 2012 demonstrated a successful turnaround in its business from the trough of 2011. Small and medium-sized driver ICs replaced the large panel sector to become its largest source of sales due to fast growth in the smartphone and tablet segments and the Company's leading position therein. Large panel driver IC sales also experienced double- digit growth last year, benefiting from the growth in China market where mainland Chinese manufactures continue to expand capacity. Himax's non-driver products delivered the strongest growth last year due to new product launches and project wins. The Company expects its non-driver products to outgrow driver ICs in the years ahead.

Revenues totaled $737.3 million in 2012, representing a 16.5% increase year over year. The growth was a result of increasing sales in all product segments.

Small and medium-sized drivers grew 16.6% year over year, representing 44.6% of total revenues. Himax sales into the feature phone segment declined in 2012 as they switched their focus to smartphone applications. Excluding feature phone sales, Himax's small-and medium sized drivers grew over 50% year over year. The performance in this area last year was the result of the Company expanding its reach to end customers across China, Korea, and the US. This growth momentum is expected to continue through 2013.

Revenues from large panel display drivers grew 12.9% year-over-year, representing 41.4% of the Company's total revenues as compared to 42.7% in 2011. The growth was mainly driven by the sales to Chinese customers and led to a gain in market share in the large panel segment.

Non-driver products grew 28.0% year over year, representing 14.0% of total sales for Himax, as compared to 12.7% a year ago. The Company's timing controller IC, touch panel controller, power management ICs, WLED drivers, ASIC service, IP licensing and wafer level optics all delivered strong growth in 2012. The Company believes that this result demonstrates its strong R&D capability and its commitment to diversify its product portfolio.

Revenues from related parties were down $6.3 million, or 2.4%, from the previous year. In comparison and excluding related party sales, revenues increased $110.5 million, or 29.5%, year-over-year. Related party sales accounted for 34.2% of total sales in 2012, compared to 40.8% a year ago.

Gross margin in 2012 was 23.1%, a 330 basis-point improvement, from 19.8% in 2011. The significant margin improvement is a result of the Company's product diversification and mix. Management remains committed to drive margins higher.

GAAP operating expenses were $103.5 million for the twelve months of 2012, down $5.5 million, or 5.0% from the same period 2011. Excluding the bad debt collection from SVA-NEC in 2011 and higher restricted stock unit expenses in 2012, full year non-GAAP operating expenses were $97.2 million, down $13.3 million, or 12.0% from 2011. The significant reduction was due to a better overall expense control and reduced ramp-up costs for the production of WLO at the Company's in-house manufacturing facility.

Operating income was $67.1 million, or 9.1% of sales, as compared to $16.6 million, or 2.6% of sales, for 2011, representing 303.8% increase year over year.

GAAP net income for the twelve months 2012 was $51.2 million, or 30 cents per diluted ADS, up from $10.7 million, or 6.1 cents per diluted ADS, for the same period last year. The significant improvement in GAAP net income was a result of its overall revenue growth of 16.5%, gross margin improvement to 23.1% in 2012 from 19.8% in 2011 and operating expense reduction of $5.5 million. 2012 GAAP net income grew 377.9% and GAAP EPS per diluted ADS grew 391.8% year-over-year.

Non-GAAP net income for 2012 was $59.9 million, or 35.1 cents per diluted ADS, up from $18.3 million, or 10.3 cents per diluted ADS, for 2011. Non-GAAP net income for 2012 grew 227.3% and non-GAAP EPS per diluted ADS grew 240.8% over 2011.

The Company had $138.9 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities available for sale on December 31, 2012, compared to $89.0 million on September 30, 2012 and $106.3 million as of December 31, 2011. Additionally, restricted cash balance was $73.0 million at the end of December 2012, as compared to $84.2 million at the end of December 2011.

Net cash inflow from operating activities for full year 2012 was $52.2 million, an increase of 20.1% from $43.4 million in 2011. The improvement in cash from operations was a result of higher net income and better working capital management. Himax invested $6.6 million on capital expenditures in 2012, down substantially from $18.9 million spent in 2011.

The Company paid an annual dividend of 6.3 cents per ADS in July 2012, equal to 100% of its 2011 net income.
