HSINCHU, Taiwan, May 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES INC. ("ChipMOS" or the "Company") (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 8150 and NASDAQ: IMOS), an industry leading provider of outsourced semiconductor assembly and test services ("OSAT"), today reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020. All U.S. dollar figures cited in this press release are based on the exchange rate of NT$30.25 against US$1.00 as of March 31, 2020.

All the figures were prepared in accordance with Taiwan-International Financial Reporting Standards ("Taiwan-IFRS").

Revenue for the first quarter of 2020 was NT$5,586.8 million or US$184.7 million, an increase of 0.3% from NT$5,571.5 million or US$184.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and an increase of 25.2% from NT$4,462.0 million or US$147.5 million for the same period in 2019. The first quarter of 2020 revenue level represents a five year high for the Company.

Net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company for the first quarter of 2020 was NT$712.7 million or US$23.6 million, and NT$0.98 or US$0.03 per basic common share, as compared to NT$530.0 million or US$17.5 million, and NT$0.73 or US$0.02 per basic common share in the fourth quarter of 2019, and NT$193.7 million or US$6.4 million, and NT$0.27 or US$0.01 per basic common share in the first quarter of 2019. Net earnings for the first quarter of 2020 were US$0.65 per basic ADS, compared to US$0.48 per basic ADS for the fourth quarter of 2019 and US$0.18 per basic ADS in the first quarter of 2019. 

S.J. Cheng, Chairman and President of ChipMOS, said, "First quarter 2020 revenue increased 25.2% over 1Q19 and was up 0.3% over 4Q19 compared to the seasonal industry decline from Q4 to Q1 due to fewer working days. We are benefitting from DRAM, NOR flash and 8"COF demand growth from 5G buildouts and higher work and school from home demand. Our continued focus on driving profitable segments of our business helped us significantly increase gross margin to 22.7% compared to 15.0% in 1Q19, while flattish with 4Q19 despite fewer working days due to Chinese New Year closures and the COVID-19 virus. We implemented comprehensive measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees as we followed guidelines and regulations provided by The Taiwan Centers for Disease Controls (CDC) and other regulatory agencies. As a result of our efforts, we were able to restart all manufacturing facilities on schedule after the planned New Year's Holiday closure with no additional delays or disruptions. We have worked closely with our customers and supply chain, allowing us to maintain full inventory levels to ensure uninterrupted service to customers. This helped us increase our overall utilization level to 79% in 1Q20 from 70% in 1Q19 and 76% in 4Q19, with major utilization gains in both our Assembly and Bumping production lines."

Silvia Su, Vice President of Finance and Accounting, commented, "We improved all major financial metrics in the first quarter as we continue to focus on profitability and cash generation. CapEx was US$37.6 million in the first quarter down from US$56.3 million in 4Q19. The majority of CapEx was invested in expanding our DDIC capacity to meet existing customer demand levels for higher OLED wafer test capacity. We are lowering our CapEx investments where possible as we focus on improvements through automation, while maintaining a strong financial position and liquidity in order to maintain our leading market position in the uncertain market. Actions we previously took to reduce our operating expenses, while increasing our cash balance and liquidity, will allow us to fully support customers and maintain our long-term growth strategy."

These forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as 'believes,' 'expects,' 'anticipates,' 'projects,' 'intends,' 'should,' 'seeks,' 'estimates,' 'future' or similar expressions or by discussion of, among other things, strategy, goals, plans or intentions. These statements may include financial projections and estimates and their underlying assumptions, statements regarding plans, objectives and expectations with respect to future operations, products and services, and statements regarding future performance.

About Non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("Non-GAAP") Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial results presented in accordance with the Taiwan-IFRS, ChipMOS uses non-GAAP free cash flow, non-GAAP earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") and non-GAAP net debt to equity ratio in this press release. The non-GAAP free cash flow represents operating profit plus depreciation, amortization and interest income and less capital expenditures, interest expense, income tax expense and dividend. The non-GAAP EBITDA represents operating profit plus depreciation and amortization. The non-GAAP net debt to equity ratio represents the ratio of net debt, the sum of debt less cash and cash equivalent, divided by equity attributable to equity holders of the Company.  These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently.

The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with the Taiwan-IFRS.

ChipMOS considers the use of non-GAAP free cash flow, non-GAAP EBITDA and non-GAAP net debt to equity ratio provides useful information to management to manage the Company's business and make financial and operational decisions and also to the investors to understand and evaluate the Company's business and operating performance. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please refer to the table captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures to the Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures" in this press release.
