Neubiberg, Germany, 1 August 2019 - Infineon Technologies AG is today reporting results for the third quarter of the 2019 fiscal year (period ended 30 June 2019).
"Infineon remains on course. Although the global economy remains sluggish, Group revenue again grew in the third quarter," stated Dr. Reinhard Ploss, CEO of Infineon. "Demand was solid overall, despite the lack of significant growth momentum. Regardless of the ongoing unfavorable macroeconomic conditions, we still expect to achieve our targets for the current fiscal year. The underlying drivers of our future markets are very much intact and continue to provide good long-term growth prospects to Infineon."
1 The calculation for earnings per share and for adjusted earnings per share is based on unrounded figures.
2 The reconciliation of net income to adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share as well as of cost of goods sold to adjusted cost of goods sold and adjusted gross margin can be found in the quarterly information at www.infineon.com.
With effect from the beginning of 2019 fiscal year, Infineon is applying IFRS 15 (Revenue from Contracts with Customers) and IFRS 9 (Financial Instruments) using the modified retrospective approach. As a result, prior periods are not adjusted to the new accounting policies. Overall, the first-time application of these Standards has not had any material impact.
The third-quarter gross margin was 36.5 percent, compared to 37.8 percent in the second quarter. Included therein are acquisition-related depreciation and amortization as well as other expenses totaling EUR14 million, mainly relating to the previous acquisition of International Rectifier. The adjusted gross margin decreased from 38.5 percent to 37.2 percent quarter-on-quarter. Segment Result amounted to EUR317 million, compared to EUR332 million for the preceding three-month period. The Segment Result Margin went from 16.7 percent to 15.7 percent quarter-on-quarter.
The non-segment result for the three-month period under report was a net loss of EUR34 million, compared to a net loss of EUR27 million in the previous quarter. The third-quarter non-segment result included EUR14 million of cost of goods sold, EUR13 million of selling, general and administrative expenses, and EUR1 million of research and development expenses. In addition, net operating expense amounting to EUR6 million were incurred in connection with the planned acquisition of Cypress Semiconductor Corporation ("Cypress"), USA.
Operating income for the third quarter of the 2019 fiscal year amounted to EUR283 million, compared to the second-quarter figure of EUR305 million.
The financial result reported for the third quarter was a net expense of EUR31 million. This figure includes EUR22 million of costs incurred to hedge stockmarket related risks for the capital increase in connection with the financing of the planned acquisition of Cypress. In the previous quarter, the financial result had amounted to a net expense of EUR9 million.
Income tax expense for the three-month period under report decreased from EUR46 million to EUR28 million quarter-on-quarter.
Income from continuing operations went from EUR249 million to EUR224 million quarter-on-quarter. Net income for the third quarter also amounted to EUR224 million. Second-quarter net income of EUR231 million included a negative result from discontinued operations of EUR18 million. Income from discontinued operations broke even in the third quarter.
Earnings per share from continuing operations for the third quarter of the current fiscal year amounted to EUR0.20 (basic and diluted), compared to EUR0.22 in the previous quarter. Adjusted earnings per share3 (diluted) for the three-month period under report amounted to EUR0.23, compared to EUR0.24 in the second quarter.
Investments - which Infineon defines as the sum of purchases of property, plant and equipment, purchases of intangible assets, and capitalized development costs - amounted to EUR344 million in the third quarter and were thus slightly down on the preceding quarter's figure of EUR349 million. Depreciation and amortization slightly increased from EUR233 million to EUR238 million quarter-on-quarter.
Free cash flow from continuing operations improved from a negative amount of EUR137 million to a positive EUR63 million in the third quarter of the 2019 fiscal year. Net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations in the third quarter amounted to EUR396 million, up from EUR215 million in the second quarter.
The gross cash position at the end of the third quarter of the 2019 fiscal year amounted to EUR3,435 million, compared to EUR1,882 million at 31 March 2019. The net cash position improved from EUR333 million to EUR1,900 million. Both figures include the proceeds of EUR1.5 billion resulting from the capital increase executed on 18 June 2019 in connection with the planned acquisition of Cypress.
In order to hedge against exchange rate risks relating to the purchase price obligation arising in connection with the planned acquisition of Cypress, deal-contingent EUR/USD contracts were concluded. In this context, cash flow hedges were accounted for that reduced equity by EUR95 million at the end of the third quarter of the 2019 fiscal year without income statement impact.
PLANNED ACQUISITION OF CYPRESS
"The planned acquisition of Cypress is a landmark step in Infineon's strategic development. With this transaction, Infineon is entering a new dimension," commented Dr. Reinhard Ploss, CEO of Infineon. "The Infineon and Cypress portfolios complement each other ideally. The acquisition will enable us to strengthen our core power semiconductor business in the long term. With Cypress, Infineon will be able to gain an even stronger foothold in important future markets and accelerate the pace of growth."
Infineon's Supervisory Board and Cypress's Board of Directors have already approved the proposed transaction. Completion of the transaction is subject to approval by Cypress shareholders and regulatory approvals in the relevant jurisdictions as well as to customary closing conditions. The transaction is expected to close towards the end of the 2019 calendar year or early in 2020.
Initially, a small group of banks had provided binding loan commitments to finance the transaction. The ultimate financing structure is oriented towards maintaining an investment grade rating. Infineon therefore intends to finance approximately 30 percent of the transaction using equity capital. The remainder will be raised through debt instruments and available cash. In view of the equity portion, a capital increase against cash contribution was carried out on 18 June 2019. Approximately 113 million new shares were issued and net proceeds of EUR1.5 billion raised. Following this step, the remaining acquisition financing has meanwhile been successfully syndicated among a larger consortium of banks.
OUTLOOK FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER OF THE 2019 FISCAL YEAR
OUTLOOK FOR THE 2019 FISCAL YEAR
Investments in property, plant and equipment, intangible assets and capitalized development costs in the 2019 fiscal year are planned at approximately EUR1.5 billion. The figure includes expenditure for the cleanroom currently being constructed for the new 300-millimeter production facility in Villach. Depreciation and amortization will be in the region of EUR1 billion, whereby approximately EUR90 million of that amount relates to amortization resulting from purchase price allocations, primarily for International Rectifier.
3 Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share (diluted) should not be seen as a replacement or superior performance indicator, but rather as additional information to the net income and earnings per share (diluted) determined in accordance with IFRS.

HELMA Eigenheimbau: Klarer Kauf
Die HELMA Eigenheimbau hat mit dem Zugang weiterer Ferienimmobilienprojekte das potenzielle Umsatzvolumen um 150 Mio. € gesteigert. Ohnehin verfügt die Gesellschaft über einen umfangreichen Grundstücksbestand für das Bauträgergeschäft, womit in den kommenden Geschäftsjahren Umsätze in Höhe von über 1,4 Mrd. € realisiert werden könnten. Damit dürften unsere Schätzungen, in denen wir ein nachhaltiges Überschreiten der Umsatzmarke von 300 Mio. € annehmen, gut unterfüttert sein. Bei einem Kursziel von 65,00 € ist die HELMA-Aktie ein klarer Kauf.
