- OUTLOOK FOR FY 2022: BASED ON AN ASSUMED EXCHANGE RATE OF US$1.10 TO THE EURO (PREVIOUSLY US$1.15), REVENUE OF €13.5 BILLION PLUS OR MINUS €500 MILLION (PREVIOUSLY €13.0 BILLION) NOW FORECAST FOR 2022 FISCAL YEAR.

Neubiberg, Germany – 9 May 2022 – Today, Infineon Technologies AG is reporting results for the second quarter of its 2022 fiscal year (period ended 31 March 2022).

"Infineon continues to perform well within an increasingly challenging environment. Revenue and Segment Result both went up again in the second quarter. Global uncertainties, in particular the war in Ukraine and the further course of the coronavirus pandemic, are placing stress on supply chains. At the same time, demand for our products and solutions continues to exceed supply significantly," said Jochen Hanebeck, CEO of Infineon. "Decarbonization and digitalization will profoundly change the world we live in over the next decade. We are actively driving this change, while at the same time seizing these opportunities to generate profitable growth. We are closely monitoring short- and medium-term market and supply conditions in order to be able to respond in case of need."

GROUP PERFORMANCE IN SECOND QUARTER OF 2022 FISCAL YEAR
In the second quarter of the 2022 fiscal year, Group revenue grew by €139 million or 4 percent to €3,298 million, compared with €3,159 million in the previous three-month period. Revenue continued to grow in the Automotive (ATV), Industrial Power Control (IPC) and Connected Secure Systems (CSS) segments, while the Power & Sensor Systems (PSS) segment recorded a slight decrease.

The gross margin improved from 41.5 percent to 42.9 percent and the adjusted gross margin from 43.9 percent to 45.4 percent quarter on quarter.

The Segment Result increased to €761 million, compared with €717 million in the previous three-month period, with the Segment Result Margin improving slightly from 22.7 percent to 23.1 percent.

The second-quarter non-segment result was a net loss of €143 million, compared to a net loss of €100 million in the first quarter. The non-segment result for the quarter included €82 million of cost of goods sold, €50 million of selling, general and administrative expenses and €6 million of research and development expenses. In addition, net other operating expenses amounted to €5 million in the second quarter.

Operating profit for the second quarter of the 2022 fiscal year amounted to €618 million, compared with €617 million in the previous three-month period.

The financial result amounted to minus €43 million, compared with minus €45 million one quarter earlier.

The tax expense went up slightly from €117 million to €121 million quarter on quarter.

Profit from continuing operations for the second quarter of the 2022 fiscal year improved to €469 million, compared with €461 million in the previous three-month period. The second-quarter result from discontinued operations came in at €0 million, following a loss of €4 million reported for the first quarter. The profit for the period amounted to €469 million, up from €457 million one year earlier.

Basic earnings per share from continuing operations edged up from €0.35 to €0.36 quarter on quarter, while diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were unchanged at €0.35. Adjusted earnings per share3 (diluted) rose from €0.41 to €0.44 quarter on quarter.

Investments – which Infineon defines as the sum of purchases of property, plant and equipment, purchases of other intangible assets and capitalized development costs – rose to €494 million in the second quarter of the current fiscal year, compared with €408 million in the preceding three-month period. Depreciation and amortization increased from €393 million to €405 million quarter on quarter.

Free Cash Flow totaled €120 million in the second quarter, down from €378 million in the previous three-month period. Net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations amounted to €615 million, compared with €796 million one quarter earlier.

The gross cash position at the end of the second quarter stood at €3,205 million, down from €4,284 million at the end of December 2021. This was mainly due to the dividend payout in February amounting to €351 million as well as repayments of a convertible bond issued by Cypress amounting to US$382 million and a term loan amounting to US$555 million borrowed from banks in conjunction with the Cypress acquisition. The positive Free Cash Flow had an offsetting effect on the gross cash position. The debt repayments caused financial debt to decrease to €5,881 million as of 31 March 2022, compared with €6,657 million at the end of the first quarter. Net financial debt went up from €2,373 million to €2,676 million quarter on quarter.

OUTLOOK FOR THE THIRD QUARTER OF THE 2022 FISCAL YEAR
Based on an assumed exchange rate of US$1.10 to the euro, Infineon expects to generate revenue of around €3.4 billion in the third quarter of the 2022 fiscal year. ATV segment revenue is forecast to grow by a mid-single-digit percentage. Revenue growth in the IPC and PSS segments is expected to be within the low single-digit percentage range, while CSS revenue is likely to be slightly down quarter on quarter. At the forecast level of revenue, the Segment Result Margin is expected to come in at about 21 percent.

OUTLOOK FOR THE 2022 FISCAL YEAR
Based on an assumed exchange rate of US$1.10 to the euro (previously US$1.15), revenue of €13.5 billion plus or minus €500 million (previously €13.0 million) is now forecast for the 2022 fiscal year. Revenue in the ATV and CSS segments is predicted to grow at a slightly faster percentage rate than Group revenue overall year on year. The revenue growth rate in the PSS segment is forecast to be similar to that of the Group. IPC segment revenue is expected to grow by around ten percent. At the mid-point of the guided revenue range, the Segment Result Margin is set to come in now at above 22 percent (previously about 22 percent).

Investments – which Infineon defines as the sum of investments in property, plant and equipment, investments in other intangible assets and capitalized development costs – are planned at around €2.4 billion for the 2022 fiscal year as a whole. The main focus is on expanding frontend manufacturing capacities with a view to enabling Infineon to continue meeting the expected growth in customer demand in the medium term.

Depreciation and amortization are predicted to be between €1.6 billion and €1.7 billion in the 2022 fiscal year, of which approximately €400 million is attributable to depreciation and amortization from purchase price allocations arising mainly in conjunction with the acquisition of Cypress and to a lesser extent with the acquisition of International Rectifier. Free Cash Flow is now forecast at about €1.1 billion (previously about €1.0 billion).

Predictability of revenue and earnings is currently strongly limited by various geopolitical and macroeconomic factors, including the war in Ukraine and its potential effects e.g on energy supply as well as current and future measures deployed to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, particularly in Asia.

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.

All figures in this quarterly information are preliminary and unaudited.
