Neubiberg, 3 August 2022 – Today, Infineon Technologies AG is reporting results for the third quarter of its 2022 fiscal year (period ended 30 June 2022).

 

"In a difficult macroeconomic climate, Infineon continues to be well on the way thanks to its differentiating portfolio," said Jochen Hanebeck, Chief Executive Officer of Infineon. "Increases in energy costs, raw material prices and interest rates, the continuing pandemic and geopolitical uncertainties are all impeding economic growth. In some consumer-oriented end markets demand has recently weakened. We are keeping a close eye on market developments and are prepared to act swiftly. However, the structural drivers decarbonization and digitalization continue to cause high demand for semiconductors. The global trend towards electromobility persists. Many countries are now seeking to secure independent energy supplies, which will further accelerate the expansion of renewable energy. We are also benefiting from continuing high levels of investment in communications infrastructure, data centers and cloud computing.”

Depreciation and amortization in the third quarter was €422 million, compared with €405 million in the second quarter of the 2022 fiscal year.

Net financial debt decreased from €2,676 million at the end of the second quarter to €2,485 million at the end of the third quarter.

 

OUTLOOK FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER OF THE 2022 FISCAL YEAR

Based on an assumed exchange rate of US$1.05 to the euro, Infineon expects to generate revenue of around €3.9 billion in the fourth quarter of the 2022 fiscal year. This is equivalent to 8 percent growth compared with the third quarter of the current fiscal year. The rate of growth in the IPC segment should be significantly higher than this. In the ATV and PSS segments, revenue is expected to grow at around the average rate for the Group, while revenue growth in the CSS segment is expected to be within a low single-digit percentage range. At the forecast level of revenue, the Segment Result Margin is expected to be about 25 percent.

 

OUTLOOK FOR THE 2022 FISCAL YEAR

Based on the revenue that is being forecast for the fourth quarter, the revenue forecast for the full 2022 fiscal year stands at around €14 billion (compared with the previous forecast of €13.5 billion. About €140 million of the expected increase will come from the stronger US dollar). When compared with the prior fiscal year, revenue in the ATV segment is expected to grow at a higher percentage rate than the average growth rate for the Group. The annual revenue growth rate in the CSS segment should be around the average growth rate for the Group, while the PSS segment should grow at a slightly lower rate than the Group average. IPC’s revenue growth is expected to be at about 15 percent. Based on the forecast revenue for the full fiscal year of now around €14 billion, the Segment Result Margin is expected to exceed 23 percent, compared to above 22 percent in the previous forecast.

 

Investments – which Infineon defines as the sum of investments in property, plant and equipment, investments in other intangible assets and capitalized development costs – of around €2.4 billion are planned for the full 2022 fiscal year. The main focus is on expanding frontend manufacturing capacities to enable Infineon to continue to meet 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 from the acquisition of Cypress and to a lesser extent from the acquisition of International Rectifier. Free Cash Flow is now forecast to be about €1.4 billion (previously about €1.1 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.
