Q2-22 Revenue of € 214.0 Million and Net Income of € 75.6 Million Up 5.7% and 12.0%, Respectively, vs. Q1-22

H1-22 Revenue and Net Income Up 12.8% and 9.2%, Respectively, vs. H1-21

New € 300 Million Share Repurchase Program

DUIVEN, The Netherlands, July 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BE Semiconductor Industries N.V. (the “Company” or “Besi”) (Euronext Amsterdam: BESI; OTC markets: BESIY), a leading manufacturer of assembly equipment for the semiconductor industry, today announced its results for the second quarter and first half year ended June 30, 2022.

Key Highlights Q2-22

  • Revenue of € 214.0 million rose 5.7% vs. Q1-22 due primarily to increased shipments for high-end mobile applications. Down 5.4% vs. Q2-21 due to lower demand for high-end smartphones and from Chinese subcontractors partially offset by strength in automotive and computing applications

  • Orders of € 153.1 million down 25.2% vs. Q1-22 principally as a result of lower orders for high-end mobile and high performance computing applications and by Asian subcontractors partially offset by continued strength for automotive end-user markets. Down 23.5% vs. Q2-21 primarily due to lower bookings by Chinese subcontractors and, to a lesser extent, decreased orders for high performance computing applications

  • Gross margin of 61.0% grew 0.9 points vs. Q1-22 due to favorable forex influences and more favorable product mix. Down 1.1 points vs. Q2-21

  • Net income of € 75.6 million rose 12.0% vs. Q1-22 while net margins increased to 35.4% vs. 33.4% due to higher revenue and gross margins and lower than anticipated expense development. Vs. Q2-21, net income declined 19.1% due to lower revenue and gross margins combined with higher R&D spending

Key Highlights H1-22

  • Revenue of € 416.4 million rose 12.8% vs. H1-21 reflecting strong demand for Besi’s computing and automotive end-user markets. Growth partially offset by reduced demand for high-end smartphones as well as lower shipments for mobile handsets and mainstream electronics by Chinese subcontractors

  • Orders of € 357.9 million declined 32.1% vs. H1-21 due to less favorable market conditions, lower orders for high-end smartphones post new introductions in 2021 and decreased demand from Chinese subcontractors

  • Gross margin of 60.5% equal to H1-21

  • Net income of € 143.2 million increased € 12.1 million, or 9.2%, vs. H1-21 primarily due to higher revenue levels despite 46.8% increase in R&D spending

  • Net cash grew 37.4% vs. Q2-21 to reach € 284.0 million. Total cash of € 601.6 million at end of Q2-22

  • Current € 185 million share repurchase program to be completed by July 31, 2022. New € 300 million program to begin August 1, 2022, representing approximately 7.5% of shares outstanding

Outlook

  • Q3-22 revenue estimated to decrease by approximately 20-30% vs. Q2-22 reflecting weaker market conditions and seasonal trends. Gross margin anticipated to remain between 60-62%

Richard W. Blickman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Besi, commented:
“Besi reported solid first half year results with revenue and net income of € 416.4 million and € 143.2 million increasing by 12.8% and 9.2%, respectively, versus H1-21. Revenue development this first half year was influenced by a number of important market trends. On the positive side, it reflected ongoing strength for Besi’s computing and automotive end-user markets continuing favorable trends from H2-21. Such strength was partially offset by reduced demand for high-end smartphones following a large capacity build in 2021. It also reflected a 31.4% decrease in revenue from Chinese customers primarily associated with reduced shipments to subcontractors for mobile handsets and mainstream electronics applications due to overcapacity and Covid-19 related lockdowns. Net income growth in H1-22 benefitted from higher revenue levels, stable gross margins of 60.5% and cost control efforts which enabled us to keep operating expense margins relatively flat despite funding a 46.8% increase in R&D spending associated with new wafer level product development.

Our liquidity position continued to improve at June 30, 2022 with net cash of € 284.0 million and total cash and deposits of € 601.6 million increasing 37.4% and 17.6%, respectively, versus June 30, 2021. Such increases occurred despite the distribution of € 305.7 million to shareholders in H1-22 in the form of dividends and share repurchases. Given continued strong cash flow generation and current market conditions, we intend to complete the current € 185 million share repurchase program by July 31, 2022. Beginning August 1, 2022, we intend to initiate a new € 300 million program representing approximately 7.5% of current shares outstanding with a completion date of October 2023. Repurchases under this new program will help reduce dilution related to Besi’s Convertible Notes outstanding and issuances under employee stock plans.

For the quarter, Besi’s revenue of € 214.0 million and net income of € 75.6 million grew by 5.7% and 12.0%, respectively, versus Q1-22. Sequential revenue and profit growth were primarily due to increased shipments for high-end smartphones, an increase of gross margins to 61.0% due to a more favorable product mix, a stronger dollar and a 5.0% reduction in operating expenses. However, orders of € 153.1 million decreased by 25.2% versus Q1-22 as industry conditions weakened, global GDP growth rates decelerated and customer caution increased. In particular, they reflected lower bookings for high-end mobile and high performance computing applications as well as lower orders by Asian subcontractors partially offset by continued strength in demand for automotive end-user markets. Of note, we received three orders for Besi’s new embedded bridge die attach system in H1-22 reflecting progress in the build out of our wafer level assembly portfolio. In addition, Besi’s backlog of € 275 million at June 30, 2022 remained at higher than typical levels reflecting ongoing supply chain issues, selective pre ordering by customers and, to a lesser extent, pushouts by some Asian subcontractors given changing market conditions.

Whether ​current market​ softness is a temporary pause or more prolonged in duration is difficult to tell ​at present ​given the many conflicting economic, geopolitical and industry cross currents. For Q3-22, we estimate that revenue will decrease by 20-30% versus Q2-22 reflecting current market conditions and seasonal trends. However, Besi’s gross margin is expected to remain in the 60-62% range due to the flexibility of our production model and timely operational actions taken. In this regard, we reduced temporary production headcount approximately 16% in the latter half of the quarter to better align production with order trends. Further, operating expenses are anticipated to decrease by 10-15% versus Q2-22 principally related to lower revenue levels.

We are accelerating investment in Besi’s future, particularly for our hybrid bonding and wafer level assembly portfolio as the long-term drivers of our business remain intact and sub 10 nanometer device innovation continues apace. As such, we are deploying greater resources to meet hybrid bonding goals, introducing new wafer level assembly systems, adding development and support personnel and taking occupancy of a new 125,000 square foot leased facility in Malaysia in Q3-22 which should lessen capacity constraints for our most advanced systems.”

Q2-22 revenue of € 214.0 million increased 5.7% versus Q1-22 primarily due to increased shipments for high-end mobile applications. Versus Q2-21, revenue decreased by 5.4% as a result of significantly lower demand for high-end smartphones post new product introductions in 2021 as well as lower demand for Chinese handset and mainstream electronics applications due to overcapacity and Covid-19 related lockdowns. This decrease was partially offset by strong revenue growth for both Besi’s computing and automotive end-user markets including shipments of hybrid bonding systems to multiple customers.

Orders of € 153.1 million decreased 25.2% versus Q1-22 due primarily to lower orders for high-end mobile and high performance computing applications as well as lower orders by Asian subcontractors partially offset by continued strength in demand for automotive end-user markets. Versus Q2-21, orders decreased by 23.5% primarily due to significantly lower demand by Chinese subcontractors and, to a lesser extent, decreased orders for high performance computing applications. Per customer type, IDM orders decreased € 10.3 million, or 10.6%, versus Q1-22 and represented 57% of total orders for the period. Subcontractor orders decreased by € 41.4 million, or 38.4%, versus Q1-22 and represented 43% of total orders.

Besi’s gross margin increased to 61.0% in Q2-22, an increase of 0.9 points versus Q1-22 primarily due to forex benefits from an increase in the USD versus the euro and a more favorable product mix. Gross margin decreased by 1.1 points as compared to Q2-21 due to a less favorable product mix.

Q2-22 operating expenses declined by € 2.0 million, or 5.0%, versus Q1-22 principally due to a € 5.0 million reduction in share-based compensation expense partially offset by increased variable sales related, travel and R&D personnel costs. Operating expenses increased by € 4.3 million, or 12.8% versus Q2-21 primarily due to increased R&D spending for next generation wafer level assembly systems. As a percentage of revenue, operating expenses were 17.7% in Q2-22 versus 19.7% in Q1-22 and 14.9% in Q2-21.

Q2-22 financial expense, net increased by € 2.1 million versus Q1-22 due to increased interest expense from the issuance of € 175 million of 1.875% Convertible Notes due 2029 in March 2022, increased hedging expenses and negative forex effects.

H1-22 revenue of € 416.4 million rose 12.8% reflecting strong demand for Besi’s computing and automotive end-user markets including increased shipments of hybrid bonding systems. Growth was partially offset by significantly decreased demand for high-end smartphones, decreased shipments for mobile handsets and mainstream electronics applications to Chinese subcontractors and some pushouts of system deliveries due to softening industry conditions. Of note, revenue from Chinese customers decreased by € 42.1 million, or 31.4%, year-over-year and decreased as a percentage of revenue from 36.3% in H1-21 to 22.1% in H1-22.

Orders of € 357.9 million decreased by 32.1% versus H1-21 due to less favorable market conditions post the significant assembly capacity build over the past two years. In particular, the decrease reflected lower orders for high-end smartphones post new product introductions in 2021 and decreased demand from Chinese subcontractors. IDM and subcontractor orders represented 51% and 49%, respectively, of H1-22 orders versus 46% and 54%, respectively, in H1-21.

Besi’s H1-22 net income of € 143.2 million grew by € 12.1 million, or 9.2%, versus H1-21 due primarily to higher revenue levels. Operating and net margins were roughly equal in each respective period as we successfully controlled overhead growth while increasing development spending by 46.8% in support of wafer level R&D programs.

At the end of Q2-22, Besi had a strong liquidity position with total cash and deposits aggregating € 601.6 million, an increase of 17.6% versus Q2-21. Versus Q1-22, total cash and deposits decreased by € 95.0 million versus Q1-22 due primarily to (i) the payment of € 269.5 million in cash dividends to shareholders, (ii) € 22.2 million of share repurchases and (iii) € 5.2 million of capitalized development spending which was partially offset by (i) € 172.2 million net proceeds received from the issuance of Besi’s 1.875% Convertible Notes due 2029 and (ii) cash flow from operations of € 27.6 million. Net cash of € 284.0 million at quarter end increased by € 77.3 million, or 37.4%, versus June 30, 2021.

During Q2-22, € 125.6 million of Besi’s 0.50% Convertible Notes due 2024 were converted into shares. As a result, total shares outstanding increased to approximately 80.6 million at quarter end, net of treasury shares held. At June 30, 2022, the total principal amount of Besi’s Convertible Notes was € 359.9 million.

Share Repurchase Activity
During the quarter, Besi repurchased 401,806 of its ordinary shares at an average price of € 55.04 per share for a total of € 22.2 million. Cumulatively, as of June 30, 2022, approximately 4.8 million shares have been purchased under the current € 185 million share repurchase program at an average price of € 35.38 per share for a total of € 171.0 million. As of such date, Besi held approximately 550,000 shares in treasury, equal to 0.7% of its shares outstanding. Besi intends to fully complete the current program by July 31, 2022.

New € 300 Million Share Repurchase Program
A new € 300 million share repurchase program will be initiated effective August 1, 2022. The program is aimed at general capital reduction purposes and to help offset dilution related to Besi’s Convertible Notes and shares issued under employee stock plans. It will be funded using Besi’s available cash resources, is expected to be completed by October 2023 and will represent approximately 7.5% of Besi’s outstanding shares based on Besi’s closing share price on July 20, 2022. At present, Besi has authority until October 29, 2023 to purchase up to 10% of its shares issued, or 8.1 million shares.

The new share repurchase program will be executed in accordance with industry best practices and in compliance with European buyback rules and regulations and may be suspended or discontinued at any time. The program will be managed by an independent brokerage firm. All purchases will be executed through Euronext Amsterdam and Multilateral Trading Facilities as defined by the Directive 2014/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of May 15, 2014 on markets in financial instruments and subject to the rules of the relevant Exchange.

Outlook

Based on its June 30, 2022 order backlog and feedback from customers, Besi forecasts for Q3-22 that:

  • Revenue will decrease by approximately 20-30% vs. the € 214.0 million reported in Q2-22 reflecting current market conditions and seasonal trends

  • Gross margin will range between 60-62% vs. the 61.0% realized in Q2-22

  • Operating expenses will decrease by 10-15% vs. the € 37.9 million reported in Q2-22
