Actions Semiconductor Reports First Quarter 2010 Results

发布于:2019-02-01 作者:AG88

ZHUHAI, China, May 14 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Actions 新浪娱乐Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: ACTS), one of China's leading fabless semiconductor companies that provides comprehensive mixed-signal system-on-a-chip (SoC) and multimedia digital signal processing (DSP) solutions for portable consumer electronics, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010.

All financial results are reported on a U.S. GAAP basis.

Revenue for the first quarter of 2010 was $7.9 million, as compared to revenue of $7.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, and $12.2 million for the first quarter of 2009.

Net loss attributable to Actions Semiconductor shareholders for the first quarter of 2010 was $0.9 million, or ($0.01) per ADS, compared to net loss attributable to Actions Semiconductor shareholders of $7.5 million, or ($0.10) per ADS, for the fourth quarter of 2009, and net loss attributable to Actions Semiconductor shareholders of $1.5 million, or $(0.02) per ADS, for the first quarter of 2009.

Actions Semiconductor reported gross margin of 39.6% for the first quarter of 2010, as compared to gross margin of 34.9% for the fourth quarter of 2009, and 33.6% for the first quarter of 2009. The Company ended the quarter with $100.0 million in cash and cash equivalents together with time deposits. Trading securities and marketable securities, current and non-current, were $147.9 million at the end of the quarter.

Since the share repurchase programs started in 2007, the Company has invested approximately $28.8 million in repurchasing its shares. As of March 31, 2010, approximately 12.0 million American Depositary Shares (ADSs) were repurchased.

"Our results were driven by solid demand for our products during the first quarter," stated Mr. Niccolo Chen, CEO of Actions Semiconductor. "We were pleased to see an increase in our high-end product shipments sequentially, particularly in our Series 13 and Series 25 products targeting the QVGA and D1 markets, respectively. Shipments from these product lines contributed 25%-30% of our overall revenue in the quarter, compared to approximately 20% in the fourth quarter of 2009. We were pleased to see continued improvement in our gross margin as favorable shifts in our product mix and continual cost reductions offset average selling price ("ASP") erosion during the quarter. Our new product lines targeted at the automotive, boom box and advanced MP4 sectors of the market keep driving our growth and contributing to our efforts to sustain margins. We look forward to ongoing expansions of the applications and end-markets addressed by our product portfolio through our long term R&D investments. We expect the rebound in demand for consumer electronics and stabilization of ASPs to positively impact our performance in the upcoming quarters. Our core business strategy continues to be focused on innovating our product portfolio, leveraging our sector leadership, and preserving our strong balance sheet," concluded Mr. Chen.

Business Outlook

The following statements are based upon management's current expectations. These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially. The company undertakes no obligation to update these statements.

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 ending June 30, 2010, Actions Semiconductor estimates revenue in the range of $8.5 to $9.5 million, gross margin of approximately 35%, and operating expenses slightly higher on a sequential basis. The second quarter 2010 estimates include share-based compensation of approximately $1.0 million.
