"We are pleased to report another quarter of our financial performance meeting our guidance for revenues, gross margin and EPS", stated Mr. Jordan Wu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Himax. "Though our Q2 operational result was not as strong as those of the past years mostly due to a significant inventory correction of a major Korean end customer, as we reported during our last earnings call. However, as we entered into the third quarter, we are seeing strong growth in all of our product segments, including large panel driver ICs, small and medium driver ICs and non-driver IC businesses. We are also seeing demand from our major Korean end customer rebounding strongly. We believe the strategies we put in place years ago to diversify our customer base and product segments provide us a level of insulation not enjoyed by many of our competitors. We remain excited about our growth opportunities in all of our product segments, including our core business segment in display drivers for large, small and medium-sized panels."

Total revenues of $196.4 million for the second quarter of 2014 represented a 5.1% decrease from the second quarter of 2013 and a 0.9% increase from the first quarter of 2014.

Revenues from large panel display drivers for the second quarter of 2014 were $50.8 million, down 21.1% from the second quarter of 2013 and up 4.5% from the first quarter of 2014, accounting for 25.9% of total revenues for the second quarter of 2014. As anticipated, the sequential increase was a result of shipments to both new and existing customers.

Sales of small and medium-sized drivers were $107.0 million for the second quarter of 2014, down 3.5% from the second quarter of 2013 and down 3.5% from the first quarter of 2014. It accounted for 54.5% of total revenues for the second quarter of 2014 as compared to 53.6% a year ago and 56.9% in the previous quarter. Small and medium-sized driver's sales continue to account for over half of total revenues. The slight sequential decrease was mainly due to the inventory correction from our key Korean end customer, an issue foreseen and mentioned in the last earnings call.

Revenues from Himax's non-driver businesses were $38.6 million, up 21.6% from the same period last year and up 9.7% sequentially. Non-driver product accounted for 19.6% of total revenues, compared to 15.3% a year ago and 18.1% in the previous quarter. Of the non-driver business segment, the main contributors included the Company's timing controllers, programmable gamma OP, touch panel controllers, CMOS image sensors, power management ICs and ASIC service.

Gross margins were 24.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2014, down 50 basis points from 24.7% in the previous quarter and down 40 basis points from 24.6% in the second quarter of 2013. The Company guided for a slightly declined gross margin in the last earnings call, anticipating pricing competition in China's smartphone market. Plus, shipment of low-end CMOS image sensor also had some negative impact on gross margin in Q2. Although it is expected that more sales from higher-end CMOS image sensor and smartphone driver IC in Q3, pricing remains competitive.

Second quarter 2014 GAAP operating expenses were $29.0 million, up 6.8% from a year ago and stay around flat sequentially. Operating expenses increased from the previous year due to higher salary expenses for additional headcount, annual pay raises and certain new product tape-outs during the quarter.

GAAP operating income in the second quarter of 2014 was $18.4 million, or 9.4% of sales, down 22.4% year over year and down 3.5% sequentially. The year-over-year decline was mainly due to lower sales and higher operating expenses.

Reported GAAP net income for the second quarter was $24.1 million, or 14.0 cents per diluted ADS, compared to $19.4 million, or 11.2 cents per diluted ADS, for the same period last year, and $15.7 million, or 9.1 cents per diluted ADS, in the previous quarter. GAAP net income grew 24.6% year over year and increased 53.4% from the previous quarter. The increase was mainly the result of an investment gain of $10.7 million, or 5.0 cents in the second quarter as the Company disclosed in April. It disposed of an investment in a US display company, which was wholly acquired by a third party. The initial investment of $4.0 million, which was made in December 2013, has matured to a total of $12.4 million one-time investment gain. According to the disposal agreement, the Company booked $10.7 million in investment income in the second quarter, and the remaining amount will be accounted in or around April 2015. This one-time gain of $10.7 million contributed to 5.0 cents of GAAP EPS attributable to shareholders for the second quarter.

Non-GAAP net income in the second quarter was $24.5 million, or 14.2 cents per diluted ADS, representing an increase of 21.9% year-over-year and an increase of 51.0% sequentially. Non-GAAP EPS per diluted ADS grew 21.8% from the same period last year and grew 51.1% over the previous quarter. The increase was mainly due to the investment gain of $10.7 million.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

The Company had $172.9 million of cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities at the end of June 2014, up from $147.1 million at the same time last year and up from $139.7 million a quarter ago. On top of the above cash position, restricted cash was $108.4 million at the end of the quarter. The restricted cash is mainly used to guarantee the company's short term loan for the same amount. Himax is debt-free.

Inventories as of June 30, 2014 were $166.3 million, up from $142.9 million a year ago and down from $172.3 million as of March 31, 2014. The lower inventory was a result of increased shipment in the quarter. The Company expects the inventory level to continue to decline by the end of the third quarter. Accounts receivable at the end of June 2014 were $199.0 million as compared to $219.2 million a year ago and $204.5 million last quarter. DSO was 92 days at end of June, 2014, as compared to 104 days a year ago and 95 days at end of the last quarter.

Net cash inflow from operating activities for the second quarter of 2014 was $22.9 million as compared to cash outflow of $2.7 million for the second quarter of 2013 and cash inflow of $9.3 million for the first quarter of 2014. The improvement year over year was mainly due to lower accounts receivable and improved DSO. The sequential increase was mainly the reflection of lower inventories and lower accounts receivable at the end of this quarter.

Net cash inflow from investing activities for the second quarter of 2014 was $8.5 million, primarily resulting from capital expenditures of $3.8 million and disposal of investment of $14.7 million. Capital expenditures in the second quarter were principally for purchases of in-house testers for R&D and certain equipment for LCOS production line.

Dividend Payment

During the second quarter, the Company declared its annual cash dividend of 27 cents per ADS, totaling $46.0 million. The dividends were already paid out in July. The dividend is determined primarily by the prior year's profitability. The decision to pay out 75% of last year's net profit demonstrates the Company's continued support for its shareholder base and confidence in the long term profitability.

Share Buyback Update

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had 170.5 million ADS equivalents outstanding, unchanged from the last quarter. On a fully diluted basis, the total number of ADS outstanding is 172.1 million.

Business Updates

For the third quarter, in the large panel driver IC business, the Company sees driver ICs for TVs being the main growth product in this segment. This will be the first quarter that sales from large panel driver IC have year-over-year growth since Q4, 2012. The forces behind growth in the large panel IC segment include strong sequential demand from Innolux, accelerated growth from the Taiwanese and Korean customers, Chinese TV panel customers' continuously expanding capacity, and, more 4K TV displays rolling off production lines at literally all of the large panel customers. The Company anticipated that 4K TV penetration and acceptance would grow strongly this year. The Company now expects the driver IC shipments for 4K TV to more than double in Q3 2014. The Company expects this growth trend to continue beyond Q3 2014 and well into 2015. While the large panel sector remains a competitive and mature market, innovation enables Himax to continue pursuing new technologies and expanding its customer base. The Company is happy that this large panel driver business has resumed growth this year. The Company is confident that this marks the beginning of a long term growth trend which is to last for the next few years.

The other main segment in the driver business is ICs used in small and medium-sized panels, which are primarily used in smartphones, tablets and for automotive applications. Q3 sales from smartphones should rebound strongly from those of Q2 mainly as a result of the demand from the Company's Korean end-customer is coming back from last quarter's unusual low level. The Company also enjoys strong growth in the Chinese smartphone market, especially in the higher end segments. Although competition remains intense, Himax continues to command a leading share in small and medium-sized driver IC market. It launched a new generation of driver ICs for HD720 resolution, the current mainstream market for higher end smartphones, and has enjoyed numerous design-wins in China and elsewhere.

Included in the small and medium-sized panel IC are also drivers for tablet and automotive displays. The Company expects sequential declines for tablets in the third quarter due to slowing demand in China's white-box market caused by its recent sluggish export to the third world countries and the government's tightening of liquidity, a measure that is forcing smaller and weaker players out of the market. Q3's slower tablet demand may also be a matter of change of consumer behavior as some consumers are switching to buy smartphones with screen sizes close to those of tablets. The Company is seeing the demand for driver ICs used in automotive displays continuing its steady growth during the third quarter. Summing it up, the decline in tablet demand will be more than offset by the strong rebound in the smartphone sector so the overall small and medium-sized driver segment is expected to enjoy a high single digit growth compared to the previous quarter. The company remains positive on the outlook of this segment for the remainder of 2014.

The non-driver businesses remain the most promising product category in terms of growth in the second half of 2014 and into 2015. It is also the key differentiator for Himax versus many of its competitors. Quite a few of the non-driver products, especially CMOS image sensors, touch panel controllers, and timing controllers are set to grow significantly in Q3. The non-driver business category is expected to grow by close to 20% sequentially in Q3, and the Company sees the momentum continuing well into 2015.

The CMOS image sensors delivered another strong quarter in Q2, up over 20% sequentially. The Company's existing 2 and 5 megapixel CMOS image sensors are producing good sales from select international brands and Chinese white-box customers. However, the Company is experiencing some delay in design-in process with its customers to replace older generation sensors with new designs. Such delays will have a negative impact on the corporate gross margin.

It is expected that the 8 megapixel sensors to start small volume shipments from Q3. The 8 megapixel sensor products will contribute to sales growth and better gross margin as they enter mass production. The Company recently launched its first 13 megapixel sensor, which positions us among a small group of players with such high end offering. Additionally, following multi-year design efforts, the Company now has a competitive CMOS image sensor product line for automotive and surveillance applications, both large, lucrative and fast-growing markets. This is a market with a high entry barrier where special know-how is required. Collectively, it is expected that the CMOS image sensor business to more than double in 2014.

The current strategy for the CMOS image sensor business is to focus on increasing shipments and gaining market share. The gross margin for this business will improve when we successfully replace certain old generation designs with new ones and the higher end products, initially 8 megapixel and then 13 megapixel products; comprise a larger portion of the revenue mix. Looking further ahead, the contribution from sensors for automotives and surveillance applications will further improve the gross margin of this product line. The Company is particularly excited about the long term prospect of smart sensors, an area where it will enjoy a special advantage thanks to the Company's unique offering of wafer level optics.

The touch panel controller product line looks set to enjoy another significant growth in Q3 after it more than doubled in Q2. The Company expects its strong growth momentum in touch panel controllers to continue in the second half of 2014 as a result of certain major design-wins across both international and Chinese markets. On the back of its rapidly growing market share in the traditional touch panel market, the Company believes its committed development on the new 'in-cell' and 'on-cell' touch panel technologies has placed the Company in a very competitive position for the future. The development of both new 'in-cell' and 'on-cell' touch panel technologies are led by TFT-LCD makers and Himax is in close partnerships with some of the leading players in this very important future technology.

The Company's LCOS business has been very exciting, and also very dynamic. Himax continues to work with multiple customers, including some top-notch names, on multiple designs simultaneously. Many of these projects involve custom-built designs that are funded by the customers' development fees.

After a lengthy cooperation and research and development period, the Company is pleased to be able to announce publicly that Himax and Lenovo are also partners for wearable device products. Himax is supplying LCOS micro displays for a variety of Lenovo's products. Please note that this disclosure has been authorized and approved by Lenovo.   

Furthermore, in June Himax unveiled the Front-Lit™ LCOS technology, the latest, proprietary and patented LCOS offering. The Company presented the cutting-edge design for the first time to the public at The SID Display Week Conference in San Diego. The new design represents one of the biggest technology breakthroughs of the head-mounted display industry. The proprietary Front-Lit™ LCOS module enables an ultra-compact and extremely power-efficient optical engine by consolidating two major components of optical engine and integrating them into the micro display module itself. Presently, Himax is engaged with multiple tier-one customers in developing head mounted display products using its Front-Lit™ LCOS technologies. After testing several competing technologies, these tier-one customers selected Himax's Front-Lit LCOS due to its superior overall performance. The Company believes its LCOS microdisplay business remains an exciting and significant long-term growth area for Himax.

Last but not least, the Company has been working with several industry leading partners using its unique and industry-leading wafer level optics, or WLO, for the development of three exciting product areas of the future, namely array cameras, certain special purpose sensor and microdisplay light guides for wearable devices. Such development sometimes involves the capabilities of its in-house CMOS image sensor, LCOS microdisplay and video processing algorithm teams. Himax is in a unique position in these exciting new technology areas in that it is the only player in the marketplace which is able to provide a total solution. The Company is excited to be in the forefront of such technological developments thanks to many years of technological innovation which leads to a unique product portfolio covering the full range of image processing related knowhow.

The Company is accelerating our R&D activities, hoping to capture the exciting business opportunities it just mentioned as soon as it can.  Operating expenses in the third quarter are expected to increase some 20% year over year mainly as a result of accelerating R&D. This is in line with the strategy the Company set forth last year when, during a few of the earnings calls, the Company indicated that it intended to expand our R&D expenses in 2014, following several years of stable R&D spending. While this will inevitably affect the short-term bottom line, it is believed that such R&D investment will generate significant top line and bottom line growth starting next year.
