SemiLEDs Suffers 62 Percent Loss In Revenues

The III-nitride innovator says it has beared the brunt of a series of one-time events


SemiLEDs Corporation, a developer and manufacturer of LED chips and LED components, has announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, ended May 31st, 2013.

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $3.5 million, a 62 percent decrease compared to $9.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

GAAP net loss attributable to SemiLEDs stockholders for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $11.0 million, or a net loss of $0.40 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss attributable to SemiLEDs stockholders of $10.0 million, or a net loss of $0.36 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

“Unfortunately the combination of a series of one-time events greatly impacted our business performance this quarter," said Trung Doan, Chairman, President and CEO. “Despite this brief set-back, we remain confident we have the right strategy in place, focusing on profitable market segments where the performance and quality of our products continues to differentiate us," concluded Doan.

GAAP gross margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was negative 129 percent, compared with gross margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 of negative 11 percent. Operating margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was negative 278 percent compared with negative 87 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

Margins for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 were negatively impacted by a reduction in revenues, excess capacity charges for our LED chips, and impairment charges on goodwill and intangible assets that arose from the acquisition of a majority owned subsidiary in August 2011.

The company’s cash and cash equivalents were $41.4 million at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to the second quarter fiscal 2013 ending balance of $43.9 million. Cash used in operating activities was $2.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

SemiLEDs held a webcast discussing these results yesterday. A replay of the webcast will be available on the Investors section of the company’s website and will remain available for approximately 90 calendar days.

 



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
