TAINAN, Taiwan, Feb. 13, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Himax Technologies, Inc. ("Himax" or "Company") (Nasdaq: HIMX) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2007.

Net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2007 was $267.1 million, representing 20.9% growth year-over-year and 9.8% growth sequentially.

Gross margin was 24.7% in the fourth quarter of 2007, up 580 basis points year-over-year and 220 basis points sequentially.

Operating margin was 15.9% in the fourth quarter of 2007. Operating income was $42.4 million, up from $22.3 million in the same period last year, and up from $19.9 million in the previous quarter.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2007 was $46.1 million, up from $31.1 million in the same period last year, and up from $21.8 million in the previous quarter. This represents earnings per diluted share of $0.23, compared to $0.16 in the fourth quarter of 2006, and $0.11 in the third quarter of 2007.

Excluding share-based compensation and acquisition-related charges, non-GAAP operating margin was 16.6% in the fourth quarter of 2007. Non-GAAP operating income was $44.4 million, up from $23.8 million in the same period last year, and up from $36.2 million in the previous quarter.

Non-GAAP net income was $48.1 million, up from $32.6 million in the same period last year, and up from $38.0 million in the previous quarter. This represents earnings per diluted share of $0.24, compared to $0.16 in the fourth quarter of 2006, and $0.19 in the third quarter of 2007.

Share-based compensation was $1.6 million, compared to $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2006, and $15.7 million in the third quarter of 2007. Acquisition-related charges were $0.5 million, compared to $18 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2006 and $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2007.

Reconciliation of gross margin, operating margin and diluted EPS excluding share-based compensation and acquisition-related charges, a non-GAAP financial measure, to GAAP gross margin, GAAP operating margin and diluted GAAP EPS, most comparable GAAP figure, is set out in the attached reconciliation schedule.

Jordan Wu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Himax, commented, "We have concluded another remarkable quarter with revenue, net income, and EPS all achieving record-high levels. Also, our fourth quarter revenue, gross margin, and EPS all came in higher than our previous guidance. As always, we introduced innovative and leading-edge display driver solutions in the past quarter which again illustrates Himax's capability in setting new industry standards and providing value to our customers' development of new products."

Mr. Wu continued, "During the past few months, we also made a couple of strategic moves in our non-driver IC areas where we formed business alliances with leading players in the industry. We believe these moves will provide significant values to our shareholders in the long term. In the beginning of 2008, Chi Mei Optoelectronics, one of the world's leading LCD panel manufacturers, and TPV Technologies Limited, the world's largest LCD monitor manufacturer and the world's largest LCD TV ODM, each took a minority ownership stake in Himax Media Solutions, a subsidiary of Himax. Additionally, we announced a strategic alliance with 3M, one of the world's leading companies in optics technologies, to commercialize LCOS mobile projectors by combining the two companies' proprietary technologies to deliver a complete mobile projector solution to consumer electronics manufacturers. These strategic alignments will provide Himax added competitive strength and further validate our strategy in the non-driver space."

Looking forward, Mr. Wu added, "In 2008, display driver IC will continue to be our main business, for which our primary goal is still to gain further market share across all LCD panel applications. In addition, we remain fully committed to making Himax a world-leading semiconductor solution provider for displays with a more diversified product portfolio beyond driver IC. Overall, we expect revenues to decline sequentially in the first quarter of 2008, primarily due to seasonality. We expect revenues to decline by around 15% and gross margin to remain flat or decline slightly. We expect diluted GAAP EPS to be in the range of $0.13-$0.15."
