  • Electronics EBITDA2 margin3 at 30.7% of revenue, in line with guidance
  • Strong Electronics net operating cash flow at €174m
  • FY’22 revenue now expected around $950m (or around €800m based on €/$ exchange rate of 1.2), up around 40% at constant exchange rates and perimeter1
  • FY’22 Electronics EBITDA2 margin3 expected around 32%
  • FY’22 CAPEX planned at around 240m€ to support ongoing industrial capacity increase
  • Soitec’s strategic vision for the next 5 years to be unveiled during 2021 Capital Markets Day (see separate press release to be issued on June 10th)

Bernin (Grenoble), France, June 9th, 2021 – Soitec (Euronext Paris), a world leader in designing and manufacturing innovative semiconductor materials, today announced its full-year results for fiscal year 2021 (ended on March 31st, 2021). The financial statements4 were approved by the Board of Directors during its meeting today.

Paul Boudre, Soitec’s CEO, commented: “As expected, our fiscal year 2021 has been a transition year after close to 30% organic growth in fiscal year 2020. Despite the Covid situation, we are fully in line with our guidance, achieving a small organic growth in revenue and maintaining our Ebitda margin above 30%. In the meantime, we generated strong operating cash flows, which, together with the proceeds from the new convertible bonds issued last October, strengthens our cash position and will contribute to the financing of our growth even beyond our fiscal year 2022.

Our outlook for fiscal year 2022 looks bright. Supported by the accelerated deployment of 5G cellular communication, reinforced demand from automotive sector and increasing reliance on artificial intelligence on the Edge and Cloud computing, we are upgrading our guidance and now expect organic growth to reach around 40%. Such performance will allow us to resume the strong growth trajectory that Soitec initiated five years ago after the Group refocused on Electronics. In addition, we expect to improve our Ebitda margin, in line with our ambition to deliver profitable growth,” added Paul Boudre.

Stable revenue and sustained level of EBITDA2 margin3

Consolidated income statement (part 1)

(Euros millions) FY’21 FY’20 % change
       
Revenue 583.8 597.5 -2%
       
Gross profit 183.5 195.4 -6%
As a % of revenue 31.4% 32.7%  
       
Research and development expenses (44.4) (32.5) +37%
Selling, general and administrative expenses (49.1) (45.2) +9%
       
Current operating income 90.0 117.7 -24%
As a % of revenue 15.4% 19.7%  
       
Electronics EBITDA2 (continuing operations) 179.0 185.4 -3%
As a % of revenue 30.7% 31.0%  

Consolidated revenue reached 583.8 million Euros in FY’21, down 2.3% compared with FY’20. This is the result of a 0.9% growth at constant exchange rates and perimeter1 and a negative currency impact of -3.2% (the scope effect related to the acquisition of Soitec Belgium in May 2019 being immaterial). Total wafer sales were equally split between 150/200-mm and 300-mm.

  • 150/200-mm wafer sales reached 277.4 million Euros, up 4% at constant exchange rates and 1% on a reported basis. This is a combination of further incremental growth achieved in 200-mm RF-SOI wafer sales dedicated to radiofrequency applications for smartphones, lower sales of Power-SOI as a result of the difficulties met by the automotive industry and a strong increase in sales of 150-mm POI (Piezoelectric-on-Insulator) wafers for RF filters, which was enabled by Soitec’s increased industrial capacity.

  • 300-mm wafer sales amounted to 276.7 million Euros, representing a decrease of 3% at constant exchange rates and 6% on a reported basis. 300-mm RF-SOI wafer sales were slightly down but remained at a high level, still supported by the 4G market and benefiting from the growing 5G market. Sales of FD-SOI wafers came lower than last year but recorded a firm rebound in the second part of the year reflecting a strengthened FD-SOI based offering for applications related to Edge-Computing and Automotive. Increase in other 300-mm products sales was driven by higher sales of Imager-SOI dedicated to 3D applications for smartphones, while sales of Photonics-SOI for data centers came lower.

  • Total Royalties and other revenue increased from 28.3 million Euros in FY’20 to 29.7 million Euros in FY’21, up 6% at constant exchange rates and perimeter1. This increase is essentially reflecting a stronger contribution from Dolphin Design.

Gross profit reached 183.5 million Euros in FY’21, down from 195.4 million Euros in FY’20, reflecting a decrease in gross margin from 32.7% of revenue to 31.4% of revenue. This mainly comes as a result of higher depreciation costs, a lower loading of Bernin I and Bernin II industrial facilities and an unfavorable currency impact. On the other hand, gross margin benefitted from lower bulk material prices, as a result of renegotiated long-term agreements with suppliers.

Current operating income declined from 117.7 million Euros, i.e. 19.7% of revenue, in FY’20 to 90.0 million Euros or 15.4% of revenue in FY’21. In addition to lower gross profit, this decline is a direct consequence of the increasing R&D efforts and new hirings made to support future expansion:

  • Net R&D expenses increased from 32.5 million Euros in FY’20 to 44.4 million Euros in FY’21. This increase essentially reflects higher gross R&D Expenses, driven in particular by continued investment effort and higher depreciation, as well as lower prototype sales.

  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses went up from 45.2 million Euros in FY’20 to 49.1 million Euros in FY’21, essentially reflecting an increase in expenses related to employee compensation schemes (higher number of staff and share-based payments related to employee shareholding plans due to an increase in the share price). As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses went slightly up from 7.6% in FY’20 to 8.4% in FY’21.

The EBITDA2 from continuing operations (Electronics) amounted to 179.0 million Euros, down from 185.4 million Euros in FY’20. Despite unfavorable currency impact and continuous efforts in R&D and SG&A, the EBITDA2 margin was maintained above 30%, reaching 30.7% of revenue in FY’21, compared with 31.0% of revenue in FY’20.

Depreciation and amortization expenses went up from 45.5 million Euros in FY’20 to 59.9 million in FY’21, as a result of the high level of industrial capacity and R&D investments carried out by the Group in previous years.

The Group recorded 0.4 million Euros in other operating income in FY’21 whereas it recorded a 1.8 million Euros gain on the disposal of an industrial site in FY’20. The operating income reached 90.4 million Euros in FY’21.

The net financial result was a loss of 14.8 million Euros in FY’21 compared to a loss of 4.1 million Euros in FY’20. On the one hand, the Group recorded an increase in financial expenses mostly related to the new 5-year convertible bond issued in October 2020 (OCEANEs 2025). On the other hand, the Group recorded a net foreign exchange loss of 3.6 million Euros in FY’21 compared to a foreign exchange gain of 0.6 million Euros recorded in FY’20.

Income tax amounted to (1.5) million Euros in FY’21 as the Group continues to benefit from tax loss carryforwards. It compares to (4.9) million Euros in FY’20.

The Group’s consolidated net profit amounted to 72.7 million Euros in FY’21, down 34% compared with a net profit of 109.7 million Euros recorded in FY’20.

Adjusted free cash-flows 37.6 (32.1)
     
Adjusted net cash generated by / (used in) financing activities (1) 416.5 36.4

(1) Adjusted net cash used by investing activities includes 4.1 million Euros in FY’21 (24.7 million Euros in FY’20) of investments which have been financed through leasing (lease-back) and adjusted net cash generated by financing activities includes the same 4.1 million Euros (24.7 million Euros in FY’20).

The working capital requirements from continuing operations improved by 9.3 million Euros during FY’21 thanks to a strong monitoring. This good performance is essentially a reflection of an 18.3 million Euros increase in accounts payables and other liabilities, partially offset by a 9.4 million Euros increase in inventories.

This 9.3 million Euros cash inflow from working capital compares to a cash outflow of 59.1 million Euros recorded in FY’20. In addition, tax paid was down to 14.0 million Euros from 25.6 million Euros in FY’20. As a result, net operating cash generated by continuing operations increased sharply, reaching 174.3 million Euros in FY’21 compared with 100.7 million Euros generated in FY’20.

In FY’21, the adjusted cash out related to investing activities of continuing operations amounted to 136.7 million Euros compared to 132.8 million Euros in FY’20 which was including 25.5 million Euros related to the acquisition of Soitec Belgium. FY’21 capital expenditure includes 24.2 million Euros of investments in intangible assets (mostly capitalized R&D and software) and 113.5 million Euros of investments in tangible assets essentially reflecting capacity investments carried out both in Bernin (mostly for 150-mm POI wafers production at Bernin III) and in Singapore, as well as IT investments.

Thanks to the strong operating cash flows and despite significant cash out from investments, adjusted free cash flows are positive at 37.6 million Euros as compared with negative free cash flows of 32.1 million Euros in FY’20.

Adjusted net cash generated by financing activities of continuing operations amounted to 416.5 million Euros. Financing included 321.1 million Euros of net proceeds from the issue of OCEANEs 2025 convertible bonds, 94.6 million Euros of drawdowns on the 200 million Euros long-term loan facility granted by Banque des Territoires (Caisse des Dépôts Group) as part of Nano 2022 plan to support the financing of both R&D programs and investments in first industrial deployment infrastructures in France as well as 44 million Euros of bank loans in Singapore to finance tools.

In total, net cash generated by continuing operations reached 453.7 million Euros.

Net cash used by discontinued operations stood at 0.4 million Euros.

Overall, Soitec’s cash position has increased by 453.4 million Euros in FY’21 to reach 644.4 million Euros on March 31st, 2021.

Further strengthened financial position

Thanks to the strong operating cash flow generated in FY’21, Soitec has further strengthened its balance sheet.

Shareholders’ equity increased by 123.8 million Euros in FY’21 to 675.5 million Euros, mainly thanks to the net profit generated during the period and the equity part of the OCEANEs 2025 convertible bonds issue.

Financial debt increased from 244.7 million Euros on March 31st, 2020 to 648,5 million Euros on March 31st, 2021. This is essentially reflecting the debt part of the OCEANEs 2025 convertible bonds issue, the drawdowns on the long-term loan facility granted by Banque des Territoires and the new bank loan in Singapore.

However, thanks to the Group’s strong cash position, net debt5 went down from 53.7 million Euros on March 31st, 2020 to 4.1 million Euros on March 31st, 2021.

Outlook

Soitec is upgrading its revenue outlook for FY’22, now expecting FY’22 revenue to reach around 950 million Dollars, against a previous guidance at above 900 million Dollars. Based on a €/$ rate of 1.2, Soitec’s new guidance stands at around 800 million Euros. This represents a growth of around 40% at constant exchange rates and perimeter1.

Organic growth is expected across all diameters. Soitec expects strong growth in 300-mm wafer sales driven by RF-SOI to support the ongoing deployment of 5G smartphones, by FD-SOI with applications in 5G, edge computing and automotive, as well as by Imager-SOI. Soitec also expects further growth in 200-mm wafer sales thanks to continuous increase of RF-SOI content in smartphones. Finally, Soitec expects a sharp increase in 150-mm POI wafer sales.

Soitec expects its FY’22 Electronics EBITDA2 margin3 to reach around 32%. This represents circa 130 basis points improvement from FY’21. Despite expected unfavorable currency impact, Soitec will benefit from a full loading of Bernin I and Bernin II production facilities, a higher loading of Singapore plant as well as favorable raw material prices due to suppliers long-term agreements.

In addition, Soitec anticipates Electronics adjusted net cash out related to capital expenditure to reach around 240 million Euros in FY’22, essentially reflecting an acceleration in capacity investments to support Singapore ramp-up in 300-mm and further capacity increase in 150-mm at Bernin III for POI products.

Consolidated financial statements for FY’21

As previously reported, Soitec’s refocus on Electronics operations decided in January 2015 was nearly completed on March 31st, 2016. Consequently, the FY’21 residual income and expenses relating to Solar and Other activities are reported under ‘Net result from discontinued operations’, below the ‘Operating income’ line, meaning that down to the line ‘Net result after tax from continuing operations’, the Company consolidated income statement fully and exclusively reflects the Electronics activity as well as the Company’s corporate functions expenses. This was already the case in FY’20 financial statements.
