09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Himax Technologies, Inc.
(Nasdaq: HIMX) (“Himax” or “Company”), a leading supplier and fabless manufacturer of display drivers and other semiconductor products, announced its financial results for the third quarter 2023 ended September 30, 2023.
“Ongoing macro headwinds are limiting our visibility as panel customers remain tentative about demand prospects, leading to shortened forecasts and more frequent last-minute orders.
Having said that, our longer-term outlook for the automotive business, our largest revenue contributor, remains positive, as we maintain a dominant position in the sector.
The majority of our design-wins in TDDI and local dimming Tcon, both relatively new technologies for automotive sector, are slated to commence mass production during the next two years, thereby further fortifying our market share leadership amidst growing competition,” said Mr.
Jordan Wu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Himax.
“Amidst the prevailing challenging economic conditions, we continue to implement a range of measures to reduce costs, including improving manufacturing and operational efficiencies, and leveraging diverse partners in foundries and backend sources.
The recently announced partnership alliance with Nexchip in automotive is an illustration of Himax’s foundry supply diversification strategy.
The collaboration expands Himax’s foundry supply while optimizing cost structure for the thriving automotive market, especially in China.
In terms of inventory, the destocking process is progressing nicely with Q3 seeing a meaningful reduction.
Currently, we are nearing historical average levels after several quarters of aggressive inventory depletion,” concluded Mr.
Jordan Wu.
Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results Himax net revenues registered $238.5 million, an increase of 1.5% sequentially and up 11.6% on a year over year basis, exceeding the guidance range of a 7.0% decline to flat sequentially.
This can be credited to positive order momentum across all business segments.
Gross margin came in at 31.4%, a substantial increase from 21.7% of last quarter, and at the upper end of guidance range of 30.5% to 32.0%.
The Q3 gross margin improvement reflected the absence of the one-time expense incurred in Q2 related to the strategic termination of certain high-cost foundry capacity agreements, in addition to a favorable product mix, primarily driven by the remarkable performance of automotive product line which maintains a higher margin profile than corporate average.
Q3 profit per diluted ADS was 6.4 cents, exceeding the guidance range of 1.5 cents to 6.0 cents.
Revenue from large display drivers was $43.7 million, a decrease of 3.7% sequentially but up 5.9% year-over-year.
TV IC sales declined as expected as customers already replenished their inventory in previous quarters and suspended further pull-ins.
Monitor and notebook IC sales were up single digit and a nice double digit respectively in the third quarter, predominantly driven by rush orders from key customers.
Large panel driver IC sales accounted for 18.3% of total revenues for this quarter, compared to 19.3% last quarter and a year ago.
Small and medium-sized display driver revenue was $161.1 million, an increase of 7.2% sequentially and up 13.9% compared to same period last year, surpassing the guidance range due to better-than-expected sales performance, particularly in automotive sector and TDDI products.
Q3 automotive driver sales saw a decent double digit sequential increase thanks to a strong uptick in both TDDI and traditional DDIC as clients worldwide resumed order replenishment.
Smartphone and tablet driver sales, on the other hand, decreased double digit and mid-teens sequentially, reflecting continued soft market demand.
In the third quarter, the automotive business remained Himax’s largest revenue contributor, accounting for nearly 45% of total sales.
One notable highlight during the quarter was Company’s commencement of the world’s first mass production of LTDI.
This further demonstrates Himax’s leadership position in the lucrative automotive display battlefield.
Small and medium-sized driver IC segment accounted for 67.6% of total sales for the quarter, compared to 63.9% in the previous quarter and 66.2% a year ago.
Third quarter revenues from its non-driver business also exceeded guidance with revenue of $33.7 million, down 14.4% from a quarter ago but up 9.0% compared to same period last year.
The better-than-expected performance was a result of higher shipment of WLO and CMOS image sensor.
Tcon business represented over 8% of total sales in Q3 yet experienced a low teens sequential decline, hampered by decreased demand for both large display panels and AMOLED displays for tablet.
On a positive note, Himax continues to solidify its leadership in the automotive Tcon market with local dimming technology adoption rising rapidly by leading panel makers, Tier 1s and car makers across the board.
With numerous project awards already in hand, Himax expects a strong growth trajectory for automotive Tcon in the next few years.
Non-driver products accounted for 14.1% of total revenues, as compared to 16.8% in the previous quarter and 14.5% a year ago.
Operating expenses for the third quarter were $63.7 million, an increase of 19.8% from the previous quarter but down 12.5% from a year ago.
As a reminder, Company grants annual bonuses to employees at the end of September each year, including RSU and cash awards.
2023 annual bonus compensation of $10.4 million was in line with guidance, out of which $9.7 million, or 4.4 cents per diluted ADS, was immediately vested and expensed in the third quarter.
In comparison, the annual bonuses for 2022 and 2021 were $39.6 million and $74.7 million respectively, of which $18.5 million and $24.8 million were vested and expensed immediately.
The changes in Q3 operating expenses were mainly associated with the way Company expenses the employee annual bonus grants based on IFRS accounting.
To clarify, the Q3 bonus expense includes two portions.
First, $9.7 million for the immediately vested and recognized portion of the current year bonus grant that is based on the expected profit for the full year.
Second, $6.2 million for the amortized tranches of the prior year bonuses.
As a reference, the amortized expense of the prior year employee bonuses for full year 2023 would be as high as $21.8 million due to substantially higher profits in 2021 and 2022 leading to a significantly increased bonus carryover amortization expense.
This has caused volatility in IFRS figures for 2023 while, for the annual bonus grants, Himax has always followed a consistent compensation policy and rules for employees.
Amidst prevailing macroeconomic headwinds, Company is currently exercising strict budget and expense control with full year 2023 OPEX poised to decline compared to last year.
Q3 operating income was $11.1 million or 4.6% of sales, compared to 1.8% of sales for the same period last year and -0.9% last quarter.
The sequential increase was primarily a result of increased sales and gross margin, partially offset by higher operating expenses in the third quarter.
The year-over-year increase was primarily a result of lower operating expenses brought by lower annual bonus compensation, partially offset by lower gross margin compared to same period last year.
Third quarter after-tax profit was $11.2 million, or 6.4 cents per diluted ADS, compared to $0.9 million, or 0.5 cents per diluted ADS last quarter and $8.3 million, or 4.8 cents in the same period last year.
Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Himax had $155.4 million of cash, cash equivalents and other financial assets as of September 30, 2023, compared to $227.9 million at the same time last year and $219.5 million a quarter ago.
Third quarter cash flows were impacted primarily by two cash payouts, $83.7 million for annual dividend and $29.5 million for employee bonus.
The employee bonus is comprised of $9.3 million for the immediately vested portion of this year’s award and $20.2 million for vested awards granted over the last 3 years.
Despite the substantial payouts in Q3, Himax delivered strong positive operating cash flow of $16.0 million, again, due to the ongoing destocking progress across major product lines with inventory experiencing a meaningful reduction compared to the past few quarters.
Himax had $42.0 million of long-term unsecured loans as of the end of the third quarter, of which $6.0 million was the current portion.
The Company’s inventories as of September 30, 2023 were $259.6 million, markedly lower than $297.3 million last quarter.
Accounts receivable at the end of September 2023 was $248.5 million, up from $239.0 million last quarter and down from $253.3 million a year ago.
DSO was 95 days at the quarter end, as compared to 90 days last quarter and 74 days a year ago.
Third quarter capital expenditures were $2.6 million, versus $2.9 million last quarter and $3.4 million a year ago.
The third quarter capex was mainly for IC design business.
Outstanding Share As of September 30, 2023, Himax had 174.7 million ADS outstanding, little changed from last quarter.
On a fully diluted basis, total number of ADS outstanding for the third quarter was 174.8 million.
Q4 2023 Outlook Himax expects Q4 sales growth to be relatively subdued compared to typical seasonal trends primarily due to sluggish end market demand as well as cautious inventory management and rigorous procurement scrutiny by customers.
Additionally, ongoing macro headwinds are limiting Company’s visibility as panel customers remain tentative about demand prospects, leading to shortened forecasts and more frequent last-minute orders.
Having said that, Himax’s longer-term outlook for the automotive business, its largest revenue contributor, remains positive, as it maintains a dominant position in the sector.
The majority of Company’s design-wins in TDDI and local dimming Tcon, both relatively new technologies for automotive sector, are slated to commence mass production during the next two years, thereby further fortifying Himax’s market share leadership amidst growing competition.
When coupled with the megatrend of increasing quantity, size and sophistication of displays inside vehicles, Himax is poised to enjoy sustainable growth in the automotive market for years to come regardless of auto industry headwinds or macroeconomic challenges.
Amidst the prevailing challenging economic conditions, Himax continues to implement a range of measures to reduce costs, including improving manufacturing and operational efficiencies, and leveraging diverse partners in foundries and backend sources.
The recently announced partnership alliance with Nexchip in automotive is an illustration of Himax’s foundry supply diversification strategy.
The collaboration expands Himax’s foundry supply while optimizing cost structure for the thriving automotive market, especially in China.
In terms of inventory, the destocking process is progressing nicely with Q3 seeing a meaningful reduction.
Currently, Himax is nearing historical average levels after several quarters of aggressive inventory depletion.
Thanks to accelerating growth in automotive business, improved cost structure, normalized inventory levels, favorable product mix, and Company’s emphasis on higher margin, high value-added areas, like Tcon, OLED and AI, Himax is well positioned to deliver sustainable long term revenue growth and profitability.

In the TV IC business, leading end brands continue to implement stringent production control measures amidst soft demand and are maintaining low inventory levels.
Consequently, Himax expects a double-digit quarter-over-quarter decline in Q4 TV IC sales.
Notebook and monitor IC are also facing a challenging business environment where Company expects sales for both product lines to decrease by double digit sequentially.
SMDDIC Q4 SMDDIC revenue is expected to decline single digit, on the backdrop of a muted festival season where demand for consumer electronics remains sluggish.
Smartphone sales are projected to decline double digit, while tablet sales are expected to increase single digit sequentially in Q4.
Automotive revenue is expected to be flat or slightly down sequentially following a surge in orders resuming for both traditional DDIC and TDDI during the previous quarter.
Q4 automotive TDDI sales are poised to continue to increase by low teens sequentially, fueled by strong customer orders across the board and supportive governmental policies, especially in China and the U.S., aimed at incentivizing new vehicle purchases.
Secured design-win projects for automotive TDDI continue to expand across the board and now total nearly 400, significantly ahead of peers.
Remarkably, automotive TDDI sales are expected to account for almost 40% of total automotive driver sales in Q4.
Automotive driver sales are now Himax’s largest revenue contributor and, if combined with automotive Tcon, is set to represent almost half of Himax total sales in Q4.
On LTDI, Himax is the first in the world to commence mass production of LTDI for certain customers’ NEVs starting in Q3 this year.
Himax expects LTDI adoption to further proliferate as it gains traction in car models featuring large size displays as car makers look to distinguish their vehicle products.
Additionally, Company is seeing an increasing number of customers choosing to adopt its integrated LTDI and local dimming Tcon solution as the standard platform for their ultra large automotive display development.
These newly designed automotive displays are typically larger than 30 inches, deliver a sharp detailed visual experience, and incorporate high-density touch functionality, which typically necessitates the utilization of six or more LTDI chips, together with at least one local dimming Tcon, representing much higher content value for Himax on a per panel basis.
This not only ramps up a new revenue stream, but also reinforces Himax’s leadership position in the automotive display market as it moves into 2024.
Himax stands at the forefront of the automotive display IC market with a diverse product portfolio covering a full range of specifications and technologies, including DDIC, TDDI, local dimming Tcon, LTDI, and AMOLED.
These holistic offerings cater to a wide range of customer preferences and needs, fostering strong customer loyalty and collaborations with global panel makers, Tier 1s, and car makers.
Himax expects its automotive segment to continue to be a key growth driver for the Company.
On smartphone and tablet product lines, Himax continues to see lackluster demand in the market.
On a positive note, Himax’s inventory has substantially rebalanced to a satisfactory level after consecutive quarters of inventory depletion.
With the destocking process nearly complete, the Company placed wafer starts for select products starting in Q2 this year and continue to work on improving cost structure with the aim of improving its efficiency for when demand returns.
