DUIVEN, the Netherlands, Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BE Semiconductor Industries N.V. (the “Company" or "Besi") (Euronext Amsterdam: BESI; OTC markets: BESIY, Nasdaq International Designation), a leading manufacturer of assembly equipment for the semiconductor industry, today announced its results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2018.

Key Highlights Q4-18

  • Revenue of € 92.5 million is within prior guidance. Down 20.7% and 39.6% vs. Q3-18 and Q4-17, respectively, due primarily to weakness in mobile applications and less favorable market conditions

  • Gross margin decreased to 56.4% vs. 58.0% in Q3-18. Exceeded guidance. Up vs. 56.3% in Q4-17 as production overhead re-aligned to meet lower demand levels
  • Operating expenses decreased € 3.2 million (-11.0%) vs. Q3-18. Better than guidance. Down € 8.3 million (-24.3%) vs. Q4-17
  • Net income of € 22.7 million decreased by € 6.6 million (-22.5%) vs. Q3-18 while net margins were 24.5% (25.1% in Q3-18) despite adverse market environment
  • Net cash increased by € 39.3 million vs. Q3-18 (+24.5%) to reach € 199.4 million

Key Highlights FY 2018

  • Revenue of € 525.3 million declined 11.4% vs. 2017 primarily as a result of lower die bonding revenue for mobile applications partially offset by growth in computing and automotive end markets
  • Orders decreased by 29.0% due primarily to reduced demand for high end smart phone capacity post significant 2017 ramp and less favorable market conditions
  • Gross margin decreased slightly to 56.8% vs. 57.1%
  • Net income of € 136.3 million declined 21.3% vs. 2017. Net margin of 25.9% vs. 29.2%
  • Proposed dividend of € 1.67 per share. 91% pay-out ratio


  • Q1-19 revenue estimated to decline approximately 15% vs. Q4-18 as difficult market conditions continue in traditionally weakest quarter of the year. Gross margin expected to remain in 55%-57% range as cost reduction initiatives continue to align overhead with customer demand

Richard W. Blickman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Besi, commented:

“Besi’s 2018 results reflected solid performance and strategic execution in an assembly equipment market significantly more challenging than 2017. Revenue of € 525.3 million and net income of € 136.3 million declined by 11.4% and 21.3%, respectively, vs. 2017. Our 2018 revenue development was primarily affected by a second quarter slow-down in high-end mobile demand followed by broad weakness in memory and other end user markets starting in the third quarter of the year. Revenue development was also adversely affected by forex headwinds from a 4.5% average decrease in the value of the dollar vs. the euro. In retrospect, it appears that Besi’s second quarter order weakness was an early indication of an industry downturn post an extended upward trajectory which began in the second half of 2016.

In the current downturn, we rapidly aligned production, supply chain and personnel in response to adverse market conditions. As a result, Besi was able to maintain peer leading metrics of profitability such as gross and net margins (56.8% and 25.9%) and return on equity (33.8%). In fact, gross margins exceeded 56% in each quarter of 2018 despite a revenue decline of 42.6% between the second and fourth quarters of the year. Further, we successfully reduced costs in the face of decreased customer demand due to the ongoing execution of strategic initiatives, continued reductions of European fixed overhead and the realignment of temporary Asian production personnel to a changing market environment.

For Q4-18, revenue of € 92.5 million and net income of € 22.7 million compared favorably to expectations. A higher than anticipated gross margin of 56.4% and decreased sequential operating expenses helped us exceed operating profit guidance despite a 20.7% revenue decrease vs. Q3-18. Cash generation was also strong with net cash increasing by € 39.3 million vs. Q3-18 (+24.5%) to reach € 199.4 million.

Our results over the past two years demonstrate the improved scalability and profitability of Besi’s business model both in strong industry upcycles such as 2017 as well as in the sharp industry downdraft experienced in the second half of 2018. We also have a solid liquidity base of cash and deposits of € 475.5 million at year end (€ 5.68 per diluted share) which puts us in a good position to take advantage of future opportunities regardless of the industry environment.  

In addition, our capital allocation policy continues to reward shareholders for their investment in Besi. In 2018, € 209.5 million was returned to shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases. Since 2011, total dividends and share repurchases have aggregated € 483.6 million (or € 6.57 per share). Given our solid cash flow generation and future prospects, we initiated a new € 75 million share repurchase program in July 2018. Moreover, share repurchase activities since 2011 have enabled us to accumulate approximately 6.5 million shares in treasury by year end 2018 at an average cost per share of € 13.75. Further, given profits earned in 2018 and Besi’s solid financial position, we propose to pay a cash dividend of € 1.67 per share for approval at our AGM on April 26, 2019. The proposed distribution is the eighth consecutive annual dividend paid and reflects a pay-out ratio of 91%.

Looking to Q1-19, we estimate that revenue will be approximately 15% lower than Q4-18 as difficult market conditions continue in what is traditionally our weakest quarter of the year. We expect gross margin to remain in the 55%-57% range as we further adjust overhead levels to customer demand. At present, the 2019 outlook for the assembly equipment market is hard to predict. There are many factors which could influence the outlook and timing of any anticipated rebound this year such as slowing global growth and trade frictions between the US and China.  

Longer term, there are many reasons to be optimistic about Besi’s prospects. We have a leading position in the advanced packaging space whose outlook is bright as an important enabler of the digital society and the new applications which will be generated along with it. The advent of 5G capabilities, artificial intelligence, automotive electronics and the ever increasing amounts of advanced logic and memory capacity necessary for the build out of cloud infrastructure should be strong drivers of innovation and growth in the next customer investment round.“

Fourth Quarter Results of Operations

Book to Bill Ratio0.9x0.9x-1.0x-0.1x

Besi’s Q4-18 revenue decreased by 20.7% vs. Q3-18 and by 39.6% vs. Q4-17 due primarily to lower die bonding shipments for high end mobile capacity following significant customer investment in 2017. The revenue decrease was broad based by customer type and by end market application and consistent with an industry downturn that began at the end of Q2-18.  

Orders of € 83.1 million were down 23.0% vs. Q3-18 due primarily to lower demand for mobile applications and typical seasonal influences partially offset by increased orders for cloud server applications. Orders decreased by 44.4% vs. Q4-17 due primarily to less favorable market conditions and broad based booking weakness per end user market application. Per customer type, IDM orders decreased sequentially by € 17.2 million, or 21.0%, while subcontractor orders decreased by € 7.6 million, or 29.4%. IDM and subcontractor orders represented 78% and 22%, respectively, of total Q4-18 bookings vs. 76% and 24%, respectively, in Q3-18.

Gross Margin56.4%58.0%-1.656.3%+0.1
Operating Expenses25.929.1-11.0%34.2-24.3%
Financial Expense/(Income), net4.24.2-3.3+27.3%

Besi’s gross margin of 56.4% in Q4-18 was 1.6 points lower than Q3-18 but above prior guidance (54%-56%). The sequential decline was primarily due to significantly lower revenue levels. Gross margin was slightly higher than Q4-17 despite a 39.6% revenue decrease vs. Q4-18 as temporary production overhead and supply chain activities were adjusted in a rapid manner to changing industry conditions.  

Q4-18 operating expenses decreased by € 3.2 million, or 11.0%, vs. Q3-18 and were better than prior guidance primarily as a result of lower warranty expense and favorable one-time, year-end recordings. Excluding variable compensation, restructuring, forex effects and one-time benefits/charges, estimated base line operating expenses decreased from € 26.3 million in Q3-18 to € 25.7 million in Q4-18 (-2.3%). Operating expenses also decreased by € 8.3 million, or 24.3%, vs. Q4-17 principally resulting from lower warranty costs and decreased personnel expenses associated with reduced headcount levels as well as the absence of favorable year-end recordings in Q4-17. Similarly, estimated base line operating expenses decreased by € 5.5 million, or 17.6%, vs. Q4-17. Total headcount at December 31, 2018 decreased by 8.1% vs. September 30, 2018 and by 13.8% vs. December 31, 2017 primarily due to a reduction in temporary Asian production personnel and, to a lesser extent, lower levels of fixed European headcount.

Financial expense, net of € 4.2 million was roughly equal to Q3-18 but increased by € 0.9 million vs. Q4-17 due to higher interest expense associated with Besi’s December 2017 Convertible Note issuance.

Net Income22.729.3-22.5%43.6-47.9%
Net Margin24.5%25.1%-0.628.4%-3.9
Tax Rate-2.9%14.9%-17.810.6%-13.5

Besi’s net income decreased by € 6.6 million (-22.5%) vs. Q3-18 principally due to its 20.7% revenue decrease and lower gross margins partially offset by reduced operating expenses and a net tax benefit recorded in Q4-18. The benefit was mainly due to € 4.8 million in tax credits associated with the Innovation Box program for the period 2015-2018.

Net Margin25.9%29.2%-3.3
Tax Rate12.1%13.1%-1.0

For the full year 2018, Besi’s revenue decreased by 11.4% primarily due to lower die bonding shipments for smart phone applications partially offset by higher revenue for Besi’s packaging, plating and spares/service activities. The revenue decrease was also negatively influenced by a 4.5% average decrease in the value of the US dollar vs. the euro during the year.

Similarly, 2018 orders decreased by 29.0% vs. 2017. The order decrease was broad based across product lines and end user applications. There was particular order weakness in die bonding orders for smart phone applications by IDM customers and their respective supply chains post the significant 2017 capacity build. Orders by IDMs and subcontractors represented 68% and 32%, respectively, of Besi’s total 2018 orders vs. 65% and 35%, respectively, in 2017.

Besi’s 2018 net income of € 136.3 million decreased by € 36.9 million, or 21.3%, vs. 2017 primarily as a result of an 11.4% year over year revenue decrease, a € 7.6 million increase in net financial expense and slightly lower gross margins. Such negative influences were partially offset by a reduction in the effective tax rate from 13.1% to 12.1% and € 3.5 million of lower operating expenses.

In Q4-18, Besi generated cash flow from operations of € 56.6 million which was utilized to fund (i) € 12.5 million of share repurchases, (ii) € 10.0 million of debt retirement, (iii) € 2.7 million of capitalized development spending and (iv) € 1.4 million of capital expenditures.

At the end of Q4-18, cash and deposits aggregated € 475.5 million vs. € 443.5 million at the end of Q3-18. Net cash of € 199.4 million increased by € 39.4 million, or 24.5%, vs. Q3-18. At year-end 2018, net cash declined by € 48.2 million, or 19.5%, vs. year end 2017 primarily due to the utilization of € 209.5 million of cash and deposits for the payment of dividends and share repurchases.

Share Repurchase Activity
During Q4-18, Besi repurchased 708,012 of its ordinary shares at an average price of € 18.19 per share for a total of € 12.9 million. For all of 2018, Besi repurchased a total of 1.6 million shares at an average price of € 21.79 per share for a total of € 35.5 million. The value of shares repurchased in 2018 represents an increase of € 12.0 million, or 51.5%, vs. 2017 levels.


Due to its earnings, cash flow generation and prospects, Besi’s Board of Management has proposed a cash dividend of € 1.67 per share for the 2018 year for approval at its AGM on April 26, 2019. The proposed dividend will be payable from May 6, 2019 and represents a pay-out ratio of approximately 91%.


Based on its December 31, 2018 order backlog and feedback from customers, Besi forecasts for Q1-19 that:

  • Revenue will decline by approximately 15% vs. the € 92.5 million reported in Q4-18.
  • Gross margin will range between 55-57% vs. the 56.4% realized in Q4-18.
  • Operating expenses will increase by approximately 25-30% vs. the € 25.9 million reported in Q4-18 primarily due to increased share based compensation expense of approximately € 3.5 million and the absence of favorable one-time, year-end recordings in Q4-18.
