BE Semiconductor Industries N.V. Announces Q3-22 Results

Revenue of € 168.8 Million and Net Income of € 57.3 Million. Results at Favorable End of Guidance

YTD-22 Revenue of € 585.1 Million Up 1.3% and Net Income of € 200.5 Million Down 6.9%

DUIVEN, The Netherlands, Oct. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BE Semiconductor Industries N.V. (the “Company" or "Besi") (Euronext Amsterdam: BESI; OTC markets: BESIY), a leading manufacturer of assembly equipment for the semiconductor industry, today announced its results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2022.

Key Highlights Q3-22

  • Revenue of € 168.8 million declined 21.1% vs. Q2-22 due to lower shipments for mobile applications reflecting seasonal influences and softer market conditions for computing applications. Down 19.0% vs. Q3-21 due to lower demand by Chinese subcontractors and reduced sales for high-end mobile applications. Partially offset by increased automotive and hybrid bonding shipments
  • Orders of € 125.3 million decreased 18.2% vs. Q2-22 due principally to weaker demand for high-performance computing applications from IDMs and Asian subcontractors. Vs. Q3-21, down 40.1% primarily due to broad-based market decline, particularly in computing applications
  • Gross margin of 62.3% rose 1.3 points vs. Q2-22 and 1.9 points vs. Q3-21 principally due to more favorable product mix and beneficial forex influences from increase of USD vs. euro
  • Net income of € 57.3 million decreased 24.2% vs. Q2-22 and 31.9% vs. Q3-21 principally as result of lower revenue and increased R&D spending for wafer level applications
  • Besi’s net margin reached 34.0% vs. the 35.4% achieved in Q2-22 despite a 21.1% sequential revenue decrease. Vs. Q3-21, net margin declined by 6.4 points

Key Highlights YTD-22

  • Revenue of € 585.1 million rose 1.3% vs. YTD-21 reflecting strong demand for high performance computing, automotive and hybrid bonding applications. Partially offset by significant decline in high-end mobile applications post 2021 capacity build and reduced demand by Chinese subcontractors
  • Orders of € 483.3 million declined 34.4% reflecting broad-based softening of market conditions, and decreased demand for high-end mobile applications and from Chinese subcontractors
  • Gross margin rose 0.6 points to reach 61.1% primarily due to favorable forex influences and Besi’s timely adjustment of production and overhead levels to changing market conditions
  • Net income of € 200.5 million down 6.9% due primarily to higher R&D spending and forex hedging costs. Net margin declined to 34.3% vs. 37.3%
  • Liquidity position strengthened as cash and deposits at end of Q3-22 grew by 12.1% vs. Q3-21 to reach € 661.8 million and net cash rose by 19.0% to reach € 342.5 million


  • Q4-22 revenue to decrease approximately 15-25% vs. Q3-22 reflecting seasonal trends and weak market conditions. Gross margin of 60-62% anticipated

Richard W. Blickman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Besi, commented:
“Besi reported Q3-22 results which were at the favorable end of guidance but reflected the impact of a new industry downturn. For the quarter, revenue, orders and net income of € 168.8 million, € 125.3 million and € 57.3 million decreased by 21.1%, 18.2% and 24.2%, respectively, versus Q2-22. Adverse revenue and order development this quarter reflected typical seasonal weakness for mobile applications but also more general weakness in high-end server, data center and general computing applications. Such weakness was partially offset by continued strength in automotive and industrial end-user markets and ongoing shipments of hybrid bonding equipment to customers. Similarly, Besi’s backlog of € 240.6 million at the end of Q3 declined by 12.6% versus Q2-22 but remained at higher than typical levels.

Despite a challenging market environment, we maintained profit efficiency at high levels with gross margins of 62.3% exceeding guidance and a net margin of 34.0%. We re-aligned Besi’s production model rapidly in response to changing market conditions. As a result, total headcount has declined by 12.7% and temporary Asian production headcount by 65.2% since the end of Q1-22. We will continue to adjust overhead levels as necessary in accordance with market developments.

For the first nine months, Besi reported revenue of € 585.1 million which increased by 1.3% and net income which decreased by 6.9% versus the comparable period of 2021. Growth was favorably influenced by increased demand for Besi’s computing, automotive and hybrid bonding end-user markets. Such strength was partially offset by reduced demand for high-end smartphones following a large capacity build in 2021. It also reflected a 37.6% revenue decrease from Chinese customers primarily associated with overcapacity, slower economic growth and Covid-19 related lockdowns. Orders of € 483.3 million decreased by 34.4% as industry conditions materially weakened post the significant assembly capacity build over the past two years. The € 14.8 million decrease in Besi’s net income between the comparable periods principally resulted from a 49.0% increase in development spending as we increased investment in future areas of growth for the next market upcycle.

Our liquidity position continues to build with strong cash flow generation of € 185.2 million during the first nine months of 2022 which supports Besi’s capital allocation policy. We ended the quarter with cash and deposits of € 661.8 million and net cash of € 342.5 million that represented increases of 12.1% and 19.0%, respectively, versus September 30, 2021. Liquidity has improved this year despite the distribution of € 351.3 million to shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases. We completed our prior € 185 million share repurchase program in July and began purchases under our new € 300 million program in August. During the quarter, we repurchased a total of 0.9 million shares for an aggregate amount of € 45.5 million.

Strategically, we are accelerating investment in Besi’s future despite near term headwinds, particularly for our hybrid bonding and wafer level assembly portfolio, as the long-term drivers of our business remain intact and sub 10 nanometer device innovation continues apace. We see continued interest in hybrid bonding applications as the natural extension of Moore’s law to drive technology gains in new heterogeneous 3D architectures for next generation logic, memory, mobile, automotive and data center applications. Besi received orders subsequent to quarter end both for incremental hybrid bonding capacity and for systems incorporated in hybrid bonding integrated lines. Additional orders are anticipated in Q4-22.

The outlook for the assembly equipment market has turned more negative during the quarter as industry conditions weakened, global GDP growth rates decelerated and customer caution increased. At present, it appears to be a traditional industry downturn marked by overcapacity and order pushouts by customers. Downcycles are typically the periods in which Besi looks to improve its business model and plans investment in those products and technologies which will drive revenue growth in the next upcycle. The announcement of new restrictions recently by the US on sales of WFE and assembly equipment to China has added more uncertainty to the industry outlook. We are currently evaluating the proposed restrictions to better understand whether any of Besi’s <10 micron accuracy systems could be subject to such provisions.

For Q4-22, we estimate that revenue will decrease by 15-25% versus Q3-22 reflecting uncertain market conditions and seasonal trends. However, Besi’s gross margin is expected to remain in the 60-62% range due to the flexibility of our production model and anticipated product mix. Further, operating expenses are anticipated to increase by approximately 5% versus Q3-22 principally due to higher R&D spending.”

Book to Bill Ratio0.7x0.7x-1.0x-0.3

Q3-22 revenue of € 168.8 million decreased 21.1% versus Q2-22 due to lower shipments for high-end mobile applications reflecting seasonal influences and lower revenue for high performance computing applications given softer market conditions in data center and mainstream computing end-user markets. Revenue for the quarter was at the favorable end of guidance. Versus Q3-21, revenue decreased by 19.0% as a result of significantly lower demand by Chinese subcontractors for mobile handsets and mainstream electronics applications and, to a lesser extent, to lower demand for high-end smartphones post new product introductions last year. Such weakness was partially offset by revenue growth for high performance computing, hybrid bonding applications and automotive applications.

Orders of € 125.3 million decreased 18.2% versus Q2-22 due primarily to lower demand for computing applications by IDMs and Taiwanese subcontractors and softening market conditions. Order weakness was partially offset by continued strength for automotive and industrial end-user markets both from European IDMs and Asian subcontractors. Versus Q3-21, orders decreased by 40.1% primarily due to a broad-based market decline which started in Q2-22 with particular weakness in high performance computing applications and lower order levels by Chinese subcontractors. Per customer type, IDM orders decreased € 6.1 million, or 7.0%, versus Q2-22 and represented 64% of total orders for the period. Subcontractor orders decreased by € 21.7 million, or 32.7%, versus Q2-22 and represented 36% of total orders.

Besi’s gross margin rose to 62.3% in Q3-22, an increase of 1.3 points and 1.9 points versus Q2-22 and Q3-21, respectively. It was also above prior guidance (60-62%). The improvement was primarily due to a more favorable product mix and forex benefits from an increase in the value of the USD versus the euro.

Q3-22 operating expenses declined by € 3.9 million, or 10.3%, versus Q2-22 principally as a result of a € 2.7 million reduction in share-based compensation expense and lower variable sales related expenses. Operating expenses increased by € 3.6 million, or 11.8%, versus Q3-21 primarily due to increased R&D spending for the development of next generation wafer level assembly systems. As a percentage of revenue, operating expenses increased to 20.2% in Q3-22 versus 17.7% in Q2-22 and 14.6% in Q3-21, primarily due to significantly lower revenue levels.

Besi’s net income reached € 57.3 million in Q3-22, a decrease of € 18.3 million, or 24.2%, versus Q2-22 primarily due to a 21.1% sequential revenue decrease partially offset by higher gross margins and a 10.3% reduction in operating expenses. Versus Q3-21, net income decreased by € 26.9 million, or 31.9%, principally as a result of a 19.0% revenue decrease, increased R&D spending and a higher effective tax rate. As a result, Besi’s net margin of 34.0% decreased slightly versus the 35.4% achieved in Q2-22. Versus Q3-21, net margin declined by 6.4 points, primarily due to lower revenue levels and an increase in Besi’s effective tax rate related to the absence of € 3.7 million in deferred tax benefits recognized in the prior year period.

* Effective tax rate reflects € 6.1 million of tax benefits recognized in YTD-21. Ex such benefits, the effective tax rate would have been 12.7%

YTD-22 revenue of € 585.1 million increased 1.3% reflecting strong demand for Besi’s high performance computing, hybrid bonding and automotive end-user markets. Such growth was partially offset by significantly decreased demand for high-end smartphones and for mobile handsets and mainstream electronics applications by Chinese subcontractors. Of note, revenue from Chinese customers decreased by € 83.7 million, or 37.6%, year-over-year and decreased as a percentage of revenue from 38.5% in YTD-21 to 23.7% in YTD-22.

Orders of € 483.3 million decreased by 34.4% versus YTD-21 due to less favorable market conditions after the significant assembly capacity build over the past two years. In particular, decreased demand reflected lower orders for high-end smartphones post new product introductions in 2021, lower orders for high performance computing applications and significantly decreased demand from Chinese subcontractors due to overcapacity, decelerating economic growth and rolling Covid-19 lockdowns. Order weakness in YTD-22 was partially offset by continued strength for automotive and industrial end-markets, continuing a trend which began in the second half of 2021. IDM and subcontractor orders represented 55% and 45%, respectively, of YTD-22 orders versus 51% and 49%, respectively, in YTD-21.

Besi’s net income decreased by € 14.8 million, or 6.9%, versus YTD-21 to reach € 200.5 million primarily due to increased R&D spending for next generation wafer level assembly systems, increased forex hedging costs and the absence of € 6.1 million in deferred tax benefits recognized in the prior year period.

At the end of Q3-22, Besi had a strong liquidity position with total cash and deposits aggregating € 661.8 million, an increase of € 60.2 million, or 10.0%, versus Q2-22. Growth was primarily due to € 112.7 million of cash flow generated from operations which was used to fund (i) € 45.5 million of share repurchases (ii) € 5.2 million of capitalized development spending and (iii) € 2.6 million of capital expenditures. Similarly, net cash of € 342.5 million at quarter end increased by € 58.5 million, or 20.6%, versus Q2-22 and by € 54.7 million, or 19.0%, versus Q3-21.

Share Repurchase Activity
During the quarter, Besi repurchased 932,971 of its ordinary shares at an average price of € 48.75 per share for a total of € 45.5 million, of which (i) 289,787 shares were repurchased in August under the recently completed € 185 million share repurchase program and (ii) 643,184 shares were repurchased thereafter under the new € 300 million program. Approximately 5.1 million shares were repurchased under the most recently completed € 185 million repurchase program over the period July 2018 to July 29, 2022 at an average price of € 36.10 per share.
