Amkor Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMKR), a leading provider of semiconductor packaging and test services, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, with net sales of $767 million, net income of $50 million, and earnings per diluted share of $0.21. Net income includes a net gain of $18 million ($0.08 per diluted share) related to the sale of Amkor's Japanese subsidiary to J-Devices, Amkor's 60% owned joint venture in Japan.
“We delivered solid second quarter results that were consistent with our expectations,” said Steve Kelley, Amkor's president and chief executive officer. “Sales were up 10% sequentially and 3% year-over-year, with a corresponding improvement in our gross margin. We are poised to grow faster than the semiconductor industry in 2014 and improve our profitability.”
Selected financial information for the second quarter 2014 is as follows:
- Net Sales: $767 million, up 10% from $696 million in the prior quarter, and up 3% from $746 million in the second quarter of 2013
- Gross Margin: 19.6%, compared to 18.5% in the prior quarter, and 18.5% in the second quarter of 2013
- Net Income: $50 million, compared to net income of $21 million in the prior quarter, and $30 million in the second quarter of 2013. Second quarter 2014 net income includes a net gain of $18 million related to the sale of a subsidiary to J-Devices
- Earnings Per Diluted Share: $0.21, compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.09 in the prior quarter, and $0.14 in the second quarter of 2013. Second quarter 2014 earnings per diluted share includes $0.08 related to the sale of a subsidiary to J-Devices
Cash and cash equivalents were $526 million, and total debt was $1.5 billion, at June 30, 2014.
“We expect record sales for the third quarter and a strong second half of 2014,” noted Kelley. “The launch of flagship mobile devices with high Amkor content is expected to drive third quarter growth of 9% to 15%, both sequentially and year-over-year, after normalizing for the sale of our Japanese subsidiary.”
“We see further, customer driven opportunities to grow our sales in the first half of 2015, and are increasing our full year 2014 capital expenditures to around $675 million to capture these opportunities. Nearly all of the incremental investment will be for advanced package capacity and leading-edge testers. The demand for this capacity is spread across many customers, and we believe that these investments are the foundation for our long-term growth,” continued Kelley.
Based upon currently available information, we have the following expectations for the third quarter 2014:
- Net sales of $815 million to $865 million, up 6% to 13% from both the prior quarter and year-over-year. After normalizing for the sales of our divested Japanese subsidiary, net sales are expected to increase 9% to 15% from both periods
- Gross margin of 20% to 22%
- Net income of $47 million to $70 million, or $0.20 to $0.29 per diluted share
- Full year 2014 capital expenditures of around $675 million

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.
