Outlook

TowerJazz expects revenues for its 2014 third quarter ending September 30, 2014 to be $225 million with an upward or downward range of 5%. Mid-range guidance represents 70% year over year growth. The third quarter of 2014 will be the first quarter to realize no revenue from Micron, hence the mid-range guidance represents a year over year revenue growth of 20% for all customers (excluding Micron and Panasonic) and 13% quarter over quarter growth.

During the quarter, the Company received and is now evaluating offers and opportunities to strengthen its balance sheet by exchanging its existing debt with longer term, non-equity debt vehicles.

Management Remarks

Russell Ellwanger, Chief Executive Officer of TowerJazz, commented, “The second quarter was our first integrating TPSCo activities and consolidating the revenues. There were no operational surprises against our plans and better than expected business activities. We closed negotiations with 3rd party customers, including high end CIS and top-tier IDM transfers, which should reach annual revenues of well beyond $100 million within the next 3 years. We expect these first contracts and agreements to begin volume production ramp in the second half of 2015.

“The core TowerJazz business grew significantly at 50% and 40%, for our top 5 and top 10 customers, respectively, when comparing their revenues in the second quarter of 2014 to the same period of last year. For these top customers, we expect continuous growth throughout the year, with already 11% and 20%, respectively, comparing the second quarter revenues to the first quarter of 2014.

“Second quarter saw a record number of masks full sets entering our Israeli and US fabs of over 240 vs. 130 for the same period of 2013. The first half of 2014 increase in new masks of 62% vs. the first half of 2013 is a definite indication that we are providing customers’ satisfaction in growing market segments, enabling continued significant growth in 2015 and 2016, as these products reach peak volume production.

“We are seeing strong market demand from customers being served by all of our business units, which we are well poised to serve both organically and with the newly added operational and technical capabilities of TPSCo, enabling us to exceed our $1 billion annual revenue target.”

(*)

Fully diluted earnings per share calculation and presentation are not required under GAAP for the second quarter of 2014, since the company did not have net profit. Hence, fully diluted earnings per share is not different than basic earnings per share for the second quarter of 2014. Had fully diluted earnings per share calculation and presentation been required for the second quarter of 2014, the company would have added 7 million shares underlying its capital notes, 4 million shares underlying options and warrants, 11 million possible shares underlying notes series F due December 2015 (unless repayable with cash), 11 million possible shares underlying notes series F due December 2016 (unless repayable with cash) and 6 million possible shares underlying Jazz notes due December 2018 (unless repayable with cash).

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
