STMicroelectronics Reports 2009 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results

- Fourth quarter net revenues up 13.6% sequentially to $2,583 million

(PRNewswire) — STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) reported financial results for the 2009 fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2009.

President and CEO Carlo Bozotti commented, "ST's fourth quarter financial results reflect a positive finish to a very difficult year for ST, the semiconductor industry and the global economy.

"Our fourth quarter net revenues increased 13.6% sequentially, above our outlook range and our gross margin came in at 37%, above the midpoint of our outlook range. Excluding restructuring charges, ST returned to an operating income of $90 million for the quarter.*

"The Company's stronger than forecasted quarterly sequential revenue performance was thanks to growth in all regions and market segments, with all segments, except Telecom, posting double-digit growth.

"Despite the challenging economic environment, ST made significant progress over the course of 2009 by successfully delivering on key actions announced earlier in the year. First, we protected and then enhanced our cash position, improving our net financial position by $965 million to end the year with a net cash position of $420 million.* Second, we made excellent progress in lowering our cost base with a $1 billion savings plan to be completed by about mid-2010. As a result, we improved our financial performance having generated, as anticipated, some points of operating margin and net operating cash flow equal to 8.6% of sales despite an unfavorable currency environment.*

"2009 has been a year of severe losses for ST but we are encouraged by the progress we made throughout the year. 2010 will be a year of great opportunities for ST. Our efforts to strengthen our product portfolio will allow us to grow organically and to participate in new markets and the completion of our major restructuring program will continue to substantially improve our cost structure and competitiveness."


(*) Net operating cash flow, net financial position and operating income excluding restructuring charges  are non-U.S. GAAP measures. Please refer to Attachment A for additional information explaining why the Company believes these measures are important and for a  reconciliation to U.S. GAAP.
