Revenue for the three months ended March 30, 2008 was $203.1 million, compared to $151.8 million in the first quarter of 2007.
Gross margin was $47.9 million or 23.6% of revenue for the quarter ended March 30, 2008, compared to $14.9 million or 9.8% of revenue for the first quarter of 2007.
Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2008 were $54.7 million or 26.9% of revenue, compared to $57.8 million or 38.1% of revenue for the first quarter of 2007.
Operating loss was $6.8 million during the current quarter, compared to an operating loss of $42.9 million in the prior year quarter.
Net interest expense for the first quarter of 2008 was $15.7 million, compared to $14.4 million in the first quarter of 2007.
Net loss for the three months ended March 30, 2008 was $67.9 million, compared to a net loss of $67.0 million in the first quarter of 2007. The net loss results were negatively impacted by a foreign currency loss of $42.9 million in the first quarter of 2008, compared to a foreign currency loss of $7.4 million in the first quarter of 2007. A substantial portion of this net foreign currency loss resulted from a non-cash translation loss recorded for intercompany borrowings at our Korea subsidiary that are denominated in U.S. dollars.
Sang Park, Chairman and CEO of MagnaChip Semiconductor, commented, "We continued to make progress in 2008 vs. 2007, with an increase in revenues of 33.8% vs. the first quarter of 2007. During the quarter, we began sampling our new line of power management products as part of an overall strategy to leverage our analog and mixed signal technology platform to expand our market opportunities. We expanded our image solutions business to new end markets and increased our account penetration in our display solutions business. In our Semiconductor Manufacturing Services business, we strengthened our specialty technology portfolio and achieved a design win at a recognized leader in the microcontroller market. Our product pipeline is strong, and our design win activity is at an all-time high as we enter into the second quarter."
Robert Krakauer, President and CFO of MagnaChip Semiconductor, said, "We continued to make progress in the first quarter of 2008. Our gross margin and operating profit improved year over year, as we focused on maintaining our cost competitiveness. Though some of our markets are slower than expected, we believe we are well-positioned for continued performance improvement throughout 2008."

Use of Non-US GAAP Financial Information
To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a US GAAP basis, MagnaChip Semiconductor uses non-US GAAP measures of gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss), that are US GAAP gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss) adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses or gains, referred to as special items. Non-US GAAP adjusted gross profit; operating income (loss) and net income (loss) measure give an indication of our baseline performance before other charges that are considered by management to be outside of our core operating results. In addition, our non-US GAAP adjusted measure of gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss) are among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss) prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.
