TowerJazz suffers from Micron snub

by on06 November 2013

But revenue still up

Israeli chipmaker TowerJazz appears to have shrugged off its snub from US chipmaker Micron and reported revenue was up from the second quarter. However, the company reported a sharp drop in third-quarter revenue and profit due to a decline in sales to Micron. TowerJazz said that there had been a contractual decrease in sales to Micron at its plant in Japan. Excluding the Micron reduction, revenue rose by $4 million.

TowerJazz said on Wednesday adjusted net income was $12.2 million, down from $31.6 million a year earlier. Revenue fell to $132.6 million from $154.6 million a year earlier but was up 6 percent from the second quarter. TowerJazz had expected a third-quarter revenue of between $130 million and $140 million.

For the fourth quarter, it projects revenue of $133-$143 million, compared with Chardan's forecast of $142 million. TowerJazz Chief Executive Russell Ellwanger said in a press release that the sequential growth we have demonstrated in the first quarter through the third quarter was in line with our expectations based on strong alignment to customer forecast and project execution.
