Gemplus International S.A. (Euronext: LU0121706294 - GEM and NASDAQ: GEMP), a world leading provider of secure card solutions, today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2006. In millions of euros Q3 2006 Q3 2005 Year-on-year change Net sales 219.3 247.9 -11.5% Adjusted for currency fluctuations, -8.9% disposals and acquisitions Gross profit 58.5 82.8 -29.4% Gross margin 26.7% 33.4% - 6.7 pts Operating expenses 61.2 61.5 -0.5% Operating income (loss) -2.7 21.3 NM Operating margin -1.2% 8.6% -9.8 pts Attributable net income (loss)[1] -8.0 20.9 NM Free cash flow[2] 28.0 -20.1 NM Cash and cash equivalents 234.6 400.8 -41.5% Per share data (in euros) Earnings per share (fully diluted) -0.01 0.03 NM The combination creating Gemalto, a world leader in digital security, is progressing well: Gemalto owns 94.56% of the share capital of Gemplus (and 94.68% of the voting rights) since the close of the first round of the public exchange tender offer filed by Gemalto for the securities issued by Gemplus. Following this success, the exchange offer was reopened at the same exchange ratio. It remains open to allow for an independent expert to assess the evaluation methodology and price of the sell-out procedure[3]. Gemalto has also indicated its intention to reserve its right to conduct a squeeze-out, either after the close of the reopened offer or during the sell-out period which follows the close of the reopened offer, assuming that more than 95% of the voting rights of Gemplus are held by Gemalto. Third quarter 2006 financial review - Income statement Third quarter 2006 highlights: - Net sales down 11.5% (-8.9% currency adjusted) mainly due to Telecom. - Gross margin at 26.7%, with lower margins in all business segments. - Operating loss at 2.7 million euros, including 4.3 million euros of combination related costs. - Attributable net loss at 8.0 million euros. Revenue in all regions was strongly impacted by the overall weak performance in Telecom. However, in Asia, strong growth in ID & Security and Financial Services drove a 5.6% year-on-year adjusted[4] revenue growth, even with some decrease in Telecom. In EMEA[5], adjusted[4] net sales were down 10.8% year-on-year, due to lower sales in Financial Services and in Telecom. In the Americas, adjusted[4] net sales were down 13.3% year-on-year, notwithstanding good growth in Financial Services. Revenue by region In millions of euros Q3 2006 Q3 2005 % change Adjusted[4] change (%) EMEA 118.5 133.3 -11.1% -10.8% Asia 39.8 39.2 +1.4% +5.6% Americas 61.0 75.4 -19.1% -13.3% Total 219.3 247.9 -11.5% -8.9% As a result, Asia accounted for 18.1% of Group revenue compared with 15.8% for the third quarter 2005, despite adverse currency fluctuations. Conversely, the share of the Americas decreased to 27.8%, compared with 30.4%, a year ago. Despite 3.6 million euros of combination related costs, operating expenses were flat. Operating loss was 2.7 million euros, due to lower sales and low gross margin, in spite of good control of operating expenses. Each quarter, the Company reassesses the recognition of its deferred tax assets, which led to an additional income tax charge of 3.2 million euros this quarter. - Balance sheet and cash flow statement Third quarter 2006 highlights: - Free cash flow of 28.0 million euros. The Group's cash position remains strong at 234.6 million euros, up 26.3 million euros compared to June 30, 2006. Free cash flow of 28.0 million euros mainly reflects an improvement in working capital requirement. Compared to December 31, 2005, cash is down 183.8 million euros, largely due to a 164.4 million euros outflow related to the distribution in June 2006 of reserves (share premium) to shareholders. Segment analysis - Telecom Third quarter 2006 highlights: - Continued strong demand in wireless: shipments up 32% year-on-year, to 116 million units, driven by emerging markets. - Wireless ASP down 35% year-on-year, currency adjusted, reflecting heavy price pressure. In millions of euros Q3 Q3 % Adjusted[4] 2006 2005 change change (%) Wireless products & services net sales 128.6 154.0 -16.5% -13.8% Wireless gross profit 42.7 62.3 -31.4% Wireless gross margin 33.2% 40.4% -7.2 pts Prepaid phone cards & scratchcards net 11.4 13.5 -16.8% sales Prepaid phone cards & scratchcards 1.4 0.9 +53.0% gross profit Prepaid phone cards & scratchcards 12.3% 6.7% +5.6 pts gross margin Telecom net sales 139.9 167.5 -16.5% -13.6% Telecom gross profit 44.1 63.2 -30.2% Telecom gross margin 31.5% 37.7% -6.2 pts Telecom operating expenses 37.0 37.9 -2.4% As a % of sales 26.4% 22.6% +3.8 pts Telecom operating income 7.1 25.3 NM Operating margin 5.1% 15.1% -10.0 pts Wireless revenue: - Wireless products & services revenue[6] was down 16.5% year-on-year (down 13.8%, currency adjusted), to 128.6 million euros. - Wireless shipments grew 32% year-on-year, to 116 million units, largely driven by emerging countries. Volumes were below the Group expectations due to weaker demand in developed economies. - High-end card shipments (3G and above) grew 108%. They accounted for 13% of the third quarter total, compared to 8% a year ago, despite delays in migration to high-end products at several customers. - Wireless average selling price (ASP) was down 10% quarter-on-quarter and 35% year-on-year, both currency adjusted, due to heavy price pressure and delays in product mix improvement, as well as a shift in the regional mix. The decline in Wireless gross margin mainly reflects strong price pressure and delays in product mix improvement. - Financial Services Third quarter 2006 highlights: - This quarter shows a pause in EMV[7] deliveries. In millions of euros Q3 2006 Q3 2005 % change Adjusted[4] change (%) Net sales 52.2 58.9 -11.3% -9.6% Gross profit 8.6 13.7 -37.2% Gross margin as a % of sales 16.5% 23.3% -6.8 pts Operating expenses 12.7 13.1 -2.7% As a % of sales 24.4% 22.2% +2.2 pts Operating income (loss) -4.1 0.6 NM Operating margin as a % of sales -7.9% 1.1% -9.0 pts EMV deliveries show a pause despite accelerating rollouts in Latin America and in Asia. In total, Gemplus shipped 20.8 million units of payment microprocessor cards during the third quarter, down 6% year-on-year, reflecting maturity of certain markets (UK, France, Turkey) and delays in EMV rollout in Southern Europe and in some emerging countries. However, shipments are up 24% year-to-date at 63.9 million units. Payment microprocessor card revenue was down 17% year-on-year and up 8% year-to-date. Revenue for the third quarter reflects price pressure in mature markets and a greater share of modules in emerging countries. Gross margin was down 6.8 percentage points mainly due to lower volumes and an unfavourable regional mix in smart payment. - Identity and Security Third quarter 2006 highlights: - Strong growth led by deployment of e-passports. In millions of euros Q3 2006 Q3 2005 % change Adjusted[4] change (%) Net sales 27.2 21.5 +26.4% +29.0% Gross profit 5.8 5.9 -1.9% Gross margin as a % of sales 21.3% 27.4% -6.1 pts Operating expenses 11.4 10.5 +8.5% As a % of sales 41.9% 48.8% -6.9 pts Operating income (loss) -5.6 -4.6 NM Operating margin as a % of sales -20.6% -21.3% +0.7 pt Growth was driven by Government ID projects, notably the ongoing deployment of e-passports, including the first deliveries in Poland. However, revenue does not meet the Group expectations due to Government ID and Corporate Security projects which did not materialize as quickly as expected. Gross margin was down 6.1 percentage points reflecting industrialization ramp-up and some start-up quality issues. Year-to-date 2006 financial review (9-months period) - Net sales up 2.9%, driven by strong growth in ID and Security. - Gross margin at 29.8% reflecting strong price pressure in wireless. - Operating margin at 3.1%. In millions of euros YTD 2006 YTD 2005 % change Adjusted[4] change (%) Net sales 696.9 677.2 +2.9% -2.2% Of which Telecom 450.5 474.9 -5.2% -6.4% Of which Financial Services 163.7 147.1 +11.3% +4.5% Of which ID & Security 82.8 55.2 +50.0% +16.0% Gross profit 207.7 224.7 -7.6% NA Gross margin 29.8% 33.2% -3.4 pts NA Operating expenses 186.2 173.5 +7.3% NA As a % of sales 26.7% 25.6% +1.1 pt NA Operating income 21.5 51.1 -58.0% Operating margin 3.1% 7.6% -4.5 pts NA Attributable net income 13.4 49.9 -73.1% Sales in the first nine months 2006 was down 2.2% adjusted[4], due to Telecom, despite strong growth in ID and Security and sustained demand in Financial Services. On a geographical basis, ID and Security and Financial Services drove a 4.6% adjusted[4] revenue growth in the Americas. Adjusted[4] revenue was down 4.3% in Asia, and 5.2% in EMEA, due to Telecom. Gross margin decrease was due to strong price pressure in wireless, a shift in the business mix, and Setec purchase accounting, in spite of the reversal of a provision for a patent claim for a total amount of 9 million euros. Operating expenses were stable excluding the 3.6 million euros combination related costs booked this year, the reversal of a 5.2 million euros litigation provision booked last year, and the impact of the Setec acquisition. Due to the lower gross margin and notwithstanding good control of operating expenses, operating margin was 3.1%. Creation of Gemalto On June 2, 2006, Axalto and Gemplus announced a major step of their combination project to create Gemalto. The contribution in kind, by Texas Pacific Group and the Quandt family entities, of their interests in Gemplus International S.A. (in aggregate 43.6% of Gemplus share capital) to Axalto Holding N.V. was completed on the basis of 2 Axalto shares for every 25 Gemplus shares. On the same day, Axalto Holding N.V., renamed Gemalto N.V., filed a public exchange tender offer for the remaining shares and warrants issued by Gemplus. Prior to the contribution in kind, Gemplus had initiated the distribution of reserves (share premium) of EUR0.26 per share to all of its shareholders on record upon market close of the same day. On July 6, 2006, the offering document filed by Gemalto received the visa No. 06-252 from the "Autorité des Marchés Financiers" (AMF) in Paris, the French stock market authority. Gemalto owns 94.56% of the share capital and 94.68% of the voting rights of Gemplus since the close of the first round of the public exchange tender offer initiated by Gemalto for the shares and warrants issued by Gemplus. The exchange offer was reopened on September 12, 2006, at the same exchange ratio of 2 Gemalto shares for every 25 Gemplus shares. It remains open to allow for an independent expert to assess the evaluation methodology and price of the sell-out procedure. Such sell-out price will be communicated to the market immediately after completion of the independent expert's assessment. Gemalto has also indicated its intention to reserve its right to conduct a squeeze-out, either after the close of the reopened offer or during the sell-out period which follows the close of the reopened offer, assuming that Gemalto holds more than 95% of the voting rights of Gemplus.
