Commenting on the results, Chuck del Prado, CEO of ASM International, said, “In the second half of 2008, the semiconductor equipment industry endured one of the worst declines ever. ASMI’s Front-end sales were impacted throughout the year as customers quickly pulled back on capital spending. Back-end billings remained healthy up to the fourth quarter when the global economy deteriorated further, affecting all of our diverse customers and markets.

“Our primary near-term focus is on financial discipline. Within Front-end we are committed to further reducing the break even level significantly. In Back-end we are also aggressively cutting cost and company-wide we are using cash prudently through this volatile downturn. At the same time, we continue to execute our core technology strategies that will drive our revenue growth and margin expansion when the market improves. We remain confident that our technology leadership and aggressive efficiency improvements in Front-end, combined with our market leadership in Back-end, are key factors in maintaining healthy cash levels at ASMI, and as a result securing ASMI’s leadership position as we emerge from this downturn.”

In the fourth quarter of 2008, net sales of wafer processing equipment (Front-end segment) represented 48% of total net sales. Net sales of assembly and packaging equipment and materials (Back-end segment) represented 52% of total net sales.

In spite of the ongoing softness in Front-end capital equipment spending, the net sales of our Front-end segment increased compared to the third quarter of 2008. This was mainly due to increased sales in the Vertical Furnaces and Transistor Products segments.

The strengthening of the Yen, US dollar and US dollar related currencies against the euro in the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to the third quarter of 2008 impacted total net sales positively by 13%. The strengthening of the Yen, US dollar and US dollar related currencies against the euro in the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2007 impacted total net sales positively by 8%.

The gross profit margin of our Front-end segment decreased from the third quarter of 2008 largely due to EUR 3.9 million write-off on RTP inventory. Without this write-off, the gross margin would have increased to 33.6%, due to higher sales compared to the third quarter of 2008, a good sales mix and lower warranty expenses.

The gross profit margin of our Back-end segment decreased from the third quarter of 2008 as a result of lower utilization.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. The following table shows selling, general and administrative expenses for our Front-end and Back-end segments for the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to the third quarter of 2008 and the fourth quarter of 2007:

Total selling, general and administrative

expenses

   33.6    30.7    35.0    14 %   4 %
                           

The increase in the Front-end segment from the third quarter of 2008 is mainly due to a write-off on accounts receivable and the strengthening of the Yen and US dollar compared to the euro. Furthermore the selling, general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2007 included a positive revaluation of fixed assets held for sales of EUR 0.8 million.

The increase in the Back-end segment from the third quarter of 2008 was due to the strengthening of the Hong Kong dollar against the euro. Without currency effects, the Back-end segment would have realised a decrease.

As a percentage of net sales, selling, general and administrative expenses were 23% in the fourth quarter of 2008, 16% in the third quarter of 2008 and 14% in the fourth quarter of 2007.

Research and Development Expenses. The following table shows research and development expenses for our Front-end and Back-end segments for the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to the third quarter of 2008 and the fourth quarter of 2007:

As a percentage of net sales, research and development expenses were 13% in the fourth quarter of 2008, 10% in the third quarter of 2008 and 9% in the fourth quarter of 2007.

The decrease in the Front-end segment of research and development expenses as compared to the third quarter of 2008 is due to the increased focus on efficiency and prioritization of research and development projects, and would have been larger without the strengthening of the Yen and US dollar against the euro.

The increase in the Back-end segment from the third quarter of 2008 was due to the strengthening of the Hong Kong dollar against the euro. Without currency effects, the Back-end segment would have realised a decrease.

Restructuring Expenses. As announced on 9 January 2009, ASMI plans for a major restructuring of ASM Europe (ASME). This plan involves the transfer from Almere, the Netherlands, of the remaining manufacturing and operational procurement activities for the Vertical Furnace product line to the Company’s Front-end manufacturing operations in Singapore (FEMS) and a reduction of the ASME workforce in Almere. Related to this, we have taken an impairment charge of EUR 7.1 million on the fixed assets of ASME in the Netherlands.

Earnings from Operations. The following table shows earnings (loss) from operations for our Front-end and Back-end segments for the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to the third quarter of 2008 and the fourth quarter of 2007:

The decrease in the Front-end segment as compared to the third quarter of 2008 is mainly due to the write-off on RTP inventory and the impairment on fixed assets of ASM Europe in the Netherlands.

The decrease in the Back-end segment as compared to the third quarter of 2008 reflects the lower sales and the resulting lower gross profit.

Total gross profit

   361.1    270.3    37.8 %   36.2 %   (1.6 )
                            

The gross profit margin of our Front-end segment decreased due to the write-off in the fourth quarter of 2008 of EUR 3.9 million on RTP inventory. Without the write-off the gross margin would have increased by 0.7% percentage points to 32.9%, even though the sales in 2008 decreased by 34% compared to 2007. The gross profit margin was positively impacted by the sales mix and higher gross profit margins in three of our four established product lines.

The gross profit margin of our Back-end segment decreased mainly as a result of the lower utilization.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. The following table shows selling, general and administrative expenses for Front-end and Back-end segments and the percentage change for the full years 2008 and 2007:

Liquidity and capital resources

Net cash provided by operating activities was EUR 28.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to net cash provided by operations of EUR 36.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2007. For the year 2008, net cash provided by operations was EUR 137.4 million as compared to EUR 105.6 million for 2007. The increase noticed in 2008 is primarily the result of decreased working capital. Both our Front-end and Back-end segments achieved positive cash flow from operating activities in 2008.

Net cash used in investing activities was EUR 9.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to EUR 13.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2007. For the year 2008, net cash used in investing activities was EUR 33.0 million as compared to EUR 44.5 million for 2007. Net cash used in investing activities for the year 2008 decreased compared to 2007 as a result of our decision to decrease investments in light of the deteriorating market circumstances.

Net cash used in financing activities was EUR 37.7 million for the fourth quarter as compared to net cash provided by financing activities of EUR 4.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2007. Net cash used in financing activities for 2008 was EUR 121.5 million, compared to EUR 81.3 million in 2007. In 2008, we repaid EUR 5.2 million of short term bank facilities, spent EUR 29.6 million to buy back nominal EUR 38/USD 48 million of convertible subordinated debt, repaid EUR 16.2 million of long-term debt, received EUR 8.0 million in new long-term debt and purchased treasury shares of EUR 36.5 million. In 2008, ASMPT paid EUR 43.4 million to its minority shareholders. With the purchase of treasury shares and the buy-back of convertible debt—in total an amount of EUR 66.1 million—we have in 2008 spent more than the distribution of EUR 49.1 million cash dividend received from ASMPT in 2008.

Net working capital, consisting of accounts receivable, inventories, other current assets, accounts payable, accrued expenses, advance payments from customers and deferred revenue, decreased from EUR 271.9 million at December 31, 2007 to EUR 260.5 million at December 31, 2008. The decrease is primarily the result of decreased sales and manufacturing levels, partly balanced by the effect of the strengthening of Yen, US dollar and US dollar related currencies to the euro. The number of outstanding days of working capital, measured based on annual sales, increased from 104 days at December 31, 2007 to 127 days at December 31, 2008. For the same period, our Front-end segment increased from 125 days to 176 days and our Back-end segment increased from 85 days to 95 days.

At December 31, 2008, the Company’s principal sources of liquidity consisted of EUR 157.3 million in cash and cash equivalents and EUR 86.2 million in useable undrawn bank lines. Approximately EUR 78.4 million of the cash and cash equivalents and EUR 26.2 million of the undrawn bank lines are restricted to use in the Company’s Back-end operations and EUR 11.7 million of the cash and cash equivalents and EUR 29.0 million in undrawn bank lines are restricted to use in the Company’s Front-end operations in Japan.

The net debt of ASMI, excluding Back-end, at 31 December 2008 was EUR 74.7 million. This net debt is the balance of EUR 79.0 million cash and EUR 153.7 million debt. The debt of EUR 153.7 million consists of EUR 106.8 million convertible debt and EUR 46.9 million other debt. Furthermore, ASMI, excluding Back-end, has useable undrawn credit lines of EUR 60.0 million.

EUR 23.6 million of the EUR 46.9 million other debt and EUR 29.0 million of the nominal and useable credit lines are up for renewal in 2009.

The maturity dates for the convertible bonds are May 2010 -for EUR 15.0 million- and December 2011 -for EUR 91.8 million. There are no financial covenants in the convertible bonds.

A large part of the local bank financing for our Front-end operations in Japan -EUR 44.0 million debt and undrawn credit lines of EUR 29.0 million- include financial covenants. The most important covenants, measured at December 31 of each year, include:

 

- no two loss making years in a row (ASM Japan was profitable in the year 2008)

 

- not an annual loss in excess of a certain percentage of the equity of ASM Japan

 

- accounts receivable are subject to a pledge in case the total debt of ASM Japan would be in excess of 60% of sales

ASMI is guarantor with respect to € 8.9 million debt of ASM Japan and with respect to € 11.9 million credit lines of ASM Japan of which € 7.1 million is outstanding.

We are in compliance with these financial covenants as per 31 December 2008 and we believe that the financial position of ASM Japan is such that we can expect to be in compliance in the next twelve months. Therefore we believe that these financial covenants won’t have an impact on the availability of the debt financing of ASM Japan and the undrawn credit lines of ASM Japan in 2009, with the proviso that part of the debt and credit lines are up for renewal in 2009.

The Company has a bank credit facility with Rabobank of EUR 50.0 million, of which EUR 31.0 million was useable as of 31 December 2008. The facility, available through February 28, 2010, is secured by a portion of the Company’s shareholding in ASMPT. The available part of this credit facility can be increased to the original EUR 50.0 million by increasing the portion of the Company’s shareholding in ASMPT by which this facility is secured. The bank credit facilities include two financial covenants: a solvency ratio and a total net debt/equity ratio. These financial covenants are measured twice each year, at 30 June and 31 December. We are in compliance with these financial covenants as at 31 December 2008 and we believe that the financial position of ASMI is such that we can expect to be in compliance in the next twelve months.

We have developed forecasts and projections of cash flows and liquidity needs for the upcoming year taking into account the current market conditions, reasonably possible changes in trading performance based on such conditions, and our ability to modify our cost structure as a result of changing economic conditions and sales levels and the fact that we have already started with the implementation of the restructuring program. We have also considered in the forecasts the total cash balances amounting to EUR 157.3 million as at 31 December 2008, available borrowings, the ability to renew debt arrangements and to access additional indebtedness and whether or not we will maintain compliance with our financial covenants.

 

11


Based on this, we believe that our cash on hand at the end of 2008 is adequate to fund our operations, our investments in capital expenditures and to fulfill our existing contractual obligations for the next twelve months.

Dividend

Based on market circumstances, ASMI will not propose to pay a cash dividend in 2009. In the current economic environment where timing of an industry upturn is extremely uncertain, cash preservation is an imperative. Dividends from ASMPT, which are expected to be at reduced levels in 2009, will first be used to replenish cash reserves as we spent in 2008 EUR 17.0 million more on the buyback of shares and of convertible bonds than ASMPT dividends received in 2008.

Over the past two years, ASMI honored its commitment to use the dividend stream from ASM Pacific Technology, Ltd. to increase shareholder value. In 2007, EUR 49.1 million received from Back-end was fully spent with EUR 35.5 million used in the buyback of convertible debt, EUR 8.2 million on share repurchases, and EUR 5.4 million on a cash dividend to shareholders. In 2008, the EUR 49.1 million received from Back-end, and EUR 17.0 million in expected future ASMPT cash dividends, were employed to repurchase 2.6 million common shares for EUR 36.5 million, and retire US$ 48 million nominal amount of the 5 1/4% convertible subordinated bonds due 2010 for EUR 29.6 million.

Outlook

Entering 2009, it is evident that the global macroeconomic environment continues to prolong the unprecedented downturn in the semiconductor, semiconductor equipment and related electronic industries. Although analysts differ in their predictions for a sector recovery, they do agree that 2009 will be another difficult year for semiconductor equipment companies. This applies to both the wafer processing and the assembly and packaging markets.

With the state of the global economy and the semiconductor equipment industry still so unpredictable, we are not planning to provide an update on our 2009 Front-end Profitability Roadmap targets at this time. We view it as more important to fully focus on taking aggressive steps to further lower our Front-end breakeven level with the main target for 2009 to lower the net earnings break-even level from approximately EUR 90 million per quarter in 2008 to approximately EUR 70 million per quarter in the second half of 2009 (based on 2008 foreign exchange rates and excluding additional non-cash interest charges due to changes in US-GAAP).

ASMI’s first quarter 2009 results will reflect the impact of industry conditions. Due to the diminished bookings levels in recent quarters, backlogs in both Front-end and Back-end operations are well below recent historical levels. This will have a significant impact on both our Front-end and Back-end operations in the first quarter.

Based on the severity of the industry downturn and the lack of visibility regarding demand, we believe the coming quarters will continue to be challenging. In the current environment, we continue to drive down costs to minimal levels that align with our customers’ maintenance business requirements.

As before, we remain steadfast in our belief that our strong base of leading-edge technologies, aligned with our customer roadmaps, will drive ASMI’s growth path when the industry shows signs of recovery.

(1) The calculation of diluted net earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in earnings of the Company. Only instruments that have a dilutive effect on net earnings are included in the calculation. The assumed conversion results in adjustment in the weighted average number of common shares and net earnings due to the related impact on interest expense. The calculation is done for each reporting period individually. For the three months period and year ended December 31, 2008, the effect of a potential conversion of convertible subordinated debt into 8,761,415 and 9,660,739 common shares was anti-dilutive and no adjustments have been reflected in the diluted weighted average numbers of common shares and net earnings for these periods.

RECONCILIATION US GAAP—IFRS

Accounting principles under IFRS

ASMI’s primary consolidated financial statements are and will continue to be prepared in accordance with US GAAP. However, ASMI is required under Dutch law to report its Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”). As a result of the differences between IFRS and US GAAP that are applicable to ASMI, the Consolidated Statement of Operations and Consolidated Balance Sheet reported in accordance with IFRS differ from those reported in accordance with US GAAP. The major differences relate to goodwill, minority interest, convertible subordinated notes, development expenses, option plans, pension plans and preferred shares.

The reconciliation between IFRS and US GAAP is as follows:
