Dr. Tzu-Yin Chiu, SMIC's Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director commented, "SMIC is seeing robust demand across the board and we reiterate our growth target of 20% compounded annual growth from 2016 to 2019. In 2016, SMIC is growing in excess of 28% YoY. We are forecasting growth for both 4Q16 and 1Q17 given current visibility. We are on track to achieve another record year of revenue and net profit attributable to SMIC.

We had a fantastic third quarter, achieving our 7th consecutive quarter of revenue growth and 18th consecutive quarter of profit. Our revenue was a record high of $774.8 million, representing a growth of 36.0% YoY and 12.3% QoQ. Our net profit attributable to SMIC was also a record high of 113.6 million, a growth of 37.4% YoY and 16.3% QoQ. This marks the first time our quarterly net profit exceeds $100 million, and the second consecutive quarter to exceed 10% ROE.

We are still experiencing robust demand from various regions, applications, and nodes, and we are addressing the demand opportunities by laying the foundation for continued growth with prudent expansion to meet customers' needs. In the last month, we announced several new fab construction projects to address our diverse demand. Actual production capacity will only be executed with careful planning to meet overlapping conditions of assured customer demand, technological readiness, and sustained profitability."

Safe Harbor Statements
(Under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995)

This press release contains, in addition to historical information, "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements, including statements under "Fourth Quarter 2016 Guidance", "CapEx Summary" and the statements contained in the quotes of our CEO are based on SMIC's current assumptions, expectations and projections about future events. SMIC uses words like "believe," "anticipate," "intend," "estimate," "expect," "project," "target" and similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. These forward-looking statements involve significant risks, both known and unknown, uncertainties and other factors that may cause SMIC's actual performance, financial condition or results of operations to be materially different from those suggested by the forward-looking statements including, among others, risks associated with the cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry, changes in demand for our products, competition in our markets, our reliance on a small number of customers, orders or judgments from pending litigation, intensive intellectual property lawsuits in semiconductor industry and financial stability in end markets, general economic conditions and fluctuations in currency exchange rates.

Investors should consider the information contained in SMIC's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including its annual report on 20-F filed with the SEC on April 25, 2016, especially the consolidated financial statements, and such other documents that SMIC may file with the SEC or The Hong Kong Stock Exchange Limited ("SEHK") from time to time, including current reports on Form 6-K. Other unknown or unpredictable factors also could have material adverse effects on SMIC's future results, performance or achievements. In light of these risks, uncertainties, assumptions and factors, the forward-looking events discussed in this press release may not occur. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date stated, or if no date is stated, as of the date of this press release. Except as may be required by law, SMIC undertakes no obligation and does not intend to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

About Non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("Non-GAAP") Financial Measures

To supplement SMIC's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with IFRS, SMIC uses in this press release non-GAAP measures of operating results that are adjusted to exclude finance cost, depreciation and amortization, income tax expenses, the effect of employee bonus accrual, government funding and gain from the disposal of living quarters. This earnings release also includes fourth quarter 2016 guidance for non-GAAP operating expenses. The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with IFRS. This earnings release includes EBITDA margin and non-GAAP operating expenses which consist of total operating expenses as adjusted to exclude the effect of employee bonus accrual, government funding and gain from the disposal of living quarters. These non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated or presented in accordance with, and are not alternatives or substitutes for financial measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, and should be read only in conjunction with the Group's financial measures prepared in accordance with IFRS. The Group's non-GAAP financial measures may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

SMIC believes that use of these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates investors' and management's comparisons to SMIC's historical performance. The Group's management regularly uses these non-GAAP financial measures to understand, manage and evaluate the Group's business and make financial and operational decisions.

The accompanying table has more information and reconciliations of each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis because the effect of these adjustment items excluded for the purpose of non-GAAP operating expenses guidance are subject to some unpredictable conditions that cannot be estimated with reasonable certainty.

  • The change in finance costs was mainly due to government funding recognized as a reduction of interest expense in 3Q16.
  • Foreign exchange losses were mainly due to a devaluation of RMB against USD. Foreign monetary assets mainly consist of cash and cash equivalent and accounts receivables in RMB. Foreign monetary liabilities mainly consist of loans, short-term and medium-term notes, accounts payables and other payables in RMB.
  • The change in other gains or losses, net was mainly due to 1) $2.3 million gain in 3Q16 from the fair value change, compared to $18.0 million loss in 2Q16, in respect of the cross-currency swap agreements for the purpose of hedging against the foreign exchange risk relating to the RMB denominated liabilities including bank loans, short-term notes and medium-term notes and 2) $3.4 million gain in 3Q16, compared to $3.7 million loss in 2Q16, was the fair value change recognized in relating to the put option, which was granted by Jiangsu Changjiang Electronics Technology Co., Ltd ("JCET"), to the Group to sell the shares of Suzhou Changjiang Electric Xinke Investment Co., Ltd ("Changjiang Xinke") to JCET, pursuant to an investment exit agreement entered into by SilTech Shanghai (a subsidiary of SMIC), JCET and Jiangsu Xinchao Technology Group Co., Ltd (a substantial shareholder of JCET).
  • The change in share of loss of investment using equity method was mainly due to the loss attributable to Changjiang Xinke. On April 27, 2016, SilTech Shanghai entered into a disposal agreement with JCET, pursuant to which SilTech Shanghai agreed to sell the shares of Changjiang Xinke to JCET in consideration of RMB664 million, which will be satisfied by JCET's issue of 43,229,166 shares of JCET to SilTech Shanghai at RMB15.36 per share. This transaction has not closed as of the date of this earnings release and is waiting for the approval from China Securities Regulatory Commission.

   Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to

GAAP Measures

(121,068)


(113,411)

   EBITDA margin(2)

39.1%

Note:
(1)   Non-GAAP operating expenses are defined as operating expenses adjusted to exclude the effect of employee bonus accrual, government funding and gain from the disposal of living quarters. SMIC reviews non-GAAP operating expenses together with operating expenses to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make financial and operational decisions. The Group also believes it is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance. However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact our net profit for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider the non-GAAP operating expenses in isolation from or as an alternative to operating expenses prepared in accordance with IFRS.

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of the non-GAAP operating expenses to its most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with IFRS, for the periods indicated.

(2)   EBITDA margin is defined as profit for the period excluding the impact of the finance cost, depreciation and amortization, and income tax expense divided by revenue.  SMIC uses EBITDA margin as a measure of operating performance; for planning purposes, including the preparation of the Group's annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of the Group's business; to evaluate the effectiveness of the Group's business strategies; and in communications with SMIC's board of directors concerning the Group's financial performance. Although EBITDA is widely used by investors to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items, such as net finance cost, income tax benefit and expense and depreciation and amortization that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon their respective financing structures and accounting policies, the book values of their assets, their capital structures and the methods by which their assets were acquired, EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Group's results of operations as reported under IFRS. Some of these limitations are: it does not reflect the Group's capital expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or other contractual commitments; it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Group's working capital needs; it does not reflect finance cost; it does not reflect cash requirements for income taxes; that, although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated or amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and these measures do not reflect any cash requirements for these replacements; and that other companies in SMIC's industry may calculate these measures differently than SMIC does, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of EBITDA and EBITDA margin to their most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with IFRS, for the periods indicated.
