COMMENT

“ASMI continued its strong growth path in the third quarter,” said Benjamin Loh, President and Chief Executive Officer of ASM International. “Order intake surged to a new quarterly record of €625 million and was driven by continued strong logic/foundry demand and in part also by orders for shipment in 2022. As already announced on September 28, 2021, order intake exceeded previous guidance of €510-530 million. Compared to the same period last year, sales in the third quarter increased by 38%. Revenue, at €433 million, was slightly above the high end of the guidance of €400-430 million, despite continued tight supply chain conditions during the quarter. We are currently seeing some improvements but overall supply chain conditions are expected to remain challenging in Q4. Thanks to our team for another quarter of strong execution and to our suppliers and customers for their continued solid support and cooperation.”

OUTLOOK

For Q4, on a currency comparable level, we expect sales of €470-500 million. Q4 bookings, on a currency comparable level, are expected to be around €600 million. Starting 2022, we will stop providing guidance on order intake as it has become clear in the last two quarters in which actual order intake was significantly higher than guided that it is increasingly more challenging in the current environment to provide a meaningful outlook. With a continued strong momentum in the second half of the year, the wafer fab equipment (WFE) market is expected to grow by a mid-to-high thirties percentage in 2021.

SHARE BUYBACK PROGRAM

On July 28, 2021, ASMI announced the start of the €100 million share buyback program. As of September 30, 2021, 56.4% of the share buyback program was completed at an average share price of €328.07.

ASMI INVESTOR DAY 2021

On September 28, 2021, ASMI held its first Investor Day, in which ASMI’s management shared the company’s strategy, how to create value and drive growth through innovation. Highlights included:

  • Targeting revenue of €2.8-€3.4 billion by 2025 (2020-2025 CAGR of 16%-21%), gross margins of 46%-50% in 2021-2025, and operating margins of 26%-31% in 2021-2025;
  • Targeting Net Zero emissions by 2035 and 100% renewable electricity by 2024;
  • Single-wafer ALD market expected to increase from $1.5 billion in 2020 to $3.1-3.7 billion by 2025;
  • Further capacity expansion of our new manufacturing facility in Singapore to be production ready by early 2023.

NET ZERO ANNOUNCEMENT

In its Investor Day on September 28, 2021, ASMI also announced its target to achieve Net Zero emissions by 2035.

ASMI plans to source 100% of its electricity from renewable sources for all of its global operations from 2024 onward. Relative to its 2020 baseline, this would represent a ~90% absolute reduction of ASM Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions.
