NEWS RELEASE


Melexis Announces Robust FY2015 Results


Ieper, Belgium, 10th February 2016 - Melexis, a global microelectronics engineering company, has posted record-breaking end of year financial results. For the first time in its history, annual sales revenue figures that exceed the Euro 400 million mark (400.1 million) have been posted. This represents a year-on-year sales growth greater than 20%. Melexis’ gross profit margin has risen to Euro 192.1 million, which is an increase of 19% compared to the previous year.

Among the main sources of revenue growth were the company’s magnetic sensor and sensor interface offerings, as well as its products for in-vehicle networking, wireless sensing and far infra-red (FIR) sensing. Following on from these results, the Melexis board of directors has proposed to pay out a total dividend of Euro 1.90 gross per share to its shareholders.

"Melexis is in a very strong position financially. We are proud to achieve such results,” states Françoise Chombar, Melexis’ CEO. “This performance clearly demonstrates that the Melexis product portfolio is fully capable of addressing the many challenges our customers face in developing next generation car models, as well as enabling major advances to be realized in industrial, home automation and medical sectors.” “Melexis continues to invest in new equipment, along with funding extensive research and development activities,” she adds. “Through this we are confidently preparing the company for continued growth in the future.”

    In spite of what that says, Melexis is said in industry jargon to be "fabless", i.e. the only thing it makes is a profit (or at least this was true a couple of years ago). It is largely a design and marketing company.

    Other Companies owned by RD's holding company produce a lot of what Melexis sells, including X-Fab, the CEO of which is de Winter, the husband of the CEO of Melexis and the CEO of the holding company, Xtrion. (He is also the former CEO of Melexis and is still on the board).

    Melexis seems to make a very high net profit: about 20% or 25% of turnover, iirc. That was true a couple of years ago, as well.

    By the way, 2 years ago, Xtrion owned about 53% of Melexis and 59% of X-Fab.

    I was looking at a website called "Belgium's Richest" earlier today. I'm afraid business has been so bad RD is just above the relegation zone; the Duchatelet family is now listed as Belgian's 17th richest.

    No, I think it's a case of other Belgian rich investing more aggressively and overtaking the old skinflint.

    Let's just hope he needs to raise some funds quickly eh Seth? A quick sale to PVs rich investors would cheer me up no end.

    The Melexis CEO Françoise Chombar seems to know what she's doing. Could we get her on a Roland network free transfer and send Ms Meire off to Ujpest?!

    RD sold off part of the worldwide X-Fab operation not long ago; raised a coupe of hundred million dollars, iirc.

    Incidentally, X-Fab HQ is in Erfurt, Thuringia - just down the road from Jena.

    Yes. The Jena guys admitted that he first wanted to buy RotWeiss Erfurt, but could not. But they say that he wanted to invest in a club in that region as part of his commitment to the region. In fact if he did it like he does at Jena, build up the commercial side, and leave the football side to the professionals, we'd all be happy.
