UPDATED 18:44 EST / NOVEMBER 08 2022

Shares of the computer chipmaker GlobalFoundries Inc. gained ground in regular trading today after the company reported solid third-quarter financial results that topped Wall Street’s expectations.
The contract chip manufacturer reported earnings before certain costs such as stock compensation of 67 cents per share, up by seven cents from the same quarter last year and ahead of Wall Street’s consensus estimate of 62 cents. Revenue for the period rose 22% from a year ago, to a record $2.07 billion. Wall Street had been looking for sales of $2.05 billion.

In October 2021 IQE announced a strategic partnership with GF.
This involves IQE supplying wafers to GF as follows;

“IQE plc, the compound semiconductor wafer company, has started a long-term strategic collaboration with GlobalFoundries to develop vital GaN on Si technologies for mobile and wireless infrastructure applications.
The result of this collaboration will be a GaN on Si offering at GF's Fab 9 facility in Burlington, Vermont, using wafers supplied by IQE.”

It seems that GF is working flat out.
In the past year this collaboration must have added to IQE revenues in 2022.

I’m afraid 50p is something of a barrier and has been all year. It would be a positive if IQE share price could go past and stay in the 50s for sure.

Weirdly I think there may still be a santa rally this Dec/Jan but predict a very choppy market next year which will see saw until the 22 earnings have been done and visibility for ‘23 earnings is clearer. I think the markets here and the US are ahead of themselves again.

However for once it looks like IQE should be better protected than most as we will be one of the few that are growing earnings, and the market will likely seek out such stocks. 🤞

Maybe some good news folks?

Re the patent case against Tower ( in the guise of Newport Fab LLC et Al) for patent infringement. According to the case file notes , the case was ‘terminated217; on the 4th November.

IQE plc v. Newport Fab, LLC et al
California Central District Court
Judge: Cormac J Carney
Referred: Karen E Scott
Case #: 8:22-cv-00867
Nature of Suit 830 Property Rights - Patent
Cause 35:183 Patent Infringement
Case Filed: Apr 25, 2022
Terminated: Nov 04, 2022

Further to this it ‘appears’; that the DEFENDANTS ( Tower aka Newport)have been given leave to appeal which would of course mean that IQE have won the case ( subject to appeal). Of course we don’t know what the verdict said, whether it ordered the transfer of the patents to IQE which was the main essence of the case and importantly what the costs were and whether Tower will be ordered to pay IQE legal fees. However given the authority and status of the very senior judge in charge of this case it is certainly looking very positive ✅ as an appeal would suggest that the judges have ruled Tower misappropriated the IQE IP,which means in effect IQE won the case.

With lawyers …it’s never ever over ! (the case or the fees)

Agreed Snaffleclamp

When I was investing in Imagination, I set some fun share price targets to do some daft things based upon their logo, I had a flag that I raised and lowered when the share price went up and down, commissioned a logo silver ear- ring to wear when theSP hit £3…, got my ear pierced and wore it to the AGM, at £4 ( yes it kept going up) I had a tattoo of the logo on my left shoulder and finally at £6 when I sold a lot and bought my wonderful home with the profits I selected a monument stone from a local quarry and had a local stone mason inscribe it with the logo, it sits proudly and largely in the garden and will save me ever having to buy a gravestone 😂

I am now in half a mind to have the new IQE logo tattooed on the other side to balance me up 😉 ….but only when the share price gets to a £1, what’s life if you don’t have a bit of fun.

Just rewatched the CMD and it was even better for the repeat 👏

The feedback on this board has been very positive and although I saw the start of the CEO’s presentation, I had meetings all afternoon and missed most of the session. Was there any talk about whether capital would be needed to ramp up production I.e. any potential rights issues? A few additional questions to those who saw the presentation;

- do you believe that IQE will remain within a 40 - 60 p share price cycle until revenue and profits are confirmed in any future trading statement or could they bounce to new levels on the basis of this five year plan?
- was there any discussion on new tools being ordered for Newport?
- do you think any brokers are likely to re rate IQE due to this presentation?
- was there any discussion of how the negative world economic and political situation could have a tail wind on any potential IQE recovery?
- How did Tim perform, did he impress today?
- there seems to be a feeling of some jam today and not tomorrow, was this good positive spin or do other feel it is a real possible change of fortune for IQE?
- does anyone feel that IQE could be post £1 by the end of 2023?

Historically when the Lumentum price slumps the IQE share price dives so I was a little bit concerned following their update this morning (especially as I also hold a small amount of Lite 😭)

Consequently, Lite down 14% as I write, yet IQE ...... still in the blue! Promising ....

crosswires - I know what you mean about the share price sticking in the low 40's. But so far this year, IQE has held up pretty well in a very volatile market (particularly the tech sector). Pre-Americo, this was a badly beaten up share (with justification). IQE had been loss making for the past 3 years, hadn't exceeded £178.02M sales in the past 5 years, yet even today it's capitalised at over £338M. Given that backdrop, the low 40's seem more than reasonable to me until Americo's new initiatives start to bear fruit in the form of tangible profits. Even increased sales won't be enough now to drive the share price significantly higher. Investors are no longer willing to buy the jam tomorrow story. They want hard evidence that IQE has a SUSTAINABLY profitable future. I believe that will come. But it's probably still a year or two away.

British chipmaker IQE lunges into Samsung’s home turf with Asia push

British chipmaker IQE has announced its second Asia-based partnership in a week, as it seeks to widen its presence in the tech-driven market.

IQE today inked a supply deal with an unnamed consumer electronics heavyweight in the region, just days after cutting a deal with Korean supplies producer SK Siltron for the development and commercialisation of its computer chip products in Asia.

Asia, a major developer and customer to consumer electronics, already hosts some of the world’s largest chipmakers – which are currently suffering under the tensions between the US and China.

The latest wave of the geopolitical feud has seen the US Department of Commerce haul in export restrictions which aims to limit China’s access to high-end semiconductors with military uses.

IQE will be spreading further into the likes of Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s (TSMC) home turf.

“Expansion in Asia is a key focus for IQE and we are excited to be partnering with a globally-recognised leader in advanced materials,” CEO Americo Lemos said last week.

The deal with SK Siltron will see the pair focus on developing wafers for radio frequency applications in the wireless communications market and power electronics applications.

Lemos told City A.M. last month that a British strategy on semiconductors – which is currently in the works – to rival the US’ Chips Act would allow the UK to compete with Taiwan and China.

Taiwan, an island around seven times smaller than the UK, is the world’s largest chipmaking hub.

“It would really position IQE and the UK as a world leader of compound manufacturing,” Americo Lemos said. “It would allow the UK to have a seat at the semiconductor table alongside Taiwan.”

QE plc (AIM: IQE, "IQE" or the "Group"), the leading supplier of compound semiconductor wafer products and advanced material solutions to the global semiconductor industry, is pleased to announce it has entered into a strategic collaboration agreement with SK siltron for the development and commercialisation of compound semiconductor products.

SK siltron pioneers next-generation semiconductor device innovation based on world-class technology. This agreement formalises a strategic agreement to develop business in the Asia market, leveraging SK siltron's significant substrate expertise with IQE's market-leading epitaxy capabilities.

IQE and SK siltron will focus on developing and delivering innovative epiwafers based upon Gallium Nitride (GaN) on Silicon Carbide (SiC) for radio frequency applications in the wireless communications market and GaN on Silicon (Si) for power electronics applications across a range of markets. Combined, these markets represent a multi-billion dollar opportunity for GaN devices and are forecast for strong growth in consumer, telecom and automotive applications.

Americo Lemos, Chief Executive Officer of IQE, commented:

"There are tremendous synergies between IQE's GaN pedigree and SK siltron's substrate offerings, and we will leverage these to bring innovative solutions to market. Expansion in Asia is a key focus for IQE and we are excited to be partnering with a globally-recognised leader in advanced materials."

Yongho Jang, Chief Executive Officer of SK siltron, commented:

"We are delighted that two world leaders in advanced materials are joining forces to jointly develop products for exciting growth markets related to GaN materials. I am looking forward to building considerable success with IQE and developing the relationship to cover a broad range of semiconductor materials."

My sell price comment was based on my illustration of a takeover at double the share price at the time I made that post, the share price was 33p so my comment intimated that IF someone made an offer of 66p that they could have all of mine.
This is of course hypothetical, I will sell when I think it’s right for me and I won’t be telling anyone till I am out, it might be next week it probably won’t be 😉.

I like the new appointment, she looks like a great acquisition with the right experience, a 25 year history spanning increasing levels of responsibility in IBM then GF works for me. Of course she will have known our new CEO and the fact that she like he is exiting a huge corporation to come to IQE is encouraging.I wonder how many others we will poach?
