Business Outlook

“In response to the generally soft end market demand for electronic devices, we expect customers to cautiously manage inventories through the fourth quarter of 2015,” said Kelley. “We are tightly controlling capital expenditures and working capital in line with the demand environment. Accordingly, we are reducing our estimate of full year 2015 capital expenditures from around $550 million to around $525 million, including around $150 million of spending for our new K5 facility."

Based upon currently available information, we have the following expectations for the fourth quarter 2015:

Net sales of $660 million to $710 million, down 3% to 10% from the prior quarter

Gross margin of 13% to 17%

Net loss of $4 million to net income of $12 million, or ($0.02) to $0.05 per share
