GENEVA — STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014.

Net revenues decreased 3.0% sequentially. By region of shipment, Greater China & South Asia increased 3.2%, while the Americas, Japan & Korea, and EMEA decreased by 6.8%, 8.1%, and 8.9%, respectively, on a sequential basis. As anticipated, net revenues in the fourth quarter benefited from a one-time $13 million licensing payment.

On a year-over-year basis, net revenues decreased 9.2%, reflecting the combination of the phase-out of legacy ST-Ericsson products as well as lower DCG sales, specifically set-top box, and AMS sales on product pruning and product generation transition.
