GENEVA, Switzerland — STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 28, 2015.

First quarter net revenues totaled $1.71 billion, gross margin was 33.2%, and net loss was $0.03 per share.

First quarter revenues were slightly better than ST’s usual seasonality decreasing 6.8% on a sequential basis, although reflecting the impact of the U.S. dollar strengthening on about 15% of our revenues that are Euro-denominated and lower sales of components for PC applications than anticipated.

On a year-over-year basis, first quarter revenues decreased 6.6% and, excluding legacy ST-Ericsson products and the one-time $15 million payment to ST from a patent settlement benefiting the Analog & MEMS (AMS) product line within the SP&A segment in the year-ago quarter, decreased 3.6%.
