                   NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1.       BUSINESS ACTIVITIES AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

         Intevac, Inc. ("Intevac" or the "Company") is a supplier of static
sputtering systems used to manufacture thin-film disks for computer hard disk
drives. The Company's principal product, the MDP-250B system enables disk
manufacturers to achieve high coercivities, high signal-to-noise ratios, minimal
disk defects, durability and uniformity, all of which are necessary in the
production of high performance, high capacity disks. The Company sells its
static sputtering systems to both captive and merchant thin-film disk
manufacturers. The Company sells and markets its products directly in the United
States, and through exclusive distributors in Japan, Taiwan and Korea. The
Company supports its customers in Southeast Asia through its wholly owned
subsidiary in Singapore.

         The financial information at June 29, 1996 and for the three- and
six-month periods ended June 29, 1996 and July 1, 1995 is unaudited, but
includes all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) that
the Company considers necessary for a fair presentation of the financial
information set forth herein, in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles for interim financial information, the instructions to Form 10-Q and
Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the
information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles
for annual financial statements. For further information, refer to the
Consolidated Financial Statements and footnotes thereto included or incorporated
by reference in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year
ended December 31, 1995.

         The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally
accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and
assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and
disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial
statements and reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting
period. Actual results inevitably will differ from those estimates, and such
differences may be material to the financial statements.

         The results for the three- and six-month periods ended June 29, 1996
are not considered indicative of the results to be expected for any future
period or for the entire year.

2.       INVENTORIES

         The components of inventory consist of the following:

3.       INCOME TAXES

         The effective tax rates used for the six-month periods ending June 29,
1996 and July 1, 1995 were 37% (after excluding the $5.8 million of non-tax
deductible acquisition related in-process research & development expense) and
36% of pretax income, respectively. This rate is based on the estimated annual
tax rate complying with Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, "Accounting for
Income Taxes".

     4.   NET INCOME PER SHARE

         Net income per share is computed using the weighted average number of
shares of common stock and dilutive common equivalent shares from convertible
preferred stock (using the if-converted method) and from stock options and
warrants (using the treasury stock method). Pursuant to the Securities and
Exchange Commission Staff Accounting Bulletins, common stock and common
equivalent shares issued by the Company at prices below the assumed initial
public offering (IPO) price during the twelve-month period preceding the date of
the initial filing of the registration statement have been included in the
calculation of common equivalent shares, using the treasury stock method based
on an assumed IPO price, as if they were outstanding for all periods presented
prior to the IPO date.

5.       ACQUISITION OF SAN JOSE TECHNOLOGY CORP.

         On May 3, 1996, the Company completed the acquisition of the
outstanding stock of San Jose Technology Corp. ("SJT"), a supplier of thin-film
disk lubrication systems. The total purchase price was $3,715,000, including a
cash payment of $3,700,000 and related acquisition costs of $15,000. The
transaction was accounted for as a purchase.

         The purchase price, including related acquisition costs, has been
allocated based on an independent appraisal obtained by the Company of the
tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their
respective date of acquisition as follows (in thousands):

</TABLE>



         To determine the value of the current technology, the expected future
cash flow of each existing product was discounted, taking into account risks
related to the characteristics and application of each product, existing and
future markets, and assessment of the life cycle of each product. This analysis
resulted in a valuation of $785,000 for current technology, which is being
amortized on a straight-line basis over a two year period.

         To determine the value of the products in the development stage, the
Company considered, among other factors, the stage of development of each
project, the time and resources needed to complete each project, expected income
and associated risks. Associated risks include the inherent difficulties and
uncertainties in completing each project and thereby achieving technological
feasibility, and risks related to the viability of potential changes in future
target markets. This analysis resulted in a valuation of $1,740,000 for products
in the development stage that had not yet reached technological feasibility and
did not have alternative future uses. Therefore, in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles, the $1,740,000 of products in the development
stage was expensed in May 1996 as acquired in-process research & development.

         Other intangible assets will be amortized on a straight-line basis over
their estimated useful lives, which range from two to five years.

stop/start test equipment for computer hard disk drives and components. The
total purchase price was $8,335,000, including a cash payment of $8,320,000 and
related acquisition costs of $15,000. The transaction was accounted for as a
purchase.

         The purchase price, including related acquisition costs, has been

7.       PUBLIC OFFERING

         During the second quarter of 1996, the Company filed a registration
statement for a public offering of the Company's common stock. At June 29, 1996,
approximately $66,000 related to the public offering was included in prepaid
expenses in the accompanying balance sheet. Total costs of the public offering,
including the $66,000, are estimated at between $200,000 and $250,000. Due to
market conditions, the offering was put on hold. If the Company elects to
terminate the public offering in the third quarter of 1996, the costs would be
charged to expense during the third quarter of 1996.

TEM 2 -- MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
         FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

         This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward looking statements
that are accompanied by cautionary statements that identify important factors
that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward
looking statement as a result of certain of the risk factors set forth elsewhere
in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

OVERVIEW

         Intevac is a leading supplier of static sputtering systems used to
manufacture thin film-disks for computer hard disk drives. Sputtering is a
complex vacuum deposition process used to deposit multiple thin-film layers on a
disk. The Company has three primary sources of net revenues: sales of disk
sputtering systems and related disk manufacturing equipment; sales of system
components; and contract research and development activities. The Company's disk
sputtering systems, which generally represent the majority of the Company's
revenue, are sold to vertically integrated disk drive manufacturers and to
original equipment manufacturers that sell disk media to disk drive
manufacturers. Intevac's systems component business consists primarily of sales
of spare parts and after-sale service to purchasers of the Company's disk
sputtering systems, as well as sales of components to other manufacturers of
vacuum equipment. Contract research and development revenues have been primarily
derived from contracts with ARPA for development projects for the flat panel
industry. Revenues from the sale of FPD products have not been material.

         Through the first quarter of 1995, the Company also received revenues
from the sales of molecular beam epitaxi ("MBE") systems. The Company acquired
the MBE business from Varian in February 1991 and sold the business to a third
party in October 1993. MBE revenues in the first quarter of 1995 were derived
from the sales of used MBE equipment that had not been sold in the acquisition.
The Company does not expect any MBE revenues in the future.

         Income from discontinued operations represents results from the sales
of night vision products, primarily of night vision goggles and devices and the
sale of the night vision business to Litton Systems, Inc. in May 1995.

         In the first quarter of 1996, Intevac acquired Cathode Technology
Corporation ("CTC"), a developer of advanced sputter source technology for the
production of disks used in computer hard disk drives, for $1.1 million in cash
and $2.0 million in notes.

         On May 3, 1996, Intevac acquired San Jose Technology Corp. ("SJT"), a
supplier of thin-film disk lubrication systems, for $3.7 million in cash.

         On June 6, 1996, Intevac acquired Lotus Technologies, Inc. ("LTI"), a
supplier of contact stop/start test equipment for computer hard disk drives and
components, for $8.3 million.

         The Company's backlog was $68.2 million and $22.6 million at June 29,
1996 and July 1, 1995 respectively.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

THREE MONTHS ENDED JUNE 29, 1996 AND JULY 1, 1995

         Net revenues. Disk, flat panel and other net revenues consist primarily
of sales of the Company's disk sputtering systems and related equipment used to
manufacture thin-film disks for computer hard disk drives, and to a lesser
extent, system components and contract research and development. Net revenues
from the sales of systems are recognized upon customer acceptance. System
component sales are recognized upon product shipment, and contract research and
development is recognized in accordance with contract terms, typically as costs
are incurred. MBE net revenues consist primarily of system sales. Net revenues
increased by 82% to $20.2 million for the three

months ended June 29, 1996 from $11.1 million the three months ended July 1,
1995. The increase in net revenues was primarily due to an increase in the sales
of disk sputtering systems. To a lesser extent, revenues increased as a result
of sales of new products acquired in the acquisitions of SJT and LTI and
increased sales of system components.

         International sales increased by 115% to $7.0 million for the three
months ended June 29, 1996 from $3.3 million for the three months ended July 1,
1995. The increase in revenues from international sales was primarily due to an
increase in the sales of disk sputtering systems. International sales
constituted 35% of net revenues for the three months ended June 29, 1996 and 30%
of net revenues for the three months ended July 1, 1995.

         Gross margin. Cost of net revenues consists primarily of purchased
materials, fabrication, assembly, test, installation, international distributor
costs, warranty costs and, to a lesser extent, costs attributable to contract
research and development. Gross margin from disk, flat panel and other sales was
39.6% for the three months ended June 29, 1996 as compared to 35.9% for the
three months ended July 1, 1995. The improvement in gross margins was primarily
due to increased manufacturing efficiencies resulting from higher production
volume. The Company believes that gross margins experienced in the second
quarter of 1996 were higher than should generally be expected and are not
indicative of margins in future periods.

         Research and development. Research and development expense consists
primarily of prototype materials, salaries and related costs of employees
engaged in ongoing research, design and development activities for disk
sputtering equipment, flat panel manufacturing equipment, and research by the
Company's Advanced Technology Division. Company funded research and development
expense increased to $2.0 million for the three months ended June 29, 1996 from
$0.6 million for the three months ended July 1, 1995, representing 9.9% and
5.2%, respectively, of net revenue. The increase was primarily the result of
increased development expense in disk manufacturing products and, to a lesser
extent, increased development expense in flat panel display manufacturing
products.

         Research and development expenses do not include costs of $0.4 million
and $0.2 million in the three months ended June 29, 1996 and July 1, 1995,
respectively, reimbursed to the Company under the terms of a research and
development cost sharing agreement with the Company's Japanese flat panel
manufacturing equipment ("D-Star") development partner.

         Selling, general and administrative. Selling, general and
administrative expense consists primarily of selling, marketing, financial,
travel, management, legal and professional services. Domestic sales are made by
the Company's direct sales force whereas international sales are made by
distributors that typically provide sales, installation, warranty and ongoing
customer support. International distributor costs are included in cost of net
revenues. Selling, general and administrative expense increased by 73% to $2.0
million for the three months ended June 29, 1996 from $1.1 million for the three
months ended July 1, 1995 representing 9.7% and 10.2%, respectively, of net
revenue. The increase in selling, general and administrative expense was
primarily the result of increased expense associated with the marketing and
support of disk sputtering systems, and to a lesser extent, increased public
company costs subsequent to the Company's initial public offering in November
1995. Administrative headcount grew to 69 employees at June 29, 1996 from 38
employees at July 1, 1995.

         Acquired In-Process Research and development. The increase of $5.8
million was the result of a write-off of acquired in-process research &
development related to the acquisitions of SJT and LTI.

         Other income, net. Other income consists primarily of interest income
on the Company's short-term investments, and to a lesser extent, early payment
discounts on the purchase of inventories, goods and services. Other income
decreased by 30% to $0.2 million for the three months ended June 29, 1996 from
$0.3 million for the three months ended July 1, 1995 primarily as the result of
decreased interest income from lower cash balances.

         Provision for income taxes. Income tax expense as a percentage of
pretax income for the three months ended June 29, 1996 and July 1, 1995, was 38%
(after excluding the $5.8 million of non-tax deductible acquisition related
in-process research and development expense) and 36%, respectively. The increase
in the tax rate was in part, the result of the Company increasing its 1996
year-to-date tax rate from 35% to 37% of pretax income during the three month
period ended June 29, 1996. The Company's tax rate for these periods differs
from the applicable statutory rates primarily due to tax exempt interest income
and state income taxes.

                                      10.

SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 29, 1996 AND JULY 1, 1995

         Net revenues. Net revenues increased by 115% to $35.4 million for the
six months ended June 29, 1996 from $16.5 million the six months ended July 1,
1995. The increase in net revenues was primarily due to an increase in the sales
of disk sputtering systems and to a lesser extent as the result of new products
acquired in the acquisitions of SJT and LTI.

         There were no net revenues from the sale of MBE systems for the six
months ended June 29, 1996 as compared to net revenues of $0.7 million for the
six months ended July 1, 1995. The Company wound down the MBE business following
the exchange of substantially all of the assets related to this business with a
third party for stock in late 1993.

         International sales increased by 240% to $13.8 million for the six
months ended June 29, 1996 from $4.1 million for the six months ended July 1,
1995. The increase in revenues from international sales was primarily due to an
increase in the sales of disk sputtering systems. International sales
constituted 39% of net revenues for the six months ended June 29, 1996 and 25%
of net revenues for the six months ended July 1, 1995.

         Gross margin. Gross margin from disk, flat panel and other sales was
39.4% for the six months ended June 29, 1996 as compared to 34.3% for the six
months ended July 1, 1995. The improvement in gross margins was primarily due to
increased manufacturing efficiencies resulting from higher production volume.
The Company believes that gross margins experienced in the first six months of
1996 were higher than should generally be expected and are not indicative of
margins in future periods.

         Research and development. Company funded research and development
expense increased to $3.4 million for the six months ended June 29, 1996 from
$0.9 million for the six months ended July 1, 1995, representing 9.6% and 5.6%,
respectively, of net revenue. The increase was primarily the result of increased
development expense in disk manufacturing products and, to a lesser extent,
increased development expense in flat panel display manufacturing products.

         Research and development expenses do not include costs of $0.8 million
and $0.5 million in the six months ended June 29, 1996 and July 1, 1995,
respectively, reimbursed to the Company under the terms of a research and
development cost sharing agreement with the Company's Japanese D-Star
development partner. On February 14, 1996, this research and development cost
sharing agreement was amended to increase the development partner's total
funding commitment from $4.3 million to $5.5 million. Under the terms of the
research and development cost sharing agreement, Intevac and its development
partner each pay half of all D-Star development costs. At June 29, 1996, $0.6
million of the $5.5 million development funding committed by the Company's
development partner remained to be spent on the D-Star development project. In
addition, research and development expenses do not include expenditures in
connection with contract research and development activities since these are
charged to cost of sales.

         Selling, general and administrative. Selling, general and
administrative expense increased by 92% to $3.8 million for the six months ended
June 29, 1996 from $2.0 million for the six months ended July 1, 1995
representing 10.9% and 12.1%, respectively, of net revenue. The increase in
selling, general and administrative expense was primarily the result of
increased expense associated with the marketing and support of disk sputtering
systems, and to a lesser extent, increased public company costs subsequent to
the Company's initial public offering in November 1995. Administrative headcount
grew to 69 employees at June 29, 1996 from 38 employees at July 1, 1995.

         Acquired In-Process Research and development. The increase of $5.8
million was the result of a write-off of acquired in-process research &
development related to the acquisitions of SJT and of LTI.

         Other income, net. Other income consists primarily of interest income
on the Company's short-term investments and, to a lesser extent, early payment
discounts on the purchase of inventories, goods and services. Other income
decreased by 11% to $0.45 million for the six months ended June 29, 1996 from
$0.5 million for the six months ended July 1, 1995, primarily as the result of
decreased interest income from lower cash balances.

                                      11.

<PAGE>   12
         Discontinued operations. In March 1995, the Company adopted a formal
plan to discontinue its night vision business. The Company sold its night vision
business to Litton Systems, Inc. in May of 1995. Accordingly, the results of
operations data for the six months ended July 1, 1995 reflect the night vision
business as a discontinued operation. Net revenues included in discontinued
operations for the six months ended July 1, 1995 were $4.2 million. Included in
income from discontinued operations for the six months ended July 1, 1995 is a
net gain after taxes of approximately $1.4 million, net of a reserve of
approximately $2.6 million to provide for estimated closing, environmental
remediation and warranty costs from the sale of the night vision business. As of
June 29, 1996, the Company had completed closure of the night vision business'
Palo Alto facility and $0.8 million remained in the Company's closure reserve to
provide for any additional expenses which may be incurred.

         Provision for income taxes. Income tax expense as a percentage of
pretax income for the six months ended June 29, 1996 and July 1, 1995, was 37%
(after excluding the $5.8 million of non-tax deductible acquisition related
in-process research and development expense) and 36%, respectively. The
Company's tax rate for these periods differs from the applicable statutory rates
primarily due to tax exempt interest income and state income taxes.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

         The Company's operating activities provided cash of $1.0 million for
the six months ended June 29, 1996. The Company incurred a $1.3 million net loss
and increased working capital by $4.4 million. This was more than offset by a
$5.8 million non-cash acquisition related write-off of acquired in-process
research and development and $1.0 million of depreciation and amortization.

         The Company's investing activities used cash of $14.8 million for the
six months ended June 29, 1996. The use of cash was due to $11.5 million of
investments in LTI, SJT and CTC, the purchase of $2.3 million of fixed assets
and net purchases of $1.0 million of short-term investments.

         The Company's financing activities provided cash of $23,000 for the six
months ended June 29, 1996, due primarily to the exercise of stock options by
employees.

CERTAIN FACTORS WHICH MAY AFFECT FUTURE OPERATING RESULTS

     FLUCTUATIONS OF RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

         The Company's operating results have historically been subject to
significant quarterly and annual fluctuations. The Company derives most of its
net revenues from the sale of a small number of sputtering systems. The number
of systems accepted by customers in any particular quarter has varied from zero
to six and, as a result, the Company's net revenues and operating results for a
particular period could be materially adversely affected if an anticipated order
for even one system is not received in time to permit shipment and customer
acceptance during that accounting period. The Company's backlog at the beginning
of a quarter may not include all system orders needed to achieve the Company's
sales objectives for that quarter. Orders in backlog are subject to
cancellation, and although the Company generally requires a deposit on orders
for its systems, such deposits may not be sufficient to cover the expenses
incurred by the Company for the manufacture of the canceled systems or fixed
operating expenses associated with such systems to the date of cancellation.
From time to time, in order to meet anticipated customer demand, the Company has
manufactured disk sputtering systems in advance of the receipt of orders for
such systems. The Company expects to continue this practice in the future. In
the event that anticipated orders are not received as expected, then the Company
could be materially adversely affected as the result of higher inventory levels
and increased exposure to surplus and obsolete inventory write-offs. Orders may
be subject to delay, deferral or rescheduling by a customer. From the date the
Company receives an order, it often takes more than six months before the net
revenues from such order are recognized and even longer before final payment is
received. The relatively long manufacturing cycles of many of the Company's
products have caused and could cause shipments of such products to be delayed
from one quarter to the next, which could materially adversely affect the
Company's business, financial condition and results of operations for a
particular quarter. Announcements by the Company or its competitors of new
products and technologies could cause customers to defer purchases of the
Company's existing systems, which would have a material adverse effect on the
Company's business, financial condition and results of operations.

                                      12.

<PAGE>   13
         Installing and integrating new sputtering systems into the thin-film
disk manufacturing process requires a substantial investment by a customer.
Therefore, customers often require a significant number of product presentations
and demonstrations, as well as substantial interaction with the Company's senior
management, before making a purchasing decision. Accordingly, the Company's
systems typically have a lengthy sales cycle during which the Company may expend
substantial funds and management time and effort with no assurance that a sale
will result. Furthermore, the Company's expense levels are based, in part, on
its expectations as to future net revenues. If revenue levels are below
expectations, operating results are likely to be adversely affected. Net income,
if any, may be disproportionately affected by a reduction in net revenues
because a proportionately smaller amount of the Company's expenses varies with
its net revenues. The impact of these and other factors on the Company's sales
and operating results in any future period cannot be forecasted with certainty.
Due to all of the foregoing factors, the Company expects its quarterly operating
results to fluctuate significantly and may in certain quarters be below the
expectations of public market analysts and investors. In such event it is likely
the price of the Company's Common Stock would be materially adversely affected.

         The Company believes that its operating results will continue to
fluctuate on a quarterly and annual basis due to a variety of factors. These
factors include the cyclicality of the thin-film disk manufacturing and disk
drive industries, patterns of capital spending by customers, the timing of
significant orders, order cancellations and shipment reschedulings, market
acceptance of the Company's products, unanticipated delays in design,
engineering or production or in customer acceptance of product shipments,
changes in pricing by the Company or its competitors, the timing of product
announcements or introductions by the Company or its competitors, the mix of
systems sold, the relative proportions of sputtering systems, system components
and subassemblies, and contract research and development net revenues, the
availability and cost of components and subassemblies, changes in product
development costs, expenses associated with any acquisitions and exchange rate
fluctuations. Over the last ten quarters the Company's operating income (loss)
as a percentage of net revenues has fluctuated from approximately (32)% to 27%
of net revenues. The Company anticipates that its operating margin will continue
to fluctuate. As a result, the Company believes that period-to-period
comparisons of its results of operations are not necessarily meaningful and
should not be relied upon as indications of future performance.

     CYCLICALITY OF THE MEDIA MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY

         The Company's business depends upon capital expenditures by
manufacturers of thin-film disks, including manufacturers that are opening new
fabrication facilities, expanding or upgrading existing facilities or replacing
obsolete equipment, which in turn depend upon the current and anticipated market
demand for hard disk drives. The disk drive industry is cyclical and
historically has experienced periods of oversupply. Within the past year, most
media manufacturers have announced programs for capacity expansion. In addition,
Hyundai has announced plans to commence media manufacturing. This industry-wide
increase in capacity may lead to a period of oversupply of thin-film disks,
resulting in significantly reduced demand for thin-film disk production and for
the capital equipment used in such production, including the systems
manufactured and marketed by the Company. In recent years, particularly in very
recent periods, the disk drive industry has experienced significant growth,
which, in turn, has caused significant growth in the capital equipment industry
supplying manufacturers of thin-film disks. There can be no assurance that such
growth will continue. The Company anticipates that a significant portion of new
orders will depend upon demand from thin-film disk manufacturers building or
expanding fabrication facilities, and there can be no assurance that such demand
will exist. The Company's business, financial condition and results of
operations could be materially adversely affected by downturns or slowdowns in
the disk drive market.

         Sales of the Company's systems depend, in significant part, upon the
decision of a prospective customer to replace obsolete equipment or to increase
manufacturing capacity by upgrading or expanding existing manufacturing
facilities or constructing new manufacturing facilities, all of which typically
involve a significant capital commitment. In addition, the cyclicality of the
disk drive industry, among other factors, may cause prospective customers to
postpone decisions regarding major capital expenditures, including purchases of
the Company's systems. In the event customers delay the purchase of the
Company's systems, the Company's business, financial condition and results of
operations could be materially adversely affected.

     INTENSE COMPETITION

         The Company experiences intense competition worldwide from three
principal competitors, Ulvac Japan, Ltd. ("Ulvac"), Leybold A.G. ("Leybold") and
Anelva Corporation ("Anelva"), each of which is a large 

                                      13.

<PAGE>   14
manufacturer of complex vacuum equipment and thin-film disk manufacturing
systems and has sold a substantial number of thin-film disk sputtering machines
worldwide. Ulvac is a manufacturer of in-line systems, Leybold is a manufacturer
of static and in-line sputtering systems and Anelva is a manufacturer of static
systems, and each has substantially greater financial, technical, marketing,
manufacturing and other resources than the Company. The Company also experiences
competition from other manufacturers of in-line sputtering systems used in
thin-film disk fabrication facilities as well as the manufacturers of thin-film
disks that have developed the capability to manufacture their own sputtering
systems. There can be no assurance that the Company's competitors will not
develop enhancements to, or future generations of, competitive products that
will offer superior price or performance features or that new competitors will
not enter the Company's markets and develop such enhanced products. Furthermore,
the failure of manufacturers of thin-film disks currently using in-line machines
and manufacturers using internally developed sputtering systems to switch to
static sputtering systems in the future could adversely affect the Company's
ability to increase its sputtering system market share.

         In addition, the Company's three principal competitors are based in
foreign countries and have cost structures and system prices based on foreign
currencies. Accordingly, currency fluctuations could cause the Company's
dollar-priced products to be less competitive than its competitors' products
priced in other currencies. Currency fluctuations could also increase the
Company's cost structure relative to those of its competitors, which could make
it more difficult for the Company to maintain its competitiveness.

         Given the lengthy sales cycle and the significant investment required
to integrate a disk sputtering system into the manufacturing process, the
Company believes that once a thin-film disk manufacturer has selected a
particular supplier's disk sputtering equipment, the manufacturer generally
relies upon that equipment for the specific production line application and
frequently will continue to purchase its other disk sputtering equipment from
the same supplier. The Company expects to experience difficulty in selling to a
particular customer for a significant period of time if that customer selects a
competitor's disk sputtering equipment. Accordingly, competition for customers
in the disk sputtering equipment industry is particularly intense, and suppliers
of disk sputtering equipment may offer pricing concessions and incentives to
attract new customers, which could adversely affect the Company's business,
financial condition and results of operations. Because of these competitive
factors, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to compete
successfully in the future.

     CUSTOMER CONCENTRATION

         Historically, a significant portion of the Company's revenues in any
particular period have been attributable to sales to a limited number of
customers. The Company's largest customers change from period to period as large
thin-film disk fabrication facilities are completed and new projects are
initiated. Seagate, HMT Technology, and Matsubo accounted for 40%, 20% and 17%,
respectively, of the Company's total net revenues in 1995, and Trace Storage
Technology, Matsubo, Seagate, Varian Associates and Komag accounted for 25%,
15%, 13%, 12% and 10%, respectively, of the Company's total net revenues during
1994. Western Digital, Matsubo and Trace Storage Technology accounted for 21%,
14% and 11%, respectively, of the Company's total net revenues during 1993.

         The Company expects that sales of its products to relatively few
customers will continue to account for a high percentage of its net revenues in
the foreseeable future. For example, a significant portion of the Company's
backlog at June 29, 1996 represented orders from Seagate for a new facility
Seagate is constructing in Singapore. In the event Seagate experiences a delay
in the construction of the new facility or defers the completion of its
construction, the Company's net revenues and operating results could be
materially adversely affected. In addition, Seagate recently acquired Conner
Peripherals, Inc. ("Conner"). Conner has significant disk media manufacturing
operations, uses an internally developed in-line disk sputtering system, and has
never purchased a system from the Company. There can be no assurance that the
combined entity will not favor Conner's internally developed disk sputtering
system over the Company's system, or delay, reduce or cease purchases of the
Company's products for other reasons, or that this acquisition will not
otherwise have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial
condition and results of operations. None of the Company's customers has entered
into a long-term agreement requiring it to purchase the Company's products. As
purchases related to a particular new or expanded fabrication facility are
completed, sales to that customer may decrease sharply or cease altogether. If
completed contracts are not replaced on a timely basis by new orders from the
same or other customers, the Company's net revenues could be adversely affected.
The loss of a significant customer, any reduction in orders from any significant
customer or the cancellation of a significant order from a customer, including
reductions or cancellations due to customer departures from recent buying
patterns, financial difficulties of a customer or market, economic or

                                      14.

<PAGE>   15
competitive conditions in the disk drive industry, could materially adversely
affect the Company's business, financial condition and results of operations.

     LIMITED NUMBER OF OPPORTUNITIES

         The Company's business depends upon capital expenditures by
manufacturers of thin-film disks, of which there are a limited number worldwide.
According to TrendFOCUS, an independent market research firm, as of the end of
1995 there were 187 installed disk sputtering lines (sputtering systems and
related equipment such as plating, polishing, texturing, lubrication and test
equipment as well as related handling equipment) worldwide and only 14 companies
in the world with five or more installed disk sputtering lines. Therefore,
winning or losing an order from any particular customer could significantly
affect the Company's operating results. In addition, the Company's opportunities
to sell its systems are further limited by the fact that many of the
manufacturers of thin-film disks have adopted an in-line approach as opposed to
the Company's static approach to thin-film disk manufacturing. These
manufacturers have invested significant amounts of capital in their in-line
systems, and there may be significant resistance to change to a static approach
in the future. At times the Company has derived a significant proportion of its
net revenues from sales of its systems to manufacturers constructing new
thin-film disk fabrication facilities. The construction of new thin-film disk
fabrication facilities involves extremely large capital expenditures, resulting
in few thin-film disk fabrication facilities being constructed worldwide at any
particular time. A substantial investment is also required by disk manufacturers
to install and integrate additional thin-film disk manufacturing equipment in
connection with upgrading or expanding their existing fabrication facilities.
These costs are far in excess of the cost of purchasing the Company's system.
The magnitude of such capital expenditures has caused certain thin-film disk
manufacturers to forego purchasing significant additional thin-film disk
manufacturing equipment. Consequently, only a limited number of opportunities
for the Company to sell its systems may exist at any given time.

     RAPID TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE

         The disk drive industry in general, and the thin-film disk
manufacturing industry in particular, are characterized by rapid technological
change and evolving industry standards. As a result, the Company must continue
to enhance its existing systems and to develop and manufacture new systems with
improved capabilities. This has required and will continue to require
substantial investments by the Company in research and development to advance
its technologies. The failure to develop, manufacture and market new systems, or
to enhance existing systems, would have a material adverse effect on the
Company's business, financial condition and results of operations. In the past,
the Company has experienced delays from time to time in the introduction of, and
certain technical difficulties with, certain of its systems and enhancements. In
addition, the Company's competitors can be expected to continue to develop and
introduce new and enhanced products, any of which could cause a decline in
market demand for the Company's systems or a reduction in the Company's margins
as a result of intensified price competition.

         Changes in the manufacturing processes for thin-film disks could also
have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial condition
and results of operations. The Company anticipates continued changes in the
requirements of the disk drive industry and thin-film disk manufacturing
technologies. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to
develop, manufacture and sell systems that respond adequately to such changes.
In addition, the data storage industry is subject to constantly evolving
technological standards. There can be no assurance that future technological
innovations will not reduce demand for thin-film disks. The Company's business,
financial condition and results of operations could be materially adversely
affected by any trend toward technology that would replace thin-film disks as a
storage medium.

         The Company's success in developing and selling new and enhanced
systems depends upon a variety of factors, including accurate prediction of
future customer requirements, technology advances, cost of ownership,
introduction of new products on schedule, cost-effective manufacturing and
product performance in the field. The Company's new product decisions and
development commitments must anticipate the requirements for the continuously
evolving disk drive industry approximately two or more years in advance of
sales. Any failure to accurately predict customer requirements and to develop
new generations of products to meet those requirements would have a sustained
material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial condition and
results of operations. New product transitions could adversely affect sales of
existing systems, and product introductions could contribute to quarterly
fluctuations in operating results as orders for new products commence and orders
for 

                                      15.

<PAGE>   16
existing products decline. There can be no assurance that the Company will be
successful in selecting, developing, manufacturing and marketing new products or
enhancements of existing products.

     MANAGEMENT OF EXPANDING OPERATIONS

         The Company has recently experienced a period of rapid expansion in its
operations that has placed, and could continue to place, a significant strain on
the Company's management and other resources. The Company's ability to manage
its expanding operations effectively will require it to continue to improve its
operational, financial, and management information systems, and to train,
motivate and manage its employees. If the Company's management is unable to
manage its expanding operations effectively, the Company's results of operations
could be adversely affected.

         The Company's operating results will depend in significant part upon
its ability to retain and attract qualified management, engineering,
manufacturing, marketing, customer support and sales personnel. The Company has
recently undertaken to attempt to hire a significant number of qualified
technical and marketing personnel. Competition for such personnel is intense and
the Company has difficulties attracting such personnel, and there can be no
assurance that the Company will be successful in attracting and retaining such
personnel. The failure to attract and retain such personnel could make it
difficult to undertake or could significantly delay the Company's research and
development efforts and the expansion of its manufacturing capabilities or other
activities, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's
business, financial condition and results of operations.

     MANUFACTURING RISKS

         The Company's systems have a large number of components and are highly
complex. The Company may experience delays and technical and manufacturing
difficulties in future introductions or volume production of new systems or
enhancements. In addition, some of the systems built by the Company must be
customized to meet individual customer site or operating requirements. The
Company has limited manufacturing capacity and may be unable to complete the
development or meet the technical specifications of its new systems or
enhancements or to manufacture and ship these systems or enhancements in a
timely manner. Such an occurrence would materially adversely affect the
Company's business, financial condition and results of operations as well as its
relationships with customers. In addition, the Company may incur substantial
unanticipated costs early in a product's life cycle, such as increased cost of
materials due to expediting charges, other purchasing inefficiencies and greater
than expected installation and support costs which cannot be passed on to the
customer. Any of such events could materially adversely affect the Company's
business, financial condition and results of operations. Due to recent increases
in demand, the average time between order and shipment of the Company's systems
may increase substantially in the future. The Company's ability to quickly
increase its manufacturing capacity in response to short-term increases in
demand could be limited given the complexity of the manufacturing process, the
lengthy lead times necessary to obtain critical components and the need for
highly skilled personnel. The failure of the Company to satisfy any such
short-term increases in demand and to keep pace with customer demand would lead
to further extensions of delivery times, which could deter customers from
placing additional orders, and could adversely affect product quality, which
could have a materially adverse effect on the Company's business, financial
condition and results of operations.

         In certain instances, the Company is dependent upon a sole supplier or
a limited number of suppliers, or has qualified only a single or limited number
of suppliers, for certain complex components or sub-assemblies utilized in its
products. In addition, the Company makes extensive use of suppliers serving the
semiconductor equipment business and such suppliers may choose to give priority
to their semiconductor equipment customers that are much larger than the
Company. Any prolonged inability to obtain adequate deliveries could require the
Company to pay more for inventory, parts and other supplies, seek alternative
sources of supply, delay its ability to ship its products and damage
relationships with current and prospective customers. Any such delay or damage
could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial
condition and results of operations.

         The Company conducts substantially all of its manufacturing activities
at its leased facilities in Santa Clara, California. The Company's Santa Clara
facility is located in a seismically active area. A major catastrophe (such as
an earthquake or other natural disaster) could result in a prolonged
interruption of the Company's business.

     FLAT PANEL DISPLAY MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT

         In 1995, the Company spent approximately $2.5 million on various
programs to fund the development of equipment and processes for use in the flat
panel display ("FPD") industry, approximately 72% which was paid for by the
Company's development partners. In exchange for certain development funding, the
Company has granted to one of its development partners the exclusive rights to
manufacture and market the Company's FPD sputtering systems in Japan. The
Company has limited experience in the development, manufacture, sale and
marketing of FPD manufacturing equipment, having sold two Rapid Thermal
Processing ("RTP") systems to date and having not yet completed development of
its FPD sputtering system. There can be no assurance that the market for FPD
manufacturing equipment targeted by the Company will develop as quickly or to
the degree the Company currently anticipates, or that the Company's proposed FPD
manufacturing equipment will achieve customer acceptance or that the Company
will achieve any net revenues from the sale of its proposed FPD manufacturing
equipment. There can be no assurance the Company will receive additional
customer sponsored research and development funding in the future. The failure
to receive additional customer sponsored research and development funds could
result in the Company internally funding the development of such FPD
manufacturing equipment, and the costs of such research and development may have
a material adverse effect on the Company's results of operations. There can be
no assurance that the Company in any event will continue to fund research and
development in the FPD area.

     RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH INTERNATIONAL SALES AND OPERATIONS

         Sales to customers in countries other than the United States accounted
for 32%, 40% and 20% of revenues in 1993, 1994 and 1995, respectively. The
Company anticipates that international sales will continue to account for a
substantial portion of net revenues in the future. In addition, the Company has
orders from Seagate, a domestic customer, to deliver and install a significant
number of machines in Seagate's manufacturing facility in Singapore. In order to
effectively service customers located in Singapore and the surrounding region,
the Company has established a sales and service operation in Singapore. Sales
and operating activities outside of United States are subject to certain
inherent risks, including fluctuations in the value of the United States dollar
relative to foreign currencies, tariffs, quotas, taxes and other market
barriers, political and economic instability, restrictions on the export or
import of technology, potentially limited intellectual property protection,
difficulties in staffing and managing international operations and potentially
adverse tax consequences. There can be no assurance that any of these factors
will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial
condition or results of operations. In particular, although the Company's
international sales have been denominated in United States dollars, such sales
and expenses may not be denominated in dollars in the future, and currency
exchange fluctuations in countries where the Company does business could
materially adversely affect the Company's business, financial condition and
results of operations.

     PATENTS AND OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

         The Company currently has 23 patents issued in the United States, and
has pending patent applications in the United States and foreign countries. Of
the 23 patents, seven relate to sputtering, 11 relate to RTP, one relates to
lubrication systems and four relate to other areas not in Intevac's mainstream
business. The Company has the right to utilize certain patents under licensing
arrangements with Litton Industries, Varian Associates, Stanford University,
Lawrence Livermore Laboratories and Alum Rock Technology. There can be no
assurance that any of the Company's patent applications will be allowed or that
any of the allowed applications will be issued as patents. There can be no
assurance that any patent owned by the Company will not be invalidated, deemed
unenforceable, circumvented or challenged, that the rights granted thereunder
will provide competitive advantages to the Company or that any of the Company's
pending or future patent applications will be issued with claims of the scope
sought by the Company, if at all. Furthermore, there can be no assurance that
others will not develop similar products, duplicate the Company's products or
design around the patents owned by the Company. In addition, there can be no
assurance that foreign patent rights, intellectual property laws or the
Company's agreements will protect the Company's intellectual property rights.
Failure to protect the Company's intellectual property rights could have a
material adverse effect upon the Company's business, financial condition and
results of operations.

         There have also been substantial amounts of litigation in the
technology industry regarding intellectual property rights. The Company has from
time to time received claims that it is infringing third parties' intellectual
property rights. In August 1993, Rockwell International Corporation ("Rockwell")
sued the Federal government alleging infringement of certain patent rights with
respect to the contracts the Federal government has had with a number of
companies, including Intevac. The Federal government has notified Intevac that
it may be liable to the 

                                      17.

<PAGE>   18
Federal government in connection with contracts for certain products from the
Company's discontinued night vision business. Although the Company believes it
will have no material liability to the Federal government under these contracts,
there can be no assurance that the resolution of the claims by Rockwell with the
Federal government will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's
business, operating results and financial condition. In addition, the Company
has recently become aware that a third party has sent correspondence to a
consortium, of which the Company is a party, in a proposed government sponsored
research and development program claiming that the work to be done under this
program may infringe patents owned by this third party. The Company and its
subcontractors have reviewed the correspondence and patents and believe these
claims are without merit; however, there can be no assurance that litigation
will not result from such development program. There can be no assurance that
other third parties will not in the future claim infringement by the Company
with respect to current or future patents, trademarks, or other proprietary
rights relating to the Company's disk sputtering systems, flat panel
manufacturing equipment or other products. Any present or future claims, with or
without merit, could be time-consuming, result in costly litigation, cause
product shipment delays or require the Company to enter into royalty or
licensing agreements. Such royalty or licensing agreements, if required, may not
be available on terms acceptable to the Company, or at all. Any of the foregoing
could have a material adverse effect upon the Company's business, operating
results and financial condition.

         In addition, the Company believes that one of its competitors may be
infringing the Company's patent rights in connection with products currently
being offered by this competitor. Although the Company has not undertaken formal
legal proceedings, the Company has informed this competitor that the Company
believes its patent rights are being infringed and that the Company may
undertake litigation to protect its patent rights if necessary. If undertaken,
such litigation could be costly, time-consuming and result in legal claims being
made against the Company. This could have a material adverse effect on the
Company's business, operating results and financial condition, and, in addition,
there could be no assurance that the Company would ultimately prevail in any
such litigation.

      ACQUISITIONS

         The Company's business strategy includes acquiring technologies or
businesses that enable it to expand its current product offerings in the
thin-film disk manufacturing market. The Company has completed three
acquisitions during 1996 and expects that it may pursue additional acquisitions
in the future. Any future acquisition may result in potentially dilutive
issuance of equity securities, the incurrence of debt and contingent liabilities
and amortization expense related to intangible assets acquired, any of which
could materially adversely affect the Company's business, financial condition
and results of operations. In particular, the Company will not be able to use
the "pooling of interests" method of accounting due to a shareholder being
greater than a 50% holder of the Company's Common Stock prior to the Company's
initial public offering, in connection with any acquisition consummated prior to
November 21, 1997 and the Company will therefore be required to amortize any
intangible assets acquired in connection with any acquisition consummated during
that period.

         The Company incurred a charge to operations of $5.8 million in the
quarter ended June 29, 1996, to reflect the purchase of in-process research and
development pursuant to the two acquisitions completed in the second quarter. In
addition, the Company intends to amortize intangible assets of approximately
$8.8 million of costs relating to the two acquisitions completed in the second
quarter as well as the acquisition completed during the first quarter of 1996.
The amortization period for such costs will be over useful lives, which range
from two years to seven years. Additional, unanticipated expenses may be
incurred relating to the integration of technologies and research and
development and administrative functions. Any acquisition will involve numerous
risks, including difficulties in the assimilation of the acquired company's
employees, operations and products, uncertainties associated with operating in
new markets and working with new customers, the potential loss of the acquired
company's key employees as well as the costs associated with completing the
acquisition and integrating the acquired company.

     ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS

         The Company is subject to a variety of governmental regulations
relating to the use, storage, discharge, handling, emission, generation,
manufacture, treatment and disposal of toxic or other hazardous substances,
chemicals, materials or waste. Any failure to comply with current or future
regulations could result in substantial civil penalties or criminal fines being
imposed on the Company or its officers, directors or employees, suspension of
production, alteration of its manufacturing process or cessation of operations.
Such regulations could require the Company to acquire expensive remediation or
abatement equipment or to incur substantial expenses to comply with

                                      18.

<PAGE>   19
environmental regulations. Any failure by the Company to properly manage the
use, disposal or storage of, or adequately restrict the release of, hazardous or
toxic substances could subject the Company to significant liabilities.
