Intevac Announces Second Quarter 2010 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug 02, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq:IVAC) today reported financial results for the quarter and six months ended July 3, 2010.

Highlights for the second quarter include:

"We are pleased to report strong financial results for the second quarter that exceeded our earnings per share guidance and met the high end of our revenue guidance," commented Kevin Fairbairn, president and chief executive officer of Intevac. "The company's strong operational performance during this significant ramp enabled a more than doubling of revenues over the first quarter. We shipped twelve 200 Lean(R) systems, a level we have not experienced since early 2007. The hard disk drive industry saw a return to normal seasonality in the second quarter, and the outlook for our media equipment business remains positive for the remainder of the year and into 2011.

"Also in the second quarter, we continued to make progress in expanding our served markets. We shipped our first LEAN SOLARTM deposition system, introduced NanoVistaTM, a solar cell inspection system, and introduced ContinuumTM, a high-productivity wafer handling system. Our Photonics revenue grew 13% quarter-on-quarter and 37% year-on-year, setting another record high in revenues," concluded Mr. Fairbairn.

"We recently announced the favorable resolution of our Auction Rate Securities ("ARS") arbitration," commented Jeff Andreson, Intevac's chief financial officer. "The award entered by an arbitration panel of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") required Citigroup to repurchase at par $54.8 million in Student Loan ARS. The repurchase was completed and, as a result, our third quarter results will reflect a $3.3 million temporary impairment reversal as well as the addition to our cash balance."

Second Quarter 2010 Summary

Net income was $12.3 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $4.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2009.

Revenues were $68.6 million, including $60.0 million of Equipment revenues and Intevac Photonics revenues of $8.6 million. Equipment revenues consisted of twelve 200 Lean systems, upgrades, spares and service. Intevac Photonics revenues consisted of $4.6 million of research and development contracts and a record $3.9 million of product sales or 46.0% of Photonics revenues. In the second quarter of 2009, revenues were $12.3 million, including $6.1 million of Equipment revenues and Intevac Photonics revenues of $6.3 million, which included $2.9 million of product sales.

Equipment gross margin improved to 44.9%, compared to 39.2% in the second quarter of 2009, primarily as a result of increased revenues and improved factory utilization. Intevac Photonics gross margin of 24.2% decreased compared to 34.1% in the second quarter of 2009, reflecting higher costs as we ramp to high-volume production our digital night-vision camera module to our NATO customer and lower margins on technology development programs.
