Intevac Announces Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq: IVAC) today reported financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 27, 2014.

"We are pleased to report another record quarter for our Photonics business, both in terms of revenue and operating profit, and expect to achieve growth exceeding 30% this year as compared to 2013," commented Wendell Blonigan, president and chief executive officer of Intevac. "We also achieved significant milestones in our Thin Film Equipment business, shipping our first protective coating system for touch screen mobile cover glass and our first INTEVAC MATRIX™ PVD solar system. Both systems are installed and undergoing final factory acceptance testing at Tier 1 manufacturers with potential for significant follow-on orders."

"Our hard drive equipment business continues to be negatively impacted by excess media capacity and a slower than projected rate of increase in exabyte shipments this year. However, we are encouraged by recent improvements in industry fundamentals, with PC demand stabilizing and HDD units exceeding estimates for the third quarter."

Third Quarter 2014 Summary

The net loss for the quarter was $3.6 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.7 million, or $0.11 per share, in the third quarter of 2013. The non-GAAP net loss was $3.6 million or $0.15 per share. This compares to the third quarter 2013 non-GAAP net loss of $2.6 million or $0.11 per share.

Revenues were $14.8 million, including $3.4 million of Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $11.4 million. Equipment revenues consisted of upgrades, spares and service. Photonics revenues included $2.5 million of research and development contracts. In the third quarter of 2013, revenues were $19.1 million, including $11.8 million of Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $7.4 million, which included $3.1 million of research and development contracts.

Equipment gross margin was (9.5)% compared to 39.7% in the third quarter of 2013 and 8.3% in the second quarter of 2014. Equipment margins in the third quarter of 2014 reflected a lower revenue volume and lower factory absorption.

Photonics gross margin was 45.1% compared to 30.3% in the third quarter of 2013 and 44.7% in the second quarter of 2014. The improvement from the third quarter of 2013 was driven by higher margin product revenue and higher margins on technology development programs. Consolidated gross margin was 32.6%, compared to 36.1% in the third quarter of 2013 and 35.4% in the second quarter of 2014.

Operating expenses were $8.9 million, compared to $9.9 million in the third quarter of 2013, down primarily as a result of cost reduction activities.

Order backlog totaled $43.9 million on September 27, 2014, compared to $46.4 million on June 28, 2014 and $70.7 million on September 28, 2013. Backlog as of September 27, 2014 included one 200 Lean system, one Solar system and one PVD touch screen glass coating system. The Solar system and the PVD touch screen glass coating system are at customer sites undergoing installation and acceptance testing and are included in finished goods inventory at September 27, 2014. Backlog as of June 28, 2014 included one Solar system and one PVD touch screen glass coating system and did not include any 200 Lean systems. Backlog at September 28, 2013 included two 200 Lean systems.

The company ended the quarter with $70.7 million of cash and investments and $108.7 million in tangible book value.

The company repurchased 868,000 shares of common stock for a total of $6.0 million during the third quarter. As of September 27, 2014 the company has repurchased 1.3 million shares for $9.2 million out of the $30 million plan announced last November.

First Nine Months 2014 Summary

The net loss was $13.1 million, or $0.55 per share, compared to a net loss of $17.4 million, or $0.73 per share, for the first nine months of 2013. The non-GAAP net loss, was $12.8 million or $0.54 per share. This compares to the first nine months 2013 non-GAAP net loss of $16.5 million or $0.69 per share.

Revenues were $46.5 million, including $16.2 million of Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $30.3 million, compared to revenues of $49.1 million, including $26.3 million of Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $22.8 million, for the first nine months of 2013.

Equipment gross margin was 12.3%, compared to 27.4% in the first nine months of 2013, primarily due to the lower level of revenue from upgrades and lower factory absorption. Fiscal 2013 margins reflected a refurbishment provision for a solar evaluation system, and the lower system margin on the first solar implant ENERGi system recognized for revenue. Photonics gross margin was 42.4% compared to 30.8% in the first nine months of 2013, reflecting higher margin product revenue, improved sensor yields, and higher margins on technology development programs. Consolidated gross margin was 31.9%, compared to 29.0% in the first nine months of 2013.

Operating expenses were $28.9 million, and were down 12.5% from $33.0 million in the first nine months of 2013 primarily due to cost reduction activities, offset in part by costs associated with the proxy contest.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Intevac's non-GAAP results exclude the impact of the following, where applicable: (1) changes in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities associated with business combinations; (2) restructuring charges; and (3) gains or losses on sales of product lines and technology assets. A reconciliation of the GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided in the financial tables included in this release.

Management uses non-GAAP results to evaluate the company's operating and financial performance in light of business objectives and for planning purposes. These measures are not in accordance with GAAP and may differ from non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by other companies. Intevac believes these measures enhance investors' ability to review the company's business from the same perspective as the company's management and facilitate comparisons of this period's results with prior periods. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

3The nine months ended September 28, 2013 includes the loss on sale of the Raman spectroscopy product line of $208,000. On March 29, 2013, the Company sold certain assets including tangible and intangible assets and divested of certain liabilities which comprised its Raman spectroscopy product line for proceeds of not to exceed $1.5 million of which $500,000 was paid in cash upon closing and up to $1.0 million is in the form of an earnout. Intevac did not recognize the earnout payments upon closing given the uncertainties associated with the achievement of the earnout.

4The amount represents the estimated income tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments. The Company calculated the tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments by applying an applicable estimated jurisdictional tax rate to each specific non-GAAP item.
