Intevac Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2014 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq:IVAC) today reported financial results for the quarter and year ended January 3, 2015.

"2014 was a year of execution against strategic initiatives: improving discipline and process in our growth strategies, refocusing on core competencies, and transitioning our Photonics business to volume system production; and we made significant progress on all fronts," commented Wendell Blonigan, president and chief executive officer of Intevac. "In our Thin Film Equipment business, we shipped our first INTEVAC MATRIX™ PVD system for the solar market, shipped our first pilot VERTEX™ coating system for mobile display cover panels, and entered into a JDP for solar implant technology, all with leading Tier 1 customers. In our Photonics business, we ramped the Apache camera program to volume production and achieved record revenues and profits, with sales growth of 32% over 2013.

"We accomplished all this while demonstrating a disciplined approach to capital management, reducing R&D and SG&A expenses by 14% compared to 2013, and limiting the decline in cash, restricted cash and investments to less than $3 million for the full year, net of $8.3 million deployed for stock repurchases. As we enter 2015, our opportunities to offset the ongoing weak environment for hard drive media capacity systems lie in the continued execution of our Thin Film Equipment growth strategy, and our customers' success in driving adoption of technologies that utilize our equipment. 2015 presents us with significant opportunities and challenges; we will continue to drive our growth initiatives with discipline, a clear focus on maintaining a strong balance sheet, and the prudent deployment of capital."

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2014 Summary

The net loss for the quarter was $14.4 million, or $0.62 per diluted share. This compares to a net income of $1.7 million, or $0.07 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2013. The non-GAAP net loss, which primarily excludes the valuation allowance established against deferred tax assets, was $5.0 million, or $0.22 per share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss $2.0 million or $0.08 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2013.

Revenues were $19.1 million, including $9.1 million of Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $10.0 million. Equipment revenues consisted of one 200 Lean system, upgrades, spares and service. Photonics revenues included $2.3 million of research and development contracts. In the fourth quarter of 2013, revenues were $20.6 million, including $12.8 million of Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $7.7 million, which included $3.5 million of research and development contracts.

Equipment gross margin was (20.1)% compared to 38.1% in the fourth quarter of 2013. The decline in Equipment gross margin reflects a $3.1 million reserve against certain solar implant inventory, equivalent to 34.3 percentage points of margin, as well as the lower level of equipment upgrades. Photonics gross margin was 44.4% compared to 36.8% in the fourth quarter of 2013. The improvement from the fourth quarter of 2013 was driven by higher margin product revenue and higher margins on technology development programs. Consolidated gross margin was 13.6%, compared to 37.6% in the fourth quarter of 2013.

R&D and SG&A expenses were $8.2 million, down 20.0% compared to $10.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Total operating expenses were $7.9 million compared to $6.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Total operating expenses included a $0.3 million and a $3.7 million credit, respectively for the change in fair value of contingent consideration obligations associated with the Solar Implant Technology (SIT) acquisition in 2010.

Order backlog totaled $48.4 million on January 3, 2015, compared to $43.9 million on September 27, 2014 and $59.9 million on December 31, 2013. Backlog as of January 3, 2015 includes one 200 Lean system, two Solar systems and one PVD display cover panel coating system as compared to one 200 Lean system, one Solar system and one PVD display cover panel coating system on September 27, 2014 and one 200 Lean system and one Solar system on December 31, 2013.

The company ended the year with $70.4 million of total cash, restricted cash and investments and $94.7 million in tangible book value.

The company repurchased 122,000 shares of common stock for a total of $826,000 during the fourth quarter. As of January 3, 2015 the company has repurchased 1.4 million shares for $10.0 million out of the $30 million plan announced in November of 2013.

Fiscal Year 2014 Summary

The net loss was $27.4 million, or $1.16 per share, compared to a net loss of $15.7 million, or $0.66 per share, for fiscal 2013. The non-GAAP net loss was $17.8 million or $0.75 per share, compared to the non-GAAP net loss of $18.5 million, or $0.78 per share for fiscal 2013.

Revenues were $65.6 million, including $25.3 million of Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $40.3 million, compared to revenues of $69.6 million, including $39.1 million of Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $30.5 million for 2013.

Equipment gross margin was 0.7%, compared to 31.0% in 2013. The decline in Equipment gross margin reflects a $3.1 million reserve against certain solar implant inventory, equivalent to 12.3 percentage points of margin, as well as lower factory absorption and a lower level of equipment upgrades. Photonics gross margin was 42.9% compared to 32.3% in 2013, reflecting higher margin product revenue, improved sensor yields, and higher margins on technology development programs. Consolidated gross margin was 26.6%, compared to 31.6% in 2013.

R&D and SG&A expenses were $37.0 million compared to $43.3 million in 2013. Total operating expenses were $36.8 million compared to $39.6 million in 2013.

The company repurchased 1.2 million shares of common stock for a total of $8.3 million during fiscal 2014.

3The year ended December 31, 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.

4In accordance with ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes, the company determined based upon an evaluation of all available objectively verifiable evidence, including but not limited to the company's Singapore operations falling into a cumulative four year loss, that a non-cash valuation allowance should be established against its Singapore deferred tax assets which are comprised of accumulated and unused Singapore net operating losses and other temporary book-tax differences. The establishment of a non-cash valuation allowance on the company's Singapore deferred tax assets does not have any impact on its cash, nor does such an allowance preclude the company from utilizing its tax losses or other deferred tax assets in future periods.

5The 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.
