Intevac Announces First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq: IVAC) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended April 4, 2015.

"We are pleased to report financial results at the high end of guidance and continued progress toward our strategic growth objectives in the first quarter of 2015," commented Wendell Blonigan, president and chief executive officer of Intevac. "First-quarter revenues included the successful sign-off on our pilot tool for the cover panel display protective coatings market, a new application for Intevac. We also saw our hard drive customers slightly loosen their constrained capital budgets, with our non-systems hard drive equipment business coming in ahead of our expectations driven by increased upgrades activity in the quarter.

"In our Thin-film equipment growth strategy, we are very pleased to have completed the second milestone in our solar implant joint development program. This milestone was the key technology gate and we are moving to the next phase of the program. Our solar PVD tool is awaiting customer sign-off and is running in production at a leading Tier 1 solar company. Photonics sales have moderated from their peak levels but showed solid performance compared to the same period last year. We continue to drive growth strategies within our current cost structure and completed another $3 million of stock repurchases, evidence of our objective to operate our business in the best long-term interest of our stockholders."

First Quarter 2015 Summary

The net loss was $2.9 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to a net loss of $4.5 million, or $0.19 per share in the first quarter of 2014. The non-GAAP net loss was $2.8 million or $0.12 per share. This compares to the first quarter 2014 non-GAAP net loss of $4.3 million or $0.18 per share.

Revenues were $19.9 million, including $10.6 million of Thin-film Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $9.3 million. Thin-film Equipment revenues consisted of one 200 Lean® system, one PVD display cover panel coating system, upgrades, spares and service. Photonics revenues consisted of $1.8 million of research and development contracts and $7.5 million of product sales comprising 80% of Photonics revenues. In the first quarter of 2014, revenues were $17.0 million, including $9.0 million of Thin-film Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $8.0 million, which included $4.3 million of product sales and of $3.7 million of research and development contracts.

Thin-film Equipment gross margin was 28.5%, up compared to 22.2% in the first quarter of 2014, and higher compared to (20.1)% in the fourth quarter of 2014. The fourth quarter Thin-film Equipment gross margin reflected a $3.1 million reserve against certain solar implant inventory, equivalent to 34.3 percentage points of margin. Photonics gross margin was 42.1%, compared to 35.2% in the first quarter of 2014 and 44.4% in the fourth quarter of 2014. The improvement from the first quarter of 2014 was primarily due to a change in product mix to higher margin product sales. Consolidated gross margin was 34.8%, compared to 28.3% in the first quarter of 2014 and 13.6% in the fourth quarter of 2014.

R&D and SG&A expenses were $9.9 million and were up compared to 9.5 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $8.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. Lower R&D spending in the fourth quarter was due primarily to costs recovered under an NRE arrangement in Thin-film Equipment.

Order backlog totaled $39.2 million on April 4, 2015, compared to $48.4 million on January 3, 2015 and $51.9 million on March 29, 2014. Backlog at quarter end included two solar systems, compared to backlog as of January 3, 2015 which included one 200 Lean system, two solar systems and one PVD display cover panel coating system, and compared to backlog as of March 29, 2014 which included one solar system and one PVD display cover panel coating system.

The company ended the quarter with $63.3 million of total cash, restricted cash and investments and $91.1 million in tangible book value.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management uses non-GAAP results to evaluate the company's operating and financial performance in light of business objectives and for planning purposes.
