Intevac Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2015 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq:IVAC) today reported financial results for the quarter and year ended January 2, 2016.

Highlights for Fiscal 2015:

"2015 was a year of execution on our strategic growth initiatives; and we made significant progress on all fronts," commented Wendell Blonigan, president and chief executive officer of Intevac. "We won new Tier 1 customers in our growth markets for our Thin-Film Equipment business, we increased the program opportunity pipeline for Photonics, and raised revenue guidance each quarter based upon significant strengthening of upgrade business with our hard disk drive customers. We accomplished all this while demonstrating a disciplined approach to capital management and reducing R&D and SG&A expenses by 5% compared to 2014. We limited the decline in cash, restricted cash and investments, net of stock repurchases, to $3.5 million for the full year, well below our $5 million goal. As we enter 2016, we expect revenues for the year to be weighted toward the second half, as we continue to execute on our Thin-Film Equipment growth strategy. Based on our customers' current factory build-out plans, continued traction and follow-on system orders will help us achieve our 2016 objective to be cash flow positive from operations."

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2015 Summary

The net loss for the quarter was $2.5 million, or $0.12 per diluted share. This compares to a net loss of $14.4 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2014. The non-GAAP net loss was $2.4 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss $5.2 million, or $0.23 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2014.

Revenues were $16.4 million, including $8.3 million of Thin-film Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $8.1 million. Thin-film Equipment revenues consisted of upgrades, spares and service. Photonics revenues included $1.4 million of research and development contracts. In the fourth quarter of 2014, revenues were $19.1 million, including $9.1 million of Thin-film Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $10.0 million, which included $2.3 million of research and development contracts.

Thin-film Equipment gross margin was 41.8% compared to (20.1)% in the fourth quarter of 2014 and 17.8% in the third quarter of 2015. The improvement from the fourth quarter of 2014 and the third quarter of 2015 reflected a higher mix of higher-margin upgrades and improved factory absorption. Thin-film Equipment gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2014 reflected a $3.1 million reserve against certain solar implant inventory, equivalent to 34.3 percentage points of margin. Thin-film Equipment gross margin in the third quarter of 2015 reflected the lower margin on the first MATRIX PVD system for solar panels.

Photonics gross margin was 39.6% compared to 44.4% in the fourth quarter of 2014 and 35.5% in the third quarter of 2015. The decline from the fourth quarter of 2014 was due to lower margins on technology development contracts and higher factory overhead due to the modified cost structure implemented in the second quarter of 2015. The improvement from the third quarter of 2015 was primarily due to improved sensor yields, offset in part by lower margins on technology development contracts. Consolidated gross margin was 40.7%, compared to 13.6% in the fourth quarter of 2014 and 26.7% in the third quarter of 2015.

R&D and SG&A expenses were $8.9 million, compared to $8.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 and $8.8 million in the third quarter of 2015.

Order backlog totaled $51.2 million on January 2, 2016, compared to $52.8 million on October 3, 2015 and $48.4 million on January 3, 2015. Backlog at January 2, 2016 and October 3, 2015 included three solar systems and one PVD display cover glass coating system. Backlog as of January 3, 2015 included one 200 Lean system, two solar systems and one PVD display cover glass coating system.

The company ended the year with $48.4 million of total cash, restricted cash and investments and $72.9 million in tangible book value.

The company repurchased 1.5 million shares of common stock for a total of $7.6 million during the fourth quarter. As of January 2, 2016 the company has repurchased 4.8 million shares for $28.5 million out of the $30 million plan announced in November of 2013.

Fiscal Year 2015 Summary

The net loss was $9.2 million, or $0.41 per share, compared to a net loss of $27.4 million, or $1.16 per share, for fiscal 2014. The non-GAAP net loss was $9.3 million or $0.42 per share, compared to the non-GAAP net loss of $18.0 million or $0.76 per share for fiscal 2014.

Thin-film Equipment gross margin was 32.4%, compared to 0.7% in 2014. The improvement from 2014 reflected a higher level of revenue and improved factory absorption.

Photonics gross margin was 37.9% compared to 42.9% in 2014, reflecting lower contractual pricing on Apache camera shipments and higher factory overhead due to the modified cost structure implemented in the second quarter of 2015.

R&D and SG&A expenses were $35.3 million compared to $37.0 million in 2014. Total operating expenses were $35.1 million compared to $36.8 million in 2014.

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

3In 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.

 

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.
