Intevac Announces First Quarter 2016 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq: IVAC) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended April 2, 2016.

“We are pleased to report financial results exceeding our expectations for the first quarter of 2016, primarily due to the successful sign-off and rapid customer acceptance achieved for our second VERTEX™ system shipped to a leading display cover panel customer,” commented Wendell Blonigan, president and chief executive officer of Intevac. “The rapid conversion of this tool from purchase order to revenue recognition demonstrates both the production-worthiness of our system and our customer’s desire to quickly move into production. We continue to be on track to deliver our second MATRIX™ PVD system and our first MATRIX Implant system mid-year, for advanced solar cell manufacturing, demonstrating continued traction in each of our Thin-film Equipment growth initiatives.

“In the first quarter, our Photonics business continued to make excellent progress developing the next-generation digital night vision solutions for the military, including delivery of our high-resolution ISIE 4000 goggle to U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR). We also completed final engineering on our ground force digital monocular goggle, and delivered the technology demonstrator to the U.S. Army in April.”

First Quarter 2016 Summary

The net loss was $6.3 million, or $0.31 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.9 million, or $0.12 per share in the first quarter of 2015. The non-GAAP net loss was $6.3 million or $0.31 per share. This compares to the first quarter 2015 non-GAAP net loss of $2.8 million or $0.12 per share.

Revenues were $13.7 million, including $5.6 million of Thin-film Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $8.1 million. Thin-film Equipment revenues consisted of one VERTEX coating system for Display Cover Panels, upgrades, spares and service. Photonics revenues consisted of $7.7 million of product sales and $0.4 million of research and development contracts. In the first quarter of 2015, revenues were $19.9 million, including $10.6 million of Thin-film Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $9.3 million, which included $7.5 million of product sales and $1.8 million of research and development contracts.

Thin-film Equipment gross margin was 9.0%, compared to 28.5% in the first quarter of 2015, and compared to 41.8% in the fourth quarter of 2015. The decline from the first quarter of 2015 and from the fourth quarter of 2015 was primarily due to lower revenue levels, including a lower level of higher margin upgrades, and lower factory absorption. Photonics gross margin was 41.5%, compared to 42.1% in the first quarter of 2015 and 39.6% in the fourth quarter of 2015. The decline from the first quarter of 2015 was due to higher factory overhead, due to the modified cost structure implemented in the second quarter of 2015, offset by favorable mix of product revenue versus lower margin contract research and development revenue. The improvement from the fourth quarter of 2015 was primarily due to favorable product mix. Consolidated gross margin was 28.2%, compared to 34.8% in the first quarter of 2015 and 40.7% in the fourth quarter of 2015.

R&D and SG&A expenses were $10.2 million and were up compared to $9.9 million in the first quarter of 2015 and $8.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Order backlog totaled $44.7 million on April 2, 2016, compared to $51.2 million on January 2, 2016 and $39.2 million on April 4, 2015. Backlog at quarter end included three solar systems, compared to backlog as of January 2, 2016 which included three solar systems and one PVD display cover glass coating system, and compared to backlog as of April 4, 2015 which included two solar systems.

The Company ended the quarter with $45.3 million of total cash, restricted cash and investments and $68.9 million in tangible book value.

The Company did not repurchase any shares of common stock during the first quarter. As of April 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.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Intevac's non-GAAP results exclude the impact of the following, where applicable: (1) restructuring charges; and (2) changes in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities associated with business combinations. 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.
