For the first quarter of fiscal 2016, Ultratech reported net sales of $45.2 million as compared to $41.9 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2015.

Arthur W. Zafiropoulo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our first quarter results demonstrate the broad applicability of our major product lines, laser spike annealing, advanced packaging, and inspection, for multiple applications. Our revenue and bookings momentum in the quarter provide a strong foundation for the remainder of fiscal 2016, particularly driven by LSA and the second wave of demand for 28nm production coming from Asian foundries.”
At April 2, 2016, Ultratech had $241.6 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. Working capital was $318.1 million and stockholders' equity was $12.85 per share based on 26,709,639 total shares outstanding as of April 2, 2016.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Ultratech prepares its financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for the United States and supplements its GAAP financial results by providing non-GAAP measures to evaluate the operating performance of the company. Ultratech’s presentation of non-GAAP net income is defined as GAAP net income excluding the impact of share-based compensation, restructuring, amortization of purchased intangible assets and non-recurring legal expenses. Management believes the presentation of this non-GAAP measure provides useful information to both management and investors by enhancing the overall understanding of Ultratech’s core operating performance and enabling the comparison of Ultratech’s results of operations to its historical results operations as well as to the results of operations of its competitors. Ultratech believes excluding share-based compensation enhances the ability of management and investors to evaluate its performance without reference to this expense and to provide an alternate measure for comparing Ultratech’s performance historically and to its competitors. Further, management believes presenting a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes restructuring, amortization of purchased intangible assets and non-recurring legal expenses provides management and investors an alternate measure to evaluate Ultratech’s performance without reference to charges that it does not believe are reflective of its core operating performance or ongoing operations. A description of the non-GAAP calculations and a reconciliation to comparable GAAP financial measures are provided in the accompanying table entitled “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income (Loss) to Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss).” Readers are reminded that non-GAAP information is merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures.
