Nanometrics Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2011 Financial Results

Fourth Quarter 2011 Summary

Revenues were $45.3 million, down 22% from $58.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 and down 2% from $46.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. Gross margin was 46.6%, a decline compared to 52.9% in the prior quarter and 52.7% in the year-ago period, primarily as a result of lower factory absorption due to the reduced volume of system sales and changes in product mix. GAAP net income (loss) was ($0.5) million or ($0.02) per share, compared to $7.6 million or $0.32 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $26.1 million or $1.12 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2010. The GAAP net loss in the fourth quarter of 2011 included the negative impact of approximately $1.3 million in acquisition-related costs and $2.5 million for settlement of litigation with KLA-Tencor, while the prior year period reflected the favorable impact of the release of $18.2 million in income tax asset valuation allowances. Non-GAAP net income was $2.3 million or $0.10 per share, compared to $8.3 million or $0.35 per share in the prior quarter and $8.2 million or $0.35 per share in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Revenues were a record $230.1 million, up 22% from $188.1 million in fiscal 2010. Gross margin was 53.5%, a decline compared to 54.4% in 2010, primarily due to product mix and the impact of lower factory absorption in the fourth quarter of 2011. GAAP net income was $28.7 million or $1.22 per share, compared to $55.9 million or $2.43 per share in the 2010.
