Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq:IVAC) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.
“We are pleased with the progress made in the first quarter on our growth objectives, in addition to booking two 200 Lean systems for the hard drive industry,” commented Kevin Fairbairn, president and chief executive officer of Intevac. “In our solar business, we won a competitive selection and finalized an agreement to ship our first beta system for solar ion implant, which, if successful, could lead to production system shipments in 2013.
“As we look forward, our hard drive customers are currently in the process of completing both their merger integration and capacity planning for the remainder of the year, and we continue to see 2012 as a largely back-end loaded year for our hard drive business. In the solar industry, while the overcapacity affecting the overall industry continues to limit investment by smaller manufacturers, we believe our strategy to focus on the leading manufacturers with efficiency-enhancing solutions will lead to further shipment opportunities in 2012. In Photonics, we recently were awarded a $10 million contract by the U.S. Army to develop and supply our night vision cameras for use on the Apache helicopter, demonstrating the continued support of our sensor technology by the U.S. Military and providing yet another revenue growth driver for this business.”
