Photronics Narrows First Quarter FY 2013 Revenue Guidance To The High End Of The Range In Advance Of Presentation At Stifel Nicolaus Technology Conference

Photronics, Inc. (Nasdaq:PLAB), a worldwide leader in supplying innovative imaging technology solutions for the global electronics industry, narrowed its guidance range on revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Photronics expects revenues for the first quarter ended January 27, 2013 will be in the range of $99 million to $100 million compared with previous guidance announced on December 5, 2012 of $96 million to $100 million.

"High-end semiconductor orders began to strengthen late in the quarter and flat panel display (FPD) photomask demand gained momentum as the quarter progressed," stated Constantine ("Deno") Macricostas, Photronics' chairman and chief executive officer. "The IC business was soft at the beginning of the quarter, as we anticipated, but demand for high-end masks accelerated in January."

Photronics is scheduled to present at the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Technology Conference on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 10:55 a.m. Pacific Time at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in San Francisco. A live webcast of the Fireside Chat can be accessed at
