Orbotech Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year Results For 2012

ORBOTECH LTD. (NASDAQ/GSM SYMBOL: ORBK) today announced its consolidated financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $100.3 million, compared to $98.9 million in the third quarter of 2012 and $133.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $0.7 million, or $0.02 per share, compared to GAAP net loss of $45.7 million, or $1.05 per share, in the third quarter of 2012 and a GAAP net income of $2.5 million, or $0.06 per share (diluted), in the fourth quarter of 2011. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 includes a restructuring charge of $3.2 million relating to certain measures taken to realign the Company’s infrastructure with current revenue levels and business conditions, including a reduction in worldwide workforce, consolidation of certain Company facilities and other cost-cutting measures.

Commenting on the results, Asher Levy, Chief Executive Officer, said: “2012 was an extremely challenging year for the Company, primarily due to lower capital expenditures by LCD manufacturers and the deferral of capital expenditures by PCB manufacturers in response to highly uncertain global economic conditions. During the fourth quarter, we took steps to reduce our expense structure, which will better position us to benefit from the improvement we are already beginning to see in the FPD industry and from the expected growth in the PCB industry. In 2013, these measures should result in savings of approximately $10 million in operating expenses and will afford us significant operating leverage. However, they will not impact our service business nor diminish our ability to continue to develop the best solutions to meet our customers’ needs.”

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 totaled $400.7 million, compared to $565.3 million in 2011. GAAP net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $45.6 million, or $1.05 per share, compared to a GAAP net income of $47.3 million, or $1.16 per share (diluted), in 2011.
