Aetrium Reports First Quarter 2013 Results

ST. PAUL, Minn., May 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aetrium Incorporated (Nasdaq:ATRM) today announced results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was $1,287,000 as compared to revenue of $1,890,000 in the first quarter of 2012. Net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $792,000, or $0.07 per share, as compared with a net loss of $623,000, or $0.06 per share, in the first quarter of 2012.

"As anticipated, relatively weak business conditions in the semiconductor industry persisted in early 2013," said Joseph C. Levesque, president and CEO of Aetrium Incorporated. "IC production levels have been virtually flat for the past two years which has suppressed the demand for production-based equipment like our test handler products. When first quarter 2013 industry statistics are released, we believe they will show that IC production levels continued to be below previous peak levels. As a result, most of our customers continued to experience excess capacity on their production floors. We expect our customers will continue to closely scrutinize their capital spending until IC demand improves and production levels increase, which is generally forecasted to occur in the second half of this year. During this downturn, we have aggressively reduced our cost structure while still maintaining our core competencies so that we can respond effectively to an industry upturn when it occurs and we continue to pursue sales opportunities in niche applications and unique situations where little or no excess capacity exists."

Certain matters in this news release are forward-looking statements which are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, adverse domestic or global economic conditions, slowing growth in the demand for semiconductor devices, the volatility and cyclicality of the microelectronics industry, changes in the rates of capital expenditures by semiconductor manufacturers, progress of product development programs, unanticipated costs associated with the integration or restructuring of operations, and other risk factors set forth in the Company's SEC filings, including its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012.
