Fiscal 2012 third quarter results included a $677,000 impairment charge associated with the Company's investment in its Japanese distributor.

The company’s net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2012 was $10.7 million, or $0.27 per share, as compared to net income of $6.5 million, or $0.17 per share for the first nine months of fiscal 2011.

Balance Sheet

As of the end of the fiscal 2012 third quarter, the company had approximately $133.8  million in assets, including $51.0 million in cash, restricted cash, cash equivalents and long-term marketable securities. The company generated $28.0 million and $30.8 million of cash from operations during the third quarter and first nine months, respectively. At the end of the fiscal 2012 third quarter, the company had a current ratio of 4.1 to 1.0 and a book value of $2.70 per share and no debt.

Outlook

Based on the backlog and deferred revenue levels at the end of the third quarter and anticipated fourth quarter orders, the company expects fourth quarter fiscal 2012 revenues to be between $40.0 and $45.0 million, as compared to $50.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.* The company anticipates that fourth quarter orders will decline from the $41.8 million third quarter level.* Despite the growing demand for 32/28nm devices, we believe that global economic uncertainty is causing customers to reassess their near-term capital spending.* In addition, the scheduling of several facility construction and conversion plans is impacting the timing of capital equipment orders.*

Based upon the anticipated gross profit margin and the operating expense run rate, the company expects net income of $4.0 to $5.0 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.* The company expects to generate cash from operating activities in the fourth quarter, as we continue to manage inventory and accounts receivable levels.*
