CyberOptics Corporation (Nasdaq: CYBE) today reported operating results for the second quarter of 2012 ended June 30.
- Consolidated sales totaled $13.0 million, up from $11.3 million in this year’s first quarter but down from $16.9 million in the second quarter of 2011, reflecting greater than anticipated weakness in the global electronics market.
- Operating income of $98,000 was up from $92,000 in the first quarter of 2012, but down from $1.8 million in last year’s second quarter.
- Net income came to $143,000 or $0.02 per diluted share in this year’s second quarter, compared to $92,000 or $0.01 per diluted share in the first quarter and $1.4 million or $0.20 per diluted share in the year-earlier period.
- Backlog at June 30, 2012 totaled $4.3 million, compared to $5.6 million at the end of this year’s first quarter.
- Cash and marketable securities increased $1.8 million to $32.3 million at June 30, 2012 from $30.5 million at December 31, 2011. Cash reserves at the end of this year’s second quarter also were up substantially from $23.9 million at June 30, 2011.
She continued: “Despite the difficult operating environment, sales of our best-in-class automated optical inspection (AOI) systems, which are based upon CyberOptics’ unique strobed inspection module technology, were up 4% on a year-over-year basis, reflecting continued market share gains in the AOI market. We were particularly encouraged by the solid market reception accorded our new off-line and integrated in-line AOI tabletop systems that are part of our tiered product strategy, which is intended to increase the size of CyberOptics’ served market. Sales of these products totaled approximately $500,000 in the second quarter of 2012. The success of our AOI products is the direct result of CyberOptics’ ongoing commitment to product development, an emphasis we plan to maintain as we continue working on next-generation products. We believe these new products will position us to capture additional market share and help fuel our future growth and profitability. In addition, we are continuing to evaluate strategic acquisition opportunities as a means for entering new markets with related technologies.”Iverson added: “We are fully consolidating our Portland-based semiconductor operations into our Minneapolis headquarters facility. We believe this move, which will result in a restructuring charge of approximately $300,000 in the third quarter, will allow us to accelerate development of our WaferSense products through more efficient access to CyberOptics’ sensor engineering talent, while further streamlining our business. This action will have no impact on our global sales and service capabilities. Sales of our WaferSense product line were up 15% sequentially and 17% year-over-year, and our consolidation initiative will enable WaferSense to remain a growing and important component of our product mix.” Iverson continued: “Given the prolonged weakness in the global economy, we believe sluggish market conditions will likely extend at least through the end of 2012. Based upon this outlook, we believe CyberOptics’ second half sales may be lower than the level posted in this year’s first six months. And since we plan to continue funding our product development initiatives at a relatively high level, maintaining profitability in 2012 may be challenging. Despite this near-term outlook, we remain confident about CyberOptics’ longer-term future, as we prepare for the next upturn of the electronics market by developing a range of important next-generation products.”
