Third Fiscal Quarter Notables:

  • Semiconductor Test Solutions Segment: net sales up 19% from Q2FY16
  • Initial orders received for flat panel display driver market
  • Five new evaluations for MT2168, our next gen Pick and Place Handler
  • Third customer begins evaluation of InCarrier solution for WLCSP

NORWOOD, Mass., June 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Xcerra Corporation (NASDAQ:XCRA), today announced financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2016.

Net sales for the quarter were $82,237,000 compared to the prior quarter’s sales of $72,334,000. GAAP net income for the quarter was $3,157,000, or $0.06 per diluted share. Excluding an impairment charge of $601,000 related to property held for sale, the income from discontinued operations of $2,189,000, tax benefit from divestiture of $1,929,000, restructuring charges of $120,000, and amortization of purchased intangible assets of $247,000, non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $7,000, or $0.00 per diluted share. 

Dave Tacelli, president and chief executive officer, commented, “We made solid progress in all aspects of our business during the quarter, especially within our Semiconductor Test Solutions segment. In addition to the expected seasonal recovery, which we see continuing into our July quarter, we received an initial order for our flat panel display driver IC solution, validating our solution for this new market opportunity.

Our next generation pick and place handler, the MT2168, is in high demand as its superior throughput, modular design and small footprint is generating significant interest in the market. Additionally we began validation with a second customer of our InCarrier handling solution for wafer level chip scale packaged (WLCSP) devices. This evaluation has proceeded quickly and is nearing completion, while an additional evaluation process has begun with a third customer. We expect to receive orders for this solution, with the first production units installed, this calendar year.”

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2016 Outlook

For the fiscal quarter ending July 31, 2016, net sales are expected to be in the range of $89 million to $93 million.  Non-GAAP net income for the quarter is expected to be in the range of $0.07 to $0.10 per share, assuming 53.5 million fully diluted shares outstanding.  The non-GAAP guidance excludes amortization of purchased intangible assets and the tax effect related to the gain on the sale of the Harbor Electronics business. 

The Company will conduct a conference call today, June 6, 2016, at 10:00 AM EDT to discuss this release.  The conference call may be accessed via telephone by dialing 877.853.5334.

Information About Non-GAAP Measures

Xcerra supplements its GAAP financial results by providing non-GAAP measures to evaluate the operating performance of the Company.  Non-GAAP net income for the quarter ended April 30, 2016 excludes the impairment charge related to property held for sale, the income from discontinued operations, the tax benefit from the divestiture, amortization of purchased intangible assets, and restructuring charges.  Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful for internal comparison to historical operating results as well as to the operating results of its competitors, and believes that this information is useful to investors for the same purposes. A reconciliation between the Company’s GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided in the attached tables.  Readers are reminded that non-GAAP information is merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures.
