REHOVOT, Israel, January 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Nova Measuring Instruments Ltd. (NASDAQ: NVMI) provider of leading edge stand-alone metrology and the market leader of integrated metrology solutions to the semiconductor process control market, announced today that several foundries have recently placed over $20 million in orders in aggregate for Nova's metrology solutions.

The orders include Nova's most advanced fleet of integrated and stand-alone metrology products, the latest generation of NovaMARS® modeling software and Nova's Fleet Management software solution. These solutions will support multiple process steps including both CMP and Etch. Nova expects to ship these systems over the first half of 2014.

"We are very proud with the vote of confidence we continuously receive from the market leading Foundries for our metrology solutions", said Eitan Oppenhaim, Nova's President & CEO. "These recent selections validate our strategy of increased R&D spending on advanced optical solutions in order to increase market share in this high growth market, and solidify our position as a leader in Optical CD metrology for process control. Today, we are growing our placement in the foundries beyond the CMP process into multiple steps including Etch, for both front-end and back-end applications, and in the future, we expect these wins to generate significant business opportunities for us. With these new orders and our recent market share gains in multiple front and back-end applications, we are clearly demonstrating our strength in the process control segment, which positions us at a good starting point towards 2014."

Oppenhaim continued, "In addition, we are pleased to announce that we expect our fourth quarter of 2013 results to fall in the higher range of our guidance initially issued on October 30, 2013 with our third quarter of 2013 results. We will provide additional details on our formal reporting in February 2014."
