Camtek Announces Fourth Quarter & Full Year 2013 Results

Q4 revenues of $23.3 million; 3D inkjet system started testing at a customer site

MIGDAL HAEMEK, Israel, Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Camtek Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: CAMT), today announced its financial results for the full year and quarter ended December 31, 2013.

Highlights of the Full Year 2013

  • Revenues of $85.4 million;
  • Non-GAAP operating income of $3.2 million; GAAP operating income of $1.1 million;
  • Non-GAAP net income of $2.1 million; GAAP net income of $7 thousand;
  • Positive operating cash flow of $4.7 million; Cash and equivalents of $22.5 million as of December 31, 2013.

Highlights of the Fourth Quarter 2013

  • Revenues of $23.3 million;
  • Non-GAAP operating income of $1.1 million; GAAP operating loss of $304 thousand;
  • Non-GAAP net income of $778 thousand; GAAP net income of $660 thousand;
  • Positive operating cash flow of $2.6 million;
  • 3D Inkjet System for the PCB market was installed at customer site for testing;

A corporate reorganization was implemented during the quarter due to management's decision to increase its focus on its inspection and metrology in the semiconductor market and discontinuing its R&D efforts of the Sela Xact product line. As a result, in the fourth quarter there was a one-time negative impact on GAAP net income of approximately $1.5 million due to certain charges (partially offset by items of one time) income and income related to the re-organization.  In addition, in the fourth quarter there was a positive impact on GAAP net income of $1.3 million as a result of a decrease in the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets following the evaluation of the potential for realization of the assets based on projected future earnings. These amounts were included in the non-GAAP adjustment.

Results for the three-month period and full year ended December 31, 2013 on a non-GAAP basis, exclude the following items: (i) share based compensation expenses; (ii) write off of inventory and fixed-assets primarily related to the discontinued Sela product line; (iii) the impact of reorganization and impairment charges; and (iv) realization of deferred tax assets. A reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP results appears in the tables at the end of this press release.

Rafi Amit, Camtek's Active Chairman, commented: "2013 ends a year of investment and promise. As we move into 2014, we are increasing our focus on the two key markets we operate in – that of semiconductor inspection and metrology, as well as PCB inspection and the 3D inkjet system."

"I am pleased to announce that the customer-site testing of our 3D inkjet system started and is being operated in a production environment. We expect this phase to continue for a few months, and upon satisfactory results, commercial installations will begin during the second half of the year," continued Mr. Amit.

Concluded Mr. Amit: "Looking ahead, we see strength in the semiconductor industry and we expect to see growth in our inspection and metrology business in the coming quarters, predominantly related to advanced packaging applications. In terms of guidance for the first quarter of 2014, we expect revenues of between $21-23 million, representing midpoint year-over-year growth of above 20%."

Fourth quarter 2013 Financial Results

Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $23.3 million. This is a 7% increase from prior quarter revenues of $21.7 million and a 32% increase from fourth quarter 2012 revenues of $17.6 million. The increase is mainly related to a more favorable environment in the semiconductor market.

Gross profit on a GAAP basis in the quarter totaled $6.7 million (28.7% of revenues). This is a 31% decrease compared to $9.7 million (44.6% of revenues) in the prior quarter and a 12% increase compared to $6.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 (33.8% of revenues). Cost of goods sold on a GAAP basis in the quarter included an inventory write-off primarily related to the discontinued Sela product line of $3.6 million.

Gross profit on a non-GAAP basis in the quarter totaled $10.6 million (45.6% of revenues). This is a 9% increase compared to $9.8 million (45.0% of revenues) in the prior quarter and a 41% increase compared to $7.6 million (42.9% of revenues) in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Operating loss on a GAAP basis in the quarter was $304 thousand. This is compared to an operating income of $600 thousand (2.8% of revenues) in the prior quarter and to operating loss of $5.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.  The operating loss in the fourth quarter of 2013 included various one-time expenses (partially offset by one time income) primarily related to the discontinuance of the Sela product line amounting to a net expense of $1.5 million.

Operating profit on a non-GAAP basis in the quarter was $1.1 million (4.7% of revenues). This is compared to operating income of $819 thousand (3.8% of revenues) in the prior quarter and an operating loss of $575 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Net income on a GAAP basis in the quarter totaled $660 thousand, or $0.02 per share. This is compared to a net loss of $122 thousand or $0.00 per share in the prior quarter and a net loss of $3.3 million or $0.11 per share in the fourth quarter of 2012. 

Net income on a non-GAAP basis in the quarter was $778 thousand or $0.03 per diluted share. This is compared to a net income of $545 thousand or $0.02 per share in the prior quarter and net loss of $0.9 million or $0.03 per share in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Full Year 2013 Results Summary

Revenues for 2013 were $85.4 million, an increase of 1% compared to $84.5 million, as reported in 2012.

Gross profit on a GAAP basis for 2013 was $34.4 million (40.3% of revenues) compared to gross profit of $37.1 million (43.8% of revenues) in 2012. Gross profit on a non-GAAP basis for 2013, was $38.6 million (45.2% of revenues), compared to $39.0 million (46.1% of revenues) in 2012. The decrease in gross margin on a non-GAAP basis compared to the prior year is a result of a mix in product sold.

Operating income on a GAAP basis for 2013, was $1.1 million (1.3% of revenues) compared to an operating loss of $20 thousand in 2012. Non-GAAP operating income in 2013 was $3.2 million (3.7% of revenues) compared to an operating income of $5.3 million (6.3% of revenues) in 2012. Operating expenses in 2013 were higher mainly as a result of the impact of the exchange rate between the Israeli Shekel and the US Dollar.

Net income on a GAAP basis for 2013 was $7 thousand compared to a net income of $3 thousand in 2012.  Net income on a non-GAAP basis for 2013 was $2.1 million, compared to a net income of $4.6 million in 2012.
