Management's Comments
Commenting on the financial results, Bob Reback, president and chief executive officer, stated, "As anticipated, the semiconductor capital equipment market declined 13% in 2013. We are very pleased to report that in this down market we were able to increase software revenue year-over-year and report full year profitability. In line with our strategy, our services revenue was down year-over-year as we focused on products and enhanced our worldwide network of services partners that are able to quickly provide software engineering resources to assist our customers when necessary. Focusing on products allowed us to complete new releases for a number of our product lines during 2013. It was very gratifying that customers selected Cimetrix products for twenty new design wins during 2013. In addition, we continued to invest in R&D for new product opportunities as we completed a prototype for a new product line."

2013 Business Highlights

  • Increased stockholders' equity with a $1.3 million valuation of a deferred tax asset.
  • Achieved 20 new design wins in North America, Europe, and Asia.
  • After listening to the recommendations from our growing customer base, we developed and delivered a major new release of CIMControlFramework equipment control software. CIMControlFramework version 3.8 delivers additional functionality that empowers Cimetrix customers to complete equipment automation projects with the fastest time-to-market.
  • Released CIMPortal Plus software development kit (SDK), a new addition to our CIMPortal EDA/Interface A connectivity family. CIMPortal Plus is designed for equipment manufacturers to support the latest EDA/Interface A standards, including the recent E164 Specification for EDA Common Metadata.
  • Completed incremental releases of CIMConnect, CIM300, and CIMPortal software to enable development on new platforms and support revisions to SEMI standards.
  • Cimetrix continues to collaborate with industry leaders to investigate new products that enable both equipment companies and semiconductor manufacturers to reduce costs and increase productivity.

Outlook for 2014
Industry analysts are predicting growth in the semiconductor capital equipment market in 2014 to be between 10 and 20%. We are also seeing minor improvements in the PV and LED capital equipment markets, which were hit hard and virtually non-existent these past several years. With best-in-class product lines, we will continue to aggressively pursue new customers in the semiconductor and related industries around the world. We expect to return to year-over-year revenue growth, the scale of which depends on the extent of the industry recovery. In addition, we expect to transition our new product initiative from the prototype phase to revenue-generating pilot projects with early adopter customers.
