Intevac Announces First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq:IVAC) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 29, 2014.

“During the first quarter, we continued to improve our cost structure by implementing additional operating cost reductions as well as initiating plans to improve our cost variability in the future,” commented Wendell Blonigan, president and chief executive officer of Intevac. “We remain on track to reduce our cash burn in 2014 by 50% from the 2013 level, or approximately $5 million, not including cash utilized for stock repurchases under our $30 million repurchase plan.

“In our equipment business, we are gaining traction leveraging our technical capabilities and products in thin film deposition into adjacent vacuum coating applications. We received our first order for an anti-scratch coating for the touch screen mobile cover glass market. Finally, we continue to see a strong growth path for our Photonics business, driven by the current ramp in our Apache Camera program, strong backlog, and multiple programs in the pipeline.”

First Quarter 2014 Summary

The net loss was $4.5 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $8.3 million, or $0.35 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2013. The non-GAAP net loss, which excludes a $0.2 million restructuring charge and a $0.1 million charge for the change in fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration, was $4.3 million or $0.18 per share. This compares to the first quarter 2013 non-GAAP net loss of $7.5 million or $0.32 per share, which included a $0.5 million restructuring charge, a $0.2 million divestiture loss and a $0.1 million charge for the change in fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration.

Revenues were $17.0 million, including $9.0 million of Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $8.0 million. Equipment revenues consisted of one 200 Lean® system, upgrades, spares and service. Photonics revenues consisted of $3.7 million of research and development contracts and $4.3 million of product sales comprising 54% of Photonics revenues. In the first quarter of 2013, revenues were $13.0 million, including $5.4 million of Equipment revenues and Photonics revenues of $7.6 million, which included $3.5 million of product sales comprising 46% of Photonics revenues.

Equipment gross margin was 22.2%, flat compared to the first quarter of 2013, and lower compared to 38.1% in the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease from the fourth quarter was primarily due to the lower level of equipment upgrades and the impact of the lower revenue levels on factory overhead absorption. Photonics gross margin was 35.2%, compared to 30.4% in the first quarter of 2013 and 36.8% in the fourth quarter of 2013. The improvement from the first quarter of 2013 was primarily due to higher margins on our technology development programs. Consolidated gross margin was 28.3%, compared to 27.1% in the first quarter of 2013 and 37.6% in the fourth quarter of 2013.

R&D and SG&A expenses were $9.5 million, which includes approximately $0.2 million in severance costs related to our cost reduction plan, and were down from $10.3 million in the prior quarter and $12.2 million in the first quarter of 2013. The operating loss of $4.7 million included the $0.2 million restructuring charge as well as a $0.1 million charge for the change in fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration. The operating loss of $9.0 million for the first quarter of 2013 included a $0.5 million restructuring charge, a $0.2 million divestiture loss and a $0.1 million charge for the change in fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration.

Order backlog totaled $51.9 million on March 29, 2014, compared to $59.9 million on December 31, 2013 and $35.1 million on March 30, 2013. Backlog at quarter end included one Solar system, one PVD touch screen glass coating system and no 200 Lean systems, compared to one Solar system and one 200 Lean system on December 31, 2013 and one ENERGi™ Solar system and no 200 Lean systems on March 30, 2013.

The company ended the quarter with $75.0 million of cash and investments and $120.8 million in tangible book value. The company repurchased $1.1 million in stock during the first quarter as part of the $30 million stock repurchase program announced in November 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Intevac's non-GAAP results exclude the impact of the following, where applicable: (1) changes in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities associated with business combinations; (2) restructuring charges; and (3) gains or losses on sales of product lines and technology assets. A reconciliation of the GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided in the financial tables included in this release.

Management uses non-GAAP results to evaluate the company’s operating and financial performance in light of business objectives and for planning purposes. These measures are not in accordance with GAAP and may differ from non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by other companies. Intevac believes these measures enhance investors’ ability to review the company’s business from the same perspective as the company’s management and facilitate comparisons of this period’s results with prior periods. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

2The quarter ended March 30, 2013 includes the loss on sale of the Raman spectroscopy product line of $208,000. On March 29, 2013, the Company sold certain assets including tangible and intangible assets and divested of certain liabilities which comprised its Raman spectroscopy product line for proceeds of not to exceed $1.5 million of which $500,000 was paid in cash upon closing and up to $1.0 million is in the form of an earnout. Intevac did not recognize the earnout payments upon closing given the uncertainties associated with the achievement of the earnout.

Together, they represent a ver...
