Management Comments

"We posted solid results for the quarter with strong net income at the high end of our guidance, delivering on an efficient operating model that maximizes our ongoing investments and guarantees our future growth. In fact, our net income for the first six months of 2014 exceeded our net income for the entire year of 2013", commented Eitan Oppenhaim, President and CEO of Nova. "During the quarter, we continued to strengthen our position in the market segments we are serving, despite the challenging conditions that our customers are facing. We are well positioned to capitalize on their expansions as they move to the next technology nodes."

"The use of Optical Metrology is expanding rapidly as the semiconductor industry continues its technology transition to advanced 3D structures such as V-NAND and FinFET, further broadening the opportunity available to us. We are currently being evaluated in multiple projects with our broad portfolio of products, including our next generation Optical CD tools.  We expect these initiatives, along with new technology directions that we are pursuing, to have a substantial impact on our future performance."
