Management Comments

Commenting on the quarterly results, Bob Reback, president and chief executive officer of Cimetrix, stated, "We are pleased to report strong year-over-year revenue growth that was better than the industry average. Particularly gratifying is the gain in market share as we captured eleven design wins for our products worldwide, which enabled us to report revenue growth better than the industry. As expected, our profitability is also growing during this up cycle, even as we increase investments in both continual improvements for higher customer satisfaction and R&D for new products."

Second Quarter 2014 Highlights

  • Continuing design win momentum. Eleven new design wins for Cimetrix factory connectivity and equipment control products worldwide. These design wins help develop the Company's long-term runtime license revenue stream once customers begin shipping the equipment.
  • Larger market for CIMControlFramework™ equipment automation software. Market feedback suggests more equipment makers are open to buying versus building equipment control software, and Cimetrix's string of design wins confirms that its flagship CIMControlFramework product is the best solution to get OEMs to market faster with a higher level of sophisticated functionality.
  • Increasing adoption of EDA/Interface A. The industry continues to adopt this SEMI connectivity standard to collect equipment data to increase productivity and reduce costs. The Company's CIMPortal™ Plus and EDAConnect products are aligned to support this demand for OEMs and semiconductor fabs. In addition, the Company announced the availability of its ECCE Plus EDA Reference Client to support the testing of EDA/Interface A connectivity.

Third Quarter 2014 Outlook

Mr. Reback concluded, "We continue to see indications from industry analysts that 2014 will be a year of solid growth. While this is not the case for all of our customers, our broad customer base and the investments we have made to support our customers bolster our position to attain continued growth. Consequently, we are able to reiterate our expectation to remain profitable on a quarterly basis while providing solid double-digit revenue growth year-over-year. We will also continue to aggressively pursue new business opportunities to position the Company for sustainable long-term growth."
