NORWOOD, Mass., Nov. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LTX-Credence Corporation (Nasdaq:LTXC), a global provider of market focused, cost-optimized ATE solutions, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended October 31, 2012.
Net sales for the quarter were $43,188,000, compared to the prior quarter net sales of $43,462,000. Net income for the quarter was $549,000, or $0.01 per share on a GAAP basis. Excluding the impact of special items totaling $398,000, and amortization of purchased intangible assets of $396,000, non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $1,343,000, or $0.03 per share.
Dave Tacelli, chief executive officer and president, commented, "The mobility space remained particularly strong in the quarter leading to high demand for our PAx test solution. The PAx is used by certain customers to test the RF front-end devices that are designed into the most popular smartphones in the market.
"We are also very encouraged by the fast adoption rate of our new Diamondx product by several top tier IDM and fabless semiconductor companies. Diamondx has now been established as an approved test platform by some of the largest semiconductor suppliers in North America, Europe, Japan, Taiwan and China. These customers quickly recognized the significant impact the Diamondx provides in reducing their cost of test in three key areas: capital cost, throughput and operating costs. With initial Diamondx revenues recognized in the first fiscal quarter, we expect the Diamondx revenue ramp to continue throughout the fiscal year."
Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Outlook
For the fiscal quarter ending January 31, 2013, net sales are expected to be in the range of $35 million to $39 million. Non-GAAP net loss is expected to be in the range of $(0.08) to $(0.04) per share, assuming 47.5 million shares outstanding. The non-GAAP net loss guidance excludes amortization of purchased intangible assets of approximately $0.4 million.
