PDF Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: PDFS) the leading provider of yield improvement technologies and services for the integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing process life cycle, today announced financial results for its first fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2010.
Total revenues for the first fiscal quarter of 2010 totaled $15.3 million, up 3% from $14.8 million for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2009 and up 50% when compared with total revenues of $10.2 million for the first fiscal quarter of 2009. Gainshare performance incentives revenues for the first fiscal quarter of 2010 totaled $4.8 million, down 14% from $5.6 million for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2009 and up 102% when compared to gainshare performance incentives revenues of $2.4 million for the first fiscal quarter of 2009.
Net loss for the first fiscal quarter of 2010 was $296,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $701,000, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2009, and net loss of $7.3 million, or $0.28 per basic and diluted share, for the first fiscal quarter of 2009.
In addition to using GAAP results in evaluating PDF Solutions’ business, PDF Solutions’ management also believes it is useful to measure results using a non-GAAP measure of net loss, excluding stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired technology and intangible assets, restructuring charges, and their related income tax effects, as applicable. Using this non-GAAP measure, the non-GAAP net income for the first fiscal quarter of 2010 totaled $1.7 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $1.4 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2009, and a non-GAAP net loss of $5.1 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the first fiscal quarter of 2009.
As previously announced, PDF Solutions will discuss these results on a live conference call beginning at 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time/6:00 p.m. Eastern Time today. The call will be simultaneously web cast on PDF Solutions’ website at http://ir.pdf.com/events.cfm. A replay of the web cast will be available at the same website address beginning approximately two hours after completion of the live call. A copy of this press release, including the disclosure and reconciliation of certain non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP measures, which non-GAAP measures may be used periodically by PDF Solutions’ management when discussing financial results with investors and analysts, will also be available on PDF Solutions’ website at http://www.pdf.com/press-releases following the date of this release.
Information Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to providing results that are determined in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America (GAAP), PDF Solutions also provides certain non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the effects of stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired technology and intangible assets, restructuring charges, and their related income tax effects, as applicable. PDF Solutions’ management believes that the presentation of these measures provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding PDF’s operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures are used by management internally to measure the company’s profitability and performance. PDF Solutions’ management believes that excluding the effects of stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired technology and intangible assets, restructuring charges, and their related income tax effects, as applicable, provides a useful supplemental measure of the company’s ongoing operations in light of the fact that none of these categories of expense has a current effect on the future uses of cash (with the exception of restructuring charges) nor do they have use with regards to the generation of current or future revenues. These non-GAAP results should not be considered an alternative to, or a substitute for, GAAP financial information, and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In particular, these non-GAAP financial measures are not a substitute for GAAP measures of income or loss as a measure of performance, or to cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities as a measure of liquidity. Since management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to measure profitability and performance, PDF Solutions has included these non-GAAP measures to give investors an opportunity to see the company’s financial results as viewed by management. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures is provided at the end of the company’s financial statements presented below.
