Feb 16, 2012 - San Jose, Calif. (PDF Solutions, Inc.)

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 fourth fiscal quarter and year ended December 31, 2011.

Total revenues for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2011 totaled $17.6 million, up 4% from $16.9 million for the third fiscal quarter of 2011 and up 9% when compared with total revenues of $16.2 million for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2010. Gainshare performance incentives revenues totaled $3.4 million, up 13% from $3.0 million for the third fiscal quarter of 2011 and down 29% when compared to gainshare performance incentives revenues of $4.9 million for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2010.

Revenues for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 totaled $66.7 million, up 8% from $61.7 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010. Gainshare performance incentives revenues for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 totaled $15.1 million, down 19% from $18.6 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.
On a GAAP basis, net income for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2011 was $2.1 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $626,000, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, for the third fiscal quarter of 2011, and net income of $326,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2010.

Net income for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 was $1.9 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $22,000, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.

Cash and cash equivalents were $46.0 million at December 31, 2011 compared to cash and cash equivalents of $38.2 million at December 31, 2010.

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 income (loss), excluding stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired technology and other acquired intangible assets, restructuring charges, and their related income tax effects, as applicable. Using this non-GAAP measure, the non-GAAP net income for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2011 was $3.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $2.0 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the third fiscal quarter of 2011, and non-GAAP net income of $2.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted share for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2010. Also, using this non-GAAP measure, the non-GAAP net income for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 was $7.4 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $7.8 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.

As previously announced, PDF Solutions will discuss these results on a live conference call beginning at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time/5:00 p.m. Eastern Time today, February 16, 2012. The call will be simultaneously web cast on PDF Solutions' website at http://www.pdf.com/events. 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.

 Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet

(*) Includes revisions to correct previously reported amounts. As a part of the Company's remediation process to address material weaknesses in its internal control over financial reporting as reported in its Form 10-K in fiscal year 2010, the Company implemented additional internal control and review procedures. Through such procedures, during the fiscal year 2011, the Company identified errors that affected prior periods, including primarily relating to its accounting for stock compensation under its employee stock purchase plan. The effect of the errors was not material to any previously issued financial statements; however, the cumulative effect of correcting the errors in the current year would have been material to fiscal year 2011. Therefore, the Company revised its prior period financial statements. As part of this revision, the Company also reversed other previously disclosed out-of-period adjustments, which were immaterial, and recorded them instead in the periods in which the errors originated. The aggregate impact by quarter was to increase net income by $170,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010. The aggregate impact by the year was to decrease net income by $225,000 for the year ended December 31, 2011 and decrease net income by $204,000 for the year ended December 31, 2010.
