Fourth Fiscal Quarter Highlights:

  • Quarterly revenues grew 18% over the previous quarter
  • Semiconductor testers, handlers and interface products driving growth
  • Achieved target business model in the fourth quarter
  • Strong business momentum continues into Q1FY15

NORWOOD, Mass., Sept. 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xcerra Corporation (Nasdaq:XCRA), today announced financial results for its fourth fiscal quarter ended July 31, 2014.

Net sales for the quarter were $124,327,000, compared to the prior quarter net sales of $105,424,000. GAAP net income for the quarter was $13,514,000, or $0.27 per diluted share. Excluding restructuring, acquisition and integration expenses, and purchase accounting adjustments totaling ($1,918,000), and amortization of purchased intangible assets of $849,000, non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $12,445,000, or $0.25 per diluted share.

For the twelve-month period ended July 31, 2014, sales were $330,874,000. GAAP net income was $833,000, or $0.02 per diluted share. Excluding the net impact of restructuring, acquisition and integration expenses, and purchase accounting adjustments totaling $2,188,000, and amortization of purchased intangible assets of $2,006,000, non-GAAP net income for the year was $5,027,000, or $0.10 per diluted share.

Dave Tacelli, chief executive officer and president, commented, "The Company delivered strong financial results in the fourth quarter. Sales came in above our expectations which led to higher than expected gross margin, EBITDA and net income. Our business model is now delivering the level of financial performance we outlined when we first announced the acquisition of Multitest and ECT.

We have seen an increase in cross selling opportunities now that we offer customers all of the key components of the semiconductor test cell and this is leading to market share gains. We also expect to ship our first total test cell solution for 77GHz automotive radar applications this fall. These devices are used in collision avoidance systems and are expected to ramp in high volume next calendar year. We are the only provider of a complete production solution for these very high frequency devices delivering a compelling combination of test cell efficiency and accelerated time to high volume production.

The acquired businesses are leading to expanded selling opportunities, enhanced bottom line performance and new product developments. As an example, our bare board PCB test systems continue to gain share as our flying probe technology wins new business driven by changes in PCB technology. Our overall financial performance is expected to remain strong for our first fiscal quarter with semiconductor test solutions continuing as the primary business driver."

First Quarter Fiscal 2015 Outlook

For the fiscal quarter ending October 31, 2014 net sales are expected to be in the range of $124 million to $128 million. Non-GAAP net income is expected to be in the range of $0.23 to $0.27 per share, assuming 49.5 million fully diluted shares outstanding. The non-GAAP net income guidance excludes amortization of inventory step up for purchase accounting of $1,493,000 and amortization of purchased intangible assets of approximately $563,000.
