NVE Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Oct. 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NVE Corporation (Nasdaq:NVEC) announced today financial results for the quarter and six months ended September 30, 2014.

Total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 increased 13% to $8.27 million from $7.30 million in the prior-year quarter. The increase was due to a 12% increase in product sales and a 119% increase in contract research and development revenue. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 increased 20% to $3.88 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, compared to $3.23 million, or $0.66 per share, for the prior-year quarter.

For the first six months of fiscal 2015, total revenue increased 24% to $16.7 million from $13.5 million for the first six months of the prior year. The increase was due to a 25% increase in product sales partially offset by a 5% decrease in contract research and development revenue. Net income increased 37% to $7.91 million, or $1.63 per diluted share, for the first half of fiscal 2015 compared to $5.80 million, or $1.19 per diluted share, for the first half of fiscal 2014.

"We are pleased to report a 20% increase in net income for the quarter, driven by increased revenue and increased margins," said NVE President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel A. Baker, Ph.D.
