Xcerra Announces the Execution of a Non-Binding Letter of Intent to Divest Its Interface Board Business

NORWOOD, Mass., June 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xcerra Corporation (Nasdaq:XCRA), today announced that it has signed a non-binding letter of intent with Fastprint Hong Kong Co., Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Shenzhen Fastprint Circuit Tech Co., Ltd ("China Fastprint"), for the sale of Xcerra's semiconductor test interface board business based in Santa Clara, CA ("Interface Board Business").

The terms of the potential transaction include, among other things, the sale of most of the assets, certain liabilities, and the transfer of all of the employees associated with that business for a purchase price of $23 million, subject to further due diligence and negotiations between the parties. Post closing, Xcerra's integrated test cell offerings will not be impacted by the sale of the Interface Board Business because we expect to offer the same services to our customers through a preferred supplier agreement with China Fastprint.

The principle terms for the intended sale of the Interface Board Business to China Fastprint have been agreed to in a non-binding letter of intent. The potential transaction is subject to, among other things, further due diligence, the negotiation and agreement on terms of a definitive and binding purchase and sale agreement, and customary closing conditions, including applicable corporate and governmental approvals.

Pro forma and unaudited revenues for the Interface Board Business were approximately $39 million for calendar year 2014.

The Interface Board Business will continue to operate as usual and customers will see no change in the high quality services they expect from this group.
