NVE Corporation Reports First Quarter Results and Announces Quarterly Dividend

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., July 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NVE Corporation (Nasdaq:NVEC) announced today financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Total revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 decreased 2% to $8.32 million from $8.45 million in the prior-year quarter. The decrease was due to a 7% decrease in product sales, partially offset by a 457% increase in contract research and development revenue. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 decreased 6% to $3.8 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, compared to $4.04 million, or $0.83 per share, for the prior-year quarter.

The company also announced a quarterly cash dividend to shareholders of $1.00 per share of common stock, payable August 31, 2015 to shareholders of record as of August 3, 2015.

"We are pleased to report solid total revenue driven by a large increase in contract research and development revenue, and solid earnings for the quarter," said NVE President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel A. Baker, Ph.D.
