NVE Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results and Announces Quarterly Dividend

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Oct. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NVE Corporation (Nasdaq:NVEC) announced today financial results for the quarter and six months ended September 30, 2015.

Total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 decreased 12% to $7.28 million from $8.27 million in the prior-year quarter. The decrease was due to a 21% decrease in product sales, partially offset by a 449% increase in contract research and development revenue. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 decreased 15% to $3.31 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, compared to $3.88 million, or $0.80 per share, for the prior-year quarter.

For the first six months of fiscal 2016, total revenue decreased 7% to $15.6 million from $16.7 million for the first six months of the prior year. The decrease was due to a 14% decrease in product sales, partially offset by a 452% increase in contract research and development revenue. Net income decreased 10% to $7.11 million, or $1.46 per diluted share, for the first half of fiscal 2016 compared to $7.91 million, or $1.63 per share, for the first half of fiscal 2015.

The company also announced a quarterly cash dividend to shareholders of $1.00 per share of common stock, payable November 30, 2015 to shareholders of record as of November 2, 2015.

"We are pleased to report solid results for the quarter despite decreased product sales," said NVE President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel A. Baker, Ph.D.
