FormFactor, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Results

(PresseBox) ( Livermore, CA, )
FormFactor, Inc. (NASDAQ: FORM) today announced its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2010, which ended on June 26, 2010. Quarterly revenues were $57.6 million, up 45.1% from $39.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2010, and up 84.6% from $31.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2009.

Net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was $33.9 million or $(0.68) per fullydiluted share, compared to a net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 of $38.2 million or $(0.77) per fullydiluted share and a net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 of $65.8 million or $(1.33) per fullydiluted share. On a Non-GAAP basis, net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was $27.5 million or $(0.55) per fullydiluted share, compared to a net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 of $29.4 million or $(0.59) per fullydiluted share and a net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 of $16.3 million or $(0.33) per fullydiluted share.

The second quarter of fiscal 2010 includes a pretax restructuring charge of $5.8 million, or $(0.12) per fullydiluted share, for severance benefits and the impairment of certain longlived assets. The restructuring charge is part of an overall cost reduction plan that includes a workforce reduction announced on June 16, 2010. Offsetting this charge is a benefit of $3.3 million, or $0.07 per fullydiluted share, for the rescission of severance arrangements previously provided to certain Livermore manufacturing personnel in Q1 2010. The rescission was also a part of the overall cost reduction plan and reflects the company's decision to discontinue plans for Korea manufacturing operations and slow its transition of certain manufacturing operations to Singapore.

Separate from these restructuring charges, the company also recorded an expense of $0.6 million, or $(0.01) per fullydiluted share, for severance agreements, including stock option modifications, with former executives.

"The increased demand for semiconductors has contributed to sequential quarterly revenue growth for our company," said Carl Everett, CEO of FormFactor. "We remain focused on improving our operating efficiency and returning to profitability. To do this, we continue to make adjustments to our company and products that will best serve our customers' needs."
