A reconciliation between GAAP operating results and non-GAAP operating results is provided following the financial statements that are part of this release and on the investor page of Nanometrics' website. Non-GAAP results exclude the impact of amortization of acquired intangible assets.



Commenting on the company's results, president and chief executive officer Dr. Timothy J. Stultz said, "Our second quarter came in largely as expected, with a broader contribution of revenues from the industry's largest spenders than we have seen at any time in our company's history. During the quarter, we continued to gain market share through new competitive wins and incremental product placements of our automated and integrated metrology solutions into memory, foundry and logic applications. Today we are faced with a pronounced third-quarter pause in spending by our largest customers on process control metrology for advanced semiconductor device nodes. From our perspective, the majority of spending currently underway is dedicated to the proliferation of process technologies to extend the current technology nodes; while new investments on sub-20nm development, pilot lines and production have largely been suspended until the fourth quarter of 2014 and into 2015. Considering, however, our customers' planned investments in advanced technology devices, next year is shaping up to be a strong year for the industry generally and Nanometrics specifically as we expect to benefit from our market share gains and the critical enabling role of our technology for 3D devices and processing technologies. We look forward to a rebound in revenues beginning in the fourth quarter of 2014 and continuing into 2015."



Second Quarter 2014 Summary



Revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were $48.0 million, down 7% from $51.6 million in the first quarter of 2014 and up 39% from $34.6 million in the second quarter of 2013. On a GAAP basis, gross margin was 47.7%, compared to 46.8% in the prior quarter and 41.9% in the year-ago period. Operating income was $0.7 million, compared to operating income of $2.0 million in the prior quarter and an operating loss of $6.2 million in the year-ago period. Net income was $0.6 million or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.6 million or $0.07 per diluted share in the prior quarter and a net loss of $4.6 million or $0.20 per share in the second quarter of 2013.



On a non-GAAP basis, which excludes amortization of acquired intangible assets, gross margin was 49.1% compared to 48.1% in the prior quarter and 43.8% in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP operating income for the second quarter was $1.5 million, compared to operating income of $2.8 million in the prior quarter and an operating loss of $5.3 million in the second quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP net income, which also adjusts for the income tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments, was $1.1 million or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.1 million or $0.09 per share in the prior quarter and a net loss of $4.0 million or $0.17 per share in the second quarter of 2013.



Business Outlook



Management expects that the current pause in industry spending will include a very significant decline in process control metrology spending by its two largest customers in the third quarter of 2014. Third-quarter revenues are expected to be in the range of $25 to $30 million, with GAAP gross margin in the range of 35% to 44% and non-GAAP gross margin in the range of 37% to 46%. Management expects third quarter operating expenses to decrease between $0.8 and $1.3 million from the second quarter, with a GAAP net loss to range from $0.23 to $0.38 per share and a non-GAAP net loss to range from $0.17 to $0.30 per share.



Conference Call Details



A conference call to discuss second quarter 2014 results will be held today at 4:30 p.m. EDT (1:30 p.m. PDT). To participate in the conference call, the dial-in numbers are (877) 374-4041 for domestic callers and (253) 237-1156 for international callers. A live and recorded webcast and supplemental financial information will be made available on the investor page of the Nanometrics website at www.nanometrics.com.



Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information



Financial results such as non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating income, net income, and net income per share, which exclude certain expenses, charges and special items, were not prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Management uses non-GAAP financial results, which exclude acquisition-related expenses such as amortization of acquired intangibles and transaction costs, asset impairments including certain excess and obsolete inventory charges related to a discontinued product line, restructuring charges, and other unusual and infrequent items to evaluate the company's ongoing performance and to enable comparison to other periods that did not include these unusual and infrequent items. The company believes the presentation of non-GAAP results is useful to investors for analyzing ongoing business trends, comparing performance to prior periods, and enhancing the investor's ability to view the company's results from management's perspective. A table presenting a reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is included at the end of this press release and is available on the investor page of the Nanometrics website at www.nanometrics.com.
