“We reported solid results for the first quarter, which, despite a downturn in the semiconductor market, were in-line with our guidance,” commented inTEST President & CEO James Pelrin. “On a sequential basis, consolidated first quarter net revenues were down marginally, primarily attributable to semiconductor ATE weakness, while both gross margin and non-semi revenues were consistent with that reported for the previous quarter. The decline in the first quarter’s consolidated bookings primarily reflects the cyclical and seasonal softening in the semiconductor market in both the ATE submarket and front end manufacturing, where over half of the Company’s business is derived. Orders were also affected by reduced demand in some of our non-semi markets, specifically telecom optical transceivers, which we believe primarily reflects technological changes occurring in that market.”

 

Mr. Pelrin added, “In our Thermal segment, defense/aerospace and industrial customers continue to expand their capital equipment needs by purchasing a variety of thermal equipment; and we continue to advance our footprint in induction heating, developing a new materials handling application at an existing integrator. Our EMS segment acquired two new customers during the quarter, an OEM that is developing a new 5G test system and an Asia-based OSAT (Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Test).”

 

2019 Second Quarter Financial Outlook

inTEST’s guidance for the 2019 second quarter includes both GAAP and non-GAAP estimates. A reconciliation between these GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures is included below.

 

Actual results may differ materially as a result of, among other things, the factors described under “Forward-Looking Statements” below.

 

inTEST expects that net revenues for the second quarter of 2019 will be in the range of $14.0 million to $15.0 million and that on a GAAP basis, net loss per diluted share will range from $(0.02) to $(0.08). On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share is expected to be in the range of adjusted net earnings of $0.01 to an adjusted net loss of $(0.05). This outlook is based on the Company’s current views with respect to operating and market conditions and customers’ forecasts, which are subject to change.

 

Mr. Pelrin added, “Typically, demand in our non-semiconductor related business is application based, with considerable customer fluctuation which can cause variation in our results. Likewise, demand in our semiconductor business can shift abruptly, also causing significant variation in our results. We believe we have optimized our business segments such that regardless of changes in demand we can respond to the cyclicality and market corrections that are the nature of our industry. While our guidance for the second quarter reflects our reduced order intake in the first quarter, consistent with many others in the industry we expect to show improvement in each subsequent quarter.”

 

Mr. Pelrin concluded, “True to our strategy, we are expanding inTEST beyond our roots in semiconductors to be a broader-based supplier to multiple industries, and have structured the Company for both operational and financial efficiency enabling us to navigate variable market conditions. We are leading our business with the same passion for meeting customer challenges and the operational excellence that has come to define our company. We continue to excel with our capabilities to deliver precision-engineered thermal, mechanical and electronic solutions, and we believe we are well positioned to participate as the currently weak semiconductor industry rebounds.”

Non-GAAP Results

In addition to disclosing results that are determined in accordance with GAAP, we also disclose non-GAAP performance measures. These non-GAAP performance measures include adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted net earnings (loss) is derived by adding acquired intangible amortization, adjusted for the related income tax expense, to net earnings (loss) and removing any change in the fair value of our contingent consideration liability from net earnings (loss). Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share is derived by dividing adjusted net earnings (loss) by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Adjusted EBITDA is derived by adding interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and acquired intangible amortization, to net earnings (loss) and removing any change in the fair value of our contingent consideration liability from net earnings (loss). These results are provided as a complement to the results provided in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP performance measures presented to provide investors with meaningful, supplemental information regarding our baseline performance before acquired intangible amortization charges and changes in the estimate of future consideration that may be paid out related to prior acquisitions as these expenses or income items may not be indicative of our current core business or future outlook. These non-GAAP performance measures are used by management to make operational decisions, to forecast future operational results, and for comparison with our business plan, historical operating results and the operating results of our peers. A reconciliation from net earnings (loss) and net earnings (loss) per diluted share to adjusted net earnings (loss) and adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and from net earnings (loss) to adjusted EBITDA, which are discussed in this earnings release, is contained in the tables below. The non-GAAP performance measures discussed in this earnings release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. The presentation of non-GAAP measures is not meant to be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures or information provided in accordance with GAAP.
