FORMFACTOR, INC. REPORTS 2019 FIRST QUARTER RESULTS
Company Delivers Results at the Top End of Outlook, Expects Modest Increase in Q2 Revenue

LIVERMORE, Calif. — May 1, 2019 —FormFactor, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORM) today announced its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 ended March 30, 2019. Quarterly revenues were $132.2 million, down 6.2% from $140.9 million reported in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, and up 11.8% from $118.3 million reported in the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

Performance driven by relatively steady overall demand and good execution
Gross margins benefited from strong product mix in engineering systems segment
Diversified opportunity set providing more stable overall revenue stream

“FormFactor again delivered solid financial performance in the first quarter of 2019, with revenue and non-GAAP earnings-per-share at the high end of the outlook we provided three months ago,” said Mike Slessor, CEO of FormFactor, Inc. “This performance was driven by a combination of steady overall demand and good execution, augmented by particularly strong mix-related gross margins in our engineering systems segment.”

First Quarter Highlights

On a GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was $5.5 million, or $0.07 per fully-diluted share, compared to net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 of $85.1 million, or $1.13 per fully-diluted share, and net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 of $2.1 million, or $0.03 per fully-diluted share. We reported first quarter gross margin of 39.7%, compared with 39.8% in the fourth quarter of 2018, and 38.2% in the first quarter of 2018. GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 includes a valuation allowance release of $75.8 million.
 
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was $15.2 million, or $0.20 per fully-diluted share, compared to net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 of $23.4 million, or $0.31 per fully-diluted share, and net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 of $12.7 million, or $0.17 per fully-diluted share. We reported first quarter 2019 non-GAAP gross margin of 44.1%, compared with 44.1% in the fourth quarter of 2018, and 43.3% in the first quarter of 2018.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP net income and net income per fully-diluted share, and GAAP to non-GAAP gross margin, is provided in the schedules included below.

Free cash flow for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was $14.9 million, compared to free cash flow for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 of $15.8 million, and free cash flow for the first quarter of 2018 of $6.3 million. A reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow is provided in the schedules included below.

About our Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share, non-GAAP gross margin, and free cash flow provides supplemental information that is important to understanding financial and business trends and other factors relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share, and non-GAAP gross margin are among the primary indicators used by management as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods, and by management and our board of directors to determine whether our operating performance has met certain targets and thresholds. Management uses non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share, and non-GAAP gross margin when evaluating operating performance because it believes that the exclusion of the items indicated herein, for which the amounts or timing may vary significantly depending upon our activities and other factors, facilitates comparability of our operating performance from period to period. We use free cash flow to conduct and evaluate our business as an additional way of viewing our liquidity that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our cash flows. Many investors also prefer to track free cash flow, as opposed to only GAAP earnings. Free cash flow has limitations due to the fact that it does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures, and therefore it is important to view free cash flow as a complement to our entire consolidated statements of cash flows. We have chosen to provide this non-GAAP information to investors so they can analyze our operating results closer to the way that management does, and use this information in their assessment of our business and the valuation of our company. We compute non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP fully-diluted earnings per share, and non-GAAP gross margin, by adjusting GAAP net income, GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share, and GAAP gross margin to remove the impact of certain items and the tax effect, if applicable, of those adjustments. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, net income, earnings per fully-diluted share, or gross margin prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results. We may expect to continue to incur expenses of a nature similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share, and non-GAAP gross margin should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. For more information on the non-GAAP adjustments, please see the table captioned “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income to Non-GAAP Net Income,” "Reconciliation of GAAP Gross Margin to Non-GAAP Gross Margin," and “Reconciliation of Cash Provided By Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow” included in this press release.
