  • Strategic investment made in supporting core business growth
  • InCarrier WLCSP solution completes proof of concept phase
  • 8 th consecutive quarter of positive EBITDA


NORWOOD, Mass., Feb. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xcerra Corporation (NASDAQ:XCRA), today announced financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2016. 

Net sales for the quarter were $72,334,000 compared to the prior quarter’s net sales of $78,401,000.  GAAP net income for the quarter was $4,436,000 or $0.08 per diluted share.  Excluding the net impact from discontinued operations of ($8,363,000), restructuring totaling $252,000, and amortization of purchased intangible assets of $296,000, non-GAAP net loss for the quarter was ($3,379,000), or ($0.06) per diluted share.  

Dave Tacelli, president and chief executive officer, commented, “The Company continues to deliver financial results ahead of our business model and has generated positive EBITDA for the 8th consecutive quarter.

"One of the key technical milestones in the quarter was the completion of the proof of concept phase of our solution for handling wafer level chip scale packaged devices (WLCSP). Using our InCarrier solution a customer has successfully tested multiple wafers. We have additional customers going through the validation process with their own products over the next few months. We expect first revenues from this solution in FY17.

"We see recovery of our Semiconductor Test Solutions (STS) business in the April quarter while in the near term the Electronics Manufacturing Solutions (EMS) business environment remains soft. To support the demand for Diamondx, we are investing capital in the current quarter to assist key strategic customers to expand their installed base of equipment. This investment represents a value of approximately $8M in revenue, and we expect these investments to convert to revenue in calendar 2017.”

Third Quarter Fiscal 2016 Outlook

For the fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2016, net sales are expected to be in the range of $80 million to $83 million.  Non-GAAP net income (loss) for the quarter is expected to be in the range of ($0.02) to $0.01 per share, assuming 53.5 million shares outstanding.  The non-GAAP guidance excludes amortization of purchased intangible assets and the tax effect related to the gain on the sale of the Harbor Electronics business.

Information About Non-GAAP Measures

Xcerra supplements its GAAP financial results by providing non-GAAP measures to evaluate the operating performance of the Company.  Non-GAAP net loss for the quarter ended January 31, 2016 excludes the amortization of purchased intangible assets, restructuring charges, and net gain from discontinued operations.  Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful for internal comparison to historical operating results as well as to the operating results of its competitors, and believes that this information is useful to investors for the same purposes.  A reconciliation between the Company’s GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided in the attached tables.  Readers are reminded that non-GAAP information is merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures.
