LogicVision Reports First Quarter 2006 Financial Results

Revenues at High End of Guidance and a Record Backlog

SAN JOSE, Calif., Apr. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LogicVision, Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN), a leading provider of yield learning capabilities that enable its customers to quickly and effectively improve product yields, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2006.

First Quarter 2006 Results

Revenues in the first quarter of 2006 were $2.3 million, compared with $2.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2005.

Net loss in the first quarter of 2006 was $2.2 million, or $0.12 per share, compared with a net loss of $2.5 million, or $0.13 per share, reported in the fourth quarter of 2005.

Gross margins in the first quarter improved to 71 percent, compared with 67 percent in the fourth quarter of 2005.

Operating expenses were $3.9 million in the first quarter, including $0.1 million of stock-based employee compensation charges in accordance with SFAS 123 (R). This compares with $4.3 million of operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2005, including $0.7 million of restructuring charges. The fourth quarter also reflected the reversal of accrued bonus expense of $0.5 million as operating results were below planned thresholds.

At March 31, 2006, LogicVision had $9.4 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments, and no bank debt.

New orders received during the first quarter totaled $3.3 million, of which $2.4 million is expected to be recognized as revenue ratably over the next 12 months. The company exited the first quarter with a record backlog of $21.0 million, including $7.4 million of deferred revenues, compared with a backlog of $20.3 million, including $6.7 million of deferred revenues, at the end of the fourth quarter. Approximately $8.5 million of the total backlog is expected to become recognized as revenue ratably over the next 12 months.

"This quarter, we are pleased to have achieved the highest first quarter bookings since 2002, and an increase of three times the bookings from a year ago. We entered the second quarter of 2006 with a record backlog. Our goal remains to achieve positive cash flow and profitability by the end of the year, and we believe we are on track to meet that goal," said James T. Healy, president and CEO of LogicVision.

"We booked four first-time customers in the first quarter, including AMD and AMI Semiconductor. In addition, we booked new business with ten existing accounts and eleven accounts renewed their current contracts. We believe that market momentum for our products continues to build, as companies move to using smaller manufacturing geometries, and the very real need for our eyes- in-the-die products becomes more and more apparent," Healy said.

    Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2006
    -- Revenues are expected to be in the range of $2.6 million to $2.7
       million, an expected increase of 11% to 15%.
    -- Net loss is expected to be in the range of $1.8 million to $2.0
       million, or a net loss in the range of $0.10 to $0.11 per share.
    -- Cash, cash equivalents and investments are expected to be approximately
       $9 million at the end of the second quarter
