FormFactor, Inc. Reports 2018 Second Quarter Results

August 1, 2018

LIVERMORE, Calif., Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FormFactor, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORM) today announced its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 ended June 30, 2018. Quarterly revenues were $135.5 million, up 14.6% from $118.3 million reported in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, and down 5.9% from $144.0 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal 2017.

-- Quarterly revenue exceeded mid-point of the outlook range, reflecting stronger demand across each of our businesses -- Non-GAAP gross margins and EPS were above the outlook range, resulting from favorable product mix and good operational execution

Mike Slessor, CEO of FormFactor, Inc. said, “In the second quarter of 2018, FormFactor again demonstrated the resilience of its diversified business model by delivering solid revenue growth. We benefited from a product mix biased towards our differentiated high-end products, driven primarily by growth in advanced packaging applications. Coupled with solid execution by our operations teams, this favorable mix produced gross margins near the levels of our target financial model, and, with good expense control, produced earnings per share above the high end of our outlook range.”

Second Quarter Highlights

On a GAAP basis, net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 was $9.1 million, or $0.12 per fully-diluted share, compared to net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 of $2.1 million, or $0.03 per fully-diluted share, and net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 of $17.6 million, or $0.24 per fully-diluted share. We reported second quarter gross margin of 41.5%, compared with 38.2% in the first quarter of 2018, and 42.9% in the second quarter of 2017.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 was $20.4 million, or $0.27 per fully-diluted share, compared to net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 of $12.7 million, or $0.17 per fully-diluted share, and net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 of $29.2 million, or $0.40 per fully-diluted share. We reported second quarter non-GAAP gross margin of 45.9%, compared with 43.3% in the first quarter of 2018, and 47.6% in the second quarter of 2017.

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 second quarter of fiscal 2018 was $16.8 million, compared to free cash flow for the first quarter of 2018 of $6.3 million, and free cash flow for the second quarter of 2017 of $21.2 million.

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.
