2019 Second Quarter Highlights

  • Second quarter thermal segment bookings increased 37% sequentially.
    • Defense/aerospace bookings were received for a variety of products intended for satellite, tactical, and secure communications applications.  Also included was a new aerospace customer for ThermoStream® brand products for long wave infrared cameras.
    • Thermonics® process chillers achieved record bookings levels, driven by semiconductor and defense customers.  Several of the chiller orders were for the chemical extraction market.
    • We received significant orders for Ambrell EKOHEAT® induction heating equipment from an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for use in Chemical Vapor Deposition equipment and from a customer in the medical sector.
    • A new customer for critical processing of silicon carbide semiconductor materials placed an order for several Ambrell EKOHEAT® systems.
  • Second quarter semiconductor test related bookings increased 24% sequentially.
    • inTEST EMS secured an order for a new jointly developed interface product with a prominent integrated aerospace test and measurement manufacturer supporting 5G device test.
    • A major US-based fabless semiconductor manufacturer placed significant probe docking system orders.
    • Top tier Integrated Device Manufacturers continued to purchase EMS products for immediate increased test capacity and the next product ramp cycle.

inTEST President & CEO James Pelrin commented, “I am very pleased with the manner in which the entire inTEST team performed in a challenging environment.  Despite incurring a slight operating loss, we reported a solid gross margin and our balance sheet continues to be healthy.  Second quarter total bookings increased 34% sequentially, paving the way for our expectations of increasing revenues in the second half of 2019.”

Mr. Pelrin added, “Beginning this quarter, we are referring to our business somewhat differently in order to more crisply define our historical roots in serving the inherently cyclical semiconductor market and the many other large, more diversified and growing markets for our precision equipment.  As the cornerstone of inTEST, the semiconductor market (Semi Market) is an important component of our business.  Complementing this market is our ‘Non-Semi’ market, which will now be known as our ‘Multi Markets.’ ‘Multi Markets’ represents our diversification and refers to any markets other than the semiconductor market.  This stems from our strategic objective of growing our business in non-semiconductor markets both organically as well as through acquisition.  It is important to note that business within our Thermal segment can fall into either ‘Semi’ or ‘Multi,’ depending upon how our customers utilize our products or upon their respective applications.”

Mr. Pelrin concluded, “We are continuing to expand the company from our foundation in semiconductors to be a broad-based supplier to multiple strategic markets, and our product set and our technologies continue to be in demand.  We continue to strive to excel with our capabilities to deliver precision-engineered thermal, mechanical and electronic solutions, and believe we are also well positioned to participate as the semiconductor industry rebounds.”

2019 Third Quarter Financial Outlook
inTEST’s guidance for the 2019 third 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 third quarter of 2019 will be in the range of $14.5 million to $15.5 million and that on a GAAP basis, net earnings per diluted share will range from $0.02 to $0.06.  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.

Non-GAAP Results
In addition to disclosing results that are determined in accordance with GAAP, we also disclose non-GAAP financial measures.  These non-GAAP financial measures include adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA.  Adjusted net earnings (loss) is derived by adding acquired intangible amortization, adjusted for the related income tax expense (benefit), 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.  EBITDA is derived by adding acquired intangible amortization, interest expense, income tax expense, and depreciation to net earnings (loss). Adjusted EBITDA is derived by removing any change in the fair value of our contingent consideration liability from EBITDA.  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, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial 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 financial 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 EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, which are discussed in this earnings release, is contained in the tables below.  The non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this earnings release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.  The presentation of non-GAAP financial 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.
