“We are pleased with our financial results for the third quarter,” commented inTEST President and CEO Nick Grant. “We delivered solid results in line with our expectations, resulting in sequential revenue and profitability growth. Net revenues of $14.4 million grew 9% and non-GAAP adjusted net earnings per diluted share of $0.07 increased from $0.05 as compared to the second quarter of 2020.” Mr. Grant added, “We are seeing improving conditions in most markets we serve and had good order activity from new customers during the third quarter. While COVID-related challenges continue to impact the overall operating environment, order flow has continued to strengthen, with third quarter bookings of $14.4 million increasing 4% from the second quarter.”

Mr. Grant continued, “We are operating in a challenging environment that rewards innovation and are meeting the demanding requirements of our customers with an impressive breadth of products to serve our global customer base. As we continue to strengthen our capabilities and enhance our position in the industry, we are building an enduring business.”

2020 Fourth Quarter Financial Outlook
inTEST’s guidance for the 2020 fourth quarter includes estimates of both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures. 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 fourth quarter of 2020 will be in the range of $14.0 million to $15.0 million and that on a GAAP basis, our net loss per diluted share will range from $(0.08) to $(0.03). On a non-GAAP basis, we expect our adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share will range from $(0.05) to breakeven. In addition, we expect that gross margin will range from 44% to 45%. 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.

The Company noted that guidance for the fourth quarter includes $1.3 million in non-recurring charges associated with (i) the consolidation of the Company’s EMS Products division into the manufacturing operation located in Mt. Laurel, NJ, and (ii) the reduction of the administrative footprint in the Company’s Mansfield, MA corporate office associated with the reestablishment of the Mt. Laurel, NJ office as the Company’s corporate headquarters. Excluding the non-recurring charges, the Company’s guidance for the fourth quarter of 2020 would have been for GAAP net earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.02 to $0.10 and non-GAAP adjusted net earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.05 to $0.13.

Mr. Grant commented, “Absent the non-recurring charges, our guidance for the fourth quarter of 2020 would have represented an improvement in our financial results as compared to the third quarter. We initiated cost reduction activities in the third quarter that included rightsizing our New Jersey EMS operation and consolidation of our California manufacturing into New Jersey. These actions not only provide cost reductions through footprint optimization, but they also allow us to better serve our global customers through streamlined operations. We expect that the consolidation of our EMS manufacturing will result in substantial annual savings going forward.”

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 and EBITDA. Adjusted net earnings (loss) is derived by adding acquired intangible amortization, adjusted for the related income tax expense (benefit), to 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). 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 and 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, 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.
