Intevac Announces First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq: IVAC) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended April 3, 2021.

“As expected, the first quarter of 2021 was challenging, as we experienced a pause in revenue momentum within both of our businesses,” commented Wendell Blonigan, president and chief executive officer of Intevac. “In Photonics, the pause was chiefly related to the completion of night vision camera deliveries for the funded R&D stage of the IVAS program, and in our Thin-film Equipment (TFE) business, we are in a period of reduced capital investments by our hard disk drive (HDD) customers. At the same time, highlights of the quarter included the successful completion of our INTEVAC MATRIX(R) evaluation program for advanced semiconductor packaging, which resulted in our first purchase order, and first revenues, in this new market for Intevac. We announced an incremental new $7 million development program in Photonics that demonstrates the U.S. military’s continued commitment to Intevac’s gated SWIR LIVAR(R) technology for new weapon systems applications. We also demonstrated our ability to manage our cash and discretionary spending during a difficult quarter. Notably, we improved upon our already strong balance sheet by generating positive cash flow from operations, ending the first quarter with $53.6 million in total cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and investments, an increase of $3.2 million since year-end 2020.

“While these pauses in revenue momentum will be challenging to our financial results in the near term, our longer-term outlook remains strong. We continue to expect Intevac will participate in a meaningful way in the major programs and technology trends that are positively impacting the outlooks for both Photonics and TFE. These include being a supplier of digital night vision technology for our U.S. military ground soldiers, and being the world’s leading provider of HDD media production systems as the industry moves forward with capacity expansion plans in support of strong secular growth in data center and cloud storage. Our continued progress in MATRIX and VERTEX evaluation programs and demos provide additional growth potential, incremental to the strong growth expected in our two core markets. Our demonstrated ability to preserve our balance sheet as we navigate through these lean periods will serve us well, as we expect a return to growth in 2022.”

First Quarter 2021 Summary

The net loss was $6.5 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2020.

Revenues were $16.2 million, including $9.2 million of TFE revenues and $7.0 million of Photonics revenues. TFE revenues consisted of one MATRIX PVD system for advanced semiconductor packaging, as well as HDD upgrades, spares and service. Photonics revenues consisted of $3.8 million of product sales and $3.2 million of research and development contracts. In the first quarter of 2020, revenues were $18.8 million, including $8.0 million of TFE revenues which consisted of upgrades, spares and service. Photonics revenues consisted of $5.9 million of product sales and $5.0 million of research and development contracts.

TFE gross margin was 23.1%, compared to 44.0% in the first quarter of 2020. The decline was primarily due to product mix, given the lower-margin contribution from the first MATRIX PVD system in the first quarter of 2021 and the higher mix of higher-margin HDD upgrades in the first quarter of 2020. Photonics gross margin was 13.1%, compared to 42.8% in the first quarter of 2020. The decline was primarily due to lower margins on research and development contracts resulting from higher costs related to additional work needed in order to complete the integration of our camera into the IVAS platform as we neared the end of the development program. Consolidated gross margin was 18.8%, compared to 43.3% in the first quarter of 2020.

R&D and SG&A expenses were $9.6 million, compared to $9.3 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Order backlog totaled $43.1 million on April 3, 2021, compared to $46.9 million on January 2, 2021 and $87.2 million on March 28, 2020. Backlog at both April 3, 2021 and January 2, 2021 did not include any 200 Lean(R) HDD systems. Backlog at March 28, 2020 included two 200 Lean HDD systems.

The Company ended the quarter with $53.6 million of total cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and investments and $97.2 million in tangible book value.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
