Intevac Announces First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Santa Clara, Calif.—May 3, 2023—Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq: IVAC) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended April 1, 2023.

Q1 Highlights:



Revenue of $11.5 million was at the upper end of expectations, a 3% increase from the previous quarter and up 160% from Q1 of 2022;



With gross margin of 41% and operating expenses of $9.2 million, the net loss from continuing operations was $0.16 per share, favorable to expectations; and



Continued progress, in partnership with our joint development partner, developing the TRIO platform for the coating of consumer electronics devices.

“We are pleased to deliver Q1 revenues at the upper end of our expectations, which is demonstrative of our strong partnerships with our hard disk drive (HDD) customers as we continue to enable the successful migrations of their technology roadmaps,” commented Nigel Hunton, president and chief executive officer. “We are pleased with the progress made during the quarter developing our TRIO platform, which we believe will be our major growth driver for the future. We successfully completed the first system build at Intevac headquarters, and we are now transitioning to full process integration in advance of the qualification phase with our joint development partner, which is a major provider of glass and glass ceramic materials. During the quarter, we also utilized our strong cash balance to invest in working capital in support of our customers.

“Looking forward, our efforts are focused squarely upon two strategic objectives, which are achieving successful results of our joint development partnership for the TRIO, and continuing to provide our HDD customers with the technology and capabilities to enable their ramp of next-generation HDD media. Given the widespread weakening of consumer demand across the electronics industry, the overall business environment has become increasingly challenging, especially related to forecasted growth rates for mass-capacity drive demand.” Mr. Hunton concluded, “We are steadfast in our focus to successfully transform Intevac into a consistently profitable company with a strong growth trajectory. We are making the investments necessary to enable this transformational growth, and we look forward to delivering on positive results and increased traction with our new TRIO partner, while continuing to leverage our 20-year history of HDD leadership to enable the next generation of media technology.”
