Results In Line with Guidance
SAN JOSE, Calif. – July 26, 2005 – LogicVision, Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN), a leading provider of yield learning capabilities that enable its customers to quickly and effectively improve product yields, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2005.
Revenues in the second quarter were $2.5 million, compared with $3.7 million in the first quarter of 2005.
Net loss in the second quarter was $2.8 million, or a net loss of $0.15 per share, compared with a net loss of $1.8 million, or a net loss of $0.10 per share, reported in the first quarter of 2005.
Gross margins in the second quarter were 70 percent, compared with 79 percent in the first quarter. The decrease in gross margins was a result of a change in revenue mix between license and services.
Operating expenses were $4.6 million, compared with $4.8 million in the first quarter of 2005. The company received a research and development credit, which decreased expenses
At June 30, 2005, LogicVision had $20.5 million in cash, cash equivalents, and investments, with $3.6 million of outstanding bank debt.
The company exited the second quarter with a backlog of $15.3 million, including $6.3 million of deferred revenues, compared with a backlog of $16.0 million, including $6.8 million of deferred revenues, at the end of the prior quarter.
“Our bookings nearly doubled from Q1 to Q2,” said James T. Healy, president and CEO of LogicVision. “Q2 bookings were below plan, largely due to a major million dollar-plus order that was delayed until the week after the quarter’s close. We expect to see our bookings regain momentum in the next couple of quarters.
“In June, we introduced LV2005, an easy-to-use embedded test solution that enables successful integration of embedded test capabilities with minimal impact to the design flow and schedule. We believe that this exciting product addresses the growing need for a comprehensive, cost-effective embedded test and measurement solution aimed at decreasing field returns,” said Healy.
Guidance for the Third Quarter of 2005
• Revenues in Q3 are expected to be in the range of $2.1 million to $2.2 million. Our Q3 revenue guidance is impacted by the level of new orders booked in the first half of 2005.
• Net loss in Q3 is expected to be in the range of $3.7 million to $3.9 million, or a net loss in the range of $0.19 to $0.21 per share. The larger expected net loss is a result of lower revenues, combined with the company’s expectation that operating expenses will increase somewhat compared with Q2.
• Cash, cash equivalents and investments are expected to be approximately $16 million at the end of Q3. Cash is expected to be impacted by the expected quarterly operating loss and working capital requirements.
