Management Comments

"We posted record revenues for the fourth quarter and for the whole year, exceeding the high end of our quarterly revenue guidance, due to strong demand for our Optical Metrology solutions during the quarter," commented Eitan Oppenhaim, President and CEO of Nova. "Our continuous investment in R&D to strengthen our leadership position in Optical Metrology for process control is clearly paying off and leading to increased market share in this high growth market.

"We continue to outpace the industry as we grow our placement in the Foundry segment, with a presence in multiple process steps in all advanced technology nodes. Our recent market share wins, combined with a diversified and enhanced product portfolio, position us very well for a solid start in 2014. The growth of the semiconductor equipment industry is fueled by growing investments in transitioning to advanced technology nodes and complex device structures. These challenging technology transitions require additional optical metrology measurements for better process control. Nova is well positioned to benefit from these trends and to continue its growth trajectory."
