(1) On June 6, 2014 the Company announced the completion of the sale of substantially all the assets of its video camera segment, Cohu Electronics and, as a result, the operating results of Cohu Electronics have been presented as discontinued operations and all prior period amounts have been reclassified accordingly. All amounts presented are from continuing operations.

 

Sales of semiconductor equipment accounted for 95% of fiscal 2014 second quarter sales and microwave communications equipment contributed 5%.

Orders were $98.5 million for the second quarter of 2014 and $77.4 million for the first quarter of 2014. Orders for semiconductor equipment were $95.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $74.3 million in the first quarter of 2014. Total consolidated backlog was $118.7 million at June 28, 2014 compared to $98.1 million at March 29, 2014. Cohu expects third quarter 2014 sales of $84 million to $91 million.

James A. Donahue, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “Sales were at the top end of our guidance with orders and backlog establishing new records for Cohu. Financial results reflect continued progress in achieving our new operating model as well as the benefits of higher volume.”

Donahue concluded, “Demand was strong across market segments for our broad product line of IC test handlers and inspection equipment and third quarter orders are off to a strong start. The transition of our volume pick and place handler manufacturing to our Malaysia factory is proceeding as planned and scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.”

Cohu's Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share payable on October 24, 2014 to shareholders of record on August 29, 2014. Cohu has paid consecutive quarterly cash dividends since 1977.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information:

Included within this press release are non-GAAP financial measures that supplement the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations prepared under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures adjust the Company's actual results prepared under GAAP to exclude charges and the related income tax effect for share-based compensation, the amortization of acquired intangible assets, manufacturing transition costs, employee severance costs, other acquisition costs and the purchase accounting inventory step-up included in cost of goods sold. Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP amounts for the periods presented herein are provided in schedules accompanying this release and should be considered together with the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

These non-GAAP measures are not meant as a substitute for GAAP, but are included solely for informational and comparative purposes. The Company's management believes that this information can assist investors in evaluating the Company’s operational trends, financial performance, and cash generating capacity. Management believes these non-GAAP measures allow investors to evaluate Cohu’s financial performance using some of the same measures as management. However, the non-GAAP financial measures should not be regarded as a replacement for (or superior to) corresponding, similarly captioned, GAAP measures.

Forward Looking Statements:

Certain matters discussed in this release, including statements regarding the transition of manufacturing to Malaysia, expectations of business and market conditions, orders, sales, revenues and operating results are forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or forecasted. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, risks associated with acquisitions, inventory, goodwill and other intangible asset write-downs; our ability to convert new products under development into production on a timely basis, support product development and meet customer delivery and acceptance requirements for next generation equipment; our reliance on third-party contract manufacturers; failure to obtain customer acceptance resulting in the inability to recognize revenue and accounts receivable collection problems; customer orders may be canceled or delayed; the concentration of our revenues from a limited number of customers; intense competition in the semiconductor test handler industry; our reliance on patents and intellectual property; compliance with U.S. export regulations; and the cyclical and unpredictable nature of capital expenditures by semiconductor manufacturers. These and other risks and uncertainties are discussed more fully in Cohu's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the most recently filed Form 10-K and Form 10-Q. Cohu assumes no obligation to update the information in this release.

(1) The three- and six-month periods ended June 28, 2014 and June 29, 2013 were comprised of 13 weeks and 26 weeks, respectively. On June 6, 2014 the Company announced the completion of the sale of substantially all the assets of its video camera segment, Cohu Electronics and, as a result, the operating results of Cohu Electronics have been presented as discontinued operations and all prior period amounts have been reclassified accordingly.

 

(2) The Company has utilized the "control number" concept in the computation of diluted earnings per share to determine whether a potential common stock instrument is dilutive. The control number used is income/loss from continuing operations. The control number concept requires that the same number of potentially dilutive securities applied in computing diluted earnings per share from continuing operations be applied to all other categories of income or loss, regardless of their anti-dilutive effect on such categories. Therefore, no dilutive effect is recognized in the calculation of income from discontinued operations per share or net income per share for the six months ended June 28, 2014 and of income from discontinued operations per share for the three and six months ended June 29, 2013.

Management believes the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operating performance. Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company's operating results, as well as when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods and these non-GAAP measures allow investors to evaluate the Company’s financial performance using some of the same measures as management. Management views share-based compensation as an expense that is unrelated to the Company’s operational performance as it does not require cash payments and can vary in amount from period to period and the elimination of amortization charges provides better comparability of pre and post-acquisition operating results and to results of businesses utilizing internally developed intangible assets. Manufacturing transition costs relate principally to employee severance expenses incurred as a result of moving certain manufacturing activities to Asia as part of our cost reduction efforts and employee severance are costs incurred in conjunction with the termination of certain employees to streamline our operations and reduce costs. Management has excluded these costs primarily because they are not reflective of the ongoing operating results and they are not used to assess ongoing operational performance. Other acquisition costs and inventory step-up have been excluded by management as they are unrelated to the core operating activities of the Company and the frequency and variability in the nature of the charges can vary significantly from period to period. Excluding this data provides investors with a basis to compare Cohu’s performance against the performance of other companies without this variability. However, the non-GAAP financial measures should not be regarded as a replacement for corresponding, similarly captioned, GAAP measures. The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures above may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies and investors should be careful when comparing our non-GAAP financial measures to those of other companies.

(a) 1.3%, (5.3)% and (7.9)% of net sales, respectively.
(b) To eliminate compensation expense for employee stock options, stock units and our employee stock purchase plan.
(c) To eliminate the amortization of acquired intangible assets.
(d) To eliminate manufacturing transition and employee severance costs.
(e) To eliminate professional fees and other direct incremental expenses incurred related to the acquisition of Ismeca.
(f) To eliminate the inventory step-up costs incurred related to the acquisition of Ismeca.
(g) 7.3%, 1.5% and (2.7)% of net sales, respectively.
(h) To adjust the provision for income taxes related to the adjustments described above based on applicable tax rates.

(i) The three months ended March 29, 2014 was computed using 25,715 shares outstanding as the effect of dilutive securities was excluded from GAAP diluted common shares due to the reported net loss under GAAP, but are included for non-GAAP diluted common shares since the Company has non-GAAP net income. All other periods presented were computed using number of GAAP diluted shares outstanding for each period.
