Management Comments

"Our second quarter results were in-line with expectations. We are pleased to obtain five new design wins, indicating that companies consistently want to use Cimetrix products as they develop new systems," stated Bob Reback, president and chief executive officer. "As expected, runtime license revenue associated with customer machine shipments increased from the first quarter. However, SDK license revenue decreased from the high number of design wins achieved during the first quarter. The net result was new software licenses revenue decreased 14% quarter-to-quarter. The increase in software license updates and product support on a quarter-to-quarter basis, as well as year-over-year, is a strong indicator of a growing customer base of OEM's that have been designing new systems with Cimetrix products."

"Lastly, since the industry downturn that occurred during 2008 and 2009, we modified our business model and have been profitable for 16 consecutive quarters. Because of this track record and likelihood of continued profitability, and after careful and conservative analysis, the second quarter results include a $1.4 million valuation of the deferred tax asset."

Second Quarter 2013 Highlights

  • Five new customer design wins. The Company was awarded five new design wins for its factory connectivity software design kits (SDKs) from companies in North America and Asia. The customers are developing equipment for 300mm semiconductor wafer fabrication and for equipment outside of the semiconductor industry. These wins are expected to provide new runtime license revenue beginning in 2014 and continuing for many years.
  • $1.4 million valuation of deferred tax asset. Stockholders' equity significantly increased.
  • New CIMConnect Service Release. We have shipped the new CIMConnect service release to customers, which adds new features and enhancements, as well as supporting changes to SEMI connectivity standards.

Third Quarter 2013 Outlook

Industry analysts, particularly from SEMI, have been maintaining that 2013 will be a flat-to-slightly down year for semiconductor equipment, with the expectation that there will be a recovery in 2014. We believe Cimetrix is well-positioned for the long-term, and we are maintaining our focus on new product development, disciplined cost controls, and earning new customers.
