Verigy Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2010 Financial Results

CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - November 23, 2010) - Verigy Ltd. (NASDAQ: VRGY), a premier semiconductor test company, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 2010. Total revenue for the fourth quarter was $159 million, a sequential increase of 3 percent from $154 million in the previous quarter. For fiscal year 2010, total revenue was $539 million, a year-over-year increase of 67 percent from $323 million in 2009.

Net income for the fourth quarter was $10 million, or $0.17 per share, compared to net income of $13 million, or $0.21 per share, in the prior quarter, and a net loss of $12 million, or ($0.20) per share, in last year's comparable quarter. The results for the fourth quarter included approximately $8 million of charges, including amounts related to the company's restructuring actions, impairment of goodwill and fixed assets, merger transaction costs, and a loss on the sale of an investment. After excluding these charges, Verigy reported non-GAAP net income of $18 million, or $0.29 per share, for its fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.

For fiscal year 2010, net income was $16 million, or $0.26 per share, compared to last year's net loss of $127 million, or ($2.17) per share. On a non-GAAP basis, the company reported full year net income of $34 million, or $0.57 per share, compared to last year's non-GAAP net loss of $87 million, or ($1.49) per share. A reconciliation of the company's GAAP to non-GAAP results is included in the tables accompanying this press release.

Orders for the fourth quarter were $123 million and represented a book-to-bill ratio of 0.77. For fiscal year 2010, orders totaled $569 million, an increase of approximately 76 percent from last year, and represented a book-to-bill ratio of 1.06 for the year.

"Our solid fourth quarter performance was fueled by the ongoing demand for our Port Scale RF product, with 75 percent growth in the installed base from one year ago," said Keith Barnes, Verigy's chairman and chief executive officer. "For the full year, we remained focused on our product and technology roadmap, continued to invest in market segments that we expect to grow significantly better than the overall space, and brought several new products to market."

"During the fiscal year, we made continued improvements in our operating leverage, reduced our cost structure, and returned the company to profitability," said Bob Nikl, Verigy's chief financial officer. "We again generated positive cash flow during the quarter and, as we announced last week, we expect to initiate an odd-lot and share repurchase program upon approval of our shareholders."

Outlook for Q1 2011

For the first quarter ending Jan. 31, 2011, the company is providing the following guidance:

--  Revenue is expected to be in the range of $115 million to $120 million.
--  At the present time, the company is not providing GAAP earnings per
    share since it is not yet able to assess the total amount of
    transaction-related expenses and potential restructuring costs that it
    will be incurring in Q1. These expenses may be significant.
--  Earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis are expected to be in the range
    of ($0.03) to $0.02.
--  Share based compensation expense is expected to be between $4.3 million
    to $4.5 million.

Forward-Looking Statements

This earnings release contains forward-looking statements, including statements about our expected revenue, expenses, earnings and share repurchase plans. Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. The risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, uncertainty surrounding the timing and strength of the global economic recovery and the impact on our industry, the strength of our customers' businesses, unforeseen changes in the demand for current and new products and technologies, the impact of our pending merger with LTX-Credence and the receipt of necessary shareholder approvals. Additional factors that may cause results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements are discussed in our most recent SEC filings.

Information about Non-GAAP Measures

Verigy is supplementing its financial results presented on a GAAP basis by providing non-GAAP measures to evaluate the operating performance of the company. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter ended October 31, 2010, excludes the effects of charges related to restructuring actions, impairment of goodwill and fixed assets, merger transaction costs, and a loss on the sale of an investment. Non-GAAP net income for the year ended October 31, 2010, also excludes additional items, as set forth in the attached tables. Since management finds the non-GAAP information to be useful, the company believes that its investors may also benefit from seeing the company's results "through the eyes" of management in addition to seeing its GAAP results. This information also facilitates management's internal comparisons to historical operating results as well as to the operating results of its competitors. A reconciliation between the company's GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided in the attached tables, and can be found in the IR section of the company's website at http://investor.verigy.com. Readers are reminded that non-GAAP numbers are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures. They should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures.

* In accordance with accounting guidance, the computation of diluted EPS
  for the three months ended October 31, 2010 includes the dilutive effect
  of our convertible senior notes.  As a result, non-GAAP net income is
  adjusted to add back the related interest expense of approximately
  $1.9 million.

The convertible senior notes are antidilutive for the twelve months ended
October 31, 2010 on a non-GAAP basis and are also anitdilutive for both the
three and the twelve months ended October 31, 2010 on a GAAP basis.
