APPLIED MATERIALS FIRST QUARTER RESULTS EXCEED EXPECTATIONS

  • Expects record net sales of more than $11 billion and non-GAAP EPS of more than $1.50 in fiscal 2011
  • Raises wafer fab equipment market forecast for calendar 2011 to between $34-36 billion
  • Strong solar equipment sales drove record EES operating profit in Q1

  • Non-GAAP EPS grew 177% year over year

 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 24, 2011 -- Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMAT), the world's leading supplier of manufacturing solutions for the semiconductor, display and solar industries, today reported results for its first quarter of fiscal 2011 ended Jan. 30, 2011. Applied generated orders of $2.97 billion, net sales of $2.69 billion, operating income of $674 million, and net income of $506 million or $0.38 per share. Non-GAAP operating income was $659 million, and non-GAAP net income was $484 million or $0.36 per share.

 

"Applied's solid first quarter was driven by continued strength in semiconductor systems and record profitability in solar," said Mike Splinter, chairman and chief executive officer. "We see momentum building in our end markets and expect our company's fiscal year revenue to be more than $11 billion, exceeding our previous record by over a billion dollars. We now expect wafer fab equipment spending to be up 10 to 15 percent from approximately $31 billion in calendar 2010, with crystalline silicon solar equipment spending rising by more than 30 percent year over year."

 

"On a year-over-year basis, our non-GAAP earnings per share grew more than 170 percent on a 45 percent increase in net sales, demonstrating our focus on operating efficiencies and profitability improvement," said George Davis, executive vice president and chief financial officer. "With the improving market outlook, we expect to deliver record non-GAAP earnings of more than $1.50 per share in fiscal 2011."

Display orders declined 19 percent from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 to $142 million. Net sales were $147 million, down 48 percent from the fourth quarter, primarily driven by a cyclical decline in LCD equipment demand. Operating income decreased to $28 million or 19 percent of net sales.

The non-GAAP EPS amounts do not take into account other non-GAAP adjustments that may arise subsequent to this release.

 

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Management uses non-GAAP results to evaluate the company's operating and financial performance in light of business objectives and for planning purposes. These measures are not in accordance with GAAP and may differ from non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by other companies. Applied Materials believes these measures enhance investors' ability to review the company's business from the same perspective as the company's management and facilitate comparisons of this period's results with prior periods. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
