Ultratech, Inc. (Nasdaq:UTEK) today announced unaudited results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2007.
For the first quarter of fiscal 2007, Ultratech reported net sales of $27.4 million compared to $34.9 million during the first quarter of 2006. Ultratech's net loss for the first quarter of 2007 was $3.2 million or $0.14 per share compared to a net profit of $1.6 million or $0.06 per share (diluted) for the same quarter last year.
Arthur W. Zafiropoulo, Ultratech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "At the end of 2006, we recognized the need to resize our company in response to changing market conditions. Since that decision was made, Ultratech has continued to make headway operationally and I am pleased with our plan execution during the quarter. Most notably, during the quarter, we recognized revenue for two LSA100 tools, improved gross margins by decreasing manufacturing and logistics costs, reduced inventories and increased cash."
"Although the business environment of the semiconductor industry continues to be uncertain, our strategy to drive operational efficiencies on a global scale remains unchanged. Ultratech continues to aggressively manage our operating expenses while maintaining our commitment to create long-term growth and value for our stockholders. We believe that these strategies are designed to enhance our operating performance through the course of this year and in following years," Zafiropoulo concluded.
At March 31, 2007, Ultratech had $129 million in cash, cash equivalents, short-term and long-term investments. Working capital was $112 million and stockholders' equity was $7.39 per share based on 23,251,782 total shares outstanding on March 31, 2007.
