Nanometrics Incorporated (Nasdaq: NANO), a leading supplier of advanced metrology equipment to the semiconductor industry, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 29, 2008.

Revenues for the first quarter were $34.7 million, representing a 5% increase from fourth quarter 2007 revenues of $33.2 million and a 6% decrease from first quarter 2007 revenues of $37.1 million. Net loss for the first quarter was $0.7 million, or $0.04 per share, inclusive of a restructuring charge of $0.9 million related to the workforce reduction announced in January 2008. This compares to a net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.07 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2007 and a net loss of $4.6 million, or $0.26 per share, for the first quarter of 2007.

The first quarter 2008 operating loss of $0.9 million includes non-cash charges of $1.3 million for amortization of acquired intangible assets, $0.9 million for stock-based compensation expenses and $1.0 million for depreciation.

"I am pleased to announce a solid quarter for Nanometrics," commented Tim Stultz, president and chief executive officer. "In spite of a challenging market environment, we grew revenues, continued to improve our service business and added nearly $4 million to our cash balance. We now have a complete team that is executing on our strategy, objectives and business model and, while we have more work to do, I am confident we are on the right track."
