Ultratech, Inc. (NasdaqGM: UTEK) today announced unaudited results for the three-month period ended April 4, 2009.
For the first quarter of fiscal 2009, Ultratech reported net sales of $25.7 million compared to $31.1 million during the first quarter of 2008. Ultratech's net income for the first quarter of 2009 was $0.2 million or $0.01 per share (diluted) compared to net income of $2.0 million or $0.08 per share (diluted) for the same quarter last year.
Arthur W. Zafiropoulo, Ultratech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "During the quarter, Ultratech's customers accelerated their plans to cut costs by scaling back their investments and reducing factory utilization throughout the period. As a result, we experienced declines in our revenue and our profitability for the period."
"We have taken further measures to reduce operating expenses, drive structural efficiencies and adjust the cost structure to reduce breakeven revenue levels and conserve cash during this extremely challenging business environment," continued Zafiropoulo.
"Over Ultratech's 30-year history, we have developed strategies that we believe allow us to effectively manage challenging business conditions with an eye toward future opportunities. While we can't change the economic climate in which we are operating, we believe that because of our market leadership, the resources we have in place and our experience, we are well equipped to manage through this period as we continue to execute our long-term strategy," Zafiropoulo concluded.
At April 4, 2009, Ultratech had $160 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. Working capital was $185 million and stockholders' equity was $8.20 per share based on 23,603,995 total shares outstanding on April 4, 2009.
