AXT Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Financial Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended Sept. 30, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fourth Quarter of 2014

AXT Inc. reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company’s revenue was $23,138,000 compared with $20,521,000 a year ago. Income from operations was $653,000 million against loss from operations of $2,623,000 a year ago. Income before provision for income taxes was $913,000 against loss before provision for income taxes of $2,269,000 a year ago. Net income attributable to the company was $644,000 or $0.02 per diluted share against net loss attributable to the company of $2,295,000 or $0.07 per diluted share a year ago. Gross margin in the third quarter was 23.0% compared with 19.4% of revenue for the second quarter in 2014. This is a result of certain manufacturing efficiencies and a favorable product mix. Net interest and other income for the third quarter was $260,000 compared with a $1.2 million gain last quarter. For the nine months, the company’s revenue was $63,932,000 compared with $66,732,000 a year ago. Loss from operations was $2,262,000 against $6,047,000 a year ago. Loss before provision for income taxes was $150,000 against $5,303,000 a year ago. Net loss attributable to the company was $1,077,000 or $0.04 per diluted share against $6,730,000 or $0.21 per diluted share a year ago. The company is expecting fourth quarter to be seasonally down as it has been for the last few years. Therefore, the company expects total revenues of between $20.5 million and $21.5 million. This takes into account a moderate decline in semi-insulating and semi-conducting gallium arsenide substrates and approximately comparable sequential revenue in germanium substrates, indium phosphide substrates and raw materials.
