Coherent Inc. announced unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended September 27, 2014. For the quarter, net sales were $205,344,000 against $213,141,000 a year ago. Income from operations was $23,894,000 against $26,060,000 a year ago. Income before income taxes was $25,650,000 against $25,752,000 a year ago. Net income was $19,097,000 or $0.76 per diluted share against $20,515,000 or $0.83 per diluted share a year ago. Non-GAAP net income was $24,192,000 or $0.96 per diluted share against $25,573,000 or $1.03 per diluted share a year ago. Capital spending for the quarter was $5.5 million or 2.7% of sales and year-to-date spending was $23.4 million or 2.9% of sales. For the year, net sales were $794,639,000 against $810,126,000 a year ago. Income from operations was $76,866,000 against $84,899,000 a year ago. Income before income taxes was $79,219,000 against $83,496,000 a year ago. Net income was $59,106,000 or $2.36 per diluted share against $66,355,000 or $2.70 per diluted share a year ago. Non-GAAP net income was $79,891,000 or $3.19 per diluted share against $87,417,000 or $3.56 per diluted share a year ago. The company forecasts full fiscal 2015 capital spending to be approximately 4% of sales. The company projects pro forma tax rate to be in the range of 27% to 28% for the fiscal year, and this reflects the assumption that the federal R&D tax credits will not be reinstated during this fiscal year. Current outlook for the first quarter revenue ranges from $190 million to $200 million representing a sequential decrease, ranging from 2.5% to 7.5%.

Coherent Inc. Announces New AVIA NX Laser Offering Increased Performance and Lower Cost for Microelectronics Packaging Applications

AVIA series lasers from Coherent Inc. are well established in microelectronics packaging applications, and the latest AVIA NX sets a new standard for economy, reliability and ease of use. Specifically, these new q-switched, diode-pumped, solid-state lasers offer output powers as high as 40W at 355 nm, but with a substantially lower cost per watt than any other available product. Plus, AVIA NX models are much smaller, lighter, and more robust than other UV lasers of the same power level. These improvements have been achieved through a complete redesign of the product. This includes implementation of Coherent's patented pumping technology of the Nd:YVO4 gain medium, which delivers increased overall system efficiency (conversion of input electrical energy into usable light). It also incorporates Coherent's latest optical mounting technology, called PermAlign 2, which is a simpler and more compact method that yields enhanced stability and greater long term reliability. Plus, utilization of the newest generation of integrated microelectronics components enables a product which is both smaller and more reliable. Reliability is further enhanced through implementation of Highly Accelerated Life Testing and Stress Screening (HALT/HASS) protocols during AVIA NX production.
