FormFactor, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Results
Company Delivers Strong Q4 Results, Expects Modest Decrease in Q1 Revenue

LIVERMORE, Calif. — February 6, 2019 —FormFactor, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORM) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 ended December 29, 2018. Quarterly revenues were $140.9 million, up 4.4% from $135.0 million reported in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, and up 6.8% from $131.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. For fiscal 2018, FormFactor posted revenues of $529.7 million, down 3.4% from $548.4 million in fiscal 2017, and achieved the following:

Delivered the strongest financial performance of the year in the fourth quarter
Demonstrated resilient business model in a challenging industry environment
Strengthened key customer relationships with world’s top logic, memory and foundry manufacturers as three 10% customers in Q4

“Our Q4’18 results demonstrated the strength and leadership we have in our served markets," said Mike Slessor, CEO of FormFactor, Inc. “Despite a very dynamic industry environment and several customer node transition delays, we delivered solid financial and operational results by capitalizing on our broad and diverse opportunity set in advanced probe cards and engineering systems.”

Fourth Quarter Highlights

On a GAAP basis, net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was $85.1 million, or $1.13 per fully-diluted share, compared to net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 of $7.7 million, or $0.10 per fully-diluted share, and net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 of $5.6 million, or $0.07 per fully-diluted share. Net income for fiscal 2018 was $104.0 million or $1.38 per fully-diluted share, compared to net income of $40.9 million, or $0.55 per fully-diluted share for fiscal 2017. GAAP net income includes a release of $75.8 million dollars of the valuation allowance which was previously recorded against the majority of our deferred tax assets.
 
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was $23.4 million, or $0.31 per fully-diluted share, compared to net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 of $19.6 million, or $0.26 per fully-diluted share, and net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 of $18.0 million, or $0.24 per fully-diluted share. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP net income and net income per share is provided in the schedules included below. On a non-GAAP basis, net income for fiscal 2018 was $76.1 million, or $1.01 per fully-diluted share, compared to net income of $89.5 million, or $1.21 per fully-diluted share for fiscal 2017.
 
Free cash flow for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was $15.8 million, compared to free cash flow for the third quarter of 2018 of $13.0 million, and free cash flow for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 of $23.5 million. Free cash flow for fiscal 2018 was $51.9 million, compared to free cash flow of $72.4 million for fiscal 2017. A reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow generation is provided in the schedules included below.

Outlook

“With all major customers innovating on existing nodes and utilizing existing capacity, the design-specific consumable nature of our products is significant, and we are continuing to experience solid new-design flow in the beginning of 2019. Along with the rest of the industry, our visibility is very limited at present, however, we expect these general trends to continue through the balance of this quarter,” concluded Dr. Slessor.







For the first quarter ending on March 30, 2019, FormFactor is providing the following outlook including the impact of deferred tax expenses:

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information:

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP measures of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share that are adjusted from the nearest GAAP financial measure to exclude certain costs, expenses and gains. Reconciliations of the adjustments to GAAP results for the three and twelve months ended December 29, 2018, as well as for the comparable periods of fiscal 2017, are provided below. Information regarding the ways in which management uses non-GAAP financial information to evaluate its business, management's reasons for using this non-GAAP financial information, and limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial information, is included under “About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjustments” following the tables below.

About our Non-GAAP Net Income (loss) and Adjustments:
We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share and free cash flow provides supplemental information that is important to understanding financial and business trends and other factors relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share are among the primary indicators used by management as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods, and by management and our board of directors to determine whether our operating performance has met certain targets and thresholds. Management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share when evaluating operating performance because it believes that the exclusion of the items indicated herein, for which the amounts or timing may vary significantly depending upon our activities and other factors, facilitates comparability of our operating performance from period to period. We use free cash flow to conduct and evaluate our business as an additional way of viewing our liquidity that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our cash flows. Many investors also prefer to track free cash flow, as opposed to only GAAP earnings. Free cash flow has limitations due to the fact that it does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures, and therefore it is important to view free cash flow as a complement to our entire consolidated statements of cash flows. We have chosen to provide this non-GAAP information to investors so they can analyze our operating results closer to the way that management does, and use this information in their assessment of our business and the valuation of our company. We compute non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP fully-diluted earnings per share by adjusting GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share to remove the impact of certain items and the tax effect of those adjustments. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or earnings per fully-diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results. We may expect to continue to incur expenses of a nature similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per fully-diluted share should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. For more information on the non-GAAP adjustments, please see the table captioned “Reconciliation of non-GAAP Net Income” and “Reconciliation of Cash Provided By Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow” included in this press release.
