Revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was $110.1 million, an increase of 9.6% compared to the first quarter of 2013 and an increase of 8% compared to the same period a year ago. Semiconductor revenue was 86% of total revenue and revenue outside the U.S. accounted for 30% of total revenue for the second quarter of 2013. Gross margin was 14.6%, compared to 13.8% for the previous quarter and 14.0% for the same period a year ago.

The Company recorded net income of $2.3 million, or $0.08 per share in the second quarter of 2013 compared to a net loss of $0.3 million, or $(0.01) per share, in the previous quarter and net income of $2.8 million, or $0.12 per share, for the same period a year ago. The company’s tax rate for the second quarter of 2013 was 20.1%. The financial information presented for the second quarter of 2012 does not include the operations of Advanced Integration Technologies (“AIT”), which Ultra Clean acquired on July 3, 2012.

Cash at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $71.3 million, an increase of $6.4 million from the previous quarter. Outstanding debt was $68.4 million at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2013, a decrease of $2.4 million from the previous quarter.

Clarence Granger, Ultra Clean’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “I am pleased that during the quarter we had several noteworthy achievements as we continued to see a recovery in the semiconductor capital equipment industry. Our cash balance was at an all-time high of $71.3 million while we reduced our debt by nearly $2.4 million. Our gross margins improved by nearly a full percentage point quarter over quarter and our inventory levels continued to decline with increased operational focus. We also continued our integration activities with AIT as we focus on the synergies created by combining the two companies.”

Commenting on Ultra Clean’s corporate guidance, Granger noted: “We expect revenue for the third quarter of 2013 to range between $103 million to $110 million, with earnings per share in the range of $0.03 to $0.08. Excluding amortization associated with the merger with AIT we expect earnings per share to be in the range of $0.06 to $0.12. We are forecasting a tax rate of 24% for the third quarter and a tax rate of 24% for the year.”
