Feb 04, 2013, 16:10 ET from Axcelis Technologies, Inc.

BEVERLY, Mass., Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Axcelis Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: ACLS) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012. The Company reported fourth quarter revenue of $44.6 million, compared to $44.6 million for the third quarter of 2012.  Net loss for the quarter was $14.8 million, or ($0.14) per share, which included:  a $7.9 million gain from the sale of the Company's dry strip intellectual property and related assets to Lam Research Corporation in December 2012; a $13.4 million charge associated with an inventory write off; and $0.6 million of restructuring charges.  This compares to a net loss for the third quarter of 2012 of $8.7 million. Cash and cash equivalents were $45.0 million at December 31, 2012, which included $8.7 million from the sale of assets to Lam Research.

For the full year 2012, the Company reported revenue of $203.4 million, compared with $319.4 million for full year 2011. Net loss for the year was $34.0 million or ($0.32) per share.  This compares to net income for the full year 2011 of $5.1 million, or $0.05 per diluted share.  The full year 2012 results reflect the $7.9 million gain on the sale of assets to Lam Research, the $13.4 million charge associated with an inventory write off, and $4.2 million of restructuring charges.

Commenting on the Company's performance, Chairman and CEO Mary Puma said, "Conditions during the fourth quarter remained challenging, pressuring both systems and GSS revenues.  Despite this, Axcelis generated cash from operations in the quarter, excluding the Lam transaction proceeds, and delivered financial operating results as expected.  We are committed to managing through the cycle with solid fiscal and operational management.  Our strong product portfolio and the opportunities from our collaborative relationship with Lam give Axcelis momentum entering 2013."

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Conference Call The Company will host a conference call today at 5:00 pm ET to discuss results for the fourth quarter and full year 2012.  An audio webcast will be available on the Investor page of Axcelis' website at www.axcelis.com, or by dialing 1.888.713.4205 (1.617.213.4862 outside North America).  Participants calling into the conference call will be requested to provide the pass code 55840939.
