26 Jul, 2012, 16:15 ET from KLA-Tencor Corporation

MILPITAS, Calif., July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- KLA-Tencor Corporation (NASDAQ: KLAC) today announced operating results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2012. KLA-Tencor reported GAAP net income of $248 million and GAAP earnings per diluted share of $1.46 on revenues of $892 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. For the year ended June 30, 2012, the company reported GAAP net income of $756 million and GAAP earnings per diluted share of $4.44 on revenues of $3.2 billion.

"Global consumer demand for advanced mobile devices continued to fuel exceptional growth for KLA-Tencor in fiscal year 2012, as we delivered strong financial performance and increased the cash returned to our stockholders through our dividend program," said Rick Wallace, KLA-Tencor's president and CEO. "Looking to fiscal year 2013, we anticipate our leading-edge process control technology will increasingly be adopted by IC manufacturers worldwide to cost-effectively make smaller, more complex chips. As a market leader, we're committed to extending the limits of manufacturing technology to further advance the mobility market, enabling manufacturers to add more functionality while decreasing power consumption: a critical combination to drive the ongoing development of affordable, next-generation devices."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information:

The non-GAAP and supplemental information provided in this press release is a supplement to, and not a substitute for, KLA-Tencor's financial results presented in accordance with United States GAAP.

To supplement KLA-Tencor's condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the company provides certain non-GAAP financial information, which is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude certain costs and expenses, as well as other supplemental information.  The non-GAAP and supplemental information is provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of KLA-Tencor's operating performance and its prospects in the future.  Specifically, KLA-Tencor believes that the non-GAAP information provides useful measures to both management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to KLA-Tencor's financial performance by excluding certain costs and expenses that the company believes are not indicative of its core operating results.  The non-GAAP information is among the budgeting and planning tools that management uses for future forecasting.  However, because there are no standardized or generally accepted definitions for most non-GAAP financial metrics, definitions of non-GAAP financial metrics (for example, determining which costs and expenses to exclude when calculating such a metric) are inherently subject to significant discretion.  As a result, non-GAAP financial metrics may be defined very differently from company to company, or even from period to period within the same company, which can potentially limit the usefulness of such information to an investor.  The presentation of non-GAAP and supplemental information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared and presented in accordance with United States GAAP.

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we provide certain non-GAAP financial information, which is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude certain costs and expenses, as well as other supplemental information. The non-GAAP and supplemental information is provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of our operating performance and our prospects in the future. Specifically, we believe that the non-GAAP information provides useful measures to both management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to our financial performance by excluding certain costs and expenses that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results. The non-GAAP information is among the budgeting and planning tools that management uses for future forecasting. However, because there are no standardized or generally accepted definitions for most non-GAAP financial metrics, definitions of non-GAAP financial metrics (for example, determining which costs and expenses to exclude when calculating such a metric) are inherently subject to significant discretion. As a result, non-GAAP financial metrics may be defined very differently from company to company, or even from period to period within the same company, which can potentially limit the usefulness of such information to an investor. The presentation of non-GAAP and supplemental information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared and presented in accordance with United States GAAP.

 

   a.  

Acquisition related charges include amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions.  Management believes that the expense associated with the amortization of acquisition related intangible assets is appropriate to be excluded because a significant portion of the purchase price for acquisitions may be allocated to intangible assets that have short lives, and exclusion of the amortization expense allows comparisons of operating results that are consistent over time for both KLA-Tencor's newly acquired and long-held businesses.  Management believes excluding these items helps investors compare our operating performance with our results in prior periods as well as with the performance of other companies.

 

   b.  

Restructuring, severance and other related charges include gains and costs associated with the company's facilities divestment and consolidation program and reductions in force.  Management believes that it is appropriate to exclude these items as they are not indicative of ongoing operating results and therefore limit comparability.  Management believes excluding these items helps investors compare our operating performance with our results in prior periods as well as with the performance of other companies.

 

   c.  

Restatement related charges include legal and other expenses related to the investigation regarding the company's historical stock option granting process and related stockholder litigation and other matters.  KLA-Tencor has paid or reimbursed legal expenses incurred by a number of its current and former directors, officers and employees in connection with the investigation of the company's historical stock option practices and the related litigation and government inquiries.  Management believes that it is appropriate to exclude these items as they are not indicative of ongoing operating results and therefore limit comparability.  Management believes excluding these items helps investors compare our operating performance with our results in prior periods as well as with the performance of other companies.

 

   d.  

Income tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments includes the income tax effects of the excluded items noted above.  Management believes that it is appropriate to exclude the tax effects of the items noted above in order to present a more meaningful measure of non-GAAP net income.

 

   e.   

Discrete tax items include the tax impact of shortfalls in excess of cumulative windfall tax benefits recorded as provision for income taxes during the period. Windfall tax benefits arise when a company's tax deduction for employee stock activity exceeds book compensation for the same activity and are generally recorded as increases to capital in excess of par value.  Shortfalls arise when the tax deduction is less than book compensation and are recorded as decreases to capital in excess of par value to the extent that cumulative windfalls exceed cumulative shortfalls.  Shortfalls in excess of cumulative windfalls are recorded as provision for income taxes.  When there are shortfalls recorded as provision for income taxes during an earlier quarter, windfalls arising in subsequent quarters within the same fiscal year are recorded as a reduction to income taxes to the extent of the shortfalls recorded.  Management believes that it is appropriate to exclude these items as they are not indicative of ongoing operating results and therefore limit comparability.  Management believes excluding these items helps investors compare our operating performance with our results in prior periods as well as with the performance of other companies.
