Q1 sales up 15% sequentially to $81.1 million with GAAP gross margin of approx. 40% Q1 GAAP income per share of $0.24; non-GAAP adjusted EPS of $0.35 Record orders with continued momentum in automotive, mobility and IoT markets April 27, 2017 04:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time POWAY, Calif.--( BUSINESS WIRE )--Cohu, Inc. (NASDAQ:COHU) today reported fiscal 2017 first quarter net sales of $81.1 million and GAAP income of $6.8 million or $0.24 per share. The Company also reported non-GAAP results, with first quarter 2017 income of $9.9 million or $0.35 per share. (in millions, except per share amounts) Q1 FY 2017 (in millions, except per share amounts) Q1 FY 2017 Q1 FY 2016 (2) (3)   All amounts presented are from continuing operations. (2) In the fourth quarter of 2016 the Company early adopted ASU 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, (ASU 2016-09). As a result of the adoption of ASU 2016-09 certain amounts in the quarter ended March 26, 2016 have been restated as if the new accounting guidance was adopted starting with the first day of our 2016 fiscal year. The impact of these restatements was not significant. (3) Non-GAAP results for the first quarter of 2016 were revised in the current period to exclude the impact of other acquisition costs incurred in connection with the acquisition of Kita Manufacturing Ltd. (“Kita”) on January 4, 2017. Total cash and investments at the end of the first quarter were $106.2 million and decreased from the year ended December 31, 2016 primarily as a result of the purchase of Kita. Luis Müller, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cohu stated, “We had an excellent quarter with improved financial results and record system shipments from our Malaysia operation. Semi equipment orders were at an all-time high with strong demand for turret and pick-and-place handlers, as well as multiple contactor design-wins. There is also robust customer demand for our just acquired Kita spring probe product lines.” Müller concluded, “End-market dynamics and customer forecasts are expected to result in another quarter of book-to-bill above one. We continue to capture new device test and inspection applications for our handlers and benefit from increasing semiconductor package integration.” Cohu expects second quarter 2017 sales to be approximately $86 million. Cohu's Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share payable on July 28, 2017 to shareholders of record on June 16, 2017. Cohu has paid consecutive quarterly cash dividends since 1977.
