NORTH READING, MA / ACCESSWIRE / April 24, 2024 / Teradyne, Inc. (NASDAQ:TER) reported revenue of $600 million for the first quarter of 2024 of which $412 million was in Semiconductor Test, $75 million in System Test, $25 million in Wireless Test and $88 million in Robotics. GAAP net income for the first quarter was $64.2 million or $0.40 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP basis, Teradyne's net income in the first quarter was $82.5 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, which excluded stock compensation modification expense, acquired intangible asset amortization, restructuring and other charges, losses on foreign exchange options in connection with acquisitions and divestitures, and included the related tax impact on non-GAAP adjustments.

"Despite continued weakness in mobility, greater than expected memory and networking demand driven by Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications combined with Robotics shipments in-line with our expectations drove company revenue and earnings above the high end of our guidance in the quarter," said Teradyne CEO, Greg Smith. "Strength in memory and computing is driving stronger than expected performance in the first half of the year, however visibility beyond the second quarter remains limited. In Robotics, we expect new products, new applications and our global distribution channel improvements to fuel growth through the balance of the year."

Guidance for the second quarter of 2024 is revenue of $665 million to $725 million, with GAAP net income of $0.90 to $1.10 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income of $0.64 to $0.84 per diluted share. Non-GAAP guidance excludes acquired intangible asset amortization and a gain on the anticipated sale of Teradyne's Design Interface Solutions business to Technoprobe S.p.A. as well as the related tax impact on non-GAAP adjustments.

Non-GAAP Results

In addition to disclosing results that are determined in accordance with GAAP, Teradyne also discloses non-GAAP results of operations that exclude certain income items and charges. These results are provided as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP net income exclude acquired intangible assets amortization, restructuring and other, pension actuarial gains and losses, stock compensation modification expense, gains and losses on foreign exchange options in connection with acquisitions and divestitures, discrete income tax adjustments, and includes the related tax impact on non-GAAP adjustments. GAAP requires that these items be included in determining income from operations and net income. Non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP income from operations as a percentage of revenue, non-GAAP net income as a percentage of revenue, and non-GAAP net income per share are non-GAAP performance measures presented to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Teradyne's baseline performance before gains, losses or other charges that may not be indicative of Teradyne's current core business or future outlook. These non-GAAP performance measures are used to make operational decisions, to determine employee compensation, to forecast future operational results, and for comparison with Teradyne's business plan, historical operating results and the operating results of Teradyne's competitors. Non-GAAP diluted shares include the impact of Teradyne's call option on its shares. Management believes each of these non-GAAP performance measures provides useful supplemental information for investors, allowing greater transparency to the information used by management in its operational decision making and in the review of Teradyne's financial and operational performance, as well as facilitating meaningful comparisons of Teradyne's results in the current period compared with those in prior and future periods. A reconciliation of each available GAAP to non-GAAP financial measure discussed in this press release is contained in the attached exhibits and on the Teradyne website at www.teradyne.com by clicking on "Investor Relations" and then selecting "Financials" and the "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation" link.
