FormFactor, Inc. has announced its financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2005 and for fiscal year ended December 31, 2005.
Quarterly revenues were a record $71.8 million, up 15% from $62.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2005, and up 56% from $46.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2004. Revenues for fiscal 2005 were $237.5 million, up 34% from $177.8 million in fiscal year 2004.
Joseph Bronson, President of FormFactor stated, "We are pleased with the Company's results this quarter, as we made substantial progress ramping production at our new, industry-leading MEMS facility. Our ability to execute during a time of rapid growth enabled us to exceed our revenue and profit targets."
Operating income for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2005 was 19.3% of revenues, compared to 13.7% for the third quarter of fiscal year 2005, and 11.3% in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2004. These percentages reflect incurred start-up costs related to our new manufacturing facility of $0.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2005, $2.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2005, and $2.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2004, as the Company ramped its new factory.
"Demand for the Company's leading-edge advanced technology products continued strong throughout the year, outpacing industry growth projections. We grew 34% in 2005, matching our compound annual growth rate for the last four years. New applications utilizing new chip designs accelerate the need for our industry leading products, which reduce costs on our customers' test floors," said CEO Igor Khandros.
