NORTH READING, Mass., April 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teradyne, Inc. (NYSE:TER) reported revenue of $487 million for the first quarter of 2018 of which $373 million was in Semiconductor Test, $49 million in Industrial Automation, $43 million in System Test, and $23 million in Wireless Test. GAAP net profit for the first quarter was $87.0 million or $0.43 per share. On a non-GAAP basis, Teradyne’s net income in the first quarter was $89.4 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, which excluded acquired intangible asset amortization, restructuring and other charges, non-cash convertible debt interest, discrete income tax adjustments, and included the related tax impact on non-GAAP adjustments.
"Despite the strong first quarter results, the demand outlook for 2018 mobile device test capacity declined sharply in the quarter and our second quarter guidance reflects that revised outlook. Those strong first quarter results included record Nextest memory shipments and the highest Eagle analog test shipments in over two years reflecting healthy demand in the automotive, industrial, and NAND Flash markets,” said CEO and President Mark Jagiela. “Universal Robots’ high growth continued in the quarter driven by broad based demand for UR’s easy to use collaborative robots and the group is on-track for 50%+ full year growth."
Guidance for the second quarter of 2018 is revenue of $490 million to $520 million, with GAAP net income of $0.39 to $0.46 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income of $0.45 to $0.52 per diluted share. Non-GAAP guidance excludes acquired intangible asset amortization, non-cash convertible debt interest, restructuring and other charges and includes the related tax impact on non-GAAP adjustments.
