NORTH READING, Mass., Jan. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teradyne, Inc. (NASDAQ: TER) reported revenue of $759 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 of which $524 million was in Semiconductor Test, $104 million in System Test, $40 million in Wireless Test and $92 million in Industrial Automation (IA). GAAP net income for the fourth quarter was $196.3 million or $1.05 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP basis, Teradyne’s net income in the fourth quarter was $193.2 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, which excluded pension actuarial losses, acquired intangible asset amortization, restructuring and other charges, non-cash convertible debt interest, and included the related tax impact on non-GAAP adjustments.
“Stronger than expected growth at Universal Robots drove Q4 sales and profits above guidance and capped an extraordinary year for Teradyne,” said CEO and President Mark Jagiela. “For the full year, company sales grew 36% and non-GAAP earnings per share 62%, the seventh consecutive year of earnings growth. The annual results were driven by increased revenue in all our test businesses, highlighted by Semiconductor Test’s 46% and System Test’s 43% growth. While the global slowdown in industrial activity compressed the automation market for much of 2020, we are encouraged by the improving global industrial outlook and the sooner-than-expected return to year-over-year growth at Universal Robots.
“After an exceptionally strong Q4, we enter 2021 expecting record Q1 level sales and profits driven by continued strong test demand, including a notable recovery in automotive related semiconductor test shipments.”
Teradyne’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per share, payable on March 19, 2021 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on February 19, 2021. The Board also authorized a $2 billion share repurchase program and the company expects to repurchase a minimum of $600 million of its common stock in 2021.
Guidance for the first quarter of 2021 is revenue of $720 million to $780 million, with GAAP net income of $0.86 to $1.00 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income of $0.95 to $1.11 per diluted share. Non-GAAP guidance excludes acquired intangible asset amortization, non-cash convertible debt interest and includes the related tax impact on non-GAAP adjustments.
