NORTH READING, Mass., Oct. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teradyne, Inc. (NASDAQ: TER) reported revenue of $582 million for the third quarter of 2019 of which $398 million was in Semiconductor Test, $73 million in System Test, $69 million in Industrial Automation and $42 million in Wireless Test. GAAP net income for the third quarter was $135.9 million or $0.75 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP basis, Teradyne’s net income in the third quarter was $133.4 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, which excluded acquired intangible asset amortization, restructuring and other, non-cash convertible debt interest, discrete income tax adjustments, and included the related tax impact on non-GAAP adjustments.
“Our Semiconductor Test business continued to deliver strong results in the quarter driving company sales and earnings above the July guidance ranges, despite Industrial Automation’s lower than expected revenue growth of 4% compared to last year’s Q3 level,” said Teradyne President and CEO Mark Jagiela. “Ongoing demand for 5G infrastructure and Flash memory test drove our Semiconductor Test performance in the quarter. In Industrial Automation, while mobile robot demand at MiR remained strong, and Universal Robots saw pockets of growth in Asia, overall demand at UR was lower than expected as weakness in the manufacturing sector impacted our business in the US and Europe.”
Guidance for the fourth quarter of 2019 is revenue of $590 million to $630 million, with GAAP net income of $0.63 to $0.74 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income of $0.73 to $0.84 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.
“In Q4, our strong outlook is driven mainly by continued 5G and memory related Semiconductor Test demand and improved storage test shipments,” Jagiela commented. “For the full year, at the mid-point of our guidance, we expect our year-over-year sales to grow more than 7% to over $2.2 billion and non-GAAP earnings per share to grow 16%.”
