Intevac Announces First Quarter 2024 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq: IVAC) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 30, 2024.


Q1 Highlights:

  • Continued strong demand for technology upgrades for hard disk drive (HDD) media resulted in sales of nearly $10 million and gross margin approaching 44% for the quarter.
  • New orders exceeded $20 million for the quarter, and included HDD technology upgrade bookings from multiple customers, including initial HAMR (heat-assisted magnetic recording) upgrade orders from a leading data storage company.
  • Completed agreement related to payment terms with a major HDD customer.
  • Resolved our JDA agreement in order to work directly with key OEMs and their direct suppliers, which led to the April shipment of an initial TRIO™ system to a display cover glass finishing facility in Asia.
  • Total cash, restricted cash and investments were $65 million at quarter end, and with more meaningful accounts receivable collections quarter-to-date the current balance is over $75 million.

“We are pleased to demonstrate our critical role in the HDD ecosystem with Q1 revenues approaching $10 million, consisting primarily of HAMR technology upgrade sales,” commented Nigel Hunton, president and chief executive officer. “Our HDD backlog of $53 million at quarter-end reflects continued strong bookings for upgrades in support of our customers’ strategic technology roadmaps, and supports the visibility and longevity of a multi-year HAMR investment cycle, which in Q1 expanded for the first time to multiple HDD customers. We expect these strategic investments to boost areal density will continue to drive strength in our HDD business for several years, and with continued advancements in reducing the cost-per-bit of HDD storage we agree with industry expectations of robust demand for hard drive media.

“With our first TRIO shipping into the field earlier this month, the level of excitement amongst Intevac employees is real,” continued Mr. Hunton. “Since achieving qualification of the initial TRIO system just prior to year-end 2023, we have continued to navigate the complexities of the display cover glass ecosystem for consumer electronics. We successfully reached an agreement to deliver our first TRIO system in April, which is expected to convert to revenue upon successful end-customer qualification. We continue to believe the TRIO platform will be our major growth driver for the future, and the strong end-market customer demand and pull for the impressive capabilities and performance of our system helped drive the successful shipment of the first system earlier this month.” Mr. Hunton concluded, “We remain steadfast in our focus to successfully transform Intevac into a consistently profitable company with a strong growth trajectory, and our decision to focus on the long-term potential of each of our flagship systems during the first quarter culminated in both an immediate return to HDD upgrade deliveries and the collection of overdue receivables, as well as the shipment of our first TRIO. I wish to thank the incredible Intevac team of employees who are executing phenomenally and we also wish to thank our stockholders for their continued support.”
