04/20/00 20:07 Numerical Technologies Reports Record Sales for First Quarter of 2000; Year-to-Year Revenue Growth Exceeds 80 Percent By Business Editors/High-Tech Writers
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 20, 2000--Numerical Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:NMTC) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2000. Numerical reported record revenues of $3.5 million, up 83% over the same period last year and up 84% from the previous quarter.
§ Excluding non-cash charges associated with acquisition-related cost, deferred stock compensation charges, and depreciation charges, operating loss for the quarter was $2.2 million, compared to a profit of $11,000 over the same period last year and a loss of $1.8 million last quarter. Losses generated in the last two quarters were a result of the company's planned investment in the development, marketing and sales activities needed to meet the semiconductor industry demand for subwavelength design-to-silicon solutions as the industry migrates to semiconductors feature sizes smaller than 0.18 micron.
§ Acquisition-related non-cash charges in the quarter consisted of $4.8 million of amortization of goodwill and other intangibles associated with the acquisition of Transcription Enterprises Ltd., on January 1, 2000. Other non-cash charges in the quarter included $5.2 million associated with deferred stock compensation and depreciation charges of $219,000.
§ "In Q1, Numerical achieved several major milestones," stated Buno Pati, President and CEO of Numerical. "The adoption of our patented phase shifting technology by semiconductor manufacturers continues to grow. We announced an agreement with Texas Instruments (NYSE:TXN) and signed an agreement with another major semiconductor manufacturer this quarter for the production use of our patented technology, from which we expect to generate future production licensing revenues."
§ In January 2000 Numerical completed the acquisition of Transcription Enterprises, a dominant player in the manufacturing data preparation market, which is a critical component of the design-to-silicon infrastructure. In this quarter the company also finalized a long-term multi-million dollar agreement with Cadence Design Systems (NYSE:CDN) to integrate and market Numerical's subwavelength software and technology. Numerical also continued to aggressively expand key strategic alliances with semiconductor design-to-silicon infrastructure providers, announcing new alliances with Canon (NASDAQ:CANNY), Silicon Valley Group (NASDAQ:SVGI) and Ultratech Stepper (NASDAQ:UTEK) in the semiconductor equipment sector and Artisan Components (NASDAQ:ARTI), Cadabra, Nurlogic, and Virtual Silicon Technology in the design library sector.
§ Pati concluded, "We raised over $80 million through the successful completion our initial public offering and we are continuing to aggressively execute on our plan to provide a comprehensive subwavelength solution that enables the semiconductor industry to continue its march to smaller, faster, and more power-efficient integrated circuits."
§ Due to the SEC quiet period, the company will not have a conference call for this earnings release. Conference call schedules for future earnings releases will be available at www.numeritech.com. § About Numerical

Numerical Technologies Climbs on Buy, Strong Buy Calls Shares of Numerical Technologies? (NMTC) stock soared 11.2% to 49 49/64 Thursday after coverage of the semiconductor manufacturer was initated by SG Cowen, CS First Boston, and Chase Hambrecht & Quist.
Chase H&Q and CS First Boston placed strong buys on Numerical as SG Cowen put a buy on the shares. Numerical, a San Jose, Calif.-based designer of proprietary technologies and software products that enable the design and manufacture of small integrated circuits, on April 20 reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2000, the first public reporting period for the company since its IPO on April 7, 2000.
Numerical said it earned $3.5 million in its fiscal first quarter, up 83% over the same period last year and up 84% from the previous quarter.
SG Cowen said its buy rating was based on forecasted explosive growth in subwavelength semiconductors, as well as strong licensee deals and partnerships with major suppliers including Dupont, Applied Materials, and Zygo.
?Numerical technology is building a very important franchise in the semiconductor industry,? said SG Cowen analyst Raj Seth, who said that for customers that want to create very small semiconductor designs, there is no alternative.
