Teradyne, Inc. (NASDAQ: TER) stated revenue of $520M for the fourth quarter of 2018 of which $342M was in Semiconductor Test, $84M in Industrial Automation (IA), $54M in System Test and $40M in Wireless Test. GAAP net income for the fourth quarter was $143.8M or $0.79 per share. On a non-GAAP basis, Teradyne’s earnings within the fourth quarter was $113.0M, or $0.63 per diluted share, that excluded restructuring and different charges, purchased intangible asset amortization, pension actuarial gains, non-cash convertible debt interest, discrete income tax adjustments, and included the related tax impact on non-GAAP adjustments.
“We finished 2018 with strong fourth quarter sales above the high end of our guidance driven by upside demand in our Semiconductor and Wireless test businesses,” stated CEO and President Mark Jagiela. “For the total year, our Semiconductor Test group delivered record memory and analog revenues, which lessened the impact of lower mobility test shipments. Gross margin for the year was at a record level due mainly to continue Universal Robots manufacturing cost reductions and a favorable product mix overall. In IA, Universal Robots’ full year growth of 38%, while strong, was below our target due mainly to slowing demand in China and the automotive sector. MiR sales for the year over doubled on a pro-forma basis.”
