California Micro Devices Reports 1st Quarter Financial Results

7/26/2002 - California Micro Devices (Nasdaq:CAMD) today announced financial results for its first quarter, which ended June 30, 2002. Exceeding revenue estimates, the company reported sales of $9.4 million, up 54 percent from the year ago quarter, and up 15 percent from $8.2 million last quarter. The net loss per share met estimates at the most favorable end of the range as it narrowed to $0.18, representing a 51 percent improvement from the year ago quarter and a 61 percent improvement compared to the net loss per share of $0.46 last quarter.

"Our performance in the June quarter shows that our strategy to grow by achieving greater penetration in selected high-volume markets is working," said Robert V. Dickinson, president and chief executive officer. "We saw revenue in two of our three core markets grow sequentially, with Mobile revenue growing by over 90 percent and Lighting revenue posting a gain of more than 40 percent. While Computing revenue was flat due to soft personal computer market conditions, this market continues to be our largest revenue contributor with significant opportunities for our products to achieve deeper penetration."

Citing both growing demand and a major customer placing orders with longer lead times, Dickinson reported that bookings increased to $12.5 million compared to the $8.5 million in the prior quarter. As the June quarter closed, the company marked a major milestone by shipping its 20 millionth chip scale packaged (CSP) device, demonstrating market acceptance as well as the company's substantial manufacturing capacity for these small-footprint products. "We continue to be encouraged by the increasing demand we are seeing for our products," he added, noting that the company captured 71 design wins during the June quarter, most of which were in the Mobile and Computing markets.
