Rehovot, Israel, June 3, 2015 – Nova Measuring Instruments Ltd. (NASDAQ: NVMI), a leading innovator and a key provider of metrology solutions for advanced process control used in semiconductor manufacturing, today increased its outlook for the second quarter of 2015, with adjusted quarterly revenue guidance of $37-$39 million, compared to previously guided numbers of $33-$35 million. Based on the adjusted revenue estimates, management now expects GAAP EPS to be in the range of $0.00 to $0.04, and Non GAAP EPS to be in the range of $0.14 to $0.18.
“We are excited to see that following the acquisition of ReVera, we are experiencing better than expected revenue for the second quarter,” commented Eitan Oppenhaim, President and CEO of Nova. “Our efforts to further strengthen our position in the most advanced nodes appear to be successful with growing orders for advanced 10/16 FinFET nodes. In fact, the new quarterly guidance reflects more than $14 million in aggregate revenues from our largest foundry customer. This guidance indicates record revenue quarter for Nova, and puts us on track for a third consecutive record-high revenue year in 2015.”
