Applied Materials announces Q2 results

USA: Applied Materials Inc. reported results for its second quarter of fiscal 2013 ended April 28, 2013.

Applied generated orders of $2.27 billion, up 7 percent from the prior quarter, with Silicon Systems Group orders up 14 percent from the first quarter and Display orders up 41 percent sequentially. Net sales were $1.97 billion, up 25 percent sequentially.

Applied reported non-GAAP adjusted operating income of $285 million and non-GAAP adjusted net income of $199 million or 16 cents per diluted share. The company recorded a GAAP operating loss of $68 million and a GAAP net loss of $129 million or 11 cents per diluted share.

The GAAP net loss included $278 million in goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges associated with the Energy and Environmental Solutions (EES) segment, which were primarily the result of the further deterioration in solar equipment market conditions, along with $10 million in charges related to previously announced restructuring plans. The company continues to aggressively reduce spending in the EES segment.

"For the second quarter in a row, Applied had strong order performance of over $2 billion," said Mike Splinter, chairman and CEO. "We are seeing increasing pull from some of our largest strategic customers for our key enabling technologies. We remain committed to driving profitable growth."
