Intevac. (NASDAQ: IVAC) reported Q4 EPS of $0.05, $0.02 better than the analyst estimate of $0.03. Revenue for the quarter came in at $28.9 million versus the consensus estimate of $26.9 million.

“Given the immense challenges faced in 2020, we are pleased to report profitable results and strong cash flow generation for the year,” commented Wendell Blonigan, president and chief executive officer of Intevac. “Our profitable results were driven primarily by our Photonics business, which reported strong growth and a record year as a result of significant development revenues for the IVAS program, the first all-digital solution for the ground soldier. In our Thin-film Equipment (TFE) business, we achieved strong gross margin performance, primarily as a result of record sales of HDD upgrades for both the fourth quarter and full year. While total sales declined year-over-year as a result of COVID-related impacts to our TFE growth initiatives, our combined Photonics and HDD businesses actually grew 5% for the year, exceeding our expectations entering 2020.

“As we look forward, the IVAS program continues to be the primary revenue growth opportunity for Photonics. We expect to transition from the development stage into production over the course of this year, setting the stage for significant growth potential in our Photonics business for 2022 and beyond. In TFE, we expect the investment cycle for HDD media capacity expansions to begin by mid-2021, and accelerate into next year, in support of strong demand for mass-capacity data center storage and growth in high-performance computing. Finally, we believe the multiple evaluation and demo programs in our TFE growth initiatives will contribute to our overall growth story, and continue to support the long-term revenue growth and profitability objectives for Intevac,” concluded Mr. Blonigan.
