“Demand for our innovative test and process technology solutions is strong and we ended the year with good momentum,” noted Mr. Grant. “Fourth quarter bookings increased 22% sequentially and 58% year-over-year, while net revenues increased 3% sequentially and 9% year-over-year and were at the high end of our guidance. Backlog increased by $5.9 million compared to the end of 2019 and we continue to generate positive cash flow.

“We enter 2021 optimistic for the year ahead. Market tailwinds and investments are driving growth, the worldwide chip shortage is expected to last into next year, utilization rates are projected to stay historically high, which normally correlates to strong semiconductor business for inTEST, and we are making inroads into a number of growth markets and segments outside of the semiconductor market.” Mr. Grant concluded, “We are meeting the demanding requirements of our customers with an impressive breadth of products to serve our global customer base; and with our business growing, we expect to approach record bookings levels for the first quarter of 2021.”
