Orders in the second quarter of 2016 were $471 million of which $391 million were in Semiconductor Test, $30 million in System Test, $26 million in Industrial Automation, and $23 million in Wireless Test.
“Strong customer demand for our semiconductor test products drove second quarter revenue to the highest level in 4 years and contributed to our highest first half revenue in 15 years,” said CEO and President Mark Jagiela. “On the bookings front, we saw continued solid System-on-a-Chip test demand in the mobile device market, record orders for our Magnum family of memory test systems, and another quarter of explosive growth in collaborative robot demand.
“At the same time, we’ve seen a significant decline in the projected size of the wireless production test market served by our Wireless Test segment. In light of this, we’ve written down the goodwill and intangible asset carrying values of this segment. While disappointing, we’re taking the actions necessary to put the business on a solid financial foundation for the future.
“Looking ahead, our guidance for the third quarter reflects continued strength in Industrial Automation, seasonal patterns in Semiconductor Test, and continued weakness in Wireless Test.”
Guidance for the third quarter of 2016 is revenue of $375 million to $405 million, with GAAP net income of $0.22 to $0.30 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income of $0.23 to $0.30 per diluted share. Non-GAAP guidance excludes acquired intangible asset amortization and includes non-GAAP tax adjustments.

Non-GAAP gross margin excludes pension actuarial gains and losses. GAAP requires that these items be included in determining gross margin. Non-GAAP gross margin dollar amount and percentage are non-GAAP measures that management believes provide useful supplemental information for management and the investor.
