Jonathan Chou, Kulicke & Soffa's Interim Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, stated, "This quarter's strong sequential revenue and operating income increases were driven by solid demand within our core offerings and also our advanced packaging mass reflow solutions. Our broad offerings continue to satisfy new capacity and capability requirements for our comprehensive base of customers."

During the March quarter, the Company incurred a total tax expense of $7.0 million. This quarterly tax expense included a discrete tax item of $4.4 million related to a settlement associated with a previous year. Net income of $5.1 million would have been $9.5 million without this discrete item.

  • Wedge bonder equipment net revenue increased by 11.6% over the December quarter.
  • Advanced Packaging Mass Reflow equipment net revenue increased by 152.7% over the December quarter.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2016 Financial Highlights

  • Net revenue of $156.4 million.
  • Gross margin of 44.5%.
  • Net income of $5.1 million or $0.07 per share.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $482.0 million as of April 2, 2016.
  • 7.9 million shares had been repurchased since the stock repurchase program's August 2014 initiation, equivalent to 10.1% of weighted average shares outstanding at the program's inception.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2016 Outlook

The Company currently expects net revenue in the third fiscal quarter of 2016 ending July 2, 2016 to be approximately $195 million to $205 million.

Looking forward, Jonathan Chou commented, "Our broadening product offerings continues to be closely aligned with major industry trends which are driving capacity and capability requirements. As we have in the March quarter, we expect to continue benefiting from new System-In-Package demand requirements through the near term. In the longer-term we are well positioned to participate in growth associated with the Automotive, Industrial and Advanced Packaging segments."
