NORTH READING, Mass., Oct. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teradyne, Inc. (NYSE: TER) reported revenue of $567 million for the third quarter of 2018 of which $417 million was in Semiconductor Test, $66 million in Industrial Automation, $50 million in System Test, and $34 million in Wireless Test. GAAP net profit for the third quarter was $120.0 million or $0.63 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP basis, Teradyne’s net income in the third quarter was $133.3 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, which excluded acquired intangible asset amortization, non-cash convertible debt interest, restructuring and other charges and included the related tax impact on non-GAAP adjustments.
"Increased third quarter sales, combined with favorable product mix, drove earnings above our guidance," said President and CEO Mark Jagiela. "In Semiconductor Test, sales increased 5% compared to Q3'17 due to continued strength in automotive and industrial chip test markets combined with increased memory test demand for our expanded Magnum product line. Universal Robots (UR) growth, combined with 2018 acquisitions MiR and Energid, drove our Industrial Automation sales up 64% compared to Q3'17. Growing traction for UR’s next generation e-Series Cobots and expanded distribution for MiR's mobile platform powered the growth and positions us for a strong finish to the year.
With expected strong Industrial Automation and Semiconductor Test shipments, the mid-point of our Q4 guidance delivers another year with over $2 billion in sales and over $2 of earnings per share."
Guidance for the fourth quarter of 2018 is revenue of $480 million to $510 million, with GAAP net income of $0.39 to $0.46 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income of $0.46 to $0.54 per diluted share. Non-GAAP guidance excludes acquired intangible asset amortization, non-cash convertible debt interest, restructuring and other charges and includes the related tax impact on non-GAAP adjustments.
