"We are pleased with our third quarter financial results. Our revenue was at the high end of the guidance we gave in July, our net loss was better than the guidance we gave, and our cash balance increased to $7.5 million," said James T. Healy, president and CEO of LogicVision. "We are seeing some booking volatility. The current state of the economy has resulted in delayed orders. On the other hand we believe that are building good momentum with leading semiconductor companies for adoption of our test and diagnostic solutions to help them streamline production and yield ramp of customer's designs at the right costs. As companies move to lower nodes, larger designs and convergent technologies the problem of affordable quality becomes more pronounced and therefore our value more compelling thus driving broader adoption of logic-BIST," said Mr. Healy.
Guidance for the Fourth Quarter of 2008
-- Revenues are expected to be in the range of $3.0 million to $3.2 million. -- Net loss is expected to be in the range of $600,000 to $800,000, or a net loss in the range of $0.06 to $0.08 per share. -- Cash, cash equivalents and investments are expected to be between approximately $5.0 million and $5.5 million at the end of the fourth quarter.
