"Operationally, LogicVision performed well during the first quarter of 2009, especially in light of the current state of the economy," said James T. Healy, president and CEO of LogicVision. "This allowed us to achieve solid first quarter financial results, including revenues in line with guidance, cash and cash equivalents at about $6.9 million, with cash and receivables totaling about $8.9 million, and strong quarterly bookings. We were pleased to have recorded our first quarter of operating profit in the past seven years; however, the approximate $243,000 in costs we incurred associated with considering our strategic alternatives resulted in a net loss for the quarter.
"While there are preliminary indications that the economy may be reaching a bottom, we believe that the recovery will take some time. Some of our customers are continuing to express uncertainty about their businesses and as such, we plan to continue our ongoing cost-control measures this quarter. In the longer term, we believe that the economic turmoil has caused some companies to more seriously re-evaluate their 'make' versus 'buy' decisions, which could positively impact us in the future."
Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2009
-- Revenues are expected to be in the range of $2.9 million to $3.0 million. -- Net loss is expected to be in the range of $100,000 to $0, or a net loss in the range of $0.01 to $0.00 per share. We expect to be break-even, or profitable, on an operating basis. -- Cash, cash equivalents and investments are expected to be between approximately $5.5 million and $6.0 million at the end of the second quarter.
