Photronics Inc. Revises Earning Guidance for the First Quarter Ended February 2, 2014

Photronics Inc. revised earning guidance for the first quarter ended February 2, 2014. For the quarter, the company now expects to report revenue of around $101.5 million, lagging its previous guidance looking for $103 million to $107 million in revenue during the period. The revenue shortfall also is resulting in the company's per-share earnings likely coming up short of its predicted range of $0.06 to $0.10, with PLAB now expecting EPS of $0.03 to $0.04. The company expects that its first quarter revenue and EPS will be lower than previously anticipated as a result of a number of factors, including a slower than projected post-holiday recovery in its mainstream business in the U.S. and Europe, a delayed ramp in its high-end memory, and the absence of a pre-Lunar New Year pull-in in Taiwan.
