"In 2012, Cascade Microtech executed on our new product roadmap and outgrew the semiconductor capital equipment industry while setting new records for annual revenue and profitability. We have been able to secure a number of new design wins in our production probes market and have seen strong adoption of our new system products launched in 2012. This coupled with our nearly 8,000 installed systems globally, has continued to strengthen our customer position. Due to our scalable infrastructure, we believe that modest revenue improvement will provide significant leverage to the bottom line. We believe we are well positioned for the market to recover in 2013," said Michael Burger, President and CEO.

Financial outlook

Based upon the industry's seasonality, for the first quarter of 2013 revenue is expected to be in the range of $26.0 million to $29.0 million. GAAP earnings per share guidance is expected to be in the range of $0.06 to $0.10 on a fully-diluted basis, assuming no significant one-time charges or changes in foreign currency rates.
