Applied Materials Sees Year Results Short Of Wall Street Views

Relateret indhold

DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

Applied Materials Inc. (AMAT) forecast fiscal 2012 results just shy of Wall Street estimates due to a sharp capacity-driven downturn in its solar and display equipment markets.

The company estimated earnings for the year ending in October at 85 cents to 95 cents a share on revenue of between $9.1 billion and $9.5 billion. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters expect 96 cents a share on $9.59 billion.

Applied Materials makes tools used to make chips, television screens and some solar panels, a sector that tanked in the second half of 2011 as a supply glut forced manufacturers to scale back orders for new equipment.

The company said it expects continued strength in it core semiconductor business.

Chief Executive Mike Splinter said in a Dow Jones Newswires interview Tuesday the solar industry will likely suffer from overcapacity for about a year, forcing the equipment maker to cut additional costs from its business. While 2012 could be tough, Splinter expects 2013 to be a "reasonable" and profitable year for Applied's solar business.

The company reported last month its fiscal first-quarter profit slumped 77% on weaker sales and acquisition costs, though the semiconductor-equipment maker said recent orders would deliver a stronger result in the fiscal second quarter.
