Note 1—Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Veeco Instruments Inc. (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, “Veeco”, the “Company”, “we”, “us”, and “our”, unless the context indicates otherwise) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S.”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation (consisting of normal recurring accruals) have been included. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2013. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012.

 

Consistent with prior years, we report interim quarters, other than fourth quarters which always end on December 31, on a 13-week basis ending on the last Sunday of each period. The interim quarter ends are determined at the beginning of each year based on the 13-week quarters. The 2013 interim quarter ends are March 31, June 30 and September 29. The 2012 interim quarter ends were April 1, July 1 and September 30. For ease of reference, we report these interim quarter ends as March 31, June 30 and September 30 in our interim condensed consolidated financial statements. We have reclassified certain amounts previously reported in our financial statements to conform to the current presentation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates made by management include: the best estimate of selling price for our products and services; allowance for doubtful accounts; inventory valuation; recoverability and useful lives of property, plant and equipment and identifiable intangible assets; investment valuations; fair value of derivatives; recoverability of goodwill and long-lived assets; recoverability of deferred tax assets; liabilities for product warranty; accruals for contingencies; equity-based payments, including forfeitures and performance based vesting; and liabilities for tax uncertainties. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Basic (loss) income per common share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted (loss) income per common share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares and common equivalent shares outstanding during the period, as adjusted. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, we reported net losses applicable to common shareholders, and accordingly, the basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding are equal because any increase to basic weighted average shares outstanding would be antidilutive. This resulted in our excluding from the computation 0.6 million common equivalent shares that would have otherwise been dilutive for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

 

Additionally, not included above, were additional stock options and restricted stock outstanding that had exercise or grant prices in excess of the average market value of our common stock during the period and are therefore antidilutive. There were 1.0 million and 1.1 million such underlying shares for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively. There were 1.1 million and 1.2 million such underlying shares for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

We recognize revenue when all of the following criteria have been met: persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists with a customer; delivery of the specified products has occurred or services have been rendered; prices are contractually fixed or determinable; and collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue is recorded including shipping and handling costs and excluding applicable taxes related to sales. A significant portion of our revenue is derived from contractual arrangements with customers that have multiple elements, such as systems, upgrades, components, spare parts, maintenance and service plans. For sales arrangements that contain multiple elements, we split the arrangement into separate units of accounting if the individually delivered elements have value to the customer on a standalone basis. We also evaluate whether multiple transactions with the same customer or related party should be considered part of a multiple element arrangement, whereby we assess, among other factors, whether the contracts or agreements are negotiated or executed within a short time frame of each other or if there are indicators that the contracts are negotiated in contemplation of each other. When we have separate units of accounting, we allocate revenue to each element based on the following selling price hierarchy: vendor-specific objective evidence (“VSOE”) if available; third party evidence (“TPE”) if VSOE is not available; or our best estimate of selling price (“BESP”) if neither VSOE nor TPE is available.  For the majority of the elements in our arrangements we utilize BESP. The accounting guidance for selling price hierarchy did not include BESP for arrangements entered into prior to January 1, 2011, and as such we recognized revenue for those arrangements as described below.

 

We consider many facts when evaluating each of our sales arrangements to determine the timing of revenue recognition, including the contractual obligations, the customer’s creditworthiness and the nature of the customer’s post-delivery acceptance provisions. Our system sales arrangements, including certain upgrades, generally include field acceptance provisions that may include functional or mechanical test procedures. For the majority of our arrangements, a customer source inspection of the system is performed in our facility or test data is sent to the customer documenting that the system is functioning to the agreed upon specifications prior to delivery. Historically, such source inspection or test data replicates the field acceptance provisions that will be performed at the customer’s site prior to final acceptance of the system. As such, we objectively demonstrate that the criteria specified in the contractual acceptance provisions are achieved prior to delivery and, therefore, we recognize revenue upon delivery since there is no substantive contingency remaining related to the acceptance provisions as of that date, subject to the retention amount constraint described below. For new products, new applications of existing products or for products with substantive customer acceptance provisions where we cannot objectively demonstrate that the criteria specified in the contractual acceptance provisions have been achieved prior to delivery, revenue and the associated costs are deferred and fully recognized upon the receipt of final customer acceptance, assuming all other revenue recognition criteria have been met.

 

Our system sales arrangements, including certain upgrades, generally do not contain provisions for right of return or forfeiture, refund, or other purchase price concessions.  In the rare instances where such provisions are included, we defer all revenue until such rights expire.  In many cases our products are sold with a billing retention, typically 10% of the sales price (the “retention amount”), which is typically payable by the customer when field acceptance provisions are completed.  The amount of revenue recognized upon delivery of a system or upgrade is limited to the lower of  i) the amount that is not contingent upon acceptance provisions or ii) the value allocated to the delivered elements, if such sale is part of a multiple-element arrangement.

 

For transactions entered into prior to January 1, 2011, under the accounting rules for multiple-element arrangements in place at that time, we deferred the greater of the retention amount or the relative fair value of the undelivered elements based on VSOE.  When we could not establish VSOE or TPE for all undelivered elements of an arrangement, revenue on the entire arrangement was deferred until the earlier of the point when we did have VSOE for all undelivered elements or the delivery of all elements of the arrangement.

 

Our sales arrangements, including certain upgrades, generally include installation. The installation process is not deemed essential to the functionality of the equipment since it is not complex; that is, it does not require significant changes to the features or capabilities of the equipment or involve building elaborate interfaces or connections subsequent to factory acceptance. We have a demonstrated history of consistently completing installations in a timely manner and can reliably estimate the costs of such activities. Most customers engage us to perform the installation services, although there are other third-party providers with sufficient knowledge who could complete these services. Based on these factors, we deem the installation of our systems to be inconsequential and perfunctory relative to the system as a whole, and as a result, do not consider such services to be a separate element of the arrangement. As such, we accrue the cost of the installation at the time of revenue recognition for the system.

 

In Japan, where our contractual terms with customers generally specify title and risk and rewards of ownership transfer upon customer acceptance, revenue is recognized and the customer is billed upon the receipt of written customer acceptance.

 

Revenue related to maintenance and service contracts is recognized ratably over the applicable contract term.  Component and spare part revenue are recognized at the time of delivery in accordance with the terms of the applicable sales arrangement.

 

Discontinued Operations
Discontinued Operations

Note 2 — Discontinued Operations

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2012 we had $4.1 million in income from discontinued operations, primarily consisting of the recognition of the previously deferred $5.4 million pre-tax gain in China from the sale of our Metrology business to Bruker Corporation (“Bruker”). During the nine months ended September 30, 2012 we had $4.8 million in income from discontinued operations, primarily consisting of the recognition of the previously deferred $5.4 million pre-tax gain in China from the sale of our Metrology business to Bruker and the $1.4 million pre-tax gain on sale of assets previously held for sale. There were no sales included in the results of our discontinued operations.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents include cash and certain highly liquid investments. Highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less when purchased may be classified as cash equivalents. Such items may include liquid money market accounts, treasury bills, government agency securities and corporate debt. The investments that are classified as cash equivalents are carried at cost, which approximates fair value.

As of December 31, 2012 we did not hold any short-term investments that were in a loss position. We did not hold any short-term investments that have been in an unrealized loss position for 12 months or longer for the period noted in the table above.

 

The Company regularly reviews its investment portfolio to identify and evaluate investments that have indications of possible impairment. Factors considered in determining whether an unrealized loss was considered to be temporary or other-than-temporary and therefore impaired include: the length of time and extent to which fair value has been lower than the cost basis; the financial condition and near-term prospects of the investee; and whether it is more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell the security prior to recovery. The Company believes the gross unrealized losses on the Company’s short-term investments as of September 30, 2013 were temporary in nature and therefore did not recognize any impairment.

Restricted Cash

 

As of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, restricted cash consisted of $2.9 million and $2.0 million, respectively, which serves as collateral for bank guarantees that provide financial assurance that the Company will fulfill certain customer obligations. This cash is held in custody by the issuing bank and is restricted as to withdrawal or use while the related bank guarantees are outstanding.

Cost Method Investment

 

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, we invested an additional $0.8 million and $1.6 million, respectively, into a rapidly developing organic light emitting diode (“OLED”) equipment company (the “Investment”). While Veeco is not obligated to increase amounts invested in the Investment, we may choose to do so if the opportunity arises in the future. As of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012 we have recorded a total investment of $16.1 million and $14.5 million, respectively, in the Investment. Our ownership in the Investment is approximately 15.3% of the preferred shares and a 12.0% interest in the total of the company. Since we do not exert significant influence on the Investment, this investment is accounted for under the cost method in accordance with applicable accounting guidance. The fair value of this investment is not estimated because there are no identified events or changes in circumstances that may indicate an other-than-temporary decline in the fair value of the investment, and we are exempt from estimating interim fair values because the investment does not meet the definition of a publicly traded company. This investment is recorded in other assets in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

 

Customer Deposits

 

As of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, we had customer deposits of $24.2 million and $32.7 million, respectively, which are recorded as a component of accrued expenses and other current liabilities.

 

Accrued Warranty

 

We estimate the costs that may be incurred under the warranties we provide and record a liability in the amount of such costs at the time the related revenue is recognized. Factors that affect our warranty liability include product failure rates, material usage and labor costs incurred in correcting product failures during the warranty period. This accrual is recorded in accrued expenses and other current liabilities in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.  We periodically assess the adequacy of our recognized warranty liability and adjust the amount as necessary.  Changes in our warranty liability during the period are as follows (in thousands):

In the current year’s presentation we no longer include installation in the accrued warranty balance; therefore, in order to conform the balance to current year presentation, we have reclassified $1.047 million from the beginning balance of 2012 accrued warranty to accrued installation which, along with accrued warranty, is also a component of accrued expenses and other current liabilities.

 

Mortgage Payable

 

We have a mortgage payable with approximately $2.2 million outstanding as of September 30, 2013 and $2.4 million outstanding as of December 31, 2012. The mortgage accrues interest at an annual rate of 7.91%, and the final payment is due on January 1, 2020. We estimate the fair value of the mortgage as of September 30, 2013 was approximately $2.4 million and $2.6 million as of December 31, 2012.

Segment Information
Segment Information

Note 4—Segment Information

 

We manage the business, review operating results and assess performance, as well as allocate resources, based upon four reporting units that are aggregated into two segments: the VIBE and Mechanical reporting units which are reported in our Data Storage segment; and the MOCVD and molecular beam epitaxy (“MBE”) reporting units which are reported in our Light Emitting Diode (“LED”) and Solar segment. In identifying the reporting units, management considered the economic characteristics of operating segments including the products and services provided, production processes, types or classes of customer and product distribution.  Our LED & Solar segment consists of MOCVD systems, MBE systems and thermal deposition sources. These systems are primarily sold to customers in the LED, wireless devices and solar industries, as well as to scientific research customers. This segment has manufacturing, product development and marketing sites in Somerset, New Jersey; Poughkeepsie, New York; and St. Paul, Minnesota. Our Data Storage segment consists of the ion beam etch, ion beam deposition, diamond-like carbon, physical vapor deposition and dicing and slicing products sold primarily to customers in the data storage industry. This segment has manufacturing, product development and marketing sites in Plainview, New York; Camarillo, California; and Ft. Collins, Colorado.

 

We evaluate the performance of our reportable segments based on income (loss) from continuing operations before interest, income taxes, amortization and certain items (in the aggregate “segment profit (loss)”), which is the primary indicator used to plan and forecast future periods. The presentation of this financial measure facilitates meaningful comparison with prior periods, as management believes segment profit (loss) reports baseline performance and thus provides useful information. Certain items include restructuring charges and equity-based compensation expense. The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those described in the summary of critical accounting policies.

 

The following tables present certain data pertaining to our reportable segments and a reconciliation of segment (loss) profit to (loss) income from continuing operations before income taxes for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and goodwill and total assets as of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012 (in thousands):

Fair Value Measurements
Fair Value Measurements

Note 5— Fair Value Measurements

 

We have categorized our assets and liabilities recorded at fair value based upon the fair value hierarchy. The levels of fair value hierarchy are as follows:

 

·                  Level 1 inputs utilize quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that we have the ability to access.

·                  Level 2 inputs utilize other-than-quoted prices that are observable, either directly or indirectly. Level 2 inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs such as interest rates and yield curves that are observable at commonly quoted intervals.

·                  Level 3 inputs are unobservable and are typically based on our own assumptions, including situations where there is little, if any, market activity.

 

In certain cases, the inputs used to measure fair value may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In such cases, we categorize such assets or liabilities based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. Our assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment and considers factors specific to the asset.

 

Both observable and unobservable inputs may be used to determine the fair value of positions that are classified within the Level 3 category. As a result, the unrealized gains and losses for assets within the Level 3 category may include changes in fair value that were attributable to both observable (e.g., changes in market interest rates) and unobservable (e.g., changes in historical company data) inputs.

 

The major categories of assets and liabilities measured on a recurring basis, at fair value, as of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, are as follows (in thousands):

Consistent with Level 1 measurement principles, treasury bills and treasury notes are priced using active market prices of identical securities. Consistent with Level 2 measurement principles, commercial paper, corporate bonds and government agency securities are priced with matrix pricing.

 

Government agency securities and treasury bills that are classified as cash equivalents are carried at cost, which approximates market value. Accordingly, no gains or losses (realized/unrealized) have been incurred for cash equivalents. All investments classified as available-for-sale are recorded at fair value within short-term investments in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

 

In determining the fair value of its investments and levels, the Company uses pricing information from pricing services that value securities based on quoted market prices in active markets and matrix pricing. Matrix pricing is a mathematical valuation technique that does not rely exclusively on quoted prices of specific investments, but on the investment’s relationship to other benchmarked quoted securities. The Company has a review process in place for investment valuations to facilitate identification and resolution of potentially erroneous prices. The Company reviews the information provided by the third-party service provider to record the fair value of its portfolio.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments
Derivative Financial Instruments

Note 6 — Derivative Financial Instruments

 

We use derivative financial instruments to minimize the impact of foreign currency exchange rate changes on earnings and cash flows. In the normal course of business, our operations are exposed to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. In order to reduce the effect of fluctuating foreign currencies on short-term foreign currency-denominated intercompany transactions and other known foreign currency exposures, we enter into monthly forward contracts. We do not use derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes. Our forward contracts are not expected to subject us to material risks due to exchange rate movements because gains and losses on these contracts are intended to offset exchange gains and losses on the underlying assets and liabilities. We have not designated these economic hedges as accounting hedges pursuant to the accounting guidance. The forward contracts are marked-to-market through earnings. We conduct our derivative transactions with highly rated financial institutions in an effort to mitigate any material counterparty risk. We estimate the fair value of these derivative instruments consistent with Level 2 measurement principles (see Note 5 - Fair Value Measurements) as follows (in thousands):

Note 8— Subsequent Events

 

Acquisition of Synos Technology, Inc. (“Synos”): On October 1, 2013, we acquired Synos, which designs and manufactures Fast Array Scanning™ Atomic Layer Deposition systems (“ALD”) that are enabling the production of flexible organic light-emitting diode (“OLED”) displays for mobile devices. The initial purchase price is $70 million. The agreement also includes an earn-out feature that would require an additional payment of up to $115 million if future performance milestones are achieved prior to December 31, 2014. With the earn-out feature, the total maximum potential purchase price is $185 million. Synos is headquartered in Fremont, California and has approximately 50 employees. Preliminary purchase accounting allocations for Synos are not yet available.

 

Basis of Presentation (Policies)

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates made by management include: the best estimate of selling price for our products and services; allowance for doubtful accounts; inventory valuation; recoverability and useful lives of property, plant and equipment and identifiable intangible assets; investment valuations; fair value of derivatives; recoverability of goodwill and long-lived assets; recoverability of deferred tax assets; liabilities for product warranty; accruals for contingencies; equity-based payments, including forfeitures and performance based vesting; and liabilities for tax uncertainties. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Basic (loss) income per common share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted (loss) income per common share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares and common equivalent shares outstanding during the period, as adjusted. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, we reported net losses applicable to common shareholders, and accordingly, the basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding are equal because any increase to basic weighted average shares outstanding would be antidilutive. This resulted in our excluding from the computation 0.6 million common equivalent shares that would have otherwise been dilutive for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

 

Additionally, not included above, were additional stock options and restricted stock outstanding that had exercise or grant prices in excess of the average market value of our common stock during the period and are therefore antidilutive. There were 1.0 million and 1.1 million such underlying shares for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively. There were 1.1 million and 1.2 million such underlying shares for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

We recognize revenue when all of the following criteria have been met: persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists with a customer; delivery of the specified products has occurred or services have been rendered; prices are contractually fixed or determinable; and collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue is recorded including shipping and handling costs and excluding applicable taxes related to sales. A significant portion of our revenue is derived from contractual arrangements with customers that have multiple elements, such as systems, upgrades, components, spare parts, maintenance and service plans. For sales arrangements that contain multiple elements, we split the arrangement into separate units of accounting if the individually delivered elements have value to the customer on a standalone basis. We also evaluate whether multiple transactions with the same customer or related party should be considered part of a multiple element arrangement, whereby we assess, among other factors, whether the contracts or agreements are negotiated or executed within a short time frame of each other or if there are indicators that the contracts are negotiated in contemplation of each other. When we have separate units of accounting, we allocate revenue to each element based on the following selling price hierarchy: vendor-specific objective evidence (“VSOE”) if available; third party evidence (“TPE”) if VSOE is not available; or our best estimate of selling price (“BESP”) if neither VSOE nor TPE is available.  For the majority of the elements in our arrangements we utilize BESP. The accounting guidance for selling price hierarchy did not include BESP for arrangements entered into prior to January 1, 2011, and as such we recognized revenue for those arrangements as described below.

 

We consider many facts when evaluating each of our sales arrangements to determine the timing of revenue recognition, including the contractual obligations, the customer’s creditworthiness and the nature of the customer’s post-delivery acceptance provisions. Our system sales arrangements, including certain upgrades, generally include field acceptance provisions that may include functional or mechanical test procedures. For the majority of our arrangements, a customer source inspection of the system is performed in our facility or test data is sent to the customer documenting that the system is functioning to the agreed upon specifications prior to delivery. Historically, such source inspection or test data replicates the field acceptance provisions that will be performed at the customer’s site prior to final acceptance of the system. As such, we objectively demonstrate that the criteria specified in the contractual acceptance provisions are achieved prior to delivery and, therefore, we recognize revenue upon delivery since there is no substantive contingency remaining related to the acceptance provisions as of that date, subject to the retention amount constraint described below. For new products, new applications of existing products or for products with substantive customer acceptance provisions where we cannot objectively demonstrate that the criteria specified in the contractual acceptance provisions have been achieved prior to delivery, revenue and the associated costs are deferred and fully recognized upon the receipt of final customer acceptance, assuming all other revenue recognition criteria have been met.

 

Our system sales arrangements, including certain upgrades, generally do not contain provisions for right of return or forfeiture, refund, or other purchase price concessions.  In the rare instances where such provisions are included, we defer all revenue until such rights expire.  In many cases our products are sold with a billing retention, typically 10% of the sales price (the “retention amount”), which is typically payable by the customer when field acceptance provisions are completed.  The amount of revenue recognized upon delivery of a system or upgrade is limited to the lower of  i) the amount that is not contingent upon acceptance provisions or ii) the value allocated to the delivered elements, if such sale is part of a multiple-element arrangement.

 

For transactions entered into prior to January 1, 2011, under the accounting rules for multiple-element arrangements in place at that time, we deferred the greater of the retention amount or the relative fair value of the undelivered elements based on VSOE.  When we could not establish VSOE or TPE for all undelivered elements of an arrangement, revenue on the entire arrangement was deferred until the earlier of the point when we did have VSOE for all undelivered elements or the delivery of all elements of the arrangement.

 

Our sales arrangements, including certain upgrades, generally include installation. The installation process is not deemed essential to the functionality of the equipment since it is not complex; that is, it does not require significant changes to the features or capabilities of the equipment or involve building elaborate interfaces or connections subsequent to factory acceptance. We have a demonstrated history of consistently completing installations in a timely manner and can reliably estimate the costs of such activities. Most customers engage us to perform the installation services, although there are other third-party providers with sufficient knowledge who could complete these services. Based on these factors, we deem the installation of our systems to be inconsequential and perfunctory relative to the system as a whole, and as a result, do not consider such services to be a separate element of the arrangement. As such, we accrue the cost of the installation at the time of revenue recognition for the system.

 

In Japan, where our contractual terms with customers generally specify title and risk and rewards of ownership transfer upon customer acceptance, revenue is recognized and the customer is billed upon the receipt of written customer acceptance.

 

Revenue related to maintenance and service contracts is recognized ratably over the applicable contract term.  Component and spare part revenue are recognized at the time of delivery in accordance with the terms of the applicable sales arrangement.
