Management Comments

"We continue to outperform and solidify Nova's competitive position in the market by offering an innovative and unique portfolio of metrology solutions to a growing addressable market," commented Eitan Oppenhaim, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nova.

Our second quarter revenue and profitability both exceeded our guidance range, supported by an increasingly diverse customer base with five 10%-plus customers from both the Foundry and Memory segments."

"We delivered significant growth during the first half of 2017, demonstrating the value and efficiency embedded into our business model, which allows us to continue investing in our next-generation products and to pursue our strategic targets," added Mr. Oppenhaim. "The results in the first half of 2017 suggest that we are well on pace for another significant growth year, while our strong cash reserves provide ample resources to further expand our market position."

This press release provides financial measures that exclude charges for amortization of acquired intangible assets, net adjustment of deferred tax assets and stock-based compensation expenses and are therefore not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Nova's performance because they reflect our operational results and enhances management's and investors' ability to evaluate Nova's performance before charges or benefits considered by management to be outside Nova's ongoing operating results. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that it is in the best interest of its investors to provide financial information that will facilitate comparison of both historical and future results and allows greater transparency to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making. A reconciliation of each GAAP to non-GAAP financial measure discussed in this press release is contained in the accompanying financial tables.
