Zygo Corp. (ZIGO) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2012-12-31.

Zygo Corporation has a market cap of $284.6 million; its shares were traded at around $15.37 with a P/E ratio of 7.6 and P/S ratio of 1.8.

Highlight of Business Operations:

Net revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2012 decreased $5.4 million, or 14%, compared with the prior year period, reflecting decreases in the Metrology Solutions segment revenues of 16% and in the Optical Systems segment of 9%. The decrease in the Metrology Solutions segment was primarily due to volume decreases of $3.0 million in instruments product lines related to microscopes and, to a lesser degree, large aperture systems and $0.8 million in certain product revenues attributable to soft demand in the semiconductor sector. The decrease in the Optical Systems segment was primarily due to volume decreases in optical components of $1.6 million and contract manufacturing of $0.3 million, partially offset by an increase in the extreme precision optics group of $0.5 million.

Net revenues for the six months ended December 31, 2012 decreased $9.2 million, or 11%, compared with the prior year period, reflecting decreases in the Metrology Solutions segment revenues of 15% and in the Optical Systems segment of 4%. The decrease in the Metrology Solutions segment of $8.0 million was primarily due to volume decreases in semiconductor related products of $5.6 million and instruments products of $3.1 million. The semiconductor market is still slow and has affected orders across several product lines. The Optical Systems segment declined $1.2 million year over year with increases in extreme precision optics of $3.7 million partially offsetting the declines in contract manufacturing and laser fusion optics.

Revenues from two customers accounted for 14% and 11% of net revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2011. No customer accounted for over 10% of revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2012. Revenues from one customer accounted for 10% of net revenues for the six months ended December 31, 2012. Revenues from two customers accounted for 12% and 11% of net revenues for the six months ended December 31, 2011. Revenues from these customers were included in both reporting segments.

Revenues denominated in U.S. dollars for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 were 76% and 79%, respectively, and 78% and 82% for the six months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The balance of revenue was denominated in Euro, Yen and Yuan. Revenues denominated in foreign currency are exposed to foreign exchange fluctuations from the time customers are invoiced in foreign currency until collection occurs. Significant changes in the values of foreign currencies relative to the value of the U.S. dollar, or in the general economic conditions in our export markets, could materially impact the revenues in these markets and our consolidated financial position and results of operations.

Revenues from Canon Inc., a shareholder, and Canon Sales Co., Inc., a distributor of certain of our products in Japan and a subsidiary of Canon Inc. (collectively referred to as Canon), amounted to $2.9 million and $4.3 million (8% and 11% of net revenues, respectively) for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. For the six months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, revenues from Canon amounted to $5.7 million and $9.1 million (8% and 11% of net revenues, respectively). Selling prices of products sold to Canon are based, generally, on the terms customarily given to distributors. At December 31, 2012 and June 30, 2012, there were, in the aggregate, $1.2 million and $1.6 million, respectively, of trade accounts receivable from Canon.
