12:39 EDTKLACEarnings Preview: KLA-Tencor's Q1 could come in towards low-end of guidance
KLA-Tencor (KLAC) is expected to report Q1 earnings after the market close on Thursday, October 25, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. The consensus estimate is 89c for EPS and $739.97M for revenue, according to First Call. Guidance provided by management on the last earnings call was for EPS 75c-95c on revenue $700-$760M, consensus $829.89M. Bookings for Q1 were guided to $625M- $775M. Piper Jaffray expect the company to report Q1 revenues and EPS in-line, but at the lower end of its guidance. The firm also believes bookings could be biased more to the bottom end, as Piper thinks orders declined across all segments -- given weakness in memory spend and a seasonally slow quarter. However, Piper does expect more than 90% of KLA's September orders to come from foundry and logic customers for 28nm/32nm activity. The firm sees KLA also benefiting from Intel's (INTC) last leg of 22nm spending. Piper estimates gross margins to trend down 250bps quarter-over-quarter to 57% on lower revenues. Although KLA could articulate that bookings could resume in the December quarter, Piper expects recovery to be weak with 28nm foundry off to a slow start -- while modest spending by Intel prevails. However, NAND and DRAM orders remain in hibernation.

06:37 EDTKLACKLA-Tencor to recognize $26M-$36M in costs related to workforce reduction
KLA-Tencor currently estimates that, in connection with the global employee workforce reduction plan, it will recognize net charges in the range of approximately $26M-$36M for estimated severance costs and other related costs. Substantially all of these net charges are expected to be cash expenditures. The company expects to recognize a majority of these charges in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. On April 23, 2015, the company announced a plan to reduce its global employee workforce by up to 10% to streamline its organization and business processes in response to changing customer requirements in its industry. The goal of this reduction is to enable continued innovation and direct the company’s resources toward its best opportunities. The company expects to substantially complete the employee reduction by the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2016, but certain reductions will occur in the second quarter of fiscal year 2016.
