NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

A. The Company

Teradyne, Inc. (“Teradyne”) is a leading global supplier of automation equipment for test and industrial applications. Teradyne’s automatic test equipment and industrial automation products and services include:

 

    semiconductor test (“Semiconductor Test”) systems;

 

    wireless test (“Wireless Test”) systems;

 

    defense/aerospace (“Defense/Aerospace”) test instrumentation and systems, storage test (“Storage Test”) systems, and circuit-board test and inspection (“Production Board Test”) systems (collectively these products represent “System Test”); and

 

    industrial automation (“Industrial Automation”) products include collaborative robots used by global manufacturing and light industrial customers to improve quality and increase manufacturing efficiency.

On June 11, 2015, Teradyne acquired Universal Robots A/S (“Universal Robots”) for approximately $284 million of cash plus up to an additional $65 million of cash if certain performance targets are met extending through 2018. Universal Robots is the leading supplier of collaborative robots which are low-cost, easy-to-deploy and simple-to-program robots that work side by side with production workers to improve quality and increase manufacturing efficiency.

B. Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

The consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of Teradyne and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. These interim financial statements are unaudited and reflect all normal recurring adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for the fair presentation of such interim financial statements. Certain prior year amounts were reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. The December 31, 2014 condensed consolidated balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The accompanying financial information should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contained in Teradyne’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 27, 2015, for the year ended December 31, 2014.

Preparation of Financial Statements and Use of Estimates

The preparation of consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements. Actual results may differ significantly from these estimates.

Revenue Recognition

Teradyne recognizes revenue when there is persuasive evidence of an arrangement, title and risk of loss have passed, delivery has occurred or the services have been rendered, the sales price is fixed or determinable and collection of the related receivable is reasonably assured. Title and risk of loss generally pass to Teradyne’s

Table of Contents

customers upon shipment or at delivery destination point. In circumstances where either title or risk of loss pass upon destination, acceptance or cash payment, Teradyne defers revenue recognition until such events occur except when title transfer is tied to cash payment outside the United States. Outside the United States, Teradyne recognizes revenue upon shipment or at delivery destination point, even if Teradyne retains a form of title to products delivered to customers, provided the sole purpose is to enable Teradyne to recover the products in the event of customer payment default and the arrangement does not prohibit the customer’s use or resale of the product in the ordinary course of business.

Teradyne’s equipment has non-software and software components that function together to deliver the equipment’s essential functionality. Revenue is recognized upon shipment or at delivery destination point, provided that customer acceptance criteria can be demonstrated prior to shipment. Certain contracts require Teradyne to perform tests of the product to ensure that performance meets the published product specifications or customer requested specifications, which are generally conducted prior to shipment. Where the criteria cannot be demonstrated prior to shipment, revenue is deferred until customer acceptance has been received. Teradyne also defers the portion of the sales price that is not due until acceptance, which represents deferred profit.

For multiple element arrangements, Teradyne allocates revenue to all deliverables based on their relative selling prices. In such circumstances, a hierarchy is used to determine the selling price for allocating revenue to deliverables as follows: (i) vendor-specific objective evidence of selling price (“VSOE”), (ii) third-party evidence of selling price (“TPE”), and (iii) best estimate of the selling price (“BESP”). For a delivered item to be considered a separate unit the delivered item must have value to the customer on a standalone basis and the delivery or performance of the undelivered item must be considered probable and substantially in Teradyne’s control.

Teradyne’s post-shipment obligations include installation, training services, one-year standard warranties, and extended warranties. Installation does not alter the product capabilities, does not require specialized skills or tools and can be performed by the customers or other vendors. Installation is typically provided within five days of product shipment and is completed within one to two days thereafter. Training services are optional and do not affect the customers’ ability to use the product. Teradyne defers revenue for the selling price of installation and training. Extended warranties constitute warranty obligations beyond one year and Teradyne defers revenue in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 605-20, “Separately Priced Extended Warranty and Product Maintenance Contracts” and ASC 605-25, “Revenue Recognition Multiple-Element Arrangements.” Service revenue is recognized over the contractual period or as services are performed.

Teradyne’s products are generally subject to warranty and related costs of the warranty are provided for in cost of revenue when product revenue is recognized. Teradyne classifies shipping and handling costs in cost of revenue. Teradyne generally does not provide its customers with contractual rights of return for any of its products.

Translation of Non-U.S. Currencies

The functional currency for all non-U.S. subsidiaries is the U.S. dollar, except for the Industrial Automation segment for which the local currency is its functional currency. All foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities are remeasured on a monthly basis into the functional currency using exchange rates in effect at the end of the period. All foreign currency denominated non-monetary assets and liabilities are remeasured into the functional currency using historical exchange rates. Net foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from remeasurement are included in other (income) expense, net. For Industrial Automation, assets and liabilities are translated into U.S. dollars using exchange rates in effect at the end of the period. Revenue and expense amounts are translated using an average of exchange rates in effect during the period. Translation adjustments are recorded within accumulated other comprehensive income (loss).

C. Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In September 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) 2015-16, “Business Combinations (Topic 805)—Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments . ASU 2015-16 requires that an acquirer recognize adjustments to provisional amounts that are identified during the measurement period in the reporting period in which the adjustments are identified, including the cumulative effect of the change in provisional amount as if the accounting had been completed at the acquisition date. ASU 2015-16 is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2015 and is applied prospectively. Early adoption is permitted. Teradyne early adopted this ASU in the three months ended October 4, 2015. Adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on Teradyne’s financial position and results of operations.

On April 7, 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03, “Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs,” which requires debt issuance costs to be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying value of the associated debt liability, consistent with the presentation for debt discount. ASU 2015-03 does not specifically address requirements for the presentation or subsequent measurement of debt issuance costs related to line-of-credit arrangements. On August 8, 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-15, “Interest—Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30)” clarifying that debt issuance costs related to line-of-credit arrangements could be presented as an asset and amortized over the term of the line-of-credit arrangement, regardless of whether there are any outstanding borrowings on the line-of-credit arrangement. For Teradyne, the standard is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within those years. This ASU is expected to have no impact on Teradyne’s financial position and results of operations.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606),” which will replace numerous requirements in U.S. GAAP, including industry-specific requirements, and provide companies with a single revenue recognition model for recognizing revenue from contracts with customers. The core principle of the new standard is that a company should recognize revenue to show the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. In August 2015 FASB issued ASU 2015-14, which deferred the effective date of the new revenue standard by 1 year. For Teradyne, the standard will be effective in the first quarter of 2018. Early adoption is permitted but not before the original effective date (that is, annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016). The two permitted transition methods under the new standard are the full retrospective method, in which case the standard would be applied to each prior reporting period presented, or the modified retrospective method, in which case the cumulative effect of applying the standard would be recognized at the date of initial application. Teradyne has not yet selected a transition method. Teradyne is currently evaluating the impact of this ASU on its financial position and results of operations.

D. Acquisitions

Universal Robots

On June 11, 2015, Teradyne acquired all of the outstanding equity of Universal Robots located in Odense, Denmark. Universal Robots is the leading supplier of collaborative robots which are low-cost, easy-to-deploy and simple-to-program robots that work side by side with production workers to improve quality and increase manufacturing efficiency. Universal Robots is a separate operating and reportable segment, Industrial Automation.

The total purchase price of $317.7 million consisted of $283.9 million of cash paid and $33.8 million of contingent consideration, measured at fair value. The contingent consideration is payable upon the achievement of certain thresholds and targets for earnings before income taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) for calendar year 2015, revenue for the period from July 1, 2015 to December 31, 2017 and revenue for the period from July 1, 2015 to December 31, 2018. The maximum amount of contingent consideration that could be paid is $65 million.

Table of Contents

The valuation of the contingent consideration utilized the following assumptions: (1) probability of meeting each target; (2) expected timing of meeting each target; and (3) discount rate reflecting the risk associated with the expected payments. The probabilities and timing for each target were estimated based on a review of the historical and projected results. Discount rates of 6 percent, 8 percent and 10 percent, respectively, were based on corporate bond yields adjusted for the level of difficulty to achieve and the term of the earn out payment. A significant portion of the risk in achieving the contingent consideration was captured in the probabilities assigned to meeting each target.

The Universal Robots acquisition was accounted for as a business combination and, accordingly, the results have been included in Teradyne’s consolidated results of operations from the date of acquisition. The allocation of the total purchase price to Universal Robots’ net tangible liabilities and identifiable intangible assets was based on their estimated fair values as of the acquisition date. The excess of the purchase price over the identifiable intangible assets and net tangible liabilities in the amount of $227.0 million was allocated to goodwill, which is not deductible for tax purposes. The purchase price allocation is preliminary pending the final determination of the fair value of contingent consideration, acquired assets and assumed liabilities. Teradyne expects to finalize the purchase price calculation in the fourth quarter of 2015.

The following table represents the preliminary allocation of the purchase price:

 

     Purchase Price Allocation

Teradyne estimated the fair value of intangible assets using the income and cost approaches. Acquired intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives. Components of these intangible assets and their estimated useful lives at the acquisition date are as follows:

 

     Fair Value      Estimated Useful

Total intangible assets

   $ 119,950         5.6   
  

 

 

    

For the three months ended October 4, 2015, Universal Robots contributed $16.1 million of revenues and had a $(4.8) million loss from operations before income taxes.

For the period from June 12, 2015 to October 4, 2015, Universal Robots contributed $19.8 million of revenues and had a $(6.5) million loss from operations before income taxes.

Avionics Interface Technologies, LLC.

On October 31, 2014, Teradyne acquired substantially all of the assets and liabilities of Avionics Interface Technologies, LLC (“AIT”) located in Omaha, Nebraska. AIT is a supplier of equipment for testing state-of-the-art data communication buses. The acquisition of AIT complements Teradyne’s Defense/Aerospace line of bus test instrumentation for commercial and defense avionics systems. AIT is included in Teradyne’s System Test segment.

The total purchase price of $21.2 million consisted of $19.4 million of cash paid and $1.8 million of contingent consideration, measured at fair value. The contingent consideration is payable upon achievement of certain revenue and gross margin targets in 2015 and 2016. The maximum amount of contingent consideration that could be paid is $2.1 million.

The valuation of the contingent consideration utilized the following assumptions: (1) probability of meeting each target; (2) expected timing of meeting each target; and (3) discount rate reflecting the risk associated with the expected payments. The probabilities and timing for each target were estimated based on a review of the historical and projected results. A discount rate of 4.7 percent was selected based on the estimated cost of debt for the business. A significant portion of the risk in achieving the contingent consideration was captured in the probabilities assigned to meeting each target.

In the three and nine months ended October 4, 2015, the fair value of contingent consideration for the earn-out in connection with the acquisition of AIT was reduced by $1.0 million due to a decrease in the revenue probabilities in the periods of 2015 and 2016.

The AIT acquisition was accounted for as a business combination and, accordingly, the results have been included in Teradyne’s consolidated results of operations from the date of acquisition. The allocation of the total purchase price to AIT’s net tangible and identifiable intangible assets was based on their estimated fair values as of the acquisition date. The excess of the purchase price over the identifiable intangible and net tangible assets in the amount of $10.5 million was allocated to goodwill, which is deductible for tax purposes.

E. Financial Instruments and Derivatives

Cash Equivalents

Teradyne considers all highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less at the date of acquisition to be cash equivalents.

Marketable Securities

Teradyne accounts for its investments in debt and equity securities in accordance with the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 320-10, “ Investments—Debt and Equity Securities. ” ASC 320-10 requires that certain debt and equity securities be classified into one of three categories; trading, available-for-sale or held-to-maturity securities. As of October 4, 2015, Teradyne’s investments in debt and equity securities were classified as available-for-sale and recorded at their fair market value.

On a quarterly basis, Teradyne reviews its investments to identify and evaluate those that have an indication of a potential other-than-temporary impairment. Factors considered in determining whether a loss is other-than-temporary include:

 

    The length of time and the extent to which the market value has been less than cost;

 

    The financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer; and

 

    The intent and ability to retain the investment in the issuer for a period of time sufficient to allow for any anticipated recovery in market value.

Table of Contents

Teradyne uses the market and income approach techniques to value its financial instruments and there were no changes in valuation techniques during the three and nine months ended October 4, 2015. As defined in ASC 820-10 “ Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, ” fair value is the price that would be received from the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. ASC 820-10 requires that assets and liabilities carried at fair value be classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:

Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets as of the reporting date.

Level 2: Inputs other than Level 1, that are observable either directly or indirectly as of the reporting date. For example, a common approach for valuing fixed income securities is the use of matrix pricing. Matrix pricing is a mathematical technique used to value securities by relying on the securities’ relationship to other benchmark quoted prices, and is considered a Level 2 input.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are not supported by market data. Unobservable inputs are developed based on the best information available, which might include Teradyne’s own data.

Teradyne’s available-for-sale fixed income securities are classified as Level 2. Contingent consideration is classified as Level 3. The vast majority of Level 2 securities are priced by third party pricing vendors. These pricing vendors utilize the most recent observable market information in pricing these securities or, if specific prices are not available, use other observable inputs like market transactions involving identical or comparable securities.

Realized losses recorded in the nine months ended October 4, 2015 were $0.2 million. There were no realized losses recorded in the three and nine months ended September 28, 2014. Realized gains recorded in the three and nine months ended October 4, 2015 were $0.4 million and $1.4 million, respectively. Realized gains recorded in the three and nine months ended September 28, 2014 were $1.0 million and $1.7 million, respectively. Realized gains are included in interest income and realized losses are included in interest expense. Unrealized gains and losses are included in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss). The cost of securities sold is based on the specific identification method.

During the nine months ended October 4, 2015 and September 28, 2014, there were no transfers in or out of Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 financial instruments.

(a) In the three and nine months ended October 4, 2015, the fair value of contingent consideration for the earn-out in connection with the acquisition of AIT was reduced by $1.0 million due to a decrease in the revenue probabilities in the periods of 2015 and 2016.
(b) In the nine months ended October 4, 2015, the fair value measurement of the contingent consideration for the earn-out in connection with the acquisition of ZTEC Instruments, Inc. was reduced by $1.6 million, to $0, because Teradyne and the Securityholder Representative, on behalf of the ZTEC securityholders, agreed to terminate the earn-out prior to the end of the December 31, 2015 earn-out period, with no payout in connection with the resolution of indemnity claims asserted by both Teradyne and the Securityholder Representative.

The significant unobservable inputs used in the Universal Robots fair value measurement of contingent consideration are the probabilities of successful achievement of revenue thresholds and targets in the periods July 1, 2015—December 31, 2017 and July 1, 2015—December 31, 2018 and EBITDA threshold and target for calendar year 2015, and respective discount rates. Increases or decreases in the revenue and EBITDA probabilities and the period in which results will be achieved would result in a higher or lower fair value measurement. The maximum amount of contingent consideration in connection with the acquisition of Universal Robots that could be paid is $65 million. The earn-out periods in connection with the Universal Robots acquisition end on December 31, 2015, December 31, 2017 and December 31, 2018.

The significant unobservable inputs used in the AIT fair value measurement of contingent consideration are the probabilities of successful achievement of calendar year 2015 and 2016 revenue thresholds and targets, and a discount rate. Increases or decreases in the revenue probabilities and the period in which results will be achieved

would result in a higher or lower fair value measurement. The maximum amount of contingent consideration in connection with the acquisition of AIT that could be paid is $2.1 million. The earn-out periods in connection with the AIT acquisition end on December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2016.

In the three and nine months ended October 4, 2015, the fair value of contingent consideration for the earn-out in connection with the acquisition of AIT was reduced by $1.0 million due to a decrease in the revenue probabilities in the periods of 2015 and 2016.

Derivatives

Teradyne conducts business in a number of foreign countries, with certain transactions denominated in local currencies. The purpose of Teradyne’s foreign currency management is to minimize the effect of exchange rate fluctuations on certain foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities. Teradyne does not use derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes.

To minimize the effect of exchange rate fluctuations associated with the remeasurement of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies, Teradyne enters into foreign currency forward contracts. The change in fair value of these derivatives is recorded directly in earnings, and is used to offset the change in value of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies.

The notional amount of foreign currency forward contracts was $91.5 million and $73.0 million at October 4, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively. The fair value of the outstanding contracts was $0.0 million and a loss of $0.1 million at October 4, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively.

In the three and nine months ended October 4, 2015, Teradyne recorded a net realized loss of $0.8 million and $2.7 million, respectively, related to foreign currency forward contracts hedging net monetary positions.

In the three months ended September 28, 2014, Teradyne recorded a net realized gain of $0.2 million related to foreign currency forward contracts hedging net monetary positions. In the nine months ended September 28, 2014, Teradyne recorded a net realized loss of $1.6 million related to foreign currency forward contracts hedging net monetary positions. Gains and losses on foreign currency forward contracts and foreign currency remeasurement gains and losses on monetary assets and liabilities are included in other (income) expense, net.

F. Debt

Revolving Credit Facility

On April 27, 2015, Teradyne entered into a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with Barclays Bank PLC, as administrative agent and collateral agent, and the lenders party thereto. The Credit Agreement provides for a five-year, senior secured revolving credit facility of $350 million (the “Credit Facility”). The Credit Agreement further provides that, subject to customary conditions, Teradyne may seek to obtain from existing or new lenders incremental commitments under the Credit Facility in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $150.0 million.

Proceeds from the Credit Facility may be used for general corporate purposes and working capital. Teradyne incurred $2.3 million in costs related to the revolving credit facility. These costs are being amortized over the five year term of the revolving credit facility and are included in interest expense in the statement of operations. As of November 13, 2015, Teradyne has not borrowed any funds under the Credit Facility.

The interest rates applicable to loans under the Credit Facility are, at Teradyne’s option, equal to either a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.00% to 1.00% per annum or LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.00% to 2.00% per annum, based on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio of Teradyne and its Restricted Subsidiaries. In addition, Teradyne will pay a commitment fee on the unused portion of the commitments under the Credit Facility ranging from 0.125% to 0.350% per annum, based on the then applicable Consolidated Leverage Ratio.

Teradyne is not required to repay any loans under the Credit Facility prior to maturity, subject to certain customary exceptions. Teradyne is permitted to prepay all or any portion of the loans under the Credit Facility prior to maturity without premium or penalty, other than customary LIBOR breakage costs.

The Credit Agreement contains customary events of default, representations, warranties and affirmative and negative covenants that, among other things, limit Teradyne’s and its Restricted Subsidiaries’ ability to sell assets, grant liens on assets, incur other secured indebtedness and make certain investments and restricted payments, all subject to exceptions set forth in the Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement also requires Teradyne to satisfy two financial ratios measured as of the end of each fiscal quarter: a consolidated leverage ratio and an interest coverage ratio. As of October 4, 2015, Teradyne was in compliance with all covenants.

The Credit Facility is guaranteed by certain of Teradyne’s domestic subsidiaries and collateralized by assets of Teradyne and such subsidiaries, including a pledge of 65% of the capital stock of certain foreign subsidiaries.

Convertible Senior Notes

On March 31, 2009, Teradyne entered into an underwriting agreement regarding a public offering of $175.0 million aggregate principal amount of 4.50% convertible senior notes due March 15, 2014 (the “Notes”). On April 1, 2009, the underwriters exercised their option to purchase an additional $15.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes for a total aggregate principal amount of $190.0 million. The Notes bore interest at a rate of 4.50% per annum, payable semiannually in arrears on March 15 and September 15 of each year, beginning on September 15, 2009. The Notes had a maturity date of March 15, 2014. Substantially all of the Notes were converted prior to March 15, 2014 and were “net share settled,” meaning that the holders received, for each $1,000 in principal amount of Notes, $1,000 in cash and approximately 131.95 shares of Teradyne common stock (calculated by taking 182.65 shares, being the fixed number specified in the Notes purchase agreement, less 50.7 shares). The 50.7 shares were determined, as specified in the Notes purchase agreement, by dividing the $1,000 principal amount by the $19.74 average trading price of Teradyne’s common stock over the 25 day trading period from February 5, 2014 to March 12, 2014.

Table of Contents

Teradyne satisfied the Notes “net share settlement” by paying the aggregate principal amount of $190 million in cash and issuing 25.1 million shares of common stock. On March 13, 2014, Teradyne exercised its call option agreement entered into with Goldman, Sachs & Co. (the “hedge counterparty”) at the time of issuance of the Notes and received 25.1 million shares of Teradyne’s common stock, which Teradyne retired.

From June 17, 2014 to September 17, 2014, the hedge counterparty exercised its warrant agreement entered into with Teradyne at the time of issuance of the Notes. The warrants were net share settled. In 2014, Teradyne issued 21.2 million shares of its common stock for warrants exercised at a weighted average strike price of $7.6348 per share.

The interest expense on Teradyne’s convertible senior notes for the nine months ended October 4, 2015 and September 28, 2014 was as follows:

J. Stock-Based Compensation

Teradyne grants performance-based restricted stock units (“PRSUs”) to its executive officers with a performance metric based on relative total shareholder return (“TSR”). Teradyne’s three-year TSR performance will be measured against the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index, which consists of thirty companies in the semiconductor device and capital equipment industries. The final number of TSR PRSUs that vest will vary based upon the level of performance achieved from 200% of the target shares to 0% of the target shares. The TSR PRSUs will vest upon the three-year anniversary of the grant date. Beginning with PRSUs granted in January 2014, if the recipient’s employment ends prior to the determination of the performance percentage due to (1) permanent disability or death or (2) retirement or termination other than for cause, after attaining both at least age sixty and at least ten years of service, then all or a portion of the recipient’s PRSUs (based on the actual performance percentage achieved on the determination date) will vest on the date the performance percentage is determined. Except as set forth in the preceding sentence, no TSR PRSUs will vest if the executive officer is no longer an employee at the end of the three-year period.

The TSR PRSUs are valued using a Monte Carlo simulation model. The number of units expected to be earned, based upon the achievement of the TSR market condition, is factored into the grant date Monte Carlo valuation. Compensation expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the three-year service period. Compensation expense is recognized regardless of the eventual number of units that are earned based upon the

market condition, provided the executive officer remains an employee at the end of the three-year period. Compensation expense is reversed if at any time during the three-year service period the executive officer is no longer an employee, subject to the retirement and termination eligibility provisions noted above.

During the nine months ended October 4, 2015 and September 28, 2014, Teradyne granted 0.2 million and 0.1 million, TSR PRSUs, respectively, with a grant date fair value of $18.21 and $22.06, respectively. The fair value was estimated using the Monte Carlo simulation model with the following assumptions:

 

     For the Nine Months
Ended
 
     October 4,
2015
    September 28,
2014
 

Risk-free interest rate

     28.2     36.1

Philadelphia Semiconductor Index volatility-historical

     19.7     24.6

Dividend yield

     1.33     1.25

Expected volatility was based on the historical volatility of Teradyne’s stock and the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index over the most recent three year period. The risk-free interest rate was determined using the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. Dividend yield was based upon an estimated annual dividend amount of $0.24 per share divided by Teradyne’s stock price on the grant date of $18.10 for 2015 grants and $19.16 for 2014 grants.

During the nine months ended October 4, 2015, Teradyne granted 1.5 million of service-based restricted stock unit awards to employees at a weighted average grant date fair value of $17.27 and 0.1 million of service-based stock options to executive officers at a weighted average grant date fair value of $4.43.

During the nine months ended September 28, 2014, Teradyne granted 1.7 million of service-based restricted stock unit awards to employees at a weighted average grant date fair value of $19.09 and 0.1 million of service-based stock options to executive officers at a weighted average grant date fair value of $5.49.

Restricted stock unit awards granted to employees vest in equal annual installments over four years. Stock options vest in equal annual installments over four years and have a term of seven years from the date of grant.

The fair value of stock options was estimated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following assumptions:

 

     For the Nine Months

Risk-free interest rate

     1.1     1.2

Volatility-historical

     33.4     38.8

Dividend yield

     1.33     1.25

Teradyne determined the stock options’ expected life based upon historical exercise data for executive officers, the age of the executive officers and the terms of the stock option grant. Volatility was determined using historical volatility for a period equal to the expected life. The risk-free interest rate was determined using the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. Dividend yield was based upon an estimated annual dividend amount of $0.24 per share divided by Teradyne’s stock price on the grant date, of $18.10 for 2015 grants and $19.16 for 2014 grants.

Effective January 31, 2014, Michael Bradley retired as Chief Executive Officer of Teradyne. On January 22, 2014, Teradyne entered into an agreement (the “Retirement Agreement”) with Mr. Bradley. Under the Retirement Agreement, Mr. Bradley’s unvested restricted stock units and stock options granted prior to his retirement date will continue to vest in accordance with their terms through January 31, 2017; and any vested options or options that vest during that period may be exercised for the remainder of the applicable option term. In the Retirement Agreement, Mr. Bradley agreed to be bound by non-competition and non-solicitation restrictions through January 31, 2017. Mr. Bradley continues to serve on Teradyne’s Board of Directors. In the three months ended March 30, 2014, Teradyne recorded a one-time charge to stock-based compensation expense of $6.6 million related to the Retirement Agreement.

(1) Incremental shares from the assumed conversion of the convertible notes were calculated using the difference between the average Teradyne stock price for the period and the conversion price of $5.48, multiplied by 34.7 million shares. The result of this calculation, representing the total intrinsic value of the convertible debt, was divided by the average Teradyne stock price for the period.
(2) Convertible note hedge warrant shares were calculated using the difference between the average Teradyne stock price for the period and the warrant price of $7.6650, multiplied by 34.7 million shares. The result of this calculation, representing the total intrinsic value of the warrant, was divided by the average Teradyne stock price for the period. Teradyne’s call option on its common stock (convertible note hedge transaction) was excluded from the calculation of diluted shares because the effect was anti-dilutive. See Note F: “Debt” regarding the convertible note hedge transaction.

The computation of diluted net income per common share for the three and nine months ended October 4, 2015 excludes the effect of the potential exercise of stock options to purchase approximately 0.2 million shares because the effect would have been anti-dilutive.

The computation of diluted net income per common share for the three and nine months ended September 28, 2014 excludes the effect of the potential exercise of stock options to purchase approximately 0.3 million shares because the effect would have been anti-dilutive.

N. Restructuring and Other

Other

During the three months ended October 4, 2015, Teradyne recorded a $1.0 million gain from the decrease in the fair value of the AIT contingent consideration liability, partially offset by $0.1 million of acquisition costs related to Universal Robots.

During the nine months ended October 4, 2015, Teradyne recorded a $2.6 million gain from the decrease in the fair value of contingent consideration liability, of which $1.6 million was related to the ZTEC acquisition and $1.0 million was related to the AIT acquisition, partially offset by $1.1 million of acquisition costs related to Universal Robots.

During the three and nine months ended September 28, 2014, Teradyne recorded a $0.6 million fair value adjustment to decrease the ZTEC acquisition contingent consideration.

Restructuring

During the three and nine months ended October 4, 2015, Teradyne recorded $1.1 million and $1.4 million, respectively, of severance charges related to headcount reductions of 18 and 22 people, respectively, primarily in System Test. During the nine months ended September 28, 2014, Teradyne recorded $0.8 million of severance charges related to headcount reductions of 30 people, primarily in Wireless Test.

O. Retirement Plans

ASC 715, “Compensation—Retirement Benefits” requires an employer with defined benefit plans or other postretirement benefit plans to recognize an asset or a liability on its balance sheet for the overfunded or underfunded status of the plans. The pension asset or liability represents a difference between the fair value of the pension plan’s assets and the projected benefit obligation.

Defined Benefit Pension Plans

Teradyne has defined benefit pension plans covering a portion of domestic employees and employees of certain non-U.S. subsidiaries. Benefits under these plans are based on employees’ years of service and compensation. Teradyne’s funding policy is to make contributions to these plans in accordance with local laws and to the extent that such contributions are tax deductible. The assets of these plans consist primarily of fixed income and equity securities. In addition, Teradyne has an unfunded supplemental executive defined benefit plan in the United States to provide retirement benefits in excess of levels allowed by the Employment Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”) and the Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”), as well as unfunded foreign plans.

In the nine months ended October 4, 2015, Teradyne contributed $1.9 million to the U.S. supplemental executive defined benefit pension plan and $0.6 million to certain qualified plans for non-U.S. subsidiaries.

For the three and nine months ended October 4, 2015 and September 28, 2014, Teradyne’s net periodic pension cost was comprised of the following:

Postretirement Benefit Plan

In addition to receiving pension benefits, U.S. Teradyne employees who meet early retirement eligibility requirements as of their termination dates may participate in Teradyne’s Welfare Plan, which includes death, medical and dental benefits up to age 65. Death benefits provide a fixed sum to retirees’ survivors and are available to all retirees. Substantially all of Teradyne’s current U.S. employees could become eligible for these benefits, and the existing benefit obligation relates primarily to those employees.

P. Commitments and Contingencies

Purchase Commitments

As of October 4, 2015, Teradyne had entered into purchase commitments for certain components and materials. The purchase commitments covered by the agreements aggregate to approximately $219.6 million, of which $214.2 million is for less than one year.

Legal Claims

Teradyne is subject to various legal proceedings and claims which have arisen in the ordinary course of business. In the opinion of management, the ultimate disposition of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on Teradyne’s results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.

Q. Income Taxes

The effective tax rate for the three months ended October 4, 2015 and September 28, 2014 was 18.3% and 17.6%, respectively. The effective tax rates for these periods were lower than the expected federal statutory rate of 35% primarily because of the favorable effect of statutory rates applicable to income earned outside the United States. The tax rate for the three months ended October 4, 2015 was increased by additions to the uncertain tax positions for transfer pricing included in the projected annual effective tax rate, partially offset by $3.3 million of discrete tax benefits composed of $1.8 million of benefit attributable to a United States Tax Court opinion regarding intercompany cost sharing arrangements, $0.6 million of reductions in uncertain tax positions resulting from the expiration of statutes and $0.9 million from other discrete tax benefits.

The tax rate for the three months ended September 28, 2014 was increased by $5.6 million of discrete tax expense composed of $7.2 million of additions to the uncertain tax positions for transfer pricing net of $0.9 million of discrete tax benefits resulting from increases in credit carry forwards and $0.7 million from other discrete tax benefits.

The effective tax rate for the nine months ended October 4, 2015 and September 28, 2014 was 20.9% and 15.9%, respectively. The effective tax rates for these periods were lower than the expected federal statutory rate of 35% primarily because of the favorable effect of statutory rates applicable to income earned outside the United States. The tax rate for the nine months ended October 4, 2015 was increased by additions to the uncertain tax positions for transfer pricing included in the projected annual effective tax rate, partially offset by $5.0 million of discrete tax benefits composed of $1.8 million of benefit attributable to a United States Tax Court opinion regarding intercompany cost sharing arrangements, $1.3 million of reductions in uncertain tax positions resulting from the expiration of statutes and the settlement of an audit, $0.9 million from disqualifying dispositions of incentive stock options and employee stock purchase plan shares and $1.0 million from other discrete tax benefits.

 

27


Table of Contents

The tax rate for the nine months ended September 28, 2014 was increased by $2.6 million of discrete tax expense composed of $7.2 million of additions to the uncertain tax positions for transfer pricing net of $1.7 million of discrete tax benefits from disqualifying dispositions of incentive stock options and employee stock purchase plan shares, $0.9 million of discrete tax benefits resulting from increases in credit carry forwards and $2.0 million from other discrete tax benefits.

On a quarterly basis, Teradyne evaluates the realizability of the deferred tax assets by jurisdiction and assesses the need for a valuation allowance. As of October 4, 2015, Teradyne believes that it will ultimately realize the deferred tax assets recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheet. However, should Teradyne believe that it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets would not be realized, the tax provision would increase in the period in which Teradyne determined that the realizability was not likely. Teradyne considers the probability of future taxable income and historical profitability, among other factors, in assessing the realizability of the deferred tax assets.

As of October 4, 2015 and December 31, 2014, Teradyne had $33.3 million and $30.4 million, respectively, of reserves for uncertain tax positions. The $2.9 million net increase in reserves for uncertain tax positions relates primarily to transfer pricing exposures.

As of October 4, 2015, Teradyne anticipated the liability for uncertain tax positions could decrease by approximately $0.1 million over the next twelve months, primarily as a result of the expiration of statutes of limitations. The potential decrease is related to transfer pricing exposures.

Teradyne recognizes interest and penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense. As of October 4, 2015 and December 31, 2014, $0.3 million and $0.6 million, respectively, of interest and penalties were included in the reserve for uncertain tax positions.

Teradyne qualifies for a tax holiday in Singapore by fulfilling the requirements of an agreement with the Singapore Economic Development Board under which certain headcount and spending requirements must be met. The tax savings due to the tax holiday for the nine months ended October 4, 2015 was $9.9 million, or $0.05 per diluted share. The tax savings due to the tax holiday for the nine months ended September 28, 2014 was $12.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share. The tax holiday is currently expected to expire on December 31, 2015. Teradyne is in discussion with the Singapore Economic Development Board with respect to extension of the tax holiday for periods after December 31, 2015.

R. Segment Information

Teradyne has four operating segments (Semiconductor Test, Wireless Test, System Test and Industrial Automation), which are its reportable segments. The Semiconductor Test segment includes operations related to the design, manufacturing and marketing of semiconductor test products and services. The Wireless Test segment includes operations related to the design, manufacturing and marketing of wireless test products and services. The System Test segment includes operations related to the design, manufacturing and marketing of products and services for defense/aerospace instrumentation test, storage test and circuit-board test. The Industrial Automation segment includes operations related to the design, manufacturing and marketing of collaborative robots. Each operating segment has a segment manager who is directly accountable to and maintains regular contact with Teradyne’s chief operating decision maker (Teradyne’s chief executive officer) to discuss operating activities, financial results, forecasts, and plans for the segment.

Teradyne evaluates performance based on several factors, of which the primary financial measure is business segment income before income taxes. The accounting policies of the business segments in effect are described in Note B: “Accounting Policies” in Teradyne’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, unless updated in this form 10-Q, where applicable.

S. Shareholders’ Equity

Stock Repurchase Program

In January 2015, the Board of Directors authorized Teradyne to repurchase up to $500 million of common stock, $300 million of which Teradyne intends to repurchase in 2015. The cumulative repurchases as of October 4, 2015 totaled 11.9 million shares of common stock for a total purchase price of $226.8 million at an average price per share of $19.09. The total price includes commissions and is recorded as a reduction to retained earnings.

Dividend

Holders of Teradyne’s common stock are entitled to receive dividends when they are declared by Teradyne’s Board of Directors.

In January 2015, May 2015, and August 2015, Teradyne’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share. Dividend payments for the three and nine months ended October 4, 2015 were $12.6 million and $38.4 million, respectively.

In January 2014 and August 2014, Teradyne’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share. Dividend payments for the three and nine months ended September 28, 2014 were $12.8 million and $24.4 million, respectively.

While Teradyne declared a quarterly cash dividend and authorized a share repurchase program, it may reduce or eliminate the cash dividend or share repurchase program in the future. Future cash dividends and stock repurchases are subject to the discretion of Teradyne’s Board of Directors which will consider, among other things, Teradyne’s earnings, capital requirements and financial condition.

Item 2: Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q which are not historical facts, so called “forward looking statements,” are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Investors are cautioned that all forward looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, including those detailed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. See also Part II, Item 1A of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Part I, Item 1A “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements which reflect management’s analysis only as of the date hereof. We assume no obligation to update these forward looking statements to reflect actual results or changes in factors or assumptions affecting forward- looking statements, except as may be required by law.

Overview

We are a leading global supplier of automation equipment for test and industrial applications. We design, develop, manufacture and sell automatic test systems and solutions used to test semiconductors, wireless products, hard disk drives and circuit boards in the consumer electronics, wireless, automotive, industrial, computing, communications, and aerospace and defense industries. Our automatic test equipment and industrial automation products and services include:

 

    semiconductor test (“Semiconductor Test”) systems;

 

    wireless test (“Wireless Test”) systems;

 

    defense/aerospace (“Defense/Aerospace”) test instrumentation and systems, storage test (“Storage Test”) systems, and circuit-board test and inspection (“Production Board Test”) systems (collectively these products represent “System Test”); and

 

    industrial automation (“Industrial Automation”) products include collaborative robots used by global manufacturing and light industrial customers to improve quality and increase manufacturing efficiency.

We have a broad customer base which includes integrated device manufacturers (“IDMs”), outsourced semiconductor assembly and test providers (“OSATs”), wafer foundries, fabless companies that design, but contract with others for the manufacture of integrated circuits (“ICs”), developers of wireless devices and consumer electronics, manufacturers of circuit boards, automotive suppliers, wireless product manufacturers, storage device manufacturers, aerospace and military contractors, and distributors that sell collaborative robots.

On June 11, 2015, we acquired Universal Robots A/S (“Universal Robots”) for approximately $284 million of cash plus up to an additional $65 million of cash if certain performance targets are met extending through 2018. Universal Robots is the leading supplier of collaborative robots which are low-cost, easy-to-deploy and simple-to-program robots that work side by side with production workers to improve quality and increase manufacturing efficiency. Universal Robots is a separate operating and reportable segment, Industrial Automation. The acquisition of Universal Robots provides a growth engine to our business and complements our existing System Test and Wireless Test segments.

In October 2014, we acquired Avionics Interface Technologies, LLC (“AIT”), a supplier of equipment for testing state-of-the-art data communication buses. The acquisition of AIT complements our Defense/Aerospace line of bus test instrumentation for commercial and defense avionics systems. AIT is included in our System Test segment.

We believe our recent acquisitions have enhanced our opportunities for growth. We intend to continue to invest in our business, grow market share in our markets and expand further our addressable markets while tightly managing our costs.

Table of Contents

The sales of our products and services are dependent, to a large degree, on customers who are subject to cyclical trends in the demand for their products. These cyclical periods have had, and will continue to have, a significant effect on our business since our customers often delay or accelerate purchases in reaction to changes in their businesses and to demand fluctuations in the semiconductor and electronics industries. Historically, these demand fluctuations have resulted in significant variations in our results of operations. The sharp swings in the semiconductor and electronics industries in recent years have generally affected the semiconductor and electronics test equipment and services industries more significantly than the overall capital equipment sector.

In the fourth quarter of 2014, we performed our annual goodwill impairment test and recorded a goodwill impairment charge of $98.9 million in our Wireless Test segment as a result of decreased projected demand attributable to an estimated smaller future wireless test market due to reuse of wireless test equipment, price competition and different testing techniques. Further reductions in the size of the wireless test market may occur, which may result in additional goodwill impairment charges, increased risk of excess and obsolete inventories, asset write-offs and restructuring charges.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

We have identified the policies which are critical to understanding our business and our results of operations. Except for below, there have been no significant changes during the nine months ended October 4, 2015 to the items disclosed as our critical accounting policies and estimates in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014.

Revenue Recognition

We recognize revenues when there is persuasive evidence of an arrangement, title and risk of loss have passed, delivery has occurred or the services have been rendered, the sales price is fixed or determinable and collection of the related receivable is reasonably assured. Title and risk of loss generally pass to our customers upon shipment or at delivery destination point. In circumstances where either title or risk of loss pass upon destination, acceptance or cash payment, we defer revenue recognition until such events occur except when title transfer is tied to cash payment outside the United States. Outside the United States, we recognize revenue upon shipment or at delivery destination point, even if we retain a form of title to products delivered to customers, provided the sole purpose is to enable us to recover the products in the event of customer payment default and the arrangement does not prohibit the customer’s use or resale of the product in the ordinary course of business.

Our equipment has non-software and embedded software components that function together to deliver the equipment’s essential functionality. Revenue is recognized upon shipment or at delivery destination point, provided that customer acceptance criteria can be demonstrated prior to shipment. Certain contracts require us to perform tests of the product to ensure that performance meets the published product specifications or customer requested specifications, which are generally conducted prior to shipment. Where the criteria cannot be demonstrated prior to shipment, revenue is deferred until customer acceptance has been received. We also defer the portion of the sales price that is not due until acceptance, which represents deferred profit.

For multiple element arrangements, we allocate revenue to all deliverables based on their relative selling prices. In such circumstances, a hierarchy is used to determine the selling price for allocating revenue to deliverables as follows: (i) vendor-specific objective evidence of selling price (“VSOE”), (ii) third-party evidence of selling price (“TPE”), and (iii) best estimate of the selling price (“BESP”). For a delivered item to be considered a separate unit, the delivered item must have value to the customer on a standalone basis and the delivery or performance of the undelivered item must be considered probable and substantially in our control.

Our post-shipment obligations include installation, training services, one-year standard warranties, and extended warranties. Installation does not alter the product capabilities, does not require specialized skills or

 

33


Table of Contents

tools and can be performed by the customers or other vendors. Installation is typically provided within five days of product shipment and is completed within one to two days thereafter. Training services are optional and do not affect the customers’ ability to use the product. We defer revenue for the selling price of installation and training. Extended warranties constitute warranty obligations beyond one year and we defer revenue in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 605-20, “Separately Priced Extended Warranty and Product Maintenance Contracts” and ASC 605-25, “Revenue Recognition Multiple-Element Arrangements.” Service revenue is recognized over the contractual period or as services are performed.

Our products are generally subject to warranty and the related costs of the warranty are provided for in cost of revenues when product revenue is recognized. We classify shipping and handling costs in cost of revenues.

We do not provide our customers with contractual rights of return for any of our products.

Translation of Non-U.S. Currencies

The functional currency for all non-U.S. subsidiaries is the U.S. dollar, except for the Industrial Automation segment for which the local currency is its functional currency. All foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities are re-measured on a monthly basis into the functional currency using exchange rates in effect at the end of the period. All foreign currency denominated non-monetary assets and liabilities are re-measured into the functional currency using historical exchange rates. Net foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from re-measurement are included in other (income) expense, net. For Industrial Automation, assets and liabilities are translated into U.S. dollars using exchange rates in effect at the end of the period. Revenue and expense amounts are translated using an average of exchange rates in effect during the period. Translation adjustments are recorded within accumulated other comprehensive income (loss).

The decrease in Semiconductor Test revenues of $54.6 million, or 14.4%, was primarily due to lower system-on-a-chip (“SOC”) product volume, driven by the application processor and microcontroller markets. The increase in System Test revenue of $26.0 million, or 60%, was primarily due to higher sales in Storage Test of 3.5” hard disk drive testers for cloud storage. The increase in Wireless Test revenue of $0.6 million, or 1.1%, was primarily driven by higher cellular test system sales. The acquisition of Universal Robots, which is our Industrial Automation segment, completed in June of 2015, added $16.1 million of revenue in the three months ended October 4, 2015.

Table of Contents

Gross profit as a percent of revenue increased by 0.9 points primarily as a result of an increase of 1.2 points related to lower variable compensation and other spending, partially offset by a decrease of 0.3 points related to lower sales in Semiconductor Test.

We assess the carrying value of our inventory on a quarterly basis by estimating future demand and comparing that demand against on-hand and on-order inventory positions. Forecasted revenue information is obtained from the sales and marketing groups and incorporates factors such as backlog and future revenue demand. This quarterly process identifies obsolete and excess inventory. Obsolete inventory, which represents items for which there is no demand, is fully reserved. Excess inventory, which represents inventory items that are not expected to be consumed during the next twelve quarters, is written-down to estimated net realizable value.

During the three months ended October 4, 2015, we recorded an inventory provision of $3.1 million included in cost of revenues primarily due to downward revisions to previously forecasted demand levels. Of the $3.1 million of total excess and obsolete provisions, $1.7 million was related to Semiconductor Test, $0.9 million was related to Wireless Test, and $0.5 million was related to System Test.

During the three months ended September 28, 2014, we recorded an inventory provision of $6.4 million included in cost of revenues primarily due to downward revisions to previously forecasted demand levels. Of the $6.4 million of total excess and obsolete provisions, $4.4 million was related to Semiconductor Test, $1.3 million was related to Wireless Test, and $0.7 million was related to System Test.

During the three months ended October 4, 2015 and September 28, 2014, we scrapped $3.6 million and $11.1 million of inventory, respectively. During the three months ended October 4, 2015 and September 28, 2014, we sold $2.0 million and $6.2 million of previously written-down or written-off inventory, respectively. As of October 4, 2015, we had inventory related reserves for inventory which had been written-down or written-off totaling $121.1 million. We have no pre-determined timeline to scrap the remaining inventory.

The increase of $4.4 million in selling and administrative expenses was due primarily to additional costs as a result of the acquisition of Universal Robots in June 2015.

Restructuring and Other

Restructuring

During the three months ended October 4, 2015, we recorded $1.1 million of severance charges related to headcount reductions of 18 people, primarily in System Test. During the three months ended September 28, 2014, we recorded $0.2 million of severance charges related to headcount reductions of 2 people in System Test.

Other

During the three months ended October 4, 2015, we recorded a $1.0 million gain from the decrease in the fair value of the AIT contingent consideration liability, partially offset by $0.1 million of acquisition costs related to Universal Robots.

During the three months ended September 28, 2014, we recorded a $0.6 million fair value adjustment to decrease the ZTEC acquisition contingent consideration.

Income Taxes

The effective tax rate for the three months ended October 4, 2015 and September 28, 2014 was 18.3% and 17.6%, respectively. The increase in the effective tax rate is primarily attributable to a projected increase in income subject to tax in the United States as compared to lower rate foreign jurisdictions net of $7.2 million decrease in discrete tax expense related to uncertain tax positions for transfer pricing and $1.8 million of discrete tax benefit attributable to a United States Tax Court opinion regarding intercompany cost sharing arrangements. We are in discussion with the Singapore Economic Development Board with respect to extension of the tax holiday for periods after December 31, 2015.

Gross profit as a percent of revenue increased by 2.5 points due to product mix and sales of previously leased testers in Semiconductor Test.

We assess the carrying value of our inventory on a quarterly basis by estimating future demand and comparing that demand against on-hand and on-order inventory positions. Forecasted revenue information is obtained from the sales and marketing groups and incorporates factors such as backlog and future revenue demand. This quarterly process identifies obsolete and excess inventory. Obsolete inventory, which represents items for which there is no demand, is fully reserved. Excess inventory, which represents inventory items that are not expected to be consumed during the next twelve quarters, is written-down to estimated net realizable value.

During the nine months ended October 4, 2015, we recorded an inventory provision of $18.9 million included in cost of revenues primarily due to $7.7 million related to downward revisions to previously forecasted demand levels for our 2.5” hard disk drive testers in Storage Test, $6.0 million related to product transition in Semiconductor Test, and $2.1 million related to downward revision to previously forecasted demand levels in Wireless Test. Of the $18.9 million of total excess and obsolete provisions, $8.6 million was related to Semiconductor Test, $8.2 million was related to System Test, and $2.1 million was related to Wireless Test.

During the nine months ended September 28, 2014, we recorded an inventory provision of $21.5 million included in cost of revenues with $15.3 million due to downward revisions to previously forecasted demand levels and $6.2 million related to product transition in Semiconductor Test. Of the $21.5 million of total excess and obsolete provisions, $14.3 million was related to Semiconductor Test, $5.2 million was related to Wireless Test, and $2.0 million was related to System Test.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balances decreased by $221.7 million in the nine months ended October 4, 2015, to $1,077 million.

In the nine months ended October 4, 2015, changes in operating assets and liabilities provided cash of $39.9 million. This was due to a $42.2 million increase in operating assets and an $82.1 million increase in operating liabilities.

The increase in operating assets was due to a $91.1 million increase in accounts receivable due to higher sales, partially offset by a $33.4 million decrease in inventories and a $15.5 million decrease in prepayments and other assets. The increase in operating liabilities was due to a $41.8 million increase in other accrued liabilities, a $25.9 million increase in accounts payable due to higher sales, a $25.7 million increase in accrued income taxes, and a $6.8 million increase in customer advance payments and deferred revenue partially offset by a $15.1 million decrease in accrued employee compensation due primarily to variable compensation and employee stock compensation awards’ payroll tax payments, and $3.0 million of retirement plans contributions.

Table of Contents

Investing activities during the nine months ended October 4, 2015 used cash of $126.5 million, due to $957.7 million used for purchases of marketable securities, $282.7 million used for the acquisition of Universal Robots, and $66.7 million used for purchases of property, plant and equipment, partially offset by proceeds from maturities and sales of marketable securities of $330.4 million and $843.7 million, respectively, proceeds from the sale of an equity investment of $5.4 million, and proceeds from life insurance of $1.1 million related to the cash surrender value from the cancellation of Teradyne owned life insurance policies. The decrease in purchases of property, plant and equipment of $79.6 million was primarily due to higher purchases of testers for customer leasing in the nine months ended September 28, 2014.

Financing activities during the nine months ended October 4, 2015 used cash of $246.2 million, due to $226.8 million used for the repurchase of 11.9 million shares of common stock at an average price of $19.09 per share, $38.4 million used for dividend payments, and $2.3 million used for debt issuance costs related to our April 2015 revolving credit facility, partially offset by $18.1 million from the issuance of common stock under employee stock purchase and stock option plans and $3.2 million from the tax benefit related to employee stock compensation awards.

In the nine months ended September 28, 2014, changes in operating assets and liabilities used cash of $27.3 million. This was due to a $77.6 million increase in operating assets and a $50.3 million increase in operating liabilities.

The increase in operating assets was due to a $163.7 million increase in accounts receivable due to higher sales and increase in days sales outstanding (“DSO”). DSO for the three months ended September 28, 2014 was 61 days as compared to December 31, 2013 DSO of 50 days. The increase in accounts receivable was partially offset by a $47.8 million decrease in prepayments and other assets and a $38.3 million decrease in inventories due to higher sales. The increase in operating liabilities was due to a $52.2 million increase in other accrued liabilities, a $14.3 million increase in customer advance payments and deferred revenue and a $10.2 million increase in accrued income taxes, partially offset by a $16.2 million decrease in accrued employee compensation due primarily to variable compensation and employee stock award payroll tax payments, a $4.3 million convertible note interest payment, $3.3 million of retirement plan contributions and a $2.6 million decrease in accounts payable.

Investing activities during the nine months ended September 28, 2014 used cash of $254.4 million, due to $844.1 million used for purchases of marketable securities and $146.4 million used for purchases of property, plant and equipment, partially offset by proceeds from maturities and sales of marketable securities that provided cash of $495.6 million and $236.1 million, respectively, and proceeds from life insurance of $4.4 million related to the cash surrender value from the cancellation of Teradyne owned life insurance policies on its retired chief executive officer.

Financing activities during the nine months ended September 28, 2014 used cash of $192.6 million. $191.0 million of cash was used for payments on long-term debt related to the convertible note and the Japan loan and $24.4 million was used for dividend payments, partially offset by $21.0 million provided by the issuance of common stock under employee stock purchase and stock option plans and $1.7 million from the tax benefit related to stock options and restricted stock units.

In January 2014 and August 2014, our Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share. In the nine months ended September 28, 2014, dividend payments were $24.4 million.

In January 2015, May 2015, and August 2015, our Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share. In the nine months ended October 4, 2015, dividend payments were $38.4 million.

In January 2015, our Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $500 million of common stock, $300 million of which we intend to repurchase in 2015. As of October 4, 2015 we repurchased 11.9 million shares of common stock at an average price of $19.09, for a total cost of $226.8 million.

Table of Contents

While we declared a quarterly cash dividend and authorized a share repurchase program, we may reduce or eliminate the cash dividend or share repurchase program in the future. Future cash dividends and stock repurchases are subject to the discretion of our Board of Directors which will consider, among other things, our earnings, capital requirements and financial condition.

We believe our cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balance will be sufficient to pay our quarterly dividend, execute our authorized share repurchase program and meet our working capital and expenditure needs for at least the next twelve months. The amount of cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities in the U.S. and our operations in the U.S. provide sufficient liquidity to fund our business activities in the U.S. We have approximately $550 million of cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities outside the U.S. that if repatriated would incur additional taxes. Determination of the additional taxes that would be incurred is not practicable due to uncertainty regarding the remittance structure, the mix of earnings and earnings and profit pools in the year of remittance, and overall complexity of the calculation. Inflation has not had a significant long-term impact on earnings.

Equity Compensation Plans

As discussed in Note N: “Stock Based Compensation” in our 2014 Form 10-K, we have a 1996 Employee Stock Purchase Plan and a 2006 Equity and Cash Compensation Incentive Plan (the “2006 Equity Plan”).

The purpose of the 1996 Employee Stock Purchase Plan is to encourage stock ownership by all eligible employees of Teradyne. The purpose of the 2006 Equity Plan is to provide equity ownership and compensation opportunities in Teradyne to our employees, officers, directors, consultants and/or advisors. Both plans were approved by our shareholders.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In September 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) 2015-16, “Business Combinations (Topic 805)—Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments . ASU 2015-16 requires that an acquirer recognize adjustments to provisional amounts that are identified during the measurement period in the reporting period in which the adjustments are identified, including the cumulative effect of the change in provisional amount as if the accounting had been completed at the acquisition date. ASU 2015-16 is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2015 and is applied prospectively. Early adoption is permitted. We early adopted this ASU in the three months ended October 4, 2015. Adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on our financial position and results of operations.

On April 7, 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03, “Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs,” which requires debt issuance costs to be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying value of the associated debt liability, consistent with the presentation for debt discount. ASU 2015-03 does not specifically address requirements for the presentation or subsequent measurement of debt issuance costs related to line-of-credit arrangements. On August 8, 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-15, “Interest—Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30)” which clarifies the debt issuance costs related to line-of-credit arrangements, stating that they could be presented as an asset and amortized over the term of the line-of-credit arrangement, regardless of whether there are any outstanding borrowings on the line-of-credit arrangement. For us, the standard is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within those years. This ASU is expected to have no impact on our financial position and results of operations.

In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606),” which will replace numerous requirements in U.S. GAAP, including industry-specific requirements, and provide companies with a single revenue recognition model for recognizing revenue from contracts with customers. The core principle of the new standard is that a company should recognize revenue to show the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the

Table of Contents

consideration to which the company expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. On April 1, 2015, the FASB proposed a deferral of the effective date of the new revenue standard by one year, until January 1, 2018. This deferral was approved on July 22, 2015. The standard will be effective in our first quarter of 2018. Early adoption is permitted but not before the original effective date (that is, annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016). The two permitted transition methods under the new standard are the full retrospective method, in which case the standard would be applied to each prior reporting period presented, or the modified retrospective method, in which case the cumulative effect of applying the standard would be recognized at the date of initial application. We have not yet selected a transition method. We are currently evaluating the impact of this ASU on our financial position and results of operations.

 

Item 3: Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

For “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk” affecting Teradyne, see Part 2 Item 7a, “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risks,” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 27, 2015. There were no material changes in our exposure to market risk from those set forth in our Annual Report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014.

 

Item 4: Controls and Procedures

As of the end of the period covered by this report, our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) promulgated under the Exchange Act. Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective in ensuring that material information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, including ensuring that such material information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

During the period covered by this report, there have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1: Legal Proceedings

We are subject to various legal proceedings and claims which have arisen in the ordinary course of business. In the opinion of management, the ultimate disposition of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.

 

Item 1A: Risk Factors

In addition to other information set forth in this Form 10-Q, you should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part I, “Item 1A: Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, which could materially affect our business, financial condition or future results. The risk factors described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K remain applicable to our business.

The risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K are not the only risks that we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and/or operating results.

We may incur indebtedness.

On April 27, 2015, we entered into a five-year, senior secured revolving credit facility of $350.0 million. Subject to customary conditions, we may seek to obtain from existing or new lenders incremental commitments under the credit facility in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $150.0 million. We have not borrowed any funds under this credit facility. We could borrow funds under this credit facility at any time for general corporate purposes and working capital. Incurring indebtedness, among other things, could:

 

    make it difficult to pay other obligations;

 

    make it difficult to obtain any necessary future financing for working capital, capital expenditures, debt service requirements or other purposes;

 

    require the dedication of a substantial portion of any cash flow from operations to service our indebtedness, thereby reducing the amount of cash flow available for other purposes, including capital expenditures; and

 

    limit our flexibility in planning for, or reacting to, changes in our business and the markets in which we compete.

Restrictive covenants in the agreement governing our senior secured revolving credit facility may restrict our ability to pursue business strategies.

The agreement governing our senior secured revolving credit facility limits our ability, among other things, to: incur additional secured indebtedness; sell, transfer, license or dispose of assets; consolidate or merge; enter into transactions with our affiliates; and incur liens. In addition, our senior secured revolving credit facility contains financial and other restrictive covenants that limit our ability to engage in activities that may be in our long term best interest, such as, subject to permitted exceptions, making capital expenditures in excess of certain thresholds, making investments, loans and other advances, and prepaying any additional indebtedness while our indebtedness under our senior secured revolving credit facility is outstanding. Our failure to comply with financial and other restrictive covenants could result in an event of default, which if not cured or waived, could result in the lenders requiring immediate payment of all outstanding borrowings or foreclosing on collateral pledged to them to secure the indebtedness.

We may not fully realize the benefits of our acquisitions or strategic alliances.

In June 2015, we acquired Universal Robots. We may not be able to realize the benefit of acquiring Universal Robots or successfully grow Universal Robots’ business. We may continue to acquire additional

 

45


Table of Contents

businesses, form strategic alliances or create joint ventures with third parties that we believe will complement or augment our existing businesses. We may not be able to realize the expected synergies and cost savings from the integration with our existing operations of other businesses or technologies that we may acquire. In addition, the integration process for our acquisitions may be complex, costly and time consuming and include unanticipated issues, expenses and liabilities. We may have difficulty in developing, manufacturing and marketing the products of a newly acquired company in a manner that enhances the performance of our combined businesses or product lines and allows us to realize value from expected synergies. Following an acquisition, we may not achieve the revenue or net income levels that justify the acquisition. Acquisitions may also result in one-time charges (such as acquisition-related expenses, write-offs or restructuring charges) or in the future, impairment of goodwill, that adversely affect our operating results. Additionally, we may fund acquisitions of new businesses, strategic alliances or joint ventures by utilizing our cash, incurring debt, issuing shares of our common stock, or by other means.

 

Item 2: Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

In January 2015, our Board of Directors cancelled our 2010 stock repurchase program and authorized a new stock repurchase program for up to $500 million of common stock, $300 million of which we intend to repurchase in 2015. The cumulative repurchases as of October 4, 2015 totaled 11.9 million shares of common stock for $226.8 million at an average price per share of $19.09.

The following table includes information with respect to repurchases we made of our common stock during the three months ended October 4, 2015 (in thousands except per share price):

(1) Includes approximately six thousand shares at an average price of $18.07 withheld from employees for the payment of taxes.

We satisfy U.S. federal and state minimum withholding tax obligations due upon the vesting and the conversion of restricted stock units into shares of our common stock, by automatically withholding from the shares being issued, a number of shares with an aggregate fair market value on the date of such vesting and conversion that would satisfy the minimum withholding amount due.
