NVE Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Results
and Announces Quarterly Dividend

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—May 6, 2020—NVE Corporation (Nasdaq: NVEC) announced today financial results for the quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2020.

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 increased 10% to $6.15 million from $5.59 million in the prior-year quarter. The increase was due to a 11% increase in product sales, partially offset by a 14% decrease in contract research and development revenue. Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 increased 18% to $3.37 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, compared to $2.86 million, or $0.59 per share, for the prior-year quarter.

For fiscal 2020, total revenue decreased 4% to $25.41 million from $26.47 million for the prior fiscal year. The decrease was due to a 4% decrease in product sales and a 14% decrease in contract research and development revenue. Net income for fiscal 2020 increased to $14.53 million, or $3.00 per diluted share, compared to $14.51 million, or $2.99 per diluted share, for fiscal 2019.

The company also announced a quarterly cash dividend to shareholders of $1.00 per share of common stock, payable May 29, 2020 to shareholders of record as of May 18, 2020.

“We are pleased to report solid growth in revenue and net income for the quarter, and record net income for the fiscal year,” said NVE President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel A. Baker, Ph.D. “The COVID-19 pandemic will challenge us in coming quarters, but NVE has been operating effectively and serving our critical sectors thanks to the dedication and resourcefulness of our employees, suppliers, and distributors.”

NVE is a leader in the practical commercialization of spintronics, a nanotechnology that relies on electron spin rather than electron charge to acquire, store and transmit information. The company manufactures high-performance spintronic products including sensors and couplers that are used to acquire and transmit data.
