  • Sales: The company’s quarterly sales reached $20.62 million, beating the analyst consensus estimate of $19.23 million. This represents a substantial increase of 93.27% compared to sales of $10.67 million in the same period last year.
  • Financial Position: Aehr Test Systems’ total cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments stood at $51.0 million as of August 31, up from $47.9 million at the end of May.

According to Gayn Erickson, the President and CEO of Aehr Test Systems, β€œWe had a strong first quarter, achieving solid revenue and non-GAAP net income. This quarter typically shows softer performance, so we are pleased with the results. Looking ahead, we expect to achieve over 50% revenue growth and more than 90% profit growth year over year.”
