Vicor Forecast Q4 Profit At Essentially Breakeven Level - Quick Facts

Vicor Corp. (VICR) Monday said it expects fourth-quarter earnings in an essentially break-even level, flat with prior-quarter. Based on existing backlog, the company has forecast a loss for the first quarter of 2013.

The company has been experiencing eight consecutive quarters of declining earnings, largely attributable to weak demands, lower volumes and higher expenses.

"In the fourth quarter of 2012, our bookings activity has slowed; through November 23. This reduction in orders has caused us to reassess our expectations for revenue and earnings for the fourth quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013, " said Patrizio Vinciarelli, Vicor's Chairman of the Board and CEO.
