Sales for the quarter were $105.7 million compared to $104.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2007. Semiconductor photomasks accounted for $77.1 million, or 72.9% of revenues, during the third quarter of fiscal 2008, while flat panel display (FPD) photomasks accounted for $28.6 million, or 27.1% of revenues.

Net loss for the third quarter of fiscal year 2008 was $205.6 million, or $4.93 per share compared to net income of $2.2 million, or $0.05 per diluted share for the third quarter of fiscal 2007. The net loss for the third quarter of 2008 included the following charges: (1) A non-cash, pre-tax goodwill impairment charge of $138.5 million, or $137.3 million net of tax and $3.30 per diluted share; (2) A non-cash, pre-tax long-lived asset impairment charge of $66.9 million or $60.9 million net of tax and $1.46 per diluted share; and (3) a $1.0 million, net of tax, or $0.02 per diluted share, severance charge related to the separation agreement with its former chief executive officer. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the effect of the impairment charges and severance costs, the Company's net loss was $6.4 million, or $0.15 per share. Sales for the first nine months of 2008 were $319.2 million compared to $319.9 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2007. Semiconductor photomasks accounted for $237.5 million, or 74.4% of revenues during the first nine months of fiscal 2008, while FPD photomasks accounted for $81.8 million, or 25.6% of revenues. Year-over-year, semiconductor photomask revenues decreased 8.4%, while FPD photomask revenues increased 34.6%. Net loss for the first nine months of fiscal 2008 was $211 million, or $5.07 per share, compared to net income of $24.2 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, in the first nine months of the prior year. Net loss for the first nine months of 2008 includes the impact of the impairment and severance charges of $199.2 million, or $4.78 per diluted share. Net income for the first nine months of 2007 included a net benefit of $7.9 million, or $0.16 per share, relating to the resolution and settlement of United States and foreign tax liabilities associated with uncertain tax positions in prior years. Constantine ("Deno") S. Macricostas, Photronics’ chairman and interim chief executive officer commented, "Photronics’ third quarter performance was primarily affected by reduced demand for high-end IC photomasks as a result of the downturn in the memory market and customer restructurings. While we expect that the memory market will remain soft for the near term, we remain committed to our high-end strategy and expect that it will be an important, long-term contributor to Photronics’ future growth. Qualifications with key customers are progressing, and we anticipate an increase in high-end IC photomask sales over the next few quarters.” "During this time, we will continue to accelerate our cost reduction programs in order to improve our bottom line and better leverage our sales growth when the market rebounds,” concluded Macricostas.

The call is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Thursday, August 14, 2008. The live dial-in number is 719-325-4846. The call will be archived for instant replay access until the Company reports its fiscal fourth quarter results after the market closes on Tuesday, December 9, 2008. Photronics is a leading worldwide manufacturer of photomasks. Photomasks are high precision quartz plates that contain microscopic images of electronic circuits. A key element in the manufacture of semiconductors and flat panel displays, photomasks are used to transfer circuit patterns onto semiconductor wafers and flat panel substrates during the fabrication of integrated circuits, a variety of flat panel displays and, to a lesser extent, other types of electrical and optical components.
