Lam Research shares were dropping during extended trading Wednesday, following reports of the company’s lower-than-expected fiscal third quarter revenue.
The semiconductor company’s earnings for the quarter came in at $3.98 per share, in line with analysts’ estimate of $3.98 per share. But revenue of $2.5 billion fell behind analysts’ expectation of $2.58 billion.
Lam Research shares dropped 4.7% to $259 per share after hours.
“Extraordinary efforts by Lam’s global teams helped to mitigate the operational impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in solid financial performance in the March quarter,” said CEO Tim Archer.
The company had $5.6 billion in cash on hand at the end of March, after it drew down $1.25 billion from its revolving credit facility.
Last month, the company withdrew its third quarter guidance amid COVID-19 pandemic.
