/ Source: GlobeNewswire

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., May 4, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NVE Corporation (Nasdaq:NVEC) announced today financial results for the fiscal year and quarter ended March 31, 2011.

For fiscal 2011, total revenue increased 11% to $31.2 million from $28.1 million for the prior fiscal year. The increase was due to a 15% increase in product sales, partially offset by a 6% decrease in contract research and development revenue. Net income for fiscal 2011 increased 11% to $13.4 million, or $2.76 per diluted share, compared to $12.0 million, or $2.47 per diluted share, for fiscal 2010.

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 increased slightly to $8.183 million from $8.179 million in the prior-year quarter. The revenue increase was due to a 1% increase in product sales, which offset a 4% decrease in contract research and development revenue. Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 increased 2% to $3.67 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, compared to $3.60 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter.

"We are pleased to report record revenue, product sales, and net income for both the fiscal year and fourth quarter," said NVE President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel A. Baker, Ph.D.
