Record Revenues of $34.3 Million, 13% YoY growth; Non-GAAP Operating Margin of 20.5%
Highlights of the Second Quarter 2019
Camtek’s Board of Directors declared a cash dividend in the amount of $0.17 per share representing an aggregate distribution of approximately $6.5 million. The dividend will be paid on September 4, 2019 to all shareholders of record at the close of the NASDAQ Global Select Market on August 21, 2019.
Rafi Amit Camtek’s CEO commented, “Camtek’s second quarter results reflect our strong track record of execution with record revenues and robust profitability. This is despite the current weakersemiconductor market. One of the consequences of the market uncertainty is that our customers are ordering equipment only for their short-term production needs and require short delivery times. As a result, for the third quarter, while we still expect a solid level of revenues, our expectations are for revenues within the range of $31 - 33 million.”
Continued Mr. Amit, “In the first half of 2019 we achieved an impressive revenue level of $68.3 million, 18% higher than in the first half of 2018, which itself was a record year for Camtek and the semiconductors industry. This performance demonstrates Camtek’s strong position in the market.
