Rafi Amit, Camtek’s Chairman and CEO, commented, “We are very pleased with our results, reporting revenues of over $27 million, which was ahead of our guidance. We also demonstrated solid gross and operating margins, leading to our strong profitability this quarter. This was driven by our performance in the semiconductor business. Advanced packaging continues to grow and capture a larger portion of the capital expenditure made by major manufacturers. Camtek is in a very strong position to continue to capitalize on this.”
Added Mr. Amit, “For the third quarter, we expect continued revenue growth, reaching a level of between $27.5- $29 million. This is in line with our positive outlook for the rest of the year, particularly in the back-end semiconductor space. As we stated back in February, we are targeting year on year double-digit growth in our semiconductor business.”
