Management Comment

Rafi Amit, Camtek’s Chairman and CEO, commented, “Our four-year high in quarterly revenue has been driven by robust sales of Automatic Optical Inspection and Metrology systems to the semiconductor market. These sales reflect growth in the advanced packaging market segment as well as other leading segments such as CMOS Image Sensors and MEMS. Since the introduction of the Eagle product line in the second half of 2014, it has been successful in the marketplace for both new and existing customers. In the third quarter of 2015, a large portion of our semiconductor business came from Eagle sales with particularly strong demand from customers in Taiwan and China. We differentiate ourselves by working closely with industry leaders to provide tailor-made solutions for cutting edge technologies, like advanced packaging.”

Continued Mr. Amit, “With respect to the PCB market, the inspection business remains stable, and the Gryphon is in evaluation with four customers, three in the US and one in Asia. As the Gryphon progresses in its marketing phases, we have decided to integrate the two product lines serving the PCB market (inspection and digital printing) under one business unit. This move will improve the synergies between the sales force and the R&D team, as a result it will allow us to efficiently focus on improving the performances of the Gryphon based on the customers' feedback. Following implementation of market feedback, we will accelerate the process of broader market sales.”

Concluded Mr. Amit, “Looking ahead, we expect our fourth quarter revenue to remain around the same level as seen over the past two quarters. We continue to experience strong order flow, part of which we expect to ship in the first quarter of 2016. We look forward to another solid quarter, bringing our annual revenue to around the $100 million level, representing a significant step-up over that of the past years.”
