Highlights of the Third Quarter 2016
Rafi Amit, Camtek’s Chairman and CEO, commented, “We are very pleased with the results of this quarter and our revenue guidance forecasts that 2016 will end as a record year for us. Our ongoing revenue growth was once again driven by solid performance in our semiconductor business. Approximately 40% of the systems shipped this quarter will be used in the advanced packaging market. As this market segment remains strong, we continue our penetration to the advanced packaging 2D inspection with new customers for Fan-out applications using our unique inspection capabilities.”
Added Mr. Amit, “We are also pleased with our improvement in profitability which was mainly due to lower operating expenses. Furthermore, following the reorganization of our digital printing activity in August, we expect to see additional operating expense savings ahead. We therefore look forward to demonstrating increased profitability margins for Camtek in the quarters ahead.”
