Highlights of the Full Year 2016
Rafi Amit, Camtek’s Chairman and CEO, commented, “The strength in our fourth quarter 2016 culminates a very good year for Camtek, with record full year revenues and solid improvements in our profitability margins and our bottom line. Our ongoing performance is being driven primarily by strong performance of our semiconductor business and in particular by systems for the advanced packaging market. In addition, the improvement in the operating margin is very gratifying and we expect it to continue to improve in 2017. ”
Added Mr. Amit, “Looking ahead, our business environment remains strong and we have seen a robust start to 2017. All signs point to another year of solid growth for Camtek, driven by continued double-digit growth of our semiconductor business. The first quarter, which includes the Chinese New Year, is typically the weakest one of the year. However, this year, we expect a strong first quarter with revenues at around, or possibly slightly better than, the fourth quarter levels, representing year-over-year growth of 20%.”
