Ultratech Revenue Up 27 Percent Year-over-year

News
Highest ever net sales over the past four years following Veeco deal

Ultratech, a supplier of lithography, laser-processing and inspection systems for semiconductor devices and high-brightness LEDs, has announced unaudited results for the three-month period ended April 1, 2017.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2017, Ultratech net sales totaled $57.4 million, or 27 percent higher than the $45.2 million reported in the year ago quarter. This level of net sales is the highest achieved by Ultratech over the past four years, and it follows the announcement in February that process equipment company Veeco Instruments was intending to acquire Ultratech for $815 million.

On a GAAP basis, Ultratech's net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was $3.0 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, as compared to net loss of $1.2 million, or $(0.04) per share, for the same quarter last year.

On a non-GAAP basis, Ultratech's net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was $9.7 million, or $0.35 per share, as compared to net income of $2.7 million, or $0.10 per share, for the same quarter last year.

Arthur W. Zafiropoulo, chairman and CEO, stated: "Our first quarter results illustrate our market leading technology position, combined with the strong positive leverage in our business model. Sales grew by 27 percent versus the prior year, resulting in a 250 percent increase in non-GAAP earnings per share. 

"Robust demand for our laser spike annealing, and advanced packaging product lines drove strong bookings momentum, generating a book-to-bill ratio of more than 1 to 1. Ultratech's portfolio of advanced products continue to meet the existing and future needs of the various industries that we serve."

At April 1, 2017, Ultratech had $274.2 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. Working capital was $356.3 million and stockholders' equity was $13.08 per share based on 27,236,174 total shares outstanding as of April 1, 2017.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
