Zwolle - 12 April 2018
- First quarter sales rises 17% compared to Q1 2017
- Significant increase in sales revenue in Supply Chain Management and Test Operations
- Good position for continuing growth of business
RoodMicrotec N.V., the leading independent company for semiconductors supply and quality services, reports a 17% year-on-year increase in sales revenue, due to its strong order backlog and high utilization rate. Revenues significantly increased in the business units Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Test Operations. This is due to the moving of long-term projects into production and thus, generating revenue in both of these areas. New projects are also coming up, which will enable the company to continue its business growth in all areas. In view of the positive start of the year, RoodMicrotec is now in a good position to continue the business growth and maintain its path towards profitability.
Martin Sallenhag, CEO: "It's very encouraging to see the new strategy paying off. The increase in SCM enables significant growth in the other business units, especially Test Operations. We are continuing to prepare ourselves for future revenue increases by cautiously recruiting new staff in strategic areas such as Failure Analysis and Test Operations. We also keep reviewing all our operating expenses to maintain the lean operation we now have in place."
RoodMicrotec expects a continuing revenue increase over the next years and projects the revenue in 2020 to be approximately EUR 18 million. The results will continue to improve and the company expects to report yearly positive net results.
