Q3 revenue was $25.5 million, compared with $22.1 million Q2 2020 and $19.8 million in Q3 2019.

AXT, a US manufacturer of compound semiconductor substrates, has reported financial results for the third quarter, ended September 30, 2020.

"We are pleased to report 28 percent year-over-year revenue growth in Q3 and earnings above our guidance range,"ˇ said Morris Young, chief executive officer. "These results were driven by meaningful contribution from strategic applications such as 5G telecommunications, passive optical networks, and data center connectivity, where our InP substrates play an important role in enabling ongoing technological advancement.

"We are excited to see so many of the applications and customer opportunities for which we have been preparing over the last two years beginning to take shape. With our GaAs manufacturing relocation largely complete and the success of our efforts visible in customer acceptance, our new facilities are poised to be a cornerstone of our growth and market differentiation."
