News

Revenues dropped to $99.0 million, compared with $139.7 million in Q4 2017

Veeco Instruments has announced financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.

Revenues of $99.0 million, compared with $139.7 million in the same period last year, GAAP net loss of $144.7 million, or $3.11 loss per diluted share, and non-GAAP net loss of $7.5 million, or $0.16 loss per diluted share

"Commoditisation of the MOCVD market for LEDs in China has reduced our revenue significantly, and is reflected in our fourth quarter results,” commented William J.
