News

"Results continue to underscore the gathering momentum of the technology mega trends," says CEO Morris Young

AXT, a manufacturer of compound semiconductor wafer substrates, has reported financial results for the third quarter, ended September 30, 2021.

“Our third quarter and year-to-date revenue results continue to underscore the gathering momentum of the technology mega trends that our substrates help to enable - trends such as 5G telecommunications, data centre upgrades, health monitoring, the internet of everything, and the proliferation of LED lighting and display,” said Morris Young, chief executive officer.

“Year to date, we have increased revenue by 46 percent over the same period in 2020. With our new, expanded manufacturing facilities, we are able to accommodate increasing demand across these applications and others, while meeting the stringent technical requirements of Tier-1 customers. As such, 2021 is unfolding to be a pivotal year for our business. And as we look ahead, we believe 2022 will be another year of strong growth, with existing applications continuing to mature, and new ones being layered on to the current demand.”

STAR Market Listing Update

AXT previously announced on November 16, 2020 a strategic plan to access China's capital markets and progress to an initial public offering by Beijing Tongmei Xtal Technology Co., Ltd, its company in China, on the Shanghai Stock Exchange's Sci-Tech innovAtion boaRd (the STAR Market). The company is currently preparing required documents for submission to the STAR Market authorities.

The process of going public on the STAR Market includes several periods of review and, therefore, is a lengthy process. Tongmei expects to accomplish this goal in mid-2022.
