II-VI Announces Record Bookings For Q3 2016

Company reports bookings of $235 million and shipments of $205 million

US semiconductor laser company II-VI has reported results for its third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2016, with record bookings of $235 million and record shipments of $205 million. The recently completed acquisitions of EpiWorks and Anadigics are not included in these results.

GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.24 increased 4 percent compared to Q3 2015. Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.35 increased 52 percent compared to Q3 2015

Francis J. Kramer, chairman and CEO, said: "Our continued solid operating results, including bookings and margin, validate our strategy of investing in businesses with market leading products and vertically integrated worldwide manufacturing operations.

"With our acquisitions and investments to commence next quarter, we are accelerating the build out of a scalable semiconductor VCSEL laser platform. II-VI Photonics delivered a robust quarter, particularly from the optical communication markets. Our record bookings this quarter indicate that we expect to end the fourth quarter strong."

The outlook for operations without acquisition effects (non-GAAP) for the fourth fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2016 is revenue of $200 million to $210 million and earnings per share of $0.25 to $0.29. 

On a consolidated basis, revenue is expected to be between $210 million to $225 million and earnings per share is expected to be $0.22 to $0.24, excluding one-time items and the effects of our actions underway to improve operating efficiencies.

Comparable results for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 were revenues of $196.7 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.27. 

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.
