“Our outlook for the second quarter of 2011 is being strongly influenced by the timing of shipments to one of our major solar customers. This customer has advised its suppliers that equipment deliveries have been put on hold. We expect that the terms of the order will be met in the very near future with shipments starting in the third or fourth quarter of this year. The delay in the execution of this order relates to a major part of the in-line diffusion equipment orders we announced this past January.
“Excluding the potential impact of this delay, we are on plan for a revenue level similar to our first quarter. However, a delay in planned shipments to this major customer could reduce second quarter revenues to a level of $17 to $18 million. The timing of shipments of this order might affect our overall rate of growth for this year.
“We have strong confidence in the high potential for the in-line diffusion business. Our systems are successfully running in volume production,” concluded van der Wansem.
