MIGDAL HAEMEK, Israel, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Camtek Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: CAMT), today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

  • Positive operating cash flow of $600 thousand in the quarter
  • Second quarter revenue guidance of $23-25 million

Roy Porat, Camtek ' s Chief Executive Officer, commented, "As we move into the second quarter, we are seeing that the recovery already observed in the front-end last quarter finally reached the back-end part of the semiconductor capital equipment industry. We believe that as we move through the year this recovery will eventually extend to the PCB sector, which will further contribute to our growth this year."

Continued Mr. Porat, "I am pleased with the recent strong demand from the market for our products, which gives us confidence looking ahead, and this underlies our revenue guidance for the upcoming quarter. We believe revenues for the second quarter will range between $23-25 million, representing over 30% sequential growth, accordingly we expect the business to return to profitability."
