Whang, Amtech’s Executive Chairman, Fokko Pentinga, our President and Chief Executive Officer and myself Brad Anderson, Chief Financial Officer.
After the close of trading today, Amtech released its financial results for the quarter ending June 30, 2012. The release is posted on the company’s website at amtechsystems.com.
During today’s call, management will make forward-looking statements. All such forward-looking statements are based on information available to us as of this date and we assume no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results could differ materially from current expectations.
Among the important factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements are changes in the technologies used by our customers and competitors, change in volatility and a demand for our products, the effect of changing worldwide political and economic conditions on government funded solar initiatives, capital expenditures, production levels, including those in Europe and Asia, the effect of overall market conditions, including the equity and credit markets and market acceptance risk. Other risk factors are detailed in the company’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings in including its Form 10-K and Form 10-Q.
