J.S. Whang, Chief Executive Officer of Amtech, commented, “For the third quarter, we achieved a fifth consecutive quarter of record revenue, reflecting our technology leadership in high efficiency solar diffusion, and continued strong bottom line results that further demonstrate our operational capability to manage and service the high growth cycles of the solar market. While our order pipeline has slowed significantly given the near-term uncertainty in the broader PV market, we maintain a healthy backlog of $140 million, remain on track to produce and ship at a significant volume in the September quarter, and expect to achieve our full-year revenue guidance for fiscal 2011. During this solar down cycle, we are intensifying our efforts to increase our diffusion market share and execute on our key solar development programs, including our solar ion implant project.”
