• Revenue stable at EUR 13.2 million in 2019 compared to 2018
• Substantial increase in revenue in second half over first half of 2019
• Industrial sector increased to 50% of total revenue
Deventer, 23rd January 2020 – RoodMicrotec N.V., a leading independent company for semiconductors supply and quality services, today publishes the unaudited preliminary revenue for the full-year 2019. The unaudited preliminary revenue for 2019 is stable compared to 2018 at EUR 13.2 million with a substantial increase in the second half compared to both the first half of 2019 and the second half of 2018. The Test Operations business unit shows a steady increase and continues to run at a good utilization level and the Qualification & Failure Analysis business unit reports a revenue increase in the second half of 2019 thanks to new customer engagements.
The decrease in revenue in the Supply Chain Management business unit compared to 2018 is mainly due to the cancelled customer project which had started to ramp in the fourth quarter of 2018 but was stopped at the end of 2018. Without this project, the revenue of this business unit is maintained at a stable level with a positive view of the coming years based on new customer orders.
“In 2019, RoodMicrotec showed that it can maintain a steady level of revenue in a declining market. Both the impact of challenging market conditions in the automotive sector as well as the decline of semiconductor business during 2019 have had an impact on us but we managed to outperform the market with a stable revenue compared to 2018”, said Martin Sallenhag, CEO of RoodMicrotec.
Sales by business unit in 2019 compared to 2018:
(x € 1,000) 2019 2018 Change
Test Operations 6,482 6,060 +7%
Supply Chain Management 3,131 3,283 -5%
Qualification & Failure Analysis 3,604 4,082 -12%
TOTAL 13,217 13,425 -1.5%
Based on several new engagements as well as an increasing number of ASIC supply chain projects in the pipeline, RoodMicrotec expects an organic revenue growth rate in the range of 8 to 12% per year with yearly improving positive net results.
