"Veeco's first quarter sales were above seasonal average and increased by more than 20% year-over-year, reflecting a recovery in LED industry conditions. We are continuing to build backlog and see a healthy sales pipeline, which supports top line growth in the second half of 2017. Our Q1 gross margin reflects, among other factors, the temporary impact of our manufacturing consolidation efforts. We now expect to complete these plans in the third quarter. We believe our consolidation efforts combined with sustained cost discipline will drive positive operating leverage, as revenues scale," commented John R. Peeler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
"In addition, we are pleased with the progress we've made towards completing the Ultratech acquisition, which we expect to close in late May. Integration planning is well under way and we expect to hit the ground running on day one," Mr. Peeler concluded.
