Bezons, January 28, 2020 – 5:45pm – RIBER, a global market leader for semiconductor industry equipment, is today reporting its full-year revenues for 2019.

RIBER recorded a fourth consecutive year of growth. Full-year revenues came to €33.4m for 2019, up 7% compared to 2018.

Systems revenues climbed to €23m, with 140% year-on-year growth. In 2019, 12 machines, including seven production and five research units, were delivered, compared with six machines in 2018, including three production and three research units.

Evaporator revenues totaled €1.0m, a significant contraction linked to the end of the previous investment cycle for OLED display production equipment in 2018.

Services and accessories revenues remained at a satisfactory level of €9.4m, down 7% from 2018, due to a billing delay over 2020.

The breakdown of full-year revenues for 2019 was as follows: 32% for Europe, 52% for Asia and 16% for North America.

The success of MBE machines linked to the 5G development offsets the temporary lack of investment in the OLED display industry.

Outlook for 2020

These elements offer a good level of visibility for RIBER’s business in 2020. They are supported by the positive outlook for new orders in a general environment that is favorable for the semiconductor market. In this context, RIBER plans to consolidate its revenue in 2020.
