At September 30, 2017, RIBER’s revenues came to €15.2 million, up 87%. This strong growth reflects the high level of sales of evaporators (cells and sources) for the photovoltaic and screen industries, as well as the solid trends for sales of services and accessories.

In terms of MBE systems, two research machines were billed over nine months, compared with two machines, including one production unit, for the same period in 2016.

The breakdown of revenues for the first nine months of 2017 was as follows: 50% for Asia, 34% for Europe and 16% for North America.

system orders announced in October.

In view of these elements, RIBER is confirming its full-year targets, with revenues of close to €30 million for 2017 and at least €3.0 million in income from ordinary operations.
