RIBER announces a slight increase in activity in 2018

Riber's revenues in 2018 amounted to € 31.3 million, an increase of 2.3%. The manufacturer of the semiconductor industry highlighted the unfavorable base effect with an increase of 86% in 2017. The system's revenues amounted to EUR 9.6 million, representing an increase of 33% in the delivery delay of two MBE machines to be invoiced in the first quarter of 2019 as indicated in a press release dated January 10. In 2018, 6 machines were billed, including 3 production, compared to 5 machines in 2017, including 2 production.

The volume of vaporizers was 11.6 million euros, a decrease of 19%. As in 2017, it focuses primarily on the Asian client.

Revenues for services and accessories amounted to EUR 10.1 million, an increase of 12%. It reflects the desire to regularly develop this activity, which greatly contributes to the gross margin.

The annual turnover in 2018 is divided between Europe (49%), Asia (43%) and North America (8%).

Given the high level of charged orders for 2019, Riber expects a new year of revenue growth. Failure to meet the commitments as at 31 December 2018 amounted to EUR 29.9 million, an increase of 16%. This stems in particular from "a very good level of procurement in 2018".
