Publication of the Preliminary Order Intake for the First Quarter 2017 and Increase of the Sales and EBIT Expectation for the Full Fiscal Year 2017

Garching, April 3, 2017 - In an announcement dated March 21, 2017, SUSS MicroTec reported an expected increase in order intake for the first quarter of 2017. The original order intake guidance for the first quarter 2017 was increased from a bandwidth of EUR 25 million - EUR 35 million to a bandwidth of EUR 35 million - EUR 45 million. The preliminary order intake for the first quarter 2017 amounts to approximately EUR 45 million (previous year: EUR 33.1 million), which is at the upper end of the bandwidth given on March 21, 2017.

For the current fiscal year, the Company guided sales to be in the range of EUR 160 million - EUR 170 million and an EBIT (earnings before interest and income taxes) to be in the range of EUR 9 million - EUR 13 million. Due to the increased order intake in the first quarter of 2017, the Company increases its sales and earnings expectations for the full fiscal year 2017. Sales are now expected in a range of EUR 170 million - EUR 180 million and EBIT in a range of EUR 13 million to EUR 17 million. Sales in the previous year came in at EUR 177.6 million and EBIT stood at EUR 11.1 million.

The final number for order intake for the first quarter 2017 might deviate from the preliminary number given above. The final figures for the first quarter 2017 will be published on May 4, 2017.
