First Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Revenues for the first quarter of 2011 increased 56% to $27.5 million, compared to $17.6 million in the first quarter of 2010. Revenues grew 8% sequentially, and came in slightly above the formerly issued guidance range of between $25-27 million. The ongoing growth is as a result of the continued increase in demand from customers as well as the penetration into new customers and increasing sales of the Company's new products.

Gross profit on a GAAP basis in the quarter totaled $12.8 million (46.6% of revenues), compared with $7.0 million (40% of revenues) in the first quarter of 2010.

Operating income on a GAAP basis in the quarter was $3.0 million (10.8% of revenues) compared with an operating loss of $0.4 million in the first quarter of 2010. Non-GAAP operating income was $3.1 million (11.5% of revenues) in the quarter compared with an operating loss of $0.1 million in the first quarter of 2010.

Net income on a GAAP basis in the first quarter of 2011 totaled $2.4 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.9 million, or a loss of $0.03 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2010.

Net income on a non-GAAP basis in the first quarter of 2011 was $3.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $0.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2010.

Cash and cash equivalents levels as of March 31, 2011 were $9.2 million with an additional amount of $5.2 million in restricted cash compared with $9.6 million and $5.2 million restricted cash at December 31, 2010.

Management Comment

Roy Porat, Camtek's Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We are very pleased with our strong results and it is a great start for 2011. This quarter's success was the result of our continuous efforts in reshaping our business that started eight quarters ago and has resulted in gradual growth since then. The growth has cemented our sound position in our legacy inspection businesses in the back-end semiconductor and PCB industries. We are also now moving from proving feasibility to actually establishing a position with our new front-end semiconductor inspection and sample preparation product lines."

Mr. Porat concluded: "For the second quarter of 2011, we anticipate flat to moderate growth with revenues of between $27-29 million."
