- Positive net result in the first half of 2019
- Revenue of EUR 6.4 million with significant growth in Supply Chain Management
- Book‐to‐bill ratio maintained consistently at a level above one


RoodMicrotec N.V., a leading independent company for semiconductors supply and quality services, today released its unaudited interim report for the first half‐year ending on June 30th, 2019. The company reports a positive net result of EUR 5,000 despite the decline in revenue and the weak market situation.

The gross profit margin is maintained at a consistent high level of 79%, which is in line with expectations due to the increasing supply chain management business. The strongest leading indicator for future business growth, the book‐to‐bill ratio, is stable at above one. The revenue for the first half of 2019 was EUR 6.4 million, 7% lower than for the first half of 2018, with an increase of 12% from the first quarter to the second quarter in 2019. Supply Chain Management is showing a revenue increase, which is encouraging and shows that the overall strategy for the company is paying off ‐ also under difficult market conditions. Test Operations is maintaining a constant level and the decrease in Qualification & Failure Analysis is mainly due to the customer initiated phase out of production burn‐in.

"We are pleased with our performance so far and proud to report a positive net result for the first‐half of 2019 even though the market situation is challenging. This demonstrates that RoodMicrotec's strategy as well as the commitment of our employees continue to drive the company's future growth", says Martin Sallenhag, CEO of RoodMicrotec.

During the annual general meeting of shareholders held on May 23rd, 2019, RoodMicrotec announced that the present auditor, Baker Tilly, has decided to stop auditing listed companies. The search for a new auditor is progressing. Due to the limited number of audit firms licensed in the Netherlands to audit listed companies, we experience that it is challenging for a small listed company like RoodMicrotec to find an audit firm that is willing to accept the audit engagement for a new client, especially when this should be completed until April 2020.
