Amtech Achieves $100 Million Total Bookings Milestone in Fiscal 2008

Tempe, AZ | Posted on October 6th, 2008

Amtech Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASYS), a global supplier of production and automation systems and related supplies for the manufacture of solar cells, semiconductors, and silicon wafers, today announced that it has booked over $100 million in orders for its solar and semiconductor products in fiscal 2008 ended September 30th, with solar orders approximating 70% of total bookings.

J.S. Whang, President and Chief Executive Officer of Amtech, commented, "With the $9.0 million in follow-on solar orders we announced on September 15th, we have achieved a very significant milestone in the history of Amtech in surpassing $100 million in total solar and semiconductor orders in fiscal 2008. To put this achievement in perspective, total orders in fiscal 2007 were $56 million, including $21 million of solar orders. This milestone was reached on the strength of our solar products and in spite of a downturn in the semiconductor industry and the recent weakening of the Euro, compared to last quarter. We are very proud of all of the members of our Amtech team who have contributed to this significant achievement."
