MIGDAL HAEMEK, Israel, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Camtek Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: CAMT), today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.
Highlights of the First Quarter 2012
Roy Porat, Camtek's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "As we move into the second quarter, we are seeing that the recovery already observed in the front-end last quarter finally reached the back-end part of the semiconductor capital equipment industry. We believe that as we move through the year this recovery will eventually extend to the PCB sector, which will further contribute to our growth this year."
Continued Mr. Porat, "I am pleased with the recent strong demand from the market for our products, which gives us confidence looking ahead, and this underlies our revenue guidance for the upcoming quarter. We believe revenues for the second quarter will range between $23-25 million, representing over 30% sequential growth, accordingly we expect the business to return to profitability."

Use of non-GAAP Measures
This press release provides financial measures that exclude certain items such as : (i) amortization of acquired intangible assets and revaluation of liabilities with respect to the acquisitions of Sela and Printar; and (ii) share based compensation expenses.and are therefore not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Management believes that these Non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures when evaluating the business internally and therefore felt it is important to make these non-GAAP adjustments available to investors.A reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP results appears in the tables at the end of this press release.
