Revenues at September 30, 2020 came to €17.5m, down 15% from September 30, 2019.

MBE systems revenues totaled €9.5m, down 26%, following the deferral of deliveries linked to the pandemic context. During the first nine months, five systems - including three production units - were delivered, compared with six systems - including five production units – at September 30, 2019.

Evaporator revenues remained sluggish due to the current lack of investment in OLED screen production equipment.

Revenues for services and accessories climbed 14% to €7.9m, driven by a sustained level of commercial activity, especially with the installed base.

At end-September 2020, the breakdown of revenues was as follows: 39% for Europe, 43% for Asia, 12% for North America and 6% for other countries.

The order book at September 30, 2020 totaled €18.2m, down 31% from September 30, 2019.

The systems business continued to be impacted by the increase in decision times by clients and export licenses applications, with an order book contracting 57% to €8.7m, including five systems - with one production unit - to be delivered during the last quarter of 2020. However, the portfolio of prospects is at a historically high level.

The services and accessories business is confirming its robust commercial development, with an order book of €9.5m, up 56% year-on-year, taking into account the good level of orders recorded during the third quarter of 2020.
