PITTSBURGH, May 1, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — II-VI Incorporated (Nasdaq:IIVI) (“II-VI” or the “Company”) today reported results for its fiscal third quarter ended March 31, 2019.
“We delivered another solid quarter of performance with another record backlog. Growth was widespread in the quarter across both our core and growth markets. In our core markets, we saw the leading edge of the global deployment of 5G accelerate and drive strong demand for our products. We saw particular strength from ROADM demand, which grew well over 50% compared to Q3 of last year,” said Dr. Vincent D. (Chuck) Mattera, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer. “For the military end market, we acquired Redstone Aerospace, an entrepreneurial firm with unique capabilities in defense-related applications as we continue our investment in the emerging high-energy laser market. The industrial end market was steady.”
“In our growth markets, the quarter’s performance was also driven by very strong growth in EUV and SiC, both of which now have expanded capacity in place. In 3D sensing, we expect to see increases in shipments in the second half of this calendar year and we have achieved an important design win in an Android platform. Our global II-VI teams made great progress on the integration planning of the Finisar acquisition. We are looking forward to final regulatory approval from China, which we still believe will occur mid-year 2019.”
