SINGAPORE (May 8): Ellipsiz, the probe card and solutions provider to the semiconductor manufacturing industry, reported a 21% fall in earnings for the nine months ended March to $4.6 million from a year ago.
Revenue of the group declined 2% at $86.8 million for 9M17 compared to $88.5 million in 9M16. Revenue from Distribution & Services solution (DSS) decreased by 6%, while Probe Card solutions (PCS) was relatively flat.
Ellipsiz says PCS saw good revenue growth in Japan and Singapore although its activities in Taiwan slowed down after a few quarters of good growth. DSS recorded a sizeable order in the second quarter of FY16 but no similar order was received during the current financial period, thus leading to the lower DSS revenue.
