ORBOTECH LTD. (NASDAQ: ORBK) (the "Company") today announced its consolidated financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016.

Commenting on the results, Asher Levy, Chief Executive Officer, said: "Our fourth quarter results marked a strong finish to a very successful year for Orbotech.  In 2016, we posted record revenues on both annual and quarterly bases, as well as year over year growth and improved profitability in each of our three principal operating divisions.  We generated significant cash from operations, enhanced our balance sheet, strengthened our competitive position in all major business areas and continued to implement our growth strategy.  As we enter 2017, we feel encouraged by positive industry trends, such as growth in flexible OLED manufacturing, increased electronic content in smartphones and automobiles and progress in advanced packaging and MEMS.  We expect significant revenue contribution from new products launched during 2016.  These solutions, together with our ongoing research and development efforts, are not only an important ingredient of our future growth, but should increase our total addressable market and create new opportunities for the Company, while at the same time strengthening our position as an enabler of critical technologies for the manufacture of future electronic products and devices.  We expect our results in 2017 to be more backend loaded compared to previous years, due to timing of deliveries, and that the estimated revenues in the first quarter will be the lowest during 2017.  Overall, we expect favorable industry trends, as well as our technological leadership and longstanding relationships with key designers and manufacturers, to lead to revenue growth and ongoing profitability improvement during 2017."
