"Veeco executed well in the third quarter, delivering revenue above the top end of our guidance range and generating positive adjusted EBITDA and cash flows from operations," commented John R. Peeler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are seeing a clear improvement in LED industry conditions and solid demand for our MOCVD products. We continue to win LED lighting and display opportunities with our TurboDisc® EPIK™700 Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition ("MOCVD") system and expand our positions in red, orange and yellow LEDs with our TurboDisc® K475i™ Arsenic Phosphide ("As/P") system.

"We remain focused on improving the Company's through-cycle profitability. We are executing against our cost reduction initiatives, including our recently announced plans to significantly reduce investments in Atomic Layer Deposition ("ALD") technology development. These actions are expected to lower our quarterly adjusted EBITDA breakeven level to approximately $75 million in revenue, starting in the first quarter of 2017. Overall, I'm pleased with our ongoing execution and the positive momentum of our business looking ahead," Mr. Peeler concluded.
