RoodMicrotec: Trading update - Start of production of major contract brought forward

PRESS RELEASE

Zwolle - 11 May 2016

Sales in the first quarter matched the 2016 outlook, with one positive
highlight and a few minor negatives.

Already in the first quarter we are seeing electronic applications increasing
fast in number and complexity, especially in our focus markets, the
automotive and industrial markets. This means for us that one of our big
contracts is going into production significantly ahead of expectation, and
will therefore contribute positively to our sales already in 2017. Some
smaller projects, however, encountered minor delays in the first quarter of
2016.

The newest generation of testing equipment for high-grade more complex chips
that we purchased earlier this year, an additional V93k mixed signal testing
system and a 12" wafer prober, are already in the engineering phase /
production set-up. These are mainly production set-ups for the automotive
industry (conventional and electric cars) and the industrial market (IoT).

'That one of our big contracts is going into production some months ahead of
schedule means a major sales impulse, but also a big impulse for the
organisation as a whole. We are active in key growth markets and have
succeeded in positioning ourselves well within them,' said CEO Philip
Nijenhuis, CTO Martin Sallenhag and CSO Reinhard Pusch.

Outlook 2016

As a result of new announced arrangements early 2016 and the contracts
announced in 2015, RoodMicrotec expects that turnover will increase
substantially in the coming years. We expect that in 2020 our turnover will
approximately be 75% higher compared to the total turnover of over EUR 10
million in 2015.

Given the increased order value and other positive signals for 2016, we
maintain our expected increase for turnover in 2016, as we mentioned in our
press release 10 March 2016, to the upper end of the market growth range (7%
to 12%).
