VIENNA (Reuters) – Printed circuit boards maker AT&S said on Thursday that core profit and revenue in its current first quarter were on the previous year’s level after posting a 22% decline for the financial year due to investments in its expansion.
Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) reached 194.5 million euros ($210 million) on revenue of 1.0 billion euros in the business year through end-March.
The company, which produces circuit boards for smartphones and tablets and supplies firms such as Apple, Intel and major European auto suppliers, shied away from a forecast for the full year, saying it would provide one as soon as it was possible to better assess the economic environment.
