RoodMicrotec, the Dutch supplier of semiconductors and advanced microchips, can look back on a successful year. It
achieved 16% higher revenue in 2017 compared with 2016, confirming the positive trend as forecasted. The company also
increased its revenue in the second half of 2017 by 8% in comparison to the first half of 2017.

the second half of 2017. It has also built the foundation for more Supply Chain Management business (SCM), which will
strongly contribute to revenue increase in 2018 and beyond.

comparison to 2017. The high economic growth in all our five business units confirms our strategy and service portfolio. Due
to our good reputation, acquisition of new customers and new projects we start 2018 with a historically high order backlog"
