BEVERLY, Mass., July 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Axcelis Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: ACLS), a leading supplier of enabling ion implantation solutions for the semiconductor industry, today announced preliminary financial results for the second quarter of 2024. The Company now expects revenue to be greater than $252 million, and diluted earnings per share to be greater than $1.38, compared to the Company's previously issued revenue guidance of $245 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.30. In addition, the Company continues to expect second half performance to be stronger than the first half, slightly weighted towards the fourth quarter.

Systems revenue was better than we anticipated, partly due to better conversion of evaluation systems to revenue.
