revenues, we delivered on the bottom line and achieved non-GAAP net income of
$0.09 per diluted share, which exceeded our revised guidance range. Our
business model is strong and when we complete our current qualifications and
our customers transition to new nodes we expect robust top- and bottom-line
growth." The Full Research Report on Photronics Inc. - including full detailed
