Advanced Energy grows revenue more than 30 percent year over year

FORT COLLINS — Advanced Energy Industries Inc. (Nasdaq: AEIS) posted first-quarter earnings of $1.16 per share, or $46.4 million.

The Fort Collins-based company, which makes power technologies and solutions, posted quarterly revenue of $195.6 million, a 31 percent year-over-year increase and beating expectations by $7.7 million.

“Carrying on the momentum seen in 2017, first quarter semiconductor revenue again reached record levels while our Industrial business soared to new historical highs due to the rapid adoption of our advanced technology and expanding geographical presence,” said Yuval Wasserman, president and CEO of Advanced Energy, in a prepared statement. “Our diversification strategy is working – producing strong results – as we continue to execute on our strategic plan towards our aspirational goals.
