MINNEAPOLIS -- CyberOptics Corporation (Nasdaq: CYBE) today reported that it is forecasting revenues of $18.6-$19.1 million and strong profitability for the first quarter of 2016 ended March 31, compared to revenues of $9.5 million in the first quarter of 2015.
First quarter revenues include approximately $2.5 million from the year-end 2015 backlog of MX600 memory module inspection systems and strong sales of SQ3000 automated optical inspection (AOI) systems.
