CEO statement and outlook

"Our second-quarter net sales came in at €6.9 billion, at the high end of our guidance, with a gross margin of 51.3%, higher than guided, primarily driven by additional DUV immersion revenue in the quarter.


"Our customers across different market segments are currently more cautious due to continued macro-economic uncertainties, and therefore expect a later recovery of their markets. Also, the shape of the recovery slope is still unclear. However, our strong backlog of around €38 billion provides us with a good basis to navigate these short-term uncertainties.


"We expect third-quarter net sales between €6.5 billion and €7.0 billion with a gross margin of around 50%. ASML expects R&D costs of around €1.0 billion and SG&A costs of around €285 million. Due to strong DUV revenue and despite the increased uncertainties, ASML expects strong growth for 2023 with a net sales increase towards 30% and a slight improvement in gross margin, relative to 2022," said ASML President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Wennink.
