SAN FRANCISCO, July 8 Chip gear maker KLA-Tencor Corp said on Tuesday its bookings in the fiscal fourth quarter were close to $895 million or $900 million, higher than expected and helped by demand from contract chip manufacturers.
KLA-Tencor said at an event with investors that in the quarter, which ended in June, contract manufacturers accounted for two-thirds of its business.
In April, KLA-Tencor said that it expected bookings in the June quarter in a range between $625 million to $825 million.
The company will provide its full quarterly report later in July. (Reporting by Noel Randewich; Editing by Jonathan Oatis)
