FACE="Times New Roman" SIZE="2">Competition

The market for intelligent automation products is highly competitive. We compete with a number of robot
companies, motion control companies, and machine vision companies. Many of these companies are larger or have more resources than Adept. Many of our competitors in the robot market are integrated manufacturers of products that produce robotics
equipment internally for their own use and may also compete with our products for sales to other customers. The basis for competition typically centers on price and performance. We believe that we favorably compete on the basis of higher
performance, additional capabilities, greater combination of speed, precision and flexibility, and better support of our product line.

Our principal
competitors in the SCARA robot and linear modules markets (including our Adept Cobra and Adept Python robots) include subsidiaries of Japanese companies, including Epson Corporation, Yamaha Corporation, Denso Corporation and IAI America, Inc. We
also compete with a small group of European companies, principally Stäubli Corporation. Adept robots are differentiated by integrating more sophisticated controls and vision technology along with embedded controls.

STYLE="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:0px">In the 6-axis robot market where we sell our AdeptViper robots, we compete with the above companies, as well as manufacturers of 6-axis robots including ABB
Robotics division, FANUC Robotics, Inc., and Motoman, Inc. In the 6-Axis robot market, Adept offers strong performance and more sophisticated controls and software.

FACE="Times New Roman" SIZE="2">In the machine vision market, our primary competition is from Cognex Corporation. Cognex Corporation has a broader, more extensive product line than Adept, but is focused on machine vision only.

STYLE="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:0px">In the parallel robot market, the primary competition for our Adept Quattro robot comes from ABB Robotics division and FANUC Robotics. The Adept Quattro robot offers
higher performance and a more compact control solution than its competing products.
