Mattson Technology, Inc. (MTSN) designs, manufactures, and markets semiconductor wafer processing equipment used in the fabrication of integrated circuits and chips. The company is a supplier of dry strip and rapid thermal processing (RTP) equipment to the global semiconductor industry. The company’s customer base is diversified geographically and includes foundries, memory and logic device manufacturers. Due to this diversification, MTSN is not as susceptible to semiconductor cyclicality.
Dear Sir, this is laxmi and i have done BCA and i have aelippd for data entry operator. i have good typing speed.thanks
The company's four largest customers account for over 50% of the company's revenues. This concentration of revenue adds to the riskiness of the company since any one of the four may cease to employ MTSN as its provider. In addition, South Korea provides 49% of the company's revenues and despite the company's headquarters in California - the global capital of semiconductors - only 5% of the company's sales come from the United States. While being diversified internationally, MTSN focuses on outside of the most lucrative semiconductor market, reducing its profitability.
Despite being diversified geographically and industry-wise, MTSN's performance is tied to the ups and downs of the semiconductor industry, an industry that is notoriously cyclical. The semiconductor industry is affected by the fluctuating demand for PCs and cell phones, and by the rest of the electronics market. The demand in up cycles is so high that the chip manufacturers can't keep up. Similarly, if electronic sales, particularly PC sales, are slow, demand for chips can plummet. The semiconductor industry is at the whim of consumer demand more than corporate demand. This fact also adds to volatility in demand. If semiconductor companies anticipate a downturn in the industry then MTSNwill likely feel the pressure from capital expenditure cutbacks.
I can't believe you're not playing with me--that was so hlepufl.
