Management Discussion
  • Revenue for the March 2021 quarter increased 11% from the December 2020 quarter, reflecting increased customer spending on capital equipment and services.
  • Please refer to Note 3, “Revenue,” to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of this Form 10-Q for additional information regarding the composition of the two categories into which revenue has been disaggregated.
  • Gross margin as a percentage of revenue was lower in the March 2021 quarter compared to the December 2020 quarter primarily as a result of higher manufacturing-related spending and higher employee-related costs, partially offset by favorable changes in customer and product mix.
