Good your for you're printers. taking with And side call. everything my healthcare for morning, the on you doing thank thanks

this you're process demand want to up the to going out you're and to know just caller, a of on Just opening There's some economy want you're to previous or somewhat how what temperature as right the were going take conversations up. back follow-up your the hearing conversations is have is - just real-time - ramp seeing now? weekly there just dynamic where happening,

John Hartner

again, and the diversity. advantage Yes, of of one the I'd diversity Doug say mentioned geographic

Europe and is, we in and then saw this U.S. starting So the Asia then this

And in geographies this speeds ways, out are coming some different at of different obviously. so

The which but other would bit for the I three I've a happened say with it initial was U.S. an last touch that that there what weeks. little in happened on maybe a alluded I to two is day-to-day particularly spending, was - response shutdown closer time capital that or basis, thing

through marketing equipment future has And then customers even that they as and roadmaps, the have, our and the leads and being their had, to plans ensued. our customer recognized those particularly their been facing remote again, is significant that ways, understood side, on that and we've interactions coming. team tied customers and in our Again, discussions roadmaps got with some capital effective,

phenomenon. that is there So,

time. having ownership production customer to with those opportunity there's in the the at should maybe based closer and slide, the I I the this, overplay more chain cost to decentralised all there my don't supply to And these of discussions printing my reconfigured. as binder current but then, be startup we're is of of about and look discussions want mentioned production And the last start jet

also thing So cetera. impact, I level that's a again, weighing countries. And discussions Japanese thing that's but various into thing, an or the a that's not German conversations think and Italian U.S. or a solely not a around probably short-term board et thing the that's

Chris Van Horn

Thanks that things? And disruptions or color. any about affecting it, interruptions have for how are Got that okay. supply seen your then chain, you

John Hartner

on So very thanks, of not primarily did had we subassemblies this that. concern look We've supply or supply been is inside provide been was Initially, that that buy. of or we have We're since on have customer electronics at we feel to incoming early assured we there. by and supply base out monitor. control We've also and consumables our continue that either systems that looked may for that. chain our our there have embedded any adequate disruptions we our chemistries

the responded supply either in in Frankly, the domestic most in well. U.S. chain of chain Europe So, Western our has supply or yes is

John Hartner

So has little we there's about material been talked a pricing - a consumable think the pricing couple number calls side. a prior been pressure areas, I little - There in bit we materials pressure. bit of some on the of one,

this historically in probably a bit than introduced The are machine. early machine discreet models going XX the to Our margins pro bit experienced types. what of the are and particular varies we machines just on of period quarter, there.

Jed Dorsheimer

So with breakdown to side? the the tool the was on respect business, geographic what

John Hartner

of increase performance We bit to which U.S., XX%. represented the in an relative normal about saw a little

were sort of regions about evenly split two XX/XX. other The

Jed Dorsheimer

the the equally that assuming, that and the timing Europe? the I'm the as coming from just to pandemic? of spread or is up forward question ask but restrictions set travel between Asia Is you is Asia look it I'd that are mostly result rather and hampering

John Hartner

a equally spread. from continued We and broadly to that We much starting the detriment. do China, pretty a we into to can bit out systems been up Japan-to-Japan and into exists been currently that do more do see lot shut transactions, be few of the there, we've to China. We're we're movement that. of limited may a although Europe-to-Europe signs it's Asia of but opening hadn't have transactions has So selling a

biggest so that's And probably the effect.

Jed Dorsheimer

Got it.

not should the quarters cost million other that When affect guidance and Okay. cost of again, for in put place, million there you've John like a exercise, at would like OpEx Or a structure? getting the that. just I three those or reductions $XX levels? just on 'XX, this with I are that anything $X to nuances is just in for cost structure, just if the we kind take assume, XXXX million, the flat of look $XX is at

John Hartner

really to a that bit then up how as we some flexibility allocation I on We G&A so. bring R&D little it by less be the on ends people the because intensive short spread Germany bit terms dividing we've based No, in set be it's think believe depends a And where from pretty and how to to out these allocation It'll we side and on on so out the sense. side, of and - a and heavier QX of and targeted little perspective. COGS three QX, up the a how little as the that work do in makes have our it'll lot scheduling. plays program in evenly or spread how from

come down G&A to cost efforts. that maybe based to a tune So about and going say you the the goods the remainder of, of to third likely the fixed to is on then anticipate R&D can these actions, the let's sold and

Jed Dorsheimer

remind last market all? - Got how we that the focus the shift Thank could And forward? so, just as you. might you new question, look of tool it. segmentation me shift Does John, And then line that at if so up? the end

John Hartner
