whether the you've side or any any, of business? John, can display experienced cancellations on the Hi. Thank outs you. push say you seen

John Ambroseo

To-date we have not.

Jim Ricchiuti

terms say you're activity. in look what in seeing, seeing in Korea, Is in mean any investment but in customer display, variability there you're you outlook are out by the of is you we are plans base the Okay. you what of level region? And China seeing of investment seeing muted, that terms can for in the know I what by

John Ambroseo

about -- Let's the meaningful provide desire processes. see, remains China, lot to down have those would production because We help go know player role I those OLED market they in having. discussion can't we in the be to of challenges say A strong. the how the last Many them quite the a around solving they're equipment. with is certain don't currently that we don't of

As refine yields posture, expect my having seen haven't other move further a remarks, of challenges once I those them start enough. annealing is We they would that. the mentioned they But to want step to up the they're changing in and prepared currently no, see meaningful in that their good in solve we any to that way. terms of players

Jim Ricchiuti

up? In respect Okay. words a moving least see impact starting service-related when quarter hearing With would service existing are to business? display in that as your business seeing you're the customers, anticipate current to in you the that other we pickup your at among rates the your should utilization utilization we're

John Ambroseo

they Again, see customers had than of in and up some March expected an respond don't are burning Utilization that uptick to did. continue We translate commensurate also a inventory reiterate, that I at be To the unlimited continue demand. it, quarter -- prepared about we manage inventory. in to we see the point an off blunt were because utilization didn't expect to rates to service of June actually but help over service grow, expect we in cash. referred in to rates to into do amount to to revenues would June remarks, my of I have guess that it increase more

Jim Ricchiuti

the industrial you the what had concerns in light areas fiber how and expectations little can I'll just processing level would repeat have your that you may business say materials people could activity seeing shifting last you have I did you're characterize and the a you about question of to back different business, and me, just would characterize, of of laser but in fiscal that? 'XX, for you clarify, just bit queue jump Okay. revenue misheard, the in gears for

John Ambroseo

to $XXX and components. that fiber in to worldwide, number 'XX sales So components we we'll fiber than million of and laser it's fiscal number and in that million fiber fiscal lasers $XXX do by the more Again, total 'XX. in grow comments, laser XX% expect for about fiber reiterate lasers

least includes as producers there as fibers, like this pump concerns fibers, producers that about what is diodes cetera. seeing what So things than active at are environment it probably large at et combiners, And effect transport of we're current juncture. trade It's certainly far like. the small having more looks on on an

more are have not some but hope that of cutting that think we're I growth traditional question. going answers However, space. in they're because at all, the the that they into. the greenfield of some applications opportunities your looking We not

Jim Ricchiuti

It does.

that to all obviously of in something clarify Just cuts so that's your across that materials instance other $XXX processing, market correct? some for not million segments,

John Ambroseo

capture the are whether in always of into produce we’ve sold bucket, same within that's processing bucket components gets It captured way materials materials that it’s revenue all the to all or processing We it. used that lasers. are and materials processing lasers handled the that

Jim Ricchiuti

jump I'll Thanks. in back the Okay. queue.

I'd existing of first out lower the you fill combination today spit year. a to, guess reasonable you a wanted on there's higher it So half, to fall second out to then fill -- backlog saying if and I to wanted approach. sure, if orders have where but like probably I sitting way think more about the data to approximation. it is a we're bit a little reasonable from half before that to today, you it's that's told

couple remain pretty that there a Just the challenges is the of just what follow-ups. you seems like What seeing of not yield vendors are year OLED long-term you with sort factors as of of XXXX timeline. pinpoint that confident obviously, in you it's give compete. of other improve, to you and probably sort gives will on sort if. that John, when With you confident you conversations and it confidence, and customers, some production not when some be as are But the can that a seem more that and whatnot it confidence?

John Ambroseo

a I to While bills. want follow these back planning are what follow you yet, conversations telling ago I that. what the they're they're drives market you about, to And to of said us part fab if now. when and the and build Larry, with few years customers have planning I'm talked fabs going is

Larry Solow

Okay.

So all, expected to right. it's I in of to that to the the of, seem doesn't sort to yield of of list open only push But that in say? all commercialization It's and is seem is queue fabs fair terms actual everything just it sort at terms have of of slowed guess to right. seems but grow to demand

John Ambroseo

competitive. not one committed it's when any customers. other not review or not No you're done to question, to it. very from to be level they're tenor. We of we've recently. changed issue It's going an their ask And high a The whether heard have has fair

Larry Solow

Okay. Fair enough.

a at last sales Just just the question one -- for down guidance actually looks on the like one QX, X% on X%, midpoint. maybe shortsighted

You mentioned expect there. service the recovery revenue

can that color from on that? still you sort part piece level, or a a of it So is is that give of high little

Kevin Palatnik

it's Yes. Kevin. Larry,

growth into QX, so set expect do so. it's product look but a a various Like of we you drives products as at down other services certainly some mix forth, or we and little So said that bit. X% it

Larry Solow

of So it's anything. OLED [ph] a side, or [flat-on] just per mix really not on and display the se side stuff outsides, more than timing just it's

Kevin Palatnik

the the segments most of of It's across end-market.

Larry Solow

are sounds real doing you well? it But the not because any of an markets talk guys way mostly indication, like still slowness rather

Kevin Palatnik

Correct.
