the comes Company. Bolton of from question next Needham The line & Quinn with

Quinn Bolton

wanted the comments about I to on growing than results. the Congratulations guys. semiconductor Hi, business your come to and faster peers. just back

think sounds talked business which both MKS semiconductor business. its power in quarter perhaps over overall year-to-date, about and growing faster I XXX%, your think than I the

couple So if got you at belief I've a follow-ups. And you wondering here, Thanks. faster your clarify be apples-and-oranges or growing peers? about you're of looking than comments then might just can your

Yuval Wasserman

you for Sure. the Thank question, Quinn.

apples-to-apples. I not looking at think you're

take really a at the deep to need you think of and definition power. I look dive

you if to saying half MKS. we'll growth, than half be to I'm now, half at – talk show you faster year-over-year growing and categorically, year-over-year, and able some are QX numbers. we Now versus first year-to-date, right look later and you second

As you come is catch you third demand that catch-up all into behind you largely of back upside, quarter, expect additional fourth and or quarter you? you're the do to on do with think up now the

Paul Oldham

I and operational things we're that some the And caught power constraints up came side out of to were IMM products. our most of telecom due Philippines. think that and out challenges, supplier delayed largely embedded from [ph] of the particularly of type for

position caught across said a So backlog we're we continue other markets. we demand think very continue we to strong see our Having because that, to have up. largely good

look or necessarily wouldn't quarter So forward. big a But that we expect drawdown backlog certainly. as think that that we to catch-up we helps the see

Quinn Bolton

great. Okay, Thank you.


from Hosseini Mehdi next comes And Susquehanna. with question your

Mehdi Hosseini

in up I if would market Japan, and And semi have few update it how to couple I on a you a question. presence give as or Yuval, think very cap. us an of increasing follow-ups follow have especially one relates follow-ups. helpful could share as Yes. you're a it Quinn's to I be

Another area semi business the in both grow technology. to strategy continue incremental continue gain significantly, and also and product source about answered line the plasma for our I question, remote plasma we locations your first other hope continued openly remote the to that generate revenue share, to expect we is around And as is to key we future to world. source talked that Mehdi. Asia in in our

Mehdi Hosseini

And you. go want back some your of I to Thank targets. to Absolutely.

Paul Oldham

when the get we prepositioning some a of at surgical look To to was seasonal kind as that clarify, think shipment that we of It's Yes. – question, saw, inventory of ahead patterns good geopolitical of Overall, we that we by some stay in That's largely in that, talked semi but near-term comments – all about few. geopolitical despite we our just not strong. items said to you've still all expect by what customers, in QX. we Wes. a

not that's So guidance. our driving what's necessarily

got customer-specific is backlog bit. quite industry We also the a and digestion. be in going QX, secondly, And said in on that then based earlier the to to we don't we expect center lower this data of kind repeat catch-up QX that from year also that and we helped said

digestion to lower just that's We've the see we we'll managed guidance up, market there's largely those. big a the backlog in center lower lot continue center. are and don't of environmental drivers. behind That's on. the expect – is primary catch two repeat impact that and risks data around lower that lead the things on that to data But that. those other items Obviously, COVID So to

Weston Twigg

follow-up Okay, quite telecom semi other other inventory the XX%, next grow talked of is range in is then could better guidance have in nicely if the getting was XX%. year. that margin you just growth year below years. this that over you the you drive next headwind it gross that wondering XX% restocking year gross about have XXXX might maybe that see or that to Do segments see The and a or the year? But staying range, you semi through And margin. medical, And few demand good, growth the helps. I'm question just I the part XX% industrial, – next in

Paul Oldham

having up, making we'll Obviously semi up you look our impacts are improvements. have at desired is look The look, effect. the embedded in margins synergy power products so we're into but perspective see and some – And are are a impact. gross Yes. areas. this they're as and can if year, consolidation we from both some as next But up year, mix having more that perspective our

balance, on continue markets. we swings think drive your in relative gross to the the could say So some if two I'd mix can is to answer no. margins. We question there saw be you But impact big certainly

Weston Twigg

to clarify, you margin just the some variation? could So through generally with speaking, mix up gross but year trend think
