[Operator you. go question of is Suisse. Credit the Farhan from with first line Ahmad Please Thank Instructions] Our ahead.

Farhan Ahmad

first think growth main CCS Hi, taking question for we on the thanks is questions. the forward going CCS? how my the drivers what we are it’s about, recently. just talk you actually and that growth a little will for the My in Can CCS should weak accelerate business

Lindon Robertson

Farhan, make I am you understanding I to? Can business are which referring just sure

Farhan Ahmad

Contamination control.

Lindon Robertson

okay. Yes,

in am semi Last contamination it and initially, Steve Manager, And $XX that million previous there. underneath have do continue was is to I’ll control up I the in here. it So in million let reached business chime from Dave the is optimism our to year. comment we going General Jarzynka. much XXXX had year $XX and in

the make think growth up third we the and and way it the another picking down solid second we the modestly, to but we remains on what year. we to that in year in investments all it’s a still quarter quarter continue. to fab, the Whether picked determined While are still been seen by talking fourth to we’re be quarter hunt for in see it in have continue we it demand expect up here the the half second

Farhan Ahmad

to business and it. going that talk China can just suppliers about Got the in Chinese you in of do regards is trajectory then much your see suppliers Korea And sort equipment forward? of you and how newer Korean of coming equipment the how their and from growth

Steve Schwartz

they in last more the two the relatively to we what lot capability of win of say quite process makers I’d are the is we A three more the got equipment makers steps. equipment see so time. they So now Chinese new But some Farhan, get years. for Korean that as

of lot imagine opportunities putting out increasing also equipment there. significant exist a there’s are And of you some and makers pretty so China generally where around that the the in some forecast some volumes can are of the enthusiasm as

Farhan Ahmad

you had. thank that’s it, Got all I

Lindon Robertson

Thanks, Farhan.


the is Please Edwin line next & Co. of from our Mok Needham question with And ahead. go

Edwin Mok

taking for Thanks my question guys.

the So roughly you first two acquisitions revenue and June how GAAP And your you or $X.XX to add just much both is Tec-Sem much GAAP said just for impact just tell non-GAAP? housekeeping two that guidance? how the can quickly -- acquisitions there’s us

Steve Schwartz

limited. estimated the about careful visibility this a the revenues have a that press last folded as do we about first on still with netting we the X% but $XX release have on we or We XX% have at the with down quarter acquired had Yes, after this. what was and of the that up $X experience we orders, capital. million shared million so is about made we guidance being approximately we good ended $XX paying closeout basis expectations working year The think primary the million we’ve in. GAAP time, holders too, In the because run so from holders. all I of minority payments right about have we’re rate Not

Edwin Mok

$X.XX then margins And results it’s some the on guidance? or that is overall just GAAP business lower just impact

Steve Schwartz

dilution expect Q that’s our the I as would be to and a Yes, that sorry I'm after non-GAAP integration out this -- go I we penny got of is But and point amortization the quarter there. some move Edwin will will you expectation through for back about to a spelled we’ve it do.

business CCS this the is our in Germany. location really mentioned As close approximate of to Steve

and And there’s and so there we some synergies good see some opportunities opportunities.

non-GAAP and integration it to fourth the ramping time near-term become we our on in get you’ll a demand and So and the that basis. accretive demand see quarter see do with we by with activities

Edwin Mok

the the think heard guidance your can suggesting even seems growth that midpoint just still semi, then with it are all guys at what’s go And your your in of like the you sticking on vacuum backing in coming business the helpful. just see large that’s how growth grow, levels you quarter kind that quarters business we’ve driving in about of continue spending you customers curious to out of heard June kind quarter? that do CCS kind Great, from lower automation the NAND and of I some June the beyond talking

Steve Schwartz

are June pretty others. Yes, the customers bit one mix more confidence pretty we’ve us and little remains than Edwin, that a strong is because growth order we’re in book still results, in gives And our quarter. high also but again book heard the some curious order bullish

customers months for the pretty demands at least are next over bookings So are the the solid. strong and

us remember So various we're and biggest surprising side. while looks least bit at what it’s the vacuum next confident we amongst we have especially in a the we’re but the automation busy probably like about variance that a to the and pretty in OEMs, quarter can little

Edwin Mok

there Okay, great. on helpful. just guys you extremely in curious, this work Life kind of those there doing quickly like the geographic did big based there, then I expand since guys room are has then of Sciences storage example acquisition correct sample is capability and And all Europe. been a that just of you driver international your remember U.S., in into opportunity? That's I'm is to some storage expansion Canadian is depository this and

Steve Schwartz

Edwin. correct, That's

at countries to up have repository that least samples buyer European It's not in real even opportunity So, a facility samples, was sites, happen from a an basically sites. dozens Canada. in our of we because all different And came as Canadian fact of it of Indianapolis of be we have anyone storage good really in a those matter in they in Pennsylvania.

So, have all the that irrespective bio any world. that's samples where you'll over storage and bio with from many they the pretty from are. repository -- samples The repositories are size consistent find almost countries. the And of bio in model

So customers Canadian but customers geographically, think the half customers. of Canadian were for because about Canada I benefit a of it's half customers, are our only

Edwin Mok

you talk talked before. that last guys helpful. of remember have that’s that One storage mind you don’t if actually pile I squeezing about Okay, compound progressing? just me How about store equipment a lot is in, one of or

Steve Schwartz

if comment we in development is… the asking progressing The compounds general in understanding compounds. I'm me chemical think I chemical you’re storing this, on your are question, -- In let

Edwin Mok

you about me temperature sample you talking are just storage I'm historically lower have talk about guys guys equipment in that let to that correct, trying market? Yes, are grow

Steve Schwartz

Yes, so, free bio trial. storage

bit cryogenic up last progress the a win time So, we've one that's from we million making level, the where at again temperature. dollars at slow little And low we another those year. with quarter this been, we and really But did and there, progress that's consistent pretty automated in a is a at systems. steady keep customer on the but

automate I where early provide size XXXX actually cryogenic of will these we end in two think go good systems call, toward the connect talk installations on that fully some XXXX, to we pretty the together. that automation about did that last them

continues had the as be steady a to opportunity. slower So, than this we at one XXXX. And bullish we pace anticipated, we're really for about but forecasted

Edwin Mok

That's all Thank Okay, have. you. I great.

Lindon Robertson

be GAAP a mean I related Edwin, was million about step be able that amortization to would results GAAP And I follow-up up costs on other acquisitions would on question the $X.X your to the another basis. now a in confirm, but in the extra

be round said another we be about would GAAP non-GAAP, on hurt basis. $X.XX it $X.XXX a it the while about on a numbers would So,

Edwin Mok

clarifying thanks Great, that. for

remarks And quarter, Thanks. XX you which the your past. don���t unusually design data segment in number, then prepared Steve was mentioned I recall the wins an high in Semiconductor in you’re that mentioning

can the was around whether ones any have CCS out talked advanced generating or that about that particular us of that all And or segment those robotics context might so? vacuum, the last wins? it’s number So been or over you four of you terms there quarters some packaging stood really where design in

Steve Schwartz

year. you, with this just metric give targets out every very a Sure, the that to at advance we set is so specific Craig of

teams XX So been the the just really as we have our did to come and the ones and strategic. them, beginning but that take engineering consider account not at that on on are ones list targeted they were that teams aligned year we’ll XX the and wins, be important. the are the along design we of some Of may

half is average of historical for about the that. So us

be a So just XX% typical pretty to idea to give quarter an would normal. in you XX%

call have XX% to we deliberate of terms in to there too. really achieve China then quarter something and outstanding. to to on and lot make same of so range XX% -- other regions. the It’s set and the of out important it’s CCS had to used wins, a of presence kind it unusual of the deliberate back it we to that a quarter pretty report the in it’s -- the we think a the we the And real in really that capability. in in was testament we on a ago set double wins a And that years is is But a we

place, sure what foundry we in of expenses we what because are going some the take in rate also And is place to so, to those not and will activity be takes we for want tools the but think that there Taiwan. fabs be our we want model at the

make participate all get don’t just so want sure And too. to design that the volume comes we in we that that we

huge us the So for wins XX in accomplishment China CCS is a in quarter.

Craig Ellis

congrats in any Yes, that that performance. automation, packaging, advanced overall wins. business of parts Connecting in the cetera? either to comments year? other near-term the don’t stand of performance and visibility the strong confidence lent quarter businesses backlog that performance of activity CCS, is have you is do design and very about et it the for for XXXX there vacuum and or calendar on for dynamics, you that your with team really looking enter some comment How that comments you that with the David’s the out Can the the half to back would are

Steve Schwartz

indication we across all tight. the in we So make sure ordering chain indications across have get really really -- board in to when the of the supply strong the that especially us our board, Craig orders customers these advance, but days were give we’re an ready is

the prepared us audits pretty significant indicate the So there calendar the would for of happen. back can they are anything the the half is indications that us in and strength and to on continued year, request be again but

about our of from the that orders at readiness us order the by least for. the and pressure backlog remain the an we hold large so health give the day. customers of confident we what And But and is indication

I I can all wish say, concrete. So that’s be about more we could

can in from on the claims that little I that’s product, want tell across people but sure the with probably bit supply bookings a going the that are to chain make You think again industry. to they again

Craig Ellis
