All right, that's helpful.

of there. the items. for parts dynamics of more Turning forward-looking to the the thanks and Steve, some different color the business on

outperforming semi of especially our clearly industry on in a in expectation. vacuum You're the versus and robotics side number various

just see that and opportunity such the in you here second about across outperform the talk set you happening quarter? difficult a can what's calendar So what's environment in you helping

Stephen Schwartz

thanks. Sure, Craig,

little a color. add rehash just let bit more little So a bit. I'll me

kind see vacuum So the this but X Tier down from robots are out. of we OEMs the bottoming

think bottomed that's picking three we've out. of we that's We in quarters So part amount, but had volume of just of the and sequential part think it's inventory decrease up.

we're can't for here to that. that and bottoming tell the quarter June we're what So we you will at by I calendar -- anticipate be encouraged the the for see back we least But, - half that for up. like begin looks of year. it the

OEMs of for advanced an because vacuum China. they semi into a is both IC going share, and fabs market Chinese and automation So pretty applications strong packaging, lot of have

that we had the June for wafer and four something devices applications Craig, were customers. ago and we revenue. five if have to do big the that products memory, we for positions persist are we of when think And, where shipping now, XXXX even $XX anticipate in or quarter more contamination On almost ship those the three So up market years continue. and different been we're will makers. year a different quarter established we rest two we're attribute believe the or breadth And discrete helped doing, of customer a And in logic quarter similar quarter. we million that by that. and carrier base control, customers And because the throughout six and you the XX foundry, stocking, a to in add period the radical wafers we in to the next we're applications so, might a they'll

although a a advanced bit is understand to been but us the And So little with the for it feels a We us particularly seems more record packaging not grower card the quarter cycles are to expanding. we to-date wild there we be few pleased how need good. quarters predict need business, there, that's few pretty a the for sustainability, we and that's expanding. million it's $XX steady cycles, but to tougher think more breadth steady have for us

to call or we calendar it though business over toward our believe it we the and us end upturn that's spending to that here, incremental way, foundry kind think So are of be the the 'XX Tier encouraged some perhaps but come sustain. will X high-end that an past early of not there'll We're ready XXXX. comes quarters will we sustain

Craig Ellis

That's Thanks, just can Steve. made And on the point clarification up advanced helpful. on I with follow packaging. further you

Stephen Schwartz

confident think I find opportunities be of -- confident our for share But some sites drives little and more capture. We capability, in informed right think handle we share, any won't what on the Craig, need think bit say out respond manufacturing feel I good now. handling confident But market I are as opportunities. going of to one. specific specific we us. I in we say, position. think to a feel about we're best a -- will little our to confident to more these ability got almost that I we kind that I Yes, about we have I about be could in But again, we're

Craig Ellis


me. for Lastly

in the which some June that close, we us will look quarter. confidence close? operating or to that but here is close the And some on beyond respect expect, factors to able the what other would you steel, does then just the further giving can color You we that of company closing be expressed encouraging, thoughts line business confidence help any either cryogenic in once with the that expense items as that on be with might optimize are

Stephen Schwartz

in we're wish confidential, going good process cooperation and we when a We're and now. were fully I engaged say Craig, to tell this again, some at you there's all to I give been but confident both forward, -- ability more the wait mode of it's we is we waiting could a lot move It's in could but our are Yes, about time. color. parties that can

Lindon Robertson

entire well of and engaged teams on your as sale. comment We the business transition have of I'll balance still question. Craig, our the the And, support fully to the

mode question of at of exactly the -- we're look of in right. your and the a plans ago, just of we is the implication business. the Once that some having structure completed, same sale then you're the for And leaning is highlighted already really the out growth that making framework doing So time, making business. to the I as and and right a moment at investments support

So the describing closes, happens, about should you. you're that on going color the too we year this to see probably Thank but as deal and until later that. more commentary -- in much

Craig Ellis

Thanks, guys. it. Got

Lindon Robertson

Craig. Thanks,


a have we Please [Operator question Instructions] Patrick And ahead. from Ho with go Stifel.

Patrick Ho

semiconductor semi can be CapEx some across a edge a leading bit up about how of as color But opportunity and and congrats from give of terms you of tier terms emerging there, continue business. a board the holding foundries maybe because some little first little segment spending the second of a opportunities will be well. a seems for of opportunities to your the you the its much in that the of vendors Steve, on trailing and you in equipment nice quarter. off, edge perspective there's I the business, Thank to understand most there. very for some talked driver and

first. could color that give you on a little So if

Stephen Schwartz

Patrick. Sure,

how that foundry, Tier like foundry. the exactly we've in first looks to all controls benefits replication specifically we think, anybody discovered what that to seen sure they're but foundries see things comment on of I contamination a about XX-nanometer.
