Stephen Schwartz

John, a lot of questions there.

to hard you the we've patterns for will WFE past. for us a feels first like but OEMs. is one, consistent a best it simply So, the pick $XX compared with it's full count, sure And how be billion-ish if to some order to number, it'd for us level it that metric in the seen the be imagine that – will,

precision to consistent. that's But we'd consistent too run with say $XX And we rate next, that. the much put it's But we'd couldn't year around so, run the pretty compare when one spend. billion with I say

no brick relates – counts, it. mortar ship, the and and everything But fabs are brick mortar that and capacity. populated the most of tool terms There's the to it is the we in fabs In the generally phases. you about then up as question and are know, put

Craig Ellis

a comment, Just on that last clarification quick Lindon.

$XX heard the model $XX John's corporate then there's response I or million companies? Or Sciences added? either that $XX it really companies? in would add $XX in for $XX million. Semi thought is both for you So, in that you question, is and to And that say $XX I would said there's it add stays million currently with million to that's and both expenses added is expense of the remarks, thought million total. So, So, prepared million I you you Life in

Lindon Robertson

$XX It's one just million.

really I thanks appreciate. clarifying, So, Craig. for
