GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Axcelis Technologies, Inc., was incorporated in Delaware in 1995. The Company designs, manufactures and services ion implantation, dry strip and other processing equipment used in the fabrication of semiconductor chips. It sells to semiconductor chip manufacturers worldwide. In addition to equipment, it provides extensive aftermarket service and support, including spare parts, equipment upgrades, and maintenance services to the semiconductor industry. Ion implantation is a main step in the transistor formation cycle of the semiconductor manufacturing process. An ion implanter is a large, technically advanced machine that injects dopants such as arsenic, boron or phosphorus into a silicon wafer. These dopants are ionized and therefore have electric charges. With an electric charge they can be manipulated, moved and accelerated with electric and magnetic fields. Ion implanters use these fields to create a beam of ions with a precisely defined amount of energy (ranging between several hundred and three million electron-volts) and with a precisely defined amount of beam current (ranging from microamps to milliamps). The Company offers its customers aftermarket service and support throughout the lifecycle of the equipment it manufactures as well as equipment it previously manufactured. The Company sells its equipment and services through its direct sales force. The Company has competed in two principal product markets of the semiconductor wafer fabrication process: ion implantation and dry strip.
