GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

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.

Aixtron SE is a provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry. The Company's technology solutions are used by customers to build advanced components for electronic and optoelectronic applications based on compound, silicon, or organic semiconductor materials. Such components are used in displays, signaling, lighting, fiber optic communication systems, wireless and mobile telephony applications, optical and electronic storage devices, computing, as well as a range of other edge applications. The Company's business activities include developing, producing and installing equipment for the deposition of semiconductor materials, process engineering, consulting and training, including ongoing customer support. It supplies its customers with both production-scale material deposition systems and small scale systems for Research & Development (R&D) or small scale production. The Company's product range includes systems capable of depositing material films on a diverse range of different substrate sizes and materials. The deposition process technologies include Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) for the deposition of compound materials as for the production of LEDs, power electronics or processors as well as thin film deposition of organic materials. These include Polymer Vapor Phase Deposition (PVPD) and Organic Vapor Phase Deposition (OVPD), especially for large area deposition, for Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) applications. Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Phase Deposition (PECVD) is being employed for the deposition of complex Carbon Nanostructures (Carbon Nanotubes, Nanowires or Graphene). For silicon semiconductor applications, the Company's systems are capable of depositing material films on wafers of up to 300mm in diameter, by employing technologies such as: Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD). The Company purchases all of the components and most of the assemblies required to manufacture the equipment from third-party contractors and suppliers. The Company markets and sells its products internationally, principally through its own direct sales organization, but also through appointed dealers and sales representatives. The Company's competitors include Veeco Instruments Inc., Ulvac, Inc., Tokki Corporation, SNU Precision, Sunic System, Applied Materials, Inc., Tokyo Electron Ltd., ASM International N.V., IPS Technology, Jusung Engineering Co. Ltd., and Hitachi Kokusai Electric Co. Inc.
