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.

Business Description

Industry: Semiconductors » Semiconductors
Compare:INTC, TSM, BRCM, ARMH, ADI » details
Traded in other countries:2311.Taiwan, AVFA.Germany, ASX N.Mexico,
Advanced Semiconductor Engineering Inc was incorporated on March 23, 1984 as a company limited by shares under the ROC Company Law. The Company is an independent provider of semiconductor packaging and testing services. Its services include semiconductor packaging; design and production of interconnect materials, front-end engineering testing, wafer probing and final testing services. It offers semiconductor packaging and testing services. The Company's package types employ either leadframes or substrates as interconnect materials. The semiconductors it packages are used in applications, including communication equipment, computers, electronic goods, industrial, automotive and other applications. The Company's testing services include engineering testing, which is performed during and following the initial circuit design stage of the semiconductor manufacturing process, wafer probe, final testing and other related semiconductor testing services. It focuses on packaging and testing logic semiconductors. It offers its customers turnkey services which consist of packaging, testing and direct shipment of semiconductors to end users designated by its customers. The Company offers a range of package types to meet the requirements of its customers, with a focus on packaging solutions. Within its portfolio of package types, it focuses on the packaging of semiconductors for which there is expected to be demand. Leadframe-based packages are packaged by connecting the die, using wire bonders, to the leadframe with gold wire. Substrate-based packages generally employ the BGA design, which utilizes a substrate rather than a leadframe. Wafer-level packages typically have an area no greater than 1.2 times of the silicon die. It also offers module assembly services, which combine one or more packaged semiconductors with other components in an integrated module to enable increased functionality, typically using automated surface mount technology, or SMT, machines and other machinery and equipment for system-level assembly. It offers drop shipment services for shipment of semiconductors directly to end users designated by its customers. It conducts marketing research through its customer service personnel and through its relationships with its customers and suppliers to keep abreast of market trends and developments. The main raw materials used in its packaging processes are interconnect materials such as leadframes and substrates, gold wire and molding compound. The Company faces competition from a number of sources, including other independent semiconductor packaging and testing companies.
