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.

BTU International Inc was incorporated in Delaware in 1981. The Company is a supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment to the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets. The Companys equipment is used in the production of solar cells and nuclear fuel, as well as in printed circuit board assembly and semiconductor packaging. It offers processing equipment for both silicon and thin film photovoltaics. Also in alternative energy, its customers use its thermal systems for the processing of nuclear fuels. The Companys convection solder reflow systems are used to attach electronic components to the printed circuit boards, mainly in the advanced, high-density, surface mount segments of this market. In the semiconductor market, it participates in both wafer level and die level packaging, where its thermal processing systems are used to connect and seal integrated circuits into a package. It delivers thermal processing systems to serve the needs of manufacturers that require high throughput, process yields and reliability with tightly controlled process parameters. The Companys systems are designed to enable its customers to increase throughput and yield for solar cell processing, nuclear fuel sintering and electronics assembly by providing precise atmospheric and temperature control. The Companys PYRAMAX family of convection reflow systems is designed on a single platform to be rapidly configurable, which reduces the product build cycle and allows it to meet customer demands for shorter delivery lead times. The introduction of the TRITAN system is a new platform for solar cell metallization and the potential solar cell efficiency improvements. Many of its customers are large-volume global manufacturers that use its products in multiple facilities. Several companies compete with the Company in selling thermal processing systems.
