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:CTD.Germany
Cabot Microelectronics was incorporated in the state of Delaware in 1999. The Company is a supplier of high-performance polishing slurries used in the manufacture of advanced integrated circuit (IC) devices within the semiconductor industry, in a process called chemical mechanical planarization (CMP). CMP is a polishing process used by IC device manufacturers to planarize or flatten many of the multiple layers of material that are deposited upon silicon wafers in the production of advanced ICs. The Company develops, produces and sells CMP slurries for a wide range of polishing applications of materials that conduct electrical signals, including tungsten, copper and tantalum. Slurries for polishing tungsten are used heavily in the production of memory devices for a multitude of end applications such as computers, MP3 players, cellphones, gaming devices, digital photography and digital video recorders, as well as in mature logic applications such as those used in automobiles. It also develops, manufactures and sells slurry products used to polish the dielectric insulating materials that separate conductive layers within logic and memory IC devices. It develops, produces and sells CMP polishing pads, which are consumable materials that work in conjunction with CMP slurries in the CMP polishing process. It develops and produces CMP slurries for polishing the materials that coat rigid disks and magnetic heads used in hard disk drives for computer and other data storage applications, which represent an extension of its core CMP slurry technology and manufacturing capabilities established for the semiconductor industry. Through its QED subsidiary, it designs and produces precision polishing and metrology systems for advanced optic applications that allow customers to attain near-perfect shape and surface finish on a range of optical components such as mirrors, lenses and prisms. The Company markets its products primarily through direct sales to its customers, although it uses distributors in select areas. Metal oxides, such as silica and alumina, are significant raw materials it uses in many of its CMP slurries. It faces competition from other CMP consumables suppliers, and it also might face competition in the future from significant changes in technology or emerging technologies. The Company's facilities are subject to various environmental laws and regulations, including those relating to air emissions, wastewater discharges, the handling and disposal of solid and hazardous wastes, and occupational safety and health.
