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.

Traded in other countries:ESI.Germany
Electro Scientific Industries, Inc. was incorporated in the state of Oregon. It was founded in 1944. The Company is a supplier of laser-based manufacturing solutions for the microtechnology industry. Its laser systems enable precise structuring and testing of micron to submicron features in components and devices which are used in a wide variety of end products in the consumer electronics, computer, communications and other industries. The Company's customers are mainly manufacturers of semiconductors, electronic interconnect devices, passive components, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), or other components used in a wide variety of end products in the computer, consumer electronics, communications and other industries. The Company's equipment enables these manufacturers to implement device features or achieve yield and productivity gains in their manufacturing processes that could be critical to their profitability. The Company's advanced laser micro-engineering systems allow semiconductor and micro-electronics manufacturers to physically alter select device features during high-volume production in order to heighten performance and boost production yields. Laser micro-engineering comprises a set of precise micron-level processes, including advanced micro-machining, wafer scribing and dicing, semiconductor memory-link cutting, semiconductor device trimming, material ablation and via drilling as well as nano-level structuring to alter material characteristics. These processes require application-specific laser systems able to meet its customers' exacting performance and productivity requirements. The Company's laser-based systems improve production yields or enable improved performance for semiconductor devices, high-density interconnect (HDI) circuits, flexible interconnect material, advanced semiconductor packaging, LEDs, flat panel liquid crystal displays (LCDs) and other components. Additionally, it produces high-capacity test and optical inspection equipment that is critical to the quality control process during the production of multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs). The Company's equipment ensures that each MLCC meets both the electrical and physical tolerances required to perform properly. The main competitor for its semiconductor group is GSI Group Inc. Competitors for LED scribing include Disco Corporation; JP Sercel Associates, Inc. and Laser Solutions, Inc. LCD repair competitors include Big Sky Laser Technologies, Inc. and Hoya Corporation. For the passive components group, its competitors include Daiichi Jitsugyo Viswill Co., Ltd., GSI Group, Inc., Humo Laboratory, Ltd. and Tokyo Weld Co., Ltd. as well as component manufacturers that develop systems for internal use. It's Interconnect/ Micromachining Group competes with laser systems provided by Hitachi Via Mechanics, Ltd., LPKF Laser & Electronics AG, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation and several local Chinese and Korean competitors. For the Components Group, its compet
