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 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 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 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 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, 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). Its equipment ensures that each MLCC meets both the electrical and physical tolerances required to perform properly. The Company sells its products through direct sales and service offices, value-added resellers and independent representatives located around the world. It has direct sales and service personnel in Oregon, California and several other states; China, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan in Asia; and France, Germany and the United Kingdom in Europe. The Company faces competition from Via Mechanics, Ltd., EO Technics Co. Ltd., LPKF Laser & Electronics AG, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Orbotech Ltd., InnoLas Systems GmbH, DISCO Corporation, Laser Solutions, Inc., Quantel USA, Inc., HOYA Corporation, Humo Laboratory Ltd.
