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:FMF.Germany
FormFactor Inc., is incorporated in Delaware. It designs, develops, manufactures, sells and supports precision, high performance advanced semiconductor wafer probe card products and solutions. Semiconductor manufacturers use its wafer probe cards to perform wafer sort and test on the semiconductor die, or chips, or the whole semiconductor wafer, which is prior to singulation of the wafer into individual separate chips. It works closely with its customers to design, develop and manufacture custom wafer probe cards. Each wafer probe card is a custom product that is specific to the chip and wafer designs of the customer. The Company's products are based on its proprietary technologies, including its MicroSpring interconnect technology and design tools. The Company's MicroSpring interconnect technology, which includes resilient spring-like contact elements, enables it to produce wafer probe cards for applications that require reliability, speed, precision and signal integrity. It manufactures its MicroSpring contact elements through precision micro-machining and scalable semiconductor-like wafer fabrication processes. For high parallelism memory test applications, its products require large area contact array sizes because they must accommodate tens of thousands of simultaneous contacts. DC-Boost technology helps its customers lower their test efficiency by enabling the test of more devices on a single wafer simultaneously. The Company's current and potential competitors in the wafer probe card market include Advantest Corporation, Aehr Test Systems, AMST Co., Ltd., Cascade Microtech, Inc. and Wentworth Laboratories, Inc.
