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:DM2.Germany
GT Advanced Technologies Inc. was originally incorporated in Delaware in September 2006. It is a technology company with innovative crystal growth equipment and solutions for the global solar, LED and electronics industries. The Company's products are designed to accelerate the adoption of advanced materials that improve performance and lower the cost of manufacturing. It also produces sapphire material at its pilot production facility in Massachusetts which is sold directly to customers and used to make a variety of products such as epitaxial-ready wafers for use in the LED and other specialty markets. The Company operates as one business unit comprised of three business segments: polysilicon business, photovoltaic, or PV, business and sapphire business. Primary market for its product development has been the solar industry where it has established a leadership position in two areas; products and services that enable the production of low-cost, high quality polysilicon, and silicon casting furnaces that produce crystalline ingots used in the production of solar cells. Photovoltaic (PV) systems are used in industrial, commercial and residential applications to convert sunlight directly into electricity. The focus of its PV business is the development, manufacture and sales of crystallization growth furnaces to produce silicon ingots used in the production of solar wafers. Its strategy includes better serving its customers and lowering its costs by maintaining its base of operations in Asia. The Company competes with both well established and new, low-cost equipment manufacturers, mainly located in China, for DSS furnaces for the production of multicrystalline ingots.
