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 » Semiconductor Equipment & Materials
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:IML.Germany
Intermolecular, Inc. was originally incorporated as The BEP Group, Inc. in Delaware in June 2004. In November 2004, it changed its name to Intermolecular, Inc. It redefines R&D for the semiconductor and clean energy sectors as they develop new generations of technology for the communications, consumer electronics, medical device, automotive, and entertainment industries. Through paid collaborative development programs (CDPs) with its customers, it develops proprietary technology and intellectual property (IP) for its customers focused on advanced materials, processes, integration and device architectures. This technology enables its customers to bring application-specific, customized, high-volume manufacturing-ready integrated devices to market faster and with less risk than traditional approaches to research and development (R&D). The Company provides its customers with proprietary technology through various fee arrangements and grants them rights to associated IP, primarily through royalty-bearing licenses. The Company's proprietary approach is applicable to high-volume integrated device markets, which include the markets for semiconductors, flat glass, solar cells, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), flat-panel displays, advanced batteries and other energy-efficient technologies. Its approach consists of its proprietary high productivity combinatorial (HPC) platform, coupled with its multi-disciplinary team. The Company's HPC platform consists of its Tempus HPC processing tools, automated characterization and informatics and analysis software. Its platform is purpose-built for R&D using combinatorial process systems, a methodology for discovery and development that employs parallel and other high-throughput experimentation and allows R&D to be performed at speeds 10 to 100 times faster than traditional methods. It currently targets large, high-volume semiconductor and high-growth emerging clean-energy markets, including DRAM, flash memory, complex logic, flat glass, solar cells, LEDs and other energy-efficient technologies. The Company's largest customers are ATMI, Elpida Memory, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Guardian Industries, SanDisk, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and Toshiba. It uses its Tempus HPC processing tools to rapidly process different experiments consisting of various combinations of materials, processing parameters, sequencing and device structures. The Company uses automated characterization systems to characterize the substrates processed by its Tempus HPC processing tools, thereby rapidly generating experimental data while matching its processing throughput. It uses its informatics and analysis software to automate experiment generation, characterization, data analysis and reporting, in each case while matching its processing throughput, and to create an aggregated and searchable database of information that includes the experimental results it generates.
