Don Kania

Thanks a lot and it’s a pleasure to be here. So, get going to the, obviously, the Safe Harbor statement on the slide. We are not going to give anything new in terms of guidance or anything like that. Well, we’ll be reaffirming any guidance, but we’ll show it.

So, who is FEI? I think, we’re, just knew this space and it’s the healthcare world. Our company makes electron microscopes and similar nano tools. There is really three core technologies that we have, one is called transmission electron microscopy, the scanning electron microscopes, and this we called focused ion beam.

All you need to do is we make instrumentation that can see atoms, image molecules in three dimensions, and can -- with the machine surfaces at the atomic scale. And we configure three basic technologies to deliver that capability through a variety of markets, that’s how we do, average selling price, just over $1 million to give you a sense.
