PresentationOlga Levinzon – Barclays Capital
Good afternoon. I am Olga Levinzon, (inaudible) at Barclays. And it’s my pleasure to introduce Mr. Martin Headley, CFO of Brooks Automation.
Thank you very much, Olga. And welcome to Brooks. For those of you who may not know, just remind you that our core market historically has been semiconductor front end and those markets adjacent to that market, being markets such as MEMS, LED, data storage as well as some of our general vacuum markets that we generally call an industrial one. For those markets we provide robotic handlers and systems from which the Brooks Automation name originally comes.
But through acquisitions we’ve made in the past, we also have cryogenic vacuum pumps and cryochillers and vacuum instruments where we are also a market leader, as well as the service support of those products in the field. And we serve a market value of about $1.5 billion. In addition, by virtue of acquisitions that we started making during 2011, we have new markets which surround automation in life sciences. And the core and the starting point of those acquisitions is automated cold stores for critical sample management. Around that is cell imaging for sample preparation and verification. And we currently service a market of about $300 million. So our current served markets are about $1.5 billion.
