[Call Starts Abruptly] The Bank of America Merrill 2012 Industrials and Materials Conference. It’s my great pleasure today to introduce FEI Corporation and speaking today for the company will be Don Kania, President and CEO of the company.
FEI is a $2 billion market cap company. A little bit different from entering companies presenting here, we’re global leader in simplifying sophisticated scientific instruments namely electron microscope that are used in the electronics industry, they’re used in Material Sciences doing a lot in terms of natural resources, also used heavily in Life Sciences research. there is a guy that helps everybody design the materials that are being talked about here.
And with that, I’ll turn it over to Don.
Don R. Kania
Thank you, and good morning everybody, thanks for coming today. And the usual Safe Harbor statements apply for us. So let’s get in the meat of it. So we make very, very sophisticated microscopes, and for the purposes of this discussion, it’s probably pretty much all you need to know. But we’ve been working quite aggressively on not just selling the microscope to a customer, but selling the solutions to customer in a market orientation of the company, which has been evolving over the past few years, which has been quite successful for us.
