Management Comments

"Our revenue exceeded our expectations in the second quarter as we experienced semiconductor front-end recovery in both our Services and Product Solutions businesses sequentially, as expected, offsetting our Life Sciences revenue decline. The integration of Crossing Automation's products into our Brooks portfolio is ahead of schedule and was a solid contributor during the quarter," said Steve Schwartz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Brooks. "We continue to have a strong market share in Life Sciences even though our revenue was less than expected in the quarter due to delays in finalizing store installations and funding uncertainty, which caused a pull-back on device and consumables demand. Heading into our third fiscal quarter, we are seeing our growth coming from our semiconductor products. This reflects a continuation of our strong market positioning."
