Company Profile and Business Description for Applied Materials

Applied Materials, Inc. (Applied), incorporated on March 18, 1987, provides manufacturing equipment, services and software to the global semiconductor, display and related industries. The Company's segments are Semiconductor Systems; Applied Global Services; Display and Adjacent Markets, and Corporate and Other. The Semiconductor Systems segment includes semiconductor capital equipment for etch, rapid thermal processing, deposition, chemical mechanical planarization, metrology and inspection, wafer packaging and ion implantation. Its Applied Global Services segment provides integrated solutions to optimize equipment and fab performance and productivity, including spares, upgrades, services, certain remanufactured earlier generation equipment and factory automation software for semiconductor, display and solar products. The Display and Adjacent Markets segment includes products for manufacturing liquid crystal displays (LCDs), organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), upgrades and roll-to-roll Web coating systems and other display technologies for televisions, personal computers, smart phones and other consumer-oriented devices. The Corporate and Other segment includes revenues from products, as well as costs of products sold for fabricating solar photovoltaic cells and modules, and certain operating expenses.

The Display and Adjacent Markets segment is focused on expanding its presence through equipment for manufacturing televisions, low temperature polysilicon (LTPS), metal oxide and touch panel sectors. The Company offers FabVantage 360, which provides a differentiated benchmarking solution to identify opportunities for evaluated tools. Its crystalline silicon solar (c-Si) services provide labor and part coverage options for corrective and preventive maintenance. It is a supplier of roll to roll coating systems with over 700 installations across the world. Its roll to roll products serve a range of applications, including metal and oxide barrier films for the packaging industry; color-shifting and holographic films for security and anti-counterfeit applications; in-situ patterned metal layers for special flexible packaging, and multi-process, customer-configurable deposition systems for electronics and technology applications.

The Company offers products, including Producer Selectra Etch system, Advanced Productivity Family (APF) Fusion, SmartSched, Xsite, APF Activity Manager, APF RTD and Reporter, iSystem controller, TopMet, TopBeam and others. The Producer Selectra Etch system employs a radical-based chemistry to deliver tunable selectivity for removal of a range of dielectric, metal, and semiconductor films with atomic-level precision. It enables atomic-level etch control for FinFET and dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) structures. It offers an automation software, Applied SmartFactory, which senses factory activity, decides and predicts next actions, and initiates resolution. The Company's product development and manufacturing activities occur primarily in the United States, Europe, Israel and Asia.

Applied's range of equipment and service products are sold primarily through a direct sales force. The Company caters to customers, including manufacturers of semiconductor chips, liquid crystal and other displays, and other electronic devices. Applied has implemented a distributed manufacturing model, under which certain manufacturing and supply chain activities are conducted in various countries, including Germany, Israel, Italy, Singapore, Taiwan, the United States and other countries in Asia. In addition, it outsources certain functions, such as contract manufacturing, engineering, customer support, software development, information technology support, finance and administrative activities to third parties, including companies in the United States, India, China, Korea, Malaysia and other countries.
