Quarterly Report

Special Note on Forward-Looking Statements The following discussion contains, in addition to historical information, forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Statements in this report that are not historical information are forward-looking statements. For example, statements relating to our beliefs, expectations and plans are forward-looking statements, as are statements that certain actions, conditions or circumstances will continue. The inclusion of words such as "anticipate," "expect," "estimate," "can," "may," "continue," "enables," "plan," "intend," or "believe," as well as statements that events or circumstances "will" occur or continue, indicate forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Therefore, actual results could differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statements.
For additional information regarding factors that may affect our actual financial condition, results of operations and accuracy of our forward-looking statements, see the information under the caption "Risk Factors" in Part II Item 1A of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and, in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. We undertake no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements for any reason.
We design, manufacture, sell and support power conversion products that transform power into various usable forms. Our products enable manufacturing processes that use thin-film and plasma enhanced chemical and physical processing for various products as well as grid-tied power conversion. We also supply thermal and Infra-red measurement instrumentation products used for temperature measurement and control in the thin-film processing as well as melt height measurement in crystal growth processes. Our network of global service support centers provides local repair and field service capability in key regions.

• Our power conversion products refine, modify and control the raw electrical power from a utility and convert it into power that is predictable, repeatable and customizable. Our power conversion products are primarily used by semiconductor, solar panel and similar thin-film manufacturers including flat panel display, data storage, architectural glass, and industrial coating manufacturers.

• Our thermal instrumentation products provide temperature measurement solutions for applications in which time-temperature cycles affect material properties, productivity and yield. These products are used in rapid thermal processing, chemical vapor deposition, and other semiconductor and solar applications requiring non-contact temperature measurement.

• Our grid-tied power conversion products offer advanced transformer-based or transformerless grid-tied PV solutions for commercial and utility-scale system installations and transformer-based solutions for residential installations. Our PV inverters are designed to convert renewable solar power, drawn from large and small scale solar arrays, into high-quality, reliable electrical power. These products are used for residential, commercial and utility-scale solar projects and installations, and are sold primarily to distributors; engineering, procurement, and construction contractors; developers; and utility companies. These product revenues have seasonal variations. Installations of inverters are normally lowest during the first quarter of the year due to less favorable weather conditions and installation scheduling by our customers.

• Our network of global service support centers offer repair services, upgrades and refurbishments to businesses that use our products.

On October 15, 2010, we sold our gas flow control business, which includes the Aera® mass flow control and related product lines, to Hitachi Metals, Ltd. Consequently, the results of operations from our gas flow control business have been excluded from our discussions relating to continuing operations. Our analysis presented below is organized to provide the information we believe will be helpful for understanding our historical performance and relevant trends going forward. This discussion should be read in conjunction with our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1 of this report, including the notes thereto.
