Management Comments
Commenting on the quarterly results, Bob Reback, president and chief executive officer of Cimetrix, stated, "The semiconductor equipment market is a very cyclical industry. Our business model is to continue to invest in product development during the down cycles, while remaining profitable, and then build revenue and profit during the upcycles. All indications are we are in an upcycle for 2014, which should be a good year for Cimetrix as we deliver higher levels of customer shipments. We remain focused on satisfying our customers, continually improving our products, research and development activities and gaining new design wins.

"What is particularly exciting is our continued success in gaining new design wins for all of our product lines worldwide.
