In the future the semiconductor market is expected to see steady global growth based on smartphones and automotive electronics along with the arrival of IoT and other innovative products. At the same time we believe that severe competition between companies will continue as before. Given this environment Tera Probe aims to add corporate value by maximizing existing human resources and fab capacity.
In particular we will realize efficient operations using our ability to propose technology solutions, our development capabilities, our strong development tools and our high quality. We are focused on leveraging our staff of highly experienced engineers deeply trained in process management, our global scale memory-testing service and the largest logic tester service capacity in Japan among the manufacturing sites we have in Japan and Taiwan. This will put us ahead of the competition and position us to develop new customers and increase orders for our services.
We deeply appreciate the continued encouragement and support of our shareholders.
