Leo Berlinghieri, Chief Executive Officer and President, said, "We are pleased to report another strong quarter for MKS, with continued strength in the semiconductor market being somewhat offset by a decline in solar business following our record shipments in Q1. Our operating leverage further improved with favorable product mix coupled with effective cost controls. After a robust first half of the year, we are seeing some softening in the semiconductor market as the record shipments of the last few quarters are assimilated and brought on line. We expect that the solar market will remain slightly depressed in the third quarter, but we anticipate that sales to our other markets should continue to remain strong. Based upon these patterns and general business outlook, we estimate that our third quarter sales may range from $180 to $210 million and at this volume, our non-GAAP net earnings could range from $0.40 to $0.60 per share."
