KLA Corporation Announces Launch of Frontline Cloud Services, a Software Solution

2022-04-07 09:00:00

KLA Corporation announced the launch of Frontline Cloud Services, a software solution that accelerates design-for-manufacturability (DFM) analysis and time-to-market (TTM) for complex printed circuit boards (PCBs). Advanced technologies, such as 5G and miniLED, call for PCBs with increasingly complex designs that require time-consuming, compute-intensive validation for manufacturability. This new cloud-based SaaS offering – an industry first – addresses this challenge by moving DFM analysis to the cloud, which significantly reduces IT bottlenecks and the amount of time needed to run analyses. An on-premises DFM analysis can often take hours or even days, causing considerable delays in the mass production of PCBs for the electronics industry. To accelerate this process, KLA is transitioning its proven computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and engineering technologies to the cloud, where compute power is virtually infinite. Anecdotally, customers running comparative tests on complex PCBs saw Frontline Cloud Services enable up to 90% faster DFM analysis speeds. For example, one customer producing high-density interconnect (HDI) PCBs saw analysis time significantly shorten from 75 hours to 30 minutes when running the same DFM analysis on premises versus with Frontline Cloud Services, respectively. Another customer producing PCBs for miniLED ran a similar test and analysis time was reduced from nine hours to 20 minutes. For PCB manufacturers, Frontline Cloud Services can: Accelerate DFM analysis to meet growing productivity demands; Save on IT costs with scalable compute resources and monitored usage reports; Address emerging electronics trends like 5G and miniLED, and their increased design complexity; Provide access to consistently reliable, available and up-to-date services and tools; Ensure the higher cloud security standards in the industry with both factory- and job-level security; and Enable fast onboarding to the cloud-based system with no training or implementation required.

Technical Analysis

When trying to optimize the timing of an investment, it's critical to analyze whether the stock looks overbought or oversold, and in which direction the momentum is moving. KLA's stock is now priced above its 5-day and 50-day, but below its 200-day moving average, while its MACD (moving average convergence divergence) indicates that the stock's price movement momentum is weakening. Historically, this is a positive setup in both the short and medium-term. Meanwhile, looking at the Stochastic Oscillator and RSI (relative strength index), KLA's stock doesn't strongly signal being overbought or oversold. Overall, these technical indicators signal negative momentum. Therefore, this stock received a cumulative TA (technical analysis) score of 57.

Balance Sheet Analysis

KLA appears likely to maintain its strong balance sheet metrics and momentum going forward. KLA is doing a good job of keeping its liabilities under control and growing intelligently. At filing, their liabilities were 7939.2, representing 4.0% change from the previous period. This performance is all interesting relative to their peers and suggests that their stock price has room to grow to reflect a higher intrinsic value. The company's liabilities movement component, therefore, received a grade of 75. Also, KLA did a great job related to equity this period, which stood at 4080.3, representing a 0.8% change. Companies in the same sector and market capitalization will usually be affected by up to 4.3 percent by this parameter. This performance is significantly more impressive than its peers and competitors. Consequently, their equity movement received a grade of 73. That said, one metric, Cash & Equivalents, stood out as particularly concerning. KLA's management did a relatively poor job managing cash and cash equivalents, which now sit at 1415.2 and represents a -14.6% change from the last reporting period. The company's cash and cash equivalents metrics highlight a difficult overall financial situation, which may, unfortunately, continue moving forward unless management makes significant changes. Discouraging results like these statistically lead to negative pressure in stock prices, so we rated their cash and cash equivalents with a score of 53. Consequently, the company's balance sheet earned a rank of 66.

Assets 12,017.8 2.9% 62

Cash Flow Analysis

Two metrics jump up as the most significant positive drivers of the cash flow's strength in KLA's recent report: Asset Turnover and Free Cash flow. KLA is doing a remarkable job of keeping its asset turnover under control. At filing, their asset turnover metrics were 0.8, representing a 3.7% change from the previous period. Companies in the same sector and market capitalization will usually be affected by up to 10.7 percent by this parameter. Their impressive asset turnover metrics, specifically in contrast to their industry peers' performance, should support a tailwind in the company's stock price. Correspondingly, their asset turnover movement received a grade of 79. Also, KLA's published free cash flow numbers were substantial and reflected management's focus on a healthy change strategy. KLA recorded free cash flow of 17.6, which represents a 5.9% change from the previous report. This parameter coud affect companies in the same industry and market capitalization by up to 7.4%. The company's free cash flow metrics are especially strong compared to its peers. Management seems to balance cash flow management, asset growth, and resource allocations in general. Therefore, its free cash flow movement earned a score of 76. On the other hand, Capital Expenditure, jumped out as looking problematic. KLA's management did not a remarkable job this period managing capital expenditures (CapEx). In terms of the raw numbers, CapEx was reported as -289.5, which represents a -15.6% change from the last period. This performance is all the more uninspiring relative to their peers and competitors. Therefore, their CapEx movement component earned a score of 52. Because the company's management is doing an excellent job managing these critical metrics, the cash flow was given a score of 74.

Parameter Value Change Score
Net Cashflow -37.0 -116.4% 70
Capital Expenditure -289.5 -15.6% 52
Asset Turnover 0.8 3.7% 79
