5 SENSOR INDUSTRY OVERVIEW SENSOR INDUSTRY OVERVIEW

6 The Marketplace Customers (OEMs) need sensors for their products Initially one segment, now breaking into five Very different customer demands developing between the segments Diversification in the use and utility of the sensors

7 The Marketplace In our industry we track the changing customer demand on a perceptual map Over 8 years the customers will demand much faster and smaller sensors Market Segments will continue to diverge Low Tech Traditional High Tech Performance Size

8 Low Tech & Traditional Customers “I want these sensors to be cheap” “I want them to have been around for a while – no Beta Testing!” “The technology doesn’t have to be cutting edge.” “They have to be moderately reliable.” You’re not giving me what I want

9 High Tech, Size & Performance Customers “These sensors have to be small, like micro, and fast” “I need them to be right out of R&D, I’m talking ZERO years on the market” “I like a pretty high reliability.” “I’ll pay more to get what I want.” And I’m not getting what I want!

10 SENSOR INDUSTRY ANALYST PROJECT ONGOING GROWTH Sees the next 8 years as consistent growth. All market segments increase at a nice “clip,” according to market analyst. “I see the entire market growing at around 14% or 15% per year. The High Tech market alone will be growing at a whopping 16%.” I hope those companies out there are ready for that kind of expansion!”

11 COMPANY OVERVIEW COMPANY OVERVIEW

14 SHAKE UP IN SENSOR INDUSTRY Company Fires Management Team After poor results, lackluster sales and angry customer reports, the Chairman of the Board of Directors has announced the immediate termination of the Management Team. “This is a black day for our company,” said Chairman Shook, “We need to hire a dynamic leadership group who will be able to take this company into the future!” “Due to this immediate need I have hired the Dream Team to start on January 1 st.
