Business Description

AVX Corporation is a leading worldwide manufacturer and supplier and reseller of a broad line of passive electronic components, interconnect devices, and related products. Virtually all types of electronic devices use our passive component products to store, filter, or regulate electric energy.

Our passive electronic component products include ceramic and tantalum capacitors, film capacitors, varistors, filters, and other components manufactured in our facilities throughout the world and passive components manufactured by Kyocera Corporation of Japan (“Kyocera”), a public company and our majority stockholder, which owns approximately 73% of our outstanding common stock, and other manufacturing suppliers. We also manufacture and sell electronic connectors and inter-connect systems and distribute and sell certain electronic connectors manufactured by Kyocera.

We are organized by product line with five main product groups. Our reportable segments are based on the types of products from which we generate revenues and how management assesses performance and makes operating decisions related to these products. We have three reportable segments: Passive Components, Kyocera Electronic Devices (“KED Resale”), and Interconnect. The product groups of Ceramic Components, Advanced Components and Tantalum Components have been aggregated into the Passive Components reportable segment. The Passive Components segment consists primarily of surface mount and leaded ceramic capacitors, RF thick and thin film components, surface mount and leaded tantalum capacitors, surface mount and leaded film capacitors, ceramic and film power capacitors, super capacitors, EMI filters (bolt in and surface mount), thick and thin film packages of multiple passive integrated components, varistors, thermistors, inductors, and resistive products manufactured by or for AVX. The KED Resale segment consists primarily of ceramic capacitors, frequency control devices, SAW devices, sensor products, RF modules, actuators, acoustic devices, and connectors produced by Kyocera and resold by AVX. The Interconnect segment consists primarily of AVX Interconnect automotive, telecom, and memory connectors manufactured by or for AVX. In addition, we have a corporate administration group consisting of finance, legal, environmental health and safety (“EHS”), and administrative activities.

Our customers are multi-national original equipment manufacturers, or OEMs, independent electronic component distributors, and electronic manufacturing service providers, or EMSs. We market our products through our own direct sales force and independent manufacturers' representatives, based upon market characteristics and demands. We coordinate our sales, marketing, and manufacturing organizations by strategic customer account and globally by region.

We sell our products to customers in a broad array of industries, such as telecommunications, information technology hardware, automotive electronics, medical devices and instrumentation, industrial instrumentation, transportation, energy harvesting, defense and aerospace electronic systems, and consumer electronics.

Our principal strategic advantages include:

Creating Technology Leadership. We have research and development locations in the United States, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, France, Israel, Malaysia, and Japan. These new products add to the broad product line we offer to our customers. Due to our broad product offering, none of our products individually represent a material portion of our revenues. Our scientists and design engineers are working to develop product solutions to the challenges facing our customers as consumers and businesses demand more advanced electronic solutions to manage their everyday lives and businesses. Our engineers are continually working to enhance our manufacturing processes to improve capability, capacity, and yield, while continuing to reduce manufacturing costs.

Providing a Broad Product Line. We believe that the breadth and quality of our product line and our ability to quickly respond to our customers’ design and delivery requirements make us the provider of choice for our multi-national customer base. We differentiate ourselves by providing our customers with a substantially complete line of passive component solutions. This broad array of products allows our customers to streamline their purchasing and supply organization.
