Fab tool production is the place where we still have strong Japanese brands. Unfortunetelly they have lost battle against Taiwanese and Chinese co. at semi market. We see only Renesas shining there yet at fab tool behind ASML and Applied there are still strong Japanese fellows we've. However at least for Nikon there is problem of extereme litho. which is hopefully going to be solved soon. As a consequence growing semiconductor market at late Q4-09 and at Q1,2-10 , many fabs were hungry for tools, thats the deep light behind besides as market goes recession tool orders are going on hold or postponed
